Y’all probably remember this video I posted a few weeks ago of Katy Perry’s “Part of Me”;
Well, according to the Military Times, Naomi Wolf didn’t like it calling the video “shameful” and accusing Perry of being a paid shill for the Marines.
Naomi Wolf, you may remember will go down in history as the chick who made Al Gore wear earth tone suits to help him win his election in 2000. Y’all remember President Al Gore, right? The color of his suits were his only problem.
Now, I always thought that Naomi Wolf was totally do-able, but, inevitably, she’d have to start talking which would kill the mood. But, anyway, the video doesn’t show anything from war, it only shows training, but that doesn’t stop Wolf from claiming that the video glorifies and “prettifies” violence;
Like Matthis, she knows all about war because she talked to people who had been in war. I’m sure that gives her some sort moral authority in her mind, but, she might as well said that her neighbor’s cousin’s father had been in war, so she knows what she’s talking about. And I’m sure she thinks that she caught the PTSD from her interviewees.
Personally, I thought the video would scare away people who thought that military service is all glory and parades. If you’ve seen the video, you know it shows all of the tough stuff about training and none of the glory. There is nothing glorious or pretty about log PT on the beach.
In my humble and carefully considered opinion, Wolf is just joining in the chorus of voices from the Left who never really supported the troops, they only mouthed the necessary words that were socially approved, probably by some central committee in charge of Liberal talking points. Now, that the wars are winding down, those same pretend Americans feel that it’s relatively safe to push back against anything that portrays the troops and military service in a positive light.
Wolf says that we should boycott Perry, so I immediately went to Amazon and downloaded Perry’s album. What? That’s not what boycott means?
