Jared Taylor and his co-host marvel at Oxford University’s new music course that will explain how Mozart and Verdi were “complicit in white supremacy” and in “neoliberal systems of power.” The hosts also discuss the racial mix of abortions, mutterings from Musk, Governor Lisa Cook, and who gets top priority for baby formula.

  1. Mozart and Verdi were “complicit in white supremacy”

    How many people listen to Mozart and Verdi these days? Only elites do, and for status reasons.

    West has already been colonized by jungle music. Even European elites mostly listen to reggae and Afro-pop, and Rap is the #1 in the US.

    If anything, Rap has become globo-pop, pushing out the local music. Classical music never colonized the world like recent Pop in which blacks(and Jews) have huge influence.

    I listen to it often while I work. I’m hardly elite, though I see your point.

    A friend called late one afternoon and, upon hearing it asked if I was on a date. Pressed for why he thought so he explained that of course that stuff is only played in fancy restaurants.

    American boys are rarely exposed to classical music. I know of many Asian kids in America who are almost drilled in it.

    Mozart is kind of gay, though.

    Mozart is kind of gay, though.

    I take it you are referring to the current usage of gay, even though a great deal of his music meets the real definition. I’ve always seen Mozart as a child prodigy who never really grew up.
    As for the Asian kids, it’s not just ones in America. China and Japan have been promoting it for decades.

    European elites

    …it’s quite simple: any noise which in regular intervals makes “boom boom boom” (loudspeakers) or “tic tac tic tac tic tac” (earphones) is NOT music. It’s noise.

    People that listen to noise are not “elite”, whatever they or everyone else may think.

  5. Let music decide. I’m lucky in that I still have a visceral reaction to music I like, the hair on my arms stand up. The flip side is that I also liked counter-culture as a youngster, I listened to things like punk-rock and dodgy pop(who remembers 90’s industrial metal, and rave?), and I have a killer long term memory, I remember every bad note.. Bad taste is okay with me sometimes if it’s at least interesting bad taste.

  6. @Priss Factor

    Rap is a conspiracy, created, or at least forced on us, by non-black elites, for very clear and obvious political reasons.

  7. The insanity of these Cultural Marxists, truly knows no bounds. How some justify these views in their own feverish minds, must involve some incredible mental gymnastics, the nature of which, must and should, remain a mystery to most people.

    I know of many Asian kids in America who are almost drilled in it.

    Which is not due to any real appreciation of the music, but largely the result of overbearing Asian parents.
    East Asians are mostly into classical music because they think that it is a rough measurement of IQ. Their style of reasoning roughly goes like this: ‘The more classical music your child hears and plays, the smarter your child is and the smarter your child is, the better you are.’ The Asian way of looking at things closely links the overall value of a human life to productivity and cost-volume-profit analyses. This makes for very good workers (as long as you provide the factories with suicide nets), but also renders them emotionally sterile and uncreative, two things that perfectly describe such countries as China or Korea.

  9. @Dr. Charles Fhandrich

    …apparently not, for instance, to the first chancellor of Germany after WW2, Konrad Adenauer: “Ich bin ja mit dem lieben Gott soweit einverstanden, aber dass er der Klugheit Grenzen gesetzt hat und der Dummheit nicht, das nehme ich ihm wirklich übel // I’m agreeing quite well with God, but that he has imposed limits to wisdom and none to stupidity, this I really resent.”
