Johnny Rotten: ‘Wokeness’ Pushed by ‘Children Coming Out of Colleges With Sh*t for Brains’
Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten says “wokeness” is a divisive political weapon being wielded by privileged, “tempestuous, spoilt children,” whom the media offer a platform to push their unpopular politically correct opinions.
“Wokeness,” Johnny Rotten said, is being used as “a device used by the privileged to keep the working class in their place,”
“These people aren’t really genuinely disenfranchised at all. They just view themselves as special. It’s selfishness and in that respect it’s divisive and can only lead to trouble,” the 65-year-old punk rock star said.
“I can’t believe that TV stations give some of these lunatics the space. Where is this ‘moral majority’ nonsense coming from when they’re basically the ones doing all the wrong for being so bloody judgmental and vicious against anybody that doesn’t go with the current popular opinion?” Rotten asked.
Lydon placed the proliferation of political correctness at the feet of “tempestuous spoilt children coming out of colleges and universities with shit for brains. And I put that in the most polite way.”
