    Something HORRIBLE Was Noticed About Beyonce’s Halftime Song!

    Something HORRIBLE Was Noticed About Beyonce’s Halftime Song!


    By Kosar



    There is no question that famous singer Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z are Obama-supporting activists. But people are noticing something about a hidden message Beyonce sent during tonight’s Super Bowl Half Time performance.

    With Coldplay and Bruno Mars, Beyonce introduced her new song- which is called “Formation.” That song is a tribute to the radical Black Lives Movement, as you can see in the music video (below):

    Video at link.

    The story shows Beyonce on top of a cop car in New Orelans years after Hurricane Katrina.

    The screen is covered with the words “Stop Shooting Us” and shows black children wearing hoodies. Pathetic!

    Beyonce and Jay-Z have been supportive of the violent Black Lives movement, and spent thousands to bail people out of prison during the deadly Baltimore, MD riots.

    But our police deserve respect! And the NFL should be embarrassed that Beyonce was allowed to send this pro-Black Lives Matter message out to more than 100 million viewers.

    Beyoncé unleashes Black Panthers homage at Super Bowl 50


    Star makes political statement with dancers posing with raised fists à la Tommie Smith and John Carlos at 1968 Olympics

    With references to the Black Lives Matter movement, Malcolm X and the Black Panthers, Beyoncé’s half-time show at the Super Bowl on Sunday might be the most radical political statement from the superstar in her 20-year career.

    Backing dancers wearing Black Panther-style berets and clad in black leather were photographed after the performance posing with raised fists evocative of the black power salute by Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City.

    Beyoncés dancers in black berets at #SB50 paying homage to the Black Panthers 50 years after their #formation in '66



    Snapped backstage, the dancers also held a picture with the slogan “Justice 4 Mario Woods”, who was shot dead in December by police in San Francisco, this year’s Super Bowl host city.

    Beyonce's dancers paid tribute to #MarioWoods, black man killed by San Francisco police. #SB50 #BlackLives

    Woods, who was reportedly armed with a knife, was filmed as he was shot dead after being surrounded by about a dozen police officers. A lawyer representing Woods’s family has called for the federal government to investigate the case for civil rights violations and examine whether any of the five officers involved should face criminal charges.

    The dancers’ visual homage to the Black Panthers marked 50 years since the formation of the group, which had its roots in Oakland, less than 50 miles from the stadium where the Super Bowl was played.

    Founded by Huey P Newton and Bobby Seale, the movement was a revolutionary black nationalist organisation and one of the most influential civil rights group of the late 60s, but vilification in the media and some members’ connections to illegal activities led the then FBI director, J Edgar Hoover, to call it “the greatest threat to the internal security of the country”.

    Beyoncé was widely tipped to be preparing to make a deeply political statement with her Super Bowl show after releasing a surprise single and video, Formation, on Saturday, which referenced both Hurricane Katrina and the recent mass protests across the US over police killings of unarmed young black men.

    The video shows Beyoncé sitting on top of a police car and includes scenes showing a young black boy dancing in front of lines of riot police, who put their hands up, before cutting to a wall of graffiti that reads: “Stop shooting us.”
    On Friday, Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, announced that he would donate $1.5million (£1m) raised at a charity concert run by his streaming service Tidal last year to the Black Lives Matter movement and other social justice organisations.

    Beyoncé’s performance was not the only political statement of the night, with Coldplay’s set featuring a marriage-equality inspired rainbow wave of placards held up across the stadium, which spelled out: “Believe In Love”.

    Commentators said the message was indicative of how far the gay rights movement has come. “This was a combination of local pride – I was born and used to live in San Francisco – and the simple reminder of the country’s progress on LGBTQ acceptance,” wrote Seth Millstein of Bustle.

    “Even five years ago, it wouldn’t have been conceivable for the Super Bowl to express an unabashedly pro-gay message during the half-time show.”

    This article was amended on 8 February 2016 to clarify that the lawyer representing Mario Woods’s family is asking the federal government to consider criminal charges in the case, not seeking to bring them himself.

    Obama endorses Beyonce: Role model for White House daughters

    Beyonce hosts a campaign fundraiser for President Obama, and comes away with her own endorsement from the president as a role model for his daughters.

