OTEP teilen im neuen Video aus

In ihrem neuem Album „Kult 45“ nehmen sich OTEP eher weniger zurück und greifen das aktuelle Regime scharf an. Im frisch erschienen Video zur Single „Shelter In Place“ ist die NRA und ihre positive Haltung zum Waffenbesitz im Fadenkreuz.

Otep Shamaya findet klare Worte:  “The video for “Shelter In Place” challenges the NRA’s irrational claim that “only a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun”. It aims the blame of mass murders of our children in school shootings directly on the NRA, not necessarily its members, but the administration who continue to fight for people on Terrorist Watch Lists to own a gun. Why? It’s my belief the more murders that occur, the more money they make from weapons manufacturers and increases in membership which strengthens their ability to be a political power that continues to frighten the Republican owned Congress.

The number of mass murders of children in schools by gun violence is our national shame yet the Republican owned Congress (and shills for the NRA) have done nothing, not a single thing, to protect our kids. In contrast, when ONE man attempted to detonate a shoe bomb on board a plane in flight, legislation was enacted to protect people from this SINGLE attempt of failed terrorism. Now all of us have to remove our shoes before boarding a flight. All of us have to be searched and x-rayed.

Enough is enough. Our children deserve better. And their safety and the safety of their teachers are worth fighting for.”
