GUEST,Mathew Why Protest Songs Against DJT won't work (95* d) Why Protest Songs Against DJT won't work 07 Mar 17

Protest songs in regards to Donald J. Trump are pointless and should stop.

I feel that this is an important topic which has not been discussed enough.

For those of you in Britain and Canada, when you turn on your TV do you see much mainstream support for Trump? Not really, its constant condemnation of the man.

From the mainstream media I've watched come out of the States, most outlets hate him as well. You can easily find references to hitler, etc.

My point is that a protest song does not seem like a protest song when the majority of people in the spotlight agree with the song.

When Maccoll was railing against Thatcher, he was doing so in a country that was extremely right wing, at the height of the cold war, during a time when the States had a right wing leader as well.

Mainstream media didnt have much to say in support of the bloke.

Let me say at this point that I do not support that yellow monkey, but that is a redundant point almost, as nearly everyone outside of the states (and around half of the people within the states) hates the man.

To my Yank friends down south, bite your lip, oppose him where it makes sense and show up to vote in 2018.

These protest songs about a man most people hate makes no sense to me.

As always I hope you people have a fine day. I apologize for not being able to articulate my thoughts as effectively as usual, I am on the tail end of a midnight shift.
