Deport Justin Bieber? Why The Petition Is PointlessBy: Toni Matthews-El - January 29, 2014
Many people who cannot stand Justin Bieber’s music, voice, face or behavior absolutely understand the sentiment that went into the formation of a petition that is meant to get the young Canadian deported. Given his recent behavior, some feel that he has more than worn out his welcome in the United States.
At least those not willing to be honest with themselves.
The loathing of the teen idol goes all the way back to his Youtube days, where this high-pitched, pimply faced little boy with a mop-top was crooning into his webcam, hoping people would notice.
He eventually garnered a large online following and became something of a major internet celebrity. He then managed to crossover into offline, mainstream teen idol territory.
He was a sensation, at least with the millions of teenage and pre-teen girls who loved and continue love him.
Make no mistake: People do not like Justin Bieber in America, and have not for some time. It’s just that now people have latched onto his behavior as justification for wanting him to leave the country.
What is amazing about this demand isn’t that anyone wants Bieber to leave, since some of us would probably prefer he had never crossed the border in the first place.
It’s that should the petition be read by the White House and the wishes of the signers eventually granted, it wouldn’t change the fact that there are people far far worse than Justin Bieber who will remain right here in the United States when he is gone.
Murderers of children, drug traffickers, women beaters, people who develop complicated Ponzi schemes that will rob thousands of hard-working Americans of their money, people who will be buying and using fake credit cards created with numbers gained through the Target breech. And many many more various forms of human scum. All still here while people congratulate themselves for sending a snotty nose brat, who will still be very rich at the end of the day, home to Canada.
Yes, every terrible one of them will be here, continuing to make this country even worse than a Justin Bieber could ever dream of doing.
The petition to deport Justin Bieber is meant to be an expression of Americans who’ve had enough of one young man’s debauchery. Understood. After all, his antics are childish and it’s likely he did break the law within our borders.
So why is this petition pointless?
If Americans have time to write and sign petitions for popstars and reality television shows, things are either really good in this country or we are embarrassingly out of touch with reality, a society unable to prioritize what is really important.
Hint: It’s NOT Justin Bieber.
