Rapper Azealia Banks after Palin vows lawsuit over tweets advocating rape: ‘F**k whitey’

banksEarlier this week, we reported that rapper Azealia Banks suggested very strongly that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin be gang-raped by a group of black men.

Palin responded, telling People magazine she intends to sue the foul-mouthed, America-hating rapper:

Palin told PEOPLE exclusively in a statement that she will take legal action against Banks “on behalf of all reasonable women of every age, race and political leaning.”

“I’ve had enough of the unanswered threats and attacks against my family and me,” Palin said of Banks’ NSFW social media suggestion that the former governor should be sexually assaulted. “So, for the first time I’m going to enjoy the only retribution some protected ‘celebrities’ seem to understand – I’m suing Azealia Banks and can’t wait to share my winnings with others who have gone defenseless against lies and dangerous attacks far too long.”

Banks responded with an apology of sorts, claiming that is was just a joke, and by the way, America is a racist country that really sucks:

In my honest defense, i was completely kidding. I happen to have a really crass, New-York-City sense of humor, and regularly make silly jokes in attempts make light of situations which make me uncomfortable. As the fabric of the American Nation is EMBEDDED with racism, I merely made a raCIALly driven joke to counter what i believed to be real, raCIST rhetoric.

She also claimed that she never called for Palin to be “raped,” just sexually molested by a whole bunch of black men.

But she still wasn’t finished.  According to Breitbart, she continued her racist hatefest, insinuating that Palin is engaging in sex acts with Donald Trump:



She also wrote (Emphasis and typos from the original):

“i’m 100% positive that the police killings, cultural appropriation, Trump and Palin etc. represent the contempt that whitey shares for this intangible , uncontrollable new black mind that’s been steeping for a while now. The mind born of very intelligent and real conversations/confrontations around American Racism. And the detachment of the Black mind from the mirage of a subpar existence and self-perceptions that crackers created for us long ago. They feel exposed and out of control for once. And our big black ideas and expression are threatening to further expose them, so they’ll try to trivialize and minimize our blackness by stereotyping us.”

And concluded her post with this bit of brilliance: “F*ck whitey.”

According to People:

A source in the Palin camp says the former governor is “in discussions with attorneys” about the exact nature of the suit and where and when it will be filed.

“Why is it if anyone looks at some liberal women the wrong way they can yell “RAPE” and ruin peoples lives (the Duke Lacrosse team, anyone?), but when serious violence is threatened against someone not of their political ilk, no one bats an eye,” Palin says.

Palin’s statement continues, “First, to get politics out of the way here, it’s reported that I ‘really shouldn’t mind’ Azealia degrading, dangerous calls for a woman to be raped because she’s supposedly ‘some kind of Donald Trump surrogate’ or supporter, as am I. I’ll speak for Mr. Trump on only one issue, and that’s that he denounces Azealia’s endorsement and her pro-rape, anti-woman stands. And if I’m wrong on that denunciation, then Mr. Trump isn’t who I thought he was.

Personally, I hope Palin sues this idiot for everything she’s worth and then some.  Like Palin and many others, I am frankly tired of people like Banks who hate America but love the money they get from hard-working Americans.
