BEWARE OF BEASTS IN PRIESTS’ CLOTHING

America’s vulgar and militaristic “culture”

D’EVOLUTION OF AMERICAN CULTURE

Oversexed, overweight and undernourished – spiritually and intellectually – masses led by beasts in priests’ clothing

Some 81 million Americans believe the Sun revolves around the Earth!

The D’EVOLUTION cartoon in the header of this editorial was published as a Jan 2018 cover by a leading German magazine Der Spiegel. It makes a case that America is devolving – going backward, not forward. And I can add, the country has probably never been more polarized than it is now.

That’s a political view. But where politics go, culture can’t be far behind. And in some cases, culture has been actually leading the way – backward, appealing to our most base and primitive instincts.

Look at the above images. Those are some of the icons of America’s “music.”

This is what I wrote on that subject in  my “Dumbing Down of America” piece – the title of my August 1997 Washington Times column “Dancing ‘Round the Golden Calf“:

“America is rapidly becoming a nation of mutts. Our country’s traditional character is being systematically destroyed by nihilistic “liberals,” the New World Order’s centurions whose only God is the Almighty Dollar.

The same kinds of people invented the “dictatorship of the proletariat,” and applied it to the unsuspecting Russians. Now, they are trying to ram a “dictatorship of the minorities” down the naive Americans’ throats…

Take the music., for example The romantic serenity of the “classical” (Christian) composers – like Bach, Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Liszt and others – has been usurped by the pagan beat of rap or the heavy metal rock bands which dominate our airwaves…

Why? Because the powers that be in today’s America have chosen to put their money into… pagan music and violent movies. Or into gladiator-like sports, like football or basketball. Meet America’s role models, the superstar gladiators.”

That’s what I wrote 21 years ago. Yet every word of this opening passage rings even truer today than it did in August 1997.

Some 81 million Americans believe the Sun revolves around the Earth!

You think I am kidding? Tragically, I am not.

In 2012, a survey of 2,200 people by the National Science Foundation posed this question, among others: “Does the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth?”

A quarter of Americans chose the latter. That’s about 81 million people, according to the population census.

Vulgarity in “Music”

Or just look at the vulgarity of today’s “music” stars, for example, the idols of new generations of dumbed-down Americans.

Just like the tawdry bars and strip joints, they flaunt nudity and sex, even sometimes on stage. They act like the pagan priests and priestess while mocking the traditional morality icons, such as Jesus and Gandhi, for example. in this Lady Gaga video.

They even shrink from promoting the use of drugs (again, Lady Gaga) and other forms of self destructive behavior.

As a result, they are splitting up the country and tearing down the traditional American values to shreds, like that tattered flag, while promoting sex, violence and militarization of our society.

That is the new “culture” the New World Order, or Deep State, if you prefer, have been trying to impose on America for over half a century now. Only the people who hate this country and our traditional values and morality would want to do that. And the modern rock stars are their centurions in the war against the American family (also see – NEW WORLD ORDER’S WAR ON AMERICAN FAMILY, Jan 2015).

NEW WORLD ORDER SOCIAL AGENDA:femcia

* Defeminize the female, emasculate the male

* Destroy the American family by sending women into the work force

* Brainwash children to become obedient dolts and shopping automats as adults 

… THEN TAX AND RULE THE WORLD 

Also see my 1995 Truth in Media editorial “Green Interstate” which I reworked into a WASHINGTON TIMES column “When Cultures Collide…” published in Aug 1996 and this June 2016 update NO MULTIETHNIC COUNTRY IS SECESSION-PROOF. The piece predicted a break up of America along ethnic and cultural lines – just as what the New World Order engineered in Yugoslavia in the early 1990s.

YESTERYEAR STARS

Let us now compare the modern vulgar rock star images to these cultural idols of the 1930s and 1940s.

Yesteryear stars

What do you see?

You see wholesome Christians. What’s not visible on these images is that they are also TALENTED musicians or actors. Like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire for example (see below).

They did not flaunt sex. That trend started with Elvis Presley in the 1950s.. Artists like Rogers and Astaire, Shirley Temple, Doris Day and others tried to use their gifts to uplift the SPIRITS of their audiences. Just like Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt, Wagner, Verdi, Tchaikovsky… and other great 18th and 19th century composers did.

We can deduce, therefore, that the modern “music,” “art” and film are being pushed upon us by the ruling “elite,” who are really a vulgar mob, so as to SEPARATE us from God and our spirit guides. That is also part of the New World Order aka Deep State agenda. They want us only to worship money and power money can buy.

