Dee Snider Says MAGA Guys Inspired ‘Angry’ Pop Song Lyrics


If you’re going to take it, know that the guy who wrote it might hate you.

Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider said politicians using his music in their campaigns, like Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, might want to know of his contempt for them and inspired songs like “We ‘re Not Gonna Take It”.

The 67-year-old native of Astoria, Queens, who grew up on Long Island, declared his position on Twitter on Friday.

“WARNING QANON, MAGAT FASCISTS: Every time you sing “We’re Not Gonna Take It” remember it was written by a transvestite, libtard, tree-hugging half-Jew who HATES everything you stand for .” he tweeted. “It’s you and people like you who inspired every angry word in this song! SO F–k OFF!”

The 1984 anthem remains in play almost 40 years later. Snider expressed outrage earlier this month when Lake’s “silly” campaign staff, a far-right 2020 election denier, played “We’re not going to take it” at his campaign rallies en route to the GOP nomination in Arizona. governor’s race.

“Write your own fucking song!” he tweeted.

With the nationwide primaries ending and the midterm elections just months away, it’s unclear if or where Snider heard his music being used once again. But his statement rocked Twitter.

“Now tell them about the Village People,” one Twitter user joked.

This 1970s pop group’s hits like “Macho Man” and “YMCA” are regularly on rotation at Donald Trump rallies. The Village People has had gay musicians in its lineup and also attracts a wide fan base.

Another Twitter user identifying himself as a MAGA supporter told Snider he twisted it.

“If you think the MAGA movement is racist like this, you have been completely fooled by left (sp.) propaganda,” Old School Saul wrote.

He identifies himself as “Anti Islam” in his Twitter bio.

A social media user who tweets as New England Firearm Enthusiasts unearthed a 2015 interview with Snider where the rocker told TMZ that Trump was ‘a good friend’ who he hoped would overthrow ‘the political system’ .

Snider did not deny making this statement, but said he changed his mind when “Trump opened his big mouth and started spitting poison all over this great country.”

According to Snider, he asked Trump to stop playing his music at rallies and the former president, also born in Queens, agreed.

Trump hosted Snider on “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2012, but “fired” him when a team led by the outspoken leader failed.

“To keep things in perspective, it’s not a real job,” snider said after being canned. “I actually got fired from a bogus job and then went back to what I’m really doing.”

Snider gave the politicians his blessing to perform “We’re Not Gonna Take It”. In 2015, he said Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, a two-time presidential candidate, had his backing. Earlier this month, he told Arizona gubernatorial candidate Marco Lopez that “We’re not going to take it” was his and added “Go get them Marco!!”

Lopez lost her Democratic primary race.
