Stu - From the link provided by Jello’s fan boi :

“So ding dong, Rush is gone. One down, 77 million to go.”

How do you interpret that mate ?

Jello has been feted by the fake left for so long that he’s got zero grounding in reality if he thinks the Trump election push is anything but a protest vote. Let’s face it, when you hope for the death of 77 million working class people who want nothing more than to stem the tide of destructive neoliberalism, then it’s safe to say you’re pulling your dick when you still claim to be anti-establishment.

Hey....Even Fagto lodged protest votes in safe ALP seats .....I guess it’s different when he does it ! Cause he’s such a unique, smart, critical thinker with an independent mind....lolololol.

Woo Hoo! For once some good news: Rush Limbaugh is dead! Dead!! DEAD!!! He went so far out of his way to hurt so many people, the whole time laughing his way to the bank.

No MAGA monster without him. No capital riots without him, really.

And no Ru$h at all without a toxic president named Reagan vetoing the renewal of the Fairness Doctrine in 1987. You know, the law requiring that if you talk shit on what is still the Public airwaves, you have to let the other side reply? The law people pushed to bring back when Obama took office in 2009, to reign in Fox, til Pelosi declared yet another urgent reform, “off the table”? Boy, do we need the Fairness Doctrine now.

And what would our corporate McNews be like without the Reagan regime deregulating corporate merger and hostile takeover laws – til our once proud TV/News networks found themselves under the thumbs of General Electric, Westinghouse, Disney and worse.

And how many Trumpsucklers would be threatening us at all if Clinton and Gingrich hadn’t gotten together and had a baby called the Telecommunications Act of 1996, erasing the law that even big ravenous barons could only own one paper and one station in each major area. Intentionally designed to open the floodgates, so Fox, Clear Channel, Sinclair and worse could swallow and annihilate almost all of them. So that All Hate All The Time is all you can find on the dial while driving across middle America.

So ding dong, Rush is gone. One down, 77 million to go. Enjoy the moment and I hope you dig the song. I wrote it clear back when Clinton was president, and the writing was on the wall. I was hoping I would never have to use it at all, but we sorta had no choice but to update and perform it now.

If there is a hell, he’s probably chuckling and enjoying a cigar right now, with McVeigh..

“He ranks with Father Coughlin and Joe McCarthy among the country’s most destructive demagogues.”
– Charles P. Pierce, Esquire

“I have never killed anyone, but I have read some obituary notices with great satisfaction”
– Clarence Darrow

“He made conservatism fun.”
-Mike Pence

I’d take his references to class war with a lot more credibility if he wasn’t punching down at 77 million working class Americans.

I agree with you that he’s a provocateur if you define provocateur as someone who seeks infamy at the expense of integrity.

Too much literalism ? Mate - I realise that he doesn’t literally wish those 77 million people dead. I also realise that he finds currency amongst his brain dead audience by stating that he’d prefer them dead. The worst bit is that I know you already know this to be the case.

But sure .....Jello Biafra is still cutting edge with the way he’s swallowed the CNN Nazi White Supremacy line like a 16 year old adolescent.

In case anyone is dull enough to miss the reference, “Jump the shark “Jello is saying he can’t wait for the death of the 77 million working class Americans who tried to use the only non violent means at their disposal to reject neoliberalism- that being an anti establishment protest vote.

But sure that’s cherry picking.....lol.

Silly old Jello can’t read the room anymore. He IS the Fckn establishment.

I agree Blowin, Jello's a knob a self righteous over opinionated lefty, his views are now the mainstream and have you ever listened to his spoken word crap? they use to play a bit on RRR even when my views were left leaning i couldn't stand him, his voice is just so grating.

I always thought as him and Henry Rollins in the same type of deal has a similar band past and path with all the political/social justice spoken word crap, but at least even with all the crap he speaks with his spoken word crap, he is actually just a really nice guy. (plus actually makes some decent music)

Anyway no surprise Facto a washed up wanna be ageing punk idolises him.

Anyway here is some of his fairly recent crap to give you an idea, could be reading a CNN opinion piece.

Still....if you really loved him you’d tell him to sort his scared old shit out.

That’s what Lori Maddox and Pamela Des Barres would have done if they were in your position. Maybe you’re not as much the committed groupie you think you are ? Maybe the ageing Jello needs more than just your perfume scented hand written poetry ? I’d wager he doesn’t need any more locks of your hair. True love is strong enough to survive a bit of truth. Go on , do him a favour .....let him know what a misled , irrelevant, irritating old cnt he’s become.

Perhaps suggest some testosterone shots ?

The thing you’re missing bloke, is that Jello is proudly revealing his stupidity there on video. No amount of promo stickers* are going to counter that hard reality. Listen to him wetting his adult nappies about Trump radicals being a violent threat when the actual threat is basically zero. Even the Capital Building copper being murdered with a fire extinguisher was a lie . That video has aged more in a month than “Give me convenience or give me death “ has aged in 40 years.

“ Charlottesville was a dry run “ ....oh FFS. He’s not even smart enough to distinguish between blue collar Trump supporters in Washington and Weirdo race protesters in Virginia.

*Yes bloke. That’s promotional material for a brand called Jello Biafra which is burning through any cultural capital it may have once held at an alarming rate.

“ Giving art a bad name since 1979”.....oh please. Posting this dross is as anti establishment as putting Billabong stickers on your bumper bar. Punk isn’t dead it’s just that Jello ain’t punk anymore. He’s mainstream. As alternative as Bert Newton with a similar visage.

BTW - Look , we are both well aware of your complete lack of originality or creativity and so everyone is in agreement that reposting memes is your best avenue for expressing the ideas of others that you wish to plagiarise, but could you at least restrict yourself to only posting a meme once if it’s not funny. Which they aren’t. It’s like you’re on a personal mission to strip all humour from Jim Carey’s back catalogue through extensive repetition and overuse. It’s a fckn shame. Jim Carey deserves better.

Hi Udo,

do you know much about 'Aragorn' and Steve Goddard? I ask because I have an 'Ocean Boulevard' twinny that I understand was made in the late 70s in Burleigh and it has initials 'SG'. My previous investigations had brought that name up and I assumed the SG was Steve Goddard. I also know this board once belonged to one of the Neilson brothers. I learned to surf on it.

I'd love to hear any insights if you or anyone else has any.
