System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian Calls For Trump Regime To Resign

After criticising his handling of the George Floyd protests, System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian tells Donald Trump: “Your time has come.”

The ever-political Serj Tankian has been as outspoken as you’d expect following the death of George Floyd and the protests that have sparked all across America, questioning Donald Trump’s handling of the situation and calling for his regime to resign.

Taking to Instagram after seeing the president disappear into his White House bunker over the weekend, the System Of A Down frontman jeered, “Run Donny run into your bunker. You may be the first U.S. president to do so out of fear of your own citizens.”

Describing what a “real leader” would do, Serj continued that they would “address the nation properly and a real man would go face the protestors on the streets in person. But like other corrupt undemocratic leaders in the past, you’ve realized they are not your people as you are not really our President.”

Moving on to address the meaning behind the protests that have taken place – and are still ongoing – in the country, the frontman wrote: “These protests are not just over race but over institutional injustices beginning with the slave era electoral college that put you in power, K Street lobbying firms, superdelegates of a two party duopolistic Neo-liberal corporatocracy whose day has come. You make antifa a terrorist organization but not the KKK?”

Serj then encouraged followers to do their part in taking a stand, concluding: “The lessons of the 2018 peaceful successful revolution in Armenia can be applied in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world. Coordinate online and block every street everywhere and force the regime to resign. The time has come. Your time has come Donald Trump.”

Serj’s post follows Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose tweeting that Trump is a “truly bad, repulsive excuse for a person with a sick agenda”.
