• John Lennon Might Maybe Have Been a Secret Republican

    Get ready, hippy liberals. Because you are about to have your entire mind exploded to death!

    Fred Seaman [Lennon's personal assistant] worked alongside the music legend from 1979 to Lennon's death at the end of 1980 and he reveals the star was a Ronald Reagan fan who enjoyed arguing with left-wing radicals who reminded him of his former self…

    He says, "John, basically, made it very clear that if he were an American he would vote for Reagan because he was really sour on (Democrat) Jimmy Carter…

    "I also saw John embark in some really brutal arguments with my uncle, who's an old-time communist… He enjoyed really provoking my uncle… Maybe he was being provocative… but it was pretty obvious to me he had moved away from his earlier radicalism.

    Wait a minute! Hold the phone! Do you mean to tell me that multi-millionaire John Lennon expressed support for Ronald Reagan — who took office a month-and-a-half after Lennon's death — at the tail end of the least effective Democratic administration in several decades? And he thought — during a time when Soviets were lining up in the driving snow for bread — that Communism is silly? According to some guy?

    Well, that…

    changes…

    EVERYTHING!

    I'm sure that a lot of liberals are pretty embarrassed right now in light of this new information. I'd expect a pretty big windfall of conversions to conservativism any time now.
