“Gangnam Style” rapper: Sorry about how those lyrics about killing U.S. soldiers and their families “could be interpreted”

[I]n 2004, a Korean missionary was captured in Iraq by Islamists who demanded that South Korea not send troops to aid America in the war in Iraq. Seoul refused to negotiate and the missionary was beheaded. The result: massive protests throughout Korea against both Muslim extremism and the U.S. military for indirectly bringing this fate upon a Korean missionary.

As part of the protests, PSY and several other popular Korean musicians put on a live performance of a Korean rock band’s song “Dear American.” When PSY’s turn came, he rapped:

Kill those f*cking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives
Kill those f*cking Yankees who ordered them to torture
Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers
Kill them all slowly and painfully

I don't think he is a us citizen. But, as far as I'm concerned~ he can stay in Korea.

So, how does hating on America and the Iraqi war make him any different than most American musicians?  I don't see people lining up to protest Green Day (for instance).

or system of a down for that matter. in their album BYOB, they have a whole song talking about how the military is horrible, how they aim enlistment at poor men who need to feed their families and pay for school.


**correction, its the album Mezmerize. its the song BYOB. and is primarily about the Iraqi war after 9/11**

I don't give Green day, for example, a penny of my money. So, it's no different, IMO.

I don't think it's a coincidence that he was invited to perform at the WH. This administration seems to thrive on drama and controversy around Christmas. Remember the communist ornaments? LOL

This is really bad. It's one thin to protest the military and war and another to say that you should kill people and their families. What happened to the missionary is horrible and instead of adressi g the killers grief was turned into hate and placed where I didn't belong.
