What If I Were To Tell You That Bono Just Ripped Terrorists
Posted by Casey on November 6, 2007
We all know that Bono is a media darling, and every time he speaks they put his words in print. We are usually inundated with Bono quotes and images for days after the event, but not this time. Why? Well usually Bono is advocating a liberal cause that gets him the great media publicity. However, when Bono speaks with a little more conservative zeal … nothing.
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Bono said of the Islamic fundamentalists:
I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It’s real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let’s not pretend it isn’t.
Bono goes on to show that he does not engage in Bush Derangement Syndrome, despite the urgings of the Rolling Stone’s anti-Bush reporter. In response to the reporter’s statement that “But this Administration destroyed that.” when they discussed the outpouring of support for the United States immediately following the attacks of Spetember 11, Bono says of President Bush,
There was a plan there, you know. I think the president genuinely felt that if we could prove a model of democracy and broad prosperity in the Middle East, it might defuse the situation.
This time there doesn’t seem to be the media affection we typically see for Bono. No Bush Derangement Syndrome, no MSM coverage.
