Published Feb 06, 2019Arkansas Senator and hardcore Republican Jason Rapert is not too happy with beloved sludge metal band Eyehategod after a show poster depicted him eating a baby. In fact, the politician has called for the venue that booked the show to be boycotted.
Taking to his Facebook page, Rapert shared the following statement:
Boycott Vinos in Little Rock... Friends, I rarely share with you the hateful posts and pictures that extreme liberals make about me to torment my stand for better moral values. But this time I want you to see what they have done. They use my image on an event without my permission and they depict me 'biting a baby' in my mouth. A wicked and evil depiction on an event entitled 'Eyehategod'. I call on Vinos in Little Rock to cancel this event and apologize for such a disrespectful image that shows the dehumanization of babies lives. It is disrespectful of all who value babies lives and people of faith. They also clearly welcome the Satanic Temple in another post I am sharing. I urge you NOT to frequent Vinos and stand against their hateful rhetoric.
Rapert's political views include being against abortion and gay marriage. Late last year, he came under fire for a long history of anti-Muslim remarks.
