SNL manages to politicize Hallelujah

SNL manages to politicize Hallelujah

I will continue not to watch.

I don’t watch Saturday Night Live anymore, and haven’t in well over a decade.

It’s just not funny, and almost always is anti-Republican and anti-conservative.

Last night Kate McKinnon — in the role of Hillary Clinton — did a respectable rendition of Hallelujah, in memory of Leonard Cohen. We covered the original and several other versions in our memorial post.

But, as expected, at the very end she turned it political: “I’m not giving up, and neither should you.”

I will continue not to watch.

While perusing YouTube last night, the cold open popped up the front page. I clicked, but was heavily disappointed. I found the skit to be a chicken shit move on the part of SNL. Had Hillary won, SNL would have been gloating non-stop in the open. Chicken Shit.

I stopped watching SNL when it stopped being funny and fun to watch.

Yeah, that long ago.

    That would be when Belushi, Ackroyd and company left. Yeah. That was a while ago. I actually tried watching a few times after that but was always disappointed.

“I’m not giving up, and neither should you.”

That sounds like encouragement to riot.

Call me an ole’ toady, but I have a considerable dislike for the way in which some of the most beautiful, moving music ever written has been appropriated for all sorts of demeaning, yes degrading, purposes. This is just another example.

I didn’t listen to the vid. Next time I hear the “Hallelujah Chorus” I don’t want the image to push its way into my consciousness. I’d much rather hear some off-key, untrained voices of a faithful choir.
