It isn’t likely to happen with Naomi Campbell, but sometimes celebrities do something right. You can tell this has happened when the media abruptly shifts from obsequious fawning to righteous denunciation.
A headline at Variety:
Van Morrison and Eric Clapton Strike the Wrong Note About COVID-19
Tightly clutching her pearls, the author shrieks:
In what world are these two living?
The fact that they would decide to collaborate on a song slamming COVID-19 lockdowns, discouraging people from taking extreme precautions and wearing masks to protect themselves and others, is beyond unconscionable.
The crime of these classic rockers is to release the song “Stand and Deliver,” which objects to the COVID-19 tyranny that the media holds dearer even than celebrity worship.
For Van Morrison, this is not a first offense.
Earlier this fall, Morrison released three other songs protesting the ongoing lockdown in the U.K., where, by the way, some news reports state that as many as 75,000 lives have been lost.
Does he not understand that all these lives would have been saved had Britain jettisoned its long tradition of liberty so as to impose draconian lockdown decrees? Oh wait, that’s what Britain did. But too much tyranny is never enough to suit the MSM.
The great Eric Clapton has transgressed. Out comes the racism club:
When Clapton announced last week that he was teaming with Morrison on a fourth anti-lockdown song to raise money for struggling artists during the pandemic, racist remarks he made onstage at his concert in Birmingham, England, in 1976 about keeping “Britain white” were unearthed on Twitter. He got pummeled on social media — rightfully so…
Wanting to keep England English is even more “unconscionable” than wanting to keep it free. Eric Clapton, consider yourself canceled. Your music will vanish.
In contrast to the thought criminals Morrison and Clapton, moonbat celebrities are caressed with coos of praise:
Meanwhile, humanitarian Bruce Springsteen teamed with fellow New Jersey artists Jon Bon Jovi and Jon Stewart to launch a statewide “Wear a Friggin’ Mask!” billboard campaign in which the three are featured wearing COVID masks.
This trio actually stood up and delivered.
That could be why so many entertainers are moonbats like Springsteen and Bon Jovi. It gets them good press, and good press equals money.
Listen fast before YouTube censors this for standing up to authorities:
Maybe it’s a matter of taste, but that sure sounds better than anything I’ve heard from Bruce Springsteen or Bon Jovi.
On a tip from Lyle.
It didn’t take the apparatchiks at YouTube long to censor this song, as predicted. There was a time when no American would have put up with this level of censorship. Hear the song via BitChute here.
