I'd love to be let loose in that room with a hurley, good to see those fighting against antifa there are non white.


Antifa have upped their campaign against Metal acts visiting the USA. Threatening venues that host bands with violent attacks. This band Taake were playing in Dumpland a few years ago and an antifa drunk kept hassling the singer while he was trying to perform. The singer kicked him in the head a few times and the antifa feen kept coming back at him, grabbing his legs etc, the singer eventually smashed a bottle of wine off his head.

Not really up on this band but apparently the singer wore a swastika on stage in Germany about 15 years ago.

Antifa Is Violently Threatening Norwegian Heavy Metal Bands Now




Quote:
Over the past two weeks, noted radical leftist organization Antifa decided (rather arbitrarily) to impose its own interpretation and enforcement on what should and should not be consumed by American music fans. Norwegian black metal band, Taake, was set to perform a number of shows on its upcoming North American tour but ran into trouble as Antifa members reportedly threatened venues where Taake was performing. Antifa members also appear to have threatened concertgoers and individuals involved in the production of Taake’s shows.

Utilizing Twitter and Facebook (apparently NOT violating either’s terms of service), Antifa communicated its marching orders and public threats.

Antifa, which propagates the narrative that it’s not an “organization” in order to publicly seed a grassroots identity, is indeed very organized and it acts, in many cases, as a militia armed with baseball bats, pepper spray, tear gas and other instruments of violence.

The chief argument Antifa and its sympathizers make is that Taake is a “Nazi” band because frontman, Hoest, once donned a painted swastika on his chest at one performance in Germany in 2007 with rather negative fallout. Hoest, a black metal musician for the past 25 years, has been a well-respected artist in the Norwegian metal scene and is known for his strong disdain of Abrahamic religions, which is not unusual in black metal music. It’s important, however, to note that being against a belief system is much different than a disregard for the followers of a belief system — and Hoest has never shown a propensity to hold religious individuals in contempt. He is certainly not a member of any far-right or neo-Nazi organization. In fact, Taake is one of many recent artists to perform in Tel Aviv, Israel.

While the allure of particularly heavy bands like Taake escape many, it’s clear that there are tens of thousands of metal fans who find value in the band’s art and music. As someone who has studied both controversial black metal music and horror films extensively as an academic, it’s important to note that symbols of evil have been used many times to denote a particular disposition, create a certain setting and make a specific statement about the nature of humanity and transgression. Hoest is profoundly influenced by German horror filmmaker, Jorg Buttgereit, who found himself a target of German authorities upon the release of the film Der Todesking. (See my analysis of the film here.)

Of course, the goal of Antifa and its violent supporters is not to protect Jewish individuals — like myself — from the rise of neo-Nazis Rather, the goal of Antifa is to dictate what can and cannot be allowed in American music clubs. While Antifa has every right to protest Taake for whatever reason it may wish to, it crosses the line when it engages in violent threats and actions. And before every armchair First Amendment scholar on Facebook types in all caps “but the First Amendment doesn’t protect people from consequences, so Taake has to deal with the consequences of once donning a swastika!” let’s not forget that criminal code in every one of the 50 states does, indeed, protect performers, fans and music venue employees from the threat of violence and the imposition of terrorism.

Of course, the real goal of Antifa is not to elucidate truth or engage in discourse surrounding Taake’s art. Rather, like many modern Marxist organizations, the goal is victory over free speech, free expression and the right of citizens to engage in discussion. This real goal, as we know, is part of a greater scheme to dismantle the republican system of governance and impose a more repressive form of rule focused on wealth redistribution and, maybe the not-so-figurative re-introduction of the guillotine.

As ACLU past president and current Heterodox Academy member Nadine Strossen informs us with her scholarship, censoring what is perceived as “hate speech,” (not to imply that Taake engages in hate speech because they really don’t) is based on the premise that the act of censorship prevents discrimination and psychological injuries. As Strossen notes in her upcoming text “Hate,” there is scant evidence that this censorship does anything to actually protect anyone from harm. For years, Strossen has promoted rigorous counter-speech to troubling ideas. However, it appears that, for today’s young Marxist activists, counter-speech is not nearly enough and clearly does not assist in moving closer their ultimate goal of violent revolution.

