Progressives kowtowed to the Pope after he commented on climate change and homosexuality. But one liberal activist in the entertainment industry thought he left an important cause unplowed: cow poop.

 Russell Simmons, the so-called “godfather of hip-hop” and CEO of Rush Communications, urged the Pope to speak out against animal agriculture, in part, because cow manure produced greenhouse gas emissions. 



Appearing as a guest on Friday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, while endorsing Hillary Clinton for President because Bernie Sanders has been "insensitive to the plight of black people," music mogul Russell Simmons made wildly alarmist predictions suggesting humanity would die "in the next 50 years" because the "farming lobby" is "poisoning the planet quickly."

He also blamed earthquakes on global warming during his rant. Referring to Sanders, he complained: "And I asked him about it, and he brushed it off, even though he knows that your earthquake and certainly all of these storms are a result of factory farming. We now have all of the proof in the world that climate change is manmade, and we have to do something to derail it."



Wrapping up an interview with left-wing music mogul Russell Simmons on Monday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Charlie Rose wondered: “Are you ready for President Trump?” Simmons sarcastically replied: “No. I think I'm ready for him to win the Republican primary. That’d be good.”



This might be the funniest thing I've read all week.

It turns out “comedy” does have limits, as Russell Simmons discovered when he allowed the outrageous “Harriet Tubman Sex Tape” to be posted to his YouTube channel.

Simmons, founder of hip-hop label Def Jam, published a “Harriet Tubman Sex Tape” parody to his “All Def Digital” YouTube channel Aug. 14. The disturbing video showed an actress playing Tubman, the historic former slave turned Underground Railroad pioneer, engaging in sex with her white slave master in front of a hidden camera.



As NewsBusters has been reporting, CNN's Don Lemon has been taking a lot of heat from black media members as a result of his opinions concerning race relations in America.

On Saturday, in a very lengthy segment on CNN Newsroom, Lemon once again addressed his detractors doing so in a fashion that folks on both sides of this debate should be extremely proud of (video follows with commentary and full transcript at end of post):



Famous black liberals continued their attacks on CNN's Don Lemon Tuesday.

"Whether George Zimmerman is found innocent or guilty by the jury, I am firm believer that all of us live by karmic law, and he will ultimately be punished for the death of Trayvon, no matter what."

So wrote hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons Tuesday:

Millionaire hip-hop producer Russell Simmons shared his sentiments moments ago on Twitter writing, "DAMN I love that n*gga":



The Washington Post’s “On Faith” blog network bills itself as “a conversation on religion and politics.” But the conversation of “On Faith” more accurately resembles a diatribe justifying liberal politics with religious imagery. 

During this past week, Becky Garrison claimed that Christian actor Kirk Cameron was not a Christian because he opposes homosexual marriage, and Lisa Miller declared that “In churches across the land, women are still treated as second class citizens.”



Hip-hop millionaire Russell Simmons and MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan aren't only outspoken supporters of the Occupy movement.
