[Harp-L] Politics and Blues Harp

I am a born again Christian, politically conservative, blues fan.  There are
a lot of us.  We just don't talk about it.  There is a tendency among some
in the performing arts to adopt the attitudes of and inject into their
performances whatever they perceive to be the current political/social
zeitgeist.  That is a terrible mistake.  While nobody begrudges a performer
their honest expression of their views on any subject through their art, the
self-serving agenda of many performers is obvious and that degrades the art.
I flee political correctness, especially the self-serving genre, and will
not pay good money to support performers who inject it into what is supposed
to be entertainment.  I am a social and political conservative and my money
tends to follow my beliefs.  While I never inquire into the politics of any
performer, the first time they force PC or liberal orthodoxy upon me in a
performance, I walk, if need be in the middle of the performance, and never
support them again.
