The Lyrics

After watching the vandals burning the limousine and breaking windows of companies who had supported Hillary Clinton, I realized that these people are not fighting for a cause, but "just because". I hope the CIA or FBI can find a trail leading back to George Soros and revoke his citizenship, to take effect after serving a lengthy term in a certain Federal facility just a few miles up the road from where I live.
He stands in line with a cardboard sign
He fights with slogans and with tears
He's not yet seventeen and he's over sixty-four
He's been marching since the Nixon years

He's a Marxist, a butthead, a socialist, a pain
A leftist and a mercenary, too
And he loves to spout his swill
While George Soros foots the bill
Doesn't care if a single word is true

He's fighting for abortion rights
He's fighting for gays
He tramples on the courthouse lawn
He's fighting for transsexuals, and should he get his way
All the ones he's fighting for will soon be gone

Yes, he fights against "plutocracy"
He's fighting for "The Cause"
He says it's for the good of all
While he shouts some words obscene
By the burning limousine
Then he goes and sprays graffiti on the wall

But without him a pedestrian could safely cross the street
A motorist could go his merry way
He's the one who blocks the sidewalk
With his childish little stunts
And we wish he'd get the hell out of our way

He's the clueless demonstrator and he's really not to blame
His funding comes from foreign, distant shores
He travels here and there, from sea to sea
And he's too blind to see
That we wish he'd go away forever more
This is another one of the songs for which the printed words are not in agreement, especially the line about "How could Hitler have condemned "him" at Dachau" (or "Labau", whatever that is, in some versions. I believe the correct version is "How could Hitler have condemned "them" at Dachau", meaning Hitler needed foot soldiers to carry out his genocidal plans.

Another good one- 555! Regarding your bottom comments, I am perplexed too. Factually, when Dachau was liberated in April 1945, US troops killed all the SS guards, the Hungarian and German Waffen SS sent to facilitate the surrender from the front, and innocent Heer troops in the hospital suffering from war wounds. This massacre is generally forgotten. But your avg German soldier and even many in the Waffen SS knew very little about actual camp activities. Like the avg German civilians, ALL Germans troops in the Western Sectors were forced to watch films of the camps for De-Nazification. Those close to camps had to tour them and in some cases were forced to bury the dead. I strongly disagree that everyone who wore a German uniform with Hakenkreuz was a Nazi and complicit in the Holocaust. There were attempts on Hitler's life, resistance in Germany for free press and opposition, and Germans who saved Jewish lives. Goering's own brother Albert helped save Jewish lives. And Hitler had almost 250,000 Jews in the armed forces and normal factories (non-SS). It's hard to divide nationalism/patriotism from intermixed war crimes leading up to genocide. Many of those that joined the Waffen SS went for the uniform, the elite not knowing apart from the front what was happening back home or in the greater Reich. And even the Waffen SS were appalled by the Dirlenwanger Brigade.

All protestors and all protests are childish, violent, and leftist, funded and manipulated by a hostile foreign conspiracy led by George Soros, who should be jailed. Nostalgic. McWilliams and McCarthy are conjoined at the butt.

Sorry about the protest against lead in Flint's water making it hard for you to cross the street. Here, let me help you.
Patrick - January 24, 2017 - Report this comment
The people of Flint, Michigan have a specific grievance to which they must draw attention.Protesting this is appropriate. But blocking sidewalks and breaking windows will not draw sympathy for their cause, nor clean up the water. Violence, especially against people who did not cause the problem, is counterproductive. The subject of my song is the paid protester who has no idea of the cause he is marching for, and doesn't care. I can't think of anyone's grievance that would justify in my mind someone burning my car. Rob, do you know of any camp or town named Labau?
Rob Arndt - January 24, 2017 - Report this comment
Liebau, not Labau, was German for the Polish town of Lubawka. Lubawka was the site of a training area for the Hitler Youth. There was also a labor camp nearby. Maybe that is the reference?

Objecting to violence is like endorsing mother's milk. Your subject was the "paid protester"? That claim is usually as phony as "outside agitators." How many protesters in Ferguson do you think were paid? How much violence did you see in Saturday's Women's March? The debunking of such conspiracy claims is readily available, e.g., Snopes.

Confirming what many had suspected when viewing the sudden and intense collapse into anrchy that occurred in Charlotte this week, Todd Walther, spokesman for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Fraternal Order of Police told CNN's Erin Burnett: "This is not Charlotte that's out here. These are outside entities that are coming in and causing these problems. These are not protestors, these are criminals." "We've got the instigators that are coming in from the outside. They were coming in on buses from out of state. If you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made last night. I can about say probably 70% of those had out-of-state IDs. They're not coming from Charlotte."

