Looking at reaction on social media...Bruce and his views havent gone down well with folks..I have no issue with somebody expressing there opinion, its everyones right to do so and why should bruce be any different, he has an opinion and chooses to talk about it.. just like the fella down the pub does difference is.. normal people giving opinions is acceptable but when bruce does it there is an outcry, if you agree thats great and if you disagree thats also great.. we all have political opinions and we can all express them.. and bruce chooses to do this

He's a big boy, im sure he's weighed up the cost 

Maybe a few less casual fan/ bucket listers to get in line ahead of me next tour

This is supposed to be my fucking electric Nebraska 

This is very sad and very disappointing. I hope he at least donates the money (assuming he got paid to do that) to some charity cause. Yes it's fine cinematography and I'm sure he means all the things

I came to this topic expecting some debate on Bruce doing a commercial. I wasn't expecting a debate on the resale value of Jeeps. Gotta love Greasy Lake.

The problem is not with him expressing his opinion. It's that he is the wrong messenger for a "let's unify in the middle" message in America now. It's as if the two sides - let's call them "MAGA and Woke" are from A-Z on a spectrum with MAGA at A and Woke at Z. 

Woke has taken all the power in the country with their (very suspect) win of the Presidency and majorities in the House and Senate. So now they want the other side to "meet in the middle". However, in reality what they want is submission of principles and ideals from the other side (cue GL lefty members saying Trump voters principles and ideals are inferior blah blah blah). So knowing Bruce well, what he means is we should all come together on the terms HE believes in. In other words, let's meet in the middle at... Y

Surely people arent blind enough to turn his great music down based on a political opinion

Thats my tuppence worth

I on the other hand have a significant problem with the notion of meeting in the middle with a significant number of people who, if not outright fascists, bigots, white nationalists, insurrectionists, conspiracy theorists and bullies, at least do not seem willing to denounce that element of people with whom they apparently share other common positions.

 

 

Could it be that Bruce doesn't buy the notion that half the country are white supremecists, etc.?

If you don't like his opinion so be it.. he has a right to express his an opinion and he has.. would people rather that we can't express opinions

Remember what brought us all here... bruce and his music.. if you don't want the opinions then just listen to his music (Thinking about it... try instrumental versions if you don't want the opinions.... and stay clear of magic and wrecking ball :lol:)

“On your way out tonight we’re going to have Jeep salesman at the exits. The great people at Hudson River Jeep Dealers of the Tristate Area have been putting people in Jeep’s for over 50 years and they would like to put you in one of theirs. So if you wouldn’t mind stopping by on the way home to take a test drive, look at sticker prices, get an information packet that would help keep money in the middle of my pocket.”

I tried for the longest time not to, but couldn't allow his hateful speech to keep going unchecked. Disagreeing with someone is one thing but to hate is another. 

Get the ignore on like everyone on the Lions Den has. Haven’t read a word the prick has said in months.

See if you can guess which ones I've changed?

The Jeep

First correct guess wins a signed copy of the 1980s classic double album The Jeep.
