Throughout the course of the election, both the primary and the general, it appeared that every liberal Metal publication out there was promoting Corey Taylor’s anti-Trump position, much of it revolving around his blatant lie that Trump and his supporters were racists, something akin to members of the Third Reich.
Corey Taylor’s insistence on racial politics, aka we all are the same (which of course is nonsense, as we are all different) regardless of color, brought out some of his most entertaining nonsensical idiotic posts. Like this doozy.
“I will say this. This is a bigger problem than what happened that night. Slipknot has dedicated itself to bringing people together, to fighting racism, to fighting hate in general since the day we were started. I don’t have time for people who judge other people by the colour of their skin. If that in itself offends some of my fans, then I’m sorry, you’re wrong. I don’t ever want our fans to feel like we’re judging them because of colour, religion, culture, upbringing, etc. We welcome everyone, we always have and we always will.”
Or this one, where he directly contradicts the previous one.
“I know there is a problem in metal, and it all comes down to, at least in America, where you grow up and what that culture is passed on from: parents, family members, friends, adults. It’s a generational thing. I thought we were close to phasing it out, but unfortunately I was proven wrong.”
Since he’s so adamant about racial diversity, I figured I would check the diversity of his band to see if Corey practices what he preaches. Mmm hmm…
