Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996

The White reactionary's guide to Don McLean's 1971 hit, American Pie.


Don McLean said goodbye to those quintessentially American values like Miss America and pie. I'll use America as another word for USA, as McLean does, rather than acknowledge the other vast areas of land in the western hemisphere. Pie was apparently invented in America. Before that, all fruit was cooked loose on a cookie sheet and got all over the oven. More and deeper on the subject of pie, later.

Jeff Dorchen dusts off the turntable for a Moment of Truth exploring the sexual pathology and racial fears behind Don McLean's song American Pie - from the seductive appeal of Satanic anal sex with Mick Jagger to the cuckolding influence of Black music in pop culture - and finds the nation still replaying the politics of 1959, good ol' boys, cucks, dark Others - all down at the levee, waiting for the flood.
