It’s a very funny thing about liberal entertainers. They can support some left-wing idea or fund-raising event until they’re blue in the face, but when faced with something from the GOP, watch out! Joe Walsh has become the latest example of that, and I’m sure the city of Cleveland, the state of Ohio, and the rest of the country will never recover from it.
Joe Walsh is going to skip the opening day concert at the GOP convention in July.
I thought the guy had been to rehab and was all straightened out, but apparently Walsh had accepted a concert gig in Cleveland on July 18th, thinking that it was going to be a benefit for the Veterans and their families. Hmm….what ELSE may be happening on Cleveland beginning July 18th? So, through some drug-induced fog, Walsh realized that he’d signed on to play for the Grand Old Party’s opening bash, and quickly decided to back out…citing a misunderstanding of who the concert was actually for!
I don’t think the party will break apart over Donald Trump and Ted Cruz fighting over delegates. I think for sure that the party will break apart over not being able to hear Rocky Mountain Way!
Actually, it’s just the latest episode that the right faces when dealing with the idiot entertainers on the left. Let me ask you, how many people have threatened to leave the United States if Donald Trump is elected president? I know that Al Sharpton (not necessarily a Hollywood star), Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stewart, and Rosie O’Donnell have all sworn they’d move to Canada if Trump wins. My reaction has been probably what yours has been…there are flights leaving every hour on the hour for Vancouver and Toronto. Pick your poison and leave already!
The funny thing about the left is they feel they have to make some grand statement by boycotting everything they don’t agree with. You don’t see that so much with the folks on the other side. In fact, I can’t recall how many GOP faithful actually gave up their citizenship and moved to Canada when Bobo the Clown was inaugurated. Actually I found that 1,788 citizens gave up their American citizenship in 2009 alone…though most of them did so because of increased taxes, not Obama. The rest is as much of a haze as what Joe Walsh lives in.
So my message to the left’s celebs is clear. If you want to leave, leave. If you don’t want to play in the right’s convention, no one is forcing you. But the shoe also fits the other foot (mixed metaphor…sorry!), and when you NEED someone on the right to fix your blistered and battered economy because you don’t have a clue what you’re doing; when you have ruined yet another American city (Detroit, Chicago, Flint all come to mind), don’t be asking the right winged folks to help out. You got yourself into that mess, you get yourself out. Meanwhile, we’ll just invite Charlie Daniels and Taylor Swift to play our events.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
