Some may recognize this piece from my profile page where I posted it after the original discussion from which it originated. The current issue, with regard to the Album 'American Idiot,' provided a good opportunity to make these points yet again. Laura Ingraham
inspired me on her show last night, when she discussed Green Day's appearance on the Letterman Show and played the clips. Like so many other imbeciles on the Left, they scream about the degenerate nature of Conservatives, when it is they who are the short-sided, intolerant, ignorant, bigots.

So he decided to express himself with a punk song.
Why do they think putting lazy teenagers in charge of the country is a good idea?

Don't hesitate to remind these GreenDay idiots that Saddam was harboring Abu Abbas and Abu Nidal in Baghdad shortly before the war.
No connection with Islamic Militarism? Pigs are flying.

Green Day sucks. When they write a song one tenth as good as "Rockaway Beach" or "God Save The Queen", then they can get back to me.
Greenday is tight ass, commercial punk and, as such, they really aren't punk at all. They are part of the media showbiz blitz to take down the president. Making tons of money & running with the celebrity pack speaks loudest to these "Johnny 'wannabee' Dangerous" types. If they really wanted to be dangerous they could have defied Hollywood and the Entertainment Industry, defied their cool peers, defied making tons of money from the trendy swank liberals... in other words, they could have been like Kid Rock! But, no, rather, Greenday comes out against Bush because they don't want to sink their multimillion dollar careers to do such a dangerous thing. Yes, these cash cow punks follow the herd, they know Hollywood butters their bread and they really don't want to bite the hand that feeds them (for them it's more like lick the hand that feeds them).
I don't think it is a question of them understanding the pro/con arguments and positions of either Bush or Kerry, but about having to play the game that the liberal herd requires. They must have obviously thought it was cool and Bush would have lost, especially with so many celebrities joining in the Bush bashing orgy, and 'coolness' is a lot easier than having the courage or inclination to think through the issues. Like I said before, they are corporate punk and, because they follow the money, they go against the very essence of punk. They are like most Hollywood types... shallow, herd like, hypocritical babies.
Yes, they are the rich American Idiots!
I just heard this piece of trash on the radio today and was disgusted. The only thing that screams LOSER more than a trio of mid-30's adults pretending they're teenage punk singers is a trio of mid-30's adults pretending they're teenage punk singers and using it as a platform to spout leftist garbage.
The history of music has a great tradition, BTW, of dealing with these types. Canadian Neil Young - another leftist nutcase singer - famously made a broad-based portrayal of the American south as a bunch of ignorant redneck klansmen and called for slavery reparations in "Southern Man." Shortly thereafter Lynyrd Skynyrd served Mr. Young a healthy counterpunch with "Sweet Home Alabama"

At least some of us "short-sided, intolerant, ignorant, bigots" know how to spell sophomoric.
-Just one of your many errors... picked out by an ignorant bigot who can't even vote yet.