Just as I said in my 1997 Washington Times column “Dancing ‘Round the Golden Calf” – culture, the priests of the New World Order – the rock and movie stars – are actually leading back to animalistic behavior. So…

BEWARE OF BEASTS IN PRIESTS’ CLOTHING

And now, with that as background information, I invited you to check out my recent correspondence with a programming director of Phoenix’s only classical music station – KBAQ. Whether by design or subconconnciously, their programming selections are also contributing to the dumbing down and militarization of American culture.


MY CORRESPONDENCE WITH THE PHOENIX AREA CLASSICAL MUSIC RADIO STATION

Feb 5, 2018

TO: KBAQ 

Subject: Programming complaint

Hello. I am a supporting member and a regular listener of your classical music programs. And I have a complaint about your programming selections. You have entirely TOO MUCH HAYDEN and TOO MUCH TRUMPETS/MILITARISTIC music.

Please tell your programming director that music is one of the highest levels of SPIRITUAL connection with the Divine – as Beethoven, Liszt, Tchaikovsky, Berlioz and Mozart have amply demonstrated. It is not about military parades and marching bands. Save that for the Superbowl crowds and their animalistic “music.”

So I respectfully request less or no Hayden and other trumpet-based militaristic music.

Thank you.

Bob

FROM: Brian Smith, KBAQ’s associate programming director

Hi, Mr. Djurdjevic,

Please pardon the delay in addressing your concerns. Thanks so much for being both a listener and a member.

On Monday afternoon, just a little while before you wrote, I see that Linda played the Haydn Drumroll Symphony — and an hour before she played the Haydn Trumpet concerto .Please believe me: that is not common! In looking at today’s programming, we have four Haydn pieces evenly spread across 24 hours. Yesterday, there were three.

Haydn, as the father of both the symphony and the string quartet, is a composer who must get his due. Moving forward, the odds are good his music will be distributed as evenly as yesterday and today.

It’s more difficult address your other concern. Marches can be seen as militaristic, of course, as can certain brass passages in music. Overall, we strive for balance in mood and pace, and different times of day bring different focuses. Listening between 9 PM and 5 AM, for example, is going to be a different experience than listening from 9 AM to 4 PM.

All that said, we are always assessing our programming, and comments from members are important to us in making changes. We are not likely to make sudden and major shifts, but we’re always adjusting. Your comments are helpful in that process.

Kind regards,
Brian

TO: Brian Smith, KBAQ

Thank you for your reply, Mr Smith. I appreciate your explanation.

I only used Hayden as a case in point for that day. It’s not just Hayden. I don’t know if it is my bad luck or what, but it seems every time my wife and I get into our car and go somewhere with your radio music on, there is some trumpeting going on, either Baroque or from the 20th century. As my wife is my witness, I just turned the radio off when that happens. And lately, I have been having to do that quite a bit.

It seems to me that unfortunately your station is fitting in with its programming the overall militarization of our society. I feel that you should not only LISTEN to your audiences, but also LEAD them and EDUCATE them about the spiritual quality of music, not to mention the HEALING aspect of it. Which is why I finally set some time aside to write to you and let you know how I feel about your programming.

But I realize I am probably not your average listener. I am a pianist and music arranger myself who has made several hundred music video, mostly of classical music. Most of my music comes to me in dreamtime. And then play it and record it often not knowing what the piece is. Until some of my musically educated friends around the world identify it for me. If they can’t, well, perhaps some of my recordings are originals then.

If you’re interesting, you can check some of them out if you’re interesting at my https://altzar.net/ (current) and altzar.org (2013 and prior) websites.

Thank you again for your reply and explanation.

Bob

WE REAP WHAT WE SOW

Florida school shooting: Another result of militarization of American culture

NEWS STORY, FEB 14, 2018 – https://on.rt.com/8z87: The attack on a Florida high school on Wednesday, is the eighth school shooting to result in injury or death so far this year, and the 18th incident involving gunfire in schools.

The figure is more than double that of the same period last year, according to data from Everytown for Gun Safety, a group which tracks gun violence at schools and universities.

Last year’s figures show that by mid-February there were seven school gunfire incidents, of which two resulted in injuries or fatalities. The total number of school shootings for 2017 stood at 65, according to the group. 

ALTZAR: What just happened in Florida is but one result of the militarization of the American culture has led to. To defuse this, we don’t just take the guns away from people. That’s just treating the symptoms. We take out Hollywood – the source of this disease. And stop our government’s global warmongering.

ARIZONA MUSICFEST: A BRIGHT LIGHT ON AMERICAN CLASSICAL MUSIC SCENE

Elizabeth and I attended our first concert yesterday within the Arizona Musicfest 2018, a classical music festival that has been held for 27 years. It was encouraging to see and sellout classical music event, and hear the story of the Musicfest success.

By the time the festival ends in early March, more than 20,000 people will have attended the carious concerts. Which is great, although it does not change one iota of my editorial on the devolution of American culture – BEWARE OF BEASTS IN PRIESTS’ CLOTHING (Feb 5, 2018).

