Imagine John Lennon growing a brain

Imagine an over-rated bubble-gum pop musician who was elevated to the mountainpeaks of ill-deserved musical savant status, just because he also happened to be a charismatic evangelist for hallucinogenic communism.

That earned him the undying devotion and promotion of the social-engineering commies in the music industry, and that's why many today still believe the carefully crafted narrative that Lennon and the Beatles revolutionized American music. Or in other words saved us from a wasteland dominated by the mediocre succession of tuneless hacks that preceded him… like the Gershwins, Irving Berlin, Glen Miller, Louis Armstrong, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Benny Goodman, etc., etc., etc.

Thank goodness Lennon and McCartney finally wrote "I wanna Hold Your Hand" and ended our suffering.

Pardon my sarcasm, but I was there. Throughout my childhood the Beatles were shoved down my generation's throats as these worship-worthy musical Messiahs. Believe me, they were only spoken of in hushed, respectful tones.

I still remember how ticked off I was when I actually became aware of pre-Beatles music. Stuff that actually involved orchestras and choirs and jazz pianists, and mind-blowing talent. Oh, and more than four guitar chords.

But, as usual, I digress. Anyway, now can you imagine that same over-rated bubble-gum pop musician chucking all those halluconegenic and communistic ideals that brought him so much undeserved adulation for… Ronald Reagan?

I don't know if this is a crock or not, but it's still kind of fun to… well… Imagine. 

John Lennon was a closet Republican, who felt a little embarrassed by his former radicalism, at the time of his death – according to the tragic Beatles star's last personal assistant.

Fred Seaman worked alongside the music legend from 1979 to Lennon's death at the end of 1980 and he reveals the star was a Ronald Reagan fan who enjoyed arguing with left-wing radicals who reminded him of his former self. […]

I just wonder what Yoko has to say about all this.
