Get Ready for Grammy Awards Politics

The awards ceremony is supposed to be about entertainment, but expect Grammy Awards politics–which will mean Leftist causes.

The reason for Grammy Awards politics isn’t just an overall Leftist agenda that they desperately want to affect a majority of Americans. It’s also the fact that these entertainers can’t bear to think they’re merely entertainers. No, they have to believe they are “champions” and “fighters” for a cause.

Naturally, the media pretends that the people want to be propagandized and this is a completely spontaneous expression coming from the artists themselves in all their integrity. The headline almost hints that they are all hoping to conform to and leverage “the political climate.”

The attack that left 58 dead and hundreds more injured will be addressed on Sunday’s show with a tribute performance from Maren Morris, Eric Church and Brooks Osborne; the names of the victims will be displayed on paper lanterns.

The day before rehearsal kicked off, an open letter was circulated among the music industry by a group calling itself the “Voices of Entertainment.”
