Selectively Separating Art from the Artist

Martina MarkotaRebel Contributor

It’s in the left’s own playbook that if someone dares disagree with you, then you can’t like any aspect about them. 

You can’t like their clothes, you can’t say they’re pretty or handsome, you can’t say they're well-mannered or at least disagree with you respectfully. You can’t enjoy anything they do – they can’t be deemed a good writer, their art must be discredited, their ability to perform in their specific profession must be brought into doubt.

In other words, the whole character of that person must be assassinated – unless, of course, it isn’t politically expedient to do.

So today I’m asking… is it possible to separate art from the artist?

What would happen if artwork depicted the Clintons or Obama as dead socialists hung by their feet? What am I saying! We all know the howls and outrage that would immediately happen. Do as we say, not as we do.

Jimmy Reece when the art is all about the person there can be no separation.

I used to separate the art from the artist. But not any longer, not now that these artists are either violating women and children and getting in our faces politically.

Sometimes it’s hard to separate the artist from politics. People hate being preached to and when musicians and writers do that, they lose fans. People retreat to books and music to get away from the talky-faced TV and radio hosts. But the escape is destroyed by preachy leftists and their insanity toward Donald Trump. Maybe boycots by normal folks will make those pushers of political correctness shut up.
