Ben Shapiro referred to it as the “Vulgarization of American history” and Matt Walsh called it a spectacle. What are your thoughts on Lizzo playing the 200 y/o flute that belonged to 4th President, James Madison? Do you see any issues, or are some people going overboard with the backlash?

It was an absolute embarrassment., I’m really getting to the point that I am so ashamed to be an american
Fair enough, but the thing is some people don’t understand the big pushback. They just see it as a woman, playing a flute. Okay, she wasn’t dressed “modestly” – but isn’t America all about pushing the boundaries?
I think now the woke left are just picking things out of a hat on what they think will cause the most offence of the day. And it’s working. People react. We should all just stop giving attention to these things and like a two year old, they will quieten down eventually.
If you do a deep dive into Madison he is fascinating and unexpected. As for this, I don’t listen to her music because I don’t like her songs or the words she chooses to use. I mean, did she at least play the flute well? Because…it’s just a flute. If she didn’t damage it…whatever. Might the LOC think twice before loaning her something? Maybe. My vote: overboard.
From watching the video, it was like a 10 second thing. She basically played a note and twerked. The main question on many people’s minds is “what’s the point?”
But I believe there were two instances, one in the LOC and one while she was performing.
Beyond insulted for multiple reasons. One, this is disrespectful to a national treasure connected to not only a Founder of my nation but the Father of the Constitution. Second, this makes black women look like nothing but a joke or a prop to be put on stage for the entertainment of white leftists. And finally the blatant hypocrisy of someone like Lizzo who complains about oppression while doing this is a slap in the face to anyone under true oppression. Can you get away with playing Mao’s flute in the same manner in China or steal one of Castro’s cigars in Cuba? No.
I don’t get it, why shouldn’t she? She’s a talented American musician who expresses herself as she wishes. I know nothing about the man, except he’s obviously an important historical American figure. Is there a reason this is controversial?
