Rapper, former Crip, and wagger of finger Snoop Dogg jumped on social media last week to protest the decision by Facebook and Instagram to ban Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan from their platforms for inciting hatred.
Snoop, who enjoys the refreshing beverage Gin & Juice, urged his followers to post their favorite Farrakhan videos and “show some love to a real brother.”
Farrakhan delights in referring to Jews as ‘termites’ and once called Hitler ‘a great man.’ The good Reverend also claimed that Jews were involved with the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
Snoop claimed Farrakhan was “putting the truth out there” and that “I stand with him, ban me ‘motherf***er.”
Fun Fact: In 1993, Snoop Dogg was charged with murder, following the death of a gang member who was allegedly shot and killed by Snoop’s then-bodyguard McKinley Lee. Both Snoop and his ‘trigger man’ (that’s ‘white-speak’ for “the guy who shot the bullets”) were arrested. After two years of house arrest, Snoop was found not guilty on the grounds of self-defense. The case inspired one of Snoop’s most popular songs, “Murder was the Case.”
Hammer and Nigel broke down the moral teachings of his Holiness The Snoop in Tuesday’s edition of “Are You Okay with This?”
“Who is Snoop to give us a moral lecture on anything? This is a guy whose biggest hit from his rap career is bragging about doing drugs and drinking and driving: ‘Rollin down the street, smokin indo, sippin on gin and juice.’ (laid back)
…Also the same guy who was involved in a grisly homicide, but then ultimately skated on the charges. So all the sudden Snoop is the moral high ground on what’s offensive and what’s not offensive.”
“I’ll take a different approach. I’ve never said that Farrakhan should be banned on social media; I just wanted consistency. I want an even playing field. So if you’re going to ban Laura Loomer and Alex Jones, then Farrakhan should have been banned a long time ago just for anti-Semitic remarks alone. I don’t think anyone should be banned.
Listen to this, Hammer: if we do an interview with Alex Jones and post it to our social media accounts, we could get banned. But the tinfoil hat on me if you want, but I can foresee a day when Amazon won’t deliver my groceries because I visited a website they deem offensive.”
