Punk Fan Defends Trump at Punk Concert, What Aging Rocker Does in Response is Horrible

Published

on

A conservative fan of the band Social Distortion recently decided to attend one of the band’s live performances in Sacramento when he claims he was assaulted for being a supporter of President Donald Trump.

Tim Hildebrand, who is a self-described “Republican Farmer” says Mike Ness, the 56-year-old singer of the group, started shredding Trump on stage and then started insulting America, something to which Hildebrand took great offense. Things escalated from their.

“I stood pretty much with my silent protest with my middle finger up for the next two songs.”

Ness didn’t like that and in the video, you can see him motion Hildebrand to the stage, where the singer spits in his face. Hildebrand says the two were yelling at each other when Ness lunged toward him.

He said he told Ness, “I pretty much said I paid for your music, not your politics.” Then Ness “takes his guitar off, jumps off the stage and proceeds to punch me multiple times in the head,” Hildebrand said.

Afterward, the lifelong Social Distortion fan says he was dragged out of the venue, but has filed a police report and plans to press charges. “Someone that has the status that he does shouldn’t get away with assaulting someone.”

Hildebrand says he was badly injured in the attack, suffering two black eyes, a split lip, a concussion, and some loose teeth. And he says other fans of the band took part, too.

What truly blows the mind is that punk rock music was established on rebellion against an oversized government that sought to restrict basic rights and freedoms. It’s all about “sticking it to the man,” being an individual and doing things yourself, controlling your own destiny.

Yet, the vast majority of punk bands now — and in the last several decades — have been socialists and hardcore left-wingers, which is in direct opposition to their stated beliefs against authority. One cannot support big government and be anti-authority. That’s just silly and inconsistent.

Perhaps someone needs to send that memo to Ness, because this is a truth he seems to be struggling with accepting.

Legendary Guitarist Set to Boycott Venues Requiring Vaccine Proof

WOW!

With nearly half of Americans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Biden administration has hit a wall.  The folks who are left unvaccinated are, by and large, abstaining by their own decision.  They don’t want a vaccine, and they don’t believe that the federal government has any right to tell them otherwise. But some private companies have begun suggesting that they may institute new regulations that would require customers or users to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to interact with them.  This could include some convert venues requiring that ticket holders can prove their vaccine status before seeing their favorite musical acts once they hit the road again. Legendary blues guitarist Eric Clapton isn’t into it.  At all. Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they have received their full vaccination from the coronavirus. The musician and outspoken vaccine skeptic issued a statement that was highly critical of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that vaccine passes would be required to enter nightclubs and other live performance venues in light of increasing coronavirus cases. The “Wonderful Tonight” singer issued a statement on the Telegram account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, a known COVID-19 vaccination skeptic as well. In it, he issued a direct response to Johnson’s announcement and called the situation for those who do not wish to get the vaccine discriminatory. “Slow hand” got right to the point. “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel…

The officer’s lawyers were quick to respond.

Tucker Carlson

It is well understood that passion is a large part of the punditry game.  Human beings want to know that the person delivering their news is invested in the story, (for some reason), and the primetime players are all very aware of this fact. But there are times in which the rabbit hole that they’re chasing stories down becomes too dark, too cavernous for even the most skilled orator, or the fastest on-their-feet thinkers that we have. Sometimes things go a little far in the mainstream media, and the nation at large leers in to rebuke the extremes. Tucker Carlson may very well be having one of these moments. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson sparked outcry Wednesday night when he called Black Capitol police officer Harry Dunn an “angry left-wing political activist.” “On Tuesday, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi will call on police officer Harry Dunn. Dunn will pretend to speak for the country’s law enforcement community, but it turns out Dunn has very little in common with your average cop. Dunn is an angry, left-wing political activist,” said Carlson, referring to Dunn’s forthcoming testimony in front of the Congressional committee converged to investigate the deadly Jan. 6 riot. He pointed to social media posts Dunn, who is Black, has made about racism before. The backlash came swiftly. Dunn’s lawyers, David Laufman and Mark Zaid, released a statementWednesday night that read, “Tonight Fox News allowed its host Tucker Carlson, who has not served a day in uniform, whether military or law enforcement, to criticize the heroism and service of African-American U.S. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn. Our client has served 13 years in law enforcement and on January 6, 2021, fought against an insurrectionist violent crowd — no doubt many of them Carlson’s supporters — to protect the lives of our elected officials, including…
