Joey Tweets Again – Criticizes Britain And America!


Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton has today tweeted on the state of Anglo-American relations, but why he feels he needs to pontificate about these things,  we have no idea.

Joey Barton – decries state of Britain and United States

Joey seems to be upset about the state of the British, and he doesn’t think too much of the United States either.

Here’s what Joey tweeted today:

“This is a good country but we were once pioneers of the known world, a truly GREAT country, now we pedal the stuff the America’s tell us to,”

“‘Land of the free, home of the brave’ only George Bush and his idiotic subordinates believe that …”

“This is not about American people, there’s some good America friends of mine, truly great people,” “It’s their gov and also r gov following them.”

A little pull-back there at the end, just  in case some Americans got upset about Joey’s criticism of  their country.

But why Joey keeps tweeting these opinions, mostly negative, about different things we don’t know, and it’s not clear what he thinks he achieves from these tweets.

We think the US Congress has been acting like children these last few months on the debt ceiling negations,  and how they can curb the huge deficit.

But we’d never think of  putting those opinions out into the public domain.

Whoops!

    Andy – in a way you’re right, I just happen to agree with what he says, which makes it seem more acceptable.. then again, if he was spouting right wing, racist propaganda would that be ok? hardly.

    @ 41 – that’s the point I’m making. Doesn’t matter what, just that he is.

    DarloGeordie, you must have watched ‘Zeitgeist’ mate. It opened my eyes to the truth 😮

    Boater, I had to google ‘duplicitous’ to know what you were on about 😉

    JB is a legend, we should make him manager.

    Understand me right, but what the hell does Joeys oppinions about America have anything to do with football.

    I read Sammy Ameobis tweet where he says he’s downloading expansion for CoD Black Ops. We should hammer down on him for playing such violent games.

    You get my idea?

    As long as his tweets is not football related or puts NUFC in a bad light, then just leave it be… We all know Joey speaks before he thinks, there’s no need to shadow his every move.

    geordie german – no they’re not a race, they’re a nation, home to a cross section of races.

    Even if they were, he’s talking about political actions of the gov’t..
    I disapprove of the Zimbabwean government’s tyrannical regime- doesn’t make me racist towards Zimbabweans.

    Joey, your a good footballer but why express your political opinions on twitter? Everyone is entitled to an opinion but by putting yours on twitter you are making a prick of yourself! Stick to football related comments which you are qualified to comment on!

    I really dont see the issue with this. Its his opinion and no-one else’s. Just because he’s a footballer and NUFC’s best player by far (my own opinion) he gets the shit kicked out of him. People need to lighten up.

    Say what you want Joey, as long as it doesn’t involve Mexicans. Leave that to Clarkson.

    NUFCFAN76 – Reading your comments, either you expect everyone to adhere to some convention or, you come from the Robbie Savage school of thought, whereby, if you haven’t done it, you know nothing about it and your opinions are meaningless? In which case Ed may as well shut down this blog, no?

    I really can’t fathom your angle?

    Split personality! lol, nice going…

    To be fair, the debt ceiling issue hasnt been the easiest to resolve especially if they were to consider the people of america, which imo, should remain a top priority.

    @ 60 – What don’t you understand; I was pretty clear above. And I fail to find the significance of comparing me to Savage or implying free speech is for everybody by citing this blog as an example. It’s not: use your head.

    GG,

    You hate Yanks???? Do you hate the thousands of yanks who gave their lives defending the European countries from Nazi occupation during the last World War? Or do you hate them because they defeated your “party” during that war?

    Say what you will of the American government – it’s people have come to the help of the western europe more then once.

    @ 69 – think we should have more of a “look” at him. He did a backwards wing pass to himself in one of the last games he played for us; stunning. If Jose leaves, put Joans on the right and start Marv. With Lua Lua as backup, the kid will come on (learn/grow) fast.

    @ 70 – agreed on all points. But ALL Joey’s tweet are lightning rods. And those players you cited, have come under fire for such. So, a double edged sword, yes. But why open the club up to that?

    Tweeting about the birds, ocean, life in Toon, okay. But about politics? Transfers? Contracts? Owners? Uh, no.

    To be fair the Americans only came to our aid once during WW2 and that was only after the Japs kicked their arse. Up till then they weren’t to bothered about us.
