The Charismatic Bomber

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When do you think we can shut up about The Rolling Stone cover with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on it?  It’s not his fault he’s an attractive kid- its not Rolling Stones fault that he opted to blow some peoples legs off and became newsworthy.

Rolling Stone is the fat out of touch uncle who sits there and tells you how he saw Deep Purple for $7.00 back in the day.  The Archie Bunker of music who’s political opinions are almost as lame as their album reviews.  Out of touch, rather pathetic and an embarrassment to those who followed in their footsteps.

Jack Osbourne is the kid of a rock legend.  Nothing more than egg and sperm all grown up and thinking we give a fuck about his opinion.  I don’t- Rolling Stone shouldn’t, and like the dick who chants “usa usa!”, he’s looking for attention in his latest publicity farce.

A petition to RS to have the proceeds of the ‘The Bomber’ cover to the Boston victims.  I was hanging out with a friend of mine who said that prosthetic are not covered by Insurance and cost about $80k.  I find that rather odd but not interested enough to bother but my theory on this shit runs true.  If it is a governmental act that causes you harm- the government should pay.  If GI Joe blows off his own leg in Iraq he gets a free bionic- so should the dude watching the marathon.  Our Government is always barking how it protects us, well it failed to do so that day in Beantown so pay up.  Im sure there is a warehouse somewhere full of fake legs anyway.

back to Jack so I can tie this rant to music via offspring…

‘Enough talk. Challenge @RollingStone to #DonateAllProfits from latest issue to Boston bombing victims. Sign petition.’ he tweeted Friday, including a link to a petition he started on change.org.

‘Rolling Stone Magazine: We challenge you to donate all profits from the August 2013 issue to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings,’ he wrote.

‘Glamorizing a suspected terrorist on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine is not controversial, it’s just wrong,’ Jack wrote.

‘Innocent people have been killed or injured by the alleged actions of this man. There is no justification for awarding him a cover spot traditionally reserved for entertainment icons. It is this kind of action that encourages other sick individuals to act out in hopes of earning notoriety or martyrdom for their cause.’  Jack noted he does not take issue with the cover story, but with the cover itself.

Rolling Stone defended the story in a statement released earlier this week.  ‘The cover story we are publishing this week falls within the traditions of journalism and Rolling Stone’s long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day,’ it read in part.

Currently, the petition has earned over 150 signatures, yeah that’ll do it
