I see your point. Although I think it would have been on the airwaves excessively without Christian reaction. I didn't initially hear about this on any Christian channel, though I have seen some channels on youtube discuss it. I was at work and it was all over the home tab that displays the news from mainstream media. Didnt pay much attention to it....because these celebrities are always doing something. Then I came on the forums and read more info about it. The next time I saw an mainstream article, I actually read it because apparently this was a "big thing" and I wanted to see what the media was saying in their own words.I'll cut him slack because he's an industry puppet. Very few of these performers are actually on the inside. I mean you blame the handler, not the MK victim. Right?
They say that one video got 20 million views in 2 days? How you gonna accomplish that?
Simple, you take something that would offend 2 billion people and then you advertise it.
As they say, there is no such thing as bad publicity. I'm sure Nas x or whatever his name is, is very thankful for all those offended people who lined his pockets with ad revenue on that video. How about those shoes? $1k each pair was it? Guaranteed they're all sold out.
By making the video popular the shoes have become popular. I can see people wanting the shoes just to annoy Christians if nothing else.
Lets be honest here, Christians go banana's whenever the devil takes the spotlight. This Nas thing being everywhere you turn is proof of that. Is it not? After all 1/4 of the planet is Christian. I don't follow current music at all and I'm well informed about the "human blood shoes", even though i haven't sought this info out. Its put before me because its everywhere.
Had Christendom ignored it, odds are high me, you and a good billion others wouldn't know about it either.
Hence the need for "shock and awe". With all of this publicity, you can be sure the next "cash grab" is already in the works.
My 2 cents, take it for what its worth.
I think it is bigger than angering the Christians.... it's a good excuse on the surface, but I think the reasoning for these types of events are very layered. Similar things have been happening in the music industry for several decades, only now becoming unashamedly blatant for people of all ages to see. This didn't start with LNX.
Things like this serve to draw a line, divide the people into "for" or "against" and create highly emotional, highly reactive or easily manipulated people. This is a very big and purposeful thing for the "elite" to accomplish. I recommend reading Albert Pike's letter about the "3 World Wars".. I believe it ties into the bigger picture of all this.
