    Punk Band Frontman Unloads On MAGA ‘Grifters And Billionaires’ In Blistering Viral Rant At Concert

    Ken Casey, the lead singer and bassist of punk band Dropkick Murphys, delivered a blistering takedown of MAGA “grifters and billionaires” during a concert performance in Pennsylvania. Casey said that these people “are being duped by the greatest swindler in the history of the world,” referring to former Republican President Donald Trump.

    Trump’s “Big Lie” that he was the rightful winner of the 2020 general election galvanized the MAGA movement, eventually culminating in the January 6 insurrection, which took place when a mob of Trump’s supporters attacked the United States Capitol on the false premise the election had been stolen.

    Murphy also took aim at the wealthy Republican elites who have backed Trump’s lies for their own personal gain and continued to con people—largely via conservative media networks like Fox News and Newsmax—with reckless abandon.

    You can hear what Casey said in the video below.

    Casey said:

    “If you were a part of a union or working class people who were allowed to build a better life in the middle class of America, you f**king listen to us, ‘cause if you’re out there buying those f**king hats that these swindlers are selling at that f**king fair… then you’re a part of the problem.”

    “And I’ll tell you why — ‘cause you’re being duped by the greatest swindler in the history of the world.”

    “You’re being duped by a bunch of grifters and billionaires who don’t give a sh*t about you or your family. They care about their f**king tax breaks and the money they can put in their pockets.”

    “If you consider yourself a patriot, and you’re spouting off that election denying sh*t, I will fight your a*s outside if you want to. Wake the f**k up!”

    Many appreciated Casey’s remarks and offered their own criticisms of the MAGA movement.

    Casey has long supported Democrats though he did make headlines in 2014 after he announced he would co-host a fundraiser for Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker, who ultimately won that year’s election. At the time, Casey said that he “will take a big heart and strong character over political party any day.”

    In 2016, Casey and Dropkick Murphys—a Celtic punk group that first formed in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1996—received the Robert F. Kennedy Children’s Action Corps’ Embracing the Legacy Award for years of charity work with various organizations including work with children and military veterans.

    Casey and Dropkick Murphys sent a cease-and-desist letter to a Neo-Nazi group earlier this year after the group used the band’s song “The Boys Are Back” in a promotional video. Casey said he would personally fight them if they didn’t stop using the song, threatening to “SMASH” the group.
