Last month, outside the Conservative Political Action Conference, white nationalist and “alt-right” leader Richard Spencer jokingly called Depeche Mode “the official band of the alt-right.
Dave Gahan: “What’s dangerous about someone like Richard Spencer is, first of all, he’s a cunt—and he’s a very educated cunt, and that’s the scariest kind of all. I think over the years there’s been a number of times when things of ours have been misinterpreted—either our imagery, or something where people are not quite reading between the lines. I mean, has he ever listened to ‘Strangelove’ or 'People Are People’?”
“I saw the video of him getting punched [during protests at the inauguration of President Trump]; he deserved it.”
I didn’t think I could possibly love Dave Gahan more than I already did but apparently I was wrong.
