This is long, so go make a coffee while it loads (am looking at you, poor people).
Also read the whole thing, including the quotes, because this took forever. I sifted through a lot of nonsense and infected my brain with an endless loop of “Ale-Ale-jaandro” by Lady Gaga, just for you.
Cultural Marxism is a term referring to a group of Marxists who have sought to apply critical theory to matters of family composition, gender, race, and cultural identity within Western society.
Dadaism is an artistic movement in modern art that started around World War I. Its purpose was to ridicule (poke fun at) the supposed meaninglessness of the modern world. Its peak was 1916 to 1922, and it influenced surrealism, pop art, and punk rock. It favored going against normal social actions.
Neo-Dada is exemplified by its use of modern materials, popular imagery, and absurdist contrast. It also patently denies traditional concepts of aesthetics.

“Cause I may be bad, but I’m perfectly good at it, Sex in the air, I don’t care, I love the smell of it, Sticks and stones may break my bones, But chains and whips excite me”
“S-S-S & M-M-M. S-S-S & M-M-M
Oh, I love the feeling you bring to me, oh, you turn me on, It’s exactly what I’ve been yearning for, give it to me strong, And meet me in my boudoir, make my body say ah ah ah”
Some stills from the video:
Rihanna’s success correlates with her increasingly sexualized lyrics and performances. She has received numerous awards and accolades, including five American Music Awards, eighteen Billboard Music Awards, two BRIT Awards and six Grammy Awards. Her “look” seems to be increasingly bondage oriented (perhaps as a way to appear tough after a public domestic abuse case.)
Still from her “We Found Love” video which furthered enraged feminists: “Rihanna’s new video is a disgrace,” said Kelly [Head of the Rape Crisis Center]. “It sends the message that she is an object to be possessed by men, which is disturbingly what we see in real violence cases.”
Here is a picture of Rihanna and her fans:
Update: Rihanna has committed to becoming the poster child for western “humanitarian” military intervention in Africa after promising she will visit Uganda to promote the Kony 2012 fraud, despite Ugandans themselves angrily distancing themselves from the viral propaganda film.
“The Wall has come down, the Stasi have demobilized and are no longer evident, yet in a strange way a spirit of Marxism is abroad in the West. A spirit of Marxism is abroad in the United States, unbelievably so! The number of American Marxist-Leninists you could have gotten in a few taxis to a certain extent, and yet this element of cultural Marxism is abroad in the United States, as it is in Western Europe, as it is in Northern and to a certain extent Southern Europe, as it is much less evidently so in post-Communist Eastern Europe, where there’s been an enormous reaction against it.” – Jonathan Bowden
The Black Eyed Peas
Top Hits: I Got a Feeling, Bom Bom Pow, Imma Be, and Just Can’t Get Enough.
Driving force in divorcing the use of America from proper use of the English language; retarded fashion.
Madonna is probably the most controversial pop star of all time, and a driving force to normalize sexuality, wild promiscuity, homosexuality, the mocking of Christianity and occult themes in popular culture.
All Madonna’s charity work is now focused on Africa (poverty, AIDS, blah blah). She is also is partnered with SocialVibe, the leading social media utility connecting people with brands, empowering them to engage with sponsors and share branded content with their social graph to benefit a cause of their choice. Ha, using brands “as a means of empowerment”. Greedy ass bitch.
Hits: Born Free, Paper Planes, Galang
M.I.A. cites guerrilla art and fashion as major influences
M.I.A. attributes much of her success to the “homeless, rootlessness” of her early life, and is considered to be a refugee icon. The EMP Museum’s 2008 Pop Conference featured paper submissions and discussions on M.I.A. presented on the theme of “Shake, Rattle: Music, Conflict, and Change.” Throughout her career, M.I.A. has used networking sites such as Twitter and MySpace to discuss and highlight human rights abuses and war crimes.
Prior to her 2008 Coachella festival appearance, M.I.A. filmed from her Bed Stuy apartment window and posted on YouTube an incident involving a black man being apprehended by white police officers, which in light of the Sean Bell shooting incident, elicited commentary debating the force used for the arrest.
