We’ve already handled Lupe’s factual inaccuracies when criticizing Obama in his controversial single ‘Words I Never Said‘. Now Wasalu is upping the ante by calling Obama “the biggest terrorist” and saying he does not plan to vote since there is no politician he can fully get behind.
It’s a criticism you hear often when people say they don’t vote, variations on “I don’t participate in the system ’cause the system is broken, maaaan,” and it’s a huge crock of bullshit.
If you believe the system is broken then work towards changing that system. You have the tiniest sliver of influence on this system that you say you despise but you can’t even be bothered to use that influence? You can decide your level of activity in the democratic process in any way you see fit, from forming your own political movement to simply stepping into a voting booth and picking out whoever is the least offensive candidate to you. You’re trying to tell me there is no difference between candidates or your vote doesn’t matter? Bull. Shit. If you can care enough to complain about it you should at least care enough to colour a scrap of paper/press a single button for a chance to change what you’re complaining about. There are people in this world getting shot in the face, fighting for nothing more than this right you so callously throw away. You believe your leader is encouraging terrorism with wrongful foreign policy? That is an excellent reason to go out and vote.
Stop disguising apathy as activism, they are very different things.
