When it comes to the subject of identity politics it seems that every person in America wants to know exactly where every single entertainer stands in regards to everything.
It’s almost as if before they go to buy a ticket to see a show they have a hundred question survey they want the performer to fill out before they buy a ticket.
It’s kinda ridiculous because would you have still enjoyed that person’s music or movies if you didn’t know anything about them politically?
Consider this, I remember a time not all that long ago when you would have people that disagreed with a sitting President that would still talk about them with some manner of respect. We have gotten to the point in this country where identify politics have gotten so out of hand that people think it’s perfectly alright to sit and say the worst possible things about the President and show absolutely no respect for the office whatsoever.
People that do this are the type that would sit and talk about how much they hate America. Well, if they hate it so much there are plenty of other places for them to go.
KISS guitarist Ace Frehley argued this week that all Americans should either support President Donald Trump or consider emigrating to another country.
Appearing on the “Juliet: Unexpected” podcast, the 67-year-old rocker said that he normally didn’t involve himself in politics, he was annoyed by people who “jump on a bandwagon against our government.”
“I hate politics,” Frehley said. “I don’t like talking politics, and I don’t think politics and music mix. I really frown on musicians who get up on a platform and start talking about the president or complain about — I just don’t think it belongs.”
“I’m an entertainer,” he continued. “There’s no reason to bring up politics. Let me play my guitar and write songs and entertain people. That’s my job.”
Frehley went on to argue that whether people “love him or hate him,” they should “get behind” President Donald Trump for the sake of the country.
“He was elected. We live under the Constitution of the United States, and you’re supposed to support your president,” he said. “Love him or hate him, you’re supposed to support him, or go move to another country.”
