Despite Morning Joe's Cluelessness, Green Day Does America Proud! "No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA!"

>




Was I lucky when I became the president of Reprise Records! The label had just debuted Green Day's Dookie and it was hurtling past gold and platinum sales. They reminded me of my favorite band, The Clash, in so many ways, not the least of which was a very genuine ideological perspective that encapsulated the ideals of the French Revolution-- liberté, égalité, fraternité-- and my first job was to persuade our European companies, which were ignoring the record entirely, that Green Day was for real. First stop: London. The chairman of our U.K. affiliate was condescending and steadfast. There would be no push for Green Day from his company; period. "We already had punk. What have you got next?" Next? Next, I went to Germany and forged a new kind of alliance-- to bypass the U.K. in breaking new American releases in Europe. The German company put their full marketing push behind Dookie and soon enough the U.K. was struggling to keep up with a Green Day explosion enveloping all of Europe. Dookie was one of the first albums to have ever been awarded the brand new "diamond" status-- 10,000,000 sales in the U.S. alone.

This morning I woke up and the hypocrites on Morning Joe were castigating the cast of Hamiltion for being rude to Pence-- and for creating a "dangerous" situation for his family. Why not, the elitist scum who sit around the vile table, pontificated, wait for Trump to do something wrong before attacking him like that. Like that? A mild reminder that the president needs to work for the common good? And wait? Trump just spent over a year spewing hatred, bigotry and divisiveness and his first appointments were a KKK psychopath and a neo-fascist, Attorney General-designate Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III and senior advisor Steve Bannon. Wait for what? Round-ups and concentration camps. Please, God, let Mika and Joe and their table be the first bunch carted off to never be heard from again!

I shut the TV off as quickly as I could and went downstairs to the DWT office and saw the reports from Sunday night's American Music Awards. Green Day stole the show-- no surprise there-- but it wasn't just the music. During a performance of one of their new songs, "Bang, Bang," Billie Joe added in a chant: "No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA!" Oh, yes. And fuck Morning Joe! As far as I know Trump hasn't tweeted for Green Day to apologize yet. Let's hope he does. And let's hope MSNBC invites Billie Joe over to make fund of Mika and Joe one day soon too.


This was the very patriotic, all-American message, that so offended Trump and Morning Joe idiots:

"American Idiot" by Green Day. Written before the drumpf/$hillbillary holocaust of 2016.

Don't wanna be an American idiot
Don't want a nation under the new media
And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind-fuck America

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the ones who're meant to follow
For that's enough to argue

Well maybe I'm the faggot America
I'm not a part of a redneck agenda
Now everybody do the propaganda
And sing along to the age of paranoia

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the ones who're meant to follow
For that's enough to argue

Don't wanna be an American idiot
One nation controlled by the media
Information Age of hysteria
It's calling out to idiot America

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the ones who're meant to follow
For that's enough to argue

I once sat with Green Day in the green room with Howie prior to their appearance on a late night show. Billy Joe loved Howie!! He wanted Howie to move across the street and come over to his house for barbecues. We love Billy Joe. An American hero, he is. He is courageous and tells it like he sees it.

With you on the Morning Joe complaints. Cannot bear to watch those two morons and as you said, hypocrites. Their opinions follow the popular person of the day - disgraceful that MSNBC keeps them on. Are we all too stupid to see through them? I guess we are. They were Trump cheerleaders until he started ragging on them, then they were against him, and now they love him.
