Jello Biafra on Barack Obama, Ralph Nader

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

Jello Biafra has a habit of speaking his mind, even when it's not what people want to hear. In the following clip, the former Dead Kennedys frontman and a popular fixture on the college lecture circuit, expresses a fear many American liberals have been uncomfortable voicing:

One of the dangers I find in the Barack Obama phenomenon is if he does turn out to be another insider, another Bill Clinton, it's gonna break the hearts of everybody who got off their ass to register to vote for the first time . . .

It's nice to see a bona-fide liberal unabashedly speak his mind and share his doubts about the Democratic candidate. It sometimes seems that any critique of Barack Obama is met with disdain by self-identified liberals and any mention of the junior senator's decidedly unimpressive legislative record is quickly reduced to conservative propaganda. But Jello Biafra is not conservative, not by a long shot and it will be pretty hard to explain away his concerns as anything even approaching conservative propaganda.

Biafra also mentions his proud allegiance to the Green Party as well as his intention to speak at the next day's rally for independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader.