MIA’s most controversial video is “Born Free,” which depicting genocide against red-haired adolescents (in America). It was a (not subtle) dig at Arizona’s immigration law. James Montgomery of MTV described it as “unflinchingly, unapologetically real” depicting “the kind of things that most nations — including the U.S., which is portrayed as the aggressor in the clip — often pretend don’t happen: the rounding-up of ethnic minorities, the trampling of personal liberties, the bullying of the powerless by those with authority.”
She supports the Unstoppable Foundation, co-funding the establishment of the Becky Primary School in Liberia. During her visit to Liberia she met the then President of Liberia, rehabilitated ex-child soldiers and appeared as part of a humanitarian mission there, hosting a “4Real” TV-Series documentary on the post war situation in the country with activist Kimmie Weeks.
“It’s taken a little bit of time to examine why Marxism, of all things, has ended up culturally influential in the United States. It’s got little to do with economic theory; it’s got much more to do with self-hatred and negation. Guilt. The extending of your own mental remit into groups that don’t care for you, or that purposefully wish you ill. And it’s got a lot more to do with the architectonics of the Frankfurt school, and its ability to morph and to merge into the general Liberal currency of the last 50 years” -Jonathan Bowden.
Top hits: I Kissed a Girl (and I liked it), Firework, The One that Got Away
Mostly famous for having boobs, dressing weird, and selling her soul to the devil.
I believe the part about selling her soul BTW. With a mug like this, who wouldn’t attribute her fame to an evil force? Yikes.
Here she is kissing a fan on the lips.
Here she is on Sesame Street:
Here she is with some fans.
and of course the reigning queen…..
Top Hits: Poker Face, Just Dance, Born this Way, Bad Romance, LoveGame and Telephone
Lady Gaga is known for outrageous blood soaked concerts and juxtaposing Christian and Satanic imagery with sexual and violent performances.
She has gone on to influence Fashion Week rundown shows and fashion in general.
She is also a dedicated polital activist. She is very vocal about gay rights, pro-immigration, “anti-bullying” (code word for hate speech/thoughts). The U.S. Department was “instrumental” in getting her to perform at the 2011 Europride gay pride event in Rome, as stated by Hillary Clinton. Why the USA is intervening in the socio-political events of Italy, I am not sure.
“As a humanitarian, she has launched her own non-profit organization, the Born This Way Foundation, which focuses on youth empowerment and issues like self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring, and career development.The foundation will work with a number of partners, including the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The California Endowment and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University. She also jumped into the debate surrounding SB 1070, Arizona’s recently-enacted anti-immigration law, after premiering her Born This Way song “Americano” on the Guadalajara stop of The Monster Ball Tour in Mexico, telling the local press that she could not “stand by many of the unjust immigration laws” in the US. A devoted advocate for the LGBTcommunity, Gaga is also an outspoken activist for LGBT rights worldwide. On February 29, 2012, Lady Gaga and Oprah Winfrey visited Harvard University to launch her Born This Way Foundation.”
Aside from her powerful social circle above, Gaga has also met with the Queen of England and is a rumored friend of Marxist Slavoj Zizek (who is a friend of Julian Assange- small world). He says of her famous meat dress: ” [The] dress is a reference to “the consistent linking in the oppressive imaginary of the patriarchy of the female body and meat, of animality and the feminine.”
Here are some pictures of the audience from her concerts:
Pop music and stars are marketed to appeal to the largest age demographic possible, which includes teenagers and children.
Lady Gaga started out as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta but did not have much success with her regular act. Once she changed her image into that of Lady Gaga, she was propelled into instant success. Her first album as Gaga, The Fame, made her a household name.
“The trick that the soft Left has learned is that if you disavow the hard edge of Leftist slaughter and Siberian camps and Stasi prison cells and you instead excel in the polymorphous rebellions of Herbert Marcuse and the student left of the 1960s, you can actually influence the whole soft spectrum from the moderate Right, through the Center, through the center-Left, through the general-Left/Generic-Left, through the soft Left, up to the softest accretions of the hard Left and to the moderate-hard Left. An enormous spectrum – two-thirds of the political spectrum — can be influenced by Marxist ideas shorn of their hard-edge Stalinist and Maoist filters.” - Jonathan Bowden
