Hillary Clinton participated in a star packed concert yesterday with a concert featuring Jay Z, Beyoncé, Chance the Rapper and Big Sean, all to inject enthusiasm for her shaky campaign t among African-Americans and younger voters, because anyone else would rip their ears off and feed them to a shredder rather than listen to this stuff.
“I want my daughter to grow up seeing a women lead our country and knowing that her possibilities are limitless,” said Beyoncé. “And that’s why I am with her.”
Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z have also spent the past year lucratively linking their art and promotion to Black Lives Matter and demonizing police as racist killers. Is Hillary Clinton with them?
Hubby Jay-Z, meanwhile, observed trenchantly,
“If you feelin’ like a pimp nigger, go and brush your shoulders off…Ladies is pimps too, go and brush your shoulders off! N—– is crazy baby, don’t forget that boy told you. Get that dirt off your shoulders.”
Admittedly, this is somewhat better than the many times in the past when Jay-Z, who also rapped “FuckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt” last night and was introduced as “the motherfuckinggreatest!”—wait, is fucking mothers among the behaviors that Beyoncé endorses in the feminist Nirvana to come?—“sang”..
“You ain’t no better because you don’t be fucking rappers; You only fuck with actors / You’re still getting fucked backwards”
Admittedly, the Hillary enthusiast didn’t perform this immortal hit last night, but that’s still Jay-Z, the feminism champion Hillary allied herself with in order to get the votes of his fans.
Funny, though: none of the news media that wrote about the concert mentioned any of the language, or referred to the attitudes reflected in Hillary’s celebrity supporters’ art. Here’s the New York Times report this morning for example. (The CNN report is linked above.) The Times represented the concert to its readers to be as civil as a scholarly conference on the literary criticism of Joyce and Proust, with nary a fuck, motherfucking, or nigger within earshot. How peculiar! A sample of the Times’ reportage:
“Hello, Cleveland!” Mrs. Clinton said as she stood onstage with Beyoncé and Jay Z.
Mrs. Clinton called Beyoncé “a woman who is an inspiration to so many others” and thanked Jay Z “for addressing in his music some of our biggest challenges in the country: poverty, racism, the urgent need for criminal justice reform.”
…the need for blacks to fear and hate police, the systemic racism of white society, getting fucked backwards…what’s that? Hillary didn’t mention these? Must have been a teleprompter malfunction.
What’s the matter with me? Why would I expect the Times, or CNN, to report aspects of the concert that expose the hypocrisy, the cynicism, the desperation and the lack of integrity of a candidate for the highest office in the land? After all, those news organizations want Clinton to prevail, so hiding her unattractive features and revolting conduct from voters is natural and right, assuming the journalists choose to defy the ethical duties of their profession, which clearly they have.
The only news source so rude and biased as to report what certainly looks like utter hypocrisy, pandering and a double standard by Hillary last night is the Investors Business Daily, a conservative website, so it must be making it all up, of course.
So who, other than Hillary, of course, were the Ethics Dunces last night?
Jay-Z is an Ethics Dunce not to hold his obscene mouth in check and cool it with the fucks and niggas, so a Presidential candidate, even one used to disgracing herself with hypocrisy, didn’t have to do it again.
The Democrats are Ethics Dunces—not that they care–to put Mrs. Clinton on stage with misogynist, race-bating, uncivil rappers while her campaign is running a TV ad questioning Donald Trump’s ability to be a good role model for kids, because he is so uncivil and disrespectful of women. Donald Trump’s a poor role model, but Hillary endorses the speech and demeanor of men who say fuck and nigga in public, and who make millions singing,
“You ain’t no better because you don’t be fucking rappers; You only fuck with actors / You’re still getting fucked backwards!”
That is, she endorses them as long as they can do something for her.
The mainstream news media is an institutional Ethics Dunce, because it sees no reason to let the public know and understand who they are voting for. I continued to be horrified that alleged liberals accept this democracy-rotting conduct from journalists. It is indefensible; they could stop it; yet they just smile and look the other way.
They are ideological Ethics Dunces.
I have written, and correctly, that President Donald Trump would turn the U.S. into a nation of assholes. Hillary Clinton, who was happy to have her corrupted followers condemn Donald Trump for using ugly words and imagery in a private conversation no less misogynist and far less violent than the words repeatedly used in huge arenas by her patron last night, doesn’t care if the young evolve into assholes, as long as they give her power first.
This episode enlightened me concerning one aspect of ethics where Donald Trump is superior to Hillary Clinton. It is the realm of what I call Asshole Ethics. Donald Trump is an asshole, acts like an asshole, talks like an asshole, and has never pretended to be anything else.
In that narrow and hardly ennobling sense, he has integrity. Hillary Clinton does not.
