‘Alt-right’ neonazis parody song

This 20 January 2017 parody music video from Britain is called Alt-Free – “Alt-Right Now”.

It is a parody of the 1970 English rock song ‘All Right Now‘ by Free.

It is about the ‘alt-right’ neonazis; one of whom is the ‘I’ in the lyrics.

The lyrics are:

There she stood in the street
Blue hair from her head to her feet
I said, “Hey, SJW
Doesn’t cultural Marxism trouble you?”
She said, “Hey!” and she cried,
“What you mean is white genocide
I said, “Shut up, libtard
‘Cause I’m red-pilled and fucking hard

Alt-right now, baby, it’s a-alright now
Alt-right now, baby, it’s a-alright now

I explained it was Jews
All behind the globalist ruse
She just virtue signalled
Like some faggy normie cuckold
I said, “Can you not see
I’ve no time for feminazis
She said, “Diversity is our strength”
So I dropped my trousers
And I showed her my length

Alt-right now, baby, it’s a-alright now
Alt-right now, baby, it’s a-alright now

The alt-right’s DeploraBall was met with massive protests: here.

Green Day Rips Donald Trump In New ‘Troubled Times’ Video

Green Day takes aim at President-elect Donald Trump in its latest video.

A clip from the “Troubled Times” video, which the punk rock band posted online on Monday, shows a  Trump-like figure in a red “Make America Great Again” cap apparently spewing antagonistic rhetoric to crowds.

… The clip ends ominously, with someone pressing a big red button to cause a gigantic mushroom cloud. …

While the group doesn’t mention Trump by name in the video or song from its album “Revolution Radio,” it has not been shy about criticizing the former reality television personality in the past.

At the 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards, the day before the presidential election, they changed the words to their 2004 hit “American Idiot” from “subliminal mind-fuck America” to “subliminal mind-Trump America.”

And two weeks later at the American Music Awards, the rockers added the extra line of “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA” while performing “Bang Bang”.

B Street Band cancels plans to play Trump inauguration gala over loyalty to Springsteen

Monday, January 16, 2017, 3:20 PM

BY Adam Edelman

January 20 won’t be a glory day for the B Street Band after all.

The well-known Bruce Springsteen cover band that had been booked to play one of the several inauguration galas this week, has canceled its performance, citing its loyalty to “The Boss” himself …

“With deepest apologies to our fans and the New Jersey Inaugural Ball committee, the B Street Band is withdrawing from performing at this year’s inauguration Gala,” the band said in a statement to Backstreets, a Bruce Springsteen fan website.

“Our decision is based SOLELY on the respect and gratitude we have for Bruce and the E Street Band,” the band said.

The B Street Band, which has been playing since 1980 and who also played both of President Obama’s New Jersey inauguration balls, had been slated to play the Thursday night Garden State Inaugural Gala, one of at least 14 unofficial balls schedule[d] on top of the three official Trump inaugural balls.

But news of the gig sparked outrage among some members of the E Street Band, whose leader had himself been an outspoken Trump critic.

Last week Garry Tallent, the bass player in the E Street Band, expressed displeasure over the news.

“Please tell me this is more fake news. Or at least a joke,” Tallent tweeted Thursday along with a link to a news story about the B Street Band’s engagement.

Springsteen himself didn’t weigh in on the gig, but has continued to criticize Trump.

“I’ve felt disgust before, but never the kind of fear that you feel now,” Springsteen said earlier this month on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast about Trump.

“It’s as simple as the fear of, is someone simply competent enough to do this particular job? Forget about where they are ideologically. Do they simply have the pure competence to be put in the position of such responsibility?”

The New Jersey rocker has also described Trump as a “flagrant, toxic narcissist.”

Maybe Trump wil now try to find a tribute band to the B Street Band?

Meet The Con Artist Leading Trump’s Inauguration Prayer

29 December 2016

Trump’s Inauguration guest list has some pretty interesting characters on it including a shady televangelist who has been investigated by the IRS and Senate. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian of The Young Turks discuss Paula White, the TV preacher leading Trump’s Inauguration prayer. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“In 2007, TV preacher Paula White got investigated by the U.S. Senate for her shady fundraising practices.

Ten years later, she will pray at Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Yes, really.

White is a televangelist with a huge audience and a knack for stirring controversy. She’s been a Trump booster for years, and she helped organize a summit for him in the early days of his presidential campaign with other televangelists. Her presence at the inauguration is a very strong indicator that Trump’s White House will be a safe space for the Christian right’s most controversial characters.”

Not all Mormon choir members want to get nearer to Donald Trump.

By Chris D’Angelo in the USA:

Mormon Tabernacle Choir Singer Resigns Because Trump Reminds Her Of Hitler

She would never sing for Adolf, and she won’t stay in a choir that sings for The Donald.

12/30/2016 04:58 pm ET

A member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has resigned in protest over the group’s upcoming performance at Donald Trump’s inauguration, saying she could “never look [herself] in the mirror again” if she sang for the president-elect ― a man she likens to Adolf Hitler.

In a letter sent to the choir and later posted on Facebook, Jan Chamberlin explained that she has “spent several sleepless nights and days in turmoil and agony,” reflecting, praying and searching her soul.

“I’ve tried to tell myself that it will be alright and that I can continue in good conscience before God and man,” she wrote. “But it’s no use. I simply cannot continue with the recent turn of events. I could never look myself in the mirror again with self respect.”

By performing at the Jan. 20 ceremony, Chamberlin said, the choir will create the impression that it’s “endorsing tyranny and facism [sic].”

“History is repeating itself; the same tactics are being used by Hitler (identify a problem, finding a scapegoat target to blame, and stirring up people with a combination of fanaticism, false promises, and fear, and gathering the funding),” she wrote.

“I only know I could never ‘throw roses to Hitler.’ And I certainly could never sing for him.”

More than 200 of the choir’s 360 members are expected to perform at Trump’s inauguration, church officials earlier told The Salt Lake City Tribune.

But Chamberlin is not alone in her distress. Randall Thacker, a lifelong Mormon, launched a petition urging the choir not to perform for an “incoming president who has demonstrated sexist, racist, misogynistic, and xenophobic behavior that does not align with the principles and teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”

Though many individual members of the Mormon Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints may oppose bigotry, official leaders have a history of anti-African American racism, and a present of misogyny and homophobia.

As of Friday, the petition had topped 24,000 signatures.

Chamberlin concluded her lengthy letter thus: “My heart is shattered and broken … but my conscience is clear. And THAT, really is all that matters.”

Todd Starnes of Fox News blasted Chamberlin’s post on Friday, noting that choir members’ participation in the inauguration is strictly voluntary and describing her Hitler comparison as “not only intellectually dishonest ― it’s downright repulsive.”

Trump’s transition team has struggled to find performers for his inauguration. The Rockettes are scheduled to perform, but one member of the famed dance company has also spoken out. She told Marie Claire, “This is making our show, our job, our name, branded as right-wing. An extreme right-wing.”
