SLAYER’s TOM ARAYA Angers Fans By Sharing ‘Conservatives Vs. Liberals’ Chain Letter

Tom Araya

SLAYER frontman Tom Araya has angered some of his fans by sharing an ages-old chain letter on Instagram that compared liberals’ actions unfavorably to those of conservatives on a number of issues.

He noted:

“With all the crazy sh*t going on, I have to ask. I sit on the fence of reason. Comments and opinions welcomed.

Here’s the differences between “conservatives” and “liberals”:

If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Liberals demand that those they don’t like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a conservative decides he needs healthcare, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that providesit.
A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a conservative reads this, he’ll show it to his friends and have a good laugh.
A liberal will delete it because he’s “offended”

This led to a number of fans responding that the sound bite “test” obviously doesn’t accurately define either conservative or liberal values or solutions, nor does it begin to delve into the vast complexities of today’s political, economic and sociological issues.

Among those chiming in was SACRED REICH frontman Phil Rind, who wrote: “I couldn’t disagree more but I will always love SLAYER!”

Meanwhile, Araya‘s SLAYER bandmate Gary Holt also commented: “Too bad red states take more in aid than anyone and the meat industry and dairy are fighting the use of the word ‘milk’ such as soy milk, as if anyone with a brain would confuse the two, per the vegetarian part… Not to mention any critical comment on our current president is met with fury, not laughs.” Holt added: “I know a lot of conservatives who work at Waffle House or Denny’s would like to know where this employee-sponsored health care is! Or how they can afford it working at Walmart selling patriotic goods made overseas!”
