Bad enough listening to rap, but this?

I wonder if they can get a blurb from Mullah Omar?

TOp hits of the Taliban? Oh, no, they wack you for music. . .

I hope Mullah Omar keeps an eye out for these guys. . .

Wow! How incredibly pervasive. How can Brits even hold their heads in the air? A down trodden, beaten down white population that allows this to go and then, AND THEN is made to feel guilty. “Those dirty colonialists.” Ugh, I guess saving the world will be left to assimilated, patriotic, freedom loving minorities…

Theworldisnotenough on June 29, 2006 at 10:00 AM

Like I needed another reason to dislike Rap.

Hening on June 29, 2006 at 10:01 AM

Color me wrong…but doesn’t the Islmaic Puriatans consider Music to be herasey, and extreme physical punishment inflicted on those in possession of any???

havok on June 29, 2006 at 10:05 AM

Yea, that’s REAL special. Wonder what expression these idiots will have on their face when REAL practicing Muslim’s saw off their heads.

NRA4Freedom on June 29, 2006 at 10:08 AM

havok: the Taliban forbid music, assuming that’s who you mean by Islamic Puritans. What a grim thought.

honora on June 29, 2006 at 10:09 AM

Islamic rappers. The worst of both worlds and it shows.

Ewww, my speakers have been soiled.

Ah – so that’s what Ward Churchill’s up to these days. I was wondering what he was doing for a new gig! Thanks for the 411 on that.

Aren’t some of these charming chaps way overdue for a meeting with an American tactical nuke? You know its coming sooner later … why not just get it over with? C’mon.

Speaking of weapons of mass destruction – could there be anything more painful than rapping in French?

Professor Blather on June 29, 2006 at 10:59 AM

Great Vent Michelle! Well thought out and presented with relevant information. Now all we need is Ann Coulter on Hot Air too! (Wow, I wonder what both Michelle and Ann on the same site do for hits/readership? It would be enough to make the MSM jealous as their numbers continue to decline……)

Another confirmation of the Muslim true intention and mindset is revealed. Is anyone surprised? The question is when our government recognizes the true nature of Islam and responds in an effective and meaningful way to the “religion of peace”.

In my opinion agressive confrontation is the only language the Muslim understands. The ability and willingness to use power of all types (military, political, economic, cultural, technological)is what the Muslim relates to – and the only thing they will respond to. If this ability and willingness to use power to their detriment is not present the only progress towards peace with the Muslim will be an illusion. The Muslim cannot be trusted to keep their word with the “infidel” (thats us from their perspective).

omegaram on June 29, 2006 at 11:25 AM

Ahhh… but you don’t get it…

MUSIC is heresy in some Moslem communities…

BUT… is Rap music???

How soon till MTV starts handing Music Video Awards to these Jihad Islamic Rap Groups? :| Unless MTV already has but in secret..

Brah on June 29, 2006 at 12:02 PM

Complete and utter garbage. MM, a salute to you and all the crew here at HotAir for the torture in having to listen to this trash over and over again while you set up this segment. That should be covered under the Geneva convention. And the libs want to complain about the music played at Gitmo…

jcon96 on June 29, 2006 at 12:14 PM

I’m a little disappointed that this vent didn’t show Michelle dancing/rapping as the still shot suggests … ;)

thirteen28 on June 29, 2006 at 12:21 PM

Michelle looks good in camouflage, needless to say.

JammieWearingFool on June 29, 2006 at 1:16 PM

Maybe these “artists” could do a Global Warming benefit tour with the Dixie Chicks opening for them?

Dave Shay on June 29, 2006 at 1:27 PM

After watching that, Death Metal doesn’t seem so bad.

Kini on June 29, 2006 at 1:43 PM

Thanks for keeping the “Rap” clips short. There is no way I could have made it all the way through the segment if they hadn’t been fully offset by your commentary. Still, I hope this doesn’t need to be re-addressed any time too soon again.

TBinSTL on June 29, 2006 at 1:48 PM

Unbelievable! and some on the left don’t think that the goal of these people is eliminate us from the face of the earth?

Lets see if I have this right, Hadji Girl is covered and distorted ad nauseam and this crap flys under everyones radar. Where is the outrage at “people” delighting in and laughing about 9/11 and claiming it was for allah ppbuh (pig piss be upon him)

Countdown to liberal trolls equating this with the “Hadji Girl” video and labeling us as hypocrites in 4… 3… 2…

Another article on jihadi rap from FrontPage.

SeafoodGumbo on June 29, 2006 at 3:31 PM

I have read the comments here and I am concerned that we as a whole may be missing what I consider to be an important point here. Below are some cut and pasted bits:

Like I needed another reason to dislike Rap.

Islamic rappers. The worst of both worlds and it shows.

Ewww, my speakers have been soiled.

BUT… is Rap music???

