I get the point, now let ne think for myself, like Bad Religion traditionally have encouraged me to do.

A far more interesting topic would be to actually explore what drives people into supporting Trump or the Alt-right movement, instead of just implying "Those people are stupid".

Exactly. There are any number of bands that can write obvious pop punk songs about how Trump and the Alt-right suck. I expect a higher standard from BR. As you said, there is plenty of meat on the bone as far as topics to explore as to HOW we got here and WHY we are here politically, and hey, maybe even some ideas on how to move past this. Hopefully the rest of album takes it up several notches musically and maybe looks a little deeper lyrically. I can't believe I'm even typing the latter regarding BR.

Bad Religion, the democratic party's very own punk rock band since 2001.

Musically it's toothless. Band sounds weary. I liked the lyrics in the bridge, that was the best written part of the song. As for the overall message...not really what I hoped BR would comment on, but I guess I should've seen it coming after their latest batch of merchandise. Still disappointed. I can listen to any jackoff punk band and get "can you believe this Drumpf guy he is lidderly Hitler omg".

I'm still hoping for the album to have some commentary on the ridiculous political correctness and victim mentality on American universities. But those aren't coming from the right so, slim chance I guess.

Hahaha. Give them some credit. Bad Religion aren't a stupid band. They wouldn't get pulled in by dog-whistling or attacking minorities. They don't punch down.

Well, they do seem to prefer the easy and mainstream targets these days, you're right about that.

But hey if they do end up having a song about that on the album, I'll treat everyone a coke. Or Pepsi.

I guess I don't like the message, here.

Mean to say, I served my country. I was in the fighting in Afghanistan(Kunar Province. . 1-508, 173rd AB), and I'm very proud of that service. I'm also proud to be an American. 

I'm sure there are some other vets here, and I'm sure they are proud of their service. Why not a song for the new Brown Shirts(ANTIFA)?

And for the record, I don't shoot an AR15. I had my M4 nearly get me killed on 2 occasions when the piece of shit stopped working at really bad times, lol.

We shoot AK74 pattern rifles in my house.I own 3 of these fine rifles: an arsenal, a very nice Redjacket and a Molot Vepr. The '74(which uses the very lethal 545x39) were what the Dushmen in Kunar used while I was over in that lovely counrty. 

My Father, who served 27 months in Vietnam with 5th SFG, always said, "AK's ALWAYS WORK."

This song is about the Alt-Right (You know, The_Donald browsing, pepe-posting white supremacists). Is there a misunderstanding here? It's not anti-army.

And Bad Religion are an anti-fascist band. They would never write a song against Antifa.

You can't be an anti-fascist and criticise ANTIFA? Of course you can.

Yes. Don't choose sides, choose reason. If someone is spewing bullshit, call them out, not because they are on the right or on the left, but because they are spewing bullshit.

Yeah, okay, but I just don't see them doing it when there's infinitely more pressing and dangerous matters at hand.

Guys guys guys guys. It's easy and simple. We write better stuff than this shit. And we're doing alright. Move along, nothing to hear other than elderly misanthropia. Circle complete. This religion has indeed become bad. It's time to drop the cross.

Meanwhile, am sure Bobby is doing fine.
