Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters Loves Bernie Sanders
Pink Floyd singer and bassist Roger Waters loves Bernie Sanders and would like for him to become the next president of the United States.
“He seems to speak the truth, far as one can tell at this point,” Waters said. “He seems prepared to stand up against big money and the banks and stand up for the predicaments of minorities, the middle class and the working class in this country.”
“It is true that people become marginalized if their politics appear too far to the left,” he said.
Waters praised Sanders for understanding the basic needs of the people and for developing a plan to provide for them.
“That is why I admire Sanders. When he speaks the truth, he sounds very left wing, but that is because we have been fed this right-wing bullshit by the whole of the mainstream media since the Second World War,” Waters said. “And it has gotten worse and worse and worse, and the outlets for dissenting voices have become fewer and fewer. So he is bound to sound out of step, because he is! And that is what is so good about him.”
Waters said that while Hillary Clinton is a “far better” alternative than Republican candidates “by a long, long way,” he is worried about her.
“Hillary worries me,” he said “I have an awful worry that she might become the first woman president to drop a fucking nuclear bomb on somebody. There is something scarily hawkish about her, and she has that politician look down of, ‘You are never going to get a word of truth out of me.'”
