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.

      Giovanni Gentile is the true fascist. Hey, I am the one that is not supposed to buy a Green Day record.

    “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.

      Finally some common sense. But hey SteChatte, he gave me material to write about. I feel you, however.

        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.
