Some Aesthetic Fascism for Your Weekend
(Joe Hargrave couldn’t be here, so this is his number one fan, Joepantsonfire, taking some time off from Catholic Fascist – that website created by that guy who hasn’t repeatedly lied about posting here under false identities - to bring you this)
Or shall I call it cultural imperialism? Oh how I long for the day when jack-booted enforcers roam the streets and corral people into compulsory attendance of Wagner operas!
Until that day, posts such as these will have to do.
1. Johann Strauss – Voices of Spring. I chose this because nothing thrills me more than the sounds associated with the gaiety of aristocratic oppression, except of course the tormented cries of those they oppress. And don’t let the black lady fool you; it’s not as if she wanted to do this. Various social and historical pressures caused her to identify with white European hegemonic musical forms. And that old Nazi Karajan was probably holding her family hostage in a basement somewhere.
2. Franz Schubert – Piano Trio in E Flat. I chose this particular video because we see the glorious proto-fascist Prussian military in the background. This piece was featured prominently in the Anglo-imperialist Stanley Kubrick’s film Barry Lyndon, a gloriously Eurocentric period film (I think I saw a black guy in there somewhere, but he was just a servant). Best viewed through your favorite monocle.
3. George Frederich Handel – Menuet in G Minor. The performer of this piece, Idil Biret, is Turkish. Therefore we will have to wait for final word on Turkey’s acceptance into the EU to decide whether or not she represents the hideous standards of degraded mud people, or perhaps the lesser end of a culturally superior civilization. Political allegiance determines truth, never forget!
I hope your fascist sensibilities are stated by this brief presentation. Heil and out!
