Trump hater hypocritically talks “power of peace” while reviling U.S. President
With his Woodstock LSD-addled days supposedly behind him, the now 70-year-old musician Carlos Santana appeared in concert last night at a Valley casino. Ticket prices peaked at $150 a seat.
But it’s not the overpriced tickets for a has-been entertainer that might grab your attention. It’s his words in the local newspaper’s interview that should chill any future interest in this long-in-the-tooth performer. Mexican-born Santana, who became a naturalized citizen in 1965, still doesn’t get the U.S. election system. Numerous people run for the presidency but ultimately one gets elected, because the message they carried resonated with the majority of voters.
It’s a good bet few who read this site were Obama supporters, but we waited until his time in office was over and went to work, ultimately electing Donald Trump. Unlike his predecessor, he didn’t issue vague promises of “Hope and Change,” bribe gullible voters with free cell phones or repeatedly lie (video montage) about his unsustainable, socialized health care scheme. He spoke instead about making America “great again,” which resonated with weary voters across the country. A business entrepreneur, he has made American private sector job creation a prominent feature of his administration.
President Trump’s many successes are of no consequence to Carlos Santana, who goes off the deep end in an an unconcealed liberal political rant peppered with lies and led on by ‘music critic’ Ed Masley. Supposedly pitching “the power of peace,” his far leftist views will make you glad you missed the concert. After discussing music, the interview veered off into liberal hate speech:
Q: You’re not especially fond of the new administration in America.
A: Who is? Other than the Ku Klux Klan, I mean, who is? It’s not unity and harmony. It’s fear, fear, fear, fear, fear. It’s built on monetary interests. I have endured as a person LBJ, Nixon, Ronald Reagan, the two Bushes and this guy. It’s the same guy with a different face, you know?
Q: You think?
A: I know so. But one thing that’s happening is America is thirsty for righteousness and integrity. And more and more people are waking up to “You know what? We need to change ourselves and what’s happening.”
Q: How do you stay hopeful in the face of all the fear?
A: Well, thank you for asking that. Every day, when I wake up in the morning, I thank God for life and existence and I especially thank him for Nikola Tesla, because he invented the remote control. I pick it up and as soon as I see Donald Trump, I change the channel or turn it off. So he has absolutely no power over me whatsoever.
I just turn his ass right off. And I listen to birds. I listen to the clouds passing. I don’t give him anything at all from my attention, energy or concentration. I just zap him right out of my house. He has no power over me. And that’s how I stay positive.
