Quoth über-quack Mike Adams: Beware Lady Gaga. She worships...death! [Respectful Insolence]

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I’ve expounded on the principle of crank magnetism. Basically, crank magnetism is the tendency of cranks not to mind the crankery of other cranks, even if the two forms of crankery are mutually exclusive. But it’s more than that. It’s the tendency of a single crank to be attracted to several forms of crankery. We’ve seen it in creationists who are also attracted to “alternative medicine,” in anti-vaccine loons who are also attracted to alternative medicine and various conspiracy theories, including “9/11 Truth.” I’ve seen it in Holocaust deniers who are also attracted to both “alternative” medicine and the 9/11 Truth movement. Crank magnetism, at least as far as I’m concerned, is a real phenomenon.

Among cranks, Mike Adams is a living, breathing example of crank magnetism. There’s no form of quackery he doesn’t endorse and/or sell. He’s anti-vaccine to the core, and has even flirted with the 9/11 Truth movement in an anti-vaccine video, not to mention his open flirtation with a wide variety of conspiracy theories. It’s so bad that long ago I thought that nothing Adams could do could surprise me.

I was wrong. Now Adams is hating on Lady Gaga.

I’m serious. Get a load of his post from the other day entitled Lady Gaga, superstar to teens, wears dress made of animal flesh. It shows an aspect of Adams’ crank magnetism that surprised even me. The reason is that Adams’ tirade against Lady Gaga reminds me of fundamentalist tirades against Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, and others of my favorite bands of my generation. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not disturbed by this out of any appreciation for Lady Gaga or her music. He music’s sometimes catchy enough, but it’s also utterly disposable pop that’s forgotten almost as soon as it’s over. Lady Gaga herself strikes me as though she’s trying way too hard to be this generation’s Madonna. I suppose she’s succeeding through a combination of glitz, stagecraft, and passable dance music, but she’s never really impressed me, which is not suprising, given that Madonna never really impressed me much when she first rose to stardom in the 1980s.

And Adams doesn’t like it one bit:
