Fake Wingnut Outrage of the Day: “Anti-American Rapper Psy”

Pearl clutching for fun and profit
Wingnuts • Views: 23,985

Well, it’s Monday, which means it’s time for another huge outburst of hatred and anger from the weird world of wingnuts. Like any other day.

This time it’s kicked off by the always enraged breitbart.com, where blogger Christian Toto is clutching his pearls over South Korean pop star Psy (of “Gangnam Style” fame) and his appearance at the “Christmas in Washington” concert: OBAMA, BIDEN COZY UP TO ANTI-AMERICAN RAPPER PSY.

The right wing started freaking out when it emerged that Psy had once performed a song with some very harsh words for Americans, following an incident in which two South Korean schoolgirls were killed by an armored vehicle driven by American soldiers during a training exercise.

As reported by Buzzfeed, Psy issued a pretty classy and seemingly sincere apology for that performance: Psy Allegedly Rapped ‘Kill Those Fucking Yankees’ in 2004.

“As a proud South Korean who was educated in the United States and lived there for a very significant part of my life, I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world. The song in question — from eight years ago — was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two innocent Korean civilians that was part of the overall antiwar sentiment shared by others around the world at that time,” the statement read. “While I’m grateful for the freedom to express one’s self I’ve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I’m deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused anyone by those words.

“I have been honored to perform in front of American soldiers in recent months — including an appearance on the Jay Leno show specifically for them — and I hope they and all Americans can accept my apology,” the statement concluded. “While it’s important we express our opinions, I deeply regret the inflammatory and inappropriate language I used to do so. In my music I try to give people a release, a reason to smile. I have learned that though music, our universal language we can all come together as a culture of humanity and I hope that you will accept my apology.”

But of course, on Wingnut Planet no apologies are ever accepted unless they’re from right wingers who get caught soliciting sex in airport bathrooms. And if Joe Biden appears in a photo with Psy, and President Obama attends the show, that’s all the Breitbrats need to kick off hundreds of nasty racist comments from their knuckle-dragging audience.

This time, I’ll only quote one of these sick freaks, because it pretty much sums up the breitbart.com zeitgeist:

Just think, how cozy Obama could be with Psy if Psy was a MuSLIME

Just think!
