The perfect theme song for the QAnon and Cult of Trumpism

From Children of the Corn. :twisted:

Not exactly a song, but i feel like every bit of this dialogue from Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones would come out of Donald Trump's mouth (if he was able to talk with more sophistication). Even down to the part of Trump fiercely protecting his family like a father lion king watching over his pride.

This bard song "Age of Aggression" from Skyrim.

https://youtu.be/JP8uPtYORkA


Only MY version of the lyrics would go like this. :D

We drink to our youth
For the days come and gone
For the Age of Stupidity is just about done
We'll drive out the MAGAs and restore what we own
With our blood and our guns we will take back our home

Down with Trump, the wannabe king.
On the day of your death we will drink and we'll sing.
We're the kids of America and we fight all our lives
And where true freedom beckons everyone of us dies

But this country is ours and we'll see it wiped cleaned.
Of the scourge that has sullied our hope and our dreams.

And more Rider:

Once Human / Machine Head collab talking (more accurately growling) politics, economics, and systemic inequality.

The most appropriate GoT song for describing how cutthroat politicians and world leaders are with each other.

This song from the video game Granblue Fantasy makes me think of Marie Antoinette and her love for roses. :queen:

https://youtu.be/VuyKUsplBoc


English Translation:

At the corner of this world
The bells of war won't stop ringing;
Its sound echoing all over the lands,
Drowning out the faraway crying voices

The "blaze" that father gave us
The so-called "happiness" mother gave us
It was all but a lie
What was actually behind the truth
Was despair

Oh bless me, with overflowing power
To this awakened impulse
As I whispered such hope to myself
On this thorny path i traverse without knowing
How long does it continue?
I began to search
For the "Queen's Rose"

A world without a single blooming flower
As if painted in a gray-like color
That time when my eyes were opened
The colors were beautiful and fleeting
The "praise" which people offered up
Were in reality unheard lamentations
Slashing away the silence
That blade; how many times will it be swung down?
It won't stop!

Once upon a time, there existed the "Queen's Rose"
That bloomed proudly in this world
Oh bless me, with overflowing power
To this awakened impulse
As I whispered such hope to myself
On this thorny path that I finally understand
At the end of it
I've found it
The "Queen's Rose"!

Dusting off these classics, the Jib Jab videos from 2005

Also another classic that can describe pretty much every lying president since LBJ with all of our conflicts.

Five guys named "Ted Cruz"!


https://youtu.be/8EaUqLrfEMU

Amazing how the same one state of Texas has at least three senators with the same name.

There is the Ted Cruz who was furious at Trump because Trump inplicated Cruz's dad in killing JFK, and because Trump insulted his wife, and who also called Trump a "grifter".

Then there was that other guy named Ted Cruz who was religiously devoted to supporting Trump, and denied everything the first Ted Cruz said above.

Now there is a third guy named Ted Cruz who warns his fellow GOPers 'not to be bullied by Donald Trump".

So that is three so far. I am sure at least two more guys named Ted Cruz will come out of the woodwork soon.

They all look remarkably alike too, except some are clean shaven, and others have beards. :D

Trouble is that none of them are anywhere as talented in anyway as the 5 guys in the video. :lol:

MY version of this song: :dj:

We drink to our youth
For the days come and gone
For the Age of Stupidity is just about done

We'll drive out the MAGAs
And restore what we own
With our blood and our guns
We will take back our homes

Down with Trump, the wannabe king
On the day of your death
We will drink and we'll sing

We're the kids of America
And we fight all our lives
And where war and freedom beckons
Everyone of us dies

But this land is ours
And we'll see it wiped clean
Of the orange turd that has sullied
Our American Dream

While written 93 years ago, it pretty much sums up modern American politics.
