BUSTA RHYMES: I DIDN'T MEAN APOCALYPSE WOULD BE 'LITERAL'
'THE WORLD AS WE KNEW IT DID COME TO AN END IN 2001 ... SO MY MATH WAS CORRECT,' BUS TELLS MTV NEWS HOURS BEFORE FAILED DOOMSDAY.
OK, so the world didn't end on December 21 (Friday) as the Mayans predicted, but Busta Rhymes insists that his apocalyptic calculations were still correct.
On his 1996 solo debut album, The Coming, Busta warned "there's only five years left" during the fade-out to his single "Everything Remains Raw." From that moment, hip-hop fans started a doomsday countdown based off the Dungeon Dragon's prophecy. Well, five years came and went and we're still here, and we even survived the Mayan apocalypse, but Bussa Bus says it was the fans that got it all wrong — and he was actually right.
"This is what people misinterpret: I never said the world was gonna end in a literal sense, even though that's the way I always gave it up in the music and through the concepts of my albums," Busta told MTV News when we caught up with him on Thursday night.
"When I put out 'Everything Remains Raw' in '96, five years after that was 2001 and, in 2001, the world that we knew changed because of the Twin Towers," he explained of the events of September 11.
Busta pointed to the 9/11 terrorist attacks as proof that a figurative end-of-the-world scenario did in fact happen as he'd predicted. "In America, the laws changed, a whole lot of infrastructure with the laws and our civil liberties being taken from us was actually being put in effect in a literal way," he continued. "So the world as we knew it did come to an end in 2001, when that situation transpired, so my math was correct."
Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to Congress, made the comments while discussing the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians during an appearance on the Yahoo News podcast "Skullduggery."
"There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people's passports," Tlaib said on the podcast's most recent episode, published Friday. "And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways, but they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them."
I truly don't understand what the fuck she's saying here. Is the "calming feeling" in regard to the Holocaust or in regard to the negative (and I suppose in her mind, similar) effects that the Holocaust and Zionism had on the Palestinians? And how do either of those atrocious things elicit a "calming feeling"? I can't even twist her words since she's spewing so much nonsense.Because they're connected to each other, like a hive-mind sharing half a brain, I'll post this from Rashida Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American elected to congress.

I'll giver her credit, at least she's not saying "I wouldn't even gas the Jews."Because they're connected to each other, like a hive-mind sharing half a brain, I'll post this from Rashida Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American elected to congress.

I have no words for her stupidity.
I dunno, it reads a bit like she realized partway through what she was saying, and then quickly tried to shift it so she didn't sound like she was happy the Holocaust happened.I truly don't understand what the fuck she's saying here. Is the "calming feeling" in regard to the Holocaust or in regard to the negative (and I suppose in her mind, similar) effects that the Holocaust and Zionism had on the Palestinians? And how do either of those atrocious things elicit a "calming feeling"? I can't even twist her words since she's spewing so much nonsense.
Which, for all people mock the idea that so many politicians are just lawyers, is one reason that's actually a rather good profession to spend some time in before becoming a politician. It actually teaches you about the legal meaning of wording and how to craft a legal document.It's troubling that people who are supposed to be writing laws have so little understanding of the importance of word choice.
Watch it there, Jiggly! She and Bernie are teaming up to fuck over your credit card interest rates. Because, you know, idiots that have bad credit shouldn't have to pay more than those of us that use credit wisely. Like, you know, I mean, it's not FAIR, right?And then you've got these dumb bitches who have literally not lived a single day in the real adult world who think legislating consists of posting on twitter to "roast" the other side and drafting up feel-good legislation that's not actually supposed to be voted on.
