BOB: ‘Brilliantly Difficult’ documentary film OUT NOW

A great documentary charting the work of political cartoonist, and cultural interpreter extraordiaire Bob Moran, former cartoonist for the Telegraph, has been made available here. It is a truly inspiring account that has helped thousands (millions?) around the world especially during the past two and a half years.

Since this is a theology blog, it would be remiss of me to fail to point out that characters like BOB and his wonderful family are the type of people God raises up “for such a time as this” – and that their courage gives courage, just as in days of old.

The song playing during the opening credits, “Anti-Fascist Blues” is linked below as are the great protest lyrics.

“Anti-Fascist Blues” Lyrics:

Everybody head down, pick yourself a pronoun

Join the resistance on government assistance

Stop all the hate as you advocate violence

Block and suppress anyone you want silenced

Take what you want ‘cause what you want is what you’re owed

Call everyone a fascist ’til they’re all controlled Preach in the street for the communist party

Pro choice, no voice, never mind the heart beat

Dictate, race bait, agitate, mandate

Dress in drag and burn the flag then run to find a safe space

Tell us how you feel until we give you what you need

Call everyone oppressive ’til they’re on their knees

Impeach free speech, better dye your hair pink

TV, phone screen, it’s better if you don’t think

Debt to university, segregate diversity

Give yourself a ribbon every time you face adversity

Find another problem, tell yourself you’re not alone

Tell everyone who’s straight that they’re all transphobe

Defund police. No guns, oh please

Fight for your right to start a war until there’s no peace

Take it down, tear it up, it’s in the name of progress

Make the rule you never lose ’til everything is lawless

Tell me what to think, and how to feel, and where to go

‘Cause everyone’s a fascist ’til they’re all controlled

Find your path in life but make it socio or psycho

Nonsense, wokeness, you’re gonna lose your mind though

Bigotry, insanity, an ally, or an enemy

There’s too much masculinity so wave goodbye to family

Represent the one percent who want to overthrow

’Til everybody lives to an autonomous zone

Act tough, steel stuff, smash another window

Loot store, get more, grab another brick, throw She/Her/He/Him/They/Them/Xe/Xem

Women are the men now and the men are now the women

Make yourself a slave until you feel like you are free

Dig yourself a grave for The American Dream
