John Dolmayan of System of a Down Calls Democrats ‘True Fascists,’ ‘True Bigots’

And he also wished Trump a happy birthday

System of a Down’s drummer John Dolmayan is back on Instagram with another politically charged post, as he wished the president a “happy birthday” on Sunday and called Democrats “the true bigots hidden in plain sight from the same party who fought to maintain slavery.”

Dolmayan has previously said his political leanings set him apart from his bandmates, particularly vocalist Serj Tankian, who recently called for the president’s resignation. And after calling Trump the “most attacked president in history yet the greatest friend to minorities” and calling the defunding of police “stupidity,” Dolmayan elaborated and explained why he shares his thoughts on Instagram.

“The reason I post my opinions on this forum and open myself up to attack and ridicule is for you, the silent ones who think they are alone in a world where their thoughts are alien or wrong,” Dolmayan wrote.

He then wrote that Democrats are also responsible for “non-voting rights for women” and “70 plus million abortions, a large majority of whom were black.”

The reason I post my opinions on this forum and open myself up to attack and ridicule is for you , the silent ones who think they are alone in a world where their thoughts are alien or wrong. You’re not alone , millions are with you. For those of you who think you are coming from a morally superior position therefore any differing opinion or viewpoint is invalid think again. It’s the easy path to think like you , it’s in their best self interests for celebrities and politicians to support you but you will lose in the end because you are the very thing you pretend to fight against. The true fascist, the true bigots hidden in plain sight from the same party who fought to maintain slavery , Jim Crow , non voting rights for women , and who are directly responsible for 70 plus million abortions ,a large majority of whom were black. You don’t want free speech , you can’t handle free speech because you are cowards and need to be herded along with the rest of the sheep. I’m lucky , I’m in an industry where you CAN be honest about your views wherever they fall with little to no repercussions. I don’t rely on a movie studio , label , media or anyone else who will bow down to pandering political correctness and am in no danger whatsoever of “ losing my job” because you don’t like what I have to say . This is a dangerous time where free thought and speech is under attack but it will pass , the next generation is watching as they always do and they will overcome your insanity. Oh , happy birthday President Trump and good luck in November!

Tankian, on the other hand, recently shared a VICE article analyzing SOAD lyrics, claiming the group “radicalized” a generation of metal fans. He also continues to share posts in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
