Video: Rebublican "Birther" Rapper Performs at 9/12 rally

Self-professed “Republican rapper” Hi-Caliber made an appearance at the anti-Obama 9/12 march on Saturday. Demonstrating his imperfect understanding of Russian history, Hi-Caliber railed against the “communist czars” he perceived to be operating in President Obama’s administration. Not only that, the crowd cheered at a line questioning Obama’s birth certificate:

We need tanks and hummers, not hybrid cars!

We need honest politicians, not communist czars!  USA, not the USSR.

We need more Ann Coulter and less Bill Maher.


I don’t need another lecture from the Socialistic hypocrite.

Tuesday was your birthday, but where’s your birth certificate?
