Nirvana, one of the most well known rock bands of the 90s and perhaps all time might be in the limelight for the wrong reasons this time around. Their bass player, Krist Novoselic posted a lengthy paragraph on his Facebook showing his utmost support for Donald Trump. His facebook has been deactivated or set to private as of now, either way, it’s inaccessible.
Trump knocked it out of the park, “with his threats to deploy the US military..” were his exact words and it’s surprising to say the least that these words are coming from a Nirvana player.
Nirvana had always been rebellious themed and against totalitarianism and conducted several welfare anti-gay ballot initiative concerts. Certainly not aligning with Trump’s right-wing ideologies. Why would Novoselic agree with anything Trump says?
The 55-year old has had liberal viewpoints and had said during the 2016 elections that he’ll vote for Gary Johnson, a liberal rather than Hillary Clinton or Trump himself.
Trump’s speech was a result of the ongoing protests and the continuous digital activism by those concerned with the Black Lives Matter movement.
The movement took a huge turn when George Floyd was brutally killed per se, by 4 Minneapolis police officers and fortunately Twitter didn’t let the news go astray. As of right now, protests are being held all over the country and have even gone violent at times unfortunately, hence causing the president to deliver a speech.
Trump referred to himself as ‘your president of law and order and an ally of all peaceful protesters’ as he said: ‘I am mobilising all available federal resources, civilian and military, to stop the rioting and looting, to end the destruction and arson and to protect the rights of law-abiding Americans, including your Second Amendment rights.”
Trump hinted that he’s willing to go to all means to stop the protests, even if it means establishing a martial law throughout every state. Such a decision directly contradicts the foundational idealogy of American and it’s constitution, Krist supporting the speech and claiming that Trump knows what’s better for the public is concerning to say the least.
Long time fans of Nirvana were quick to mercilessly cyber bully the bassist for his controversial response.
Throwing all sorts of curse words at him and crediting the rockstar as a disgrace to what Nirvana stood for.
The late Kurt Cobain definitely didn’t support any sort of military intervention, it didn’t happen at the time is another point but Novoselic supporting it isn’t what Cobain would’ve wanted.
Through thus notorious statement by Krist Novoselic, atleast people can get to know that Nirvana was more than just the lead, Cobain. As many netizens are claiming in irony!