DKTOS. Don't get what all the constant protesting can accomplish really, we went through the process and the result is the result. That can't change. 5's

^ What the hell is he talking about?
Patrick - January 24, 2017 - Report this comment
Rob, I have seen that explanation. I suppose if "he" was not there, Hitler could not condemn "him". But Hitler did not condemn the Hitler Youth, at least not in those terms. The concept of the song is that leaders cannot lead without followers. Hitler could not have condemned "them" (the inmates of Dachau) without an army of individuals to carry out his orders. I think it was clear at the time that many of the protesters at Ferguson were bused in from out of town. And how does burning and looting a convenience story and beauty salon express one's grievance against an allegedly racist and trigger-happy police department? The women's march in Kansas City was peaceful, and as far as I know, did not include any obscenity-shouting "celebrities". They gathered in a pre-approved park and did not block the streets. That is how protests should go down. I'm not sure how women in Kansas City are "oppressed" or what they are afraid Trump might do in the future, but they did not march down Main Street and break windows. That would not have gained them any sympathy for their cause or served as a good example to their children.

I mean the people protesting that Trump is president, we went through the election process

When you're a middle-age white guy who has spent his life in a solidly right-wing, white Kansas community, and has never traveled on an airplane, you have no feeling at all about the black experience, past and current. A people living with the history and resultant psychology that is the burden of blacks cannot be judged by white norms and logic. That is the unfortunate reality. Burning and looting is the white trope that stands in for negro. It's exactly the same kind of erroneous, internalized metaphor that causes Trump to equate inner cities with the whole panoply of alleged dysfunction. Remember this: Blacks got their civil rights through peaceful protest a la Gandhi. That is historically remarkable. Now it's your burden to imagine yourself walking in the shoes of a black man, and show some constructive empathy.

Thank you for your remarks, Larry, but my comment re Kansas, etc., was directed at Patrick. I apologize for not making that clear.
Larry Hensley - January 24, 2017 - Report this comment
Ok, sorry. Assumed since you had commented before that it was referring to my comment. Since it's irrelevant to your comment I'll have it removed.

Stop making excuses and pull yourself up by your bootstraps. Isn't it sad that Black people can march in huge numbers to protest and commit crimes post-election, but we're too lazy on election night to vote in bigger numbers that Obama requested?

Wyandotte County, Kansas, where I was born and raised, and where I still live, is about 1/3 White, 1/3 Black, and 1/3 Hispanic, mostly Mexican. The White population has been declining, while the proportion of Hispanics increases. Black people have always been part of my landscape. We tend to think of ourselves as a community, rather than as separate "races". Most people around here are too busy to take part in demonstrations, and when they do, it's more likely to involve taxes or other economic issues. We can speak directly to the mayor and police chief if we want to. I may not have an internal understanding of "the Black man", but I know and get along fine with Black men and women and Hispanic men and women. I even manage to convince them that I can speak Spanish. Kansas City, Missouri, just across the bridge, has more grievances and places for the much larger population to demonstrate. The police escort them and keep order Last rioting was in 1968. A gay friend who moved back here after living for 20 some years in Dallas said that Kansas City was one of the friendliest and accepting places he had lived in. That goes for both sides of State Line Road. Note too: Wyandotte County is predominantly Democrat, to the point of being a one-party community. I have never seen a Republican on a local election ballot. Likewise, the women I saw marching on TV were nearly all White.

As were all the rioters I saw after the inauguration.

The current racial breakdown for Wyandotte County, Kansas is 54% White, 26% Hispanic, and 25% Black. In 1970, probably around the time you were born, the figures were 79%, 3%, and 11%, respectively. But even this does not take into account neighborhood segregation (ghettos), which had a great influence on the local separation of races in housing and public schools where I grew up.

Did you live in Wyandotte County at one time? I've heard Mayor/CEO Mark Holland use the 1/3 split at a recent community forum. For the record, I was born in 1953. By 1970 I was on the brink of graduating from Bishop Ward High School. Racial tensions were high at the time and there were a lot of places that were or at least were perceived to be unsafe. The riots on the Missouri side were fresh in everyone's memory. The KCK government and the School Board acted quickly to defuse some of the anger over the assassination of Dr King. There was a curfew, during which I remember playing in the middle of normally-busy 18th Street. After years of decline, the murder rate has begun to climb again. Two police officers were killed in 2016 and there was a triple homicide by an illegal immigrant who killed another man near St Louis, Missouri before being captured. I don't have a lot of places to compare my hometown to, but I don't generally feel unsafe anywhere in the city. Being a veteran of "The Dotte" transcends so-called racial divisions. The original settlers of the county were a mixed group of Huron, English, German, and Black people. One of the Chiefs of the Wyanodot Nation still lives in KCK and the tribe operates a casino in downtown, next to the historic Huron Cemetery on 7th Street.
