Johnny Rotten strikes again!

Anarchy for the USA, it’s coming sometime…maybe.

Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten isn’t afraid to buck the establishment and sound the alarm over L.A.’s homeless epidemic, which has literally landed at his front door.

The 63-year-old lives in Venice Beach where there has been a surge of homeless vagrants that have vandalized his multi-million dollar home and spoiled the beaches with “poo” and “needles.”

“A couple of weeks ago I had a problem,” he said. “They came over the gate and put their tent inside, right in front of the front door. It’s like…the audacity. And if you complain, what are you? Oh, one of the establishment elite? No, I’m a bloke that’s worked hard for his money and I expect to be able to use my own front door.”

He added that his wife Nora, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, isn’t able to cope with bums trying to “steal the iron bars off the windows” for the scrap metal and bricks coming through his windows.

“My wife’s ill and she can’t cope with this. But at 2 a.m. last week, a brick whizzed through the top floor window, the bedroom. Sorry, Mr. Policeman. I need your help.”

They have also spoiled beach life: “And the heroin spikes…You can’t take anyone to the beach because there’s jabs just waiting for young kids to put their feet in — and poo all over the sand.”

If you think John’s attitude ain’t Punk As Fuck, allow Nolte to explain:

This might sound like hypocrisy coming from a punk rocker, but it’s really not. The whole ethos of ’70s and ’80s punk rock is live and let live. No rules…at least until you interfere with me living the life I want to live, which is exactly what is happening to Rotten.

In fact, Rotten (whose real name is John Lydon) is bucking an establishment that treats these vagrants as sacred cows while at the same time pretending they do not exist because their rising numbers reflect badly on the Democrat-run strongholds that cannot manage the growing problem.

The media and the left-wing political establishment want us to see the homeless as victims of a cruel American capitalism that allows good people to fall through society’s cracks. Naturally, the only solution to this problem is big government socialism.

Johnny Rotten complaining about one of the most sacred of sacred cows is as punk as it gets, and so is his support of Trump and Brexit.

Punk was always about undermining the status quo and just going against the grain generally, so I’d say Nolte has the right of things here. As for the heroin spikes, I’d guess his experience with Sid Vicious’ ignoble end could have left him with a particularly bad taste in his mouth where that’s concerned. Either way, keep rockin’, Johnny.

  1. I’m in California right now (for work, no desire to live in this shithole), and the city of Whittier is in the news right now. Seems they broke up a bum (I refuse to call them “homeless”) tent camp a few weeks ago. The concern, of course, is that the bums will simply come back and re-camp. So, how is the city preparing for that eventuality? Fences? Armed guards? Promises of arrest? Nope. They are busily working on placing more trash receptacles in the area (because if there’s anything bums are known for, it’s proper disposal of litter) and looking into “other sanitation amenities.” Read – porta-dumps. This is how surrender happens. You make a gesture of preventing the antisocial behavior of the offenders, but if they re-offend, you define deviancy down and allow that which you previously “attempted” to prevent.

    Of course, there’s some law out here that says you can’t move bums along unless you “have a place for them to go.” I got into a rather heated debate with a friend simply for asking, “why?” There is no reason whatsoever for the taxpayers of Whittier, or any other city, to be responsible for making sure that bums “have a place to go.” I said to my friend, “Well, suppose that I decide to move to Venice Beach (to use Johnny Rotten’s example). I’ve never lived there, never paid a dime of tax to the area, and never put anything into their society. I represent no social capital there. And instead of getting a job and a house and building social capital, I decide that I’m going to erect a tent on the beach and beg for my money. So not only have I never put anything IN, I’m taking OUT. Why should the taxpayers of Venice – who pay their taxes to live in supposedly a first-world city – then become responsible for me to “have a place to go?” My friend did what all libs do. He pointed and sputtered. These asswipes have internalized the “help the homeless” doctrine so much that they can’t even entertain the idea that these bums are not our responsibility.

    And, as a current visitor to Cali, I can tell you this – however bad you THINK it is in LA, it’s WORSE. It’s shocking to drive down along the beaches in Venice, Santa Monica, and elsewhere. Only a few years ago my wife and I enjoyed a very pleasant three days of beach vacation here. Now? Forget about it. It’s as third world as Caracas.
