Any art is always political...
Usually very conservative politicians want to claim that art should not 
be political, and deliver some examples, which show that these examples 
are political in their sense. (aka not asking the wrong questions...)

Which is very political!!!
And every artist should be aware of the posibility of this sort of 
political abuse.

If you are not aware of it, it might be political in the wrong direction.

Remember "Entartete Musik" and you know what politics can be about, you 
can't escape it.
