First Degree The D.E. explains his attendance at the Trump Sacramento rally and more

In the face of surrounding rumors and pressure about his alleged support of Donald Trump, First Degree The D.E. clears the air about his confirmed presence at the Trump Sacramento rally, his upcoming video, and the ‘Summer Of Fahrenheit’.

While traveling California, making his case to the American people, presidential hopeful Donald Trump held a rally in Sacramento on June 1st, 2016. The rally was held at The Sacramento Metro Airport with an intense police presence. This rally was preceded by a turbulent Chicago cancelation, and was followed by a bloody San
Jose Trump protest brawl. The Sacramento hangar in which this event was held, was secure, with the occational protests.

Supporters and protesters occasionally clashed in the two hour line

The Trump Sacramento rally line was two hours long, consisted of mostly white males, and bared a few protestors and conflicts. The media was deep, there was 10,000+ rally goers in attendance, and both tension and fun were in the air. Although a few flirted with the imagery, there were no confederate symbols seen. Republicans had come from the surrounding regions to hear the official nominee fire up the crowd, trash the media, and explain that America was going to be great again under his presidential leadership.

On time, Donald Trump dramatically landed in his name-incrusted plane within eyeshot of the rally, to a frenzied crowd. The plane pulled up to the hangar, and ‘The Donald’ made his entrance. He literally began where he had left off the rally before, explaining how the media mistreated him during the veteran donation scandal, and trashing local Sacramento media as a result. The next 40 minutes was just what the supporters relished for, Trump’s random ideas on building a wall on the border, Hillary Clinton, China, our military, the economy; the full array of ‘Trump’. Once over, the rally goers appeared content with the performance, and left the hangar energized for a Trump presidency.

Trump asks the crowd, “Who’s gunna pay for the wall?!”

Days after the rally, rumors spread in the Sacramento streets that one of the few African-Americans that attended the Trump was none other that local rapper First Degree The D.E.

A YouTube video of the full rally, posted by Right Side Broadcasting, clearly shows an African American man in the front, near Trump, during a post-rally meet and greet. His arms appear on the right of screen at the 50:30 mark of the video. At one point, it appears verbal and/or nonverbal communication is made between the presidential hopeful and the Black man. Once word spread that the Black man was wearing First Degree The D.E.’s signature red, black, and green wristbands, the video went semi viral and First Degree The D.E. says he felt the heat from fans and friends alike for “supporting a demagogue racist”. The Fahrenheit Record spoke to the Sacramento vet to set the record straight.

“Yea I was there, but I don’t support him for president” First Degree clarifies. “He’s funny to me, he’s a simple, privileged man that speaks off the cuff, is addicted to power, an isolationist, a bully, a sexist, and knows how to stir fear. Its great!”  First Degree continues, pointing out that Trump doesn’t have the temperament to be president, and feels Trump is too vindictive for the Oval Office. “Can you imagine Donald Trump with the nuclear codes? We’d be on the verge of war because of a Twitter feud! Trump would be great as a new and improved Rush Limbaugh, on the air everyday ranting, but not a Commander-In-Chief. He doesn’t have enough empathy.” First Degree The D.E. also notes that living to serve the people, “isn’t something you can turn on like a light switch, its a passion that burns one’s whole life.” The Sacramento rap legend also affirms that he and the presidential hopeful did communicate briefly.

When asked if he thought Donald Trump was a racist, First Degree The D.E. goes on to explain that he agrees with Seattle area activist and artist Thunderchief, with his view that Trump is an ethnocentric. According to Merrian-Webster, you are an ethnocentric if you have ‘the idea that your own group or culture is better or more important than others’. “As a Marcus Garvey Black Nationalism learner, its hard for me to hate on that,” First Degree admits.

