The Tyranny of Cool

GREG GUTFELD: A timely rebuttal of the fundamental problem America faces: the elitist domination of our culture and creative classes.

Without a doubt voter fraud helped put Obama over the top in places like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida.

But like Hugh Hewitt says, “If it’s not close, they can’t cheat.”

The only reason the voter fraud can work, can make the difference by ginning up an illicit percentage point or three, is by being aided and abetted by the legitimate votes of millions and millions of citizens who have been hypnotized by the buzzing of the collectivist hive mind. The blatant message constantly transmitted is America is not cool. Liberty is not cool.

The hostility to American greatness oozes out of practically every TV show, movie, classroom, and news station in this country. I’ve lived and worked amongst the herd of the creative class for decades now, and their unthinking conformity to collectivist dogma would be laughable if it were not so dangerous to our freedom.

It’s amazing we haven’t fallen farther already, considering the 100 year assault this country’s principles have suffered.

But Cultural Marxism can only succeed if it’s obligatory. Political correctness tries to limit options so the left is the only choice.

We are working to create an alternative to the rigid controls our would-be rulers want to impose on us.

Forget cool. Dead things are cool. Now is the time to get fiery.

An Unexpected Journey

Sorry for a gap of few days in posting, we had a visit to make on short notice. Family manifests the richness of life. I love them all, and wish I could see more of everyone, all the time.

To continue the Tolkein motif, Gaypatriot expands on Ace’s Treebeardian wisdom on the recent election: Don’t be hasty.

The parallels our struggle is taking on to various modern mythos-Tolkien, Harry Potter, Firefly-is inspiring. The artists have foretold the outcome of the actions we are embarking on. The righteous will persevere despite overwhelming odds. Art should be full of these same type of examples.

Commentary: Art’s Number One Controversy

Over a year ago, the infamous Andres Serrano photo Piss Christ  got the blasphemy treatment.

In this case the forces of outraged vandalism were Christians, not Islamists. But apparently some Christians have noticed how the Muslim threats of violence against any perceived slight makes everyone else act properly submissive to their demands.

The establishment art world holds double standards on the treatment of organized religions. Elitist artists congratulate themselves for deriding the beliefs of so-called narrow minded Christians, while turning a blind eye to the aggressive homophobia, repression and intolerance of the militant Islamic world.

Why?

Fear. These artistic poseurs are knuckling under to bullies, all the while claiming to be iconoclastic champions of free expression. The hypocrisy is disgraceful.

Commentary: Contemporary Art Bubble?

Forbes identifies trouble ahead.

Speculating based on…what?
A valid concern. Since there is almost no correlation between the quality of a work of contemporary art and the value the culture industry places on it,  it’s hard to gauge it’s long term potential as an investment.

Because ultimately what is being sold is not the art itself. What’s being purchased is what the ownership of certain types of contemporary art is meant to signify.

Appreciation of the dominant strains of contemporary art – conceptualism, minimalism, abstraction -is part of the package deal of elitism and political correctness.  Embracing these forms of art flaunts one’s membership amongst the self-anointed upper crust.

Any old junk will do as the actual art object, as long as it meets the right criteria-concerns which are not even aesthetic in nature.  The art market is saturated with the mediocre output of artists who fit the preferred demographics, who espouse the desirable attitudes, and above all, kiss the correct asses.

Of course the bottom is going to drop out of this market based on the false narratives of the establishment. All the better to prepare the way for the genuine expression of Remodernism, the true art of the future.

 

 

 

Commentary: PoMo No Mo

They’re finally declaring Postmodernism dead.

Was it ever alive to begin with?

This is from 2011, but the art world is still in the denial phase of grief.
What the author of this piece discusses as the dawning Age of Authenticism has already begun.  The destruction of the Leftist monopoly of culture that Post Modernism represents is well underway.

The NeoMarxist Narrativephiles  ran out of resources and credibility before their goal of domination was complete. The rollback of their entrenched influence will be a long process but their defeat is inevitable, based on the massive failure of their ideas.
No more Narrative and Deconstruction. Time to get real again.
