TWISTED SISTER vocalist Dee Snider talks about the COVID-19 pandemic. He also says: “Coronavirus death toll has been exaggerated” around the world.
He is the one the most known singer worldwide. Dee Snider normally lives sometimes in Belize, a tiny Central American nation near beside the Caribbean Sea. He also recently went on to talks that he was impressed with how the pandemic was handled there correctly. Before that, earlier August he also blamed Donald Trump over his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. Also, mention Trump unsuccessful to bring the USA people together in a time of the pandemic.
During an interview with Kaaos, Dee Snider interview about the pandemic:
“I’ve got a couple of really good answers here, I think. My wife made this amazing observation, ’cause we travel so much. And she said, ‘You know, the United States is still a young country compared to the other countries in the world.’ We’re like teenagers. And teenagers are very rebellious: ‘You can’t tell me what to do.’ And that’s the American attitude. Countries like Finland – European countries – have been established for hundreds and hundreds of years.
We’re two hundred years old. You guys are a thousand years since the first man was there, and the culture. So you’re a more mature person, and it reflects in European cultures — you see it. Not so much in England, but you see it in Scandinavia, for sure.
The other thing is that there’s this lack of awareness of the rest of the world for most people in America. I was on social media saying it would benefit everybody to leave their country, travel, and see people and understand other cultures. The world would not seem so strange.”
Dee Snider also added:
“I talk to young people, and they say, ‘Oh, yeah. This is a political thing. When the election is over, it’ll be gone.’ And this was my niece,” he added. “I said, ‘But we were down in South America. They have [the pandemic there]. And we were in Europe. They have it. And our African safari was canceled because in Africa they have it.’ And she said, ‘Oh, they do?’ She didn’t know that the rest of the world has it. She thought this was in America only.
America is very selfish and very self-absorbed. And young people especially don’t watch the news. In Europe, you’re very connected. The borders are right there. People need to experience the world more and understand that they’re not the only ones on this planet.”
His last words about pandemic:
“A little country like that is intelligently recognizing that this is a problem. And they shut the country down. Very difficult to do, but they were very, very strict, and they kept COVID out. The U.S. is this big country – we’ve got all this money, all this power, and we can’t get our shit together. It’s ridiculous.”