While addressing Trump followers, First Degree The D.E. has observed that many of the them are White people that feel the benefits of white supremacy slowly seeping away. “A white person doesn’t have to be a racist to appreciate American white supremacy. To some whites, the thought of an equally diverse nation is exciting and stimulating. To others, the thought of true racial equality is threatening. To the latter whites, America was ‘theirs’, they are losing it, and it’s time to to ‘take it back’. Code words like ‘silent majority’ and ‘great again’, the quoting of negative minority statistics, are calls to white supremacy,” First Degree discloses. “The strong minded whites have an obligation to lift their small minded, white supremacy-clinging brothers out of the bounds of their fear”

The Fahrenheit Record Video

In time, First Degree The D.E. leaked the true reason he was at the Trump Sacramento rally, it was to film a video. “For the last three months, I’ve been takin’ on the persona of a reporter. My next video, ‘The Fahrenheit Record’ is dedicated to the hottest, upcoming urban news site in the region by the same name. It’s a funny parady on the news and what goin’ on in the world.” The song is featured on First Degree’s latest album, ‘Black Bane, Misunderstood Hero, Part 1’. ‘The Fahrenheit Record’ song questions the motives of mainstream media and does something about it by creating its own news publication.

The Fahrenheit Record song was first leaked by Sacramento News & Review. It is produced by Sacramento legend Phonk Beta and the upcoming video is being directed by Fahrenheit genius, Sic Ill.

In addition to the Trump Sacramento rally, The D.E.’s three months as a reporter included exclusive stories and footage from many news makers. The list includes Bernie Sanders, The Sacramento Black Lives Matter Movement, Steph Curry, Justin Timberlake, Aaron Rodgers, Carson Palmer, Patrick Peterson, Jerome Bettis, Jerry Rice, Marshall Faulk, Blake Bortles, Andre Iguodala, Wes Welker, Tim Brown, Marcus Allen, The Fahrenheit Crew, the list goes on. When asked if all of these celebrities were in the upcoming ‘The Fahrenheit Record’ video, First Degree The D.E. confirmed by saying, “Like Mac Dre told me, they all in my moooovie!”

The ‘Summer Of Fahrenheit’ is a term that has been floating around the internet as of late. For the record, we asked First Degree The D.E. what is was all about.

First Degree explains he’s voting for Hillary Clinton in November. He explains that he voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary knowing Hillary would win it in this TFR article about the Bernie Sacramento rally. He conceds that his vote was more of a “point vote” supporting Bernie and his ideas, and that Senator Sanders’ intentions are “pure”. First Degree informs us that he admires Hillary Clinton and her service record, as well.

“My dad’s family is from Arkansas. My uncle, Eddie D. Colen, had a personal relationship with the Clintons, and that’s good enough for me. She has the ‘service bug’. I’ve moved forward on my thoughts.” First Degree reveals.



*Note The Fahrenheit Record attended the Hillary Clinton Sacramento rally, but it was closed early to the public.

Who Was There And Why

By The Fahrenheit Record’s Jimmy Blog

Sacramento, Ca, May 9th, 2016 –  Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders came to Sacramento and was greeted by an unprecedented, diverse crowd of 20,000+.  The Fahrenheit Record was at Bonnie Field to find out who was at the rally and why.

In a unique presidential season, there has been one voice that has resonated across party lines. That is the voice of Bernie Sanders. Politicians on both sides of the aisle have taken note of Senator Sanders’ message of income inequality, social justice, the plight of the poor, and corruption in the American campaign system. Both presidential front runners Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have praised Senator Sanders and have utilized Sanders’ perspectives in their rhetoric. Bernie Sanders’ purpose had lead to a massive grassroots following. On Monday May 9th, Sanders brought “the Bern” to Sacramento, and the crowd was one of Sacramento’s largest, most diverse, ever to attend a Sacramento event.

Some showed up in the morning to head the line of the 5:00pm event

“The crowd’s diversity reminded my of an E-40 show on steroids!” Sacramento activist First Degree The D.E. observed. First Degree The D.E. is a local musician, teacher, recent Master’s degree graduate, and has brokered a truce between Sacramento Bloods and Crips gangs. He has recently pledged his support for Bernie Sanders in a Fahrenheit Record article about the Chicago Trump rally protest. He goes on to include that people from all walks of life attended the rally. “It (the diversity and crowd size) reflects Bernie’s passion for the people.”

While sifting through the quarter mile long line, one could not only find a wide range of people waiting up to three hours to get into the event, but also see them interacting with each other. Groups ranging from students, to retired professionals, and all in between, gathered to hear Bernie Sanders’ call for a political revolution. Although the Sacramento Bee states that the crowd was made up of “mostly white millennials” The Fahrenheit Record took time observing the whole event from start to finish and saw a different picture.

