I wrote a post awhile back, talking about how it seems as if music is no longer rebellious. When Music was Rebellious
And then I heard about the China stuff the other day. Actually, China controlling the market and enforcing censorship on American products, movies, music and anything else sold in China, is rather old news (been happening for decades). What I shoulda said was, that I recently heard about how the Chinese government influences our market, from the Mainstream Media, the other day.
Isn’t it funny how, celebrities and sports people and movie directors are praised and regaled, by presidents and other rulers. Yet…I wonder if this is a symptom of a President Trump. Not in the strategic sense, but more or less, that people are loosing their minds, with the hate and vitriol that they feel for trump. That all of these “secrets” are finally being talked about in the mainstream.
How long have the Oscars been so Chinese?
Vans, a skater shoe company (talk about rebellious) also kissed the Chinese ring, by refusing to produce a shoe that commemorated the current struggle in Hong Kong.
And the entire NBA, cannot wait to suck on that Chinese titty! Apparently, yen 💴 is sweeter than freedom for all! So much for equality, I guess?
I find all of this humorous, so much so, it almost feels like a “told ya so”.
This is like that one time when it was revealed that actresses traded sex for movie roles! Whoda thunk it? I’ll tell ya who, everyone with damn brain.
