Call to Boycott Bruce Springsteen Tour of Australia
Bruce Springsteen called Trump a Racist for wanting to control immigration.
Bruce Springsteen has proven he is now a political activist first and an entertainer second, Australia should send him a massage that we support Trump and his attempt to use his celebrity to get Hillary elected was off target.
Bruce Springsteen cancelled his show in Greensboro, N.C., citing “solidarity” in opposition to the state’s new law requiring transgender people to use the bathrooms that correspond with their physical sex at birth.
On Donald Trump he told Rolling Stone “Well, you know, the republic is under siege by a moron, basically. The whole thing is tragic. Without overstating it, it’s a tragedy for our democracy.”
He also said ““The Price You Pay” is an ode to unintended consequences. It’s a song about making tough decisions unsure of how they’ll turn out, about taking a turn down a dark road that might just as easily lead to ruin as to glory. It’s an appropriate song for the night before the Minnesota caucuses, when voters will choose which presidential candidate they’d like to represent their party in the fall—a choice with uncertain outcomes. That choice seems to be pretty far from the crowd’s mind right now, though. They’ve come here to be distracted from their problems, not reminded of them. And Springsteen is doing his best to oblige, the 66-year-old rocker singing and dancing and running around the stage with the energy of a much younger man.
But I’m thinking about Donald Trump all the same. The New York businessman has transformed the presidential race on the Republican side with his promises of border walls, mass deportations, a halt to Muslim immigration. He’s publicly supported torture and other war crimes. He’s bullied his opponents. He’s said racist and misogynist things like it’s his second nature.”
