For anyone who’s seen even a glimpse of the news over the past week, you probably saw the alt-right, Nazi cunts inciting violence in Charlottesville, NC. (You may also have noticed the lack of response from our fuckhead president, Donny Trumpets.)
In response to the violence, and to stand in solidarity with the protestors and those who oppose the alt-right, Anti-Flag released a new song on Monday titled “Racists”. Listen to their new song below.
In addition to their new song, the band released the following statement:
“We stand in solidarity with those fighting racism and fascism in the streets of Charlottesville and beyond. We believe it is time for the removal of all monuments to the confederacy and the racism for which they stand. We must put these symbols of white supremacy into places where the proper context can be provided for what they actually are; outdated, backwards, and antithetical to what we believe the values of humanity should be. It is past time to have real conversations on systemic racism and America’s history of it. There are museums memorializing the Holocaust all across Europe, while America continues to try to hide from its racist and murderous past and present.”
The song serves as a friendly, comforting reminder that despite all of the turmoil and hatred throughout the world, music will forever serve as a medium to oppose, disrupt, and eliminate all the impurities of the world. Kudos to Anti-Flag for writing this song and taking a strong, non-violent stance against all the racist assholes in our world.