    By Monitor Staff SEPTEMBER 20, 2012



    • AP Photo/Elise Amendola, File


    Beyonce – singer and new mom of baby girl Blue Ivy – and her husbandJay-Z hosted a $40,000-a plate fundraiser for President Barack Obama's reelection campaign Sept. 19 with her husband at his 40/40 club in New York and got a presidential endorsement of her own ... as a role model to the first daughters.

    "Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls," Mr. Obama remarked.

    Which seems on point, because Michelle Obama has said Beyonce is herrole model. When asked in May to choose someone she would like to emulate, the First Lady said, "I'd be Beyonce." And, Beyonce, too, has said Michelle is her role model.

    The mutual backscratching has its roots in some wholesome mutual interests:

    Beyonce has publicly supported the Obama campaign for years but went above and beyond this April by sending an open letter and video in support of the first lady. Citing Mrs. Obama as "the ultimate example of a truly strong African American woman," Beyonce describes the First Lady as a role model worth celebrating.

    The dynamic duo also collaborated on a video entitled "Move Your Body," as part of a campaign designed to get kids fit through exercise. Beyonce even surprised students at Don Pedro Albizu campus in New York City last year by performing alongside them to the official "Lets Move! Flash Workout" for New York City.

    Fundraising for the president clearly links her to the Obama brood, but Beyonce also has been active in fundraising for charities throughout her career.

    Co-founder of the Survivor Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping victims of Katrina, she was also an ambassador for World Children’s Day in 2005 which takes place internationally every Nov. 20. In 2004, she teamed up with Jay-Z and raised $1 million for the Shawn Carter Foundation, a nonprofit that provides scholarships for low income students pursuing higher education.

    In 2010, The Council of Fashion Designers of America named Beyonce the official face of their “Fashion For Haiti” T-shirt. All Proceeds were donated to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.

    Don't forget to add female empowerment to the philanthropic star's repertoire, Beyonce recorded the song, "Run the world (Girls)," a track capable of serenading any young girl whether she’s an Obama or not.

    Michelle Obama’s pre-game support of Beyonce’s ‘racist’ halftime – was she in on it?

    February 8, 2016 | Tom Tillison |

    Michelle Obama’s pre-game Super Bowl fluff interview revealed that she “cared deeply about the halftime show,” even coordinating her outfit for Beyonce’s approval.

    President and Mrs. Obama sat down Sunday with “CBS This Morning” anchor Gayle King, a family friend, for what has become a tradition — a pre-Super Bowl interview.

    Sunday’s performance was a far cry from the contentious exchange that occurred two years earlier with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly. In fact, it was nothing short of a love fest that threatened to ruin the day for serious sports fans.

    Joined by the first lady for the first time, it was a given that the Obamas complained — about such things like bad Wi-Fi service at the White House — before discussing first dates and post-presidency plans, among other hard-hitting topics.

    The first lady said she cared “deeply about the halftime game show,” likely because pal Beyoncé, one of this year’s halftime performers, was planning to get political in support of Black Lives Matter.

    “I got dressed for the halftime show,” Michelle said. “I hope Beyoncé likes what I’ve got on.”



    Mrs. Obama was dressed in all black, we assume in simpatico with the artist’s dancers who performed inwardrobes that resembled the Black Panthers. The only thing missing was a Black Panther beret. Furious Americans are expressing their disappointment and outrage that the Super Bowl halftime show was allowed to be hijacked for political purposes and given a racist, black power theme.

    But the overall message for viewers was that when it comes to watching the big game, the Obama family is “like everybody else.”
    In fact, Mrs. Obama jokingly tried to convince King that she cooked “all day” for Sunday’s game.

    “Don’t let her tell stories, now,” the president chimed in with a laugh.

    Not that it was necessary for the president to do so, as the image of Michelle Obama spending hours over a hot stove just doesn’t come to mind.

    If the above exchange didn’t send the contents of one’s stomach back up in search of air, perhaps this lovely little game of “I love it when…” will do the trick:

    The reaction on social media clearly shows that unlike an adoring media, most Americans are long over the allure of “hope and change” that Obama transfixed a nation with seven very long years ago.

    Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:



    @toddstarnes This interview will give you diabetes. Thanks a lot CBS.@brianstelter @WhiteHouse this has to be the worst interview of a president of all time.

    1:27 PM - 7 Feb 2016

    @brianstelter
    @WhiteHouse he should go back to being interviewed by the woman eating fruit loops out of the bathtub.......horrible interview

    1:29 PM - 7 Feb 2016

    @brianstelter @WhiteHouse I'll be just like them with I can send my wife on a $10 million dollar's worth of Vacations this year on taxpayers

    @brianstelter @WhiteHouse nah, not true, WE THE PEOPLE don't get to spend millions on numerous vacations. Plus, WE love America!

    @CBSThisMorning @POTUS @FLOTUS @CBS Gayle King must've lost power and got dressed in the dark. And no thanks! Stop trying to ruin my day!




    @CBSThisMorning @POTUS @FLOTUS @CBS And the lies roll on...
    @CBSThisMorning Nobody gives a shit what @POTUS @FLOTUS think. @CBS
    Let me know when this Obama BS interview is over. #ChangeChannels@CBSThisMorning @CBSNews @GayleKing @CBS Why ruin the Super Bowl Sunday with Oduma interview. Just plain wrong. #stupidmove@CBSThisMorning @CBSNews @GayleKing @CBS this is terrible, especially since Beyoncé is planning an anti-police halftime show.

    Beyonce is disgusting - her performance choice should have been nixed by NFL. A presidential family endorsing it is doubly disgusting.

    Seven Facts About the Black Panther Party Amid Beyoncé Super Bowl Tribute



    by JEROME HUDSON
    8 Feb 2016
    1,663 comments

    The part-socialist, part-black nationalist Black Panther Party is headline news again, thanks to Beyonce’s Super Bowl 50 halftime show performance of her song “Formation,”–“a big wet kiss to Black Lives Matter” that pays tribute to the 1960s militant group.

    In the fall of 1966, the Black Panther Party was founded by left-wing militants Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale. Newton, like Seale, had several run-ins with police. He was convicted and sentenced to 30 years in prison for the shooting death of an Oakland police officer. Publicity around his arrest and the popularity of “Free Newton” propaganda provided the public pressure that led to his release.

    Seale and seven others (now known as the Chicago Seven) were arrested at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Seale was sentenced to four years in prison for contempt of court. He now lives and works with young political activists in Oakland, California.

    Below are seven facts about the Black Panther Party:

    1. The Black Panther Party’s “Platform and Program” called for guaranteed housing, income, and jobs for black people:

    We want full employment for our people.

    We believe that the federal government is responsible and obligated to give every man employment or a guaranteed income. We believe that if the white American businessmen will not give full employment, then the means of production should be taken from the businessmen and placed in the community so that the people of the community can organize and employ all of its people and give a high standard of living.
    We want an end to the robbery by the white man of our Black Community.

    We believe that this racist government has robbed us and now we are demanding the overdue debt of forty acres and two mules. Forty acres and two mules was promised 100 years ago as restitution for slave labor and mass murder of black people. We will accept the payment as currency which will be distributed to our many communities. The Germans are now aiding the Jews in Israel for the genocide of the Jewish people. The Germans murdered six million Jews. The American racist has taken part in the slaughter of over twenty million black people; therefore, we feel that this is a modest demand that we make.
    We want decent housing, fit for shelter of human beings.

    We believe that if the white landlords will not give decent housing to our black community, then the housing and the land should be made into cooperatives so that our community, with government aid, can build and make decent housing for its people.


    2. The Black Panther Party was against capitalism and supported socialism:

    “We have two evils to fight, capitalism and racism. We must destroy both racism and capitalism,” said Black Panther Party founder Huey P. Newton.

    “We do not fight racism with racism. We fight racism with solidarity. We do not fight exploitative capitalism with Black capitalism. We fight capitalism with basic socialism. And we do not fight imperialism with more imperialism. We fight imperialism with proletarian internationalism,” wrote Black Panther Party founder Bobby Seale in his biography Seize the Time: The Story of the Black Panther Party and Huey P. Newton.

