Memorial Day weekend sparked a few political comments including Danzig defending Donald Trump’s travel ban. On Sunday (28), Tool headlined the final night at the Boston Calling festival, and frontman Maynard James Keenan shared his thoughts on law enforcement saying:
“As artists, we interpret and report, that’s our job. We are merchants of emotion. We have the privilege to do that because of active and former law enforcement and military defending our right to do so.
Those of you who are law enforcement and military, your job is to defend our right to act like whining, entitled snowflake assholes. Myself being one. Snowflakes, your job is to respect that I’m fucking doing that for you. Divided we fall. Don’t believe the hype dumb-dumbs, we’re all in this together.”
Regardless of anyone’s political beliefs, Keenan does have a point that our freedom wouldn’t be the same without the law enforcement and military protecting us.
A fan who attended the show shared Keenan’s speech on YouTube and you can watch it below:
