Maestro Dante Mantovani, recently announced as the new president of Brazil's National Arts Foundation (Funarte), has authored books on classical music, has a radio program, and is also a YouTuber.

On the channel that bears his name and has just over 6,000 subscribers, he shares conspiracy reflections and theories on politics and art. The videos are still live, although he has deleted his profiles on social networks.

Among other things, he says fascism is leftist, says fake news is a globalist concept to enforce the will of the press, calls Unesco a "propaganda machine for pedophilia."

A member of the Conservative Summit of the Americas and a student of Olavo de Carvalho, he has an entire video devoted to explaining a recent comment by the ideologue that the German philosopher Theodor W. Adorno of the Frankfurt School reportedly wrote Beatles songs.

"It's not that Adorno said that to the Beatles, 'do this, do that, do the drug release.' The theorist develops the theory, and the agent goes there and acts," he says. "In the sphere of popular music, the Beatles came to fight capitalism and to implant the wonderful communist society."

Elvis Presley and The Beatles rock would be part of a plan to beat the United States and bourgeois capitalism by destroying youth and family morale.

"Rock activates the sex-activating drug that activates the abortion industry. And the abortion industry feeds a much heavier thing, which is Satanism. John Lennon himself has openly said, more than once, that he has made a pact with Satan."
