The 10 Most Leftist Albums Ever Made
David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | October 27, 2010 | James Miles and David Swindle

Posted on 10/28/2010 2:12:18 PM PDT by HorowitzianConservative

What albums might Leon Trotsky have done some head-banging to if Josef Stalin hadn't sent an assassin to shove an icepick through his skull?

Answer: the 10 Neo-Communist (and some flat-out communist) titles on our list. We count them down from the more benign Democrat-supporters to outright totalitarian radicals.

Included in this collection are alternative, rock, rap, folk, and hip-hop titles. We've also done our best not to be too obvious with our choices -- you won't find Greenday's "American Idiot" on this list, for example. We also made the choice to select albums that despite being nauseating in their politics can actually be enjoyable to listen to -- hence the decision to include a video with each. That's your cookie for having to endure the next ten pages of anti-Americanism as we expose some of music's most politicized albums.

10."Hail to the Thief" by Radiohead

It's not the peaceful hippie tunes of the '60s. Now today's neo-communist alternative rock reflects the nihilism of the modern Left.

Well. I must say, album #1 doesn’t seem so bad.

“F— the Brady bill

Sam Colt made him equal”

I thought I read that Nas had a song that was anti-abortion.

...the driving force of the Left is not stupidity but malevolence.

Good observation.

“Witchcraft Destroys Minds & Reaps Souls” by Coven, should please our anti-social conservatives.

Nice to see I was never a fan of any of those groups, although I liked a few early Neil Young songs in my youth (got the 8-track I inherited from my mom around here somewhere).

For all of the “Rock against Reagan” and subsquent “Rock against Bush” movements, I don’t recall any “Rock FOR Carter” action or albums.

Jello is leftist, but the fun thing is he has no problem sticking it to Democrats too, or really anyone who pisses him off. California Ueber Alles was written for Jerry Brown, casting him as a Hitler who would use his secret police to enforce his brand of hippie fascism. The cover was of a Nazi rally with smiley faces over the swastika banners, and Brown in place of Hitler.
