Soulja Boy

A proud military veteran is demanding an apology from Soulja Boy -- after the rapper posted a video saying, "f**k the army troops."

Soulja ignited a wave of controversy this week over his new song, "Let's Be Real" -- which includes the lyrics:

"F**k the FBI and the army troops ... fighting for what? Be your own man ...
... I'll be flying through the clouds with green like I'm Peter Pan."

TMZ spoke with Fred A. Flores -- a disabled Marine Veteran who is now a commissioner for the L.A. County Veteran’s Advisory Commission. Flores tells us, "It's a very offensive statement ... especially with the 10th anniversary of 9/11 coming up."

Flores -- who has two children currently serving in the military -- calls Soulja "Ungrateful" ... adding, "He should apologize to ALL armed forces."

"[The rap] is very irresponsible," Flores stated ... "especially for a person who is an entertainer for the youth of our country."

Soulja Boy's rep refused to comment.

Though rich, DB is dyill nothing but a product of the "cradle to grave" entitlements crowd. He believes everything should be handed to minorities on a silver platter because they've been kept down by whitey for so long. He's never had to fight for anything and never been at risk of giving the ultimate sacrifice.

And for those minorities among you...and your rich bleeding heart liberal plantation masters...go dig through your hamper and find the pair of pants you left your balls in and stand on your own 2 feet for once without being propped up by the taxpayers or by your racism crutch.

This guy is pretty irrelevant and clearly needed a way to get some attention. Well... you all are giving it to him. See how that works. He's not the first (and won't be the last) to say something that they know will clearly hit a nerve with a large group of people. It gets their name in the spotlight. Give it a couple weeks and he'll do some kind of charity/benefit/something or other to "apologize". (After, of course, letting the desired amount of time pass where people are talking about HIM.) If less people would buy into the intentional attention seeking... stupid stuff like this might not happen so often.
