a) Save for the Beastie Boys, none of these artists are strongly identified with liberalism
b) Conservatives make crappy music
Does all the music you guys listen to align precisely with your ideological orientation? Am I not allowed to respect yet disagree with the views of these artists while still enjoying their music? It's not like I'm blasting Straight Outta Compton at a pro-life rally.
Note: I do not respect the views of Kanye, as he is as dumb as a bag of socks. However, he is an excellent producer.
