Boomers for Censorship

Original Article

Posted By: DW626, 1/29/2022 9:40:33 AM

Neil Young (76), better known as “and Young,” was the first. A few days later, there were rumors that Barry Manilow (78) followed, but he appeared to deny them via Twitter on Friday afternoon. The same day, before the Denny’s early bird special expired, Peter Frampton (71) appears to have joined “and Young’s” tenuous movement. Let’s call it, “Boomers for Censorship.” If you’re not aware, earlier this week, “and Young” threatened to remove his music catalogue from Spotify if the corporate media behemoth did not remove the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast from its platform.

We must forgive musicians for living in LA LA land. But I can never forgive Neil Young for that whiny screechy crazy voice.

All the real musical talent, 50's and 60's rockers, have passed away, and I was never a big fan of any of these guys, so pulling their music is no great loss. I have a huge pile of LP's and that I listen to,as well as older country, when the artists weren't jumping around the stage singing the same word over and over. They won't be missed in my house.

Censorship seems to be getting more popular on all frequencies of the political spectrum. I stand with Voltaire, who supposedly said, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." For a country whose best ideas arose from political conflict some call democracy, it is disgusting anyone should support censorship...which generally means your argument fails.

He didn't threaten to leave, he demanded they either choose him or Rogan, can't have both, he said. Since Spotify just signed Rogan to $110 million dollar contract, it was an easy decision, and one that Neil Young brought about on his own. Funny to think of the counter culture musicians of the 60's and early 70's, and the politicians of the same era, all now demanding we trust the government. Really wasn't something they felt back then, however. This also makes you wonder what happens to a company who loses millions of subscribers or clicks, like Twitter seems to do on a regular basis over the past few years by de-platforming people, or same with You Tube? Do they all re-capture those lost eyeballs, and it doesn't affect their stock prices?

I have never understood the attraction to And Young, or many of the so called Counter Culture artists from the 60s. Bad singing voices, insipid lyrics, poor music and hygiene. Not trusting the government, but as they aged, they all seem to have sold out to group think and limousine socialism.

When you are losing the arguement, and have no rational, sensible response....the cowardly, childish ones with a totalitarian streak throw a tantrum and want to shut up the side that is winning the discussion with FACTS, truth and reasonable arguments. Censorship is the refuge of the totalitarian losers.

FTA: All that would need to happen now for Neil Young would be for some corporate entity to get behind him, herald his music, give him a platform, reinvent him as an icon of “courage,” The problem there for Old Man Young is that he has a history of being an anti-corporate activist, epitomized by his anti-corporate screed that masqueraded as an album, "This Notes For You." Good luck to him finding a corporation to back him.

I've also read that longtime "and Young" friend Joni Mitchell has also come out to support him and his campaign and is considering whether to risk her 3+ million plays on Spotify. Since she doesn't have any recent music to hawk it might be enough to just lend him vocal support... As a Boomer and a musician, it's really sad to see the toll that drugs and the lifestyle have wrought on once-great artists. And it illustrates that artists don't have to be intellectual heavyweights - it's just "Feelings! Whoa-o, feelings!" greyseal greyseal

The dirty little secret here is that Spotify pays its artists a pittance, so Neil and his fellow virtue signalers aren't sacrificing much revenue.

Are the world’s elite tone-deaf, willfully ignorant, or truly malicious? I must contemplate this question because, on a very human level, it points to where we’ve gone wrong, and what we must do to fix it before it’s too late. I think, honestly, it’s all three. It just depends on the person whom we’re talking about and what set of circumstances we’re contemplating. Let’s face it: There are a relative few who consider themselves “the chosen” in this world, the ones with the most money, the power-mad, the influencers.

The Democrats and the propaganda ministry have tried to portray the events of January 6 as the greatest assault on democracy… in like, forever. But it seems like that narrative is starting to unravel. The unraveling began when many people began to suspect that the whole thing was a setup and started looking into it. It wasn’t law enforcement or MSM journalists investigating -- they could be controlled. It was amateur citizen investigators using the power of the internet.

The power of government rests on ignorance of the people, and it knows this, and therefore will always resist enlightenment. Leo Tolstoy Every nation has its fair share of people with no useful abilities, yet harboring considerable ambition and an insurmountable craving for la dolce vita. The longing is there, but with no means for its realization. So, what they to do? Sooner or later the mediocre find a workable solution: they go into politics. A sufficiently high position in a government structure that doesn’t require any special abilities or talents gives an nearly assured opportunity to receive lucrative benefits, including money, respect, and influence.

