Rhetoric Referees Really Censorship Cop Bullies. Speak Up Instead!

The Rep. Giffords tragedy was an eye-opener for a lot of people over the past week.  However, oddly enough, the primary epiphany had really nothing to do with the shooter because crazy people do crazy things. We know that.

Instead, the average citizen found out just how blindly, bizarrely and desperately partisan the Mainstream Media and their liberal acolytes are.  Sure, Dan Rather’s forged memos were a wake-up call in 2004, but then again Dan’s fabrications were only meant to bring Bush down.  The Giffords shooting was different.  Not only were Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews and a bevy of liberal twitter feeds and blogs linking Sarah Palin to the grisly affair—they linked the entire Tea Party movement to the horrors (with no evidence whatsoever)!

Anyone whose read this blog knows that I see My Chemical Romance’s new album as worthy of conservatives’ embrace, so I’ll give some advice on “toning down the rhetoric” in the terms of lyrics to the song Sing It!

Sing it for the boys, sing it for the girls
Every time that you lose it sing it for the world
Sing it from the heart
Sing it till you’re nuts
Sing it out for the ones that’ll hate your guts
Sing it for the deaf
Sing it for the blind
Sing about everyone that you left behind
Sing it for the world, sing it for the world

Sing it out
Boy they’re gonna sell what tomorrow means
Sing it out
Girl they’re gonna kill what tomorrow brings
You’ve got to, make a choice if the music drowns you out
Raise your voice every single time they try and shut your mouth

Since I’m sure critics will point to the “sing it till your nuts” line to hit below the belt, I’ll preempt your Olbermannesque urge to do so: I’m operating under the premise that it’s better to sing the truth and go nuts (non-violently, of course) than to shut up and say nothing when bullied by lies.

There was a concerted effort made to delegitimize the Tea Party in one fell swoop last weekend.  While the haze and the confusion and the sadness of a national tragedy sat like a heavy fog over the nation, sick liberal pundits sought to implant an idea into your head—Inception style—that the “rhetoric” of the Tea Party was behind it all.  And like amateur Leonardo DiCaprios botching the job, the American people soon knew that something was not right with the reality presented.  Communist Manifesto reading, pot smoking, 9/11 Truther-loners who make jokes about abortions and suicide bombers before burning the American flag are not ready-made Sarah Palin Tea Party members…

Let's look at a small sample of my WordPress stats, shall we? I wonder who the guy who googled "Death to Conservatives" to get to my blog was. Sorry buddy, conservatism is alive and well around here. So is Pee Wee Herman, Rick Moranis, Scott Pilgrim, and Oliva Munn eating hotdogs! And it all happens to a My Chemical Romance soundtrack.

Liberalism presumes you’re an idiot, and the cable news coverage in the wake of the Giffords shooting is a textbook example of that.  It’s insulting enough that Nanny State bureaucrats already think you’re too dumb to decide what food you eat, what health care plan is best for  you and your family, or how and when you should defend them from thugs and lowlifes. Now the media goons think you’re so morally bankrupt that you’d hold millions of your fellow Americans culpable for the murder of a nine year old girl, a federal judge, and other innocent civilians with zero—ZERO—evidence indicating that was the case.

The call for “toned down rhetoric” is really a call for self-censorship.  14 trillion dollar deficits are losing.  Unconstitutional healthcare mandates are losing.  Conservatism is winning, and the only way to slow it down is if you allow yourself to be bullied into silence.  Don’t. If anything, speak louder—or, like I said earlier, “sing it out for the ones who hate your guts.”  Your kids and grandkids will thank you.

Be a Fabulous Killjoy. Be a rugged individual, as compared to part of a collective bunch of vampires who all dress and think alike (usually about sucking the lifeblood and fortunes from society's producers and success stories).

Kesha: We are Who We are (Exactly: Vapid).

Congratulations, young ladies: Feminists once fought for you to have equal rights. Ke$ha fights for your right to be dumb, liberal, and easy.

