Heavy Metal Band Korn on Obama "Worst its ever been"
Politico ^ | 12/8/2011 | Patrick Gavin

Posted on 12/08/2011 2:29:29 PM PST by GlockThe Vote

Frontman Jonathan Davis says: “I feel like Obama’s an Illuminati puppet. He’s basically dragged this country down into the worst it’s ever been. Like I say about the White House, ‘You’ve built this house of shame.’ Everybody looked up at the White House and America and now I think it’s like a house of shame. I miss the old days when people were proud to be American.”

I always thought that Snoop Dog should go on tour with Korn. They could call it the Korn Dog tour.

Korn is considered NU Metal, but they are a HUGE band with young people.

"Korn has never been a real political band.”

They are now...

0bama the Destroyer has that effect on people.

I have to give it to Korn - they have had some good staying power.

I always thought they would be lefties, but most metal bands are libertarians by and large.

Korn actually isn’t too bad - Musically. It’s heavy, but it’s also concentrated and rhythmic. The guys have done a lot of growing up - As will happen. But now I think that they have money, they are learning lessons about how to live. Basically, I see them becoming republican.

Maybe their liberal record companies stole from them, or something.

Terry Bozzio on drums, correct?

He’s aged quite well, but look at some of his drumming with Zappa, and you’d be unafraid, too!

Because it's a godless house. Where one man lived in the fear of the Lord, not the occupant thinks he's a god himself. Evil knows no bounds - now sitting on top of America while it's evil drips down on us - it's deadly poison to our 'one nation under God'. Obama the Destroyer. Satan came to kill, rob and destroy.

I’m telling you - most metal heads are right wingers.

I am in my late 30’s and from the 80’s, what most of us cheris most - Reagan, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Military, Strength.

Korn doing this will be a game changer.

RIGHT NOW!!!

I would love to see James Hetfield and Kerry King get out there too.

Dave Mustaine is a big libertarian too.

Also - MMA commentator Joe Rogan has been slamming obama a lot lately too.

Is anyone better off now?

What’s your definition of young?

Korn was popular when I was young, and I am old enough to be a grandpa.

I like Metallica and Megadeth. (Just don't mix them and alcohol.) However, Hetfield and Mustaine have not had the greatest respect of organized religion. Given Hetfield's upbringing, it's understandable. Mustaine has actually become a born again. However, he is seriously antiwar.

They were featured in a South Park episode, in a take-off of Scooby Doo Mysteries.

In 2005, the band’s lead guitarist and one of its founding members, Brian Welch, left the band after converting to Christianity. He even was baptized in the river Jordan. Google it.

Where one man lived in the fear of the Lord, not the occupant........

Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. What this means is--- fear of God's laws is the beginning of wisdom. You don't jump off a five story building thinking you can defy the laws of gravity. Gods laws, law of gravity, don't defy either or you can get some real problems. This is why the gays are a big joke. They think they can do better than the laws of God.

The guys have done a lot of growing up...

And probably want to keep more of the money they have EARNED with their music.

Speaking of which, I'm at the boiling point with the limousine liberal crowd (spoiled athletes, movie stars, entertainers, etc.) who say one thing and live another. Sean Penn, Michael Moore, and Matt Damon will NEVER see one penny of my money spent on ANYTHING they are associated with.

I never really got into Korn, but have a lot of my metal friends that do. I might have to give them another listen, but for now I’ll just listen to Sweet Leaf again.

I wouldn’t say “most”, but all my friends are metal heads and/or rockers, and most are also conservative. Its a great lifestyle to party your ass off and know that you are still among conservatives. Check out Visions of The Night for some good Canadian pro-military conservative metal.

Maybe Korn's former lead guitarist is an influence:

Brian "Head" Welch

Exactly.

The laws of gravity doesn’t change because they think they found a better way for their lifestyle. The laws are there - obey them or defy them and result of their choice is either LIFE or DEATH. Gays chose death by defying His laws as they are unchangeable as HE IS.

I’d rather see Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr get together and tour as the Whotles.

Of course, I know that Daltrey and Townshend have been busy with the Who’s Left tour.

Absolutely agree with you! Many of my older teen’s peers are extremely intelligent when it comes to how the world is. It was amazing hearing my 20-year-old retell the conversation among she and a group of friends while they were watching one of the pro-union, pro-liberal “rallies” here in our town square this summer. Liberals very falsely believe they have a lock on those of us who are “alternative” in any way shape or form. They are very sadly mistaken.
