It's All Entertainment 

Student Body President Deven Anderson says, "Being they are a performing artist group they're merely here to entertain us. That's nothing serious in content, they're here to entertain."

I feel sorry for a student body that has such an asinine student president.

And isn't it adorable how liberals love to gloss over the ugliness of their entertainment, and all the harmful attitudes and values they perpetuate, when it serves their purposes?

Entertainment is just entertainment, the minds of people are exclusively shaped by the formal, academic articles they read, and nothing more. Specially, we can note, the minds of young asinine student presidents.

I don't suppose this guy realizes he has just incidentally implied that all cultural studies departments and faculty, including any at his own university, are a useless expense in academia. What is there to analyze in "entertainment" culture if it is all fluff? Surely, E!magazine can supply us with all the political and critical analysis we need about entertainment and how un-serious it is.