Complete and utter garbage. MM, a salute to you and all the crew here at HotAir for the torture in having to listen to this trash over and over again while you set up this segment.

Thanks for keeping the “Rap” clips short.

I think it is safe to say that all of us are united in condemning the message behind this music. But it seems to me that a lot of us also think that this is bad music as well. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Let me spell out my position very clearly:

This is good music.

When I first saw this Dirty Kuffar music video, I knew what it was. A jihadist message of hate. But it has a good beat and catchy lyrics. The visuals in the video are dramatic and invigorating. It has a good storyline. The rhythm and cadence quickly became apparent and appealing and drew me in. And it has a great opening hook as well, using the footage of the Marines shooting the Iraqi. After that, when the video starts, you feel a natural affinity for it and get pulled into it. And that is the whole point of the video. To pull you in. And it works. Dangerously well.

Do I approve of this video. No. I hate it and everything it stands for, but I do respect it. I may hate my terrorist sniper enemy, but if he can hit me from 800 meters away while staying concealed, you bet your ass I will respect his skill and lethality. So it is with this video. It is skillful and dangerous.

Some have mocked this sort of music and comparisons to the Sex Pistols. They have said this shows how pretentious the music community can be, by attempting to harness their pseudo-rebellious angst to the international bad boy of Islamic Jihad, but that all it really is is sound and fury, signifying nothing. I hope so. But I am not so sure. I think that music is a very powerful thing, and the idea of it being harnessed and working for the benefit of the jihad is very scary. I think this sort of rebellion has always been in our music scenes, but never before has it had anything like jihad to attach itself to. I think this sort of music can and will further radicalize segments of youth. But some will take it further than tuning in and dropping out. They will blow up as well.

Look at the huge impact music in the 60′s had on the culture and the impact of the Vietnam war. But there it was mostly aimed at getting us out of Vietnam. And social upheaval followed. Now imagine the same musical force, but now actually advocating going over to the other side and actually fighting for the other side. Even though the music certainly won’t make everyone who listens to it a jihadist who will travel overseas to fight, it certainly can sway public opinion away from supporting the secular nations state and cause discord and division.

Might I be exaggerating the effects and powers of music? Perhaps. And I hope so. But make no doubt about it, there are segments of the population where this music is very popular. They listen to it, and they like it. I believe music like this is a factor in some of the results from the worldwide poll of Muslim opinions recently reported on here at HotAir. I think I remember that Muslim public opinions in England were much more negative than many people expected.

In conclusion, I think this music is dangerous precisely because it is good. If it was ridiculous like Borat or Ali G characters from “The Ali G Show” it wouldn’t be dangerous. The Dirty Kuffar video, despite what I saw as its talents, nonetheless had a certain, less than professional feel to it. It seemed like something mixed by a few guys in their home studio. But what about this Aki Nawaz of “Fun-da-mental” and his “All is War” album? I suspect it will be much more slickly and professionally produced, with what looks like may be as dangerous of a theme as “Dirty Kuffar.”

EFG on June 29, 2006 at 4:08 PM

Good point Seafood Gumbo.

EFG on June 29, 2006 at 4:10 PM

First: Rap is not music. I don’t know what exactly to call it, but it ain’t music.

Second: Michelle even makes cammo look goood… you go girl!

Lawrence on June 29, 2006 at 4:24 PM

Great points EFG.

Regardless of how one feels about a class of music, disregard it at your peril.

I know this one lady who is fairly feministic. Yet I have caught her singing “Hard out her fo a pimp” and some other rap about “bitches and hoes”.
She see’s nothing wrong with these rap songs which dehuminise women into nothing more then a sexual object. But if you call her “Hun” she is ready with a swift kick in the nads, a law suit, or both. The rythm and beat drew her in, and she ignores the lyrics. I don’t think she is even aware she sings the words.
Music is powerfull, and the message gets through.

Wyrd on June 29, 2006 at 4:57 PM

EFG, we’ll have to agree to disagree – rap is NOT good music. It sucks like an industrial strengh vacuum cleaner.

That being said, you underlying theme that it’s cultural influence should be taken seriously is on the money.

thirteen28 on June 29, 2006 at 4:59 PM

EFG is right in that we need to take this very slickly produced cultural threat seriously. Even if you hate rap, that’s not the point. The point is that people who do like rap, who I might point out often harbor anti-American and anti-white feelings, could very easily be seduced by this music and its message.

It’s moving from hidden buzz words like “science” sprinkled in rap lyrics to more overt expressions of support for jihad.

As mentioned above, music is how many young people define themselves and how they separate into cliques. In high school, the head-bangers, punk rockers, hip-hop heads, and hippies all defined themselves largely based on the music they listen to.

