The 62 year old Bruce Springsteen had this to say at a press conference in Paris, France.
“I have spent my life judging the distance between American reality and the American dream,” Springsteen told the conference, where the album was aired for the first time. It was written, he claimed, not just out of fury but out of patriotism, a patriotism traduced.
“What was done to our country was wrong and unpatriotic and un-American and nobody has been held to account,” he later told the Guardian.
Spoken like a true #OWS loser. Bruce continues with more gibberish.
“A big promise has been broken. You can’t have a United States if you are telling some folks that they can’t get on the train. There is a cracking point where a society collapses. You can’t have a civilisation where something is factionalised like this.”
I think Bruce is referring to granting amnesty for illegal immigrants with the “telling some folks they can’t get on the train” line. Although, I’m not sure.
Later in the article, Bruce circled back and continued heaping praise upon the #OWS losers.
Springsteen, 62, says he is not afraid of how the album will be received in election-year America: “The temper has changed. And people on the streets did it. Occupy Wall Street changed the national conversation – the Tea Party had set it for a while. The first three years of Obama were under them.
“Previous to Occupy Wall Street, there was no push back at all saying this was outrageous – a basic theft that struck at the heart of what America was about, a complete disregard for the American sense of history and community … In Easy Money the guy is going out to kill and rob, just like the robbery spree that has occurred at the top of the pyramid – he’s imitating the guys on Wall Street. An enormous fault line cracked the American system right open whose repercussion we are only starting to be feel.
“Nobody had talked about income inequality in America for decades – apart from John Edwards – but no one was listening. But now you have Newt Gingrich talking about ‘vulture capitalism’ – Newt Gingrich! – that would not have happened without Occupy Wall Street.”
Seriously, What is Bruce Springsteen talking about? The Occupy Wall Street movement is not a paragon of American values and virtue. No matter how much the left tries to spin it.
When Bruce talks about income inequality he sounds a lot like Karl Marx.
“Private property has made us so stupid and one-sided that an object is only ours when we have it.”
Never been a big fan of Bruce and, after reading this article, never will be.
