Kanye West is the living embodiment of the American “me, me, me” culture obsessed with trivial matters while the world burns.
The rapper is back in the headlines after he trashed musician Beck, who can play 16 instruments, for winning a Grammy Award over Beyoncé, who employs dozens of songwriters for a single album.
“I just know that the Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us,” he told E! News. “We ain’t gonna play with them no more.”
“And Beck needs to respect artistry and he should’ve given his award to Beyoncé.”
Kanye, who also interrupted Taylor Swift’s 2009 Video Music Award acceptance speech to promote Beyoncé, is the microcosm of America’s self-absorbed, narcissistic culture more concerned over pointless controversies in music and sports than the decline of the dollar, the destruction of the Bill of Rights and the eradication of national sovereignty.
After the last Super Bowl, for example, many Americans were more concerned about Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll’s play calling than they were about President Obama, even though Obama has spent the past six years putting America on the road to serfdom which, unlike football, will have lasting effects on individual Americans.
And every year Black Friday sales turns American shoppers into zombies who’ll eat each other alive to “save money” on electronic slave goods even though the Black Friday “sales” are scams which deceive shoppers into believing they are getting a good deal when in fact the products were marked-up prior to the sales.
“The percentage of people who actually care about real issues and actually want to do something about them, although growing, still represents a small minority in comparison to a vast majority who are perfectly content to sit on their asses and watch Miley Cyrus licking a sledgehammer while their country collapses,” Paul Joseph Watson wrote.
Societies disintegrate from within far more frequently than by external threats, and Americans cannot stop the decline of the U.S. by focusing on trivial concerns.
