    Democratic Party rock singer Bruce Springsteen spoke out against President Donald Trump at a concert in Perth, Australia on Sunday, declaring, “We are the new American resistance.”

    The show was the opening night of Springsteen and his E Street Band’s ‘Summer 2017’ tour of Australia and New Zealand.

    Springsteen, who has become a Democratic Party shill, playing campaign concerts for every Democratic presidential campaign since 2004 (Kerry, Obama, Obama, Clinton), spoke out in support of the anti-Trump liberal women’s marches held in the U.S. and in countries around the world by liberals still shell-shocked over Trump’s presidential victory.

    The rally in Sydney, Australia was overshadowed by the skywriting of Trump’s name overhead.

    Springsteen posted a video clip of his statement to the front page of his official website with the bold type headline, “We are the new American resistance.”, and on Twitter.

    A transcript was also posted.

    “The E Street Band is glad to be here in Western Australia. But we’re a long way from home, and our hearts and spirits are with the hundreds of thousands of women and men that marched yesterday in every city in America and in Melbourne who rallied against hate and division and in support of tolerance, inclusion, reproductive rights, civil rights, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, the environment, wage equality, gender equality, healthcare, and immigrant rights. We stand with you. We are the new American resistance.”

    – Bruce Springsteen – January 22, 2017
    Perth, Australia”

    Backstreets reported last week that Springsteen played a two hour private acoustic concert at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama and about 200-250 staffers on January 12.

    The Dixie Chicks garnered notoriety for trashing President Bush at a London concert in 2003. While Springsteen is in no danger of facing a similar career nosediving backlash from his fans as the Chicks had a conservative country music fan base, he will still likely face criticism for his overseas attack on President Trump from some quarters.

    lol... i LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    when they say youve gone Full Dixie Chic.. well what do you say to that..

    I'd say shut up and sing, but doesn't he mostly just scream?

    Who takes their home country's politics to another country, and bashes their own president in front of those people?

    Hopefully he "Dixie Chicked" himself.

    Just my opinion, but Bruce Springsteen sucks both politically and musically.
    This is not a new development either. I always thought he sucked!

    A lot of his union household fans voted for Trump this time, probably galls him. Always liked the Boss but ignored his rants.

    Wasn't Chris Christie one of his biggest fans?

    What's he up to nowadays?

    For over 40 years, the man has made hundreds of millions of dollars writing and playing songs about how much America sucks.

    For a man who has spent the last 40 years singing about boarded up stores on Main Streets, and shuttered factories & mills across this country, I wonder if he even listened to President Trump's inauguration speech?? There were parts of his speech at actually sounded like they could have referenced a Springsteen song...

    I've never understood a word or song Springsteen has ever uttered. Sounds like a mouthful of cotton balls... So I've never ever been a fan of cotton mouths, screamers and mumblers.... Leaves out a lot of entertainers!!

    He's a Liberal. i.e. the irony and hypocrisy of his own words are lost on him.

    And yeah, his music sucks.

    90~% of trade union members voted for Trump. The SEIU likely went the other way.

    Sorry buddy, the left has been The Man and The Oppressor for decades. The "real American resistance" spoke on November 8th.

    His opinions doesn't matter here, so he had to find popularity in a country that still bows to the queen and takes pride in its subservience to government control. No surprise.

    The Boss always fancied himself a modern day Woody Guthrie. Gotta protest something.

    The last gasps of a dying resistance. We own the White House, the Senate, the House, a majority of Governorships, and a majority of individual State Houses. We should have such resistance continuously lol!!!
