Madonna booed in New Orleans over endorsement of Obama is reject Hollywood liberalism
Written by 

madonna-obamaLast Saturday night in New Orleans, pop superstar Madonna entertained her audience by performing her many hits. It was undoubtedly a stellar performance for Madonna has been a major star for decades. Unfortunately, in the midst of the concert, she decided to engage in political talk with her audience.   

 

 

In recent months, Madonna has been very vocal about her support for Barack Obama. In fact, she has written the President’s name on various parts of her body and is not be bashful about showing it to her fans. Not surprisingly, she promises to strip completely naked if the President wins re-election.  

This type of strip politics may play well in New York or London, but it was not very popular at the New Orleans Arena.  After telling the crowd, “I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama” she was greeted with a chorus of boos and some of the audience actually left the arena.  

This negative response must have surprised the singer, who is usually praised for her liberal political views. She is certainly not alone in the entertainment community. Last week, the current Queen of pop music Katy Perry wore a dress emblazoned with Barack Obama lettering. The star of the successful musical group Black Eyed Peas, Will-I-am, regularly performs at Obama fundraisers. These music stars are joined by many of the top movie stars in supporting the re-election of President Obama.  

In the past four years, the President has attended numerous Hollywood fundraisers and has raised millions of dollars from this community alone. Nonetheless, these stars do pay a price for their political involvement. Madonna and her Hollywood friends lose credibility every time they venture into politics and they alienate about half of the country in the process.  

A must better idea would be for Madonna, Katy Perry and the other Obama lovers to just shut up and sing. At the New Orleans Arena, patrons paid good money to hear Madonna sing, not engage in electioneering for Barack Obama. According to one upset fan, Nick Nunez, Madonna “shouldn't push her political agenda when we're paying money to hear her music." 

Madonna has a responsibility to deliver what her fans paid to see, not surprise them by encouraging a vote for Obama, who, by the way, is not very popular in the state of Louisiana.  

After being subjected to all of this activism, it might be time for the millions of conservatives in this country to boycott these outspoken liberal artists and hit them where it hurts, in the bank account.  

Without conservative fans, Madonna would not be as wealthy, and she would not sell as many seats at her concert. If they are hurt financially, maybe Madonna and her ill-informed friends would think twice about lecturing their fellow Americans about politics, not exactly their area of expertise.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
