As hard as you try, the election is a topic that cannot be ignored this year. With email scandals, “PussyGate,” and other issues popping up almost every day, this year’s election is hard to dismiss.
With news of Tom Delonge sending the Clinton Campaign emails about UFOs, we may have reached peak insanity.
For those of you born after 1995, Tom Delonge used to sing for Blink-182, one of the seminal pop-punk bands in music’s history. Their songs weren’t about aliens: they were about growing up, dating, heartbreak, etc. However, it is now obvious that Tom Delonge has had aliens on his mind for a long time.
Tom Delonge is convinced UFOs are a threat to the United States. He’s pretty much Randy Quaid’s character from Independence Day but with better hair. Speaking to Mic, Delonge said:
“Dealing with something that’s a national security issue, and you’re being gifted with the opportunity to communicate something you’ve been passionate about your whole life — something that has the opportunity to change the world over time — being a small part of that is enormously important for my life path.”
Two important things:
1.) Forget global warming or the potential loss of social security. We should be worried about aliens.
2.) While he was singing songs about the pain of being dumped and growing up, Tom Delonge was also trying to convince Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker that the X-Files was a documentary. True Blink fans will remember “Aliens Exist” from Enema of the State, but that was just one clue hinting to Tom’s fascination with creatures from another world.
Given the absurd nature of this election, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if Ken Bone asked the candidates in the next debate whether they had an interplanetary defense plan. It’ll be interesting to see how this back-and-forth develops over the next few months (if it does at all).
As for Tom? After leaving Blink-182, he released a book entitled Sekret Machines that includes accounts of UFO abductions. It is clear that this is a topic that is near and dear to his heart, and we can only thank him for adding a new level of insanity to an already insane election. .
