“Love Me, I’m a Liberal”
Since a slew of hard-hitting documentaries (The Dust Bowl, The Central Park Five, How to Survive a Plague, etc.) has us in a strident, old-timey muck-raking temper, please enjoy Phil Ochs’ perfect, bitttttter 1966 self-hating protest song about the apathetic left.
I go to civil rights rallies
And I put down the old D.A.R.
I love Harry and Sidney and Sammy
I hope every colored boy becomes a star
But don’t talk about revolution
That’s going a little bit too far
So love me, love me, love me, I’m a liberal