A day ago, Vice-President Kamala Harris sat down for a wide-ranging one-on-one interview with NBC’s Craig Melvin. Melvin asked Harris about the Biden administration's lack of progress in the fight against COVID-19. He inquired why they haven't updated guidelines on masks since public health officials acknowledge that cloth masks are not as effective as KN95s and N95s masks. Harris was also asked about Biden’s divisive rhetoric on the Voting Rights Bill during his speech in Atlanta and why the administration hasn’t been able to convince moderate Democrats to vote for their bill.

Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for companies with 100 or more employees officially went into effect on Monday and companies are scrambling to figure out how to force employees to comply. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court is sitting on its hands, refusing to rule, and compelling employers to enforce Biden’s totalitarian mandate. On December 15, 2021 a three-judge panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled that the lower Louisiana federal court only had the authority to block the mandate in the 14 states that had actually filed suit

There is a real possibility that the European Union (EU) will endure major fuel shortages this winter. Record-high electricity prices are currently the norm with no end in sight. Russian president Vladimir Putin astutely understands that the EU heavily relies on Russian natural gas, which the Nord Stream 1 and now 2 (NS2) natural gas pipeline will provide. This $11 billion line to the German coast spanning 764 miles under the Baltic Sea will double the capacity of Russian natural gas and be used as a geopolitical leverage point against Ukraine, Poland, NATO, the EU, and most of all Germany, the largest economy in the EU.

It started in Chicago, where an incredible 91% of union teachers voted to go on strike and refused to do what they get paid to do, which is teach. Then the union walkouts spread to Maryland, New Jersey and California. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a liberal Democrat, has attacked the Chicago teachers unions for "holding kids hostage." She is right. Why doesn't she call a state of emergency and disband the union to save the children from the union terrorists? Or tear up the contract because the unions have violated it? If she did, she would be a hero.

Most Americans today have a romanticized (and extraordinarily narrow) historical understanding of the conflict that we call the Civil War. In their imaginations, it goes something like this: With passions inflamed by a moral renaissance in the North regarding the institution of slavery in the South, the two sides decided to go to war over the issue. In the end, the evil South was righteously razed by the armies of the North, and thus, slavery was ended, and the former slaves made American citizens, as Abraham Lincoln intended.

Most people look at the choice of Kamala Harris for Vice President and scratch their head. “Why would anyone pick a person so wildly devoid of political talent or even the basics of likability?” they wonder. The conventional wisdom is that she checked the right number of boxes to fulfill left-wing interest group demands, which is partially true, of course. Overlooked, however, is how there is one more, rather good and important reason Joe Biden, or really any politician, would pick someone like Harris: because by comparison, you’ll always look better. Harris is such a singularly grating personality that she polls lower than lemon juice on an open wound.

Last summer I was notified of secret overnight flights coming into Westchester County Airport that were transporting thousands of illegal immigrants apprehended at the southern border. Having overseen the airport during my tenure as county executive, I knew that flights arriving after midnight are not allowed so I started asking questions publicly. Who are on these planes? Have they been vetted and COVID tested? How many flights so far and how many more are scheduled? Where are these illegal immigrants being placed and who is paying for all this? Have background checks been done, especially on the adults? What happened next was entirely predictable.

The phones may contain information that’s important to the Sussmann case, as well as to a separate criminal leak investigation of Baker that Durham personally conducted between 2017 and 2019.

One of the main tenants for a stable and law-abiding society is a judicial system that enforces laws and ensures equal justice for all.The reverse is true in progressive cities, resulting in an increase in crime. Various government organizations, even all the way up to the Department of Justice, have gone astray. Social justice warriors are now in positions in the DOJ to implement “racial justice”, which determines how to prosecute cases based on the race and/or social justice cause, not commensurate with the crimes committed.A perfect example can be seen in a murder committed by a BLM arsonist.

Getting old is neither easy nor fun. It’s part of life, and it’s a challenge we all must face. One key aspect of that challenge is being able to stay current. We must strive to not only understand the changes affecting our families, our individual health, and our own spheres of influence, but we must also work to grasp the realities of an ever-changing society. Neil Young is a 76-year-old singer/songwriter and, based on his sparse musical output over the past few decades, his recent focus has not been on producing compelling, appealing music.
