Moby is fighting mad and he's not going to take it anymore! The diminutive peacenik has changed his normally pacifistic demeanor and lashed out, echoing sentiments similar to those flying across the land in e-mail banter. He's attacked
Pearl Jam and other star supporters of
Ralph Nader, stating their support of Nader and abandonment of Al Gore has led
George W. Bush towards the
White House. "As I write this, no one knows who will be
the president-elect of the United States,"
said Moby. "If Bush wins, I will follow Ralph
Nader to the ends of the earth just to
scream at him and pelt him with rotten
tomatoes. If Nader had withdrawn from the
race, then Al Gore would be our
president-elect." One wonders whether this will lead to an upswing in the tomato futures market?
According to www.launch.com, an enraged
Moby added that all the stars who endorsed
Nader, including Patti Smith and Ben
Harper, should "hang their heads in shame". Or at least give him some tomatoes.
Moby keyed in on Bush's right-wing approaches to abortion and the environment. "If Bush is our next president, I hope
Nader and his supporters will be happy as
women start dying of back-alley abortions,
and I hope that Nader and his supporters
will jump for joy as our national parks
become oil fields, and as we return to the
'good old days' of Reagan-style national
debt, and as our public schools crumble,
and as the working poor watch any dreams
of prosperity just disappear as our inner
cities become the burnt out shit holes that
they were under Reagan and poppa Bush.
And I hope that the Green Party
celebrates as, under Bush, any notion of
corporate environmental responsibility flies
out the window."
Pearl Jam have yet to decide whether to call Moby out, break dancing style or to invest in those tomato futures...
