The vocalist and founding member of the Byrds, David Crosby, responded to Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello‘s tweet about the ex-Republican candidate DeAnna Lorraine who defended the white extremist Kyle Rittenhouse.
As you might remember, the demonstrations against police brutality in Kenosha, Wisconsin, started after a 29-years-old Black man, Jacob Blake, got shot seven times in the back by the police officers in front of his children.
During the protests, a 17-year-old white extremist, Kyle Rittenhouse, came to Kenosha armed and murdered two protestors, a 36-year-old father Joseph Rosenbaum, and 26-year-old skateboarder Anthony Huber.
On Twitter, the ex-Republican congressional candidate who lost to Nancy Pelosi, DeAnna Lorraine shared a tweet defending Kyle Rittenhouse and the murder of two young men. In her unfortunate tweet, Lorraine stated that:
“We need more young people like Kyle Rittenhouse and less like Greta Thunberg.”
Later, Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello commented on DeAnna Lorraine’s tweet by asserting:
“The United States Of America 2020 in one tweet“
The 79-year-old rock musician David Crosby didn’t remain silent on the unfortunate claims of Lorraine and joined Tom Morello’s criticism. In his tweet, Crosby implied that he agreed with DeAnna Lorraine, yet the sentence had to be re-formed backwards.
