I’m Concerned About All You Folks Out There With “Beach Privilege”

Sadly, this is not The Onion, as brought to us via Brett T at Twitchy

Consider, for example, the Beach Boys. Some may remember when the country unified behind President Reagan to demand that the band be allowed to play the Independence Day concert on the National Mall, despite a caution by Interior Secretary James Watt that rock bands attracted the wrong element to the festivities.

Those were simpler times, and the idea that the Beach Boys were ever a national treasure shared by all has been challenged recently in the New York Review of Books. Ben Ratiff made his own waves by exposing the ugly truth: the Beach Boys’ biggest hits were nothing more than “poem of unenlightened straight-male privilege, white privilege, beach privilege” that played no part in helping anyone achieve their social rights.

Serious stuff from the NY Times, folks

All those rich liberals in the Hamptons and Malibu hit hardest. Seriously, can’t we just enjoy something without nutjobs ruining it?

  • Hey dude, don’t disrespect nutjobs like that by conflating or comparing them to a bunch of sellout hiveminded drones.
