System of a Down’s Serj Tankian Instagram post about Donald Trump:
“Run Donny run into your bunker. You may be the first US President to do so out of fear of your own citizens. A real leader 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.
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?
The lessons of the 2018 peaceful successful revolution in Armenia can be applied in the US 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 @realdonaldtrump”

“For those of you peacefully protesting please continue to do. So the only way to institute the moral change we all want is to do so peaceably and with the voices of the masses merging into a single voice that can not be denied. To the famous people lending financial support to Antifa members incarcerated during these looting sprees. This is perhaps your efforts would be better served by helping the thousands of small businesses, these people are destroying .
Then he added:
It’s easy to be sucked in by the narrative, be more substantive. There are people out there who actually think you know something. They don’t and while you hide in your secure compounds and safe places they are on the streets suffering. I pledge to help those small businesses destroyed by these awful riots. I pledge to make my voice heard to seek justice for George Floyd and to help ensure this doesn’t happen again by any means necessary. I also support the tens of thousands of good-intentioned policemen and women nationwide who go to work every day to help keep us safe.”
