i don't think that's necessarily true.

many, many U2 fans are devoutly religious, which often translates into being socially/personally conservative, as well as an understandable impulse to speak up for/defend the Religious Right.

i do think that the majority of U2 fans are straight, white, Christian, and reasonably well off, and that hardly translates to true Leftist ideology and thought which is pretty absent on this board.
Why do people keep saying this, and where do you all get it from? Unless a survey has been done on what constitutes a U2 fan then this is pointless whaffle. It would be akin to me saying that only Americans give a rat's arse about a band's political or religious belief and the rest of the world are just here for the music, which of course would be heartily disagreed with and somehow deemed offensive.

I tend to hang out at the left side of the spectrum, and have extreme difficulty seeing anyone who is not at my side as someone other than a radical Right-winger.

I have been told that Bush and Harper are fairly central/central right, but in my eyes they are extremem right.

I am working on this.

As well, I am working poor, and a lesbian.

You got one part right - I am white.

I would say that if you threw the current FYM posters into a blender and molded the result into one person, that person would be a somewhat left leaning centrist.

You're right Popmart86, U2 are DOWN with Bush and the conservative movement! I don't know why, it's really confusing, but at the same time it all makes perfect sense! All I know is that it warms my heart to know that I can play HTDAAB backwards anytime if I want to learn of the next election campaign strategy!

Thank you, you've been a terrible audience!
