New in PJ Media:
Steven Van Zandt is a longtime guitarist with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. He also played Silvio Dante in The Sopranos, as well as a number of other mobsters. Apparently, he has taken both Springsteen’s fanatical and unreflective Leftism and mob thuggishness deeply to heart and combined the two together; on Sunday, he tweeted a call to “Exterminate the (Republican) cockroaches.” He quickly deleted the tweet, but not because he thought better of it; in fact, he doubled down in a series of angry rants that demonstrated once again the ugly, hate-filled heart of the authoritarian Left.
Van Zandt’s additional tweets are gone now as well, after Breitbart published them in an article on Monday morning. What remains on Van Zandt’s Twitter feed, however, makes it abundantly clear that he is a classic case of one’s self-image not even coming close to matching reality. His account is full to a sickening degree of angry, expletive-filled invective against patriots.
Even before Van Zandt’s initial extermination tweet, on Friday one Twitter user asked him, “Why do you fill yourself with so much hate?” Van Zandt replied, “You talking to me? You can’t be talking to me! I’m the Love Man. I’m a peace loving ‘60s hippie. I’ve got nothing but love for the world!” Sure. He just wants people who love America and hold to traditional values to get out of his world.
The same Twitter user came back to Van Zandt’s “You talking to me?” with, “Yes, no other name was mentioned. That’s obviously a lie. It’s not words that count, but actions.” An enraged Van Zandt responded, “Really? Why don’t you list my hateful ‘actions’ Foxsucker before I disappear you out of my sight forever in a very peaceful loving way.”
Then on Sunday, Van Zandt waded into the Tennessee insurrection/gun ban controversy, denouncing “Republican White Supremicist scumbag cowards and pussies that need guns to feel like real men.” After he deleted his extermination tweet, he emphasized that he was not doing so because the old hippie had decided to show more peace and love to the world. He did so, he tweeted, “To avoid spending half my day deleting Foxsucking scumbag Russian bots and MAGOTT cockroaches like you! Go take away some women’s rights, keep some Black people from voting, go harass a Trans event, go shoot some kids, do what Republicans do best and get the f**k outta my feed!” He ended up deleting this one as well, showing that this dimwitted clown is at least to some degree capable of embarrassment, but his Twitter feed is still hair-raising.
There is more. Read the rest here.
