Steven Van Zandt has been keeping a low profile on X. But the rocker has been known to tweet about where he stands many times before, especially when it comes to Ukraine and Russia. In his latest tweet, Steven suggested that Ukraine should be provided with an ‘Army Tactical Missile System.’ He wrote:
“Ukraine needs ATACMS now! Actually a year ago. Until Russian cities start looking like Bahmut, this war will never end. Certainly not end well.”
In contrast to his stance, the rocker also made a point to explain his social media silence and share that he doesn’t get involved in politics anymore by saying:
“This Twitter feed was officially hacked by truthier Dr. Hugo Z. Hackenbush! SVZ no longer tweets about politics, so save your bullshit opinions!”
Just months after the war between Russia and Ukraine started, Van Zandt tweeted that he was frustrated by the lack of effort the U.S. was showing to help the people of Ukraine. He tweeted:
“I swear I’m getting PTSD from this. This is deeply depressing down to my soul. I have been criticizing our country from a patriotic point of view my whole adult life for the mistakes we have made. But this is by far the worst. I will never again feel the same way about my country.”
The Ukraine and Russian war wasn’t the only time Steven showed his side as the musician also tweeted during U.S. elections where he advised voters to be careful. He said:
“We are losing America! While the Democratic Party remains in its coma, pathetically begging for bipartisanship, the Republic Taliban Party is winning every fight to turn us into a theocratic fascist society. 80% of SCOTUS decisions favor religion versus the government!”
