Breitbart.com spotlights Alfonzo Rachel: Renaissance ManJuly 9, 2012 by Jared Vallorani
When God was handing out talent, it is evident He knew fellow BigDawger AlfonZo Rachel would use every last one of those talents to glorify His Holy Name. And so He blessed AlfonZo with an abundance of talent.
With his own production company, Macho Sauce Productions (Macho Sauce being AlfonZo’s reference to “the blood of the most Manliest, Manny, Man – man to ever walk the Earth, Sea, and Sky – Jesus Christ!”), AlfonZo quickly became a conservative household name in 2008 from his “homegrown productions” on YouTube with his witty, provocative and brutally honest video rants.
He is also a multi-talented musician, martial artist, social/political humorist on PJTV (ZoNation), author, and founder of his hard rock, faith-based music project, 20 LB SLEDGE. AlfonZo’s objective with 20 LB SLEDGE is to create entertainment to “help be that salt and light.”
From AlfonZo’s official site he describes 20 LB SLEDGE as:
“The hard hittin’ music project of Macho Sauce Productions, based in L.A., California. Driven by faith and slammin’ like a patriot missile, 20 LB. SLEDGE delivers sonic body blows laced with glycemic melodies. The vocals bark with a bite of sharp-toothed ministry, fused with syrupy flows. The music motivates. It’s bombastic, it’s heavy, and it’s fun!”
In an interview with political columnist/PolitiChick Ann-Marie Murell, when asked “What do you believe is the one thing lacking on the Conservative/GOP side of politics … and how can we fix this?” AlfonZo replied:
“Creativity. Stop assuming that it’s just politicians that are screwing things up.There’s the culture that puts them there. Get creative and connect with the culture so the culture will be more apt to consider voting in people interested in protecting their freedom instead of controlling them, and knowing the difference.”
When asked in that same interview what advice he would give to Conservatives wanting to make a difference in their communities, AlfonZo replied:
“Learning how to be creative in promoting, and connecting conservative values, or connect with creative people to help do so.“
Like Andrew Breitbart, Gov. Sarah Palin and co-founder of BigDawg Music Mafia Andrew, AlfonZo believes it is through the effective use of pop culture to spread the truth that we will change our society in order to ensure our fellow Americans will never again vote into office someone as radical as the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
AlfonZo had the following to say about pop culture:
Entertainment is a powerful means to promote the leftist ideology. To promote the leftist ideology means to sell out. Sell out God, sell out country, sell out modesty, etc. It’s chalked up to being shocking and brave to challenge God, blame America, curse the job creators, admonish the U.S. military, and so on. While accusing those who didn’t sellout of being sell outs, Liberalism sells out to the easiest means to entertain people with these so-called boogeymen, where conservatives have to dig down deeper to produce competitive entertainment.
Conservatives live in the real world and aren’t much into escapism. That’s why they really don’t excel at nurturing their imagination to make interesting stories and very powerful ways to showcase them.
Conservatives typically don’t dig into enough of the feeling of what it takes to make music that people can really feel. One of the things conservatives avoid is letting their feelings govern their world view, and I agree.
America is going downhill because people want America to be governed by feelings instead of common sense and more importantly the Gospel. But conservatives should know when to let feeling be an ingredient in creating music, as well as allowing a sense of adventurism with music.
