Video: Gangsta Government

Hat tip to The Last Tradition for pointing this out to me.  From the previous conservative raps (see here and here) I have seen lately, this one is just so-so.  I think the lyrics are far better than the video.
The Last Tradition: Rightside News reports that a new 5-minute music video entitled'Gangsta Government Rap' is beginning to sweep the Internet, appearing to be well on its way to becoming viral. In the first 48-hours since it was posted on YouTube, the video has received over 20,000 views. It has been prominently featured on the websites of The Fox Nation, The Washington Examiner and The American Spectator. Hundreds of Facebook posts and Twitter tweets have been logged encouraging people to watch the video.
The video's title was inspired by a 2009 column by Michael Barone in which he referred to the federal government as 'Gangster Government.' The video catalogs the federal government's efforts to impose an unpopular radical agenda on the American people.

The video was written and produced by Minnesota Majority, a non-profit government watchdog group

The group is concerned about the apparent corruption and abuse of power in today's federal government.

The rap is performed by Gregory Van Leer (a.k.a. The Infidel). He has recorded a number of rap songs with a conservative message, including "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder." He is working on his first album and is currently seeking a distributor.

"We wanted to find a creative way to convey our message and reach a new audience," said Jeff Davis, president of Minnesota Majority. "We think this video will help us accomplish that mission."

Oh boy, have you seen the "Coffee Party" rap? At first I thought The Infidel's was alright, just so-so. Now I find it kinda genious :)

"Perhaps even the MSM was embarrassed by the Coffee Party's current obscurity to the extent that its lasting legacy might well be the performance at their convention of the lamest rap song in history."
