Rapper Eminem on NRA: ‘They’re responsible… they control the puppet’

Rapper Eminem took a shot at the nation’s gun lobby Sunday while performing at the IHeartRadio Music Awards.

Before he launched into his song, “Nowhere Fast,” featuring Kehlani, he singled out the National Rifle Association suggesting it was responsible for the mass killing in Parkland, Florida.

“This whole country is going nuts/ and the NRA is in our way/ they’re responsible for this whole production/ they hold the strings, they control the puppet,” rapped Slim Shady.

I know articles on pro-gun websites that bash anti-gun musicians or actors for profiting off of violent depictions in their work have sorta jumped the shark by now, there have been so many instances over the years from Rambo to the Irish bloke who played that operator whose daughter keeps getting abducted by Albanian sex traffickers, that you probably feel that you don’t really need to read another one.

You know how the story goes. Famous jerk says we need to ban guns, destroy the NRA, repeal the 2A. Then said Jerk puts out a movie or a song glorifying violence. Hypocrisy at its finest.

I’ll agree that we don’t need another one of those articles. We don’t. But it’s so hard to resist the temptation to do just one more. Especially when you’re dealing with a chucklehead like Eminem whose lyrics over the years have been mired in the macabre.

For example, this lovely gem on the treatment of women, from the song “Low, Down Dirty,” that reads, “Slap dips, support domestic violence/ Beat your bitch’s ass while your kids stare in silence.”

Once you’re done beating your spouse (or an acquaintance’s spouse), you should take the party to the streets. Like so, “I’m the illest rapper to hold a cordless, patrolling corners/ Looking for hookers to punch in the mouth with a roll of quarters,” from “4 Quarters.”

And, in the same ditty, he extends the fun to mentally handicapped children. “Met a retarded kid named Greg, with a wooden leg/ Snatched it off and beat him over the fucking head with the peg.”

Warms the cockles. Doesn’t it? Those are just the tip of the iceberg, really. He raps about raping an 8th-grade swim team, taking his daughter on a trip to throw away the carcass of her dead mother, and murderous ideations concerning his ex-wife Kim. All in the name of art and entertainment.

Anyways, you get the point.  Add Eminem to the ever-growing list of Hollywood hypocrites.

    If this middle aged “rapper” believes that the NRA is to blame when a firearm is used to commit a crime then he must also credit the NRA every time a firearm is use prevent a crime by a law abiding person. I doubt he is able to consider more than one factor of this issue.

  • Hondo March 23, 2018, 11:17 pm

    Is this wigger even relevant anymore ? Can you Vanilla Ice ?

  • Andrew N March 18, 2018, 8:49 pm

    I couldn’t I.D. one of his songs if my life was on the line. I have never thought of his caterwauling as music, just useless, unwanted noise. Turns out I was right.

  • PPB March 17, 2018, 2:47 pm

    Rapper!! A**H*** probably has more guns and drugs than anyone.

  • ArturS March 16, 2018, 10:56 pm

    And who is it? The blame for the tragedy lies with the producers of delicious donuts for policemen. I want to answer this singer’s mouth with a quote from Madona “F….. …!”.

  • Campbell King March 16, 2018, 4:37 pm

    Mug n Mug…;Remember when this ass came down on a rope with no pants on n his ass landed on some dude in audience ? I saw it on news later .

  • Click Bang March 16, 2018, 3:41 pm

    I will never hear what Enema M has to say…. Rap is just a social disease and I remain STD free….

  • Click Bang March 16, 2018, 3:37 pm

    Mother goose would be so proud of this moron and his fourth grade lyrics….. He should be the longest standing member of the Church of Pathetic Hope….

    • plugurears March 16, 2018, 4:40 pm

      It doesn’t even rhyme. Sounds like diarrhea of the mouth.

  • Max Hoyle March 16, 2018, 1:48 pm

    Its more likely that asshole rapers are responsible for school Volonce!

  • Dave Brown March 16, 2018, 1:47 pm

    Gunner for 54 or my 66 years. Seen most everything, and the 21 year age ain’t no big thing. The NRA brought me into firearms at the age of 12, they used attraction and education, and a lot of gunners took them up on it like me. Today, I won’t give them one buck as they have lost their way, and are only doing this for The Money.

  • Salty Dog March 16, 2018, 1:34 pm

    Rappers! Such powerful and influential voices, striving to reduce misogyny, drug and alcohol abuse, gang violence, and to serve as positive role models for the youth of America. Always promoting a culture of responsible personal behavior, and dedicated, conscientious parenting! Well, except for the occasional pro-gun blasphemy like “when the s*%t goes down, ya better be ready” and “ever heard a Glock go click like a camera?” from Cypress Hill. A rare exception.

  • Chastran March 16, 2018, 1:13 pm

    I detest enemas…

  • Charlie March 16, 2018, 11:53 am

    Consider the source! Social freak.

  • Al March 16, 2018, 10:54 am

    That’s as intellectually devoid as it gets.
    For example, IF the NRA were controlling the “Puppet” (who is this “puppet”, since we very obviously didn’t control Obama)
    then the NRA wouldn’t have a worry in the world, now would they?
    And how does that speak to those in power on the side he claims affinity to in this issue?
    Are we to believe that the DNC and its proponents are all but powerless?
    8 YEARS the Obama admin had to ‘fix’ any problems, and what did they get?
    NO Obamacare worth speaking of, NO relief from poverty (it went UP under Obama), NO relief from war, NO free college, NO immigration fix and in fact, not a single thing Obama promised in his campaign ever came to fruition.
    Puppet?!? What Puppet?
    This man is a simpleton.

