Watch Adrian Fenty Dance to Go-Go

You read about Mayor Adrian Fenty's campaign go-go event; now, thanks to Take Me Out To The Go-Go, watch video of Fenty getting down on Sunday afternoon with the Junkyard Band. (What politician wouldn't want to be introduced like this: "He the only mayor I know that don't ride with no Secret Service or nothing — the man is gully, man"?)

    Paging NOODLEZ and Rick on this Video with King Fenty trying to get down with da people in da hood. LOL LOL

    King Fenty is so out of place around this group of people and he didn't fit it. His body movement gives me the impression, he was very uncomfortable. The man is so desperate, he would pimp his mama out to win this election. Not just King Fenty, but most politicians are all "PIMPS". Oh what a web we weave!

  • http://rickmangus@aol.com Rick Mangus

    He looks like and animal in the final moments of life, both politically and biologically!

  • WARD4NDC

    LOL LOL@Rick Mangus! Now I need to hear from NOODLEZ. LOL

  • Cant

    Anybody notice who WASNT there? Chuck Brown... why not you wonder? He could not be bought. Pay attention to the rest of the band members up there. Even they looked disgusted with Fenty but realize the show must go on if they were to get paid. Lol

  • downtown rez

    Word up, cant. The only folks who can buy chuck are the lotto pimps who sell hope to the hopeless. For a dollar.

  • Jeff on 8th

    Desperate times call for desperate measures....

    Not looking good for the current mayor...

    Fenty repudiates rumors of domestic trouble

    http://voices.washingtonpost.com/dc/2010/06/fenty_repudiates_rumors_of_dom.html

    I never did believe these rumors about King Fenty. This was an urban legend, but rumors and gossip goes along with being a politician. Is it really worth it?

  • Georgia Avenue Day

    Oh my goodness. I love every minute of this. Fenty dancing with sweaty shiny black men wearing wife-beater tshirts.

    This is scaring the shit out of white people/voters that live in Ward 2, 3 and 6.

    These guys more than likely look like the same black men in wife-beater shirts that I hear about on Wards 2, 3 & 6 listservs alleged to have pissed in alleys, robbed and beat the shit out of people for IPODS, stole bikes out of people's yards and cuss them out when coming home from work for no particular reason.

    You know we all look alike.

    Really Fenty? A week ago one of your campaign workers was just arrested for selling crack on your home turf in Ward 4 and now you're gonna go hang out with a go-go band that gives shoutouts in their music to neighborhoods and crews where there is a significant drug trade and violence.

    Smart.

    Fenty Canvasser Accused of Selling Crack
    http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local-beat/Fenty-Canvasser-Accused-of-Selling-Crack-96756719.html

    And I have't seen your black ass or wife's yellow ass at any community events of this caliber the four years that you have been in office. Now all of sudden you wanna come beat your feet with the homies.

    FYI most of the homies aren't registered voters, live in PG county, can't vote because of felonies...or frankly just don't give a fuck about seeing you in office again.

    Bring outChuck Brown, the godfather of go-go and see what the turn out will be. You'll have native doctors, lawyers, professors, retired school teachers and the gentrifiers ready to rock...and vote.

  • Truth Hurts

    more of the same from one city's hater crew. Really, really sad how folks have lost any sense of decency. While Nikita's reporting on Fenty's disavowal of horseshit wife beating trash, perhaps she should report that similar bullshit rumors circulated in '06 about Gray. The difference then, and now, is that decent people who don't like Gray left the unfounded rumors alone.

  • Georgia Avenue Day

    Truth Hurts just as folks have grown tired with Fenty's antics...I think we've all grown quite tired of your one city-I hate Vince Gray reruns. Get over it already.

    Also, I don't think much of biased WAPO journalist Nikitta Stewart's report of Fenty "disavowal" of allegedly beating the shit out of Michelle Fenty (and having then Ward 4 MPD Captain Cathy Laneir coverup.)

