Green Days Billie Joe Armstrong is right we should stop listening to their band

The entertainment and arts community, regardless if its high culture or low culture, has been known to throw logic aside and let their creative side of their brains run wild. This is why so many of them not only rebel against God’s Law but vote for people who are more or less like them. This includes the most unstable people that they should be locked in a padded room for their own safety and for the safety of others (Joan Crawford anyone?). Yet they are allowed to roam free. These are the people who follow their own bliss and do whatever feels good and try to work so hard to be good but yet at the same time commit their sins for their own personal pleasure.

Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong is no exception. Armstrong is a progressive radical who has supported Barack Obama twice in the 2008 and 2012 elections. He supported open socialist Bernie Sanders and then supported Hillary Clinton once Sanders lost the nomination. Armstrong also came out as bisexual and clams to be born that way. Discussing the song “Coming Clean; “It was a song about questioning myself. There are these other feelings you may have about the same sex, the opposite sex, especially being in Berkeley and San Francisco then. People are acting out what they’re feeling: gay, bisexual, transgender, whatever. And that opens up something in society that becomes more acceptable. Now we have gay marriage becoming recognized… I think it’s a process of discovery. I was willing to try anything.”

Sounds like Armstrong is another great progressive radical that would make Saul Alinksy, Norm Chomsky, and Howard Zinn proud. I don’t try to impose on conservatives, federalists, or even Trump supporters that like Green Day. After all, I am so hard on Contemporary Christian Music these days and Roger Waters himself as an admitted socialist (and I am a fan of Pink Floyd), but Armstrong is making that decision for us.

It seems that he would rather take the side of a North Korean tyrant who murders his own people and would allow him to drop missiles on America and not be punished for it should ‘Fat Boy’ try to do it. Armstrong has a right to speak out against President Trump by any means, but the way he reacted to a fan tweet is quite reviling when the fan said that people have a right to support Trump and that Billie Joe does not have the power to change minds.

I will not repeat what Armstrong said (you can read the NME.com piece), but hey he does not want people that are not like him and think like him to buy his records and/or be fans. One thing about socialists, they want them to conform to their image, even a rock star with little or no power. Be glad that Armstrong does not have that power or he too would be killing those not made in his image.

I never really liked Green Day. If I knew what the lyrics in “Longview” were, I might have turned out the song while listening to a broadcast of “Casey’s (Kasem) Top 40” from July 16, 1994. That did not help while walking to Church (not fooling), although the full six minutes of U2’s “All I Want Is You” was played at the very beginning. Hey, that had some traction on Top 40 radio according to late Radio & Records trade newspaper, and so did “Longview” which made a blunt reference to having sex with yourself. I think we are all guilty of that. At least “Blister In The Sun” (Violent Femmes) was more creative and fun about that topic or so we heard.

Keep in mind that Armstrong is from the San Francisco area of California, just as he said in the quote that I highlighted. They gave us the likes of Mayor Harvey Milk who was not openly gay but also was found out to be a pedophile and then some. No big deal, just personal gratification, and following personal bliss, regardless of who gets hurt (and not caring about it). Just a bunch of adults who are childish I say. Now California has become the progressive utopia that the likes of Armstrong should be proud of.

    “It seems that he would rather take the side of a North Korean tyrant who murders his own people and would allow him to drop missiles on America and not be punished for it should ‘Fat Boy’ try to do it.” Not supporting Trump does not automatically mean one supports N. Korea. If Trumps fire and fury is met with further fire and fury from N. Korea then you have yourselves a war. One could just as easily speculate that you are condoning war.

      Perhaps, but I can prove that most progressives sympathize with our sworn enemies. They wish they could be just like them and impose their will on most of us here in America.

      On the other hand, if someone like Obama was forced to the do the right thing, someone like Billie Joe who is cultishly loyal to the Democrat Party and might say otherwise…or maybe call him out on it.

    This author sounds like someone who voted for trump. While Billie Joe is definitely creative and free spirited, he is no fool. He knew who he wanted to represent America and why. Just because he has a different perspective than others does not mean his idealisms are ‘wrong’. Honestly this article became bias when an ‘I’ was presented.

