Besides making really boring music, Bruce Springsteen is a a super liberal who pretty much hates everything most of his fans stand for. He went balls-deep supporting Hillary Clinton and now that she has pathetically lost, he’s using his considerable fame to attack Donald Trump. Well, attack is kind of a strong word. The Boss is actually terrified of a Trump presidency and is shivering in fear.
Springsteen was on un-funny comedian Marc Maron’s podcast. The host asked Springsteen if he was afraid of Trump being our next president:
“Yeah. Of course. How could you not be?” Springsteen replied.
You could be an adult who accepts the results of a free and fair election. You could realize that the president has limited powers and even a really shitty one like Obama can’t do too much damage. You could understand that for the first time in 8 years someone is leading this country who isn’t a socialist lunatic who is more interested in waging a cultural war than improving the economy. There are literally dozens of ways you could not be afraid of a Trump presidency.
Bruce, being an unrepentant liberal, then outlined why he’s shaking in his boots over Trump:
“I’ve felt disgust before, but never the kind of fear that you feel now. It’s as simple as the fear of, is someone simply competent enough to do this particular job? Do they simply have the pure competence to be put in the position of such responsibility?” Springsteen said.
We are ending two terms of Obama, who never had a real job in his life before becoming president. He proved over the course of 8 years that he was woefully unprepared to be the leader of the free world and demonstrated his incompetence on a daily basis. Springsteen was backing Hillary Clinton whose level of incompetence included submarining her own presidential campaign with a private e-mail server and her carelessness with classified material. If the Boss was really concerned with competence, he wouldn’t be a Democratic Party fanboy considering how bad they’ve been for the past decade or so.
Springsteen then appears to be sympathetic to people who voted for Trump, but in reality he calls them horrible people:
“I think if you were effected deeply by the industrialization, globalization, and the technological advances, and you have been left behind; and somebody comes along and tells you ‘I’m gonna bring all the jobs back. Don’t worry about it. They’re all coming back.’ You’re concerned about America changing, the browning of America ‘I’m gonna build a wall.’ These are all very simplistic, but very powerful and simple ideas,” said Springsteen.
It’s starts out like Springsteen understands why struggling working class people would be attracted to Trump’s promise of job creation and an improved economy, but then he calls them all racists who hate blacks and Latinos. Keep in mind that Springsteen’s fan base is these very same working class white people who would rather get back to work than watch millions of illegal aliens keep them unemployed for the rest of time.
Bruce Springsteen is a liberal elitist dick and I’ve never understood why anyone but other liberal elitist dicks would listen to his music. Much like the Democratic Party, he doesn’t speak for the working class; he represents a f*cked up progressive version of America that is at odds with average people. There’s a pretty good reason why his initials are “BS.”
Springsteen is afraid of a Trump presidency? He’s a multi-millionaire. You know what’s going to happen to him over the next 4 to 8 years? He’s going to live a privileged life and get even richer. I have a hard time feeling bad for the guy.
