RUSH: Obama said at this fundraiser last night, "It's rare that I come to an event where I'm, like, the fifth or sixth most interesting person." Now, Obama does not have an accomplished sense of humor. He's not known as a jokester. Obama doesn't know, really, how to make people laugh.
He doesn't have comedic timing. He's too narcissistic to think there's anything about him that's funny. Thinking of himself as humorous is a self putdown. So he actually said to these people, "It's rare that I come to an event where I'm, like, the fifth or sixth most interesting person." One of the NBA "heroes" that appeared with Obama last night was Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks, formerly of the Denver Nuggets. Now, Carmelo Anthony is featured in a DVD circulating in his hometown of Baltimore.
"Stop Snitchin'" is the name of the DVD, and it shows drug dealers talking about the terrible things that happen to people who cooperate with the police. Carmelo Anthony of the "New Yawk Knicks," with a DVD called "Stop Snitchin'". He's appearing there with Obama, and the DVD tells drug dealers what happens to 'em if they talk to the cops, if they cooperate with the police. One of the men on the DVD goes on tell how he would take care of snitches by "putting a hole in their head."
Obama's appearing with a guy who is one of the sponsors of this DVD!
I didn't know this 'til I read this story.
I don't keep up with the NBA anymore. There was a time I used to, but I don't keep up with it anymore. Apparently these are the kinds of people that Obama and his campaign considers to be heroes. (summarized) "Yeah, don't snitch to the cops! Let me tell you what happens. You snitch to the cops -- you participate, you cooperate -- you end up with a hole in your head." That's a video being circulated in Baltimore. Carmelo Anthony is part of it, and he's appearing there with Obama. And Obama is saying it's very rare that he goes anywhere where he's, "like, the fifth or sixth most interesting person"?
Here's the story. Daniel Halper wrote it. "This evening in New York City, President Obama will be fundraising with 'NBA heroes,' according to his spokesman. Those 'heroes' include Michael Jordan (who is also a failed baseball player), Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning, and, perhaps most interestingly, Carmelo Anthony. Anthony helped make the pro-drugs YouTube video called 'Stop Snitchin.'" This thing says Denver Nuggets star, but he's with the Knicks now.
"'Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony is featured in an underground DVD that is circulating in his hometown of Baltimore, Md,' the Denver Channel reported. The DVD is called 'Stop Snitchin'' and shows alleged drug dealers talking about what happens to people who cooperate with the police, and Anthony is standing next to one of them. He is also seen on the DVD talking about his Olympic bronze medal and saying that he threw it in a lake. The man he stands next to later goes on to tell how he would take care of snitches by 'putting a hole in their head.' However, Anthony does not appear to be taking part in that portion of the discussion." But it's on the DVD.
These are Obama's heroes. These are who he's hanging with.
