An "Festival of demagogy" poignancy criticism on Bono-appearance in brazil

from Klaus Hart

the singer Bono Vox from the Irish Band U2 in Europe is known as more agreeable, charismatic do-gooder. In brazil but has is Image now heaviness damage taken: Bono had by his both concerts the because of corruption and force-misusage struck government from head of state Lula bolstered. Culture-Critics of national flung him subsequently politically demagogy and hypocrisy before. Also his fans show deep disappointed.

Whole brazil received Bono and his band with open arms - in Sao Paulo rejoiced one he on the both concerts, and self in the remote-most amazona-village on the live broadcast in the television. After all as Bono forthwith to the arrival in the presidents-palace to head of state Lula sped and of it politics over the green trefoil laudet, not an sole word of criticism about on the engraving man-legal position fall would let, made he not only in the media wonder and skepticism wide. Finally puts the Lula-government deep in the swamp from corruption and force-misusage.

And as Bono then also still its concerts with circuitously politically affidavits spiced, at all praise-images of head of state Lula on the grand-projector would let, was it with the patience of much brazilian beyond. Marcos Goncalves ,serial story column-boss from brazil greatest quality-newspaper "Folha dE Sao Paulo", brings the criticism from the media of on the point:

"I find, an Rocksinger ought displacement to the authorities true, above all head of state Lula and of it party through corruption burdened are. After all Bono ignored this all, criticized and behind-asks nothing, lends Lula in a choice-year his prestige, behaved he as of it helper by the re-election. Bono knows the reality of brazil, applies his stay meanwhile for that personal marketing, derailed in demagogy and hypocrisy. Bono heard to the money- and politics-engineery of this earth. His concerts here were real an Festival of demagogy. One has him hissed - the people here are however not dumb."

As Bono in Sao Paulo was, revolts straight the inmates from five prison the town against inhumanely arrest-terms. Numerous people demonstrated on the street against it, that in brazil the torment furthermore daily is and that straight an police-colonel acquitted became, who an massacre on prisoners conducted had. Over hundred trapped were from of it special-unit kill been. And in Rio dE Janeiro terrorized neo-feudal militias of organizes crime short in front of carnival straight again once Slum-inhabitant, kill numerous innocently man. After all Bono was silent to the torment even so how to the bandits - dictatorship in the shantytowns, would have on the protest the man-on-the-right-activists natural partake able, how also serial story column-boss Marcos Goncalves accents:

"Bono would have he with whole other people talk must - however he is even fascinated from the spheres the force. He permit however not easy ignore, what here in the land passes, this conditions also still lean. After all to Europe is he with the aura of great revolutionary return, the always adamantine on the side the third world stands. With it applies he the ignorance the first world over brazil from."

We love brazil carnival, called Bono likewise in the bulks. Because in the carnival hit he realms and arms, old people and boy, left and rights. This be good so, because around the poorness to beat down, must all collaborate. Still so an phrase, Marcos Goncalves more as cavernous found.

"In Europe cultivates one myths over brazil, over the carnival, the football - and works out the brazil - cliches become from Bono also still added. Towards these concerts here is he the public thought over him alter. We culture - critics must behind the external, the appearance-even] look - and then disclosed even by Bono huge demagogy."

Bono is an populist, the the control over is maunder lost has, an monotone and absurd Blablabla , judge other culture-critics.
Many fans excites over the extreme high entry-price for the concerts, from two divide into three parts of present brazilian least-reward up. The audience stands therefore nearly only from middle- and upper class.

The concert the Rolling Stones some days ahead on the Copacabana was for nothing. The thick, tediously, humorless Bono have not an tenth of Sex-Appeals from Mick Jagger, no kind of spontaneity and sang the high music also still false, was it on the brazilian culture-sides besides.

Like I have mentioned in this forum quite many times before:

Bono is an ass licker - he goes for the famous people / wants to be seen with the famous people / famous politicians / business people.....

He wants power / to lick famous peoples ass.....

It is exactly whta's going to ruin U2, musically and the group itself, 'cause the other ones are becoming more or less sick and tired of it (maybe not the Edge - he seems like an ass licker as well)....

And it is exactly what Keith has told Mick not to become - a politicians ass licker - thank godness Mick didn't......

Because he's been one of the greatest, most important people in entertainment for forty plus years? Perhaps?

(And because he wanted it. In case someone wanted to add that Keith belongs there too. Keith has never wanted the knighthood. Mick did. Nothing wrong with that.)
