The arts are being censored now. Hip hop artist Topher and The Marine Rapper, both military veterans, recorded the song “The Patriot.” It was #3 on hip hop, #4 on R&B and #34 in all digital downloads. Industry experts say the song was poised to go even higher. Maybe #1.
Until it was pulled from streaming services. The song uses no profanity. You’re just not allowed to buy it. Topher’s crime? Being a successful artist who also leans right, evidently. We felt compelled to share the story and the video.
Since when did we as a society become okay with censoring the arts? And what is the offense of “The Patriot?”
