Leftist propaganda is encouraging people to demonize half the country.
And entertainment celebrities are some of the worst pushers of divisive rhetoric.
Now one famed rocker ripped Trump supporters and immediately regretted it.
It’s no surprise that celebrities in Hollywood and in the music industry don’t like Donald Trump.
The entertainment industry is overwhelmingly left-wing with a smattering of conservatives and libertarians.
But celebrities are crossing the line when they attack Trump voters.
And Dee Snider of Twisted Sister did exactly that in a profane rant.
Snider tweeted, “ATTENTION QANON, MAGAT FASCISTS: Every time you sing “We’re Not Gonna Take It” remember it was written by a cross-dressing, libtard, tree hugging half-Jew who HATES everything you stand for. It was you and people like you that inspired every angry word of that song! SO FUCK OFF!”

The problem for Snider is that he was singing a completely different tune in 2016.
Back then, a TMZ reporter approached Snider on the street, and Snider responded, “You should ask me about Donald Trump because he’s using ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ as his campaign anthem.”
The reporter asked Snider if he supported Trump’s candidacy, and he responded, “Donald Trump is a good friend, great guy, and I support him turning the political system on its head. The song ‘We’re Not Gonna Take it’ is a song about rebellion, and there’s nothing more rebellious than what Donald Trump is doing right now.”
The reporter then asked if Trump worked out a licensing agreement to use the song, and Snider said he let him use the song for free.
Snider said that he told Trump, “You’re a buddy of mine, I like what you’re doing, so go for it.”
On top of that, Snider performed onstage at a Trump event.

Snider is one of many public figures that supported Trump—or at the very least was friendly with him—only to turn his back when the pressure from the establishment got too hot.
In 2016, CNN contributor Donny Deutsch said that he was friends with Trump and that he wasn’t the threat to the country that the media were making him out to be.
A year or so later, Deutsch was saying that it was time to pick up a brick and take to the streets.
Ironically, Snider’s entire mystique was built around being against the establishment.
In the mid-80s, he was battling Tipper Gore on the issue of censorship in music.
Now Snider is shilling for a regime that’s even more censorious.
From The Daily Wire:
“Snider appeared before the Senate in 1985 after a pro-censorship group known as the Parental Music Resource Center (PMRC) published a list of problematic bands and tunes that included Twisted Sister. Although the Senate was controlled by Republicans at the time, the drive to censor music was largely a Democrat project. The PMRC itself was spearheaded by Tipper Gore — who would be second lady just seven years later — and suggested that ‘We’re Not Gonna take It’ should be slapped with a warning label because it promoted ‘violence.’”
It appears as though Snider is going to take it after all.
