RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, a point of clarification. I don’t want anybody misunderstanding here. I’m not issuing a stamp of approval about the Grammy show’s substance. It was horrible. It was despicable. That’s not my point. My point is that whatever was going on in the show, the people that were given awards got them on the basis of substance. They sold more records or whatever the criteria.
Now, as for the show itself, A.J. McCarron, the former quarterback at Alabama is getting ready for the NFL draft. Now, I don’t know why what A.J. McCarron thinks made the news, but I’m glad that it did. It’s a Breitbart story. “Former Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, who is preparing for the NFL Draft, was watching the Grammys on Sunday and felt that the ‘really demonic’ performances showed that ‘there is a lot of evil in the world.’ …
“Katy Perry dressed up as a witch and was ‘burned at the stake’ in her act while gay couples were married to the song ‘same love,'” and that song openly attacked right-wing conservatives and Christians. I mean, that’s the point of these shows. I mean, let’s face it, people all over the country buy music. People from all political stripes buy music. These people feel the need to go out and mock, insult, and lampoon their audience. That’s what these shows have become.
