Editor’s Note: The Bruce Springsteen article is a parody.
I confess that I once camped out overnight on Nashville, TN sidewalks to get Bruce Springsteen concert tickets. This was in the mid-1980s when most of our Alt-Right folks weren’t even born. The Springsteen concert was performed in the Ryman Auditorium (Grand Ole Opry House) and wasn’t bad. Bruce Springsteen was one of the best American rock-and-roll performers way back then and his songs didn’t feature preachy, political correct, anti-Southern, anti-White lyrics. In this concert “The Boss” did spend a few minutes pushing some Liberal Left causes which I found annoying and others heckled him and told him to “Go back to New York”.
Bruce Springsteen is now pushing 70-years-old, trying to stay “relevant” and insisting on going on concert tours pretending it’s still 1978. “The Boss” is going down the predicable route of has been pop singers, former celebrities still trying get some Variety ink pushing the Lib Left cause of the day. What’s the cause of the day, Bruce? Well, it’s opposing all things Donald Trump including opposing President Trump’s efforts to keep out Islamic extremist/terrorists from ISIS, Al Qaeda terrorized countries/places.
Bruce Springsteen insists that he could have made the difference and defeated Donald Trump by championing the cause of mass Islamic immigration migrations from countries like Afghanistan, Somalia and Yemen.
Bruce “the Boss” Springsteen seems unaware or unconcerned that these same Afghan/Pakistan Taliban tribesmen have banned all music, including all Bruce Springsteen music!
Let’s make the UN make Bruce Springsteen a special cultural envoy to Afghanistan so he’ll be stuck in a place where he can’t perform his music or even talk about politics!
Can’t we get our Islamic friends to issue a male version of the burka for has been Hollywood celebrities so they can’t show their faces or speak in public?
The good news is that has been Hollywood celebrities like Bruce Springsteen aren’t able to dictate American Presidential elections winners. Increasing numbers of Americans, particularly in the American South don’t give a rat’s ass what “The Boss” has to say about our immigration policies, Islam or anything else. A few other elderly rock stars of the ’70s like KISS’s Gene Simmons are suggesting that entertainers simply shut up about politics and, well, entertain, sing, dance, do a few juggling tricks.
In better times, folks like Bruce Springsteen were confined to the role of court jesters, and were allowed to make fools of themselves to earn their supper. I now admit that the local Southern boys in the audience that mid-1980s night in the Ryman Auditorium were right when they said …
“Shut up Bruce.”
Note: “The Boss” performed for Hillary in Philadelphia the night before she lost Pennsylvania to President Trump.
