(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Johnny Rotten, the legendary punk singer and frontman of the Sex Pistols, said during a BBC interview last week that he would “definitely” be voting for President Donald Trump. It comes weeks after a 2018 image of him smoking and wearing a Make America Great Again tee shirt went viral again.
During the interview, Rotten – whose real name is actually John Lydon – said that he likes the president for being an “Individual thinker” and that he doesn’t believe the Democrats offer any meaningful opposition.
“Yes, of course, I’m voting for Trump,” Rotten said. “He’s an individual thinker, I’ll give him that for a start. He’s not the most lovable fellow on God’s earth, but I cannot see the opposition as offering me anything by way of a solution.”
That’s a big statement for someone who opposed President Trump in 2016. Lyndon supported Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton during that race and even supported President Barack Obama in his two races.
The Guardian, a left-wing British newspaper, reported ho Lydon said he would be “daft as a brush” not to vote for President Trump, and that he is the “only sensible choice now that Biden is up.”
“He’s incapable of being the man at the helm,” he reportedly said.
Interestingly, Lydon once agreed with the media on President Trump.
Also speaking to The Guardian, Lydon reaffirmed his commitment to opposing racism.
“Of course I’m anti-racism,” he said.
Lydon said that he doesn’t think anybody he knows doesn’t believe what happened to George Floyd was “ghastly,” but he added that it doesn’t mean that all police officers are “nasty or all white folk are racist.”
In a FaceTime conversation with a Guardian reporter, Lyndon said that he believes the working class has spoken.
“They’re not going to be dictated to by unknown continentals,” he said about British voters who supported leaving the European Union in 2016.
Interestingly, the Sex Pistols singer appears to have begun supporting President Trump when the media began its campaign to smear him as a racist.
“I’ve been accused of the very same thing, so I’m offended for anybody who’s called that,” he responded.
How about that? The media calling everybody might not have the effect they intended…
