Shortly after the Manchester bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, Katy Perry said that we all need to just “coexist without borders.” Perry has been on a downward slope of popularity lately, and this may just be the last shove over the cliff.
In an interview Tuesday on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer suggested that people “unite” following the tragedy, which occurred as young fans and their parents were leaving the 21,000-seat arena at around 10:35 p.m. local time.
Dozens of people were injured and killed when the suicide bomber detonated himself, and many of the victims were young girls. While our president and other leaders are looking at different methods of surveillance and protection from these animals, Perry obviously cannot wrap her mind around the concept that we must keep these monsters out.
THERE IS NO COEXISTING WITH ISIS!! They have made it very clear that it is them or us….I don’t know about you, but I choose us!
Here was her message:
“Besides like all the weird stuff that goes around the Internet, which is, you know, sometimes a great place but an absolute, you know, underbelly mob-pit of horribleness, I think, like, the greatest thing we can do now is just unite as people, as like, fan bases, all of it, you know?” Perry babbled, “I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other and like, no barriers, no borders, like we all need to just co-exist.”
Okay, so somewhere between all the “likes” and “you knows” I think Perry was honestly trying to put out a message of unity. I can respect that. However, there is a massive difference in being foolish and understanding. Calling for there to be no borders of any kind so that we can “coexist” is purely foolish.
Without borders and barriers, we are sitting ducks. Meaning that the same thing that happened in Manchester would have breeding grounds to happen anywhere.
Perry’s preference for no “borders” or “barriers” may come from her staunch opposition to President Donald Trump, who promised during the 2016 campaign to build a security wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. The singer was a vocal supporter of former Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton, and previously marched in the anti-Trump Women’s March on Washington shortly after Trump’s inauguration.
She also vocally announced herself as part of the “anti-Trump” movement.
