The accusation of sedition is a serious one. It is not to be taken lightly or without being unaware of the consequences of what is being said.
Back in 1918, the Sedition act of 1918 was enshrined as law. In a nutshell, it is described as follows:
“Willfully utter, print, write, or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the form of the Government of the United States”
I think most Americans would say that the so-called “protest” (aka riot) that happened on Wednesday afternoon is more than enough to strongly consider the allegation of sedition. Not just for you know who, but for his enablers, and those who stormed into the Capitol building hoping to overturn the results of the election.
Randy Rainbow release his new video this afternoon. Entitled “SEDITION! – A Randy Rainbow Parody“, it is a take-off on the song “Tradition” from the musical Fiddler on the Roof.
I have said many times that Rainbow is a genius. This time, I have no choice but to get on my figurative knees and bow down to this man. After the chaos and destruction, it is clear that changes must be made. It is also clear that we cannot just sweep what has happened under the rug. We need to face it head-on, take a good look in the mirror, and learn from our mistakes.
P.S. If there is one bright spot, it is that you know who has been permanently banned from Twitter.
The art of magic can be summoned in one word: distraction. The magician has the audience looking at their right hand. The card which is supposed to come out of nowhere is hidden in their left hand.
This has been the tactic of the current Presidential administration since day one. The most recent distraction can only be described as Obamagate.
Randy Rainbow’s latest video is entitled “DISTRACTION! – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody“. Based on the song Tradition from the musical Fiddler on the Roof, the song perfectly mocks how you know who is trying to hide from the fact that he let Covid-19 into the United States.
A President’s performance is measured by more than the general metrics from their time in office. They are measured by how they handled the day to day tasks. I would say (and I suspect that many others feel the same way), that this President has failed and deserves to be voted out in November.
Tradition is a wonderful thing. It binds us to the past and to those who are no longer with us. But that does mean that we can have some fun with tradition.
Hava Nagila is a song that within the first few notes, the listener knows the song and the people who are connected with it. I’ve known this song since I was a child. While I love the traditional Hava Nagila, it’s nice to hear a more modern take on this song.
For many, this is the traditional Hava Nagila.
I like this adaptation because while it keeps to the origins of the song, it speak to the modern audience.
Now this is a fun Hava Nagila. It adds a pop flair while integrating latin dance feel to the song many grew up with.
To me, religion and tradition can still live on. It’s just a matter of realizing that sometimes a new angle can keep it going.
