To my Democrat friends,
Please explain to me how this is a positive representation of what the party embraces. I’m talking about the choice of a headliner for a recent rally for Democratic Georgia senatorial candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff. I have to say, when I realized who this was, I literally got sick to my stomach.
Rapper, BRS Kash, appeared at a drive-in rally for the two Senate candidates at a Baptist church in Lithonia just a few days ago. BRS is well-known for his repulsive rap lyrics that definitely cross the misogynistic line of decency. I’ll let you read some of his tweets and rap lyrics HERE. This might be one of the most nauseating individuals I’ve seen in a long time.
My question is why? Why would a campaign choose to feature someone with such a broken moral compass to reach out to voters? I understand I’m not his demographic (far from it), but what does this say about those who support him and by extension, the candidates? What does it say about the campaign? What does it say about the candidates? Why would anyone running for higher office think it was a good idea to yoke their campaign with him? If he wants to sing from the gutter, he has that right, but why would anyone voluntarily accompany him there by association? The screenshot below says it all. Yes, pure, unadulterated trash.
Performers tend to write and sing from their souls and life experiences. Based on the lyrics and statements from BRS, should he be held up and celebrated as a Democrat influencer for everyone to see? But, there’s a long, long list of political people who embrace and support bad behavior from those supporting their narrative while all the while vilifying those with whom they disagree with for the same behavior. There’s a lot of do as I say, not as I do mentality from those in government positions.
It was not that long ago when Democrat congressmen/women were in an uproar about possible questionable behavior from a Supreme Court nominee on the grounds of sexual assault and rape allegations. There was no room on the high court bench for a person who, obviously, had such misogynistic tendencies and disregard for women…even though there was no proof of impropriety. But that didn’t matter. Guilty as charged and unfit to be considered. President Trump has been repeatedly criticized for his derogatory comments and misogynistic remarks. I’d say his worst comments may not rise to the same level of disgust and indecency as what is spewed from the mouth of BRS. But I suppose it’s all okay since he toned down the lyrics of “Throat Baby (Go Baby)” to “Vote Baby” for the rally.
I completely understand BRS is not running for office. But, as we all tell our children, we are judged by the company we keep. Should this be treated any differently? Why are some people given a pass on bad behavior with a wink and a nod while others are vilified for it? It’s all so hypocritical.
I can’t even link up with anyone for this post because there is nothing redeeming about this situation. Sadly, blatant hypocrisy, vilification of others and behavior that defies all decency when it serves to further a narrative seems to be the direction much of our country is headed.
Time will tell what sort of country we want to be…and what we are willing to sacrifice in order to win.