Our old friend Kesha just might be brimming with STD’s, but I’m sure she’d just tell me “We R Who We R.” And that’s true: You’re a sad, vapid excuse for a woman. The political elite (of both parties) call Sarah Palin an idiot, and sleazy liberal party girls do the same—sometimes on their way to the voting booth that coincides with with their walk of shame.  But who’s really the dumb one?  Sarah Palin, who tries to inspire young women out there to go out and make something of themselves, or Kesha:

DJ turn it up
It’s about damn time to live it up
I’m so sick of being so serious
It’s making my brain delirious!
I’m just talkin’ truth
I’m telling you ’bout the s**t we do

Let me make your brain a little more “delirious”, Kesha.  And let me tell “you ’bout the “s**t” some other people do.  You R who you R, and the Iranians R who they R. And the Middle Eastern despotic regimes R who they R:

TEHRAN, Iran – A senior Muslim cleric has denounced the participation of Iranian women in the Asian Games, calling it a humiliation and saying women’s sports are a product of the West’s “dirty” culture that should be shunned.

In one corner we have Islamic mullah nuts, who stone women to death, support terrorism, deny the Holocaust, and seek nuclear weapons with which to hold the world hostage with any number of bizarre demands once they get it.  In the other corner we have a musician who does, indeed, promote filth.  In fact, she revels in it.  An entire industry is fueled by the ability of like-minded artists to churn out catchy songs that make it cool to embrace your basest desires.

The great thing about the United States is that its citizens, for generations, have coupled freedom with liberty.  And liberty is something that constrains us because it is intimately tied with personal responsibility (unlike Kesha, who apparently is intimately tied to a number of random dudes).  In a country where people are free to do disgusting and depraved things, the majority of the people attempt to live a dignified life the majority of the time.  In other parts of the world people do what their theocratic thug masters tell them is the “right” thing to do because they don’t want to end up stoned to death over bogus charges they can’t defend themselves against—because they have the wrong chromosomes.

But back to Ke$ha:

We’re dancing like we’re dumb
Our bodies go numb
We’ll be forever young
You know we’re superstars
We are who we are!

You’re dancing like you’re dumb because you are dumb. And the easiest way to go numb while you’re young is to live in South Korea when Kim Jon Il decides to lob a few artillery rounds on your head. Or to be a Westerner in a country filled with Taliban head-choppers screaming “Allah Akbar!” as your melon is lopped off (the same guys Richard Gere once said simply needed to be loved).

I’m sure that KeSha fans would say that I’m just a grumpy old man, to which I respond: Not true. But I am a Fabulous Killjoy. I’m louder than God’s Revolver and Twice as Shiny! Today’s young conservatives know how to rock while simultaneously being informed.  And we don’t like easy dumb chicks who live in liberal fantasy worlds.

Today's young conservatives are Fabulous Killjoys; they kick ass and know how the world really works.

Once upon a time feminists fought to give women equal rights across the board. They envisioned a time when women would be able to choose different career tracks (i.e., motherhood or the corporate ladder…or both!) based on what was right for them.  And they succeeded.

Today? KeSha fights for a woman’s right to take it off. Sad.

Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance: Closet Conservative?

My Chemical Romance broke liberalism's #1 Rule: Do not proudly sport the American flag, and if you do make sure you apologize for all past sins, real and imagined by the international community. Does anyone really believe Billie Joe Armstrong would proudly wrap himself in the American flag? Didn't think so.

Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance is a closet conservative.  There is no way someone without a conservative streak in them (even a latent one), could have made the video Na Na Na. While I’ve read that he supports the Democratic Party, it should be noted that voting patterns and principles are different things. Example:  Gerard ruffles liberal feathers from the get go:

“Look alive, sunshine. 109 in the sky, but the pigs won’t quit. You’re here with me, Dr. Death Defy. I’ll be your surgeon, your proctor, you’re helicopter.  Bumping out the slaughtamatic sounds to keep you live…  Anti-matter for the master plan. Louder than God’s revolver and twice as shiny!...The future is bulletproof.  The aftermath is secondary.  It’s time to do it now and do it loud!  Killjoys, make some noise!”

