Keep On Rockin' In The Twilight Zone
They were never who you thought they were, or who they thought they were.
Twilight Zone S01 E05: Injecting Freedom
Premiere Date: May 21, 1959
I want you to imagine a future, a not too distant future, where actors and musicians work on behalf of multi-national mega corporations who control all the governments of the world and work in tandem with unelected global technocrats. Imagine Elvis Presley telling those of his adoring fans who do not get themselves injected with an experimental toxin, for a virus that is no more deadly to them than the flu, that they are selfish killing machines putting all of mankind in danger by believing their bodies didn’t belong to these governments, corporations or the least intelligent and most neurotic of society. Imagine if you will these famous figures working on behalf of all powerful institutions to suppress freedom, bodily autonomy and civil liberties, while believing themselves to be stewards of righteousness and good will. In such a future, you will have entered the…
Twilight Zone New Normal.
There are numerous reasons Los Angeles is one of the most despicable places on earth. Trust me Good Citizens, I was born there. Even before the Soros-funded woke DA legalized violent crime to unleash a dystopian nightmare of deliberate anarcho-tyranny, or millions of homeless heroin addicts flocked there for the free needles and tiny canvas houses with gorgeous interstate freeway views; or the democrat policy reactions to a virus forced everyone toward a paradigm of herd animal behavior, child abuse and dehumanization, the city has always been a superficial and vapid national magnate for vain and narcissistic celebrity obsessed hordes to flock.
Actors and musicians. Musicians and actors. He has a script. She’s working on a project with so and so. “Have you heard of this new director blah blah blah? Well I’m doing set decoration on zir next film.” Today it’s also the mecca for the latest vapid and narcissistic craze of social media obsessed “hype houses” and “influencers”. Famous for downloading an application on their pocket computers and eagerly wasting their time making asses of themselves. It pays incredibly well to make an ass of yourself today. From Humphrey Bogart and Donna Reed to choreographing self debasing stunts to perform for the masses of low IQ automatons enamored with talentless nobodies. Welcome to the cultural New Normal.
When I asked a German friend what his impressions were of the city of angels, having traveled all over the United States, Europe, Asia and half of South America, he paused for a long moment to think and replied, “I don’t remember it so well to be honest. The only memory I have is the plane rising up over the pacific ocean and I looked back through the airplane window and all the way to the eastern horizon was smog and houses blended together like a wall of shit. I think my fondest memory was probably leaving.”
Imagine thinking because you had a few hit songs fifty years ago that you still had the power to cancel the largest podcaster in the world with over a hundred million listeners because you’re stupid enough to watch NPR and CNN and think that podcaster is disseminating “misinformation”. It takes a special level of delusion to arrive at this crossroads, willing to die on a big pharma/legacy media hill of propaganda and censorship while still believing you’re against “the man” and fighting “the system”.
There was good money to be made being against “the man” during the counter culture. It was the safe avenue, just like passively and obediently accepting what corporations, the controlled media and corrupt governments say today is the safe avenue. Ignorant and obnoxiously cringeworthy but completely safe. In the late 1960’s “the man” was the war, the draft, the FBI working against the radical ‘new left’, the conservative establishment in Nixon, in the religious foundations of the nuclear family staid 1950s idyllic Americana they could dangerously “rebel” against together.
There’s always safety in numbers. There’s always security when a movement pays very well in record and concert ticket sales and the number one consumer demographic is the coveted youth. It helps when the music and art are incredible too. But safety and security are key to understanding a movement that while against the institutions of power at the time, were still with little to no reputational or financial risk. Those with real skin in any movement risk being burned badly from the stance they take. That’s the first sign that the 1960s writers, filmmakers, artists and musicians never took any real risks, not to their pockets or reputation.
What made their art so effective and still cherished today was that they were the rebels, the skeptics, the ones going against all the power structures of the state, the military industrial complex and framed their crusade as being anti-establishment, anti-authority and for the people. All of that has been completely inverted the past twenty years, which is part of what has killed great art in America, because propaganda cannot exist as art. Art that obfuscates truth to serve institutions of power and ideological agendas will never be art, and this includes identity politics agendas driving casting decisions and choices of the woke cultural gatekeepers the past half decade.
This is why when you hear people like Neil Young obliviously servicing the agenda of the powerful while believing he’s doing something righteous for the people it truly feels like we’re living in the Twilight Zone.
Back then Neil Young created great music as he told us to keep on rockin’ in the free world. Today he wants to censor dissenting scientific voices on behalf of corporations and governments. So much for the free world. His lyrics will need a little retooling to better suit our present situation.
