now this is exactly what i mean. hearing shit like this from people i respect(ed). this time, it’s the beastie boys, who just released an ‘anti-war’ song called the beastie boys gone mad…er, i’m sorry, it’s called in a world gone mad…. yet another example of celebrities that are either blind to or ignorant of the facts. here’s a lyrical sample:
With the cocaine and Courvoisier
huh? any reference to courvoisier is cool cuz it’s the ladies man’s love potion of choice, but once again, HUH? dubya and saddam should just get together at camp david and party? hire them on as consultants, mr president. maybe that’s all we really needed….a little premium liquor and some rich coke to get an aggressive, dangerous, psychotic dictator to come to his senses.
they’re also on the absurd blood-for-oil logic bandwagon evidently…
And stop the corporate contributions that they’re built upon
Well I’ll be sleeping on your speeches ’til I start to snore
‘Cause I won’t carry guns for an oil war
they spout on even more about the oil myth…
For oil families pockets to get filled?
How many oil families get killed?
Not a damn one so what’s the deal?
of course, some of their amusing trademark cultural references are included…
We need these fools to remain calm
George Bush you’re looking like Zoolander
Trying to play tough for the camera
and the piece de resistance…
But that’s no reason to get hysterica
They’re layin’ on the syrup thick
We ain’t waffles we ain’t havin’ it
the little rap boys have the freedom to live (large by the way), write, and perform songs like this in america. whatchathink saddam would do to ya if you were an iraqi and wrote about him bein on crack? it’s all well and good to hate war and love peace and shit, but sometimes it’s necessary. look back in history. aren’t some, if not all, of the beastie boys jewish? what if we just had peace love-ins back during wwII? don’t think that would’ve stopped the nazis from killing every jew on earth. make a rhyme outta that.