Blacks, Whites, Asians, Latinos, Native Americans, Middle Easterners, straights, gays, women, men, young, middle aged, old, all exchanging ideas with strangers that became friends. “I spent a couple minutes eavesdropping on a hard core vato talking politics and ideas with a group of hippies and some goth girls. Where else you gunna find that than a Bernie rally?!” First Degree The D.E. ponders.

Crowds continued to converge onto Bonnie Field well after 9:00pm for the 5:00pm Bernie In Sacramento event

With only four days public notice of this event, the reason these people attended this “political revolution” was just as important as the message itself. The Fahrenheit Record spoke to about 100 attendees, asking them one simple question, “Why are you here?”

While many attended to support Bernie the candidate, just as many were there to support his ideas. Many had appreciated Mr. Sanders’ unveiling of our political system’s secrets and corporate influence. They credit his empathy towards all and his collective nature for their support. Those surveyed stated they were at the Bernie in Sacramento rally because it just, “felt right” and they “wouldn’t miss it for the world” as a couple of attendees put it. Many appreciated his concern for future generations and selflessness as well.

A significant amount of people said they somewhat liked Hillary Clinton, and some said they would have a hard time voting for Hillary, but would. A vast majority of the Bernie Sanders rally mass thought that if Hillary Clinton won the Democratic nomination, she would be wise to put Senator Sanders on the ticket as vice president.

The most common answer given on why event goers supported Sanders was that they trusted his judgment. Answers praising his moral compass, clear purpose, past opposition to American political mistakes, and past support of civil rights, were sighted.

While being interviewed by The World Socialist Web Site, First Degree The D.E. was asked why he attended the Sanders event. He agreed with others, explaining, “The one thing everyone can agree about Bernie Sanders is that his intentions are pure.” He went on to explain that presidents get a lot of information and it is our job, as the voting public, to put a person in office that will, nine times out of ten, make the best choice for the country.

Comradery was high at this Cal Expo affair. Friends were made, connections were connected, and bonds were bonded. Amogst the crowd, people from all walks of life were getting involved in the political process, being a part of change, and being heard. Musicians played and people spoke, ramping up the massive, patient crowd for the Senator.

Although poll after poll shows Bernie Sanders beating Donald Trump by a bigger margin than his opponent Hillary Clinton, Sanders is trailing Clinton in the Democratic primary. Mr. Sanders would need 85% of the remaining delegates to catch her. The candidate’s underdog status makes the Bernie in Sacramento crowd that much more fascinating.

Bernie Sanders takes the stage with progressive ideas, collective thinking, and calls for unity

Once most of the crowd made their way inside the venue, Bernie Sanders took to the stage. He hit on his progressive message of unity, responsibility, and idealism. Sanders’ take on American empathy touched the people. “When your family hurts, mine is there to help. When my family hurts, you’re there to help,” Bernie Sanders declares to a roaring crowd. Bernie Sanders’ points about college tuition debt, gender equality, and Donald Trump not being the next president resonated with the audience, too.

As well as hitting his common points, Bernie Sanders personalized his message to Sacramentans and Californians. Being at a Bernie Sanders rally, as opposed to watching clips of them on CNN, was a much more comprehensive, enriching experience. Not only did the people that attended get to hear a full version of Bernie Sanders’ vision for the future from the man himself, they got to be among people like themselves, people ready for a political revolution.

When Bernie’s speech was over, The Fahrenheit Record followed First Degree The D.E. to a gated off area on the right side of the stage. After given Secret Service clearance, First Degree The D.E. was seen in a designated area with approximately 75 other rally attendees and press. While in this area, Bernie Sanders and First Degree The D.E. was observed shanking hands and exchanged words.

When later asked what he and the presidential candidate talked about during their brief encounter, First Degree replied, “That’s a conversation between two activists.” He did include that some of it was caught on tape and will be featured in his upcoming ‘Say Serra’ music video, from his most recent album, ‘Black Bane, The MIsunderstood Hero’. “Like Mac Dre would say, ‘Bernie, you in my mooovie.'” The D.E. included.

Bernie in Sacramento was a 20.000+ diverse congregation of political dreamers. It was inspirational and good for Sacramento.
