System Of A Down Frontman Serj Tankian Says “The Time Has Come” To “Force The Regime To Resign”, Drummer John Dolmayan Defends Donald Trump

System Of A Down have been a politically charged band over the years, but it appears members of the group have had drastically different views in recent times. As protests against systemic racism and police brutality continue across the U.S. in response to the police killing of George Floyd, Serj Tankian has taken to social media to call for “the regime to resign.” However, his bandmate John Dolmayan has controversially defended Donald Trump.

Tankian said the following:

“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“

Meanwhile, Dolmayan has shared a quote in which Trump claims his “admin has done more for the black community than any president since Abraham Lincoln” and he added the following caption:

“Let’s not let the narrative that’s being spun make us forget the truth of this statement. The most attacked president in history yet the greatest friend to minorities! Don’t believe it ? Look at the stats . Don’t like it , doesn’t change the truth of it.”
