Billy Joel Made The Oddest Trump Protest
Trump has been protested in all sorts of ways including a giant Baby Trump float, as seen in the London Protest. Billy Joel did not do anything as obscene at least in appearance. After the Charlottesville protest, Joel felt that Trump was wrong for saying that there good people on both sides of the conflict. So he decided to protest but in a different way.
Joel was interviewed by CBS and talked about his protest.
“I had to do something that night,” Joel responded. “The president said [after the Charlottesville rally], you know, ‘ There are some good people on that side …’ No, Nazis aren’t good people.
“It really enraged me. My old man, his family, got wiped out. They were slaughtered in Auschwitz. He and his parents were able to get out. But then he was in the U.S. Army during the war and fought with Patton and was shot at by Nazis. My family suffered. And I think I actually have a right to do that,” Joel exclaimed.”
Joel decided to protest Trump. As a symbol of his protest, he wore a patch Star of David in reference to the Holocaust during his next concert after the protests. He would later buy himself a Star of David necklace as he felt Nazis were becoming mainstream.

But isn’t this extreme? You can’t condone the violence that erupted in Charlottesville as there was no need. But people are complex. There were good on both sides of that protest, I can’t speak for the white nationalists. But before they showed up there were people there protesting the removal of the monument like historians and those who feel that we should not try and destroy our past. As they say, those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. So it helps no one to destroy the monuments of the past.
But Billy Joel apparently didn’t see things this way. He instead listened to the MSM spin and believed wholeheartedly that Trump was supporting White Nationalists. But what can you expect from a Celebrity?
