Every day it feels more and more like the bearded one hit wonder online singer was either a psyop or marketing gimmick.
They are essentially the same thing anyway.
It makes no sense to sing what you were singing if you really believe it and then go to the party in the desert.
Maybe next year he will go to Bohemian Grove.
Country star Oliver Anthony, who recently went viral, is among the many attendees stuck at Burning Man due to severe flooding caused by rare rains in the Black Rock Desert. Over 70,000 festival-goers, known as “Burners,” have been advised to stay put and conserve supplies.
Anthony, aged 31, was supposed to have an interview with the Midwestern Marx political journal but was described as “trapped” at the festival.
The chaotic conditions at Burning Man this year have drawn comparisons to the infamous Fyre Festival, where attendees were stranded in the Bahamas in 2017.
How Did Oliver Anthony Become an Instant Star — and Conservative Hero?
In less than two weeks, Oliver Anthony went from totally unknown artist to the top of the charts with “Rich Men North of Richmond” — and then scored a mention at the Republican primary debate
“Rich Men North of Richmond” begins with a straightforward protest of exploitative labor conditions, as Anthony sings:
I’ve been sellin’ my soul, workin’ all day
Overtime hours for bullshit pay
So I can sit out here and waste my life away
Drag back home and drown my troubles away
’Cause your dollar ain’t shit and it’s taxed to no end
’Cause of rich men north of Richmond
I wish politicians would look out for miners
And not just minors on an island somewhere
Lord, we got folks in the street, ain’t got nothin’ to eat
And the obese milkin’ welfare
Well, God, if you’re 5-foot-3 and you’re 300 pounds
Taxes ought not to pay for your bags of fudge rounds
Young men are puttin’ themselves six feet in the ground
’Cause all this damn country does is keep on kickin’ them down
Lord, it’s a damn shame what the world’s gotten to
For people like me and people like you
The singer was formerly a factory worker.
