Hey there, music fest luvvahs!

Just your second annual reminder that while Coachella is a super fun time, proceeds from your tickets will in all likelihood go to fund anti-LGBT and anti-abortion politicians in a very important mid-term year.

See, AEG owner Philip Anschutz is a massive donor to conservative Republicans, who regularly gives hundreds of thousands to GOP politicians.

Last year after the news went viral, Anschutz released a statement saying he had cut off any contributions to anti-LGBT causes.

Buuuuut Fader did the math again this year and found that in 2017 — which wasn't even an election or midterm year — he gave another $187,300 to politicians and super-PACs which are vocally against same sex marriage, anti-abortion, and pro-NRA.

Oh yeah, and of course Paul Ryan who wants to cut Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security to help pay for his billionaire tax cut.

Will YOU still be able to attend with a clear conscience??
