First a Democratic Congressman calls for “bloody streets,” now the SEIU’s theme song calls for violence. Note to the left, we’re not stupid, we know exactly we’re you’re going with this . . . and, yes, we are ready.
(The Blaze) — First violent signs, now violent songs.
The band Dropkick Murphys wants to do its part to stand with the Wisconsin protesters. What does that look like? Actually it sounds like a new song, released on union websites including the SEIU’s, that screams such phrases as “take the bastards down!” and “we got to smash them to the ground!”
“As part of the band’s efforts to support the workers, they are working with SEIU and other unions and labor federations to have the song available to be played at rallies across the country,” a post on SEIU’s website says.
In a statement yesterday, the band made it clear that they are avid supporters of the unrest in Wisconsin:
[We] would like to take a moment to acknowledge the struggles of the working people of Wisconsin and to pledge our support and solidarity by releasing the song ‘Take ’Em Down’ from our upcoming album. We think it’s appropriate at the moment and hope you like it. . . The Dropkick Murphys Stand With Wisconsin!!!!! [emphasis original]
