The Fascists Amongst Us.
It is difficult to imagine that at the dawn of the new millennium, censorship is rearing its ugly head once again. We are speaking, of course, of the feeble attempt by the so-called “Anti Racist Action” to stop us from exercising our right to peaceful assembly.
Hiding behind the flags of “Tolerance” and “Diversity”, they aim to usurp our civil rights by trying to prevent a legal gathering between like-minded individuals. The fact that “Tolerance” also applies to our way of thinking only helps to underscore the hypocrisy of these Orwellian, double-speaking thugs. According to these goons, “Free Speech” only applies to their narrow, bigoted way of thinking. We will not allow ourselves, as freethinking individuals, to conform to their McCarthy-era style of Fascism.
While we defend their right to protest, we will not be cowed, or assaulted, and will resort to any and all legal means to defend ourselves from these marginalized would-be assassins of free speech. The laws of the land apply equally to all citizens, and we will not be denied our right to believe as we choose, regardless of how unpopular our views may seem to some. It is also important to note that we find their views, such as their undying support for convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, repugnant, yet we do not interfere with their right to think as they see fit, nor would we want to “convert” them. We reserve the same right without any outside interference.
We are not an army, corporation, organization, or gang. We do not “recruit” individuals. We do not condone violence. What we do is allow law-abiding citizens with similar views to communicate their points without the threat of reprisal, all the while enjoying camaraderie, and some great bands. We’ve held many shows in the past without any incidents, and we will continue to do so.
After all is said and done, ask yourselves who the true Fascists are. If we are silenced this time, you may be next, for the simple act of exercising your God-given rights. Stand up for free speech, and send these third rate junior dictators a clear message- Censorship is un-American, and it will not be tolerated!
