Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong is right, we should stop listening to their band

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.

    • Don McCullen

      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.

Ken Ham on how science confirms the Bible

Ken Ham on how science confirms the Bible

One of my biggest pet peeves is the attempt by atheists to use “science” to disprove the Bible. It’s unfortunate on many levels, not the least of which being Pascal’s Wager, but the strangest part is how much of science must be ignored in order to make the claim a Biblical worldview runs counter to modern science.

Some may object to this topic being part of mostly political news site, but it’s been more widely covered in recent years by liberal sites attempting to paint the Biblical worldview in a negative light, so it’s good to give equal time to the counterarguments.

There are better videos than Ken Ham’s discussion on the topic, but few are more easily understood. It’s well worth the hour.

Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician. And she’s a Democrat.

Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician And shes a Democrat

Racism is owned by the Republican Party. That’s the narrative the press and their handlers, the Democratic Party, wants America to believe. Someone forgot to get that memo to Michigan state representative Bettie Cook Scott.

Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott on Asian opponent: ‘Don’t vote for the ching-chong!’

https://www.metrotimes.com/news-hits/archives/2018/08/16/detroit-rep-bettie-cook-scott-on-asian-opponent-dont-vote-for-the-ching-chongMore than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).

Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”

My Take

There are two important takeaways here. First is the hypocrisy surrounding Scott, a (formerly) rising star in the Michigan Democratic Party. If the comments she made were spoken by anyone other than a Democrat, the calls wouldn’t be for an apology. The press and social groups would be calling for her to step down and jump into a hole somewhere.

The second point is that in the real world, the one not seen through the lens of liberals and the media, racism exists everywhere. It is not owned by Republicans, conservatives, old people, white people, or any other classification. One can even make a valid argument that it’s no more prominent in the Republican Party than it is in the Democratic Party that supports groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Racism must be eliminated from society. That will never happen as long as so many people naively believe it only exists in the minds of certain people on the political right. It exists everywhere. Accept that and we can work to make it stop.

Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty – Part II

Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty Part II

Leftists incessantly issue lists of demands for the restriction of Liberty, It’s time to reverse the trend towards freedom.

This is our second part of our series of what we on the Pro-Liberty Right want for the preservation of Liberty. Part I is here.

6. The Left needs to stop trying to control private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. [aka ‘enhanced’ or ‘Universal’]

If there is one constant in the Liberty grabber universe, it’s that half of them are incessantly calling for gun confiscation while the rest deny they are calling for gun confiscation. They also love to parrot the line that it would be impossible to round-up everyone’s guns as a way of deflecting the issue. Except that those on the Pro-liberty side thought the same thing in the UK and Australia. Their Liberty grabber nightmare began with gun registration, under the solemn promise that it wouldn’t lead to gun confiscation. [Sound familiar?] Then of course at the next occasion of a serious crisis, this registration data was used for gun confiscation.

The fact is gun confiscation takes several precursor steps, the most critical being the assertion of government control over private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. Curiously enough, the Liberty grabbers tend to want language inserted into these laws mandating the reportage of lost or stolen firearms. Those types of rules are of primary importance only if the point of these measures is to turn them into a registration scheme.

7. The Liberty Grabber Left needs to stop pushing for even more controls on freedom.

It is also axiomatic that Leftists will exploit any opportunity to start ever-expansive controls over Liberty. The Left is a virtual fountainhead of new and more creative ways of clamping down on freedom. Having run out of new and improved ways of making it difficult, embarrassing and expensive to buy a firearm [While also lying about it at the same time] the Left has moved on to imposing controls over the purchase of ammunition. Then of course they also are making demands on how these are stored.

8. Stop attacking those who only wish to defend themselves.

There is nothing more loathsome than Leftists who excel at hurling insults at the country’s estimated 150 Million innocent gun owners. We’ve been labelled with almost everything from being Terrorists to baby killers for wanting nothing more than to be able to defend our families and ourselves.

Those who incessantly work overtime to demonize the innocent should keep one word in mind: Deterrence. The widespread ownership of weapons in most areas deters criminals since they don’t know who can fight back. This also explains why places with tight controls on Liberty tend to have higher crime rates. Curiously enough, for people who love the term ‘Commonsense’ they certainly don’t seem to well versed in it.

9. The Left needs to become educated about that which they want to control.

Granted, it might be too much to expect the Liberty Grabbers from knowing the difference between a direct impingement and gas piston actuation, but they should at least know the difference between a semi-auto and select fire. Nothing screams uninformed more than someone who confuses a clip with a magazine or some who uses them interchangeably in a claim that one can fire off 30 rounds in half a second.

Lack of knowedge is usually a negative in most cases, but in the realm of Liberty Control, the Leftists wear it as a badge of honour.

10. The Left needs to stop lying about guns.

We made these two separate items to prove a point. While some gaffes of the Liberty grabber elite are relatively harmless, there are those that are a danger to Liberty. It should go without saying that we live in an age in which the knowledge of the world is literally at one’s fingertips. There is no rational excuse for a lack of knowledge on the most rudimentary aspects of certain subjects. By the same token, there is no excuse for the propagation of deliberate false impressions and Lies particularly on the subject of self-defense.

One of the most infamous examples stems from the creation the phrase “Assault Weapon”:

The weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons—anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun—can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.

The Takeaway.

The nation’s Left has gone on for years demanding compromises on the part of the Pro-Liberty Right. It is time that they step up to the plate and show they can be ‘bi-partisan’ for once. These steps aren’t really that extraordinary, in fact they merely bolster Liberty. Some Leftists still purport to be Liberal, supporting these items would go a long way in showing that is truly the case.
