Bruce Springsteen is “embarrassed” to be an American

bruce-springsteen

Good grief, what a drama queen. When Obama was president for eight years I, nor anyone I know, was ever embarrassed to be an American. It’s going to be a LOOOOOONG four years for the libtards.

From Fox News: Bruce Springsteen, a once proud American with his song “Born in the USA” said at a concert in Australia he’s embarrassed to be an American.

The 67-year-old addressed the crowd as “embarrassed Americans” referring to President Trump in the White House in a newly-surfaced clip from his show in Melbourne Monday night. He sang a cover of “Don’t Hang Up” mocking Trump’s phone call with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

He said, “We stand before you embarrassed Americans. This is a song from 1965 by The Orlons and we’re going to use it to send a letter back home.”

Springsteen also announced his band is a part of the resistance against the Trump administration.

This isn’t the first time the singer has taken aim at Trump. During a wide-ranging interview on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast in January, Springsteen said he doubts Trump “is simply competent enough” to be president.

“It’s simply the fear of, ‘Is someone simply competent enough to do this particular job?'” Springsteen told Maron. “Forget about where they are ideologically. (Yeah, riiiiiiiight.) Do they simply have the pure competence to be put in a position of such responsibility?”

Springsteen said he planned to do his best to play a “very, very small part” in trying to ensure America maintains its ideals. He also added that there were “plenty of good, solid folks that voted for Donald Trump” and the outcome of the election is that Americans can now see that there are millions of people in the United States who think differently than they do.

Business owner to CNN, liberals and Springsteen: ‘We’ve had it with you idiots’

lake-oswego-sign

From Fox News: A small business owner in Oregon has a message for CNN, ignorant liberals and Bruce Springsteen: “We’ve had it with you idiots.”

Kevin Kerwin is the proprietor of Kevin the Geek Computer Repair store in Lake Oswego. He’s also one of the few conservatives around town. “Oregon is a very beautiful state, but it’s infested with liberals,” Kevin tells me.

Kevin was especially bothered by the militant liberals who tried to burn down Portland following the 2016 presidential election. And it did not help matters when Bruce Springsteen, one of his favorite singers, raged against Trump’s supporters and suggested the president-elect appealed to un-American tendencies.

“When you let that genie out of the bottle – bigotry, racism, intolerance – they don’t go back into the bottle that easily, if they go back in at all,” Springsteen said on the “WTF” podcast. “Whether it’s a rise in hate crimes, people feeling they have license to speak and behave in ways that previously were considered un-American and are un-American. That’s what he’s appealing to.”

Just hearing him say that kind of stuff makes me mad, Kevin said.

But when four black suspects kidnapped and tortured a mentally challenged white man and pummeled him on Facebook Live – well – Kevin decided enough was enough. “When that kidnapping happened – that was one of the last straws,” he said.

So Kevin posted a giant sign on the front of his computer repair shop – and it’s pretty epic, folks.

To all the ignorant liberals including Bruce Springsteen…The 4 people who kidnapped & tortured a disabled teenager just because he supports Donald Trump – Just shows everyone you are a party of complete morons. I’m embarrassed to call you Americans. Go straight to Hell where you belong. We’ve had it with you idiots.”

For the record, there’s no clear evidence the young man who was tortured was actually a Trump supporter. However, it’s clear the victim’s attackers were displeased with not only Trump but white people, too.

Oh, he also had a message for CNN, calling them “Comedy News Network, Fake News all the Time, Propaganda for Liberals.”

It’s not the first time Kevin has posted a message on the front of his store – and it’s not the first time he’s posted his true feelings regarding liberals. “They’ve all boycotted my store, (but) I don’t care what they think,” he said. “I’ve got a lot of great conservatives here and they support my shop.”

Entertainers and professors who pimp for Obama

The following is by no means an exhaustive list.

For other pro-Obama “celebrities,” go to FOTM’s “Leftwing Pathology” page and look for the post links colored brown!

