George W. Bush against Madonna
Friday, 30 May 2008 13:22
by Roland Michel Tremblay

Who is Madonna? Oh, just the most influential artist this planet has ever seen. She is sort of American, with Italian and French-Canadian parents, but there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that she is the embodiment of America, the coming of age of the American Dream.

Who is George W. Bush? Oh dear, where should I begin? George W. Bush is at least four generations of political corruption and everything that gives this planet a bad name. George W. Bush and his ancestors, are what ultimately makes humanity not worth existing. Let’s just pull the plug on humanity and annihilate it all whilst there is still time, before we annihilate the rest of the universe with it. That is George W. Bush.

George W. Bush is such a bad man, his reign that lasted a decade, has inspired every single artist on this planet to write their best work yet. Creative minds were bored out of their mind for so long, and suddenly they had a reason to live, a reason to exist, something to denounce, something to write about: George W. Bush and his radical policies upon the world.

It came at a cost though. Many of those artists were discredited, shamed, judged unpatriotic, not worth being Americans anymore. George W. Bush was successful in destroying Madonna. And she backed off, she stopped herself in her mission, she swore to never again intermingled with things she should not have. Should she not have talk about politics?

I beg to differ. If Madonna is to back off, if Madonna, the whole embodiment of America, the whole embodiment of the American Dream, has to be shut off, well, who then will stop George W. Bush in his ascension to ultimate corruption and dictatorship over the whole world? If we had to vote for a new President of America right now, between George W. Bush and Madonna, who would you vote for? Madonna! There is absolutely no doubt in anyone’s mind about this, now at least.

So, if George W. Bush’s policies are so unpopular, that they have created such a rush of inspiration in all our most respectful artists, we should certainly listen to them, appreciate it, understand how and why this state of affair came to be in the first place.

After all, Madonna, in 25 years, never felt the need to become political, and yet, now she feels it is essential, in order to safeguard what America is all about, what we all think it is all about, which no longer is.

Madonna is, after all, America. She is who we all aspire to be, every single one of us. This is the definition of what capitalism truly means. Succeeding beyond belief, becoming filthy rich, and then, exercising some sort of influence on culture, on everything we are all about as a whole. Yes, this is all meaningless, and even Madonna figured that one out. Which shows, yet again, how wise she truly is.

How dare you turn against her as soon as she speaks her mind? She is us, she is who we are, she made us, she made us who we are, because she is a product of who we are and what we believe in. Now that all that is threatened, and that our only symbol and model decided to speak up, we shut her down.

Well, this is just not acceptable. I will more readily accept any idea or political agenda coming out from Madonna than from George W. Bush. I will more readily worship Madonna as my God, than I would the Bush family or any other American President. So I propose to go back in time, and fully appreciate the album American Life and its Director’s Uncut video on youtube, and celebrate it the way it should have been celebrated then. As the most significant piece of art which is required in such dark times.

Madonna has proven that she is more than just emptiness and “I love you baby” songs. Madonna is a force of nature. Madonna can guide us all to freedom and to the real American Dream. She is our last hope to happiness. I will trust Madonna any day, over the likes of George W. Bush, to govern the affairs of America and of the entire world. I will fight for it, I am fighting for it right now.

Madonna has an opinion, which reaches the masses, which becomes our opinion, because we think the same, we embrace her, we embrace it all, because in our mind we know she is right. You could not hope for better artists to represent a national identity, people who truly believe in something and will sacrifice everything in order to insure that it remains what it is. A national identity of freedom and privacy, the liberty to do whatever one wishes to achieve with his or her own life. And the choice, the chance to decide, what goes on and what should not in the world.

I totally agree with and entirely trust Madonna. I am ashamed by how we shut her down and prevented her from speaking out the way she was meant to with American Life. She is the American way of life, she is the very definition of what we are all about. The day she decided to speak, we annihilated her, and we should not have. We will live to regret it.

If it comes to a decision between who should rule us, between George W. Bush and Madonna, I will vote for Madonna any day. People like Madonna are our last hope, because no one else can reach so instantly the whole world simply by speaking so softly or so harshly about anything this world so desperately needs to hear about.

Instantly, when someone like Madonna, speak up, it makes a difference, it changes everything, it changes the overall frame of mind of humanity. I do not know of anyone else who is that powerful. That kind of power is so important nowadays, it should be embraced. And so, we should listen to Madonna, respect her, encourage her, act upon what she says, because we all know her heart is at the right place, over the heart of people like George W. Bush, who we all know, is but pure evil and psychopathic in nature.

Tonight, and tomorrow, and the following days, I am listening to Madonna. Because I feel she is worth listening to. She means something to me that none of you were able to awake within me. A desire to be alive, to be free, to exist and to be the master of my own destiny.

