Eminem is desperate for attention for his new album. He’s in his 40s now and has been gone long enough from the rap scene that when he showed up again with his now infamous and terrible Trump rant (looking almost unrecognizable and sounding worse), pretty much no one cared, especially his target. And so he’s out doing what he does best: exploiting gay people and women for attention. Why do the LGBTQWTFs and #MeToo crowd put up with it? For years, Eminem was famous for his blatantly homophobic lyrics that included raps about killing gays and “faggots.”
And who could forget all those songs about killing and dismembering his ex-wife?
This is not new news. Eminem’s entire career has been built on offending mostly women and gays. Now all of a sudden we’re supposed to believe he’s “woke” and a crusader for all the right causes because he hates Trump. Just a few years ago he was exploiting the gay experience of coming out by mocking it so he could get attention for another album. Via Billboard:
Anyone who tuned out their family and tuned in The Interview on Xmas day was treated to an Eminem cameo where the rapper — who is frequently accused of homophobia for using the very bad f-word consistently — comes out as gay.
Of course, the entire thing is scripted and presumably not real, but Marshall Mathers deadpans the scene convincingly. “I’m more shocked that people haven’t figured it out yet,” Eminem tells James Franco’s character. “I’ve been playing gay peek-a-boo for years. I’ve pretty much been leaving a gay bread crumb trail.”
Hilarious. Except coming out usually isn’t hilarious for gay people. Most recently he said in an interview with Vulture that he uses the gay hook-up app Grindr to find dates.
Do you date?
It’s tough. Since my divorce I’ve had a few dates and nothing’s panned out in a way that I wanted to make it public. Dating’s just not where I’m at lately.
When you were dating, how’d you meet people? Tinder?
I mean, yeah.
Are you being serious?
[Laughs] And Grindr. I also used to go to strip clubs.
Not even Gay Star News knows what to think of that, but they seem willing to accept the joke. That would make Eminem one of the only people on the planet who is allowed to joke about gays without being labeled a hater and a homophobe. Why does Marshall Mathers (Eminem’s real name) get a pass from the most overly sensitive and easily offended community that exists? Isn’t this at the very least cultural appropriation? Eminem appropriates gay identity when he wants to for attention and album sales, calls them names, wishes death on them in lyrics, and then gets lauded by them for some of the most mangled lyrical nonsense ever written just because it’s anti-Trump.
That’s an awfully hot coffee potShould I drop it on Donald Trump? Probably notBut that’s all I got ’til I come up with a solid plotGot a plan and now I gotta hatch itLike a damn Apache with a tomahawkImma walk inside a mosque on RamadanAnd say a prayer that every time Melania talks…
But dog how the f*ck is Ivanka Trump in the trunk of my car.
Gotta get to the bottom of it to try to solve it.
Must go above and beyond, ’cause it’s incumbent upon.
Me, ’cause I feel somewhat responsible for the dumb little blonde girl.
That motherf*ckin’ baton twirler that got dumped in the pond.
And f*ck Ann Coulter with a Klan poster.
With a lamp post, door handle, shutter.
A d*mn bolt cutter, a sandal, a can opener, a candle, rubber.
Piano, a flannel, sucker, some hand soap, butter.
A banjo and manhole cover.
And yet, the #MeToo movement isn’t demanding Eminem sit down and shut up and do some listening to the endless parade of female victims who were offended at wolf whistles and offers for dates. Instead, the left is ignoring his approval of rape as a tool to control women he hates and applauding his “bravery” for standing up to Trump (whatever that means). They’re now featuring him adoringly on radio shows. YouTube even made his lame anti-Trump rant the number one video trending for about a week. Again, a known and admitted homophobic misogynist is pushed by all the mainstream press just in time to sell his new album full of rape threats and homophobic slurs.
Makes you wonder how serious these people really are about sexual harassment, doesn’t it? Obviously, Toby Keith could never get away with lyrics like Eminem’s because he supports the wrong politicians. But support the right ones and you can not only rap about raping women, but you can actually rape them just like Harvey Weinstein did for all those years, protected by the Clintons and the Obamas. What a world!
Who’s taking bets on how long until Eminem is disowned by the victim groups he offends? My money is on never.
