Rocker: Mothers should be able to kill, eat newborn 'fetis'

LOS ANGELES, June 5, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The lead singer of the band Blues Traveler has an unappetizing proposal for abortion: He believes mothers should be able to kill and eat their own children until they can "physically escape" from her.

John Popper, who penned the band's Grammy-winning song “Run Around,” did not beat around the bush in a series of 22 Twitter messages to Cleveland Plain Dealer Washington Bureau Chief Steve Koff on May 31. John Popper John Popper

Koff had just tweeted about how Popper was going to address gun rights before the National Press Club in D.C. this week.

In response, the northeast Ohio native discussed his long enthusiasm for firearms, then somehow tied abortion to Southerners who allegedly threatened to shoot members of the Ku Klux Klan when they tried to hold cross burnings.

In the exchanges, Popper felt as easy breaking free from grammatical and spelling conventions as he does melodic structures. He wrote of “the need for a woman to decide if her fetis lives or dies. I personally believe as in nature that the mother gets to cook&eat her baby untill it can physicaly escape from her...but good luck making that into a lobby.”

His position, he tweeted, is based on “the individual having the right to make hard decisions.”

“Yes I'm pro choice, pro pot, pro gay marriage & ANTI [capital] gains tax,” he tweeted later. “I err on liberty's side..always have.”

Popper, who was raised by a Jewish father and a Catholic mother, refers to himself as a “recovering Catholic.” He wrote a song, “Trina Magna,” as an attempt to “secularize” the Holy Trinity.

In 2012 he told the Voice of Russia: "I want everything to be legal. I want machine guns and abortions, and gay marriage, and no capital gains tax... and there's no place for me to be. I'm a man without a party, kind of."

He said he suffered a heart attack in 1999 while masturbating to pornography.

When a reader expressed his displeasure at the singer's enthusiasm for infanticide and cannibalism, Popper replied, “Remember we're all god's babies...so we can all be murdered... wink That's what the plaugue was all about.”

Popper thinks he’s cool because he plays the harmonica. What a douche-bag.

He believes mothers should be able to kill and eat their own children until they can "physically escape" from her.

Once they have "physically escaped" from her, can they then kill and eat her?

He sure isn’t the one to make jokes about baby cannibalism without them rebounding on him hard, for sure.

I'll stick with Heavy Metal thanks, it tends to produce more conservatives.

(Dave)Mustaine was raised as a Jehovah's Witness and is now a born again Christian. In 1988, in response to the British government's criticism of homosexuality, Mustaine said: "More power to them. It says in the Bible that men should not lay with men like they lay with women. I mean I don't wanna f##k up and not go to heaven." In an answer to a question about Judas Priest having an overt homosexual image, "I don't wanna talk about this. The last thing I need is a bunch of homos picketing us." In 2012, on KIRO-FM he was asked if he supports gay marriage and replied: "Well, since I'm not gay, the answer to that would be no." He was then asked if he would support legislation to make gay marriage legal and said, "I'm Christian. The answer to that would be no."

Mustaine began to focus on his Christian faith more directly while attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Finding that the meetings were actually impeding his progress in sobriety and spirituality, Mustaine left to focus on Christianity on his own. Through this process he became a committed Christian. It has become his policy not to appear with any band that is seen as black metal or satanic, such as declining to appear in a music festival in Greece with the band Rotting Christ as well as in Israel with the band Dissection. In these instances, Mustaine claims he requested that the bands not be kicked off the bill, but that Megadeth would step down and perform some other night. However, the promoters actually removed the smaller bands from the billing rather than deal with rescheduling the headliner.

I didn’t even know he was still alive. I figured a coronary would have taken him out by now.

Wouldn’t it have been ironic if his mother had aborted him. Then he wouldn’t be in the gene pool and taking up space. Apparently A LOT of space from the pictures.

“he plays the harmonica.”

I’m a Country Blues guy. I like harmonicas. But can’t stand to listen to this guy. He’s a great player, but has no clue as to when too much is way too much! Constant high speed noodling.

Well that says a lot for his character.

In all fairness, John Popper is a wild and crazy guy. That is, he has a frat boy sense of humor, so take all this with a grain of salt. In many ways he is much like Ted Nugent.
