THE SUPER BOWL LIV HALFTIME SHOW WAS POLISHED, HIGHLY PRODUCED – AND VULGAR
This year, Super Bowl LIV took place in Miami. It was, therefore, appropriate for the halftime show to have a Latin beat, with Shakira and J-Lo as the headliners. Still, some people asked, “Did the show have to be so vulgar?” On the pro side, Shakira and J-Lo are both superb entertainers, the songs they used were fun and energetic, the Latin beat rocked, and the backup performers were excellent. All in all, the show was a polished 14 minutes of top-flight Latin-infused pop music and dancing. Any people who attend a stadium show just to see these two performers, both of whom sing and dance extremely well, would have felt they got their money’s worth. Bravo!
But on the con side, the show was vulgar, and that’s not just because, in keeping with all Latin dancing going back to the early 20th century, there was a lot of hip-shaking. Few people are going to get bent out of shape by that traditional Latin American dance dynamic. While shaking hips are now old hat, there were still a lot of vulgar moves and costumes in the halftime show:
- Shakira implied bondage by wrapping a rope around herself.
- Bevies of athletic young women thrusting their pelvises at the TV cameras.
- Shakira writhed on the floor as a rapper bent over her body.
- Shakira ululated while flicking her tongue at the camera.
- J-Lo and her back-up dancers wore leather bondage outfits reminiscent of the leather gear fetish gay men wore in San Francisco’s Folsom District in the 1970s and 1980s.
- J-Lo wagging her half-naked butt at the camera.
- J-Lo and her male backup dancers kept grabbing their own crotches.
- J-Lo did some pole-dancing in a minimalist costume that barely covered her lady parts, while presiding over what is meant to look like an orgy, with people in white bondage wear writhing below her (plus more crotch-grabbing).
- J-Lo freak-dancing, which happens when a woman backs her butt up to a man’s crotch and they rub against each other as they dance.
With all of this sexually explicit dancing, it was bizarre to have the show end with a chorus of sweet-faced girls (including J-Lo’s own daughter) doing the usual women’s empowerment shtick. For old-fashioned feminists, sexually objectifying oneself has little to do with empowerment.
AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL
Republicans only vote once every four years. A good example of this is the Sixth Congressional District here in Georgia. In 2016, the Democratic Party spent 28 million dollars to defeat Republican candidate Karen Handel, but failed. Two years later, spending virtually no money and with an unknown candidate, they defeated Handel. Why? The Republicans failed to get out and vote. Hopefully, they have now seen what happens when you don’t vote, the inmates take over the asylum. And if the moron American hating Democrats keep the majority in the House of Representatives in November, Nancy Pelosi will remain Speaker of the House and second in line for the presidency of the United States. That should be enough incentive for every freedom loving American to get out and vote.
