We can’t say we’re exactly surprised that Lady Gaga has overdosed on blue pill, critical race theory ideology, but it’s still dismally disappointing to see yet another influential celebrity buy into arguments that are as thin as they are dangerous. In a Billboard interview this week, the “Poker Face” singer said that she’s been on a mission to untangle the white supremacy that runs through her blood, courtesy of her skin and her upbringing in the United States of America.
“I am in the process of learning and unlearning things I’ve been taught my whole life,” she said. “When you’re born in this country, we all drink the poison that is white supremacy. Social justice is not just a literacy, it’s a lifestyle.”
Sometimes we wonder if these celebrities really believe it when they spout this nonsense, or if they’re just using it as a shield against cancel culture. Don’t get us wrong, it’s not hard to imagine that Lady Gage herself believes it, but we do wonder about some of the others. Are they really that brainwashed, or is it just like the business owners in Minneapolis and Kenosha who put signs that say “Black Lives Matter” in their windows: Talismanic ward-off words that say, “Hey, y’all, I’m down with the struggle, please don’t ruin my life!”
Unfortunately, when everyone is forced to mouth the words out of personal fear, it really is no different than if everyone actually believed it. The critical race theory nutjobs get their power either way.
Billboard asked Gaga what she thought about celebrities posting black squares in their social media profiles in support of Black Lives Matter.
“What do I think about a black square? I think everybody has a different feeling about a black square,” Gaga said. “Do I think there’s such a thing as performative activism? Yes. Do I think there’s been true activism that’s been very important and needed? Yes. Do I believe Black lives matter? Yes. Do I believe this is going to get louder? Yes. Do I believe it should? Yes.”
That’s a lot of self-questioning. Not sure if it amounted to a coherent thought, but maybe we’re asking for too much.
