Having solved all other matters plaguing the United States of America, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) took a moment to celebrate the passage of a resolution marking the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop music.

You can’t help but stare at him while he’s speaking and think of actor Steve Buscemi dressed youthfully and holding a skateboard in the famous “How Do You Do, Fellow Kids?” meme.

Schumer joined Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) in passing a resolution that celebrates the anniversary of the day DJ Kool Herc discovered he could make scratching noises with records on a turntable.

“I’m happy to talk about the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop, a great artistic creation in America and we have a resolution celebrating that 50th anniversary,” the 72-year-old New York congressman said.

Schumer Celebrates Anniversary Of Hip Hop

The Schumer-Cassidy resolution is a silly, thinly-veiled attempt at playing to younger voters. In addition, it’s overreaching.

The resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop, which passed, designates August 11th, 2023 as “Hip Hop Celebration Day,” designates the entire month of August as “Hip Hop Recognition Month,” and designates November of 2023 as “Hip Hop History Month.”

Those are a whole lot of days you’re going to be called a racist if you don’t like Hip Hop music.

“Hip Hop is great,” Schumer beamed. “It’s a uniquely American art form that quickly blossomed into a global movement and we are proud, proud, proud, proud today that this resolution, honoring the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop, has passed.”

For those insisting that Schumer must truly honor the art of Hip Hop by doing his own rap flow, we say, be careful what you wish for.

The Democrat took center stage in 2021 when he was asked by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. if he “got some bars.”

Schumer responded with this effort: “I got the bars, I got the plaque, I got the music, we got it all!”

Barack Obama Slams Hip Hop Community

Earlier this year, Senator Kyrsten Sinema ripped her then-Democrat colleagues at a meeting of Republican lobbyists, saying she stopped attending the Democrats’ “dumb luncheons” because of how “ridiculous” they are.

“Old dudes are eating Jell-O, everyone is talking about how great they are,” Sinema lamented. “I don’t really need to be there for that. That’s an hour and a half twice a week that I can get back.”

Now we have old jello-eating dudes pretending that Hip Hop music is their jam. You can’t make it up.

Former President Barack Obama has been very critical of the Hip Hop community and their portrayal of men in the past.

“We live in a culture where our worth is measured by how much money we have and how famous we are,” Obama once explained.

“If you are really confident about your financial situation, you’re probably not going to be wearing an 8-pound chain around your neck,” he added. “If you’re very confident about your sexuality, you don’t have to have eight women around you twerking.”

Obama is right.

The hip-hop community has long glorified excesses in their music videos, whether it be money or women. They tend to place a high value on the former, while perpetually devaluing the latter.

There certainly are better role models out there than what you’re seeing in the hip-hop community.

That said, Obama has also palled around with hip-hop stars like Jay-Z and Beyonce, attending concerts and dancing to songs with such lyrics as: “I got that hot b**** in my home, You know how many hot b****es I own?”

The hypocrisy of the left never ceases to amaze.