Madonna means absolute freedom, happiness, the whole of what the American Dream is all about, what America should all be about. Long live Madonna and her freedom of speech! Let her express herself, because she has something to say that we all desperately need to hear.

That is who Madonna truly is, America. And if America decides to shut her up, then yes, she should become the Queen of the United Kingdom. We will certainly embrace her without condition, because over here, the people at least, truly believe, deep down, in everything that Madonna represents. We believe in absolute freedom.

Madonna is now ours, she is now British. If you want her back, then prove that you deserve her, fight for it! She is, after all, only what you are, or what you used to be: absolute freedom to accomplish any kind of great destiny. That is what Madonna is all about, and it cannot be but deeply respected.

Madonna is perhaps the most influential artist in the world right now. Let’s listen to her, because I believe she has something important to say, and we are in desperate need right now to hear all about it. And this time around, no one should stand in her way.

This is what freedom of speech really means, just in case you forgot, and dear me, for your own sake and the sake of us all, never should you forget about it again. Madonna was right a long time ago: express yourself! In any mean you can. Express yourself and make a difference!

I couldn't agree more. Bravo to you.

She is immense and proof that you can live the dream and why oh why should anyone lie down and take anything. She has dared to shock and surprise us at every aspect of her career, we fear her treatment and ostracision thereafter only for the cold dish of revenge to be served by time and we are all left marvelling at the groundbreaking and gaining being done before us.

Long live Madonna. Nobody can replace you

Agreed.
I couldn't agree more. For American Life she had no other choice but shut down with her videoclip because the government had other plans with her family then. If they would have shut it, maybe people would have listened earlier on. She is freedom indeed. But even though some might think she's closer to the Jewish side because of her faith, you're wrong, she said she wanted to help and make a documentary in Pakistan and other places in the Middle East. She's exactly what we need even though most won't agree as theyre either ignorant or hide it. (or stupid)

I also wanted to say how glad I am that for once a good article is being posted instead of talk about Madonna in a superficial way that really doesn't matter anyway. Thank you so much for this.

finally! the RIGHT perspective
hi, my name is Jason Dottley and I'm starring as Ty in Sordid Lives: The Series (coming to Canada, the UK, Isreal and USA). I am 27 and Madonna is my idol. I even flew to Tokyo to see her close her Confessions Tour because after seeing her so many times in America, I knew she would be better performing in another country, one which loves her!!!!!! Americans are so lame. It's not "cool" to like Madonna here. Thank god I don't care what's "cool"... I bet I owe that to Madonna!
Please look me up, visit my site www.jasondottley.com and watch my show which stars myself, Olivia Newton-John, Rue McClanahan and Caroline Rhea. I play a character who is obsessed with Madonna. How ironic?!
I loved this article. Amen!

How to Be a Ho & Loved, Too!
Hmm, what are the issues you believe Madonna addresses? Sex, status, money, being popular and cool are the only issues I get from her, and if anything, she is usually a minimum of 6 months behind the curve. (To be fair, I live in NYC and know how easy it was for her to rip off the artists who never made a penny off the material girl. Madonna is only radical for people who have never really lived a radical life.

I checked out the Americal Life video and, while it may have been a big deal 4 years ago, I cannot understand why you are so worked up about her & Bush.
When was it that Bush attacked Madonna? I just tried a google search but didn't see anything specific, so it mystifies me as to why a web site I respect would publish such fluff.

You say you are an anarchist, but I suspect you are really a hedonist. Anarchy is about interdependence and responsibility, not flaunting booty and bling. No one can be free while putting others down, nor while worshipping them. Your adoration of Ms. Thing is preposterous in light of your alleged ideology.

"What it seems to me" is that you should spend some time living with indigenous people for a while. These so-called American values you & Madonna promote are illusions and bound to brind you down. Stop lusting for someone else's fabulousness and develop your own. That's radical AND anarchistic.

As for her teasing display of blowing up rich people, check out the film, "The Discrete Charm of the Bourgeoisie" (1972) by Luis Bunuel or Antonioni's "Blow Up" (1966) for a bit more substance.

Good luck with your life.

I wholeheartedly agree with you. I would definitely trust Madonna to turn this country around. She represents good, not evil. Thank you for a fascinating article.

Great Passionate Article
Madonna didn't "censor" herself because she really wanted to - her family received death threats during the American Life era. She has more than herself to think about this time. In any case, I really loved the passion of your article. Good job!

Do you people live in a bubble?
This is absolutely stupid. Madonna does what Madge wants. She wants to make money before ANY value.

Period.

This article is ignorant to the facts.

Madonna's American Life CD came out in 2003.... did it take you this long to think this article up?

I love Madonna but this makes you sound insane.
Madonna is an entertainer.
She is not God.