    Do also remember that Fenty faced disbarment for stealing money from a client's estate and he was defended by current DC Attorney General Peter Nickles. So the possibility of a criminal element in Fenty isn't all that far fetched.

    Article: Fenty Faces Investigation D.C. Court; Council Member's Client Lost Some of Savings
    http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1P2-370010.html

    There's a laundry list of mismanagement and corruption that Fenty and his administration "disavowed" of knowing about and ended up proven itself to be true. Once a liar, always a liar.

    Other than recyling the whole one city spill and referring back to the 1990's both you and Fenty need to come up with something else and something stronger.

  • downtown rez

    GAD-
    Nice to see you trotting out the whole "fenty beats his high yellow wife thing again.". Please, share the pics.
    Until then, Fenty is the far more of a leader than Gray ever was,, or ever will be. In case you weren't around in the '90's, FYI Gray presided over some of the worst times at one of the worst agencies DC has ever seen. So bad, in fact, the feds had to come in and dismantle it. Let's hope that the past isn't prologue.
    In any event, from where I sit, it's pretty clear that today DC is now the best it's been in 40+ years. Hell, even Georgia Avenue- DC's longest commercial corridor- is showing signs of life beyond the vacant and boarded storefronts, fast food carry outs, hair salons, and liquor stores.
    Good night, GAD, It's 11:50-something PM. Enjoy the remainder of your day. Courtesy of of someone who cares about this city, and seeing actual progress.

  • sedcdude

    FUCK fenty and those that support him!

  • noodlez

    WOW!!!

    FAGGIE FENTY HAS A BUBBLE OVER HIS HEAD SAYING "THAT BITCH MOTEN SET ME UP!"

    THEY WAY HE MOVES IS INDICATIVE OF HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BLACK FOLK OF THIS CITY. AWKWARD AND OFF-BEAT.

    THE ONE THING THAT D.C. CAN ACTUALLY CLAIM AS ITS OWN THIS BAMA CAN NOT IDENTIFY WITH ON ANY LEVEL. WHAT MAKES IT A TRAVESTY IS THAT HE GREW UP WHEN THIS GENRE WAS AT ITS PEAK. THIS MOFO GREW UP IN DC, WENT TO CATHOLIC SCHOOL WHEN CATHOLIC CHURCHES WAS THROWING GO-GO'S ALL THE TIME AND MOVES LIKE HE NEVER WENT TO A GO-GO IN HIS LIFE.

    IT'S OBVIOUS HE TOOK AFTER HIS MOTHER. THAT CAUCAZIOD REARED IT'S UGLY HEAD AT THE WRONG TIME. DAMN NO RHYTHM. WHY COULDNT HIS FATHER SIDE COME OUT?

    COMMENT #5 WAS ON POINT.

    DREZ STOP HATIN AND PERPETRATIN'! YOU CANT FEEL THE PULSE OF THE CITY RIDING THRU THE HOOD ON THE BUS. STAY POSTED I MIGHT START OFFERING WALKING TOURS THRU THE HOOD (DAY AND NIGHT) TO GET YOU AND THE REST OF YALL WHITE FOLKS ACCLIMATED. YOU GOTTA SMELL AND FEEL THAT SHIT BEFORE YOU MAKE INACCURATE AND HALF TRUTH STATEMENTS ABOUT THE STATE OF THIS CITY.

    BUT SERIOUSLY YALL LOOK AT THAT SHIT? THIS BAMA GOT TISSUE STUCK ON HIS SHOES WITH NO FLOW OR FLUIDITY TO HIS STYLE. HE LOOKS LIKE HE CANT EVEN WORK THE WALLS! GET HIM THE FUCK OUTTA HERE! DUDE ITS 90+ DEGREES OUTSIDE! AT LEAST SPORT A LINEN OUTFIT OR SOME SHIT!

