We’re overly fond of goofy single-purpose Facebook pages here at DM, and lately we’ve been loving “Berned in D.C.” It seems to be less than a week old, and its premise is super simple: images of the surprisingly popular candidate for the Democratic party’s presidential nomination are paired with Maximumrocknroll-ishly purist “quotations” about underground punk. Given that Sanders and independent punk share an ideology that rejects corporate power, this actually works really well.
What the American people are angry about is they understand that they did not cause this recession.
Teachers did not cause this recession. Firefighters and police officers who are being attacked daily by governors all over this country did not cause this recession. Construction workers did not cause this recession.
This recession was caused by a few so-called punk and hardcore bands who charged obscene door cover and priced their merch like it was goddamned Prada.
