The Conservative Leadership Race Just Got Interesting

Not really at least not yet, but it sure sounds like Bryan Adams (yes, that Bryan Adams) is gearing up for a run. Based on his first campaign speech, he appears to be trying to split the Derek Sloan vote.

CUTS LIKE A KNIFE. A song by me. Tonight was supposed to be the beginning of a tenancy of gigs at the @royalalberthall, but thanks to some fucking bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy bastards, the whole world is now on hold, not to mention the thousands that have suffered or died from this virus. My message to them other than “thanks a fucking lot” is go vegan. To all the people missing out on our shows, I wish I could be there more than you know. It’s been great hanging out in isolation with my children and family, but I miss my other family, my band, my crew and my fans. Take care of yourselves and hope we can get the show on the road again soon. I’ll be performing a snippet from each album we were supposed to perform for the next few days.

Clearly some work on messaging is needed. That vegan stuff isn’t likely to play well in Alberta. The casual racism and unhinged conspiracy peddling is decently crafted, however.

He has since apologized…sort of. He didn’t explain how popping off like a crazy person is supposed to promote veganism and the unproven man-made virus stuff is still just hangin’ out there, but it’s something, I guess.

INTO THE FIRE. Title track from the same album. Apologies to any and all that took offence to my posting yesterday. No excuse, I just wanted to have a rant about the horrible animal cruelty in these wet-markets being the possible source of the virus, and promote veganism. I have love for all people and my thoughts are with everyone dealing with this pandemic around the world. Here’s the appropriately titled song that would have been performed tonight at the @royalalberthall .

I doubt that this is going to ruin the guy, but it certainly goes to show how easy it can be to undo decades of good work. There’s nothing wrong with having a rant or venting or whatever you want to call it, but sometimes it’s good to keep that stuff off of the public internet. Just because you have thoughts and the technological ability to transmit them to the entire world doesn’t always mean you should. That goes for everyone, famous or not.
