SOAD’s SERJ TANKIAN Slams DONALD TRUMP: ‘You’re Not Really Our President’

Serj Tankian

SYSTEM OF A DOWN frontman Serj Tankian has slammed Donald Trump for failing to making a formal address to the nation as cities across the country continue to protest the police killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man.

On Sunday night (May 31), Tankian shared The Guardian article headlined “Trump Fled To Bunker As Protests Over George Floyd Raged Outside White House” on his Instagram and he included the following message: “Run Donny run into your bunker. You may be the first US President to do so out of fear of your own citizens.

“A real leader would address the nation properly and a real man would go face the protestors on the streets in person,” he continued. “But like other corrupt undemocratic leaders in the past, you’ve realized they are not your people as you are not really our President.

“These protests are not just over race but over institutional injustices beginning with the slave era electoral college that put you in power, K Street lobbying firms, superdelegates of a two party duopolistic Neo-liberal corporatocracy whose day has come.

“You make antifa a terrorist organization but not the KKK?

“The lessons of the 2018 peaceful successful revolution in Armenia can be applied in the US and elsewhere in the world,” Serj added. “Coordinate online and block every street everywhere and force the regime to resign. The time has come. Your time has come @realdonaldtrump”

Run Donny run into your bunker. You may be the first US President to do so out of fear of your own citizens. A real leader would address the nation properly and a real man would go face the protestors on the streets in person. But like other corrupt undemocratic leaders in the past, you’ve realized they are not your people as you are not really our President. These protests are not just over race but over institutional injustices beginning with the slave era electoral college that put you in power, K Street lobbying firms, superdelegates of a two party duopolistic Neo-liberal corporatocracy whose day has come. You make antifa a terrorist organization but not the KKK? The lessons of the 2018 peaceful successful revolution in Armenia can be applied in the US and elsewhere in the world. Coordinate online and block every street everywhere and force the regime to resign. The time has come. Your time has come @realdonaldtrump
