I DON’T THINK BLACKIE LAWLESS KNOWS WHO HITLER WAS

This is Blackie Lawless talking about Barack Obama in Classic Rock magazine (via Blabbermouth):

“He’s one of these old-time 60s radicals from way back. He thinks he’s going to change the world and he’s hell-bent on doing that. When he stood there the night of the nomination and he said that he intended on ‘fundamentally changing’ America – a chill ran down my back. Thousands of people were just standing there, wildly applauding, and it reminded me of Hitler standing on the steps of the Reichstag.”

Here’s what went through my mind imediately after I read this:

  1. Blackie Lawless is still alive?
  2. Did Blackie Lawless just compare a black dude to Adolf Hitler?
  3. Seriously, didn’t Blackie Lawless die a few years ago?
  4. Did Hitler propose health care reform shortly before committing mass genocide, or were his death panels unrelated?
  5. Blackie Lawless is still alive???

In all seriousness: I don’t care if you don’t like Obama. I’m feeling pretty let down by the guy these days myself. But try not to sound like a total fucktard when expressing that opinion, okay?
