Anti-Flag Release Raucous New Single ‘Christian Nationalist’

Political punk rockers Anti-Flag are ready to attack neo-fascists on their new single “Christian Nationalist.”

Vocalist/guitarist Justin Sane shares insight into the song’s lyrics: “History is full of wealthy and powerful people using religion and cultism to justify policies of oppression and inequality. Invariably, these policies target the most vulnerable in society so that elites can maintain their dominance. Today we see this same strategy employed by right wing politicians all over the world. Just as the anti-fascists of the 1930’s and 1940’s rejected the fascist ideologies of their era, we reject the neo-fascists of this era. Theocracy is dangerous and inherently anti-democratic because it restricts individual choice and provides an avenue by which politicians can claim a moral superiority over “the other”. It gives political cover and justification for policies and actions which might otherwise be deemed morally objectionable, inhuman, or adverse to the best interest of the country.”

Watch the lyric video below.

Anti-Flag recently announced their European/UK tour that launches January 2020. They also have a run of intimate U.S. dates starting October 31st in New York followed by a show in Los Angeles on November 8th. The trek ends with a show in Chicago on December 20th. Tickets are on sale now. Check out all their dates here.
