Look, I'm not trying to crap all over the sentiment from some in Hollywood calling for unity during a time like this. Some of them may genuinely want that. But, others definitely know what a song like John Lennon's "Imagine" means. And like most politicians, they wouldn't let a situation like a pandemic go to waste.
"Wonder Woman" actress Gal Gadot posted a video to her Instagram on Wednesday of various celebrities singing different lines from "Imagine" in order to promote unity.
Take a look:
Sorry, but I find it a little ironic that members of what I've previously called the "Hollywood communistic cult" would sing a communist anthem during a pandemic caused - or made worse, whichever way you want to look at it - by the communist Chinese government.
And just to prove that I'm not wearing a tin foil hat in asserting that "Imagine" is clearly a communist anthem, take it from the words of Lennon himself.
According to Rolling Stone:
Lennon himself described “Imagine” as “virtually the Communist Manifesto, even though I am not particularly a communist and I do not belong to any movement…. But because it is sugarcoated, it is accepted.”
Again, I'm sure a fair amount of the people in the video above meant well, but take a look at the meaning of what you're singing before you do so. Sometimes a good song is a good song, but when you're singing it for a purpose, the words mean more than just a flowery tune.
