POLITICS ASIDE

November 9th, 2016

Bassnectar - Unlimited - June 1727 years ago today the Berlin Wall was torn down. Walls are separation, hate, division. Today, 55 million people elected a man whose campaign is centered around building walls; a campaign of hate, deception, and divisive rhetoric. Politics aside, I hope people today feel and understand how wrong it is to be racist, sexist, homophobic, hateful. I hope we do not move backwards but continue to evolve in deeper cooperation, better communication, and more connection.

    I love you BN but your helping instigate all of these riots and nonsense. Speak of unity.

    • Chris Basscrew

      No he isn’t…

      • garebarelikeslittleboys

        Yes he is, I don’t listen to Bassnectar to listen to generalizations. Also, you’re a biased mod…

        • Chris Basscrew

          Not at all – I support freedom of speech and one’s right to express their thoughts on their own platform.

          To say that he is instigating riots by expressing his thoughts is both hyperbolic and untrue.

    I didn’t vote for Trump, but I think you underestimate how terrible of an option many people viewed Hillary as. Another power-hungry politician with a say-anything-to-get elected policy just wasn’t an inspiring candidate. Her positions on issues were only based on what was poll-tested (recall she didn’t support gay marriage until 2013).

    I got so frustrated with both candidates that I made a short video illustrating why we have a failed 2 party system. I included a link below. Hopefully you can appreciate the unappealing choice we had of “Mrs. Corrupt vs. Mr. Punish & Enslave” 🙂

    For what it’s worth, I just stumbled across your work this week, and really enjoy several of your tracks. Keep up the good work.

    Hillary is terrible, I love you Bassnectar but keep this shit out of here, you’re alienating half your fanbase, more of us voted Trump than you think and it’s not because we want to build a fucking wall. Keep your bitching to yourself until after he has actually been given a chance in office. I thought you of all people would keep this prejudice out of your music. You’re not running for office so we don’t want to hear it.

      A citizen of this country does not need to run for office to speak their mind. You’re choosing to hear/read his views by being on this blog.

      He doesn’t promote prejudice in his music – you can hear for yourself here: http://www.bassnectar.net/music

      We don’t need to feel alienated when someone states something that we disagree with. How are we supposed to have discussions that progress our society if we dismiss opposing views off-hand and get offended?
