"Children, what's that sound?" Republican Club President's head explodes at concert

Friday evening (June 26) we attended a concert at Quail Creek featuring music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young. Great show, BTW. The guy seated behind us started telling us how SCOTUS was bought by Dems (really?) and recent Supreme Court opinions, like "SCOTUScare" would destroy America. When informed that he was talking to the wrong people, his articulate and carefully reasoned summary statement was "You're full of shit."

Who was this guy? The President of the Quail Creek Republican Club.

I take two things away from this. First, I can see how the SCOTUS rulings on ACA and same-sex marriage would cause Republican heads to explode. His did. Second, I do not understand why this guy attended the concert. After all, the third song in the concert was "For what it's worth" by Buffalo Springfield (written by Stephen Stills).

There's something happening here
But what it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

...

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step out of line, the men come and take you away

We better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

Maybe the guy just mistook Buffalo Springfield for a gun.
