The Dead Kennedys mocked extreme liberals, fascists and bullies regularly and stated that one should "think for oneself". As a recovering leftist, I started to pay attention to the insidious madness of political extremes and realized that Trump was the antithesis of the regressive left.
I spent half my life as a socialist, and once I started to pay attention I realized I was wrong.
I am happy to think for myself again, and I have DK to thank for it.
Slander and ad hominem attacks are a symptom of those who have no argument—it's just bullying. It's easier to call someone a fascist than to truly understand what it means. It's lazy. People need dialogue to proceed. You don't have to like Trump, but people, please, think for yourself. There are always two sides.
And to Jello "Ashamed" Biafra, I've paid very close attention to the lyrics, and I'm confident DK would endorse neither Donny nor Hillary, just free thought. I respect your perspective and appreciate you being civil about it. It was inevitable someone would question the paradox—I'm glad it was you. And thank you, Halifax, for being so tolerant. Cheers. —The man in the coat
