SYSTEM OF A DOWN’s JOHN DOLMAYAN: COVID-19 ‘Is And Has Always Been About Money’

John Dolmayan

SYSTEM OF A DOWN drummer John Dolmmayan, who was previously critical of vaccine mandates, saying they were akin to “self-imposed tyranny and mental slavery,” took to his Instagram to share a Pokémon COVID-19 meme, and he included the following message: “And just like that covid will slowly go away. This is and has always been about money , covid was about money , Ukraine is about money. Resources equal wealth , stability , and power. Theres a game of chess being played by those in the real positions of power and we’d like to think we’re the pawns but the truth is we’re not even on the board.”

When one of John‘s followers countered that “if it was about money then shops would have stayed open. small business went bankrupt because of covid, it was never about money it was about saving lives,” John responded: “do you have any idea how much money Amazon made during Covid? Not to mention pharmaceutical companies ? Of course it’s about money.”

During presidential election in 2020, Dolmayan repeatedly defended Donald Trump, saying that the opponents of America’s 45th president “perpetuated and instigated a total shutdown of the economy” in the hopes that it would crash and that he would be blamed. Dolmayan also praised Trump and accused Democrats of “demonizing” the former president and “blaming him for everything under the sun.”

In addition, John called Democrats “the true bigots” who “fought to maintain slavery” and were “directly responsible for 70 plus million abortions, a large majority of whom were black.” Dolmayan also supported Trump‘s claim that his administration had done more for the African-American community “than any president since Abraham Lincoln.”
