Alternative Right: “Gaza Wrecking Ball” coverage

Last year, following her now-infamous appearance on the VMAs, both co-editors of Alternative Right weighed in on Miley Cyrus’s pop-culture galvanizing antics, which could be summarized as a liberal indulgence in “retarded sexuality and bad poetry,” as one notable critic of the legendary Brit-metal band Spinal Tap might have put it.
At the time, we were both none-too-approving of the once-Miss Montana’s full-on meth-whore act. But now I suppose we have to make something of an about-face, and give Miley her props. We assailed her lack of imagination in recapitulating yet again the all too familiar sexed-up, good-girl-gone-bad routine, but it seems that her last two videos have apparently had such a far-reaching effect that they now may alter the future of the Holy Land, perhaps even ushering in Armageddon and the End of Days, which might just endear her to the same evangelical Christian population in America that she alienated so badly by her performance at the VMAs.

It seems that an enterprising and shapely young Israeli settler woman named Orit Arfa has lovingly crafted two would-be video parodies of Miss Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball.” I say “would-be” parodies, because the performances, while absurd, seem completely sincere. Aren’t parodies supposed to be intentionally funny?
