Wake Up!

Wow, how can this be on this blog!! It's a great song, but if you condone the lyrics as a form of political action, I am confused. How can this song be paired w Martin! Don't you know he was about non violent actions? I agree that there is so much fucked up shit going on, especially the Iraq occupation. But does burning and beating really help or change anything? I'm with you all the way on Dead and dissent, but violent protests?

Grateful Dissident does NOT condone violent protests.

I posted the song/video to show how "fucked up shit going on" can compel people to act violently.

I don't think the song or the video promotes violence at all.

They show it exists and suggest it's a predictable result of oppression. -EF Swagee

Point well taken, but don't you think that it makes the violence look kind of rockin and fun?

Also, I do think your blog is awesome.
