My friend Stephen Sigl and I decided that the once respectable Ministry is now dead to us after seeing the video for their (well, his) new song, “Antifa.”
I think, if you’ve read this blog before, you’re aware of what Antifa is, and you’d thus be against it. But, just as a reminder, Antifa is the far left group of so called “activists”, who claim that they’re fighting “fascism” by using coercive tactics, such as violently attacking people, starting riots, and just being an overall public nuisance, in the name of spreading “tolerance.”
Watch this travesty of a video, which so far has garnered 5,000 down votes (one of which is mine) and only 2,000 up votes, on youtube:
Ministry is of course the one-man industrial metal project from Al Jourgensen, who over the years has put out many fine albums, including Twitch, The Land of Rape and Honey, The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste, and Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs.
He’s also put out ones with FUNNY titles like Dark Side of the Spoon, Houses of the Molé, and Rio Grande Blood.
And Jourgensen HAS delved into politics before; in fact, just about every song on every album he made during the 00s was about George W. Bush and the Iraq war. But, where those were just criticisms, albeit repetitive ones, of an unpopular policy, Jourgensen, who now has hideous dreadlocks and a tackle box face, has gone full nut job, actually ENDORSING the Antifas in his latest music video, which was made to promote his new album, cleverly titled… ready for this… AmeriKKKant.
I wonder if my reaction to Jourgensen’s taking on a pro-Antifa stance is similar to how some people reacted when Skrewdriver became a white power band in 1983.
Nah, I’m guessing not. See, I’m not offended that he took this stance; after all, I bought the Brujeria t-shirt, that has Donald Trump with a machete through his head because, after all, it looks fucking cool! And, if I was Trump, I’d WEAR the shirt. No, my problem with Jourgensen taking on a pro-Antifa stance is that he cheapened his art by OFFICIALLY endorsing a side. You see, JUST criticizing an unpopular policy need not be a partisan act. After all, I AGREE with Jourgensen that the Iraq war was a big ol’ waste, leading to the needless death of Americans and Iraqis, while shooting our national debt sky high, and helping to create a whole new group of enemies for the world to have to deal with in the form of ISIS.
But, then, when Obama took over for Bush, he shot our national debt even higher, droned and bombed MORE countries in the Middle East, and even helped depose Muammar Gaddafi, effectively destabilizing Libya for reasons unknown. And where was Jourgensen then?
Then, Trump gets elected, and everyone who hates him calls him “literally Hitler”, even though he’s really just a fun ‘n’ boorish New York multi-billionaire with a loose mouth, but an otherwise populist platform, that threatens the globalist elite. Then, in an act of “protest”, Jourgensen decides to endorse a violent, left-wing extremist group. My guess? He’s trying to stay relevant. Otherwise, I’m at a loss for words; he can’t be THAT dumb, can he? But, I do know one thing; it’s going to be difficult to listen to “Jesus Built My Hot Rod”, “Stigmata”, or “New World Order” ever again.
Oh sure the Iraq war was a big waste of time and thousands of American and Iraqi lives but this guy, this guy wrote a song! I think uncle Al wrote the song before all the details of the organization’s tactics and whatnot were released. I mean, anti-facisim sounds pretty freakin ideal. I don’t think relevance has ever entered the man’s mind. Then again I can’t imagine anyone sitting back and thinking “how can I be more relevant ?” I don’t think that’s how creative types think.
Uh, Antifa is Communist and has been since it’s inception in the 30’s. They don’t hide that fact.
Al is from Cuba, his family fled Communism there.
Al Jourgensen is liberal cocksucker.
Even if one weren’t turned off by pandering to the mob, the weak lyrics reminiscent of Sharpee scrawl in a toilet at a hipster dive bar, the way overdone and outmoded industrial chug, the video is the worst kind of camp. He took the funny aesthetic from The Revolting Cocks’ “Do You Think I’m Sexy” and put it on something he takes seriously, which is thus not only ideologically retarded, but artistically inauthentic. Sadly, Al was at his best as a junkie.
Hey faggot, aren’t you the anal receptacle of black dicks who said, in defense of another band, that you don’t care that they’re anti-gay and people shouldn’t bring their political views into art? Here are your quotes, closeted twink boy… don’t even try and change the article btw, it’ll only get you embarrassed further because it’s archived.
“Nope. As it turns out, the Bad Brains weren’t too fond of homos, and they weren’t quiet about it either. They attacked fellow hardcore bands like the Dicks, the Big Boys and Hüsker Dü for being “bloodclot faggots.” See, the Bad Brains adopted Rastafarian culture, and one thing the Rastafarians, much like the Muslims, can’t stand are “bloodclot faggots.” Now, does that matter to me personally? Of course not.”
“But I was yelled at for being one of those guys who “only cares about the music.” I’M NOT KIDDING. I was accused of not being righteous enough, of ONLY caring that I liked the music. You can probably assume that, for some of these people, listening to Skrewdriver is completely out of the question.”
so which is it, the one whose anal gape resembles of a dormant volcano?
“My friend Stephen Sigl and I decided that the once respectable Ministry is now dead to us after seeing the video for their (well, his) new song, “Antifa.””
“I wonder if my reaction to Jourgensen’s taking on a pro-Antifa stance is similar to how some people reacted when Skrewdriver became a white power band in 1983.”
how self-aware, lmfao!
“Nah, I’m guessing not. See, I’m not offended that he took this stance” , nah that’s never taking offense when someone just gets triggered and declares a band dead because of a song, lollolololololol!
“cheapened his art by OFFICIALLY endorsing -the wrong- side” there, I fixed it for you triggered snowflake. Of course you could never be one of those basement dwelling incels(except you take it up the ass I presume) who want their music/games/movies to be their safe spaces and now you’re apparently not “only caring about the music” .
“but an otherwise populist platform, that threatens the globalist elite” –TINFOIL HAT ALERT!!!–
“But, I do know one thing; it’s going to be difficult to listen to “Jesus Built My Hot Rod”, “Stigmata”, or “New World Order” ever again.” Oh the humanity, LMFAO^2.
Still pissed about the grotesque sickness that was (and is) Trumpism. Everyone who supported that pile of shit needs to have the stupid and evil beat out of him.
Human garbage. Every last one of you.
Very astute observation. Nice work.
I mean really the worst one can say about Antifa is that they’re ineffectual and perhaps a little counterproductive insofar as their little schoolyard brawls with Nazi cockroaches like you are bad optics, but surely you’ll agree that if occasionally one of you happens to get his skull smashed by one that this is purely an intrinsic good all else being equal.
If this were a facebook thread, I’d just click on the laff icon.
I’m guessing someone as angry as you probably is single and a virgin and probably has a whole laundry list of problems. But, if this is therapeutic, carry on.
Oh Jesus Christ you’re an actual Nazi.The Chutzpah.
Also in my May 18 comment the 2nd “that” should probably have been “then.”
I think in retrospect my capitalization of “chutzpah” might be justifiable on the basis of Yiddish being essentially a German dialect, but it was a typo at the time so that would be a lucky mistake.
Anyways I find the rationalwiki page on you cretins entertainingly enlightening as usual.
