Gene Simmons liar, Hypocrite, Greedy Bastard: "I Want my Obama Vote Back" Vs. His Internet Downloader Outrage.

Here he discourses at great length on the flaws of the administration he voted for then changed his mind about. Fair enough.

Meanwhile he's deeply concerned about internet downloaders. I mean really, REALLY concerned. He feels they should be punished by everything including prison. Perhaps he's worried he won't be able to make the next payment on the private jet. (Net worth of Gene Simmons: $300 million).

"Gene Simmons Wants to Sue All MP3 Downloaders
3:40 AM - October 9, 2010 - By Jane McEntegart - Source : Tom's Guide US
Some musicians are very open to people sharing music with their friends. As long as someone is listening, they don't mind. However, not all musicians are as easy going as all that and rock god Gene Simmons counts himself among the latter.

Gene Simmons has made headlines after airing his very strong opinions on P2P and music piracy. Earlier this week, Gene was speaking at the MIPCOM convention in Cannes, France, and he advised people to protect their brand and be ready to lawyer up at a moment's notice.

"Make sure your brand is protected," Ars Technica cites Simmons as saying. "Make sure there are no incursions. Be litigious. Sue everybody. Take their homes, their cars. Don't let anybody cross that line."

"Simmons goes on to blame the music industry for not being tougher on offenders from the very beginning.

"The music industry was asleep at the wheel and didn't have the balls to sue every fresh-faced, freckle-faced college kid who downloaded material," he said, "And so now we're left with hundreds of thousands of people without jobs. There's no industry."

Simmons goes on to liken the music industry's reaction to piracy to a farmer letting a fox steal an chicken egg because he's cute.

"But that little fox went back with a free egg," Simmons is quoted as saying, "and told all the other little foxes about it, and then the foxes overran the farm, killed all the chickens, took all the eggs, and didn't pay for it."

Things don't go well for the farmer after that. After losing all of his eggs, his wife divorces him and his kids run away.

"Now the farmer lost his farm. His wife divorced him and went with another farmer who was smarter. The kids ran off because the spineless farmer didn't have enough sense to kill the fox. The trucks that delivered the chickens—they're all out of business. The stores that sold them—they're out of business."

Simmons finishes the story with a warning: "So don't let any cute little foxes get near your hen house!"

Luckily, piracy hasn't put Simmons out of work. Earlier this week KISS launched their own line of HDTVs and Gene mentioned highlighted them when speaking about how to build a successful entertainment brand.

"Everything from KISS condoms to KISS caskets. We'll get you coming and we'll get you going. We literally have everything from KISS Hi-Def television sets that are about to come on the market to KISS Motorcycles," he said, before adding, "Well, it's Planet KISS. Oh, I've already trademarked that, I forgot that."

  • SCREW YOU GENE! There were plenty of us putting up tons of red flags about BHO's resume... YOU DIDNT WANT TO LISTEN b/c ppl like you were all swept up in the marketing of BHO. You were quick to jump on the "dont be a hater, racist, bigot" bandwagon to anyone who showed dissent towards BHO. After seeing this I dont think I can watch his show again!

    And I second the "KISS MY ASS" statement... jerk!

  • jawohl....and the hitler promised autobahns and public swimming pools in all the villages, so of course we supported his ascention...it was historic.
    best thing is to never get caught up in any histeria no matter how cool black is, or how cool highways are. the consequences of flighty, trendy, imbicilic are brutal and long-lasting.

  • After screwing 1000 girls after concerts over the decades, some probably under age, he is suddenly all high and mighty? He is Jewish and Obama isn't being Israel's bitch.
