I am forced to listen to a great deal of radio music in my workplaces. One common element throughout the modern music I hear, apart from its appalling themes and utter lack of quality, is the dearth of death among its degenerate composers and performers.
This lack of demise troubles me immensely. I’m subjected to endless songs about fornication, drug addiction, atheism, and alcohol abuse. Yet those who perpetrate these crimes against humanity do not suffer for their actions. Many of them have even lived into their thirties.
At least in the 1960s, the deviants who destroyed our nation’s moral fibre largely had the decency to allow themselves to be consumed in their own maelstrom. Jim Morrison, Jim Hendrix, Janice Joplin, John Lennon, Bob Marley, Tupac Shakur, Kurt Cobain– the list of sinful musicians answering for their sins in their youths goes on and on. Some died from their drugs, some from suicide or Divine Vengeance. The point is, they died, most of them in well-deserved agony, cursing their own sinful lives as God sent them to their eternal reward for their misdeeds.
Today’s musicians defy Heaven for longer. By remaining alive, they set a poor example for our nation’s youth. How can one discourage one’s children from fornicating and taking drugs, when prominent examples of those doing so live on well into their fifties? These dogs haven’t the decency to pay for their crimes in their youths, when they might at least be able to plead youthful folly as an excuse; instead, they linger on, decade after decade, contributing check after check to the Democrat Party, NARAL, and NAMBLA, sowing the seeds of further sin and embelishing those already committed.
Surely none can count it a mercy to allow such filth to continue to draw breath. The real question is, what is one to do about it? Obviously, President Bush- for all his many virtues- is not the man to cope with this crisis. President Brownback will face a serious challenge culling the chaff from the wheat in the American entertainment industry. All-star performers like Ted Nugent and Toby Keith must emerge from the crucible stronger than ever; filth like Jay-Z, the Rolling Stones, and Beyonce must face serious punishments.
I wouldn’t rule out Guantanamo, if President Brownback is feeling clement; but more likely, the retribution for the “music” spawned by this filth will have to be far more severe. In any case, President Brownback will take the appropriate measures. These degenerate hedonists who masquerade themselves as “artists” are in for a rude awakening come January 2009.
