Billy Corgan appeared on InfoWars a few days ago during the Democratic National Convention, and while the conversation focused on spirituality, Corgan did comment on the 2016 Presidential election and candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
“Look at it from a very simple equation. You have a nationalist populist who is saying: ‘Everything is broken, and it needs to be fixed.’ Many many people feel that way, and that idea can only resonate if many many people feel that something needs to be broken before it can be fixed. Then on the other hand you have basically an open globalist saying: ‘Everything is fine, nothing to see here, let’s just march forward and we’re going to make it better.'”
He also discussed the Democratic National Convention, “Obviously the DNC is going on right now, and the RNC had their own version of this, so this is not a political statement as much as an observation from the standpoint of an entertainer. You’ve had the DNC on for three days, and for three days you haven’t had one mention from the stage, no mention of the WikiLeaks hacking, no mention of Hillary being investigated by the justice department and all of that. Obviously that was cleared, controversially. So what I’m trying to say and the reason I’m bringing this up, and I’m not trying to make a political point, is people are literally sitting in a conference room saying: ‘Well we can’t talk about that, and we definitely can’t talk about that.’ It’s a conscience manipulation.”
