Is This The MPLA, I Thought It Was The USA…

Johnny Rotten – lead singer of the Sex Pistols – joins the Velvet Underground’s Mo Tucker among punk icons supporting Trump:

“What I dislike is the left-wing media in America are trying to smear the bloke as a racist, and that’s completely not true,” the 61-year-old said. “There’s many, many problems with him as a human being, but he’s not that, and there just might be a chance something good will come out of that situation, because he terrifies politicians.”

Mr. Lydon said Mr. Trump is like a “political Sex Pistol” whose purpose is to rattle the status quo. After co-host Piers Morgan described Mr. Trump as “the archetypal anti-establishment character,” Mr. Lydon added: “Dare I say, a possible friend.”

Back in the glory days of blogging, one of our sayings was “conservative is the new punk”.  In our society, the way it is today, standing for a fairly timeless establishment against an utterly temporal one certainly qualifies

  1. This is interesting.

    Just read an article about Denzel Washington discussing how President Trump saved us from becoming an Orwellian police state.

    Some celebrities get it.

  2. I saw that story awhile back too, BH. Turns out it’s not true.

    I suspect Denzel is a lefty, but he keeps his politics to himself.

  3. An inadvertant glance at how chummy and close the elite Libs are. The Daily Beast mourns the loss of 80 jobs set aside for liberal opinion shapers, fallen warriors in the battle against Americans who dared to vote for Trump (or Romney. Or McCain. Or Bush):
    Just how tightly knit and unreprentative of real America are our MSM elites?
    Especially hard-hit were family members of the New York Times’ crack White House correspondent Maggie Haberman. Her husband Dareh Gregorian lost his job as the Daily News’ politics editor, and her brother Zach Haberman is no longer the paper’s head of content.