Why not?

Because over 95% of the audience were people over 60. The current and future generations of young people. In 1937, the median age at orchestra concerts in Los Angeles was 28. Think of that!

For more on that, check out this very good 2014 article article on how the classical music in America is going down the drain:

Requiem: Classical music in America is dead

ANOTHER CONCERT IN SCOTTSDALE

Last night, Elizabeth and I attended another classical music concert in downtown Scottsdale. This time, it was just the piano rendition of Bach’s and Chopin’s music performed by Jeffrey Siegel.

Here are some photos we took…

  1. Боб, здравствуйте!
    К огромному сожалению в нашей стране происходит то же. В советские временя у нас бытовала фраза – Тлетворное влияние запада. Сейчас я в полной мере принимаю это. Я уже не стану говорить об поп культуре, там уже давно все внимание отдано “поющим трусикам”. Оголенные девчонки поют под фонограммы. А парни, отрастив бороды – чем они позиционируют себя как мужественных и сильных мужчин, тоненькими голосками блеют о несчастной любви.
    Меня и многих почитателей высокого искусства возмутила постановка в Большом театре балета НУРИЕВ. Я пока его не видела этот балет, так как достать билеты в Большой очень сложно. Надеюсь, что в скором времени ажиотаж спадет, и билеты будут в свободной продаже. Но в сети уже есть видео фрагменты. Представьте, когда открывается занавесь, то глазам зрителей представлено огромное фото обнаженного мужчины.
    Не могу присоединить фото, но посмотрите в поисковиках – Балет Нуриев.

    1. GOOGLE TRANSLATION: Bob, hello!
      To our great regret, the same thing is happening in our country. In Soviet times, we had a phrase – The pernicious influence of the West. Now I fully accept this. I will no longer talk about pop culture, there has long been all the attention given to the “singing panties”. Barely devoured singing to the soundtracks. And the guys, having grown beards – than they position themselves as courageous and strong men, with thin voices bleating about unhappy love.
      Me and many admirers of high art were indignant at the staging at the Bolshoi Ballet of Nuriev. I have not seen this ballet yet, since it’s very difficult to get tickets to Big. I hope that soon the excitement will subside, and tickets will be on sale. But there are already video fragments on the network. Imagine when the curtain opens, then the eyes of the audience are presented with a huge photo of a naked man.
      I can not attach a photo, but look in the search engines – Nureyev Ballet.

    2. Thank you for your comment, Аля. I am saddened to hear that Russia has also been infected with the western vulgarity in art and music. And ballet, as you point out. I still remember riding on a Moscow metro in the late 1990s and seeing so many people READ books. Some were even poetry book. You never see that kind of a thing in America or in Western Europe. Trashy magazines – yes. But not books. And definitely not poetry.

      I was also impressed by the quality of some Russian classical musicians who were playing in a restaurant. When my daughter and I talked to them, it turns out that was their second job. Their daytime job was playing with Moscow symphony orchestra. 🙂

      I have not heard about the nude “live” ballet performance of Nureyev. But I have seen such pictures online.

      Thank you for sharing.

  2. Bob, примите мои соболезнования. Такое горе для близких и друзей погибших школьников во Флориде. К огромному сожалению эта “болезнь” встречается и в нашей стране. Уже было несколько подобных случаев.

    1. GOOGLE TRANSLATION: Bob, accept my condolences. Such grief for loved ones and friends of deceased students in Florida. Unfortunately, this “disease” is also found in our country. There have already been several such cases.

      Thank you, Аля. You are right. It is a tragedy. I don’t know if you have seen my earlier comment about it. If not, here it is:

  3. Я читала. Дело в том, что в наших кинотеатрах показывают много Голливудских фильмов, в которых много крови и насилия. Что они могут вложить в молодые не окрепшие души детей. В девяностых годах наши киношники то же снимали много телесериалов, которые показывали пьянство, наркоманию и убийства. Слава Богу, что сейчас наш кинематограф изменился. Но наши компьютерщики выпускают игры пропагандирующие милитаризм. Это очень грустно. Грустно то что часть нашей молодежи не стремится к учебе, а сидят в сети и зарабатывает деньги за рекламы.

    1. GOOGLE TRANSLATION: I read. The fact is that in our cinemas are shown many Hollywood films, in which there is a lot of blood and violence. What can they invest in the young, not strengthened souls of children. In the nineties, our filmmakers also shot a lot of television series that showed drunkenness, drug addiction and murder. Thank God that now our cinema has changed. But our computer scientists are releasing games that promote militarism. It is very sad. It’s sad that some of our youth do not want to study, but sit on the net and earn money for advertising.
