Bieber and the Black President: Cultural Pathology and North American Decay

Unlike certain demographics who are addicted to pop culture and celebrity gossip, I have never taken any interest in the lives of vapid and entitled celebrities. Stories regarding whom some Kardashian bimbo decides to date or marry are as appealing to me as steak is to a vegetarian. Unfortunately, some celebrity misbehavior is just so flagrant or ill-timed that news about their antics extends beyond the confines of gossip sites. For those of you not in the know, Canadian (he’s Dota’s cross to bear, haha) celebrity Justin Bieber’s recent misbehavior, including driving under the influence and resisting arrest, has galvanized the American masses into taking action. A petition on the White House website calling for president Obama to deport Justin Bieber has received 103,000 signatures, which exceeded the minimum 100,000 signatures necessary to command the president’s attention. Can’t a brotha catch a break? Our upstanding, beleaguered black president already has too much on his hands to deal with a petulant celebrity. The very fact that this is even made national news is indicative of how much of a bad joke our society has become, but more on that later. The rhetoric and reasoning behind the petition is most curious and is worth, pardon the word, deconstructing:

“We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture,”

You’re joking, right? If the petition is actually asserting that this misrepresentation is primarily the fault of Bieber, then where have they been? I could name various other pathological trends in culture before the name Justin Bieber even emerged. Let’s see, Jersey Shore, 50 Shades of Grey, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, and the list goes on. If they’re truly interested in reversing pernicious cultural trends, they should have been doing their job a lot earlier. They elaborate on their disgust:

“We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive and drug-abusing Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nation’s youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society.”

I find this quote fascinating because it reflects a certain defeatism. It’s as if they’re conceding that American culture is irredeemably debased and sick, unable to resist the influence of one recalcitrant and hedonistic Canadian import. Since the American people as a whole aren’t willing to do what it takes to dispose of cultural garbage, they instead resort to asking the commander-in-chief to deport one childish, talentless singer. The way I see it, culture is a reflection of society as a whole. American pop culture is vapid garbage precisely because the U.S. has become increasingly decadent. Getting rid of a Justin Bieber or two isn’t going to undo the fundamental rot that plagues American society. What could actually undo this fundamental rot? Short of turning the West into some kind of alternative right utopian fantasy, I can’t currently say. As much as I would love to deport Justin and his legions of “beliebers,” they would only be replaced by another toxic pop culture trend.

I recognize that every generation has complained about the state of culture, the amoral proclivities of young people, as well as various other ills. But the current addiction to social media and celebrity gossip seems endemic to this time, and an indication of our society’s terminal decline. The fact that the leader of the world’s most powerful nation (for now) is being asked to serve as a glorified hall monitor and deal with a misbehaving kid like Bieber is embarrassing. Reminds me of George Carlin’s quote: “when you’re born you get a ticket to the freak show. When you’re born in America, you get a front row seat.”

Well, I don’t you about you, but I’ve had it with receiving tickets to a freak show. The freaks will always remain with us, but there are steps we can take to reduce their number, or at least their influence. The best thing you can possibly do is starve the bratty beast. There are other simple ways to escape the boredom of daily middle class life than vicariously living through narcissistic celebrities. Read a serious book, watch a thought provoking film, go out and bar hop, shit, even play video games. But please, do not voraciously consume mainstream pop culture or act as enablers for the degradation of our civilization.

We need fewer beliebers and more believers in Western civilization. Perhaps one day our heritage will even get to enjoy its own gossip rag.

    fuck Justina Beiber. I want to see that hermaphrodite deported back to Canada now. Let the Canadians deal with him, since Canada and France is where all the flamboyant genderqueer types of pussies go. Let Canadians take this guy back, none of us want him or care about him.

      Doing anything (like deportation) would just keep thins dumb story going. Everyone but middle school girls lost interest weeks ago. Don’t re-open the worms.

      • coward says:

        Send him back to Canada!

      • WmarkW says:

        I understand, Coward, that we have different persapectives on Justin Bieber. To me, he’s just someone who pops up in my internet news feeeds 100 times as often as I want to read about him. You’re ~13 years old? So you can’ t really escape hearing about him from half your peer group.

        Iwouldn’t necessarily recommend dealing with him the way Ignored/avoided Donny Osmond and Bobby Sherman. I never learned good heterosexual social skills until college, and by that time all the other guys were way ahead of me.

      • coward says:

        Im 14 now. School sucks, Im in a niggerized school filled with disgusting niggers with flat faces snd flat noses. So disgusting to not be around your own race

      • Lee Min Ho says:

        “Is Kesha then?”
        ??? I meant is Kesha BAD then? I see she as better than Justin Bieber though. By the way I still study Korean, but I dropped the idea of Portuguese, I think Brazil is a shithole and don’t deserve it.

    • guerrer0 says:

      Is Kesha then? I myself am fan of Kesha while I am indifferent to many other singers, she is pretty but so is Katy Perry, then she is crazy but so is Miley Cyrus, I really like some of her songs too, is a matter of having a soft spot for someone, today I decided to study Portuguese and Korean so now I can listen properly to music in those languages and I have had a soft spot and real obsession for the Korean girl group Girl Generation.

    I think that Girls Generation neither is bad or decadent.

    Bloggers, I asked at Heartiste with my other account how much the plastic surgery could reverse the effects of aging, you can in the future your thoughs about it, I am positive science could advance enough to reverse it enough in a not very distant future maybe.

    Despite the complaining, people love this drama. Or rather I should say women, since the consumers of celebrity gossip mags and TV shows like TMZ I’m sure are overwhelmingly women(and gay men). Most people live extremely routine, boring lives and this stuff gives them excitement in their banal existence. Bieber probably should be deported. We must admit, if that was some recent, poor immigrant from Mexico behaving the same way, his green card would be revoked, most likely. Then again I’m not even sure about that.

    • coward says:

      I do NOT love this drama but I am a teenager. I want to hear REAL news, but everytime I turn on the TV to learn what is happening worldwide, I have to sit through 7 minutes of celebrity talk for 2 minutes of politics. Fuck that!
