Everyone’s favorite OG punks Anti-Flag just released a new video, the aptly titled “Christian Nationalist.” Jam it and get stoked for their special appearance at House of Machines in L.A.

“History is full of wealthy and powerful people using religion and cultism to justify policies of oppression and inequality,” says vocalist and guitarist Justin Sane. “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 1930s and 1940s 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.”

Catch them at their special L.A. appearance, or on tour in a city near you.
