LAST IN LINE bassist Phil Soussan has accused Democrats of "exhibiting antiquated Soviet communist tactics and behavior."
Soussan, who frequently tweets in support of President Trump's policies, took to the social media platform last week to assail Democrats for their efforts to impeach the 45th U.S. president.
"Democrats have become so far left that they are now exhibiting antiquated Soviet Communist tactics and behavior," he wrote. "You cannot eliminate politicians because you don't like them or have #TrumpDerangementSyndrome Ironically the very same implying that their own mentors hurt an election"
When a fan responded, "My democratic dollars buy your records, tour shirts, and tickets to your shows," Soussan wrote: "I do a lot of business with traditional democrats and understood that in a democracy one can have a difference of opinion?" The fan countered, "Absolutely. But it does wear thin when artists one admires beat the 'anti' drum so loudly and regularly. I guess that's why so many people hate Bono." To that, Soussan replied: "I get it. I am a fiscal conservative and believe that business builds everything, not governments. Growing up in Iron Curtain Europe I know first hand where extreme socialism leads and cannot support it. I do respect traditional democrats however, although they are a dying breed"
The same day, Soussan implored his Twitter followers who "object to this diehard impeachment narrative" to sign a petition against the Democrat-led efforts.
According to a new Fox News Poll, nearly half of voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office. The president quickly dismissed the results, saying that he has "the real polls" and that all others are "fake" and "lousy." He told reporters on Sunday: "You're looking at the wrong polls. I have the real polls. The CNN polls are fake. The Fox polls have always been lousy. I tell them they ought to get themselves a new pollster." Trump went on to say that "real polls" actually show that the public is not in favor of impeachment. The impeachment investigation, according to him, is a "hoax" and a "phony scam."
Back in March, Soussan angered some people on Twitter when he slammed the environmental Green New Deal — the landmark proposal by Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez which seeks to address climate change and income inequality — saying that "global temperature fluctuations are caused primarily by solar activity." A few days earlier, the 58-year-old British-born bassist lambasted Wolf Blitzer of CNN after attorney general William Barr released a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller's report that noted the "investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election."
LAST IN LINE's sophomore album, "II", was released in February via Frontiers Music Srl.
