So conservatives are not supposed to be fans of rock music? I guess I don’t get your point.
Not bad rock music.
Sam Sham, of this he mentioned are legit.
But, it is not about being a fan of rock music or not. It’s about buying in to and accepting, still to this day, the liberal ethos that was generated at that time.
No one with a brain should worship at the altar of the 60’s hippie scene
The music wasn’t that good and the self mythologizing was and is over the top.
He’s an old man now and should give up his rosy eyed view of the 60s.
When I was young I liked rock more than I do now (I’m younger than the writer), but over time we grow up and find out there are so many things better.
He’s another of the many whiners on FR that enjoy blaming everything wrong with the world on those old, liberal burned out Boomers. What none of these mental midgets get is that they have been sold a Hollywood view of Boomers. In fact most Boomers are just hard working people who went to work out of HS or attended college by working in the summer and taking out loans. Some sent to Nam, some didn’t come home, some that did were changed forever. We got married, most had kids, we worked our butts off to do the best we could to raise our now ungrateful children, who see us as nothing more than free babysitters or a free basement to live in because they dont want be job locked. Most of us never toked a doobie, dropped acid, or lived in a commune. I turned 18 in 1969 and didn’t even hear of Woodstock until the movie came out. As we group we couldn’t wait to get away from home, grow up and live our own live. Unlike the Xers and Millenials who don’t seem to ever want to leave home or grow up.
It gets tiring, but if it makes them feel good that’s fine. As the largest demographic generation in history we have blamed for everything good and bad that has happened for the last 60 years. I have heard from those in my own family. They can’t wait until we are all gone so they can fix the world. Thankfully I won’t be here to see the train wreck that will become.
