Meatloaf blacklisted

Home - by - March 12, 2012 - 17:00 America/New_York - 13 Comments




Those of us who understand how the New Blacklist works aren’t at all surprised to hear Meatloaf’s claim that after being outed as a Republican he now has fewer media outlets interested in helping him to promote his work.

But it’s the reaction of the Esquire writer that’s most interesting:

MEATLOAF: I’m not dealing with those subjects. Hell in a Handbasket is not dealing with the political nature of the country. It’s dealing with the humanity and the compassion of the world. I can give you an example — I’ve been banned from two TV shows.

ESQUIRE: For what?

ML: Because USA Today has me listed as a Republican.

ESQ: And the shows don’t want Republican guests?

ML: Yeah. I’ve heard those stories, but I didn’t really believe they’d do that.

ESQ: So the real issue you’re getting at on the album is a lack of humanity and compassion in the world?

ML: Yes, totally. A lack of humanity. A lack of compassion. A lack of self-examination, which is what “All of Me” [the first song] is about — the total disregard for one’s own humanity and how he looks at himself.

    THEY BANNED THE GUY WHO DID PARADISE BY THE DASH BOARD LIGHTS? The anthem for testosterone filled young men of our ERA. That’s more than Un American.

    @grayscape, GMTA. Superb idea!
    It was also suggested in the article’s comments.
    How about Meatloaf, the Nuge, Gary Sunise’s Lt. Dan Band, Megadeath, Hank Jr. and….?

    Meatloaf’s BOOH still rocks. One of my favorites.

    we are living in twisted times…think friggin’ twilight zone.

    you won’t get work if you love your country if and you will get work if you hate your country.

    ann barnhardt’s recent article about self-loathing
    says it all.

    these sick twerps on the left coast can go to hell and as far as going to their stickin’ movies? nevah!
