Paul J. Wills Sr. hates U2. All of ’em, but Bono in particular. Below we reprint a letter from today’s Chicago Sun-Times.
“The halftime show put on during the Super Bowl was heart-moving and a
disgrace. The disgrace I’m talking about is the un-American band with
its anti-American lead singer Bone Head, or Bono.”
“Not only was it a disgrace but a slap in the face to all Americans who have
realized their patriotic love of America. This Irish band’s front man, Bono,
has made a habit of speaking negatively about the United States and its capitalist and imperialistic ways. Quoting from the Nation/ World section (and ironically in Super Bowl Sunday’s edition) headlined ”Global trade critics bash U.S.”: It’s strange company for a singer who once railed against American imperialism in ”Bullet the Blue Sky” and whose albums regularly lambaste Western consumerism and big business.”
I am outraged and disgusted that this anti-American piece of trash was chosen and accepted the honors of playing halftime at the Super Bowl. His waving his flag-lined jacket, in a phony attempt to show support for America, must surely have been motivated by greed for American dollars and made me want to vomit.
I’m for sending this dirt bag back to Ireland and informing the American public who buys this moron’s music just what a scumbag he is. This is the
same Bono who consistently speaks out against America, and he also advocates
”debt forgiveness” for Third World Countries. This ”debt forgiveness”
would pay off any debt these Third World countries have with the International Monetary Fund, or World Bank.
Doesn’t sound too bad until you realize that the United States is the
largest contributor to the IMF, World Bank. These Third World countries
would receive ”debt relief” at the expense of American taxpayers.
I suggest that Bono and U2 give the millions of dollars they’ve surely made
off the same Americans they seem to have a hatred toward, and start sending
it out to these Third World countries that need this ”debt relief” to help
solve their money problems.
Maybe by this time next year they’ll have replaced the person or persons in
charge of hiring the halftime Super Bowl entertainment with somebody with a
brain. Hopefully, that person is American who hires another American entertainer who loves America. Hmm, maybe somebody like Ted Nugent?”
