Rush Limbaugh

Ice-T Responds To Rush Limbaugh’s Rant – “I’m Also A Veteran”

(AllHipHop News) Ice-T escalated his war of words with Rush Limbaugh via Twitter, after the right-wing talking head called the rapper out on his popular talk show “The Rush Limbaugh Show.”

Rush Limbaugh blasted Ice-T on his show Monday (July 24), after the rapper defended gun rights on during an interview about the Aurora, Colorado shootings that left 12 people dead on July 20.

“I’ll give up my gun when everyone else does,” Ice-T  told UK Channel 4 News after the shootings. “If there were guns here would you want to be the only person with out one? The right to bear arms because that’s the last defense against tyranny, not to hunt. It’s to protect yourself from the police. If somebody wants to kill people, they don’t need a gun to do it. You can strap explosives on your body, they do that all the time.”

The comments didn’t sit well with Rush Limbaugh, who took aim at Ice-T on his daily show.

“There’s Ice-T saying the only reason we got guns in America is ‘to protect yourself from the police,'” Rush Limbaugh laughed. “Well, we’re told, ‘Hey, its cultural. We gotta understand it from the cultural standpoint. That’s where Mr. T’s [Ice-T] is coming from.” He knew the word ‘tyranny’ and he knows that tyranny comes from government representatives. Double impressive. Tyranny doesn’t come from media figures, or actors.”

Ice-T replied to Rush Limbaugh’s comments yesterday evening, and continued to discuss the issue today (July 25).

“Before you challenge me do your research,” Ice-T tweeted. “I’ve lectured at Stanford, Princeton & Harvard to name a few… I just might be smarter than YOU.”

Ice took aim at today’s rapper’s as well, claiming the new breed of emcees are less politicized than the previous generation of artists.

“I love how people are soooo SHOCKED to hear something thought-provoking said by a rapper.. Hip Hop has changed to POP .. Nobody says shit. My comment on guns got a lot of press.. They call me ‘Gangster’ don’t forget ‘US Army Vet.’ A little gun history.”

Ice-T labeled Rush Limbaugh a “racist piece of s**t” and told his 272,673 followers that if they supported Rush Limbaugh or Bill O’Reilly, they should stop following him.

“No matter what.. There will ALWAYS be two sides to every issue.. Have the courage to chose one,” Ice-T advised.
