Megan Fox has proven a lot in her nearly two decades in conservative politics, and one such thing is how much damage conservatives have done to the nation by handing over Hollywood and culture to the left-wing extremism that is now running all of America. He spoke about the intersection of culture and politics, including his cultural endeavors, in an exclusive interview with Bounding into Comics.

Over a year ago, Fox interviewed the author of this Q&A for his podcast, The edgeand we discussed various things, including Generation X and my short story, “Thor vs. the Valkyries.”
So after reading this, be sure to check out the established subscription The edge and please also watch “Thor vs. the Valkyries.” They are great ways to help both of us.
Getting into Comics: The Conservatives are familiar with PJ Media and write political and news articles. But he writes on cultural topics as well – as well as art and entertainment. And offer your other YouTube channel the same. How do you see culture and politics coming together?
Megan Fox: The great Andrew Breitbart used to say that politics is about culture. The left always knew that and so they set out to capture Hollywood first. After being taken there, the messages in their movies resonate in the minds of the public and their politicians push the same ideas at the ballot box. It’s a mind-bending technique and the right can’t even try to play the game. They gave up the entertainment industry without a fight.
One of the most critical critics of the Hollywood takeover was Ayn Rand. He worked in the film industry and loudly criticized the subversive stories that continued to demonize the businessman. It’s as simple as that one trope repeated over and over again that has become engrained in the minds of the low-information voter. “Capitalism, evil. Socialism, that’s right. ” It is imperative that the right includes culture and creates content that guides our values. For someone like me, I like to always point to the brainwashing that has infected our happiness. It is important to break the system by pointing to the man behind the curtain so that the audience stops being used by propaganda. The first step in breaking the hold is to see.

BiC: We are both Gen X and the latest news is that Gen X is the most Republican generation. Do you think this is true and cultural influences on Gen X are partly responsible for this?
MF: I think it’s true. And unfortunately for us is the younger generation on both sides are the Boomers, who will not give up the reins of power and insist on managing until their eighties, and on the other side are the spoiled Millennials whose parents insist they get trophies for everything. . They are the most privileged generation alive and it will pay for us all when they take over.
Gen X grew up independent. We were the last generation to be left alone, to think things through the hard way. We were given that freedom as children and we value it and resist any attempt to restrict us or tell us what to do. It’s Gen X’s way of rebelling against any attempt to control us. It’s a “do-it-yourself” generation and that makes me very proud to be a part of it. Gen X is also the last generation to be unaffected by social media in our formative years. We’re good at entertaining ourselves without the help of Big Tech. While we can use it and enjoy it, we can do without it.
I worry about my kids that they will never know what it means to be fully human, even though I have done a good job with my oldest who refuses social media and rarely spends time on his phone. He is my illegitimate child and he is seeing lies. I work with two young ones, but the pull of Big Tech is strong even for kids who don’t have access to social media (like mine doesn’t).
The thing is, as a Gen Xer, I appreciate video games. Nintendo and Atari were the wonders of my childhood and so I don’t feel obligated to keep kids away from the video games and apps they love to play. But I worry that they will never know what it’s like to be bored. Being lonely is good for you. I have summer rules in my house where we are not allowed on electronics until sunset. That helps. The world is a wonderful place and the sky is full of wonder. I want my children to experience the joy of hunting frogs instead of playing Crossy Road. For the most part, I’ve been successful but the anxiety is constant.
BiC: We’ve talked before and you mentioned that you have an idea for a novel set in the 1980s. How is that going and what can you tell us about the building?
MF: It’s not going well. I started writing it and I’m five chapters into it and haven’t touched it in a long time. I’ve never written fiction and so the fear of getting it wrong got in the way, I think. Although the idea is good and I have it spinning around in my head, the process is daunting for someone like me who is a non-fiction writer. What I don’t like about the popular fiction I’ve read is the preachiness embedded in it. I think it’s something we have to design as content creators trying to influence culture. We have to do it in a better way than the left beating the reader over the head with the “message.” I have this thought trying to show that this noble territory, a system where the government can take your land for its own purposes and enrichment, is a terrible attack on freedom and liberty, and it is a difficult line to walk. I don’t know if I will ever finish it. I hope I do.
When I moved to Western New York, one of the things that struck me here was the Native American influence. It is very clear here. It’s in the air. There is a hike you can go on here that takes you back 1,000 years and you can almost see the heroes on the trails. It is a very magical place with waterfalls and natural beauty. History is sad and the stories are many. All of that plays into my story that I hope to tell you one day. It’s a story of betrayal, oppression, historical torture, and justice told in a terrifying tale. The story is based on true events that happened to the Seneca people of New York.
It’s an interesting job for a traditionalist to write a story like this as we are often accused of being “racist” or indifferent to the suffering of indigenous people, but I don’t think that’s true. I’ve always believed that the government is the problem, not the people, and that we can come together as people who value our freedoms and ways of life, no matter how different they are and push our common enemy and I want this story. to show that in a fun and important way. Maybe it will happen. I hope so.

BiC: Do you have any ideas or plans to move away from politics and more into culture? Any plans for a podcast or anything else that focuses on arts and entertainment, or culture?
MF: I wish I could. I crave it every day, to tell you the truth. I hate politics. I hate what it has done to neighbors and friends. I have a slogan “Make America friends again” and I mean it. I believe that Americans can unite against the real threat to freedom – the freedom we all want – if we could sit down and hear each other out and maybe share a beer and talk like neighbors. We need to get back to letting each other go. But the left is marching to force their ideas on everyone and we must say no! We should be more respectful of others’ differences than that. People cannot live together while one group is determined to impose their views on the other.
A perfect example is the crazy leftists who put obscene books in elementary and middle schools. Reasonable people can agree that porn is not for children! We cannot let this continue. I cover these stories almost exclusively now because they are a threat to the right to parent our children as we see fit. It is an attack on all religious and rational people that these books are given to children who exhibit sexual acts. It’s illegal! Yet, the left is on the run and this is the kind of thing that will turn into violent conflict if sensible people don’t stop it. So while I want to do more fun and culture, everything always leads to political agendas that underlie everything. And I can’t stop myself from showing it. One day, when I retire, I hope to spend my time on good things.
Right now, I’m focused on growing my Rumble channel because YouTube is already a very oppressive and hostile workplace for people who value freedom of expression. Rumble is a growing platform where there is no censorship and it’s a great experience. My stream lasts three to four hours and I am very happy with my audience. We laugh a lot and try to mix difficult and easy topics and keep laughing. To laugh at that we have to hit the left. They really hate to be laughed at but ridicule is a powerful tool and I use it freely.
BiC: How can people support you and your work?
MF: Subscribe to my Rumble here and follow me on Locals, another forum that criticizes regulation. A VIP subscription to PJ Media where I have a weekly podcast and write special columns is another good way to support my work.
I’d like to have more people in our fun conversation on the Rumble, though. I’m focused on building that. We have a great time there so check it out!
I also wrote a book a few years ago that is more relevant today and attacks parents going to board meetings to address school reform and curriculum problems. I had a similar issue with the public library in Chicago and the book I wrote about it is a great guide to teaching parents how to fight back against government agencies that violate their rights. Be quiet! The Extraordinary War Waged by Public Libraries Against the First Amendment a must for any parent who opposes a corrupt school, library, or town board. Pick it up!
So if you’re looking for a place to find politics and fun stuff as well, be sure to check out Fox’s work at PJ Media, Amazon, YouTube and Rumble.
