The other night, I was watching one of my favorite shows on the television, VH1 Classic’s We are the 80s. The video for Starship’s We Built This City came on, and while watching it, I noticed something disturbing.
And I don’t mean the fact that I was watching the video for We Built This City.
Anyway, during the video, the band is playing the song for a group of diverse young people. As they play, lights flash and the band and audience are transported to various places in America, including, the Lincoln Memorial:
And we go to a close-up of Honest Abe’s memorial:
And then, all of a sudden lights flash, Abe springs to life and starts to dance:
Is it me, or does that look nothing like Lincoln?
Here’s another look of the memorial come to life:
I don’t know if it’s just me, but that looks more like Robert E. Lee:
I’ve either uncovered a vast historical conspiracy, or aside from being reformed hippies, the members of Starship were Confederate sympathizers.
