Malaysia gags Lady Gaga, garbles gay lyrics
Associated Press ^ | Mar 17, 2011 3:09 AM (ET) | SEAN YOONG

Posted on 03/17/2011 5:11:06 AM PDT by DJ MacWoW

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) - Malaysian radio stations worry some lyrics in Lady Gaga's gay anthem "Born This Way" are on the wrong track, baby.

Broadcasters in this Muslim-majority nation have refused to play lines in the hit song that encourage public acceptance of gays, claiming Thursday they are being cautious because the government forbids offensive

content.

Malaysians who tune in to popular stations hear edited versions of "Born This Way" that use indecipherable garble to replace the lyrics: "No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I'm on the right track, baby."

Very, very pro-gay and almost 20 million views.

Her popularity and influence is scary.

I know zero about Lady Gaga, but KL, Malaysia has a really good pop music station that streams online.

http://www.litefm.com.my/inc/app/shared/dvrplayer/capsules/capsule_lite.asp

I stream many of the talkers, as well as music.

I’ve heard the song—which is a complete ripoff of a Madonna song (Express Yourself?), it sounds so familiar—but I didn’t even realize what she was singing about.

I can’t say I disagree with their point of view. I’m so tired of all the sexuality in today’s music. And so are my children. I was driving with my 11 year-old daughter and there was a song that came on, something about, “I’m not going to do anything today.” Basically, he was going to lie down on the couch and just veg out, so to speak.

I was laughing, so was my daughter, and she said, “I like this song because it’s not about.... you know...dates and stuff.” I told her, I feel exactly the same way.

Pro homo, is she also pro animal, pro lots of wives too or just bigoted and selective towards other kinds of love.

Lyrics:

It doesn’t matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M
Just put your paws up
‘Cause you were born this way, baby

Verse:
My mama told me when I was young
We are all born superstars
She pulled my hand and put my lipstick on
In the glass of her boudoir
“There’s nothin wrong with lovin who you are”
She said, “’cause he made you perfect, babe”
“So hold your head up girl and you’ll go far,
Listen to me when I say”

Chorus:
I’m beautiful in my way
‘Cause God makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way
Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you’re set
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

Post-chorus:
Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way
Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby, I was born this way
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

Don’t be a drag - just be a queen
Don’t be a drag - just be a queen
Don’t be a drag - just be a queen
Don’t be!

Verse:
Give yourself prudence
And love your friends
Subway kid, rejoice your truth
In the religion of the insecure
I must be myself, respect my youth
A different lover is not a sin
Believe capital H-I-M (hey hey hey)
I love my life I love this record and
Mi amore vole fe yah (love needs faith)

Repeat chorus + post-chorus

Bridge:
Don’t be a drag, just be a queen
Whether you’re broke or evergreen
You’re black, white, beige, chola descent
You’re lebanese, you’re orient
Whether life’s disabilities
Left you outcast, bullied, or teased
Rejoice and love yourself today
‘Cause baby you were born this way
No matter gay, straight, or bi,
Lesbian, transgendered life
I’m on the right track baby
I was born to survive
No matter black, white or beige
Chola or orient made
I’m on the right track baby
I was born to be brave

Repeat chorus + post-chorus

Outro/refrain:
I was born this way hey!
I was born this way hey!
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way hey!

I was born this way hey!
I was born this way hey!
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way hey!

and there in lies the problem in the west.

The communist knew that to destroy the west they had to destroy the moral compass and the traditional family.
For decades they worked on that and now we have the likes of this , well woman harping on.

Every parent needs to sit down with their kids and talk to them every day about the morals and how the likes of lady ga ga are trying to influence them.

Letting the media raise their children like many do only brings into this world more loony liberals and people who are screwed up.

I think it only appears that way because the libs have control of the media. But they're working on it.

I’m so tired of all the sexuality in today’s music.

I was thinking that too, then Joan Jet's "Do you Wanna Touch Me" came on, and that's a cover of an early 70s song.

as a parents with 3 young kids I make it a point to sit down wit them every night and talk over dinner.
School, what they were taught or told, to politics to every day events.

It amazes me how many parents have no clue about he basics of their kids lives.
I’ll ask a parent about what their kid is now being taught at school and they say they have no clue, I’ll ask another parent do you find the homework too much and they reply” I’ve never seen him do it”

When I ask them about what they kids watch on TV they say , I leave it up to them as they have their own TV and computer in their room.

One of my kids asked me can they have their own TV in teir bedroom and I explained no because I would like them to spend time with us and watch TV too because we love them and we love to see them and spend time with them.

You know what, they understand that and know they will never get a TV or computer in their room and they’re fine with it because they know we don’t wan them locked in their room doing what ever.

The parents who are the worst are the ones you see trying to talk to a 3 year old when the kid is having a temper tantrum in a shop and throwing things or the parents who say “well kids need to find themselves and let them explore”

No as parents we guide our children to be good responsible respecting adults, to be good fathers and wives, mothers and fathers and to add to their country.
Letting a boy play with barbie, polish their nails and dress as a goth is going to mess the kid up and it does

When my kids were growing up we had one TV and it was in the LR. Computer was also in the LR. And we had family dinner every night at the table. Families lives are now fragmented. Food commercials have to tell parents to have a family dinner one night a week.

Why do people feel they are "enlightened" as a society when they allow this garbage? When we allow immorality free reign we invite a decadent society. This isn't free speech. It's a call to be immoral wrapped up in "pretty" music. It's portrayed as "hip" when it's really scum rising to the surface. And we allow it. Does ANYONE actually believe that the Founding Fathers would have applied the First Amendment to this? Washington discouraged the use of profanity in the army. Why are we allowing trash in the name of "freedom"? Society and our children will be exactly what we allow them to be. Is this womans trash really what freedom looks like? Is this how "freedom" is to be portrayed? Anything goes?

Quite a few people believe that it is freedom and enlightenment to allow people like Lady Gaga to spew her darkness and deviancy. What say you? Is this what "freedom" looks like? Is this the "freedom" that the Founding Fathers risked everything for? What would they say about this kind of "entertainment"?

Look for 0h0m0llah to impose sanctions on Malaysia.

OTOH, Malaysia is Islamic, are they not?

What to do? Impose sanctions on broadcasters and send Malaysia $100 million to build a grand mosque.

Problem solved.

She's glorifying and encouraging immorality. Would the Founding Fathers have allowed her to do so in the public town square?

Colonial American Crime and Punishment

Sodomy and buggery carried the death penalty and several cases exist where courts executed convicted felons. Historian David Hawke quotes William Bradford, commenting on a celebrated case of buggery in which a male teenager confessed to having had sexual relations with animals. University of Chicago historian John D’Emilio includes the case in his history on sexuality in America as an example of the strict legal precepts used in Puritan New England to enforce acceptable sexual practices.

Sounds as if simply saying "No" to glorification of deviancy would be lenient. Liberals have brainwashed people into believing it's "enlightenment". It isn't. It's peddling darkness and destroying society.
