(C)Rapper Lil Wayne Walks On American Flag During Video Shoot

Video below, and story from NY Daily News.
Political protest or accidental flag faux pas?
Filming for Lil Wayne’s “God Bless Amerika” music video in New Orleans is under scrutiny after a clip of his performance shows an oversized American flag drop to the street before Wayne tramples Old Glory as he raps.
It may have been overlooked, if not for the incendiary lyrics in the song:
“My country ‘tis of thee/ sweet land of kill ‘em all and let ‘em die/ God bless Amerika/ This so godless Amerika … the stars on the flag are never shining,” the song, off this year’s “I Am Not a Human Being II,” goes.
The one-minute clip shows Weezy, 30, singing in front of the huge red, white and blue flag before it’s let go onto the Hollygrove, New Orleans, street. The drop reveals a group of people standing behind Wayne as he continues to rap, stepping all over the flag as he dances and moves in his hometown.
“All Americans should treat (the flag) with respect,” said John Raughter, an American Legion spokesman speaking generally about the flag and who admitted he had yet to see the clip. “It is the American flag that is draped across the coffins of our fallen heroes when they come back from war. In fact, any veteran can have a flag on their coffin. As such, it’s entitled to the highest respect.”

Wonder if Richard Milhous Obama will reconsider being a fan of this crapper? Or maybe he'll have him over to the White House for dinner after this.

This country is quickly falling to pieces. This behavior is beyond disgusting. The Flag stands for this Proud country and if this fool wants to stamp on the flag, he needs to be declared a Traitor. Has he forgotten our Troops over seas fighting for what that Flag stands for? Idiot.

However, what's even more disgusting is that you racist scumbags are relating this all back to Obama, basically try to make this HIS fault! That is really stretching.

The reference is to Soviet-controlled AmeriKa with a K, not a C. Critical difference, this makes. He is denounci g Obama's Soviet-inspired usurpation of America, and socialism/communism in a more general sense.

This is coming from the guy who wrote a song and video to the novel "Atlas Shrugged".
