    I believe this song was correlated with the jew george bush if you remember at the time that is what I felt.
    George bush was really just reading these lyrics?

                  Oh man just shut up about Trump, Hillary would not have been any better. In fact she would have most likely been far worse in terms of the theme of this song being corruption, and media manipulation. Who did the media support again? Oh yeah that's right. The ignorance, damn.

                    Why does this sound like the Johnny Test intro song?

                            American Idiot follows the story of Jesus of Suburbia, a lower-middle-class American adolescent anti-hero. Through its plot, the album expresses the disillusionment and dissent of a generation that came of age in a period shaped by tumultuous events such as the Iraq War.

                              This song has kinda back fired on them given how their politics now fit the mainstream medias.

                                            As another comment I saw said, all of the comments are either Donald Trump related or have to do with Johnny Test’s theme song ripping this off completely
