Lil B On The Las Vegas Mass Shooting: 'Y'all Love This Violence, Don't Cry Now!'

The BasedGod has a message for America.

Published October 2, 2017

 

The homicidal outbreak that left more than 50 people dead and 400 injured in a Las Vegas mass shooting on Sunday (October 1) also left the rest of the nation terrified as footage of the brutal shooting flooded social media and news headlines alike.

 

But though everyone else might find the violent outburst shocking, California’s Lil B The BasedGod believes that with America’s loose gun and violence policies, the nation should have seen this coming all along.

In a lengthy string of tweets, Lil B first called out America’s hypocrisy for these types of tragedies. He reminded us that the mass media’s use of terminology is especially telling, as the Las Vegas shooting was not being accurately named a “terrorist attack” after the shooter, Steven Paddock, was identified as a white male. Had it been a rap concert, Lil B added, he’s not even sure that the shooting would have made it to major news.

“I know if 50 young black man died at a rap concert with saggy pants and dreadlocks nobody would even care!” he tweeted. “They say it’s gang violence - Lil B.”

Retweeting other users supporting his sentiments, he even referred back to Memphis rapper Young Dolph’s recent shooting, which he argued is just as disheartening as the 50-plus people who lost their lives in Las Vegas. As for America, he said, this type of violence has been conditioned into the nation’s fabric long ago.

"America the ones who [taught] me violence through R rated [horror] films and [desensitized] me to violence mad at me? History says this ok - Lil B,” he wrote. “THAT DUDE THAT HURT ALL THOSE FOLKS AT THAT CONCERT PROBABLY WAS A GUN TOTING GUN FETISH LOVING NRA BARING ARMS AMERICAN! YEE HAW! - Lil B.”

“AMERICA BREEDS VIOLENCE AND GUN LOVING YEE HAW DEGENERATE BUSINESSMAN AND WOMEN!! FUCK GUNS!! YALL LOVE THIS VIOLENCE DONT CRY NOW - Lil B.”

He continued his Twitter diatribe by condemning the NRA for their “gun fetishes” and everyone else who he feels isn’t brave enough to put their guns down — namely white people:

“WHITE PEOPLE SO SCARED THEY THE REASON WHY GUNS ARE A PROBLEM IF WHITE PEOPLE PUT DOWN THE GUNZ WE ALL BE SAFE BUT NOPE! THEY [VIOLENT] - Lil B.”

“LETS TALK ABOUT HOW SECRETLY THESE HARMLESS LOOKING WHITE PEOPLE WITH TIGHT PANTS SUITS AND GLASSES ARE PUSHING PASSIVE VIOLENCE! - Lil B”

“LETS TALK ABOUT HOW THESE SUBURBAN 7TH [HEAVEN] LOOKING WHITE PEOPLE SELL DRUGS IN COLLEGE AND ARE OK WITH VIOLENCE ON ALL LEVELS!! - Lil B”

The “I Own Swag” rapper then turned the attention to white women specifically, whom he deemed “sociopaths.” He said that white people believe they are “frail Blonde gifts from God,” and only prioritize statistics because they’re swung in their favor. And if there’s any violent group of people plaguing the nation, according to Lil B, it’s them.

Latino and Asian women were also thrown into the mix:

“WHITE WOMEN REALLY SCARE ME THE MOST [BECAUSE] THEY CAN BE TRUE [SOCIOPATHS]! AND YES LATINO WOMEN AND ASIAN WOMEN ARE FAKE WHITE! LOL - Lil B”

“SEE THE THINGS IS WHITE FOLKS ARE REALLY SCARED! U NO ALL THE WHITE PEOPLE FEEL LIKE THEY ARE FRAIL BLONDE GIFTS FROM GOD ! LOL - Lil B”

“BEING BLACK IN AMERICA I HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE SYSTEM AGINST ME!! WHITE PEOPLE RAGE AGINST THE SYSTEM! YOU FEEL ME NOW YALL FEEL ME - Lil B”

“WHITE PEOPLE LOVE STATISTICS TO!! THEY CANT THINK FOR THEMSELVES WHITE PEOPLE THE BIGGEST FOLLOWERS OF IMAGINARY SCIENCE AND NUMBERS - Lil B”

Yikes. Harsh rhetoric, but is he speaking factually?
