BobP Preserve Politically Incorrect Songs??? (73* d) RE: BS: Preserve 'Politically Incorrect Songs??? 16 May 01


Un-PC songs are being trashed even as we speak.

Steven Foster's stuff is loaded with offensive commentary; according to some standards.

Social sentiments expressed in Irish and Scottish ballads will come under increased scrutiny as li'l minds continue to take over (the meek shall . . . ?).

Doesn't "Star of the County Down " concern a plan to plant a bride (permanently, I expect) in front of a fireplace? How's that for a candidate for the heap? I could go on all day (all year perhaps).

Dangerous contraction of free expression didn't vanish with the fall of Germany's National Socialists; The Nazi spirit remains alive and well. There are folks who would gladly control what you eat, think, say, do and sing.
