Lil Wayne

Tramples

American Flag

Lil Wayne
trampled the American flag over the weekend ... and there's footage.

Weezy performed the stunt while shooting his new music video for "God Bless Amerika" in New Orleans.

During the shoot, Wayne begins rapping in front of a giant American flag ... which is released to the ground. After it's on the floor, Wayne continues to rap ... while stepping all over the stars and stripes.

The lyrics to Wayne's song are just as controversial ... "My country 'tis of thee / Sweet land of kill 'em all and let 'em die / God bless Amerika / This ole' godless Amerika."

So we gotta ask ...

First of all you disgraceful little twit! America is spelled America! NOT Amerika! Second of all, the flag should never have touched the ground in the first place… Thirdly, if you don’t like it here, get the hell out! Lastly, since it’s apparent you are so ignorant; here are a few facts for you! Go to this website to do your research on the Flag of the United States of America.

Lets face it he really doesnt hate America. I think we all love america. What we don't love and I think he is saying the same thing in this song is that American politicians has been hijacked but global corporations that will use American military forces to kill to protect steal foreign resources. And its all being paid for by American tax dollars. He is just dumb enough to believe its actually America that is responsible for all the death. But I guess it is our fault in a way because we keep voting in the same crooks.

So the says "In most people eyes including my own who were raised in that environment, the Hood is the only America they know and the only America I knew growing up," he said. "I was fortunate from my God giving talents to escape the Hood and see the other beautiful places this country has to offer but most people who are born in that environment don't get that chance. That's their view of their America. That was Dwayne M Carter from Hollygrove New Orleans view of America. That's who I'm speaking for in this song.”


if that is what you think then why perpetuate that notion, why not take the blessing you have been given by God and share that to your fan base through your songs
instead of profiting from songs that make others think there is no way out of their situation. People like this and other groups (NAACP) that profit from this idea that whitey is always out to get you and your life in the hood is always going to be this way because the man is keeping you down are the new slave owners to the black community.

should change his name to Lil' Intelligence

Best way to get throuogh this POS is simply boycott his music and products, then let's see if he changes his tune about the flag. Just another piece of s***, no real talent. Nothing to see or hear, just move on .

If he actually was doing it as an anti war/administration, etc stance and backed that fully, I would at least respect his artistic and personal beliefs. But don't lie to me when the video shows you looking at the flag like 3 times at least.

Forget about him stepping on the flag! The concept of the video was to drop the flag down and show the hoods of America, him walking on the flag is not what he was intentionally trying to do to desecrate the Flag. Him walking on the flag is the part of the music video that you're not gonna see when it comes out, because that's not what he was trying to accomplish in the video. But of course when you see the video, you're only gonna pay attention to Wayne walking on the Flag, instead of the concept which is to show that the hood is the only America they know, because they aren't fortunate like most rich spoiled kids are. I wouldn't expect most people who do not live in the hood to understand. Also for everybody that keeps on saying that the Flag was dropped on purpose & that he looked at the ground so he knew that the Flag was there. NO FU*KING **** the Flag was dropped on purpose, did you see what was revealed behind the Flag when it was dropped, or are you that ignorant? All those people weren't standing behind the Flag because they wanted Wayne's Autograph, They Were Part Of The Video! & what people don't understand (because TMZ stay telling BS) is that when he said he didn't step on the Flag on purpose, he didn't mean that he didn't see it there, he meant that he didn't step on it intentionally to desecrate the Flag like most people stay saying. He had to continue performing because him walking on the Flag is the part of the music video that you're not gonna see!!!

He should live in Russia and stump on their flag or in a Muslim country. He is a coward, pure and simple and so are those who applaud his actions.

For the person Joe how dear you say that you suggest that you let the Vets get ahold of lil wayne, I tell you something right now my heart goes out to them Vets because this same country we call America is the same country that called Vets baby killers and the whole 9 yards. There was no glory for them,ask a Vet the next time you.No its god bless the Vets. Land of the free "what is free"!
