Bernie Sanders Takes Down Trump and Takes Back Neil Young’s Song From The Billionaire Thief

Bernie Sanders took down Donald Trump and took back Rockin’ In The Free World by using the song with Neil Young’s permission at his rally in Denver.

In a statement about the Denver rally, the Sanders campaign not so subtlety noted, “This is an extraordinary turnout,” Sanders said as he surveyed the crowd after climbing onto the Hamilton Gymnasium stage at the University of Denver. Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World” played (with the singer/songwriter manager’s approval) as Sanders was introduced to the standing-room-only crowd that spilled into an atrium and a nearby lacrosse field outside.”

Donald Trump stole Neil Young’s Rockin’ In The Free World by using at his presidential campaign announcement without the artist’s permission. Young responded by making it abundantly clear that Trump did not have permission to use his song, and that he supports Bernie Sanders. Trump responded by claiming that he had paid for permission to use the song, and basically called Neil Young a liar, but he also said that he would not be using the song again.

Bernie Sanders not only took down Trump by using the song. He also took the song back from the billionaire who tried to steal it. Rockin’ In The Free World is a criticism of Republican policies, and the lyrics fit much better with Bernie Sanders than they ever would with any Republican.

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are complete opposites. Bernie Sanders is running a campaign that is about giving voice and power back to the people. Trump is running because he is, “really, really rich.” Bernie Sanders is generating overflow crowds for each of his rallies. Donald Trump had to pay actors to come to his rally and cheer for him. Bernie Sanders is a serious public servant who has spent decades fighting for ordinary Americans. Donald Trump is a reality TV buffoon who is most famous for saying “You’re fired.”

Sen. Sanders is fighting to lead a revolution against the billionaire takeover of the electoral system and government, and the Donald Trumps of the world are exactly what Sanders is running against. The theft of Neil Young’s song was symptomatic of the idea that the wealthiest Americans can take whatever they want, but Bernie Sanders is leading the popular charge to take the country back.

  1. Go Bernie………The Pope and Senator Sanders are not making friends with the rich and “powerful”…please protect them both!

  2. People like our Republican oligarchy need no approval to appropriate what ever they desire.

    It is the right of the wealthy to control the rabble.

  3. Trump claims that he had permission to use the song. Sorry, Donald, but that isn’t that they are saying when you download it off of iTunes.

  4. Bernie Sanders, thank you for being a man who always strives for integrity and truth. You are a fighter of the good fight. I am so grateful for you.

  5. can America take their collective heads out of their asses and P-L-E-A-S-E elect this man?

    Thank-you

  6. It’s no wonder our justice system is so lenient on the rich: A poor person would be sued and fined for theft of said intellectual property (and probably jailed), but the billionaire class…?

    Well, no one’s sued Donald Trump yet on that account.

  7. Of course the GOP would not think to ask first, they feel “entitled”..to everything..especially that which is yours and mine.

  8. We’re trying! We need more plumbers to unplug these type A-holes; but we outsourced them all

    LOL

  10. Trump’s “campaign” reads like a 7th grade class president – no ideas, just childishly insults his opponents. Rump has no substance(something money cant buy). Hes nothing but orange water under the bridge. Hes a nothing.

  11. Bernie the Giant killer and Francis the Dragon Slayer will be leading the throngs into the battle for survival. Francis and Bernie are bonded by many things for mankind, I see this and do not need confirmation from either to see that they are for these times. I think we will see many more leaders step forward globally leading in these same efforts for mankind. I see them on an almost daily basis here and other sites and places where we are trying to lead from where we are.

    It will take legions and leaders as both are leading millions if not billions on a global scale.

  12. Factual accuracy cannot be expected of the GOP– after all, the facts have a noted liberal bias. Even so, the press is prone to use stricter standards of accuracy with Pres. Obama, for example, than with Rick Perry and Donald Trump. Perhaps media editors presume any review of Perry or Trump is wasted effort and comic relief.

    As standard operating procedure, the GOP approach to public statement is to make the most convenient, self-serving comment likely to “fly” in the media, and only later, do damage control, with appropriate retractions and apologies.

    GOP rule of thumb for campaign statements– better to apologize than to wait for permission. Case-in-point– the presidential debates of 2012, in which Romney was clocked at one factual misstatement (prevarication) approximately every 90 seconds.

  13. Maybe Bernie should ask Mr Corker where he and his fellow conspiritors, were in 2009 when President Obama was celebrating his innaugaration.
