Elton John Hates Being English

Elton John Hates Being English

Elton John Hates Being English

What Elton John said. The legendary British rock singer, who’s now 72, went into a 60-second rant in Verona on his farewell concert tour. condemning Brexit. He says he’s “ashamed” of his country for leaving the EU. Moreover, he calls himself “European,” not an “English idiot.”

Here’s some of Elton’s diatribe:

“I’m ashamed of my country for what it has done. It’s torn people apart … I am sick to death of politicians, especially British politicians. 

“I am sick to death of Brexit. I am a European. I am not a stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot.”

Now “Rocketman,” the new Elton John biopic, has just come out to positive reviews. I wonder if Brexit supporters on the other side of the the Pond will want to see it after this insult.

Nor is this the first time Elton has railed against Brexit. Last year he said that British people didn’t know what they were voting for when they voted for Brexit (the stupid prats!). On top of that, he called Brexit a “new cereal”:

“There’s a new cereal called Brexit. You eat it and you throw up afterwards.”

Well, thanks for sharing that, Elton.

On the other hand, there’s Who frontman Roger Daltrey, who gave a colorful defense of Brexit not long ago. Brilliant!

But we in America have this in common with our cousins in Merry Olde England — celebrity idiots who also despise the nation and her ordinary people. For example, Johnny Depp said this about President Trump:

“When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?”

Or Star Trek actor George Takei:

And then there’s the perennial abortion-maven Alyssa Milano, who says she’s “pro-life,” but then called for a “sex strike” so that unfettered abortion might be available everywhere. Because we common women need her to tell us how to think.

Milano also joins the Hollywood crowd who want to stick it to the good people of Georgia for — gasp! — having the audacity to support unborn babies.

There are also celebrities like Alec Baldwin, Jimmy Kimmel, and Amy Schumer who despise the NRA — an organization made up of American citizens.

In other words, celebrity gasbags are the same everywhere. They hate us, they think we’re inferior, but don’t mind taking our money.

I’m sorry, dear old England. We feel your pain.

    Hey UK! We’ll trade you an Alyssa Milano and an Alec Baldwin for Roger Daltrey! Order within 30 days, and get a free George Takei as a bonus! Oh My!

    What is it with trendy Leftist ”artistes”? As soon as they gain some notoriety and affluence they turn on the societies that gave them their wealth and status. Perhaps many of those who aspire to life on the stage have fundamental psychological problems relating to personality? I suspect that also applies to the more extreme products of schools of social studies too.

      “What is it with trendy Leftist ”artistes”? As soon as they gain some notoriety and affluence they turn on the societies that gave them their wealth and status. ”

      It’s displaced guilt from the wealth and celebrity. Some of them quietly build a mentoring foundation to help disadvantaged youth, others preen onstage and lecture us about saving the planet.

      Malignant Narcissism

      I stopped supported Homosexual Rights because of nazis like Elton John and George Takei. I’ll start respecting their rights again once they demonstrate respect for the rights of anyone other than themselves.

  • Brat says:

    Long time fan of Roger Daltrey! If I’d still been in England I, too, would have voted FOR Brexit…As Daltrey says, we managed to travel around Europe before the EU, I’m sure we’ll be just fine after Brexit…

  • So if Brexit happens, will Sir Elton give back his knighthood? Asking for a friend.

    The Queen has abdicated !

  • Irobot says:

    It’s funny as the rest of Europe do not consider Great Britain to be part of Europe. Friends from European countries have scoffed when we called England part of Europe.

    I’m so old, I remember……
    When the minstrel’s “spontaneous” notoriety harvesting ploy was…
    “What’s with all this misogyny…?” at a fundraiser concert for Ms. Clinton’s FIRST failure to out-intersectionality
    a mulatto male with a soupcon of Islam wafting about his clean, articulate self.
    (In fairness, he had a lot of…. presence.)
    I look forward to trading soy, pork, corn, and (actual)SPAM, and beans, with “Our English Cousins”… over there, once they’re free to do so.
    I hold no (lasting) grudge over the loss of Callard & Bowser butterscotch.
    But for the mercy of Western civilization everywhere, PLEASE feel free to keep ALL the freehouse Kidney Pie!

    when visiting NZ, Sir ton got into a fist fight with the SISTER of a a high school classmate. How quiveringly butch of both of them!

  • Ankylus says:

    I always admired the chutzpah of Alyssa Milano’s sex strike. What? I’m supposed to be upset that a woman I will never meet will withhold sex from somebody else I will never meet? (And, if she does, that person can decide whether they will permit her to punish them for something someone else has done.) Or is she implying that I actually had a shot but for some other state’s law? Any way you slice it, it’s so stupid it’s incredible. And the fact that she doesn’t know it show’s how stupid she is.

    Reg Dwight isn’t a stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot, he’s just a stupid, bog-standard, idiot.

  • Greg says:

    Last assassin actor was John Wilkes Booth. I believe his victim was also held in high regard.

  • Joseph F says:

    Correct me if I am wrong but as a peer of the realm isn’t this treasonous? Can’t he be stripped of his knighthood?

  • Fen says:

    “I am not a stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot”

    Bigoted statement based on ignorant stereotypes.

    I’m constantly amazed at how little class the “woke & sophisticated” crowd has.

    We see the same thing with the NeverTrumpers lecturing us about Trump’s incivility:
    “that pussy grabbing jackass has lowered the standard for political discourse!”
