It's about "America's legacy of racism and anti-Semitism" says Robyn Pennacchia for Quartz when making the case that square dancing has actually been a tool for white supremacy all along.
"To understand how square dancing became a state-mandated means of celebrating Americana, it’s necessary to go back to Henry Ford, the founder of Ford Motor Vehicles," the writer affirms.
In a nutshell, it's the same sad cry from liberals we hear all the time. In this case, tt's all about Ford hating jazz and Jews in the hierarchy of victimhood that plagues the liberal mindset and perpetuates the narrative that systemic oppression is all around us -- even in dancing.
Why jazz? What's wrong with jazz?
According to this sad notion, jazz was invented by Jewish people (it wasn't but Ford apparently thought it was) who Ford allegedly despised. Ford apparently viewed jazz as a way to corrupt the masses. If this theory holds any truth at all, then Ford's number one reason for bringing back square dancing was his way of ensuring that the black population wasn't corrupted by evil Jews.
"As innocuous as state-sponsored square dancing may seem, it’s just one of the many small ways that oppression has shaped the history and culture of the US."
Kris Cruz and Doc Thompson weren't exactly sold on this notion and basically balked at her case on Tuesday's episode of "The Morning Blaze."