  • Raul

    I watched this video over and over. Fenty was trying hard to fit in with these characters. He deserves an A for making a fool of himself. Poor guy, he was trying to be down with the black thugs from the ghetto. I know if white voters watch this, they will run in the other direction with fear. These are the hoodlums don't a lot of the crimes in and around the area. Who listens to GO GO music? This is not music and I see why this is a D.C. thing because around the big United States of America, the majority of people see this as jungle music.

  • Georgia Avenue Day

    FYI downtown rez aka Fenty's number 1 groupie. Much of the "leadership" and "accomplishments"....and urban renewals or developments that you give credit to Adrian Fenty for were actually intiated by Anthony Williams.

    Both Fenty and Rhee have a history of taking credit for successes that aren't theirs.

    And Fyi I've been around much longer than you have and voted for more DC mayors than you. This city is my home, my parents' home, and my grandparents' home. I not an urban pionner or gentrifier that just got here.

    "Actual progress" is giving a damn about the have's and have nots....and Fenty and his firing of much needed CFSA social workers, turning a blind-eye to the DC General shelter all while constructing $400,000 dog parks and million dollar bike racks truly shows what side he is on.

    So there's no surprise why you're a Fenty fan...you're an individual that can afford to be a downtown rez and leisurely spend your days posting on the City paper blog as your leisure.

  • Truth Hurts

    GAD: At least we agree that Nikita is a biased reporter. She's been in love with Gray since arriving in DC from New Jersey almost 5 years ago. Her "reporting" belongs on the op-ed page or in a column.

    Here's something new (and old) about Gray. He's still raking in campaign dough from his disbarred felon frat bro Bruce Bereano. Haven't heard one Gray supporter disavow or defend it yet. Google Bruce Bereano and Vince Gray if you're interested in knowing more. And by the way, Fenty (unlike Bereano) was not disbarred. Had he stolen money,as you falsely claim, he would've been disbarred. But hey, don't let facts get in your way. Cropp made this same tired overblown attack on Fenty a centerpiece of her '06 campaign. Didn't work then, either. Gray runs a subliminally race-baiting campaign and is counting on folks like you to turn people against one another based on race. His "one city" mantra simply is a fake.

  • sedcdude

    Hey RAUL, take your knuckle draggin' ass on back to where you come from, CAN YOU SAY HATER!!!

    You damn skippy the U.S. doesn't embrac it, but yet in still anybody who has partied knows full well it was an experience second to none and its OURS!

    This is the ONLY musical genre never copied(it comes from the soul and you inherit the passion), misunderstood, never exploited nor controlled "outside" of or sold out by the "players!

    This is why WE have you limped wrists on here talking shit about BLACK MEN who are not politically correct, are not trying to impress you, HETEROSEXUAL, don't care about YOU or your I-phone or the fact that because YOU don't understand GO-GO your OPINION matters, GTFOH and take Fenty's sucker ass with you!

  • sedcdude

    How bout Fenty had Lomax as "soft" protection, LMBAO!!!!

    JY was crankin' like shit, that was too many dark skin blacks for the likes of Drez, BonJovi, Bivampire, adrian bent-him, RAUL and a coupl'a others here who are pure and plain ol' HATERS!

    Why didn't y'all come on down in support of Fenty who has allowed and afforded you fruitbats COMFORTABILITY and LIFESTYLE???

    Bunch of shit talkin' cowards who never had a fistfight, came off the porch or out the yard but now have so much to say!

    The polls shall talk come election time, FENTY'S ass is grass just as his signs and buttons are green!

  • Jesse Helms

    sedcdude, you are a low life "coon" lacking class, education, and morals. I wonder how many felonies these "coons" playing this so called barn yard music. Fenty looks like a light skin mulatto that's trying to fit in with the spooks.

    sedcdude, please tell your "coon" mammy to keep you off the comupter and let your suck on her tits.

