Dems Shocked by Hip Hop Walkout

Thursday, 12 February 2004 12:00 AM

When celebs, including Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins, Al Franken, Harvey Weinstein, Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Kyra Sedgewick and super-slush funder George Soros, were attending a strategy session at the Society of Ethical Culture, a couple of hip-hop entrepreneurs, Russell Simmons and Damon Dash, sauntered in.

Apparently, Simmons and Dash threw some cold water on the unsuspecting libs.

“The [expletive] y'all doing is corny!” Simmons declared. “You have to at least include people. We are not included!”

As Dash stood at his side, Simmons lectured the left-leaning lot for several minutes, slamming the event's sponsor, Victory Campaign 2004, for paying no heed to the Hip Hop Summit's requests for voter registration funding.

Simmons noted, “I'm spending my own money. We've sent you proposals, we've called, but we've not gotten a positive response.”

The two abruptly stormed out.

Simmons exposed a skeleton in the Dem closet when he told the New York Daily News, “A room of 700 people and almost everyone was white! The Republicans would look more inclusive.”

Uh oh. Americans may discover that the real deal is that the Republicans are more inclusive.