      I may have voted for Trump, but you actually follow this site, we have other writers that don’t like Trump and have serious doubts about him. David Leech is a classic example of this. We are also supportive of replacing the Republican Party with a Federalist Party. Not necessary “Right Wing Christian” as the progressives tell you.

    It’s funny that I love all the things you hate about the band. I enjoy you hating Billie Joe and by the looks of it you don’t have a Blister in the Sun, you have a Deep Gashing Wound in a Supernova.

      LaughingClock, its Billie Joe that does not want me as a fan? Get It??!! Man some of you actually worship him. But that is why certain musicians and singers are called idols.

    I couldn’t care less about what some effeminate fake-punk rocker (current or has-been) thinks about anything. Furthermore, this he-she is famous for his-her 90s crap, and the 90s just universally sucked for rock/alt music–all so monotonous and full of awkward rage. Don’t even get me started about the musical weakness of 3-pieces. My millennial daughter–at age 5!–liked this band, I assume, because of it’s banal, ubiquitous, nursery rhyme sophistication. Still I’ll never understand why millennials embraced so much angst in their formative years. I mean, they’ve had everything handed to them. Oh, yeah, puzzle solved…sigh.

        I like Barry Manilow. He is gay

        I like Johnny Mathis. He too is gay.

        So quit your worship of Billie Joe jerk.

    Billie Joe Armstrong is vile. He kisses underage boys and girls on stage at his concerts (don’t believe me? Google Image search for “Billie Joe Armstrong kissing fan”. He makes sick “jokes” about raping little boys: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Jf0uUk0O1rA
    So yup. You’re right about him.

Conspiracy Theory

Russian meddling is about dividing us, not helping Trump

Russian meddling is about dividing us not helping Trump

Russia is meddling with our elections. They’re meddling with our entire political system. They’re meddling in our culture, freedoms, and methods of communication. I once believed they were trying to help Donald Trump become President. Now I realize they are simply elements of chaos.

Today’s report of charges filed against a Russian agent working against American interests is striking for two reasons. First, the details they’ve been able to uncover about “Project Lakhta” are astounding. Second, their strategic goal was NOT to get one person or one party into office but to sow division among the American people regardless of their political ideology.

First charge filed against Russian for interfering with elections

http://noqreport.com/2018/10/19/first-charge-filed-russian-interfering-elections/“The strategic goal of this alleged conspiracy, which continues to this day, is to sow discord in the U.S. political system and to undermine faith in our democratic institutions,” said G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “This case demonstrates that federal law enforcement authorities will work aggressively to investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of unlawful foreign influence activities whenever feasible, and that we will not stand by idly while foreign actors obstruct the lawful functions of our government. I want to thank the agents and prosecutors for their determined work on this case.”

Russia didn’t want Trump or Clinton to be President. They didn’t really care who won. All they wanted and continue to want is that no matter who wins any given election, the opposition will be so hateful about the loss that they’re willing to act out more aggressively than they otherwise would have normally.

It’s finally becoming clear that Russia’s plan is much more subverted and, frankly, ingenious than anything mainstream media or the Democrats could have ever fathomed.

They are taking advantage of our freedom of speech and the technology that allows that speech to reach the masses. They’re theory is that if they can get people on both sides of the political spectrum to voice their opinions with hate rather than understanding, it will spread. Those who have practiced thoughtful debate are now becoming raving ranters. Those who once argued their points thoughtfully are now becoming trolls.

Russia is not the only negative actor in this and the trends were already pointing to this divisiveness taking hold and spreading like a virus well before Project Lakhta was conceived, but they have definitely added to the cacophony and harnessed our vilest emotional responses to be used against us.

Their goal is to push as many people towards the fringes as possible. They want the far-left and the far-right to grow. They want debates to turn into arguments, then arguments to turn into blind rage. From there, they speculated that we would be the initiators of our own destruction.

They may be right.

From the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation debacle to the illegal immigration debate to anything that has to do with gun rights, Americans on both sides of the aisle are becoming more passionate. That’s leading many to become unhinged. When enough people are unhinged, any hopes of civil discourse can be forgotten. We are getting to the point where we no longer discuss our differences. We simply try to shout our perspectives louder than those opposed to us.

