ok, i know that there are quite a few non-americans on this forum (at least i think so) and i apologize and i realize you may not care.
i came across this band today called anti flag. and if i do say so myself they are one of the worst and most cowardly bands in the entire world. the bassis and "purpose" of their music is to say how the US govt is a lie and that it is the worst thing in the world. now, this is comming from a proud American citizen that has many many people in his family that were in and still are in the Armed forces. a number of those people were in the US Marines. here are some excerpts from one of their songs...
"You've gotta die, gotta die, gotta die for your government?
Die for your country? That's shit!"
"There's a Gulf War vet, dying a slow, cold death
And the government says, "We don't know the source of his sickness."
But don't believe what they say, because your government is lying
They've done it before and don't you know they'll do it again
A secret test, government built virus
"Subject Test Group: Gulf Battle Field Troops""
"First World War veterans slaughtered, by General Eisenhower
You give them your life, they give you a stab in the back
Radiation, agent orange, tested on US souls
Guinea pigs for Western corporations
I never have, I never will
Pledge allegiance to their flag
You're getting used, you'll end up dead"
so, if you are an American on this thread, please tell me whether you think this band is "speaking the truth" or not.
in my opinion, these bastards should be glad that they at least live in a country that actualy allows them to have this type of music. i dont quite think that they realize how good they have it here.
they dont realize that if they were to go nd live in another country and find "faults" in the other countries govt and they started to sing about it... the dont realize that they would most likely be executed because of treason to their govt... god i hate ignorant people, the people that live where they really do have it free, and its right infront of their damn face but they cant see it
oh, and apparently, they say that saluting the flag and saying the pledge of alliegence is cowardly...
