Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste has branded America a “fucked up racist country” in a hard-hitting anti-Trump post shared on Instagram.

Sharing a picture of a traditional American Thanksgiving painting, Droste wrote: “”Trump’s America” is a continuation of white supremacy. I CANNOT deal with whites that feel “marginalized”. This country is built on blood, and all y’all “make America great again” idiots are literally harkening back to a fictional idea of the past.”

He continued: “White supremacy still lives, but ur attempt to make it “great again” is a huge step back on progress. It’s a fantasy for white people that never existed and for everyone else was a collective nightmare.”

After referencing the recent vandalism of a New York City park named in honour of late Beastie Boys rapper Adam Yauch, Droste argued: “Domestically, Trump has incited so many hate crimes in just 10 days it surpasses 9/11…. The fuck were we thinking voting in a reality TV star? Wanted to shake up the system? So did I! But I didn’t choose a candidate that invited hatred and appoints literal white supremacists to their cabinet. How’s that for fucking with the country? U like it?”

“My rights as a gay man are in jeopardy…. and millions of others are even worse off,” he continued, before concluding: “P.S. “Alt right” is a bullshit term to normalize white supremacy. FIGHT.”

Who else is excited for Thanksgiving? So much yummy food! Yay! Yummmmm! Oh hai!?? What? Wait, we slaughtered millions of Native Americans and stole their land? Yayyyyyy! You know what else is cool? We are a fucked up racist country and stop with ur bullshit "but whites can be discriminated against too!"….or "just because we voted Trump doesn't mean we're racist!"…oh, honey, your poor white privilege. "Trump's America" is a continuation of white supremacy. I CANNOT deal with whites that feel "marginalized". This country is built on blood, and all y'all "make America great again" idiots are literally harkening back to a fictional idea of the past. White supremacy still lives, but ur attempt to make it "great again" is a huge step back on progress. It's a fantasy for white people that never existed and for everyone else was a collective nightmare. Let's make America great again? So let's spray paint swastikas on (RIP) Beastie Boy's Adam Yauch memorial PLAYGROUND? Somehow, I have more liberal sound minded people on here than the band does on FB….but make no mistake. You have voted for a candidate that is ENDORSED by the KKK…if that isn't enough to take a look in the mirror, not sure you have a chance. "But the emails !!!", let's just pretend all that shit is TRUE. Like, ok. Let's just say Hillary is a horrible lying warmonger….guess what? Domestically, Trump has incited so many hate crimes in just 10 days it surpasses 9/11…. The fuck were we thinking voting in a reality TV star? Wanted to shake up the system? So did I! But I didn't choose a candidate that invited hatred and appoints literal white supremacists to their cabinet. How's that for fucking with the country? U like it? My rights as a gay man are in jeopardy…. and millions of others are even worse off. So eat your turkey, and be grateful you aren't under attack because if you voted for Trump you're pretty much saying your white privilege "trumps" the millions of people that are victims of the hate he enabled and encouraged amongst "the white working class"…for the rest of us (and I'm not religious) ….God Help Us…P.S. "Alt right" is a bullshit term to normalize white supremacy. FIGHT

REM’s Michael Stipe has offered a different interpretation of Trump’s victory in the US Presidential election, saying: “Clearly it was a protest vote against the establishment.”

He added: “Hillary Clinton represented the establishment very well, so rather than people voting for a racist, xenophobic agenda, an intolerant agenda, I think they were just trying to smash the machine.”

Meanwhile, Green Day spoke out against Donald Trump during their AMAs performance last night (November 20).

While singing the band’s recent single ‘Bang Bang’, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong led a chant of “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA” in protest against the President-elect.