Doesn’t Gerard know that mentioning God is a no-no (or was that ‘na na’?), and that coupling Him with a revolver might cause the kids to link a Creator—from which all our rights are derived—with self defense? Even worse, the message comes from guerilla radio (i.e., talk radio) that circumvents the “official” message disseminated by established authority figures. But, as Dr. Death Defy says, that’s secondary.

Take a look at the themes that run through Na Na Na.

  • American flags proudly displayed.
  • Guns as legitimate tools of self defense.
  • American muscle cars and the freedom that comes from the open road (It would be hard for Killjoys to save the world if they were waiting all day for public transportation).
  • Vampiric authority figures tied to the federal government or a company closely associated with it.
  • Resistance movements, individualism, and self-reliance.
  • Orwellian double-speak.  Better Living Industries (i.e., BL.ind)
  • Dystopian future (batteries provided by Better Living Industries have played a role).
  • State controlled media.

Ask yourself this question: Would Billie Joe “Sunshine Patriot” Armstrong have made this video?  The poster boy for hypocritical liberal rockers who lecture you on public policy while admitting their brain has been clogged and confused by years of illegal drug use?  I think not.  And I’m not just saying that because Gerard’s individual artistic talents dwarf Billie’s.  We can point to other videos Billie would never have made ( e.g., The Ghost of You).

Regardless of his politics, it’s clear that Gerard has a love and reverence for his country that modern day liberalism rejects.  My gut tells me that perhaps Gerard is a JFK Democrat, but someone needs to tell him that the JFK Democrat is dead to today’s liberals.  JFK accurately and unapologetically called out enemies of freedom and democracy.  JFK understood basic economics.  Today’s liberals do not.

Gerard reminds us all of the sacrifice that soldiers made during World War II. What's he thinking? Olive Stone, the guy who said we need to put Hitler "in context" would not approve. And Billie Joe Armstrong seems to only approve of US troops if they're handing out food to flood victims or under a United Nations peacekeeping mandate. Gerard needs to be careful, because Hollywood liberals won't stand for this sort of thing.

But back to the video.  Some lyrics:

Everybody wants to change the world
Everybody wants to change the world
But no one,
No one wants to die
Wanna try, wanna try, wanna try
Wanna try, wanna try, now
I’ll be your detonator

Selfless service and sacrifice are things that are generally foreign to the modern day liberal. They want freedom and opportunity, but US fighting men and women are not allowed to die guaranteeing it for future generations. They want never ending entitlement programs (e.g., “free” health care) by having someone else pay for it—like rich rock stars. They want global peace, but think it can be accomplished through “dialogue” with the world’s worst dictators, despots, and thug regimes.

It's true: The Federal Government is filled with Vampires. They're the types who suck the lifeblood from successful individuals and entrepreneurs like Gerard! Good metaphor, My Chemical Romance.

Gerard would be in good company with conservatives, even if he doesn’t know it yet:

Make no apology
It’s Death or Victory
On my authority
Crash and burn
Young and loaded

Drop like a bulletshell
Dress like a sleeper cell
I’d rather go to hell
Then be in purgatory

Being an individual, standing up for what’s right and wrong, and making tough choices by accepting positions of authority very often results in death or victory. Good point, Gerard. But once again you’ve drawn a line in the sand and acknowledged that good and evil exist, that there are objective truths to be had, and that dying for what’s right is a just and honorable cause. Don’t run for office or start getting political at your concerts because your liberal base will desert you.

Regardless, thanks for the video.

I'm glad that My Chemical Romance, at least on an artistic level, understands that guns can be used for self defense. There's nothing worse than a successful actor or musician who believes I (as a law abiding citizen) shouldn't have a gun to defend myself in my own home or a dangerous neighborhood, but that their paid bodyguards can as they go on shopping sprees in Los Angles, New York, or Milan.
