Russell Simmons, Rape Video Clown

By Michelle Malkin - Friday, August 16, 2013

Oh, what a tangled web libs weave when first they practice to aggrieve!

Let’s review: Democrats and civil rights leaders are busy conducting a ridiculous witch hunt against a harmless Missouri rodeo clown who dared to wear an Obama mask. Oprah played the race card on a Swiss shop owner, whom she dubiously accused of denying her a look at a $35,000 handbag because she is black. P.C. mau-mau-ers steamrolled Paula Deen over three-decade-old comments. And feminists continue smearing Republicans as “War on Women” misogynists, while enabling Democratic perv predators Bob Filner and Anthony Weiner for years.

Now, along comes left-wing rap mogul Russell Simmons this week promoting a racially shocking, rape-mocking YouTube video depicting a Harriet Tubman “sex tape” with her white slave master. Tweeted Simmons late Wednesday night: “Funniest thing I’ve ever seen.” The Obama pal and outspoken liberal linked to the vulgar video on his “All Def Digital” YouTube channel.

He’s “Def” all right. Tone Def as a doorknob. Social media users of all races and political backgrounds immediately rose to condemn the pornographic skit degrading an American heroine.

Adrienne Gravish wrote: “I am livid and disgusted. I actually feel like (vomiting). Utter disrespect of Harriet Tubman’s legacy and what she fought for.” Roland Martin wondered: “Do ya even understand the degradation of Black women during slavery? They were RAPED!” Zerlina Maxwell pushed back against Simmons’ “sex tape” spin: “Dear Everyone: It’s not a sex video. Stop putting “sex” in your headlines about Harriet Tubman. #rapetape”

Britni Danielle of clutchmagonline.com summed it up: “Casting an obese Harriet Tubman to play into of the negative stereotypes about Black women’s bodies? Check. Portraying Black women as Jezebels who use sex to get what they want? Check… This video is not only completely unfunny, but it’s a slap in the face to Harriet Tubman, as well as the millions of enslaved African Americans who suffered through the unspeakable horrors of slavery.”

But instead of calling for public boycotts, protests and Justice Department investigations, the NAACP grievance-mongers helped Simmons out by privately advising him to take down the video. The tolerance mob’s crusaders against rodeo clowns couldn’t let a rape video clown knock them off message!

Simmons obliged Thursday morning with a non-apology apology on his media website, GlobalGrind.com (better known for posting naked photos of Rihanna and Lindsay Lohan). He audaciously invoked his liberal immunity card: “When my buddies from the NAACP called and asked me to take down the Harriet Tubman video from the All Def Digital YouTube channel and apologize, I agreed. I’m a very liberal person with thick skin. … I can now understand why so many people are upset. I have taken down the video. Lastly, I would never condone violence against women in any form, and for all of those I offended, I am sincerely sorry.”

Never condoned violence against women in any form? Longtime observers of Simmons’ rise to entertainment-industry power beg to differ. He built his profanity-laced rap empire on sexual degradation, misogyny and violence. Called out by a small number of black feminists, spirituality expert Simmons whined during a promotional interview: “I had a book tour about peace and love, and everyone wants to talk about b*tches and hos.”

Sincere? On Twitter, his tone was decidedly snarkier: “I guess I have a sensitivity chip missing. Lol. Haven’t been in trouble since defjam. Sorry if people r hurt :-(

Simmons has lectured me personally about civil discourse and has shown his misogynist colors. When I called him out during his gun-control jeremiads last year for lying about not using bodyguards, he accused me of being a “stalker” and tweeted: “U are so cute, like a lil kitten :-) why so angry?”

When my website Twitchy.com supported parents who teach their daughters to shoot and published photos of their trips to the gun range, Simmons deemed it “shocking” and insinuated that parents like me who school our girls in self-defense are irresponsible.

Simmons pontificated: “this morning i meditated with my beautiful daughters. shocking that these parents let their kids do this…”

What, pray tell, will this holier-than-thou hypocrite tell his daughters to explain away his shocking, opportunistic Harriet Tubman porn flick? It’s all about the Benjamins, baby. “Lol.”

    As impossible as it sounds, it still just keeps getting worse for what is left of rational, viable America. Add the puerile rubbish of Russell Simmons and his ilk to the long history of dysfunctional black “culture” as well as phenomena such as the O J Simpson politically correct verdict and more recently the black anger over the obviously correct Zimmerman verdict, and it really is time to consider the only solution – a three-nation devolution.

    First and foremost, a separate state for the blacks. Louis Farrakhan, and more recently the Black Panthers, have always been right on this issue. After a 145 years let’s get this settled. Let the Democrat’s endlessly coddled Black American’s own elected body chose the 13% of the US that they want. Yes, Whitey is going to take some big losses as a result but surely it’s better now than when the black population has doubled again.

    Regardless of the current prosperity or otherwise of that annexed portion of America, it will soon end up a UN protectorate 100% dependent on handouts. But, after Haiti’s 210+ years of independence, there already is be a very fitting role model. Indeed, backstreet scenes from Port au Prince and US black ghettos in Detroit, etc. are already largely indistinguishable.

    Next, a referendum to divide the politically-correct Democrat Archipelago from the last division that might well be called, Rational America. Doing this as a state by state referendum will be extremely acrimonious at the local levels but it’s coming regardless. Furthermore, surely the Democrats have already exhausted their hysterical "racist", "redneck", NAZI, Ku Klux, "Hate Speech", etc, name-calling by now so it really won't be any different than it is anyway.

    The “Rational America“ entity would soon become the most successful and yet ironically the most multi-cultural of these divisions. Despite the long running success of the Democrat’s race-bating strategies, in the end, the productive groups such as Vietnamese, Chinese, Filipinos, Koreans, etc, will choose opportunity and self-reliance over the food-stamp wonderland of the Democrats.

    Nevertheless, the Democrat Archipelago will not be particularly perturbed by that as they will still have the “old money” support. i.e., the East and West coast billionaire family empires. But these dynasties did not get their money from being dumb. Well OK, at least the East coast ones did not. And there will be plenty of opportunities for the astute members of that group to quietly move their holdings to more stable domains. However, the result of that will not be Rational America’s problem.

  4. To motivate the students for education, teacher should give them honest and fair grades. There should be no any favoritism among the students as far as the grading is concerned.

  5. Faulkner says:

    The process of assignment writing is very complex and lengthy. The students have to undergo various stages and levels. The selection of topic is very necessary and decisive in the success of finest essay writing assignment. The collection of data is also very significant.