There's bodies on the street
from the Wuhan flu
People trippin’ on their feet
People flippin’ for the crew
There’s Chinese actors on the road ahead
There's oligarchs sayin' we'd be better off dead
Don't feel like thinkin’, don’t understand shame
If I cancel Joe Rogan, I’ll be relevant again
Keep on Rockin’ In Pfizer’s World!
Are you a Good Citizen?
The original ‘shock jock’ made his bread on being the rebel, saying naughty words on corporate radio way back when that was a thing. The more ‘shocking’ he became the more people tuned in, the more money he made. He took his act to sexual and perverted extremes and nothing was off limits, not even keeping a cabal of weird and mentally retarded regulars around to “goof on”. His nemesis was the corporate radio stooge Don Imus, whose stale and monotone schtick was relentlessly mocked by Stern.
Today the half-billionaire has become the very thing he was rebelling against all those years, he’s become Don Imus with lame sunglasses. Over the past year he has called “antivaxxers” idiots who put others in danger, who should have no rights and get no treatment at hospitals if they ever need it. He’s a petrified, neurotic wussy who is limousined in to his satellite radio gig where he avoids the filthy commoners shooting up heroin and people in the streets and says two words to the intern charged with primping and shining his silly wigs before he lazily phones in his latest audio performance and returns to his hourly-sanitized marble penthouse on central park’s billionaires row. Jimmy Dore recently summed up his pathetic state best.
“He’s famous for saying ‘pee-pee poo-poo’ on the radio, which back then was hated by the establishment. But today the establishment loves that as long as he says he’s voting for Hillary Clinton, so he is the status quo ladies and gentlemen, which means there is no point to Howard Stern anymore, except to serve the establishment, and be adored by Hillary Clinton, which is why he’s allowed on family television on ABC.”1
- Jimmy Dore
"There is a virus here, it kills people, and the only way we prevent it is get waxxinated, get masks, do social distancing, washing your hands all the time, and not just to think about ‘well my freedom is being kind of disturbed here’. No, screw your freedom.”
Screw your freedom! Screw it! It does not matter because there are “experts” out there telling us we should be very afraid and compliant and obey whatever they command. Cue the feeble minded traffic fallacy.
"We put the traffic light at the intersection so someone doesn’t kill someone else by accident… you cannot say, ‘no one is going tell me that I’m going to stop here at this traffic light here, I’m going to go right through it’, yeah, then you kill someone else and then it is your doing.”
VOICE OVER: Four months later…
This anabolic flathead terminator gets to whiz around from Beverly Hills eateries to Malibu farm-to-table cafes while flipping his oversized SUV onto electric vehicles to help save the planet while you rot at home like the obedient feckless sheep you are because, “Follow the science and get waxxinated and stay in the choppah and screw your freedom Amerikah!” From seven time Mr. Olympian with an insatiable desire to work hard and push boundaries and succeed as an actor and politician despite being barely comprehensible in English, to telling Americans who helped him realize endless success to screw their freedom for a sniffles virus because the unelected technocratic “experts” say so.
“There’s nobody that knows more about viruses than the experts who study this, like Fauci who has been at this probably his entire life, why would you not believe someone like him?”
Insert face palm emoji with bulging forearm and bicep.
This self serious clown likes to talk so let’s have him do all the talking…
“If you're willing to walk among us unvaccinated, you are an enemy.”
“You had to have been vaccinated. I don’t care about your political beliefs. You are not allowed to infect anybody just because you think you’ve got rights that are delusional.”
“You don't have the right to go through a red light, actually the government has the right to tell you to stop.” (Another traffic signal harm fallacy. Pure genius.)
“If they tell you you can't smoke in a building, you can't smoke in a building. And that's not because they want to take away your rights. That's because the rest of us hate it. We don't want to smell your smoke.” (The second hand smoke harm fallacy.)
Gene Simmons doesn’t need any more help embarrassing himself. This is about as proficient as it gets for the obedient braindead celebrity. His lyrics will require a rework though.
You infect with everything you've got
You keep on maskin' and blow all that snot
You infect us mild, we'll give you crazy
You say you want an injection
The nanorazor’s just begun, we'll let it circle in
You clot the blood, we'll say that’s crazy
You keep on shoutin', you keep on shoutin'
I wanna mask and hide all night and eat every day!
The number of clueless celebrities is so depressingly long, so let’s pivot toward the “positive”, the handful of critical thinkers and skeptics who aren’t afraid to speak out against some of our present day madness.
