VIDEO: Before There Was Fake News, There Was Fake Art

“Art is a powerful resource for human betterment that has been sidelined by elitist malfeasance; it’s time we took it back” – Bledsoe


“Elitists crashed our culture, assuming they would rule over the ruins.

That’s not going to happen. “

Richard Bledsoe: A Remodern America Video


The great culture warrior Andrew Breitbart once observed, “Politics is downstream from culture.” This brilliant statement is a paraphrase of a pronouncement made by visionary English artist William Blake: “Empires follow art, and not vice versa…”

Before our elites swamped us with fake news, they undermined us with fake art. I’m Richard Bledsoe. Welcome to Remodern America.

A funny thing happened during the Twentieth century. In the Modern era, the timeless human practice of art as the communal communication of significance, order, and beauty found new modes of expression that created intense artistic experiences. However, these dynamic developments were ultimately derailed by Leftist partisans. The art world establishment colluded to promote muddled and meaningless experiments previous generations would have recognized were not worthy of the name of…

Elitist Artist Marina Abramovic and Postmodernism’s Diabolical Agenda

“To the Postmodernist, the cosmos is subjective. There is no reality to know, no morality, no way to gauge effective behavior; there are only opinions. These opinions aren’t even our own, but are determined by whichever group identity we subscribe to.,,”


Definitely Not a Satanist:

Marina Abramovic

“I’m only interested in an art which can change the ideology of society….”

-Marina Abramovic

Part of what I want this blog to do is highlight certain notable figures of the commercialized contemporary art world to a new audience.

I’d like to help educate all those good people who, up until now, have been uninterested, alienated, or even hostile to the efforts of today’s educated creative classes and their deep-pocketed supporters. From what I see, this potential audience of the disengaged is practically everyone in entire world.

What I want this newly attentive audience to appreciate is how correct they were to reject this garbage all along. This involves exposing the corruption festering away in the greedy and debased hearts of the institutions who have forced these toxins on an unwilling culture.

I also like to talk about inspirational figures and exciting new paths…

Countering a Culture Programmed by Traitorous Hacks

“The Postmodern institutions are working hard to suppress this cultural evolution. They are desperate to maintain their social monopoly, and the stakes are even higher than the art world.”


On the Turning Away

Richard Bledsoe “Fugue” acrylic on canvas 20″ x 16″ 

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except the endless present in which the party is always right.”

-George Orwell, 1984


That quote, and many others from the same seminal work, are frequently cited on the internet these days. Orwell’s prophetic concepts are being enacted in real time right now, all around us. It’s frustrating because it’s all so contrived, and choreographed; nevertheless, actual damage is being done.

But the great unmaking is not a new phenomenon. The long-planned destruction of Western Civilization has been going on for decades, hidden in plain sight. The corrosion was…

“Post-Modernism” as a virus


Its Hour Come Round at Last:

They say great minds think alike.

When I saw the Ace of Spades HQ recently referenced a certain poem by William Butler Yeats as a pithy headline, I recognized we were surfing the same wave of zeitgeist. “The Second Coming” has haunted me for decades, and it’s hard not to recognize its relevance as we navigate the uncharted waters of the Woo Han Hoopla Hysteria.  (FYI I know that place name is misspelled. It’s an attempt to circumvent the censorious Silicon Curtain filters. You know they’re doing it).

The Second Coming by WB Yeats

Turning and turning in the widening gyre

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is…

Tally This Banana

It was the zany story of the week. A prank so dumb, it was like it was tailor-made for Morning Zoo DJs.

At the glitzy swap meet of Miami Basel, a contemporary artist offered a banana duct taped to a wall for $120,000.00. The punchline is, somebody bought it.

This is about the only scenario when contemporary art gains mass media traction: when something stupid sells for lots of money. Then it becomes a snarky variation on a human interest story.

The fruit is a big hit. It’s called “Comedian,” which is a valid accusation. It was an edition of 3, and the whole bunch sold, each with their genuine certificate of authenticity. A performance artist tried to hitch his wagon to this star by eating the banana. He was not arrested for the art theft. A crisis was averted when piece was reinstalled by simply…
