The Philip Glass You’ve Been Reading About is not THE Philip Glass

For those of you who receive "Philip Glass" google alerts you may have noticed recent activity by someone named Philip Glass who is the head of some whack-job right-wing "organization" called the National Precinct Alliance.  Anyway, a couple periodicals should have known better than to report that "the famous composer" was the same person that was getting the Wal-Mart masses all riled up at "Tea Parties" across our land.  I can't state strongly enough that the composer Philip Glass has nothing to do with the whack-job Philip Glass.

  1. I think it’s important to differentiate between the “Philip Glasses” of the world, but watch who you call right-wing whack-jobs. Some of “us” are die-hard composer Philip Glass fans. (I don’t understand why wanting our Government to actually abide by the US Constitution is whacked, but whatever.) Name calling in general is de-humanizing and unhelpful. For what it is worth, I didn’t see ANY name calling on that “whack-job’s” web site.
    Thanks for your consideration.

  2. Elaine, Richard wasn’t calling just any conservative a whack-job. And I don’t mean to offend but in the case of that other Philip Glass, after reading up information om him, I have to agree with Richard’s label.