    3. The Black Panther Party wanted “all black men to be exempt from military service”:

    We believe that Black people should not be forced to fight in the military service to defend a racist government that does not protect us. We will not fight and kill other people of color in the world who, like black people, are being victimized by the white racist government of America. We will protect ourselves from the force and violence of the racist police and the racist military, by whatever means necessary.

    Rule number six of the “Rules of the Black Panther Party” states, “No party member can join any other army force, other than the Black Liberation Army.”

    4. The Black Panther Party supported the Second Amendment as a means to “end police brutality in our black community”:

    We believe we can end police brutality in our black community by organizing black self-defense groups that are dedicated to defending our black community from racist police oppression and brutality. The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States gives a right to bear arms. We therefore believe that all black people should arm themselves for self defense.

    5. The Black Panther Party called for “freedom for all black men held in federal, state, county and city prisons and jails.”

    6. In its “Ten-Point Program,” The Black Panther Party sought to overthrow the U.S. government.

    7. The Black Panther Party implored its members not to “ill-treat” those whom they “take captive.”

    Rudy Giuliani Just Destroyed Beyoncé For Her Super Bowl Halftime Stunt That OUTRAGED Many

    Liberals can't resist politicizing absolutely everything...
    Joe Saunders February 8, 2016 at 1:51pm


    The singer Beyoncé’s softcore porn performance during halftime of Sunday’s Super Bowl was ripe for complaints over the hypersexual nature of its content, but former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani saw something that he feels was an even bigger problem on the tens of millions of TV screens showing the song-and-dance routine.


    While the rest of the country saw the half-dressed chanteuse and her backup dancers slapping their own buttocks, Giuliani was seeing a slap in the face to the nation’s police officers.


    The popular performer, who has palled around with Barack Obama on more than one occasion, led a dance routine involving black-clad women in what appeared to be a tribute to the militant group The Black Panthers. The song around which the routine was built was Beyoncé’s new anti-cop release “Formation.”


    As NFL fans know, Sunday’s big game was the 50th Super Bowl. The publication Essence confirms that Beyoncé and her scowling dancers in the black berets were paying “homage to the Black Panthers on the 50th anniversary of their formation” during the intermission.


    “I think it was outrageous,” Giuliani said at the top of the interview on “Fox & Friends.” “The halftime show, I thought it was ridiculous anyway, I didn’t know what it was. A bunch of people bouncing around …”


    But there was one part of it that was crystal clear: Beyoncé and her troupe’s holding their fists in the air, which Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists interpreted as a Black Power salute, and an implicit slam against America’s police officers.


    That interpretation is one of the few things Guiliania and the Black Lives Matter gang agree on.
    “I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers, who are the people who protect her, and protect us and keep us alive,” Giuliani told the “Fox & Friends” hosts Monday.


    “This is a political position, she’s probably going to take advantage of it,” Giuliani said. “You’re talking to Middle America when you have the Super Bowl so if you have entertainment, let’s have, you know, decent, wholesome entertainment and not use it as a platform to attack the people who, you know, put their lives at risk to save” others.




    Giuliani wasn’t the only person to take Beyoncé’s performance as a BLM promotion and a put-down of police. Viewers across the political spectrum agreed, from liberals like the U.K.’s Guardian to Black Lives Matter activists themselves ….........

    It wasn’t a wardrobe malfunction. To Giuliani and millions of others, it was worse.

    Anti-Beyonce protest planned outside the NFL's New York City HQ

    Anti-Beyonce protest planned by anonymous organizers outside the NFL's New York City headquarters after her 'race-baiting' Super Bowl performance

    Bey's performance of new single Formation had a fiercely political tone

    The show featured backing dancers dressed as members of armed rights group the Black Panthers

    Many dubbed it a 'slap in the face' to the US police force

    Now, an anti-beyonce rally is being staged outside the NFL building next week

    Beyonce's performance on Sunday's Superbowl that featured backing dancers dressed as members of armed civil rights group the Black Panthers, predictably amassed fierce criticism from some within minutes.

    And the video of her new single Formation has since been dubbed a rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement - as well as a 'slap in the face' to the US police force.

    Now, a rally is being staged outside the NFL building as support for #BoycottBeyonce steps up a gear.
