      An offense to every musician who’s ever roamed the Earth

        A little better than the woke garbage that taylor swift produces like the song “The Man”where everything is sexist.

        • loverspt says:

          Wow, a psychotic episode happening right before my eyes

        • loverspt says:

          It’s very psychotic, I’m afraid. Don’t forget to take your medicine regularly so Taylor Swift’s voice in your head doesn’t stop you from sleeping

        • loverspt says:

          Eh, nobody here, except, again, whatever the voices that live within your mind are telling you, has stated here that Taylor Swift (so randomly brought up), her makings, as well as her actions should be highly regarded as a moral compass or the most ideal example of high art or positive and useful impact on society. Plus, an idiot accusing me of condoning and supporting a worldview created and endorsed by the most despicable and damaging entities of the far-right throughout human history while… being an avid and assured supporter of… Ben Shapiro, out of all people might be the funniest thing I’ve ever come across on this website (tough competition). Congratulations

            Probably just a foot note, to be honest.

          • jackson9 says:

            Passingtime why is this garbage kept up but when I say anything about Biden it’s censored?

          • passingtime85 says:

            Ps and Qs man, that’s all I can say.

          • jackson9 says:

            Of course because @loverspt has been very respectful and polite. very good point!

          • passingtime85 says:

            I mean…well, you know what I mean. Lots of conversations exist here that have become people arguing with ghosts… I guess too much personal axe grinding isn’t going to be tolerated, especially if the administrators disagree with your position.

      • Dannon says:

        Even if he isn’t a god person in your eyes, he’s still technically a rapper. We should add it because his song is #1 in America right now.

        • loverspt says:

          He’s as good of a person as legitimate of a rapper, so what now?

          • Dannon says:

            Again, you may not like him, but he is technically a rapper, and it should be noted on his profile. The song also happened to be #1 on iTunes, so I’d say that he is *by definition* a rapper.

          • jackson9 says:

            @Dannon although nothing you said is the least bit controversial I think @Follers might start censoring you if you say anything positive of shapiro.

        • follers says:

          @Dannon I don’t know about rapper, but maybe I should describe him as “actor”? He was great in Children of the Corn, as the child preacher who ordered all the children to kill their parents. It’s a shame he’s turned to evil since.

          The #1 song in America by the way, at least as of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for February 3, was “Lovin On Me” by Jack Harlow. I realize that’s a controversial description of the individual as “rapper” as well.

          • jackson9 says:

            Lol. Follers who are you rooting for Sunday? I am a nyj fan but Mahomes is my Goat

          • Dannon says:

            I am saying #1 on ITUNES. He is by definition a rapper. We don’t need to bring politics into this. I Never wanted to in the first place. I’m just saying he is. He was rapping in a Rap Sing that was published and released, and even got #1 on iTunes for a bit. You can’t disprove that.

          • Dannon says:

            He wasnt Even in children of the Corn. That is public knowledge. Someone photoshopped him into there, or he looks similar to that person.

          • jackson9 says:

            @Dannon is right. @Loverspt had to insert his political beliefs by saying how horrible he is to begin with. and adding a movie character that is PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE that he wasn’t in. @Loverspt keep this up and you WILL be banned!!!

      • Dannon says:

        *more specifically #1 in iTunes

    As you all know Ben Shapiro is very Ashkenazim, I’ve heard from some jerks spouting out that his mother’s line traces far back from the Spanish Inquisition in 1492 (which means that Ben Shapiro may have a few amounts of Albanian Jewish and Portuguese Jewish heritage which in turn gives out an ‘Indonesian Jewish’ ancestry through the Dutch East Indies colony). Not much is actually known about his mother, but I know for sure that Ben’s family has always told him that he had to claim his ethnicity as “pure” Ashkenazi Jewish, which may be the reason why —- —– —- — ———- ——–.- Other than that, I suspect that both his parents hail from Argentina, a heavily Ashkenazi Jewish country.

    So change the original to something like this:
    Ashkenazi Jewish => Ashkenazi Jewish [Argentinian Jewish]
