Ah Glenn Beck. The Fox News and Premiere Radio Networks psycho-gogue must be getting desperate, because now he's attacking music as the source of liberal evil. Just today Beck claimed that Springsteen's Born in the U.S.A. is an anti-American rant.
The Beatles' Revolution is the template for the progressive social plan, brainwashing us with a pop melody. And Woody Guthrie's This Land is Your Land is, horror of horrors, about a progressive utopia where property rights will disappear. (Beck, he's just for a corporate utopia that only recognizes property rights), because of the lines "and on the sign there it said no trespassing/but on the other side, it didn't say nothing, that side was made for you and me" and another verse where Guthrie asks, seeing hungry folks lined up outside a relief office, if "this land is made for you and me?" Kindof a legitimate question for 1940, on the heels of the Great Depression, especially for someone like Guthrie, who came from the Dustbowl west, where so many people lost their homes.
If only Guthrie, writing 70-80 years ago, or the Beatles, back in the 60's, or Springsteen's hit from the 80's had done their nefarious job of instituting the progressive, anti-American revolution, maybe we wouldn't have had the Reagan Revolution and the financial crisis. Maybe Green Day can do a better job. Somebody play Beck American Idiot quickly, so he can warn the world before another 20 years go by.
And somebody tell him that a country where criticism or speaking up about the harshness of real life isn't allowed isn't a democracy, it's fascism.
