Imagine John Lennon was a Republican …
Formal Beatles John Lennon … a closet Republican, wow, who knew? So says the last personal assistant prior to John Lennon’s sad and untimely death. Fred Seaman went on to say, “He was a very different person back in 1979 and 80 than he’d been when he wrote Imagine. By 1979 he looked back on that guy and was embarrassed by that guy’s naivete.”
John Lennon was a closet Republican, who felt a little embarrassed by his former radicalism, at the time of his death – according to the tragic Beatles star’s last personal assistant.
Fred Seaman worked alongside the music legend from 1979 to Lennon’s death at the end of 1980 and he reveals the star was a Ronald Reagan fan who enjoyed arguing with left-wing radicals who reminded him of his former self.
In new documentary Beatles Stories, Seaman tells filmmaker Seth Swirsky Lennon wasn’t the peace-loving militant fans thought he was while he was his assistant.
He says, “John, basically, made it very clear that if he were an American he would vote for Reagan because he was really sour on (Democrat) Jimmy Carter.
Imagine what libs must be thinking today? How is that possible, can’t be … all those baby-boomers just took a double dose of xanax today. As stated at Weasel Zippers, when walking be a liberals home, make sure you look up to dodge the jumpers.
Let’s not forget the lyrics to Revolution, But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao.It would appear as suggested by Big Hollywood that Lennon appears to have grown up over the years and realized the errors of his ways in his younger years.
You say you’ll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it’s the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow
