Are you a "white liberal" who woke up on November 10 to the shocking fact that white supremacy is alive and well in America? Are you a "person of color" who knew this all along? Did some of your "family" die in the "Holocaust?" Are you a "survivor" of "sexual assault?" Are you a "conservative" who is troubled by the appointment of an "unrepentant white nationalist" to a major "White House" position? One who ran a "news site" with the below listed headlines? And whose appointment everyone is treating as completely fucking "normal?" And as "politics" as usual instead of MAYBE a tiny bit of a "human rights" problem?
Well you're in "luck," because O.H.M. has the music you NEED to get you through these tough times with the Ultimate Neo-Fascism Playlist!
While you're wringing your hands trying to figure out what else to do with the imminent and insidious Coming of the Third Reich in America, you might as well bide your time doing what all of us apparently do better than anything else: Fiddle around with electronics while our proverbial Rome burns to the ground!
Here are five great tunes that belong on everyone's Neo-Fascism playlist!
1. Black Boys on Mopeds (Sinead O'Connor): Among other things, this song is about the 1983 death of Colin Roach, a 21 year-old black British man who was shot by police and whose death was allegedly covered up by the State. Here are some choice lyrics from the song that will get you FUCKIN' PUMPED for suppression of the free press, mass-gaslighting, and all of the sleeping sheep who tell you all of this is normal: "I've said this before now/You said I was childish and you'll say it now/Remember what I told you/If they hated me they will hate you/These are dangerous days/To say what you feel is to lay your own grave." YES, BITCHES!!
2. Russians (Sting): Sting wrote this hit song in 1985 about the Cold War, but with Russia and Julian FuckAmericaInTheAssange basically running AmeriKKKa from a Soviet basement internet server now, these lyrics are more prescient than ever: "In Europe and America/There's a growing feeling of hysteria/Conditioned to respond to all the threats/In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets/There is no monopoly on common sense/On either side of the political fence/We share the same biology, regardless of ideology/Believe me when I say to you/I hope the Russians love their children too/There is no historical precedent/To put the words in the mouth of the President?/There's no such thing as a winnable war/It's a lie we don't believe anymore." I MEAN, HOW ON POINT IS THIS?! GET PSYCHED PEOPLE!
3. Sunday Bloody Sunday (U2): Bono from U2 is the CLASSIC "Let's freak out about fascism" mega star, and no song embodies his philosophy better than Sunday Blood Sunday, detailing Ireland's 1/30/72 Bogside Massacre in which British soldiers shot 26 unarmed civilians during a peaceful protest march against internment of alleged IRA sympathizers: "I can't believe the news today/I can't close my eyes and make it go away/How long, how long must we sing this song, how long/And the battle's just begun/There's many lost, but tell me who has won/The trench is dug within our hearts/And mother's, children, brothers sisters torn apart." TEAR IT UP YOU GUYS!! PUT THIS ONE ON REPEAT!
4. Killing in the Name (Rage Against the Machine): No "get ready for life under a fascist overlord" playlist is complete without this classic by Rage Against the Machine: "Killing in the name of!/Some of those that work forces/are the same that burn crosses/And now you do what they told you/Now you're under control/You justify those that died by wearing the badge/They're the chosen whites/Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me!" SWEET! VIVA LA RESISTANCE!
5. Behind the Wall (Tracy Chapman): This one goes out to all you rape and domestic violence survivors and "feminazis" who now have a confessed sexual assailant in charge of her country. Good thing Tracy Chapman has some words about that: "Last night I heard the screaming/Loud voices behind the wall/Another sleepless night for me/Won't do no good to call/The police always come late if they come at all/Last night I heard the screaming/A silence that chilled my soul/I prayed that I was dreaming/When I saw the ambulance in the road." COME ON, IT DOES NOT GET BETTER THAN THIS. DOESN'T THIS SONG GET YOU FUCKING AMPED FOR NORMALIZATION OF SEXUAL ASSAULT AND DV?!
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS PEOPLE. History repeats itself folks, and so does a Playlist on shuffle!