  • Bob March 16, 2018, 10:53 am

    This freaking clown is just an absolute waste of space on the earth and needs to go away. Loser loser, loser…

  • D.J. March 16, 2018, 10:14 am

    Are we all to believe that these “rappers” are the ones in our nation whom have
    the greatest intellectual dexterity among us ?

  • armando March 16, 2018, 10:12 am

    Jim Brown once said ” Rap music is the worst thing thats ever happened to the black community”. Pants Up Don’t Loot!

    • Delilah Blue June 13, 2018, 6:16 pm

      Rap music is the worst thing to happen to the black community… really?? I mean REALLY?? Wow… how disconnected from reality do you have to be from reality to believe that bullshit??

  • kane March 16, 2018, 8:40 am

    Rap music has glorified gang warfare et cetera for years and now a middle aged \”rapper\” tries to posture with a threatening prediction. Of course blame the NRA and not the \”entertainment industry.\” .

  • GMan March 16, 2018, 7:48 am

    Scientists are working day and night to try to create an instrument sensitive enough to detect any trace that I give a f0ck what Eminem or any of his cronies think.

  • willy March 16, 2018, 5:43 am

    Anyone who states the NRA is responsible for mass murders and advocates for such violence has no idea what the NRA is about, and should be not taken seriously, except for the danger their ignorance represents.

    • joefoam March 16, 2018, 9:51 am

      Good luck trying to educate the simple minded fools who actually listen to this guy and spend money on his CDs as to what the NRA stands for. They probably don’t know what the Constitution is, much less what their rights are. Ignorance and fear are the best weapons to control the masses. Ask the Nazis how well it worked for them until the Allies put a stop to it.

  • Lance March 16, 2018, 3:15 am

    Isn’t that knucklehead facing another weapons possession charge?

    • Delilah Blue June 13, 2018, 6:26 pm

      Nope…. nice try, though… bringing up weapons charges that were adjudicated in 2001… as with “most” folks, he’s grown up a lot since then, and *gasp* has changed his mind…

  • bbbs53 March 16, 2018, 3:14 am

    “rappers” and music is an oxymoron, and speaking of morons, this guy’s picture ought to be in Webster’s next to the word.

  • Eric Claeyborn March 14, 2018, 7:09 am

    Eminem doesn’t know what “being responsible” means. Just listen to his trashy lyrics. It’s no wonder our kids act like animals.

    • Jason March 16, 2018, 4:35 am

      I never heard his “music” but I am sure it’s violent and talks trash about women.

  • Blue Dog March 13, 2018, 3:36 pm

    You only add credibility to this miscreant by being outraged by what he says. Ignore him, much the same way the rest of the world ignores him most of the time.

  • Mark March 12, 2018, 6:36 pm

    A white guy who acts black, singing monkey music. And he’s rich because douche bags in this country run out and purchase his crap. God help us!

    • S.H. Blannelberry March 12, 2018, 6:51 pm

      Mark, you’re being racist.

      • Mark March 12, 2018, 10:45 pm

        It’s time to quit being scared of being called racist and tell it like it is.

        • Steven March 16, 2018, 4:24 am

          Singing?

      • shrugger March 16, 2018, 3:16 am

        Didn’t that word used to have some kind of meaning? Been so long I’ve forgotten.

      • willy March 16, 2018, 5:46 am

        No, he’s not a racist at all. He just stated it like it is. Racist, by the way, can not be determined by a single comment or act. Racism can only be determined by a long term pattern of behavior. So anyone that uses the word racist as you did for one comment, is just plain ignorant, and is likely just riding along on the bandwagon.

        • Bob March 16, 2018, 10:58 am

          willy,
          You are an ignorant human being. I was able to determine that just by reading your comment on this page. Stick to listening to your rap music from your heroes and spare the rest of us from having to gloss over your dribble….

    • Chris Matthews March 16, 2018, 10:15 am

      Dislike his “music” all you want, but you’re an even bigger douche bag when you add a racist connotation to it.

      • Delilah Blue June 13, 2018, 6:29 pm

        Yes, thank you… a voice of reason…

  • Marshall Mathers March 12, 2018, 5:55 pm

    We’re out of our medicine, out of our minds, and we want in yours…
    Let us in!!!!
    – Marshall Mathers

    If you’re the type whose opinion is influenced by that of your favorite entertainer, then you’re almost certainly stupid enough to benefit from taking Slim Shady’s advise seriously. In which case, I recommend you stop what you’re doing right now, go procure Eminem’s entire career library of work and start studying each word carefully…ha!

  • Mrninjatoes March 12, 2018, 4:37 pm

    Eminem…lol 45 year old rapper still using a street name. He needs to retire. It’s just embarrassing at this point.

    • Bobs yer uncle March 12, 2018, 6:00 pm

      When someone says “burned out, has been” he’s the classic example.

  • Sepp W March 12, 2018, 4:35 pm

    Irrelevant, immaterial, and incompetent.

    • Michael March 16, 2018, 7:49 am

      His music is inspiring- I just purchased an AR15!!! For real
