LAME: Bruce Springsteen Releases New Anti-Trump Protest Song (VIDEO)

Bruce Springsteen has taken it upon himself to be the left’s voice against Trump, and he has released a new song, in attempt to bring back the era of great protest songs.

Newsmax outlines the “creative” angst of the new tune:

Bruce Springsteen released a new protest song Wednesday that bashes President Donald Trump, calling him a “con man” and referencing several controversial comments made by Trump.

“That’s What Makes Us Great” was written by Joe Grushecky, who sent the song to Springsteen for his consideration.

… “Don’t tell me a lie/ And sell it as fact/ I’ve been down that road before/ And I ain’t going back,” some of the lyrics read.

Another part of the song says, “Don’t you brag to me/ That you never read a book/ I never put my faith/ In a con man and his crooks.” The lyrics also speak of immigration issues.

Grushecky told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette he couldn’t support Trump after he appeared to mock a disabled reporter.

Occupy Democrats gleefully reprint the lyrics for you here.

That’s What Makes Us Great

Joe Grushecky:

They come from everywhere

A longing to be free

They come to join us here

From sea to shining sea

Together:

And they all have a dream

As people always will

To be safe and warm

In that shining city on the hill

Grushecky:

Some wanna slam the door

Instead of opening the gate

Aw, let’s turn this thing around

Before it gets too late

Together:

It’s up to me and you

Love can conquer hate

I know this to be true

That’s what makes us great

Springsteen:

Don’t tell me a lie

And sell it as a fact

I’ve been down that road before

And I ain’t goin’ back

And don’t you brag to me

That you never read a book

I never put my faith

In a con man and his crooks

Together:

I won’t follow down that path

And tempt the hands of fate

Aw, let’s turn this thing around

Before it gets too late

It’s up to me and you

Love can conquer hate

Here’s Springsteen justifying his opposition, in spite of many of his fans who supported Trump.

SPRINGSTEEN: Our hearts and our spirits are with all of the people that marched yesterday. And the E-Street Band, we are part of the new resistance. … Plenty of good people voted for Donald Trump on the basis that I’ve written about for thirty years which is industrialization of the United States and globalization and technilogical revolution hit many people very very very very hard, and some of the recovery that occurred in the United States didn’t really get down to a lot of those folks. And so it makes you sort of easy pickings for a demigod which I believe Donald Trump is.
