Phil Anselmo Discusses The Fallout From His Infamous “White Power” Incident At 2016 Dimebash

During a new interview with Kerrang!, Phil Anselmo (Pantera, etc.) once again commented on his infamous “white power” chant and Nazi salute at the 2016 Dimebash. The singer is still facing some backlash from the racist outburst, which recently resulted in the cancellation of Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals’ New Zealand shows earlier this year.

Anselmo said the following about the incident:

“I feel like it’s ridiculous. I made an off-color joke and ‘Boom!’ – it’s like I’m literally Hitler! I’m not. I take each individual one at a time, in the way that any logical individual will. I have love in my heart. Over the years I’ve learned to take the first step with love and to put good faith first. I get along with everybody. If there’s any doubt about my political leanings, people should get it out of their heads.

I was raised amongst a dazzling [cast of characters] from the theatre, from the mental hospital, from all walks of life – all colors, creeds and kinds. It’s absurd to me that anyone in this day and age would judge anyone by the color of their skin, their heritage or their religion. I’m a harmless guy. I’m a reactionary, not a troublemaker.”

He also added the following when asked if he would trade success for anonymity:

“I’m a realist. What has happened has happened. What is going to happen is going to happen. What am I supposed to do about it? Am I supposed to re-live shit, or rewind time? Erase people’s memories? If you stack what I’ve done up against all the horrible things that have been done on this earth, I’d hope that I’d come pretty low on the list. I don’t have a racist bone in my body. My heroes are everybody.”
