Many popular entertainers who hold liberal political views seem to be clueless about the fact that many or even most of their fans hold political views that are different from theirs. Foolishly, during the presidency of Republican Donald Trump they have been alienating their own fans and hurting their careers by putting out songs attacking the president.
The latest example of this is Irish rock band U2, which is lead by hyper-liberal frontman Bono. The band, which peaked in the 80’s and early 90’s, recently released a song titled “Get Out of Your Own Way” which is meant as a direct criticism of Trump voters and all people who support the Republican as president.
The song comes with a video that depicts President Trump as supporting the Ku Klux Klan, and implies that many of his followers are members of the Klan.
Commented Israeli artists Broken Fingaz Crew, who made the video for U2, “The video addresses the current political situation: 2017 for us was the year fascists worldwide felt confident enough to raise their heads again, encouraged by Trump and other world leaders, who use people’s fear to build more walls and segregation.”
They added, “The song is both a personal letter and a clarion cry to the global situation, and in the same way, we’ve combined our psychedelic pop style with political imagery.” Will you boycott out-of-touch U2 for their disgusting song and video? Watch below:
