Willie Nelson has taken part in the considerably tight senatorial race between Republican incumbent Ted Cruz and Democrat Beto O’Rourke in the great state of Texas — and some of his fans are telling him what they think about it.

On Wednesday, the 85-year-old musician made an announcement that he agreed with the headline for an upcoming rally for the Democratic senatorial hopeful.

Fans have since been expressing their stances on the move on his Facebook page. According to Houston’s ABC 13, his decision to back Beto has been expectantly polarizing: “While some people told Willie he needs to stay out of politics, others threw insults at the music legend. Still, some others applauded Willie’s contribution to the 2018 campaign.”

A few examples of Facebook posts from very disappointed fans, who had a consistent message: “Goodbye, Willie”:

–Goodbye Willie, I don’t support socialist commies! You’re not going to advertise on my FB page either. Like we say in Texas, Now Git!

–I agree, really thought Willie had more sense than this. Of course Beto wants to legalize Marijuana! Lol

–Goodbye Willie…you are not on the right side.. take a look around you and do the right thing…I always thought you were a patriot…wow what a letdown. You would pick a socialist agenda and an Anti-American fellow like BETO, shame on you.

–That’s it, I’m done. What a disappointment.

–Willie you just lost over half of your fans by getting involved in politics!! Fan no more!! I cannot believe you support open borders and gun control!! You have smoked too much dope! I guess that is what you and Beta have in common!

–I knew you were a liberal in your personal beliefs. That was obvious, but to each their own. But you had to take it to the public. Just when I thought you were smarter than that…I find you are not…Such a shame to get on the showboat. You just lost some of your I am above it all.

Others were excited to hear the iconic singer was backing Beto:

–I have always known you you were a good, patriotic, inclusive man, Mr. Nelson and this just proves it further. I am now increasing my weekly donation to Congressman (and soon-to-be Senator) O’Rourke to $4.20, in your honor, sir. Don’t mess with Texas, don’t mess with Willie, and Viva Beto!

Others maintained that Willie was expected to lean to the left:

–I think it’s hilarious that this comes as a surprise to some of you spurned “fans.”

–On what planet does anyone think Willie would have conservative leanings? How delusional can people be?

However, there were some who suggested the adverse reaction was a bit much:

–Amazing how one is suddenly considered ” anti-American” because they have a different viewpoint. He has made tremendous contributions during his 80 some odd kindhearted, generous, talented years. Can’t believe the unkind comments…but you,too, have every right to your opinion… Just too bad we can’t be more respectful. He’s such a good soul. God bless us all.

The rally for Beto will be held on Sept. 29 at Austin’s Auditorium Shores. “Nelson is scheduled to perform alongside Joe Ely, Carrie Rodriguez, Tameca Jones and Nelson’s sons, Lukas and Micah Nelson,” ABC 13 reports.

  1. “My wife Annie and I have met and spoken with Beto and we share his concern for the direction things are headed,” Nelson said in the press release.” And it is that direction that it is most important. It’s Left vs Right. The Democrats are trying to move the country further Left. Many of them are openly calling for outright Socialism, which has been the Left’s goal since Wilson was President, and possibly even earlier than that. It’s hard to know because they kept their goal hidden earlier, because their goal is evil. No matter how they dress it up. No matter how they sell it. In it’s ultimate form. When it is in full control. Elites rule over masses of the poor, with the power of life and death, if they don’t obey them. The current state of affairs in Venezuela, are the best example of that. On top of their usual propaganda agenda, the Left is hammering away at demonizing Trump and the Republicans using every tool they have. The closer the election gets, the bigger the lies, because they know time is running out to dispute them But, judging by the reactions of Wiilie’s fans, the Right is not blind to what they are doing. We can still hope for victory in the mid-terms.

  2. Shocker ! Willie Nelson is a liberal who supports liberal causes , he has always rebeled against the status quo and his history proves it.That being said , he is entitled to his opinion as are his fans …the first hint of his liberalness…he has always been associated with Austin or as the many folks who have moved from their Austin on the Moscow due to its ever further left leaning city govt.who have embraced the Agenda 21 protocols and are forcing more and more businesses out of business with their heavy handed regulations and enviro nazi policies..

  3. Willie has always been liberal thats ok. I can no longer spent a dime on any of his productions. Hoping he sees the light of how terrible a move he has made. Do not think Beto has a chance even with Steyr Fonda and huge backing of Soros.

  4. always knew he did his own thing but loved his music now I’ll throw it all in garbage dump! what does he think will happen to all his “money” & “possessions if this country goes “socialist”? sometimes people should think before speaking. many of people he made all his money off didn’t & still don’t support “socialism”! open your eyes to truth please Willie before you stand before Almighty God on Judgment Day!
