    This is the best thing I’ve seen in many days. First smile I’ve had in a week.

    Oh for the love of God. Our elites babble incessantly about “diversity”. But this is the real damn thing. “All Along the Watchtower” has been one of my personal anthems for 50 years. I have never heard it played so marvelously, so miraculously, so completely.

      They did a great job but I seriously doubt that that performance by very competent musicians has a thing to do with the day-to-day variant of what we actually have with “diversity”.

    Here’s another in that series I believe… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avx2OkDZN6o

    Once again, the mavens of so-called “diversity” exclude the stylings of Wahhabi guitar legend Djinni bin Hendriks and his Sufidelic classic “Allah’s On The Watchtower.”

    There must be some kind of blade over here
    Said the Mullah to the Thief
    There’s too many contusions
    I can’t make this chop neat
    Taliban, they stone my wife
    Bombers scorch my earth
    No one in this land of strife
    Know what a poppy is worth

    No reason to go Wahhabist
    The Thief, he slyly spoke
    There are infidels among us
    Who think that Shari’ah is a joke
    But you and I we’ve been thru that
    And that is not our faith
    So let us stop chopping falsely now
    My stump is starting to ache

    Well, ALLAH’s on the watchtower
    Snipers kept their view
    As unveiled woman came and wept
    As we stoned them too
    Outside in the Kush distance
    A Blackhawk did prowl
    Two Warthogs were approaching
    And the wind began to howl

    This Dylan song takes me to Biblical times; to the exile and Assyrian and Babylonian times. All along the watchtower, princes kept the view. Stone parapets and the walled city.

    The joker and the thief. You can be either one, or both. It’s universal-it means what you’re thinking it means. All I’ve got is a red guitar; three chords and the truth. The rest is up to you.

    It’s: apocalyptic. I mean that sincerely. There are end times, and then there are end times. Choose.
