Punk rock icon Henry Rollins joins me on Off The Grid to talk the state of politics today, the 2016 elections and why Bernie Sanders has their vote. Plus, Rollins sounds off on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, why he had to “clean up after Bush,” and the death of protest music.



What do you think about what Rollins has to say?

I would hate to think I would vote for the same person that Jesse Ventura supported. Thankfully I won't be voting for Bernie.

If you want a progressive pipe dream utopia that will fail than vote for this man. More government control equals more and more tyranny as power is consolidated into the corporate controlled oligarchy this man is kneeling before.





If he really wanted what is best for this country he would be saying one thing.....We should follow the constitution again and put individual rights first. He puts the rights of the masses first and this is why we currently live under a oligarchy form of government. I find it so ironic that people cry about corporations while the ideals they follow cause the very thing they cry about.




Progressive ideals fail in personal and public life. TPTB that control both political parties push progressive ideals for a very good reason. They create a weak and entitled population that is always chasing it's tail from one special interest to another.

I'm PROUD to be supporting the same man Jesse and Rollins are!

The similarities to my positions are amazing!
1. Atheist (I don't argue with people about whether or not there's a god.)
2. Marriage equality support! The Supreme Court did something right!
3. Musical influence. (My music is Led Zeppelin era, but Henry has fantastic points on this!)
4. I've never been to Iran or Afghanistan, and I wouldn't go, so we differ there.
5. Go Bernie!!! Feel the Bern!

I'd have to say I agree with Henry's positions completely.

Would love to know what Henry had to say.

Wow.

Just wow.

Bernie Sanders, Jesse?

I thought you were against government encroachment, not looking to support its expansion.

I'm trying very hard to find the dark secret, statement, position, or voting stance that I profoundly disagree with that every politician in my lifetime to date has held, made, or taken that would lead me not to vote for them. In the case of Bernie Sanders, so far I can't find it. The closest thing I can find is a semantic difference of opinion I have with him over his reasons for opposing various free trade agreements.

He may be the first person I vote for in my lifetime, as he does not - so far - seem to be merely the lesser of two evils (from my point of view... I respect the views of those who disagree and find him abhorrent or what not.) I can't believe I'm saying this, as I have not voted in a primary or election (other than local ballot measures) in my life.

Ventura & Rollins' endorsements don't mean much to me as I differ with them on several issues critical to me (though I certainly respect their accomplishments and artistry.) But not with Bernie Sanders' positions. So far I find myself agreeing 99.99999999999999% wholeheartedly with every position he espouses.

I will, however, go and hide now, as I have no desire to defend that stance.

Peace.

I would like to know as well because the player never shows up for me either.

When I was still interested in what JV had to say the only way I could watch was at ORA.TV

I think you guys that are saying Sanders is for Government encroachment, entitlement, errosion of freedoms and a welfare state and that progressive ideas fail in America....I think you guys miss the point.

The real problem in America, is that our politicians are bought and paid for by lobbyists and special interest groups...not good special interest groups that have some higher purpose like the environment etc, but special intererests as it relates to corporations.

Our entire American Goverment is under the control of the Military Industrial complex and big corporations. That's the biggest problem. You guys cry about socialists and Obama and the constitution and all lives matter and that of course you hate socialism, but you fail to see that Sanders is NOT in the pockets of a big corporation.

So that's the problem. Sanders has my vote.

And again the second problem is that even if you hate Sanders policies...such as, I know he wants tighter gun control legislation of some sort....that shouldn't be the game changer. It should be that Walker, Cruz, Bush, Clinton...they're all being controlled and paid for by big corporations...

You should want the candidate and party that is least controlled by the corporations, whomever that turns out to be.

I like Bernie Sanders. I always have. We tend to agree on most issues, and I think he’s genuine and principled in the positions he takes. He seems to be one of those rare birds in politics with a sense of morals, ethics and a desire to do the right things. Quite unusual.

If he does become President, which I doubt since he’s not looney enough to satisfy the masses, then what should we expect? All the best intentions could be easily undone by the mad-dog, war mongering pack of psychotics we call the U.S. Congress. I would be surprised if the maniacal right-wing “think tank” (term used loosely) isn’t already plotting the next level obstruction strategy and conspiracy schemes in the event Bernie takes the Whitehouse. You could expect a constant barage of slanderous rhetoric, lynchmob committees, threats of government shutdowns, good legislative proposals never reaching the floor, character assasination, ludicrous conspiracy theories, blah, blah, blah... It will just be business as usual in Congress, and nothing will get done.

Like I said, I like Bernie and think he’s the best of the current options. If he miraculously becomes President, though, I surely do pity him. He’ll be up against a sick, vengeful bunch of back-stabbing sociopaths. He’s running for a thankless job...

While I don't agree with many of Sander's position on issues, I do come away with the feeling that he has a genuine concern about the state of this nation and seeks to make things better. His recent stop in Seattle was interrupted and overtaken by 2 BLM activists, who did nothing to further their cause by highjacking the procedures. It was his response that many found weak and lacked the conviction of a potential POTUS:

it was a lose lose situation, if he lashes out against them it would be even more politicized. His recovery since that interruption is impressive, the speeches have been massive.

Even guys like Putin have moments of confusion when people rush him acting like fools, despite the fact that he is generally seen as strong.

hi Jesse. an interesting dialogue. i share many of your and Henry's points of view, insofar as an outsider can do regarding American socio-political matters.

Good interview. People like Jesse Ventura & Henry Rollins help keep my last shred of sanity among all the brainwashed conservative psychobabble that shows up and takes a dump on every conspiracy-minded subject out there these days.

Also, Jesse you should definitely take Henry's advice and listen to Savages. They're pretty darn amazing:

a reply to: amazing

So Rand Paul, who is Libertarian on most issues, is in the back pocket of corporations?

Can the same be said for any other Libertarian minded candidates that you don't hear of because of media bias?

No. I think that if I voted, I would vote for the candidates that matched an ideology of sustainability and improvement AND who aren't in the pockets of corporations rather than a guy who's ideologies are terrible.
