MINISTRY'S AL JOURGENSEN DECONSTRUCTS THE SONG "ANTIFA"


AL JOURGENSEN "I do believe that people should stand up for themselves and not be party to this bullshit we've being fed...I think Antifa is a state of mind, it's like, 'we're not going to take this shit anymore, because we've been sold a bad bill of goods here by you people'...I relish the attitude of Antifa...I think that some of the tactics they take actually hurt the cause or the thought process more than it helps, but I do enjoy the "
enough!" aspect of it, and that's what this song is about."
-- Al Jourgensen