Entertainers who pimp for Obama:

1. Singer Bruce Springsteen ($200 million net worth), who vowed earlier this year not to actively campaign for Obama, reversed course and performed for Captain Hope and Change in Ohio. See DCG’s post, HERE.

2. Actor Jack Black ($40 million net worth) is calling Mitt Romney a “master flip-flopper”while ignoring Obama’s litany of flips and flops. This is the same Jack Black who, at the MTV 2009 Video Music Awards, prayed to the “Dear Dark Lord Satan” to “grant tonight’s nominees with continued success in the music industry” (see pic below).

3. Rapper Jay-Z ($475 million net worth), who admitted he backs Obama because he’s black, cut a campaign video saying Obama inspired people to take a stand in politics (whatever that means).

4. Actresses Eva Longoria ($35 million net worth), Scarlett Johansson ($35 million net worth) and Kerry Washington ($3 million net worth) spoke at the Democratic National Convention and are on a video roasting the Romney/Ryan ticket for its alleged anti-women stances (translation: anti women’s “right” to kill the unborn).

5. Teen slut Miley Cyrus ($120 million net worth), who gave her actor boyfriend Liam Hemsworth a penis birthday cake (see pic below), formally endorsed Obama yesterday.

6. Actress-singer Barbra Streisand ($340 million net worth), who has performed at fundraisers for Obama, emailed Democrats asking for cash, calling a potential GOP takeover “a disaster for America.” When Romney is elected President, I hope she’ll actually carry out her promise of moving to France this time.

Professors who pimp for Obama:

1. Alan Abramowitz, a political science professor at Emory University who is billed as a “widely known expert on national politics,” contributed $250 to Obama on two separate occasions in 2008. This month, Abramowitz told Bloomberg News that the recent drop in the nation’s unemployment rate is “good news for Obama” and blunts Romney’s political momentum. Many news organizations have published Abramowitz’s analyses, including the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, National Journal and The Hill.

2. Garrison Nelson, a professor at the University of Vermont, donated $250 to Obama earlier this year. Nelson was quoted in June 2011 about Obama’s emphasis on his support for the auto industry bailout: “This is to hit Romney where he lives.” Four years ago, he commented on Obama’s favorable poll numbers in Vermont against then-Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.): “It’s the Obama phenomenon. Obama has really taken hold here. We’re caught in the wave of support he’s getting.”

3. Peter Ricchiuti, professor of finance at Tulane University donated $3,000 to Obama in 2012 and $1,000 in 2008. He has also given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), the Democratic National Committee and Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.). In 2011, he told ABC News that Obama’s job creation initiatives were “all good ideas.” Ricchiuti told the Mississippi Daily Journal in January 2009 that fears that the incoming Obama administration would usher in a new socialist state were unfounded. “I think he’s a free-market guy,” Ricchiuti said at the time.

4. Timothy Jost, a professor at Washington and Lee University, has given thousands of dollars to Obama and Democratic campaign committees. Identified in news articles as “an expert on healthcare” and a supporter of Obamacare, Jost is critical of Romney’s plan to repeal Obamacare, telling the Boston Globe last year that it is “unconstitutional.”

5. Robert Axelrod, political science professor at the University of Michigan, donated to Obama in 2008 and 2011. In a 2010 Washington Post article titled, “Obama Steps Up Confrontation,” Axelrod says confrontation with the opposing party is initially necessary in order to ultimately strike a bipartisan deal. The article reported that he is not related to David Axelrod, who is a senior adviser to Obama.

6. David Yellen, dean and professor of law at Loyola University in Chicago, donated to Obama in 2008 and 2011. In 2004, he gave to both Howard Dean and Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.). Yellen told The Washington Times in 2010 that the scandal involving former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) was not a significant problem (“not a big deal”) for the White House. Yellen said his donation does not affect his objectivity.

“Forward and Away We Go”

Yesterday, during a rally for Obama in Ohio, Springsteen joked that Obama had called him recently and said there was a “song gap” with Mitt Romney and asked him to step up and fill it. “You’ve come to the right man,” he joked that he told Obama. The Boss then claimed that the president suggested he use the campaign’s slogan, “Forward.”

