Yo. This One's For All The Young Conservatives

Fear not movement conservatives, Stiltz and Serious C are here for you.

From their website:
Stiltz & Serious C are a duo from Dartmouth College and co-founders of the thriving Young Conservatives Facebook group. In a day where conservatives are seen as close-minded and archaic, these fresh hip hop artists bring a new perspective to a long-standing philosophy. They are a bastion of progress in the liberal recesses of the northeast, throwing down their message amidst much adversity. Instead of sinking into the assemblage of the self satisfied, Stiltz & Serious C challenge our hearts and minds with lyrics that makes us think about the current evolution of our American society. The mile-high beats of Josh Riddle collide with the eastern flow of David Rufful to produce a dynamic fusion of hip-hop and a real, profound conservative message.
I am not kidding. Here is their facebook page.

And here is their Anthem:

Where they Serious C raps:
Phase me, make me, into something that ain’t me
Serious c... can’t nobody shake me
great like the Gatsby, poppin posers like acne
Don't matter if your gay, straight, Christian or Muslim
There's one thing we all hate, called socialism.
It's loathsome, and America ain’t the outcome,
Raise taxes on the people,
And you’re gonna feel symptoms, problems
I gotta message for a young con:
superman that socialism,
waterboard that terrorism
Uh, wasn't Jay Gatsby (Serious C's reference above) a criminal who was obsessed with another man's wife? How many commandments has Gatsby broken before he is killed at the end of Fitzgerald's great novel?

How is that a good role model for young conservatives?

In any event, waterboarding is still torture and it's still illegal.

Stiltz has this to say:
Three things taught me conservative love:
Jesus, Ronald Reagan, plus Atlas Shrugged
Atlas Shrugged? But elsewhere Serious C raps:
I hate when,
government dictatin, makin, statements, bout how to be a merchant,
How to run a restaurant, how to lay the pavement
Bailout a business, but can't protect an infant
But doesn't the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights declare that abortion is an "absolute" right?

Why yes, it does:
Roe v. Wade is correct in its conclusion that a fetus has no rights and that a woman has the right to determine whether or not to abort her pregnancy.
And didn't Rand herself write:
Abortion is a moral right—which should be left to the sole discretion of the woman involved; morally, nothing other than her wish in the matter is to be considered. Who can conceivably have the right to dictate to her what disposition she is to make of the functions of her own body?
I'm just asking.

Maybe the Young Cons should reread their Ayn Rand as well as their F. Scott Fitzgerald.

This is the level of intelligence coming out of Dartmouth today? Too much upper class inbreeding leads to loser legacies like this...

And, I don't know about you, but I sorta like that the guvment defines how roads are built. In the early days of our country, many were privately owned, and there would be a toll about every 20 miles and there were no standards. Oh, and "how to run a restaurant?" If we left that to the "free market," we'd be getting sick constantly and still inhaling other people's smoke.

Ayn Rand (do they know she was an atheist?) is, at the end of the day, a total lightweight, but people love to latch onto her, as if doing so makes them appear intelligent. It's been happening since the 50's....

I guess I must post this Weird Al gem to describe how white and nerdy these guys are.
