After watching Taylor Swift and Stevie Nicks butcher "Rhiannon", and the producers paying tribute to Michael Jackson by doing exactly what he went to great lengths not to do, put his kids on parade, I think I've given up on the Grammys. But the RecordingAcademy could save this one jaded viewer by including another category that has been much overlooked: Best Recording/Video By A F***ing Wacko Bigoted Religious Organization.
That award would have unanimously gone to The Amazing producers of the video below, The Westboro Baptist Church.(not affiliated to the Town Of Westborough, MA...they can't even spell it right! Nice touch.) For those not familiar with their work, they focus mainly on rgae towards homosexuals. They believe Gays are mostly responsible for the 9/11 attacks and any other scourge that brings suffering on the American people. You may have seen them protestingat a Soldiers funeral, celebrating the death as a punishment by God because of this country's tolerance of Gay rights. Their spokespeople are masters af the art of argument as clearly shown in these videos.
You may be wondering why I am singing the praises of this group witch promotes such hatred. I actually believe the Westboro Baptist Church is a Homosexual Performance Art Collective. Nobody can be this incredibly silly(except maybe the Master, Pat Robertson). It's a case of beating your enemy at his own game. This group of artists got together and obviously did some heavy research on hate groups of the world and came up with a model that cannot be beat. One day, hopefully they will reveal their act and put shame in the game of groups like MassResistance and Americans For Truth And Liberty Council. They started out like most artists with some DIY home demos which were criminally overlooked by the Entertainment Community. How can songs like, "Semper Fi, Semper Fags", "This Land Is Fag Land", and the moving tribute to another overlooked organization, The Coast Guard, "The Toast Guard" not be recognized as comedy classics? I chalk it up to bad distribution deals and jealousy of their Genius. I'm guessing they hail from Brooklyn, NY but moved their studios to Kansas for cred in the Religious Right Wing Wacko Establishment. Now they are jumpingass first into the world of Music Videos with this jocular and gay parody of the Lady Gaga hit, "Pokerface". All I have to say is, "Watch out Weird Al!" I urge the Recording Academy to make room for these virtuosos of Parody.