Let’s forgive this woman her sad moments, and Good Citizens there are so many. The pussy hat parade speech comes to mind: “I dream of one day blowing up the white house.” Imagine someone saying that after Biden’s inauguration. They’d have 100 secret service agents and FBI converge in formation to take them down and put them in solitary confinement without a trial. That’s how you know which party has all the institutions of power corrupted in its favor. Let’s forgive her obnoxious desire to be relevant by contorting herself into all positions of cringe and embarrassment for a few likes on instashame and focus on a recent interview she gave in November that people like Gene Simmons, Howard Stern and Neil Young could learn a lot from.
“It’s interesting because peace is subjective. The way people think about the pandemic, for instance, that the vaccination is the only answer or the polarisation of thinking you’re either on this side or the other. There’s no debate, there’s no discussion.”
She continued: “No one’s allowed to speak their mind right now. No one’s allowed to say what they really think about things for fear of being cancelled, cancel culture. In cancel culture, disturbing the peace is probably an act of treason.”
On self censorship: “The thing is, the quieter you get, the more fearful you get, the more dangerous anything is. We’re giving it power by shutting the fuck up completely.”3
It’s surprising to see the lead singer of the 1980’s band The Stone Roses still on twitter. He’s been one of the great dissenting popular voices on the platform, fearless and bold and quick to challenge the emotionally fragile bedwetters who constantly try to cancel him.
Brown released a great song last year challenging the pandemic madness. Check out the video for “Little Seed, Big Tree” here. Some of the Lyrics:
Masonic lockdown in your hometown
Masonic lockdown, can you hear me now?
From the top down, soul shot down
State shakedown, mass breakdown
Global orders, riding over borders
Get behind your doors for the new world order
Doctor Evil and his needle
Doctor Evil with a masterplan
A forced vaccine, like a bad dream
They'll plant a microchip, every woman, child and man
They plan to chip us all to have complete control
The land, the sky, your soul
He’s been fearless for the past year, speaking out against vaccines and mandates and more recently mentioned that the Covidian Borg is suffering from mass formation psychosis. Of course the powerful institutions cannot stand a popular figure who might snap people out of their hypnotic thrall so they’ve taken to smearing him with the usually meaningless labels like “antivaxxer”.
“Lived experience” is the latest expression touted by the NPC Borg who prefer anecdotes to evidence when it suits their cause. Eric Clapton’s lived experience is nearly being paralyzed after his second Moderna Jab. He couldn’t feel his hands and feet and thought for weeks that he’d never recover and never play music again and so he must be smeared and canceled as a dangerous ‘antivaxxer’. So much for “lived experience”. A month ago he released a song and music video entitled “Heart of a Child”, a not-so-subtle shot at the institutionalized madness of approving experimental injections for children to shield Pfizer from legal liability.
Rolling Stone magazine has become like all other media outlets these days, useless drooling stenographers for corporate-state power. When Van Morrison publicly challenged the power of unelected bureaucrats in Northern Ireland who “have all the power” to lock down society and called it “dangerous”, Rolling Stone obediently obliged the health minister by publishing his embarrassing op-ed targeting Van Morrison’s dissent of him: “His words will give great comfort to the conspiracy theorists,” he wrote. “The tinfoil hat brigade who crusade against masks and vaccines and think this is all a huge global plot to remove freedoms.”
This health minister is also suing Van Morrison. Rolling Stone did its duty by calling the musician’s actions in accordance with their servility to big pharma and globalist government dictates: “After a year of sharing anti-lockdown and Covid-19 conspiracy bait under the guise of protest music, Van Morrison is being sued by Northern Ireland Health Minister Robin Swann for defamation.”4
Under the guise of protest music? Remember when Rolling Stone magazine was somewhat edgy and relevant? That isn’t something we imagined way back then was it?
When the present feels so much like an alternate bizarre reality that has subsumed humanity, the kind of wrong timeline that takes Marty McFly off course in Back To The Future 2, it’s hard to know what future we’re really living. At least we know whose who, as the demarcations lines are drawn. Historical narratives always favor the victors who get to pen them, so let’s make sure we don’t lose this Silent War Good Citizens.
Imagine if you will, a not too distant past when actors, musicians and celebrities knew the limitations of their knowledge and did not mistake their artistic talents or wealth for intellect and insight into some of the greatest social and political challenges of our time. They knew the inherent deficiencies and corruptibility of the state and corporate powers, and of ideologies that dared to put their boot on the face of mankind.
Any state, any ideology, entity that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of man, that state is obsolete, and so too are the buffoonish celebrities that serve these maniacs.
