So I am soon 30 going on 50 years old as I am writing this entry so the subject matter is perhaps a abit out of my demographic. I´ve just watched an episode of a youtube program called “Kids react to…“. Its a simpel show about watching children react to different kinds of trends etc. Not my kind of show, but I saw it non the less. The episode in question is this ->
Kids React To Rebecca Black – My Moment
Its a fascinating video to watch as children show their less innocent side. In fact we get to see them really hating the girl Rebecca Black to the producers off-cam laughs. I wonder… Where does the hate come from? My Moment is not a bad song. Although Friday arguably is a bad song (I find it catchy and funny in a naiv sort of way. A childish song.), but still the hate that it has gotten is beyond rational and reminds me why I am a misanthrope.
I am sorry but yet again I have to bash the “freethinker” movement cuz this hate is clearly secular but still very human. And the hate is real to. What is written online is not “ironic” hate. Its pure hate. Comments under the friday video follows “Oh wait is this even called a song? I feel like vomiting when listen to this. Fucking shit quality”, “Rebecca Black: why haven’t terrorists killed her? Because they need her alive to terrorize America with her ear-bleeding voice 😄“, “Bitch Yur Luckyy I Dont Know Yu Ill Fucking Numb Yur Ass And Fucking Torture Yur Ass (: P.S. No One Cares If Its Friday ,Instead Of Singing About It Fucking Kill Yur Self On Friday Then Yu Will Make Everybodys Friday Better 🙂“, “rebecca, kill yourself, plz, no one likes your music you suck” etc. etc. etc. This is not normal… let me rephrase this. This should not be seen as normal!
I know the internett is a harsch place where “haters gonna hate“, “trolls are gonna troll” and voices of reason should be drowned by “fuck you”-s. But I still should be allowed to say that I hate those who hate just because its fashionable. I am not against hate. Its natural feeling like any other. People should be allowed to hate Christians, Muslims, Black people, White people, women, men, Rebecca Black, Justin Bieber, Bill Maher, Socialist, right wingers, people who swear to much, the haters, the players, the game, atheists etc. Everyone should be allowed to be hated, but… Fashionable hate or “group hate” is just so effing stupid and sickening. Often in this “group hate” people try to overgo each other in being the most vile in the description of the person, group the cum [sic] together to hate.
My Moment is a nice song. It is not the nicest song ever written. Perhaps you think its “too commercial” compared to your avant garde music taste, be that SlipKnot, Madrugada, Morrissey, Bob Dylan, ELO, Björk, AC/DC, Ulver, Panthera or John Lennon, but the song is a decent song. And even if you hated the song Friday for being a badly song, badly written and generally stupid song, you can not say that My Moment is bad for its type of music. People who say this is blinded by hate, just like people get blinded by love.
Its like a ying/yang thing.
Did that make sense to you?
Oh, and in 2012 Rebecca Black is 15 (FIFTHTEEN) years old. Meaning, she is a CHILD. Being treated this cruelly by others should be seen as BULLYING by PC people and they should react to this like any other bullying. With contempt!
