Yeah Right is a new pop-culture blog that seeks to scrub the socialism out of entertainment politics. From the manifesto:
Ever hear the old legend about bluesman Robert Johnson? He allegedly met the devil at the crossroads of Highways 49 and 61, just south of Memphis, and sold his soul to the Devil in exchange for incredible musical talent.
You may think this is a silly old fable, but I have come to believe that it is true. And it wasn’t only Robert Johnson. It seems to me that there is something fundamentally wrong with virtually all our great and talented entertainers and artists. And it seems that the meddling of Satan himself is as good an explanation as any.
How else can it be that the people who make the coolest music, movies, TV shows, etc., almost always embrace the dumbest politics?! Why else would Stephen Spielberg shill for Castro? Why is it that so many concerts get ruined by between-song patter about the evils of our (overwhelming free, prosperous and peaceful) capitalist society? It must be that they promised Satan they’d peddle his socialism and PC claptrap.
A recent post shares the fascinating fact that AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” has become increasingly popular at funerals.
