Noam Chomsky - The 5 Filters of the Mass Media Machine

Image
"To manufacture consent, you need a common enemy. A target." Noam Chomsky is the guy who Pop Punk Moron Fat Mike references in his pop-punk song "Franco-Unamerican" while he foolishly plays in to corporate America's political agenda. As illustrated in this video... If you still think Fat Mike is someone worth looking up to, you might be a Pop Punk Moron.

BREAKING UP WITH THE "TOLERANT" LEFT

Image
I think we are at the point where we need to make punching people in the face a thing again. I think we are all collectively fed up with being harassed and bullied by leftists. Even people that typically agree with the left are turning against the left. I personally have cut-off quite a few "friendships" over the past year or so because I got tired of seeing people I thought were my "friends" being outright immature and verbally abusive towards anyone that they felt wasn't displaying outright contempt and hostility for a specific politician. Most of which flies in the face of everything they claimed said politician to be... "he's a racist" they say while bashing white people... "he's sexist" they say while demonizing men... "He says awful things" they say while calling others names and cyber-bullying them. At what point do we say enough is enough and stop letting a bunch of little Eric Cartmans harass us into subservience? F

THE VANDALS DISCOGRAPHY TIER LIST

These tier lists are basically a way for me to talk about the music I grew up with while also giving me an opportunity to tell stories relating to the music.  Trying something new with our tier list formula. We are really trying to grow our YouTube channel, so we are focusing this tier-list on our videos instead of a written article. We may release the written article at a later time.  Help us reach 1,000 subscribers ! Subscribing to the channel helps us with the YouTube algorithm. If you prefer, you can watch the full length video in one take. Read the " Bad or Bad-Ass? " short story featuring Little Rudger inspired by the time I almost got in a fight with skinheads at a New Year's Eve festival.

Is JOE ESCALANTE of THE VANDALS a POP PUNK MORON?

Image
In 2018, The Vandals performed at Sabrosa Beer, Taco & Music Festival in Dana Point, CA. During their performance, Joe Escalante made some disparaging comments about "pop" punk. A few songs later, The Vandals closed their set with their hit song "My Girlfriend's Dead" which starts off with the band singing " bah bah bah bah bah ." Is Joe Escalante of The Vandals a total moron? If your band has a lawyer playing bass and you get sued by The Daily Variety for mocking their artwork, then yes you might be a complete and utter moron. 😁 What is with the older geriatric generation of elitist gatekeeper punks' obsession with writing pop punk music while attempting to distance themselves from the term? Is that why no one in the crowd is moving and only 5 people are in the pit? Out with the old. In with the new. Funny that The Vandals most successful album to date ( Hitler Bad, Vandals Good ) was a full-fledged pop-punk album. 🤷 Go home Joe, your Alzhei
