Marty Friedman Attacks Political Correctness

Former Megadeth shredder Marty Friedman attacked modern political correctness and the hypersensitivity of special snowflakes in a recent interview with the Cleveland Scene:

What kind of changes have you noticed in the States?
A lot of the way people think changes rapidly. When I grew up here, nobody was PC or conscious about offending people with the way they talk. People are just normal. They didn’t care about politics. They weren’t so polarized on issues, especially people I come across, the rock musicians and fans. Those people were the last people to care. Now, those people want to talk about politics, and I have no idea what they’re talking about. Even the PC thing has gotten out of control over here. I did an email interview and my publicist said I had to take something out because people would be offended. There was nothing racist or anything like that. They were nitpicking all these little things. I had to go with it because I don’t know the climate here. I was surprised by the things people might be offended. If you like the music that somebody makes, you shouldn’t wrap yourself up with what kind of person that is. It really doesn’t matter, and it robs you of the enjoyment. If Charles Manson made an album and I liked it, I wouldn’t care about the person who made it. People listen to the music and love it and have great times and then find out the singer is a Republican or something and don’t like the music. Who’s the loser here? It’s the person listening to the music.

Friedman is right that the left is trying to politicize all discourse in culture. This is exactly as it was in the former Soviet Union, which mandated that all art and popular culture reflect Marxist values. The current political left and their allies in the mainstream entertainment industries have been trying to force social realism upon occidental populations for almost thirty years now.

Remember the random black sidekicks in semi-historical costume drama films like Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Gladiator? Remember all the kill yourself bad “tearjerkers” like Philadelphia and The Dallas Buyers Club and trying to tell the audience that gay men dying of AIDS are bigger heroes than everyone else not spreading a deadly disease and paying the consequences for their homosexual hedonism? The socialist controlled media is actively trying to undermine the safety and health of western populations in order to eventually replace them with a more complacent mob who can’t support themselves whom they hope to buy off with bread and circuses.

Heavy metal fans are not particularly complacent, are anti-authoritarian, and certainly do not worship the weak; Hessians are more Genghis Khan than Mother Teresa. Antifascist manlets are attacking metal bands who utilize any political imagery they don’t like in an attempt to force everything into their socialist world view. Social justice warriors desire conformity to crossdressing, deformed facial piercings, pink hair, and obesity. Moreover, social justice warriors want to murder everyone who does not view these deviancies as the norm. Since these are deviancies from the norm that tend to prohibit reproduction, they are not the norm and can never be so. Intersectionality is just another mass delusion up there with communism (Actual communists would just have shot the pink-haired for being annoying), millennialism, cults of personality, Wahhabist/Salafist Islam, and the Cultural Revolution. Hessians should show no mercy to these delusional modern day Tipper Gores.

    Don’t forget Dragon’s Kiss, an album that gets unfairly forgotten between Cacophony and Rust In Peace. Marty is a true guitar hero, original and passionate like few others.

      Fuck yeah brother, Evil Thrill is a *great* song.

      Aside since I am way too busy getting my dick sucked to make another post: Friedman isn’t talking about special snowflakes here Daniel, he’s talking about those with the obnoxious tendency to politicize every nitpicked detail of a statement, like you’re doing in this article.

      1. PapayaSF says:

        After leftists make everything political and snowflakes whine about it all endlessly, leftist snowflakes always claim that anyone who points this out is “politicizing” or “being a snowflake.”

        tee hee

      What about his/her/hir more contemporary works?

    Sick of freedom haters but what a paradox. They have the freedom to bitch about the freedoms they receive. Bitching because they heard some words from someone they could just walk away from or attempt to debate. I’m saying attempt because they really have no argument. The worst is when they say they are against “the man” but continuously impose their own authoritarian rules, complete hive mind bull

    It’s quite dangerous to make a distinction between SJWs and ‘real’ communists. This is the real thing, albeit an American version. Their silly appearance is nothing but the logical conclusion of the worship of relativism in Marxism. The only reason they’re not shooting us is because they don’t have the power to do it yet without backlash.

      Feminism has always been a branch of Communism.

      It’s decidedly not. A central concept in ‘communism’ is that history is an exact science and that the future can be predicted based on it. Different stages of ‘history’ correspond with different ‘ruling classes’ based on the (technical) development of the means of production. While society was predominantly agrarian, the rules where ‘the nobility’, ie, the class of people owning (huge swaths of) the land. When trade/ commerce became dominant, the bourgoise became the ruling class. Trade/ commerce led to industrialization with ‘members of the bourgoise’ (small minority of the total population) owning the factories while ‘the masses’ work in them without controlling anything. The so-called middle class is supposed to vanish as capitalism develops, with the majority of its former members ending up in the proletariat (the factory workers). Because these vastly outnumber the capitalists and because capitalism is systematically deficient, a revolution of the factory workers which causes them to become the ruling class is supposed to take place which is supposed to change how society is organized such that it actually works (a materialistic variant of the Christian paradise).

      And the people worrying about “the right way of using pronouns to address others” and other such non-issues are certainly not “impoverished factory workers about to take control of their own destinty because of their overwhelming force [in numbers]”. More a ‘classic’ example of members of the ruling class degenerating into terminal incompetence by gradually losing contact with observable reality.

    With barely any surgery or hormones he would make a great tranny.

    Fuck the snowflakes, once triggered just keep going til they snap & have a meltdown. Then keep going. Eventually they’ll have a heart attack or kill themselves.

    1. Yuzerneigm says:

      Or maybe they won’t just meltdown and will have to be dealt with as seems to be the case currently.

    He looks like he selling his ass cheap at a slant eyed gook fish shop with massage parlors in the back, during the day he plays guitar while businessmen eat chop suey and sushi, then their penises get bulging and erect after biting into boiled tiger balls and they make their way through the back hallway where they enter a small back room with a massage table, MArty is sitting in a corner in a bathrobe with a naughty look on his face, an embarrassed pinky is raised to his bottom lip, which he playfully pulls and pokes, it yields and kneads like soft skin of penis, wet on the other side, soft on all both, lips apart, accepting, surrendered…

      This seems suspiciously descript. Perhaps this is your idea of a good time?

  7. InfoWhores says:

    You know things have hit a boiling point when an inoffensive guy like Marty Friedman thinks it’s bullshit.
