Punk rock legend Johnny Rotten slammed wokeness in a recent interview with the Times UK.
Rotten even went on to blame it for the ‘collapse’ of the US.
As The New York Post reports:
In a recent profile with the Times UK, the aging punk rocker decried “cancel culture” and the activists who campaigned to tear down national monuments which they say promote historical racism. The statues include that of Winston Churchill, one of the UK’s most revered prime ministers.
He also blamed academia as well as the media for giving “the space” to “tempestuous spoilt children.”
“These people aren’t really genuinely disenfranchised at all,” said Lydon, 65. “They just view themselves as special. It’s selfishness and in that respect, it’s divisive and can only lead to trouble,” he said…
Now a US citizen, Lydon has increasingly shown support for President Trump since 2017, and expressed criticism of the media’s rumored liberal bias. He told the Times that President Joe Biden “doesn’t respect anything but the latest woke fashion trend,” and has catalyzed America’s “collapse.”
