Say it isn’t so!!!!
If it is true, it will probably freak out even more Republicans than Liberals….
The same man who wrote “Imagine;” who dreamed about a world without religion, just a “brotherhood of man;” the man who conducted naked sit-ins in bed to protest the Vietnam War; the long haired, pot smoking, peace loving hippie; the front man of the Beatles—yes that man, John Lennon, might have been a Reagan loving, closeted Republican. Sounds too crazy to be true? It just might be, but a new documentary based on interviews with Lennon’s personal assistant, Fred Seaman, claims that the iconic rock star’s political views had evolved by the end of the 1970’s and that by the time Ronald Reagan was running for office Lennon had morphed into a Republican. As told in the new documentary “Beatles Stories,” the assistant Seaman said, “John, basically, made it very clear that if he were an American he would vote for Reagan because he was really sour on Jimmy Carter.” Could one of the most famous and noteworthy progressive peace activists of all time, John Lennon, have been a secret GOPer?
