Ministry’s Al Jourgensen Exposes The Election Scam In US: ‘I’m Disgusted’

In a recent discussion with Heavy Consequence, Al Jourgensen of Ministry vocalized his disillusionment with the US electoral system, asserting the overpowering influence of wealth on political outcomes.

The vocalist criticized the current state of US politics, arguing:

“I mean, it really doesn’t matter who’s president. Even if Trump were to win, and he’s a loose cannon and senile, the people with the money that basically have bought the entire Congress, Senate, and presidency, for that matter — the super PACs, the lobbyists, all this — if there’s no money in it, they’re not gonna allow a nuclear war if there’s no money in it.”

Voting Intentions And Political Horrors

He continued, expressing particular disdain for Donald Trump and his MAGA supporters:

“Obviously, you know where I’m gonna go and vote this election. I’m completely horrified by Donald Trump and his MAGA followers. Disgusted, I think, is a better word. Frustrated, but does it really make that much of a difference? Like I said, it depends. If there’s money in it for the people that have bought all these politicians, they’ll make sure that as long as they’re making money, that’s all that matters.”

Diverse Voices In Music On Political Leadership

Jourgensen’s statements echo a broader discontent among musicians regarding the political climate. Last month, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready expressed dread at the prospect of a Trump reelection, emphasizing the need for unity, compassion, and environmental stewardship over division and ignorance. The musician stated:

“Oh god. Well, if Trump got elected, that’d be the worst thing in the world to me. I’d rather think about the best things that can happen. We have to come together. We have to be compassionate. We have to take care of the environment. We have to not be racist. We have to not be idiots. There’s all these things we can do. But we have to choose to think that way.”

Meanwhile, John Lydon of the Sex Pistols has publicly supported Trump. In a chat with the Financial Times, Lydon commended Trump for not starting wars, lowering unemployment, and providing economic opportunities during his presidency. Despite Trump’s contentious reputation, Lydon highlighted these aspects as reasons for his support.
