Right Wing Rock
First there was Ted Nugent. Then Foghat. (Okay, that was just an ugly rumor.) Now there’s a new right-wing band to vying for the hearts and minds of America ’s youth: Junkyard Prophet.
But, instead of trying to beg its way onto MTV to build its audience, this band is performing directly inside of America’s high schools.
Oh, and the federal government is footing the bill.
That’s right. Over the last few years, a band called Junkyard Prophet (through its youth outreach organization, You Can Run But You Cannot Hide) has been touring across Middle America, spewing its ultra-conservative message at hundreds of school assemblies along the way. And it’s received hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars for its efforts.
Worth reading the whole story - propaganda being jammed down the throats of our young, who are being prepared for programming by NCLB.
