A Classic But Still Applicable…

“Freedom is under attack…under attack by… over-fed, Baby Huey, coward-bitch motherfuckers like Karl Rove and their suck-up coward-weakling apologists like Sean Hannity. To question authority is to be somehow unpatriotic? un-American? and in league with terrorists world-wide? Fuck you!”

Quoth Henry Rollins

This is simply the best YouTube clip I have seen in ages. Enjoy.

Baby Huey

Henry Rollins Clip Transcript:

Freedom is under attack…under attack by hysterical and well-funded Christian psychotics; intellectually undernourished leaders who lie and manipulate information; over-fed, Baby Huey, coward-bitch motherfuckers like Karl Rove and their suck-up coward-weakling apologists like Sean Hannity. To question authority is to be somehow unpatriotic? un-American? and in league with terrorists world-wide? Fuck you!

If they come for your freedom, you must not only resist, you must strike back with a vengeance that will stun them. On this front, if your anger and outrage are not on the forefront, then you’re already dead. Dead to me anyway. Fuck these cowards! these traitors! these enemies of democracy!

With even election results becoming more and more questionable, the Constitution a thing to be manipulated, ignored, and frivolously amended; even democracy itself seems to be on the run. So where’s the one place you can go and tell your version of the truth? rail against liars, fakes, and propagandists with your own unique propaganda, sign your name to it, and let the whole world know how you feel? that’s right. The internet, perhaps responsible for the most substantial shifts in culture in the last several decades. There’s so much freedom and potential on the world wide web, that one is barely able to get their head around it. Who in the right mind would dare to regulate or charge websites to be on the internet? who would dare to rain on a parade so fantastic that many of us would not know what to do without our high-speed connection and our lives on the internet?

Actually, some very powerful forces. Telco companies want to make you pay for your site to be carried on the internet. If you can’t afford to pay, guess what? you’re cyber-history pal. The Bush Administration wants major internet and phone companies to keep track of where their customers surf- all in the name of the War on Terror doncha know?

How much do want to bet they want the internet regulated, contained, and thrown into a cell at Guantanamo Bay? For a country that talks so much about freedom on the march, seems to me that some people want anything but.

If they come for your freedom, you must not only resist, you must strike back with a vengeance that will stun them. On this front, if your anger and outrage are not on the forefront, then you’re already dead. Dead to me anyway. Fuck these cowards! these traitors! these enemies of democracy!

Thanks for watching the show this season.

Never relent.
