The author's subtitle to this article uses the homophobic "teabagger" epithet to slur the tea partiers.

Yellow journalism is alive and well among the lavender mafia.

From Stereogum (I guess they also have the youtube clip but I can’t see it here):

Finally, if you watch the news on WALB, the local NBC affiliate for southwestern Georgia, you might’ve caught an interview with Tea Partier Maureen Tucker, who tells the camera that she’s tired of how the country is being led toward socialism. (The broadcast is a few months old, but has been making the rounds only recently.) Maureen Tucker is better known as Moe Tucker, the drummer for the Velvet Underground, who moved to Georgia to raise her family. She joins the small list of right-leaning musicians like Sammy Hagar, Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, Meatloaf, and Kid Rock. Watch her interview on WALB (starts at 2:40):

The same red diaper doper babies who elevated The Vichy Chicks to celebrity status with “Shut Up And Sing” are now here to blacklist any entertainer who speaks out against socialism.

I saw this article posted on facebook with scores of catty comments.

Maureen worked for IBM. She actually had a desk job and she returned to her old life as the band went away.

Sterling Morrison left to teach and work on a tugboat.

Lou Reed, John Cale, and Nico lived the life of a lesser grade rock stars.

“For All Tommorrow’s (Tea) Parties.” It is a shame Nico is still not alive - they could preform.

Henry Rollins is a coward. I heard a story about him and he is a total coward.

A lot of counter culture music rebels are right wing. The Ramones were Republicans and if you watch Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld he has a constant string of punk rock and rollers who are conservatives or libertarians. It is more rebellious to buck the lib mainstream in the entertainment industry than these losers like Sean Penn and Oliver Stone going along with their mindless following.

Here is a fact for you douche bag. Your time has come and gone. The American people are taking the Country back this November and the next Presidential Election. Many of the weak and spineless bought into the socialism but they have since found put that it sucks and they got screwed. Now they are crawling back into their holes.

Pssst - Brandon! You’re the establishment now, son. They’re still counterculture. They didn’t sell out, you did.

Left-wing rock. I may like the music, but I could care less about the political opinions.

It's like finding out that Henry Rollins has just been wearing a fake muscle suit all these years and he's really a skinny, mild-mannered pushover.

No. But I did see him at a Trader Joe's once, and was totally disillusioned.

my comment on the page of the story:

Yeah, because the counter-culture is about how you dress and not thinking independently.

Holy shit - get a grip. The Tea Party - for individualism and freedom - is not the enemy.

Somewhat related: from No Depression. Don't think he is right on all of it, but I agree with the general idea.
