Lemmy To Barack The Vote

Posted by on November 5, 2012

While this isn’t all that surprising, Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister announced who he’ll  be supporting in tomorrow’s Presidential election. And guess what? It’s not Mitt Romney, who he called a “fucking monster.” Performing last week at a  Chuck Berry tribute concert, during an interview with a Rolling Stone, the reporter recalled an interview he’d had with Berry. The rock legend teared up, saying his father told him that one day there would be a black president, and that he was happy to have lived to have seen it. Lemmy’s response:

I would have said America wasn’t ready for it. And I don’t think they were, because they’re trying to drag him down now. I mean, the poor fucker’s only just gotten rid of all that George Bush shit that he left, or is trying to. And he’s being stonewalled by the fucking Congress all the time. I don’t know how he’s gotten anything done. They should be glad. I mean the alternative is Mitt Romney. Please, please don’t vote for Mitt Romney. Fuck him. Repeal abortion law is the first thing he’ll do. Fucking monster.

Of course, it isn’t all that surprising that Lemmy would back Obama, given that he’s not the most conservative gentleman around, and has had black girlfriends in the past. But usually, the older people get, the more to the right they lean. Then again, Lemmy didn’t have great things to say about the upcoming Rolling Stones tour, either. “Five shows? That’s not very impressive, really,” he told the magazine. “Mind you, I know how they feel. None of us are getting any younger.” Regardless, good thing there’s only one day left, or some right-wing bloggers would come up with the headline “Nazi memorabilia collector on smack supports Obama.”