“I said, ‘forward? You’re not giving me much to work with there!’” Springsteen said.

So here, then, is the responsive song he said he wrote for the campaign, as performed. Springsteen interrupted himself frequently to explain that he’d had a lot of trouble finding words to rhyme with the president’s name, including in the final verse, which he said he had to end early for that reason.

“Forward and Away We Go” By Bruce Springsteen

I kissed your sister then I kissed your mamma [crowd: Forward!]

Usually this time of day I’m in my pajamas [Forward!]

Well, let’s vote for the man who got Osama [Forward!]

Forward! And away we go.

I came to Ohio looking for a date [Forward!]

We kissed and I said it’s a hell of a state. [Forward!]

We made love, but it wasn’t so great [Forward!]

Forward! And away we go.

Smiling Joe, he really brought the drama [Forward!]

Tuesday, Romney was schooled by Obama [Forward!]

Forward! And away we go.

Away we go indeed…welfare spending has increased 32% in the last four years, the labor market is still suffering, almost 47 million are on food stamps, and we have achieved a national debt level of over $16 TRILLION. I’ve had enough of this “forward” movement.

Jason Mattera and the Book Hollywood Elites Don’t Want You to Read

Hollywood Hypocrites – NY Times Best Seller

This is sort of a book report on something I have not read…. but after watching the 29 year old author’s highly entertaining 55 minute presentation to large group of high school students on BookTV, I’m dying to get my hands on a copy of “Hollywood Hypocrites: The Devastating Truth About Obama’s Biggest Backers.

Using the Look Inside feature on Amazon.com, each chapter is documented with numerous URLs to back up his charges against such luminaries as Ariana Huffington, Harrison Ford, Barbara Streisand, Leonardo Di Caprio, Matt Damon…. and that’s just for starters!  Here’s a very brief montage of his hilarious  BookTV presentation.  Enjoy!

Is Bruce Springsteen a hypocrite?

Not a greedy man…

Bruce Springsteen: Bankers Are ‘Greedy Thieves’

HuffPo:  Rocker Bruce Springsteen touched on a nerve of widespread discontent with the financiers and bankers at a Berlin concert on Wednesday, railing against them as “greedy thieves” and “robber barons.”

Springsteen, a singer-songwriter dubbed “The Boss” who has long championed populist causes, played to a sold-out crowd at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, singing from his album “Wrecking Ball” and speaking about tough economic times that have put people out of work worldwide and led to debt crises in Greece and other countries.

“In America, a lot of people have lost their jobs,” said Springsteen, 62, who performed for three hours to some 58,000 fans in the packed stadium that hosted the 1936 Olympics and the 2006 World Cup final.

“But also in Europe and in Berlin, times are tough,” he added, speaking in fluent German. “This song is for all those who are struggling.” He then introduced “Jack of All Trades”, a withering attack on bankers that includes the lyrics: “The banker man grows fat, working man grows thin.”

In “Shackled and Drawn”, Springsteen sings about “Gambling man rolls the dice, working man pays the bill. It’s still fat and easy up on banker’s hill. Up on banker’s hill the party’s going strong, down here below we’re shackled and drawn.

With “Easy Money”, Springsteen rips into the “fat cats” who will “just think it’s funny … when you’re whole world comes tumbling down.” In “Death to My hometown”, Springsteen assails the “greedy thieves and robber barons” who “destroyed our families, factories and they took our homes.” In the song “Wrecking Ball”, he sings: “Hold tight to your anger.”

Read the rest of the article here.

Well, the bankers haven’t shackled Springsteen too much.  He’s worth an estimated $200 million and lives in this fabulous mansion in New Jersey.

Want to go to one of his concerts on his “Wrecking Ball” tour?  Hold tight to your wallet – tickets start at $130.00!

Some might say Bruce is the greedy one.  Why is he charging so much for tickets?  Does he really need more money – isn’t $200 million enough?  According to Rosanne Barr, he’s past the $100 million level and should be be-headed.  Presumably that only applies to the evil bankers and Republicans, of course.
