This Rapper Complained About Nazi Germany’s Berlin Wall….Just One Little Bitty Problem With That

When I was younger, our next door neighbor had a foreign exchange student from West Germany. During the year that she was in the country going to our local high school there were several occasions where either they came over to visit or would watch my sisters and I.

One of the nights that everyone came over to watch a movie or something like that, the adults turned on the news and it was showing people standing on top of the Berlin Wall. It was right after the announcement had been made that effectively signaled the end of the purpose of the wall.

I don’t remember the person’s name because it was so long ago but I remember them crying because there were relatives that they had never seen because they were on the East German side.

The Berlin Wall might be something that they don’t teach in history books but one thing is for sure they probably don’t teach it to rappers because they don’t even know what country was governing who.

Via Breitbart:

Rapper Talib Kweli gave his fans an incredibly wrong history lesson Friday, saying that the Berlin Wall was created by Nazi Germany and was proof of how “walls didn’t work for Nazis.”

“So, you’re unaware of the fact that nazi Germany had a wall called the Berlin Wall that was torn down in 1991 in order to foster humanity and diversity? Walls didn’t work for Nazis so why build them here? Build bridges not walls Nazi lover,” Talib Kweli said in response to another social media user.

Of course, the Berlin Wall was erected not by Nazi Germany, but by socialist East Germany, which was under the occupation of the communist Soviet Union at the time.

Also, unlike President Donald Trump’s proposed wall along the United States-Mexico border, the Berlin Wall was created to stop people from leaving East Germany’s occupation to travel into free West Berlin.

    Actually, the Berlin wall worked very well. I was almost impossible to escape into West Berlin from the Communist side.

    Reading too much Common Core history? Perhaps an Ivy League history major?

    This sounds like something Miss AOC would say. Maybe they went to the same HS.
