Robby's Words on Michael Moore & the
Excerpt from glam-metal.com
| By Thomas S. Orwat, Jr. | Nov 9, 2004
You were recently campaigning for John Kerry.
What was that experience like?
Yeah, we were out with the film maker Michael
Moore. It was really cool, he’s a great guy. He’s
an incredibly heart felt, socially motivated human being.
I think he should get some sort of recognition for his revealing
of this whole situation. I love him and would completely defend
him. It was great to just sit down with him and talk about
his family as opposed to the Bush conspiracy dude which everyone
knows him as. But I think Fahrenheit 911 was really eye opening
for me. It’s going to help get me through the next four
years because I know there are people out there that think
like me. Dude, everyday for a week I was in a room with anywhere
from 5000 - 15,000 people of all ages screaming and hugging
because they were so happy that we might defeat this horribleness.
After the election was lost, I was thinking, hey, all those
people are still out there. These are people who love this
country with all of their heart and want to see change. Some
may view these people who take a stance with people like Michael
Moore as being unpatriotic sometimes. You know me, we’ve
talked enough times where you know that I’m not unpatriotic.
I just hate to watch our country sail down the river or sail
up the river, or which ever way you don’t want to go
on the river. (laughs)
A lot of people are with you. This was a real close race.
Bush certainly won’t go down in history as the President
that always won by a landslide.
Yeah, when I hear him talk about the will of the people I
just want to say “Dude, shut up. You won by a point.”
It’s not the will of the people, it’s more like
the will of you to scare the vote out. And now his administration
is quitting on him. Ashcroft and Evans both already quit.
It’s weird how the middle of the country votes for Bush
and the states that make all the money voted for Kerry. But
we could go on and on about this.
You guys have played Military bases before, would you
consider playing in Iraq or do you think it’s too dangerous
at this point?
Of course I would go. Matter of fact, the band Klear from
my record label is going to be playing military bases in Alaska
and they may go overseas and play some shows there. You know
it just freaks me out what’s going on over there, it
really does. It seems so false.
