Dzhokhar Tsarnaev “poet” Amanda Palmer also loves Che Guevara and the Soviet KGB

Word’s getting out that some “performance artist,” or “musician” or “poet” named Amanda Palmer composed a poem in honor of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Many are outraged but in fact the “poem” comes across as pretty ambiguous, and the proceeds–for what they’re worth–are supposedly dedicated to a charity for the bombing victims.

On the OTHER hand, this same Palmer-person titled one of her poems after one of Che Guevara’s asinine aphorisms, “The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall.” She also flaunts a Soviet secret police cap during performances and boasts of buying Che Guevara socks.

Amanda, sweetie, if you start dedicating proceeds of your poetry to the victims of Communism they’ll be spread pretty thinly, believe me.

Btw, her performance with the Soviet police cap was in New York City! (to rave reviews, naturally) …Amanda, sweetie, you wanna prove your genuine “boldness” and “feistiness” and “edginess” and “iconoclasm?”…try a Nazi cap.

  1. Best tweet today about this blithering imbecile was from @BenHowe:

    “This is @amandapalmer. She writes poems for terrorists. We lose elections to people she votes for. Kill me. amandapalmer.net/blog/20130421/”

  2. Okay, now I’m really depressed. You’d think I’d be immune to all this stupidity. Time for another cafecito to calm me down.

  3. She’s not stupid, just a venal opportunist. Never let a crisis go to waste, aka crass self-promotion. But don’t blame her; blame anybody who makes it pay off for her.
