    Lupe Fiasco remains all political. The rapper butted heads with conservative pundit Bill O'Reilly and condemned the military actions of President Obama, once again referring to the leader of the free world as "terrorist" when he appeared on The O'Reilly Factor on Monday, June 20th. Fiasco is treading on dangerous ground, methinks.

    O'Reilly aired a clip from Fiasco's track "Words I Never Said," during which he raps: "I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit/Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets." Fiasco reiterated that President Obama has supported a terroristic agenda through foreign policy, as have most presidents. "If you're gonna fight terrorism, true terrorism, weaponized fear ... to me, you fight the root causes of terrorism," he said.

    While Fiasco was pro the killing of Osama bin Laden, he was clear that he did not support the invasion of Afghanistan after the September 11th terror attacks. O'Reilly disagreed, declaring, "You are oversimplifying and bringing a message to people -- younger people, I pointed out, who admire you -- that is a message that is not true."

    Ouch. Heads be buttin'.

    Team Fiasco or Team O'Reilly? Or neither?
