Cutting Through The Crap: Why Trump will be good for the arts

under the obama administration the ARTS became more constructed and more liberal than ever. they were pushing for an Agenda. and what resulted was a rise in art that covered the subjects of feces, urination, rage, etc. Dennis prager spoke about this and how the liberals have made the art world descend into total crap.

I took an Art History and modern day art class at UCLA and the teacher was so LIB everything had a bias to it. It really made me see how we have to totally revamp the Ivy leagues and the rest of the Universities. it is like spreading poison. I feel sorry for the Snowflake Millennials.

all looking for their safe space and crying in the corners... waiting to complain about microaggression. while seeking out pajama boys

DML writes today about a new University course slamming white people. wow.

Biden could teach that himself.

Why Trump will be good for the arts

Since the election, creative people have been feeling a little short of oxygen. Trump’s victory feels, for them, like a refutation of the world cherished by artists and actors, dancers and writers — a liberal world, tolerant, diverse, built on sharing and compassion. With Trump, we get the first president ever featured as a recurring character in professional wrestling, a P.T. Barnum from a post-literate vacuum. His troll army works day and night to mock “snowflakes,” oversensitive liberals who melt when confronted with a challenge to their existential worldview. Suddenly the Holy Trinity of Colbert, Trevor and Oliver isn’t so funny, and we’re baffled by Michigan. Who in the arts can explain the election of Trump? How do we account for the viral paranoia of Alex Jones, #Pizzagate and Putinism?

Take a deep breath, people. This will be good for the arts, even if it doesn’t feel that way.

There is plenty of evidence that fear is good. It stimulates, motivates, and gives focus. Fear gives the body and mind a kind of adrenal cleanse, a cocktail of cortisol and norepinephrine that sets the heart racing and floods your capillaries with oxygen and glucose. The amygdala lights up, looking for threats.

Matthew B. Crawford, author of “Shop Class as Soulcraft,” wrote that creativity is what you do “when the rules run out, or there are no rules.” That’s where we are right now. Feeling endangered drives us to seek deep meaning. And for that, only the most powerful cultural tools will serve. Those are, in order, poetry, the novel, theater, aspirational cinema and long-form television. Today’s source of our despair is tomorrow’s creative fodder.

This relationship seems contradictory — aren’t bad times for society bad times for artists? No, they aren’t. Art is born from overcoming obstacles, and the harder the times, the more Americans have depended on artists. Think of Woody Guthrie writing a song every day as he crisscrossed the Columbia River Valley. New York was broke, filthy and shrinking in the 1970s, and we got punk and Basquiat. The Reagan ’80s birthed the AIDS activism that today looks like a prophetic start on social justice and marriage equality.
