Todd Rundgren

“If I had the power, I’d say: If you’re a Trump supporter, don’t come to my show, because you won’t have a good time. And also, I don’t understand your frickin’ values. Because I’m not singing about that. If you don’t understand that basic thing, you’re just fooling yourself.”

It never ceases to amaze me how people who devote their entire careers to saying whatever the hell pleases them, have no problem being completely intolerant to other people’s opinions.  While cashing in on claiming a higher set of values, they practice fascism and intolerance.

I had several Rundgren tunes on my cell, I don’t now, per his recommendation.  I prefer artists who do it for the art, not so they can claim some moral high road.  And for what it’s worth, I’m not necessarily a “Trump supporter”.  I just know an asshole when I hear one.

About that Trump fascism claim

We’ve all heard it. People waving Mexican flags and stomping on US flags are claiming it. Black Lives Matter supporters starting fights at Trump rallies are claiming it. A political action group even “studied” it in detail:

They all cite this like it’s in a vacuum that hasn’t existed since, drum roll please, Hitler. However, we really don’t have to go back that far to find the last time a sitting US President called for a ban on immigrants from the Middle East:

That’s right, the peanut farmer banned all immigrants from Iran based on the actions of terrorists. Every single one of them would have been Muslims.

In all the interviews of 1980-1981, Hillary Rodham never called Jimmy Carter a fascist.
