I often engage in a sort of self-inflicted torture- reading the mainstream news. The articles are either pure propaganda-corporate or government- or mindless trivia meant to distract the masses. Skimming over the daily dose of pablum, I often notice the overt worship of power, wealth, the state and royalty displayed by the hired hacks of news conglomerates.
Hey, did you know that British punk bands of the 1970s had a designer? I didn’t either! But they did, according to an article recently posted by Agence France-Presse. titled ‘Punk fashion queen Westwood bows to Prince Charles.’ Vivienne Westwood ‘helped shape the look’ of punk bands by working closely with Malcolm McLaren and others. I always thought that punk music was anti-establishment and anarchistic , but now I find out that they had a fashion designer working to perfect their ‘look.’ Perhaps the whole movement was not as spontaneous and rebellious as I once thought? In any case, this former admirer of punk’s attitude toward royalty is now an unabashed boot-licker of the British royal family, gushing forth praise for Prince Charles in this insipid piece of ‘journalism.’ Perhaps we should not be surprised, as we are now supposed to refer to her as ‘Dame’ Vivienne Westwood. Sure.
“He’s such a visionary,” the fashion designer said. “Right back in the 1970s as a young man, he realized we have to live in harmony with the earth. And all his charities have made such a difference, they’ve really helped people, they’re very practical and solid things, they build communities, support people. We would have a wonderful world if he had ruled it all that time.”
Wow. Let that final statement sink in a bit.Not only does she act as PR mouthpiece for this ‘royal’ piece of garbage, idiotically extolling his goofy charities, she goes further, actually stating that she wishes Prince Charles were the emperor of the world. I wonder if she flashed a baphomet symbol while saying this. You can’t get much creepier than this: openly advocating for a lizard bloodline half-wit eugenicist to be world dictator. ‘Dame’ Westwood is saying it openly and proudly. How far we have fallen.
