Is Madonna a Birther ?

Postby The Icy Commander » Tue Sep 25, 2012 7:44 pm

Was she being sarcastic here, or just trying to restart her career.................................again ?

Madonna endorses Obama, calls him a 'black Muslim in the White House'


Speaking to fans at a concert in Washington, D.C. on Monday, Madonna issued a profanity-laced endorsement of Barack Obama, calling him a "black Muslim" who is "fighting for gay rights."

She began her speech with a brief history lesson, calling President Lincoln a "prophet" before jumping to Martin Luther King.

“And they killed him, as they do,” she said.

“And now, it's so amazing and incredible to think we have an African-American in the White House,” she added.

“So, y’all better vote for f**king Obama,” she said to wild cheers.

“For better or for worse…we have a black Muslim in the White House. Now that's some amazing s**t."

Sometimes it helps to get a celeb endorsement, this time not so much.

Well, she's preachin' to the choir. They cheered just as loudly for "black muslim" as they did for "fuck yeah!" :lol:

One other thing, and by the way I have no idea how serious she is here, or if she's just trying to get attention.
But..........................she implies there's hope and progress having a "black Muslim" in the White House.
I've got news for her, if Obama were a Muslim and he were completely open about it, there's not a chance in hell he would have ever been elected president in the first place.

He's not a Muslim, ffs.

Remind me again how Madonna became the go-to expert on Obama's religious preferences? :-s

No Obama would've take Madonna black muslim thing as a light-hearted joke, and she's knows it. Nice Try Icy, but you've failed on this one here.

Madonna's clarified that she knows Obama's not a Muslim (but so what if he were?) -- she was taking a shot at the scare tactics of the president's opposition.

I got it, and if I got it I'm sure her audience got it. Madonna's not a politician, but she can see what's going on.

I'm on the team that thinks Madonna is an idiot and should keep her stupid mouth shut.... Hell she doesn't even live in country...The UK can have her.

Madonna has always been an insecure Ciccone nudge-nudge wink-wink. So often she has resorted to attention-whoring gimmicks rather than just doing her act and letting her talents speak for themselves. There was a time when I would say she was surely good enough and didn't need the gimmick, but apparently she has no intention of gracefully exiting her stardom. She's no birther--just a jerk trying to be relevant in a selfish and ignorant way.

Madonna has always been about shock value and publicity. I just chalk this up to being part of that.

Finally...Finally someone is brave enough to say what we all know and feel, can I get an amen?










































She was joking....so was I.
