Published May 02, 2011Winnipeg, MB-based political punk rock institution Propagandhi are bringing the sounds of their Supporting Caste album to Australia for a run of shows later this month. However, being outspoken about civil, gay and animal rights, among many other causes, the group have drawn the ire of Australia's neo-Nazi community.
Punknews points out that Australian neo-Nazis took to the nationalist website Stormfront to organize anti-Propagandhi rallies. Here's an example of the highly offensive rhetoric being spread about the trip:
We should get as many people as possible to do an anti demonstration, buy tickets and jeer amongst the crowd, fight for them to want to never return here. It's bad enough we have to tolerate boat loads of illegal aliens leeching off us let alone music being allowed to tour here ridiculing us and supporting homosexuality. Yes , seems they are going to be in every major town. If they got a "frown" (a frown eye stance to their pro-brown eye stance) from nationalists in each place they went I am sure they'd remember about that memorable tour they had to our nation. These homos are from Canada and it figures... they come up with this sort of rubbish since Canada is up there with the most politically correct nations in the book!
Propagandhi have not yet responded to these online threats, and their tour Down Under is scheduled to run from May 18 to May 29. More information on the shows is available here.
