Though the entertainment industry is known for being a stronghold of globalist and Marxist groupthink, every once in a while an actor or artist rebels against the politically correct orthodoxy and comes out in favor of common-sense, individualist policies.
Legendary former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr is one of those free-thinkers.
In an interview with BBC’s Newsnight, Starr reiterated his support for the groundbreaking 2016 Brexit decision and implied that the government should stop whining about about the Brexit decision and “get on with” the process of carrying out the will of the people.
“The people voted and, you know, they have to get on with it,” Ringo stated. “Suddenly, it’s like, ‘Oh, well, we don’t like that vote.’ What do you mean you don’t like that vote? You had the vote, this is what won, let’s get on with it.”
After reiterating again how he agreed with Brexit, Starr added: “But don’t tell Bob Geldof.”
He also pointed out, “I think it’s a great move. I think, you know, to be in control of your country is a good move.”
Starr had previously revealed that he voted to leave the EU because it was a “shambles” in August of last year, stating “We’re all stuck with people who want to make arrangements for their own country and don’t think for the other countries. Britain should be out and get back on its own feet.”
It’s refreshing to see that some celebrities have a modicum of common sense when it comes to current issues, in an age where vagina hats and rants about sexism and “white privilege” are the only commentary we hear coming from the one percent.
