You Tube Artist Turns Scathing Ginsburg Hobby Lobby Dissent Into Epic Protest Song (VIDEO)

Published On June 30, 2014 | By james |

You’d have to have your head buried deep… well… in the sand, if you’re unaware of the major implications of Monday’s not-so-shocking Supreme Court Burwell v. Hobby Lobby decision. Let’s face it, thanks in large part to George W. Bush (the fucking gift that keeps on giving), the highly corrupted ALEC-supported conservatives on the nations highest court have been nothing but corporate lackeys since the day they were installed.

But while the internet is exploding with excerpts from Justice Ruth Ginsburg’s scathing 35-page dissent, one You Tube artistJohnathon Mann – sprinkled in a little artistic licence and decided to turn it an epic protest song.

“Religious organizations exist
To foster the interests
Of persons subscribing to the same religious faith
Not so of for-profit corporations
Workers who sustain the operations
commonly are not drawn from one religious community 

 

It bears note that the cost of an IUD
Is nearly equivalent 
To a months full time pay
For workers on the minimum wage

 

The court I fear
Has ventured into a minefield 
Slut shaming geezers
And religious extremism 
One thing’s clear
This fight isn’t over
We gotta stand together
For what we know is right

 

Any decision to use contraceptives
Is not propelled by government
It’s the woman’s autonomous choice, informed by her doctor 
Approving some religious claims
While deeming others unworthy
Could be perceived as favoring one religion over another

 

Would the exemption extend to blood transfusions
Antidepressants and anesthesia 
Pills coated with gelatin and vaccinations?  

 

The court I fear
Has ventured into a minefield 
Slut shaming geezers
And religious extremism 
One thing’s clear
This fight isn’t over
We gotta stand together
For what we know is right.”
