Glenn Beck vs. Woody Guthrie
Between his attacks on Diego Rivera and his latest assault on these guys, I think we can be sure that the coming nazicommislamocialism dictatorship will at least have good art.
But c’mon Glenn! You’re forgetting about Bob Dylan, The Clash, and The Rolling Stones. Those guys are at least as freedom-hating! And don’t even get started about all those secret Nazis in R.E.M., Radiohead, and Pearl Jam.
Anyways, this whole post is just an excuse to post this picture and my favorite Woody Guthrie quote, which seems fairly relevant to Glenn Beck:
“The world is filled with people who are no longer needed. And who try to make slaves of all of us. And they have their music and we have ours. Theirs, the wasted songs of a superstitious nightmare. And without their music and ideological miscarriages to compare our songs of freedom to, we’d not have any opposite to compare music with — and like the drifting wind, hitting against no obstacle, we’d never know its speed, its power.”
