I’m so happy that Dee Snider…I mean Marilyn Manson…I mean Lady Gaga (they all look so similar, and I feel bad saying that because Snider is a conservative) decided not to boycott Arizona. Liberalism is always easier to critique when its advocates don’t use the politicians’ playbook, which aims for success-through-obfuscation. Behold, The Gaga talks:
“Tonight, I want you to free yourself. I want you to let go of all of your insecurities…I want you to reject any person or any thing or any law that have ever made you feel like you don’t belong.
I got a phone call from a couple really big rock and rollers, big pop stars, big rappers, and they said, “We’d like you to boycott Arizona…because of SB1070,” and I said, “You really think that us dumb f**king pop stars are going to collapse the economy of Arizona. I’ll tell you what we have to do about SB1070; we have to be active. We have to actively protest. And the nature of the monster ball is to actively protest prejudice and injustice and the bullshit that is put on our society…because you’re a superstar no matter who you are or where you come from—and you were born that way!
…and do not be afraid, because if it wasn’t for you immigrants this country wouldn’t have sh*t…Hey kids! All right, when you leave tonight you don’t leave loving me more, you leave loving yourself more.”
Laws exist for a reason. I highly doubt Lady Gaga has thought about where society would end up if we unraveled the logic that screams: The Rule of Law is meaningless! For instance, if I “freed myself” from any law that made me feel like I “didn’t belong,” I’d routinely be facing assault charges, because I often get the urge to assault celebrities that insult my intelligence with nonsensical, narcissistic pap like: “You’re a superstar no matter who your are…when you leave tonight…you leave loving yourself more.”
Liberalism isn’t about actually knowing anything; it’s about having really high self esteem. Seth Macfarlane retires to his drug smugglerless mansion and I suppose Lady Gaga retires to her drug smugglerless Manhattan penthouse. Although, I probably should refrain from asking whether they’ve been to parties where drug dealers have been present because then I’ll really get off track.
The point is, even guys like Anderson Cooper realize that Mexican drug cartels are very rich, very scary guys (i.e., they operate a multi-billion dollar business and they.will.kill.you). So I ask you, Lady Gaga: Are the individual drug lords and their low-level thugs terrorizing border town “superstars”? If there were cartel members in your audience, would you encourage them to “leave loving yourself more”?
What’s the MS13 Gang violence like in the neighborhoods that Lady Gaga hangs out in? And what are the chances that Ms. Gaga would have made a much different video for Telephone had she actually spent some time with some hard core criminals nabbed along our Southern border? My Magic 8 Ball says: Bet on It.
Lady Gaga thinks all of her fans are “stars,” and she may be right. However, most of them are really just stars…In The Dope Show.
