Top 11 Lyrics That Prove Bruce Springsteen Is A Leftist Scumbag (like Bruce Dickinson)

11. The question of honor you must decide
The soul of the nation has been denied
Our dreams have been stolen before our eyes
How do you say there's no tomorrow to a child?--"Native American"

10. Well the city supplied a public defender but the judge was Mean John Brown
He came into the courtroom and stared young Johnny down--"Johnny 99"

09. She slipped me out of her mouth, "You're ready," she said.
She took off her bra and panties, wet her finger, slipped it inside her--"Reno"

08. It ain't no secret
No secret my friend
You can get killed just for living
In your American skin--"American Skin"

07. Down from the mountain roads where the highway rolls to dark
'Neath Allah's blessed rain, we remain worlds apart--"Worlds Apart"

06. When you hear the children screaming whose brothers have died
You can murder in the name of freedom but you just can't hide--"The War Is Over"

05. Highway patrol choppers comin' up over the ridge
Hot soup on a campfire under the bridge
Shelter line stretchin' round the corner
Welcome to the new world order--"The Ghost of Tom Joad"

04. Now Tom said "Mom, wherever there's a cop beatin' a guy
Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries
Where there's a fight 'gainst the blood and hatred in the air
Look for me Mom I'll be there--"The Ghost of Tom Joad"

03. Now Raphael Rodriguez was just seven years old
Shot down in a schoolyard by some East Compton Cholos
His mamma cried "My beautiful boy is dead"
In the hills the self-made men just sighed and shook their heads--"Souls of the Departed"

02. Then came the shutdowns
And our whole world went black
Man said, "These jobs are goin' boys
And they ain't comin' back."

Me and Sill, we robbed a Stop and Shop
On a cold and windy night
I had my pistol
And I shot a boy in flight--"James Lincoln Deere"

01. Got in a little hometown jam
So they put a rifle in my hand
Sent me off to a foreign land
To go and kill the yellow man --"Born In The USA"

I rest my case.

You forgot the ever so offensive:

Poor man want to be rich,
Rich man want to be king,
King ain't satisfied until he owns everything.

This a cynical slam against human nature in general, all from a leftist millionaire.

Bruce sucks, don't listen, don't care.. and besides he backed Kerry at the last minute made no difference. The stars think way too much of themselves. My whole opinion really turns on what Goldie Hawn thinks, not.

Could you post exactly how those lyric selections prove that Bruce is a "leftist scumbag"? I see the leftist part...but not the scumbag. I can see people being upset about the "Reno" lyrics, but I don't know how those lyrics make him a "leftist scumbag" in your eyes, instead of merely a "scumbag."

I had the great misfortune of living with a roommate in the 80's that played Bruce 24-7. Not only was his music somewhat of a downer, his voice was similar to a cow (with very limited range), the musicianship average at best, and the lyrics were sooooooo boooooring too say the least. Really, the guy does not have any kind of voice at all.

I quickly grew to dislike, despise and eventually hate his music, and the musician. Constantly droning in the apartment, over, and over, and over and over again. Lord, I hated his droll music. Words simply cannot describe the distaste that evolved for this man.

Try and spend some 'quality time' with your woman with Rosie blaring in the background. Not exactly bonkin' music.

Fast forward to today (10-12-07)- he joins the ranks of those like Sean Penn in his anti-American sentiment. I simply cannot believe that anyone enjoys his music, and furthermore, gives a ratt's a$$ about his politics.

The guy's a felon, cheated on his wife, sings like $hit, has droll songs and spouts off in politics, touting a high school education (at best).

I simply cannot understand it. God, people are stupid for even acknowledging his existence.

God, I wish he'd go away - far, far away.

I wish arrogant ass heads like you would just go away.

Oh, and at the end of reno, the song that you all hate because he goes to have sex with a prostitute, he say "it wasn't the best, not even close"

I really don't see the "scumbag" bit. Leftist sure, but scumbag is going a bit far- he's no worse than the majority of Americans.

However, let's take a look at some of these lines, and, for the sake of arguement, assume that they were written by a "leftist scumbag". Thus, the opposite of a leftist scumbag would disagree with everything in these lines. The opposite of a leftist scumbag, logically, would be a right-wing pillar of society.

Now, let's look at numbers nine, eight, and seven on your list, starting with nine, and incorporating the bit thrown in by the person above me. The opposite view of this song, then, would be somebody who would enjoy sex with prostitutes (would, in fact, think it was the best sex). From a right-wing pillar of society. Yeah...

Moving on to number eight. This song was written as a protest over an incident in New York where a police officer (or group of them, I forget) shot somebody 41 times because they were pulling out their wallet to show the cops ID. Now, to emphasize this, to shoot somebody 41 times with a pistol would require the cop to empty his clip, reload, and repeat. Multiple times.

So, the opposite view of this would be that there was nothing wrong with that incident. Thus, a right-wing pillar of society would see no problem at all with a cop emptying multiple clips into somebody WHO WAS GETTING THEIR ID OUT.

Number seven, now. The song was written to promote peace and unity in the Middle East. Logical counter-view? "Screw peace and unity, let's blow more shit up."

So, drawn together, what you are effectively stating is that a right-wing pillar of society enjoys sex with prostitutes, sees nothing wrong with unloading 41 shots into somebody trying to get their wallet out, and is a warmonger.

...Based on your ideas, I'm thinking a leftist scumbag might not be such a bad thing to be.
