Soulja Boy " F* the US troops.. "

I'm a soldier in the US army currently deployed in Afghanistan.

True feelings come out in his song Let's Be Real. This illiterate rapper who can't even speak proper english does not even deserve to utter the word troops.

F— the FBI and the Army troops
Fighting for what?
B—-, be your own man
I’ll be flying through the clouds

... With green like I’m Peter Pan

Words of an ignorant rapper named Soulja Boy.


We are fighting for the right that allows you to live in this country freely while you conduct yourself as an unappreciated, ignorant, and belligerent person.

"Everyone should of known you were a joke after Crank That. "

Help support our cause and join this Anti- 'Soulja Boy' group that my friend started.

Though I don't support the wars for multiple reasons, I do believe that you guys aren't resposible for this, and have not really done anything wrong. The thing is, though, he can say what ever he damn well pleases to. Just don't even waste your time on this, it absolutely will not do anything because of a little thing called free speech.

In the words of the great philosopher Voltaire, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

Support the troops, not the war.


Also I never liked Soulja boi. Never will.


Also his record sells will probably go down because of that. Good we don't need another dumbass rapper. I mean that as in he is a dumbass , as well as a rapper. I like rap music and there are some very good rap artists out there.

Voltaire said you shouldn't restrict free speech. Not that you should allow idiots to make statements unchecked. I fully support the troops and I fully support a Facebook page telling the rapper he's a fool. I think you guys are mixing up free speech with expressing opinions. What's wrong with starting a facebook page or a website saying Soulja Boy is out of line for saying that? Do you think Kanye should just run up and steal the mic every VMA and we shouldn't criticize his actions? Anyone is allowed to say anything. But no one should keep their mouth shut in the name of the free speech of others.

Thank you.

Just because he has the freedom of speech to express himself (stupidly), doesn't make it right...

Publicity man, that's all it is. Be it good or bad it still supports him.
I had no clue who he even was until your post. So in a way your helping him even by complaining about his actions .
Just ignore him.
Stop giving him free publicity.

The project that I'm working on is so secret... Even I don't know what I'm doing!

I believe in freedom of speech, but I also believe in keeping your own thoughts in check. Are you entitled to be upset to some degree by this? Sure. But if you flip it on it's head, why should anyone else care? Just my

F**k "Soulja Boy" .......I hate .... people and hate .... rappers even more. That waste of space should be dropped off of his label and go join Al'Queda where he belongs (read: receiving end of a US Solder's sight picture) ....what a f'ing tool.

Freedom of speech comes in many forms..even when it's something that most feel shouldn't be said. I may not agree but there are people who feel that way and they should be able to voice their opinions. It's his music and he's more than welcomed to do as he pleases.

Now having said that, a snippet from a song doesn't really tell me anything. I'm sure most people who are so against him probably know nothing about him other than he's a rapper, and that alone is reason to jump on the hate bandwagon. I'd be interested in knowing what he meant by that and if there's more to the song than what's at face value. Listening to rock and metal, if anything, has taught me never to accept someone else's take on a song on a kneejerk moment..if that were the case I'd think people like Ozzy Osbourne was purposely making music to get teens to kill themselves. I know nothing about the rapper in question other than he makes music I wouldn't normally listen to, however I'd like to hear his explanation of the song before deciding to "hate" him.

I like the idea of soldiers fighting for American values like freedom of speech... but not including freedom of speech. Humorous irony at its best.

I also found it humorous that Soulja Boy is touting his superiority about being his own man, while talking about his superiority as evidenced by his admitting being a stoner. I suppose he thinks sitting on his couch playing "Call of Duty" while greened out makes him man enough to call out men who are doing what he's pretending to do. *laugh*

If you don't care enough to research your own question, why should anyone else care more?

I don't think he's calling anyone out. Going back and listening to the song, with the first couple of lines before the ".... FBI" thing, even though I could be wrong since I didn't write it, to me it seems more as if he's describing his deal/gangster tactics, and with the rest of the song describing various gang activity. I think the ".... the fbi and army troops" thing is more a swagger thing of "my methods are so tight that government controlled tactics run by the FBI and military don't compare"..not just "I hate FBI and the army"..which doesn't seem to fit the rest of the song anyways so it'd be odd for him to just throw that in. I'm not sure how many people listened to the whole song but there's no ironclad proof that he has anything against the armed forces..one line isolated doesn't prove anything. As stated before I wonder if anyone can pull up and interview or something with this kid talking about the song.

Sad thing is even this thread spreads this douchebags fame - for better or worse it doesn't even matter. As they say, even bad publicity is good publicity. I think Hollowway's post hit the nail on the head. No one is saying people don't have the right to free speech, but people do have a right to respond - also under free speech too no?

Sure, he's got a right to express himself even if he's being a total douche that simply doesn't realize that the troops do what they are told to do or face jail. I'm not going to go into it further than except to say why lend a single shred of credence to anything that dumbass moron says?? Who cares really? Would I care any more if Kanye said it? .... no! Truth is the people that are influenced by what he says are too stupid to think for themselves anyway, and why would I care about those people either?? Ignoring him is probably the most damaging thing for him to be honest

Okay, I have to say this. How exactly are you fighting for our rights? There is no threat that those rights will be removed, so I don't know where you get that from. You may say terrorists but it really would be impossible for them to do that. They have no means in which to remove our governments legitimacy, and it's not like they could destroy it. Al Qaeda's tactics are a farce, "Let's kill soldiers and innocent people! That'll sure take down their government!" and half the time they're reducing their own numbers in the process, or killing people that aren't their enemies.

You're fighting for the United States in the loosest sense of the word. It's either giving assistance to another nations people in gaining independence or helping protect another countries government, or am I missing something?

Stop deluding yourself, nothing would change right now if the military wasn't doing anything, because their isn't any serious threat. There should be a military should the need for protection arise, but don't pretend to be doing something you're not, it makes you look like an asshole.

Sorry for going off topic, but it's things like that I have a problem with. Anyway, like I said before, he has the right to say it, and you can't deny him that right, no matter how much of a dumbass he is.

I was gonna neg you but figured it would be better to state my words to you publicly. I agree with nearly everything you said for the mostpart. But calling someone an asshole (I know you didn't directly call him that but it was definitely implied by your wording) is just plain stupid and not very well thought of a reply.

Again, I agree with most of what you are saying. But the other day I thought about what it would be like if the US didn't initiate this "war on terror". Our economy would surely be way stronger than it is now without all that spending, regimes such as Saddam's would still have control over their people - especially the bad one's etc. But, the US did take down a .... load of terrorist training camps, terror cells, etc. It took down the Taliban, though that's still proving hard keeping them down. All in all the US said we are NOT going to stand for this ..... Killing 5000 people is not a small joke done by a few punk criminals. We responded in a way I think for a while was good. I am not happy with the whole Iraq thing and there I think we made things worse in the long run.

Either way, I find it sad that you'd rip into the guy when he's the one following orders daily, not seeing his family from across the other side of the world, etc. Maybe he's frustrated at how his sacrifices are not appreciated. Either way I wouldn't blame him or call him names for the governments actions. Not cool.
