More synchronicity, re Bob Dylan
This afternoon, I posted “He Belongs to Us: The relevance of Bob Dylan to traditionalists.” A couple of hours later, Brad C. wrote:
And of course, synchronicity kicks in at VFR as Dylan received the Presidential Medal of Freedom award at the White House today.Which I knew nothing about until Brad told me.
Of course I don’t give a hang about the Presidential Medal of Freedom, especially after Dubya reduced it to the equivalent of a retirement watch for George (“Slam Dunk!”) Tenet and others of his pals, and it’s been handed out to all kinds of semi-worthless people since then. For example, along with Dylan, another recipient today is the hugely overrated, anti-white novelist Tony Morrison. Further, the idea of a countercultural figure like Dylan getting official awards from the establishment is an absurdity. It makes the recipient absurd, and it makes the establishment absurd.
Finally, the fact that leftist, anti-white, anti-American president of the U.S. thinks highly of Dylan does not change the reasons I said he is relevant to traditionalists. The liberals have their Dylan; we have ours.
Brilliant observation:LA replies:
From another photo I saw in today’s paper, I don’t think that they were question marks, but some kind of odd buttons.LA to Richard B.:
Thanks for sending that, because I had missed my typo of writing “House House” instead of “White House.”Richard B. replies:
I missed it too! I was too taken with the “question mark suit.” Was it a Dylan statement?LA replies:
That’s what I thought, but, from another photo I’ve seen, I’m no longer sure that those things on his jacket are question marks. I guess I was reading that into it.
