In the spirit of Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who famously suggested that social justice warrior LeBron James “shut up and dribble,” why can’t today’s singers cease lecturing from the stage and just sing their songs?
The latest example of a performer exploring a platform that was gained not by their political views but by their ability to carry a tune, Canadian country-pop singer Lindsey Ell gave a shout-out to “all the women fighting for rights.” A message clearly provoked by the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.
“This song goes out to every single woman fighting for their rights right now,” she said. “I love you guys so much.”
The dedication was part of the “Fox & Friends” kick-off of the July 4th holiday weekend, with Ell performing in the American Summer Concert series — never mind that she’s a Canuck.
Ell made no reference to the Supreme Court ruling that effectively undid nearly 50 years of judicial activism in that it sent the issue of abortion back to the states. An act that is the very epitome of democracy.
Her drummer was rocking an RBG shirt, which represents the initials of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died in 2020 while Donald Trump was in office. Ironically, while the left revered Ginsburg when she was alive, some criticized her after Roe was overturned for not retiring when President Barack Obama was still in office. As it was, she was replaced by Justice Amy Coney Barrett, one of the jurists who voted to undo Roe.
The singer’s Twitter feed shows few if any signs of politics and there was no mention of the Supreme Court decision when it came down. She did plug her “Fox & Friends” appearance:

Of course, her cursory mention of women fighting for their rights only drew attention because it occurred on Fox News.
Ell’s subtlety was a far cry from the antics seen by a singer named Halsey, who was performing in Arizona recently and dumbed on many of her fans, who walked out in “sickening” numbers.
“Here in Arizona, you guys got to promise me that you’re gonna do that work so that the person to the left of you and to the right of you has that right for the rest of their lives,” she said from the stage, speaking of abortions. “If you don’t like it, you can go home right now — I don’t care.”
She took to Twitter afterward to tweet that the “downside of doing outdoor venues: no door to hit them on the way out.”
But she would top that while performing in Dallas, boasting from the stage about having an abortion herself and how it “saved” her life, after attacking Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, screaming: “F*ck Greg Abbott!” and “F*ck Ken Paxton!”
(Texas has a “trigger law” in place that will ban all abortions starting 30 days after the Supreme Court’s decision.)