SeafoodGumbo on June 29, 2006 at 5:15 PM

The superimposition of laughter over the footage of the WTC towers attack, the extolling of the virtues of bombicide attacks, the wearing of ski-masks, to just point out a few, are clear indications that these “songs” and videos are meant to be provocative.

As much as we would like to see them eliminated, we must keep in mind that the creators of this urinous stream of drivel are the enemy’s useful idiots. They are not the hopeful architects of the fall of the west.

ztep86 on June 29, 2006 at 5:35 PM

Rap and “The Religion of Peace!”(TM) are like the concept of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup:

Jihadi: “Hey, you got anti-social, nihilistic lyrics into my violent, intolerant religion!”

Rappa: “Hey, you got violent, intolerant religion into my anti-social, nihilistic lyrics!”

Both: “Mmmmm…..”

Oh, well, at least they’re being more creative than the same ol’, same old: you know, the lyrics that were just tedious variations of,

Ooga-booga steal dat car; drive me where da white b*tches are; I’m gonna kill me some cops, den’ I’m gonna drive back to my crib and b*tch-slap my ho…”

Like others here, what crossed my mind immediately was that these rappas ought to be thankful that they’re doin’ their spewin’ here, instead of in Taliban Afghanistan: first they’d get the sh*t beaten out of them, then get to watch while all their CDs and cassettes got destroyed. Which, come to think about it … oh, never mind.

Lastly, a minor quibble, truth-in-advertising wise: based on her pose, I was soooo hoping to see Michelle do some sort of rap dance – you know, like a cross between the Dance of the Seven Veils and the Hootchie-Koo. But, no. Darn! She does look good in camo, though … Michelle, you can share a foxhole with me anytime.

In my town outside Detroit, rap is all I hear in cars of both black and white teens. I think because it is gangsta, and riles adults, the teens surround themselves with it.

Don’t think K-rap (Kill-Kuffar-rap) will be banned by the Taliban. A major principle of Islam is ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend’.

This music will be allowed because it promotes islamic purification and kuffar kleaning. The kids will seize on it because it allows them to have hip music, dumps on the kuffars and makes the never to assimilate get off.

I live in the largest muslim center in the US. There is an in-your-face radicalization going on right now. The number of women completely covered is increasing sharply. There is a lot less attempt to appear assimilated, and more overt displays of contempt like I havent seen since 911.

Funny, not, many adults hate rap so much they dont listen to the words unless they hear b**tch or h* or sex words so anti kuffars can turn up the volume in their cars and laugh when the smiling Kuffars don’t catch the message.

By the way, Michelle now has the best TV show on the internet. I wish she could run a network, it would be awesome.

I’ve heard some troubling things about the Detroit area as well, although I am not in or arround that area. Can you say about when this sharp increase in radicalization and women in burkas appeared?

havok on June 29, 2006 at 10:05 AM

Havok: Yes, Islamic Puritans are anti-music, etc., but it all depends on the need for a workable, justifiable double standard. Hence, if the need is there, religious double standards are OK, especially when terrorists are viewed as being heroes who want to destroy America, non-Muslims, and anyone who does not bow East when praying.

That is interesting. Here, were I live, there are many Muslims (some are Afghan-Soviet War vets). I find that the very young girls (pre-teen) wear the head scarf and long modified burka, and of course, many older women wear the tradional headscarf, dress, and some wear burkas. But the 18-35 range wear a mixture of conservative/revealing outfits-headscarfs and tight jeans, low cut tops, tight t-shirts, belly t-shirts, etc. Some even sport tatoos on the arm, feet, and on their boobs. I guess it depends on the area where they live, whether the parents to a certain extent realize that assimilation is necessary or….

it could be a plot to ease the harsh reputation of Islam by having Muslim women dress in more revealing styles to gain neighborhood trust until it is time to strike. Remember, terrorists do what they must in order to gain victory. The terrorists who walk among us are instructed to drop Islamic ways (drink booze, go to the dance halls, take in a topless bar now and then, etc) to assimilate and avoid suspicion.

I seem to recall a news report that after the 9/11 murders, a Saudi Arabian govt minister arrived and the women on his staff were wearing tight jeans, t-shirts, etc., clothing not permitted in Saudi Arabia.

The False Dervish on June 30, 2006 at 9:08 AM

I forgot to add that not all Muslim women are involved in terrorism. Indeed, some have decided (at great risk to themselves) that they want to wear American styles and stut their stuff, so to speak. Not all Muslims are strick Puritans. The Koran is interpreted differently in different parts of the world.

But, nonetheless, vigilance is always a must.

The False Dervish on June 30, 2006 at 9:10 AM

stut their stuff,

Whoops! I meant STRUT their stuff! My bad!

The False Dervish on June 30, 2006 at 9:16 AM

and we’re soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo evil

this makes me sick to my stomach… I actually feel queazy watching that video of the jihad rappers chuckling as the WTC towers came down.