The left is the easier target. I’m not just saying that as a conservative. I say that because their position on issues make it easier for them to be emotional when news breaks about an event important to them. This is why those who blame racism for everything are not only seeing racism in every aspect of American life but are feeling justified in practicing their own versions of racism.

We now see that Russia’s goal wasn’t to get Trump elected. It was to make one side or the other absolutely hate the outcome regardless of who won. They aren’t pushing a political agenda. They’re pushing a cultural apocalypse.

The NPC meme triggers leftists so much because it’s too close to the truth

The NPC meme triggers leftists so much because its too close to the truth

Leftists have been called cucks, snowflakes, libtards, and a multitude of other names assigned to them by conservatives and internet trolls for years. These labels often annoyed them, but the latest popular insult has triggered them like no other. It’s the NPC meme and it’s spreading like wildfire across the internet.

Twitter has even started banning people using the meme because it is “dehumanizing.”

But here’s the thing: previous labels may have been funny or even harsh, but the NPC meme strikes so close to home that it’s actually becoming a threat. It is being called dehumanizing, but it’s the closest a label has come to hitting the nail on the head when it comes to the unhinged left of today.

A non-player character, or NPC, is a character in a video game that is controlled by the computer. Some are influential to the outcome of the game but most will wander around the video game’s world doing random things and generally taking up space.

The use of the NPC meme in reference to leftists is tantamount to calling them unthinking automatons that echo each other without understanding beyond the collectivist, Marxist vision they claim to share. This label is quickly becoming the ultimate insult because it is, for all intents and purposes, true.

Thoughtful conservatives have known for years that mainstream media and social media are echo chambers for popular leftist mantras and incessant anger towards the boogeyman of the day. For over two years, that boogeyman has been President Trump, who has made the left so enraged they cannot see anything other than the hatred they feel towards him and those who support him.

Anything positive he does is dismissed while anything bad he does is blown out of proportions. This destructive cycle is so rampant, the echo chamber is experience a feedback loop. They no longer hear or know anything outside of their collective.

They have become NPCs controlled by the leftist puppet masters.

If it didn’t strike so close to home, it wouldn’t be getting such a vicious response.

Elizabeth Warren releases DNA proof that she’s at least 1/1024th Native American. Twitter responds appropriately.

Elizabeth Warren releases DNA proof that shes at least 11024th Native American Twitter responds appr

There’s a strategist in Senator Elizabeth Warren’s ear who thought it was a good idea to release results of a DNA test showing a likelihood that one of her very distant descendants was Native American. The advice taken. The results were predictable.

The test shows she is at most 1/32nd Native American if she is six generations from her Native American ancestor. That’s her best-case scenario. At worst, her ancestor was as far back as ten generations which would make her 1/1024th Native American. To put that into perspective, if she were to honor her heritage by engaging in 1/1024th of a four-hour Native American Sweat, she’d be in and out of the lodge in 14 seconds.

Elizabeth Warren releases results of DNA test on Native American ancesty

https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/politics/2018/10/15/warren-addresses-native-american-issue/YEUaGzsefB0gPBe2AbmSVO/story.htmlThe inherent imprecision of the six-page DNA analysis could provide fodder for Warren’s critics. If her great-great-great-grandmother was Native American, that puts her at 1/32nd American Indian. But the report includes the possibility that she’s just 1/1024th Native American if the ancestor is 10 generations back.

Undergoing the test and releasing the results reveal how seriously Warren is taking the attacks from Trump, who has been able to effectively caricature and diminish his national foes via nicknames and conspiracy theories. Trump pushed then President Barack Obama into releasing the long form of his birth certificate to prove what most knew was already true: He was born in America.

This publicity stunt was designed to let everyone know she’s serious about running for President in 2020. She wanted to be able to call out President Trump on his promise to give $1,000,000 to charity if she could prove Native American heritage. He won’t pay, of course, which will get plenty of headlines calling him a deal-breaking scoundrel, but was it really if for her to be the focus of even more jokes on social media?

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter. You decide:
