U.S. Rep. Yvette Clarke Honors Homophobic Artist

At the recent “Reggae Rhythm and Blues Festival”, Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) presented reggae singer Beenie Man with an award and welcomed him to the U.S., calling him an "outstanding performer" and saying he "made all Jamaicans proud." Beenie Man, like fellow murder musician Buju Banton, is well-known for his intensely homophobic views and song lyrics. From the "Dancehall Dossier":

"Han Up Deh":
Han chi chi gal wid a long piece of rope
[Hang lesbians with a long piece of rope]

I'm dreaming of a new Jamaica, come to execute all the gays

"Batty Man Fi Dead" [Queers Must Be Killed]:
All batty men fi dead!
[All faggots must be killed!]
From you f--- batty den a coppa and lead
[If you f--- ass, then you get copper and lead [bullets]]
Nuh man nuh fi have a another man in a him bed.
[No man must have another man in his bed.]

"Roll Deep":
Roll deep motherf-----, kill p-----sucker
[P---- -sucker: a lesbian.]
Tek a Bazooka and kill batty-f---er
[Take a bazooka and kill bum-f---ers [gay men]]

Beenie Man remains unapologetic for his violent, anti-LGBT song lyrics. You can watch the video of the award presentation here:
