SJWs force The Cult to apologize for saying “ALL Lives Matter" at Ottawa Bluesfest

Do you remember the band The Cult? They were huge in the 80s, a big part of the soundtrack of my youth. They had come through the punk movement and embraced a resurgence of hard rock.

They were badass musicians with hard licks and catchy lyrics. In a time when rockers were on the way out, they came out roaring with songs like She Sells Sanctuary, Love Removal Machine.

With their style and outlook they bridged the gap between punk and hard rock drawing a crowd that was at once alternative and rocking, setting the stage for many bands to come.

Now they are old, fat and scared of social justice warriors on Twitter.

During a show on Saturday night in Ottawa, Ian Astbury the lead singer of The Cult called out that All Lives Matter.

In saying All Lives Matter just days after the terror attack in Dallas that killed five police officers and wounded several more, Astbury was saying he was with the police officers but also with Alton Sterling – a black man shot and killed by police in Louisiana last week and with Philandro Castille a black man shot four times by police in Minnesota.

But to the social justice warriors of Twitter, that was just too much.

Watch as I show how he was attacked and eventually caved in and apologized and how even then, the apology wasn’t enough for the SJW’s.

We have to stop giving in to these fake controversies created by people on Twitter with nothing better to do than complain, add an ism to their complaint and force people that have done nothing wrong to apologize.

It’s time to say NO to the shake down artists.

I think black lives matter but I also think white lives matter, that Asian lives matter, that hispanic lives matter and yes, even police lives matter.

Bottom line is All Lives Matter. It’s not racist to say that, I’m not going to stop and neither should you.

AllLivesMatter … NOT!!
I certainly wouldn’t like to see Murderers like Vincent Lee, Paul Bernardo, Robert Picton or ISIS twats lives included in this.
No wonder he apologized. He forgot to leave out the murderers.

SJ Weenies, not warriors.lol

I agree with you Dave. SJW should stand for Social Justice Weenies! They don’t deserve a strong name to represent their agenda of destruction.

Destroys cult membership. Looks for new cult to follow.

If all lives matter upsets you, then your life doesn’t matter.

Nah. A thug’s life has no value to society. A police officer’s life has much value to society, that’s why we pay them. Some one who marches through the streets “chanting death to cops” has decidedly negative value to society. When a police officer protects themselves, they’re protecting a social investment. Comply and you won’t get hurt. It’s always been that way and it’s impossible to change that, which leaves the so called demands of BoweL Movement nonexistent.

These people should get a life. ALL lives MATTER.

Stating All Lives Matter is important. In fact, it’s imperative! Why? Because when you don’t, society, including judges, find it easy to stomp on those that suddenly don’t matter, under other phrases, such as Black Lives Matter. Another one is the Lefty favourite – judge a society by how it treats the most vulnerable. No, by how it treats all citizens is the correct phrase. It’s this phrase, that has caused judges to routinely hand out sole custody to women, who are deemed more vulnerable than men (to what exactly I’m not sure – common cold? disease? bad hair days?), when in fact, sole custody is against the law in Canada, and they well know it. And look at the rights being stomped on, the havoc that it wreaks, the cost to society on so many levels. Language is important, and All Lives Matter!!

It’s getting so easy these days to tell right from wrong. Anything that pisses off any particular group of lefties is always a good thing.

I agree with DAN MANCUSO"S post, including in the womb.

And PETER N.: I don’t think the SJWs will ever understand the black and white of it. Great post Peter, a simple in your face statement. How could they possibly “unexplain” your statement??

DJBT and the rest

All lives matter. Well, sort of. There are exceptions, such as ISIS, terrorists, slavers (yes, they still exist), murderers, hate mongers, criminal gangs, thugs, drive-by shooters, rapists, child molesters, and those who mean me harm. Other than these, all lives matter, regardless of colour. And I have no intention of giving an apology to anyone for believing this.

My policy has always been to simply avoid social media like Facebook and Twitter. I guess I’m lucky I have that ability
commented 2016-07-11 19:57:37 -0400
Odd how saying all lives matter is racist, but saying black lives matter (which implies that all other lives do not matter) is not considered racist.

What a screwed up bunch of people the SJWs are.

It is obvious that saying “All Lives Matter” is the only phrase that is not racist as it includes everyone.

So the cult were just FAKE tuff guys all the time , and here you guys thought they were tough " rockers ". Too funny

I wonder if the s j w could make the the hells angels recant ?

Anyone who would apologize to SJWs has no principles, no soul and no balls.
commented 2016-07-11 17:26:36 -0400
And I’m not now, nor am I ever apologizing for being born white either! That should really cause spontaneous fainting among those that are mentally touched.
commented 2016-07-11 17:10:57 -0400
I have no interest in or respect for “The Cult”. (I like music.) But I now condemn them for their cowardice and stupidity. The apology was not only moronic, it was morally reprehensible.
commented 2016-07-11 17:09:19 -0400
Deb Graupner is correct and old MONGREL beat me to the punch again. In fact the SJWs should maybe get a life. Then we could discuss if their lives matter. Truly a SICK bunch.

DJBT et al

Am I the only one that sees this apology as subtle sarcasm?
commented 2016-07-11 16:29:32 -0400
It is true that The Cult is wrong in saying ‘All Lives Matter’, because S.J.W. lives don’t matter in the least.
commented 2016-07-11 16:06:44 -0400
You can add the cult to the list of boot licking apologists I don’t support…
commented 2016-07-11 15:58:56 -0400
Why do people keep apologizing for speaking the truth? Why bother saying anything if you are going to go to the SJW level, and take back what you say for some faux offense, that some little baby can’t handle. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Otherwise you look cowardly for apologizing for something that you didn’t say wrong. If I’m not sorry, I’m not apologizing, no matter how many immature adult babies are brought to their breaking point, because someone said something they don’t like. We need to start giving psych assessments to these over grown babies that really do need to grow up!
