A couple weeks ago, I presented the case against Bruce Springsteen.

The faux blue-collar rock singer makes "audio ruin porn," I said. His state is run by a clown who idolizes him and who he has not done enough to stop, I said. He hasn't been politically relevant since the Reagan administration, I said.

I was then subjected to relentless trolling and even a couple threats of violence!

But that's OK. Because today, the Boss done brought his lunchpail to the freedom factory, and put in an honest day's work bustin' on bigots.

Bruce announced a last-minute boycott of North Carolina on account of the still Southern state's ridiculous anti-gay, anti-trans law. His Sunday show is canceled.

“To my mind, it’s an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress,” he wrote. “Taking all of this into account, I feel that this is a time for me and the band to show solidarity for those freedom fighters… Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards.”
What’s left to say? Bruuuuuuuuce! Bruuuuuuuuuuce!
