Contributor Post Created with Sketch. ACF PoMoCon #17: Defend the Statues

 

Friends, today is a special UK edition of the podcast. British expat journalist Ben Sixsmith joins me to speak in defense of the statues now threatened in Britain, from Churchill on down. Churchill’s own blood apparently won’t! Somebody should, though, and apparently it’s those of us looking from afar. So we also attack the Tory elites that won’t defend the nation’s honor in its symbols, either in deed or speech. We damn the corporate-manager politicians who do not wield authority and do not seem to know their offices have dignity and importance. Where is Boris Johnson in this moment of national shame?

You can find Ben’s most recent pieces here: The Spectator, on the riots ending the lockdown rhetoric.

The Critic–don’t bet on the silent majority if you don’t speak up for it. Also: Remember the Baader-Meinhof Gang.

    The witch hunt continues. And now they want to change Penny Lane:

    Wasn’t there a movie just last year about how resurrecting the Beatles music is all you need? It was very multicultural, too–I think the protagonist was Indian.

    I guess, nice try…