In 2016 I wrote a piece in Decibel magazine about Taake and the terroristic tear gassing of music fans in a Northern California music club. These fans are mothers, fathers and people from all walks of life — black, brown, Jewish and Buddhist. Back then I feared a domestic art and music scene that would be stunted and censored by those waving the flag of — their own interpretation of — social justice. Now, two years later, it is beyond unfortunate that many who claim to support social justice seem unconcerned about actual social discourse and the right to engage in challenging art.

Rather, Antifa and its largely unchallenged terroristic threats and actions have taken us one step closer to totalitarianism and a giant leap away from the freedoms we cherish in America.

I hope it left some nasty scars. The only way to deal with these fascists is to really, really hurt them.

The band's official statement on the American tour cancellation.

Quote:
It is with great regret that we have to inform you that Taake's US Tour has been cancelled. Despite all those incredible people who stepped up and tried to help us save the tour, and to whom we are more grateful than we can express, time and logistics are just not on our side. It was not our wish to cancel, but the decision was forced on us by the illegal activities of Antifa and its supporters who applied pressure on venues and promoters to cancel shows. Pressure, it has to be said, that has frequently been accompanied with threats of violence both towards those involved in the organisation and towards any fans attending (not to mention the bands who would be playing). Why these threats are not reported to the police, we don't know.
We have explained on many, many occasions, the history behind what caused the problems, and there are plenty of articles in the unbiased press and on social media where you can read the truth of it, but just for the sake of clarity Taake is not now, has never been, and never will be a Nazi band. What we want to address here is the cancellation of the tour itself.
This cancellation is unfortunate in many ways, not just for the bands who were going to take part. Not just for the ordinary working Americans with families to support and bills to pay who have lost much needed income because of it. Not just for the fans who wanted to see the bands. Not just for music fans in general. But, also, and more importantly, for America as a whole.
Why? Because it is the ultimate demonstration of how, through the dissemination of lies, misinformation and unfounded accusations, along with credible threats of violence, a small minority of left wing agitators are able to force their agenda on the majority, and deprive music fans of their freedom to attend concerts and go about their day to day activities without the fear of reprisals and retaliation.
And these agitators won't stop once they have destroyed the soft targets from Europe and other parts of the world. Their next targets will be American music, American art, American literature, American theatre, American cinema. Anything, in fact, that does not adhere strictly to their views. And if this reminds you of the McCarthy witch hunts, it is because that is EXACTLY what it is like.

Whilst none of us blame venues for cancelling because they are afraid of violence, we do deplore the excuses presented by some of them. The desire to "protect" their audience and staff, to create "safe spaces" is not a need brought about by the bands involved, nor their fans. It is the masked thugs hiding behind the banner of Antifa and other organisations like them, who are doing all the threatening. And maybe we should also remind these venues that so many of the musical genres today exist due to those other small venues back in the day who dared stand up to threats and gave a voice to those musicians who brought us Blues and Jazz - the basis of so much of today's music.
We would also like to speak out about celebrities like Talib Kweli, who was unfortunate enough to have allowed himself to be played by the lies spread by Antifa and who, as a result, issued statements that are libellous and slanderous. His heart may have misguidedly been in the right place, but his brain, and his legal advisors, were not. Had he bothered to check the facts he would have realised that he had put himself in a position of looking like someone who doesn't know, or understand, or even care about, all the facts, and who is easily manipulated by others to dance to their tune.
We should also mention those members of the press who failed to fact check and did not bother to contact us, or anyone else for that matter, for our side of the story. They simply went right ahead and printed libellous statements. This is irresponsible journalism at its worst, and we can't just single out inexperienced editors of webzines. Complicit in this are long-established and (once) respected publications. Their actions show the utter contempt they have for facts and the disrespect they have for their readers.
Ending on a positive note, we really do need thank those who stood by us, and especially the venues who refused to be cowed, and those that stepped in offering us alternatives for cancelled shows. We have had messages from all over the world, and from people of all political and religious persuasions, offering not just their support, but also offering their help. And these are not just our fans. We have been contacted by people who admit that they had never heard of us, or that they hate black metal, or that they hate Taake, but have nevertheless felt compelled to let us know of the disgust they feel at the way Antifa, and their like, demand slavish adherence to their agenda, and punish anyone who defies them, riding roughshod over the freedoms of the American people to decide for themselves.
You, my friends, do not need to apologise for the lies and actions of a fringe group. You are the majority, you are the ones who refuse to bow your heads to those who would dictate how you live your lives, and who attempt to restrict your freedoms - you are the ones who can do something about it.
Taake
