How dare these people associate David Bowie with Communism.

"The dramatics of ‘Heroes’, in which two lovers kiss by the Wall as East German police fire bullets above their heads, are gone.  Bowie sang that song in Berlin for the victims of communism in 1987 – 'We send our best wishes to all our friends who are on the other side of the Wall,'"
