when musicians get a big head from their politics is when their music usually starts to suck.
(Really… killing white people isn’t cool… it isn’t moral.)
Bono’s dogooderism doesn’t apply to white farmers in South Africa.
Think about what you are supporting when you give money to ‘Live Aid’.
Bono cares. He really, really cares.
Could Bono tell us the right context for advocating racial murder?
(Andrew Bolt has videos you should watch!)
Irish pop singer Bono caused a stir in South Africa on Sunday after expressing support for the singing of an anti-apartheid struggle song that includes the lyrics “shoot the farmer”…
The U2 frontman, who is in Johannesburg ahead of a Sunday night concert for the band’s 360 Degrees Tour, said in an interview with South Africa’s Sunday Times that struggle music like the “shoot the farmer” song has a place.
“I was a kid and I’d sing songs I remember my uncles singing… rebel songs about the early days of the Irish Republican Army,” he said, proceeding to sing a song whose lyrics spoke of carrying guns and readying them for action.
“We sang this and it’s fair to say it’s folk music… as this was the struggle of some people that sang it over some time,” he told the newspaper.
But the rocker went on to say such songs shouldn’t be sung in the wrong context…
“It’s about where and when you sing those songs. There’s a rule for that kind of music.”
Boner probably likes the right-on communist roots of the song. Or perhaps he thinks the 3000 murdered farmers deserved it.
BONO is a disgusting man. murder is not justified. the Boer are facing a genocide.
the ANC are all about identity politics. identity politics is all about attacking the other. The Nazis understood all about this… they were the poor and oppressed and the Jews were all bankers to them. it just doesn’t change… we just make hate acceptable in the new context of leftism and feminism.
He isn’t just a frontman for U2… he is a frontman for Amnesty International and their bias