  • Ward 8 Rez

    Jesse Helms you are one of the funniest queens to post! I enjoy reading your colorful, hatred-filled spew..I know you yourself are a self-hating snow-queen, who loves nothing more than putting an old shriveled caucasian wiener in your mouth, hence the name Jesse Helms.

  • Jesse Helms

    Sorry to burst your bubble Ward 8 ghetto Rez. I am not a fruitcake nor am I a Negro. I am very Caucasian (WASP). You must be a ni$$er Queen because I see you know the homosexual lingo. You are pathetic like the rest of the poor uneducated "coons" living in Soupheast. Why don't you screw sedcdude in his behind, until you hit up against his prostate gland and make him cum.

  • Jesse Helms

    Ward 8 Rez are you another angry Negro homosexual that was rejected by a white homosexual in Washington, D.C.? Don't hate on me because even white homosexuals look down on you "coons". I am not a "coon" lover like Fenty's mammy.

  • downtown rez

    LOL GAD
    It's cool. I'm glad Georgia Ave is finally turning the corner. Development on Georgia Ave means new residents, more taxable income for those services you want, more jobs, more shopping. Of course, most of the best things on Georgia Ave are happening up in Ward 4, and naturally with the strong support of Fenty and Bowser. A real win-win. Enjoy.
    I thought this year's parade was great, by the way. The family very much enjoyed it.

  • WARD4NDC

    Downtown Rez, you are wrong. Both King Fenty and his puppet Muriel Bowser has lost support from many loyal Ward 4 voters. Many black Ward 4 D.C. voters/residents hate King Adrian and he knows this. The King will not win this election. Fenty has divided this city by race, class, and sexual orientation. I knew this guy and supported him before you and many others. King Adrian has turned in a monster and an vindictive asshole.

  • MPD White Official

    Mayor Adrian M. Fenty has lost the support of most Metropolitan Police Department officers/officials. Talking to many police officers at the Fourth Distict in Ward 4, the majority of the officers dislike Fenty and prefer not to be detailed to his home on 17th Street, NW in Crestwood. The mayor has turned out not to be a people's person. He's lacking social skills.

  • S.E.

    It's fitting that Truth Hurts, Downtoen Rez and others keep harping on 90's and the Pratt-Kelly administration.....'cause the Fenty administration is a mirror image.......right down to being a One-Term Mayor.

  • downtown rez

    Actually, SE, I'm happy the '90s pratt-kelly/barry era is in the past, and I very much live in the moment. What would make me sad is if a second rate unreconstructed flunkie from that era somehow managed to worm his way into the mayor's office.
    But, hey, I'm an optimist and know that, one way or another, DC will only get better and better, and I keep looking forward to it.
    The past is gone for everyone, but forgotten to no one.

  • Truth Hurts

    S.E.: You want everyone to forget about one city's mismanagement under Pratt-Kelly, I understand that. But before you take a swipe at me for harping on it (See your comment # 26), you should read my comments on this post. Not one mentioned the 90's.

    #1 poked fun at Fenty's go-go dancing as shown on the video clip. #10 criticized (as did Kojo) Gray supporters/Fenty haters for steering comments toward made up charges that Fenty beats his wife. #16 responded to GAD's request that I criticize Gray about something new/recent. So I pointed out he's still raking in cash from his good friend, convicted felon frat bro and disbarred lobbyist Bruce Bereano (see Gray's recent campaign finance report). I also pointed out that GAD's assertion Fenty stole money was simply false (as GAD would've known had GAD read the articles he/she linked to).

    And now, I'm responding to your claim that I keep harping on the 90's. Except none of my comments in this thread discussed the 90's. I'm still waiting for you or any Gray supporter to defend the Gray/Bereano dough. Or to even admit it's happening again, IN THIS CAMPAIGN.

  • DCDem

    Kickbacks and cronyism and mismanagement of public funds is a throwback to the 90's Barry era. A tradition that Fenty has wholeheartedly embraced and expanded.

    Just saying.
