Conservatives angrily lash out at Willie Nelson for backing Beto O’Rourke: ‘I thought you were a patriot’

Published

Some of Willie Nelson’s conservative fans are angry that the country legend is throwing his support behind Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke.

Nelson posted an announcement on his Facebook page that he’ll join his sons, Lukas and Micah Nelson, and musicians Joe Ely, Carrie Rodriguez and Tameca Jones to perform at a rally for O’Rourke, a Texas congressman challenging Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, reported KTRK-TV.

That outraged some of his fans, who lashed out against the 85-year-old Nelson on social media.

“Willie, your pot smoking has injured your brain!” said fan Rhonda Knapp. “You would be well served to stay out of politics!!”

“Goodbye Willie, I don’t support socialist commies!” complained David R. Williams. “You’re not going to advertise on my FB page either. Like we say in Texas, Now Git!”

“Good bye Willie…you are not on the right side,” lamented Melanie Philip. “Take a look around you and do the right thing…I always thought you were a patriot…wow what a let down. You would pick a socialist agenda and an Anti American fellow like BETO, shame on you.”

“I was going to buy his new release not now,” said Clara Peeples. “They will never learn I don’t care what he thinks about politics.”

“Willie use to be someone I looked up to,” posted Alan Huey. “Now he is just another John McCain with bitter hate and venomous garbage in his heart ….to bad …should have stuck to singing and smoking alittle weed.”

Nelson, who also performed with the guitar-playing O’Rourke in July, has helped raise more than $48 million to support farmers through the Farm Aid concerts he began organizing in 1985.

“It has been pretty obvious for a very long time that Willie Nelson is not a conservative,” said fan Kathy Goodwin Oleksy.

Published

An attorney for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange accused the Trump administration of extortion in a London court on Monday.

The WikiLeaks attorney appeared at Woolwich Crown Court along with U.S. prosecutors, who argued that Assange should be extradited the United States, where he faces 18 charges and up to 175 years in jail.

Attorneys for Assange previously told the court that former Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) tried to broker a pardon deal between the White House and Assange if he would agree to say that Russia was not the source of hacked Democratic Party emails.

Published

Ivanka Trump was hammered on Twitter for posting pictures of her trip to India where she praised the "grandeur" of the Taj Mahal -- with herself featured front and center before it.

Donald Trump's daughter, a senior White House adviser, has taken to using her Twitter feed to promote herself (usually via photos or video clips) as she travels the world, presumably representing the United States. Monday morning's tweet was no exception, with the two pictures accompanied by, "The grandeur and beauty of the Taj Mahal is awe inspiring!" followed by emojis of the American flag and India's flag.
