System Of A Down drummer John Dolmayan shared a statement on his Instagram account and responded to the fans who wanted him to be fired from the band.

As you might remember, two days ago, System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian shared the news of an event he was attending via his official Instagram account. However, instead of reacting to the event, the fans wrote many comments about John Dolmayan and they wanted him to be fired from the band.

The fans’ reaction against John was mostly about the fact that he had been publicly supporting the statements of Donald Trump. Last week, he also responded to those reactions via his official Instagram account and thanked those who supported or denounced his ideas. However, John’s approach didn’t soothe the anger of the fans.

Recently, Dolmayan broke his silence about the fans who wanted him gone from the band and wrote a statement about his right of ‘free speech‘ via his official Instagram account. On the post he shared, there was a sign saying:

“I disagree with my opponents’ positions but support their right to express them freely!”

Furthermore, on the caption of his post, John stated:

The reason I post my opinions on this forum and open myself up to attack and ridicule is for you, the silent ones who think they are alone in a world where their thoughts are alien or wrong. You’re not alone, millions are with you. For those of you who think you are coming from a morally superior position therefore any differing opinion or viewpoint is invalid think again.

It’s the easy path to think like you, it’s in their best self-interests for celebrities and politicians to support you but you will lose in the end because you are the very thing you pretend to fight against. The true fascist, the true bigots hidden in plain sight from the same party who fought to maintain slavery, Jim Crow, non-voting rights for women, and who are directly responsible for 70 plus million abortions, a large majority of whom were black. You don’t want free speech, you can’t handle free speech because you are cowards and need to be herded along with the rest of the sheep.

I’m lucky, I’m in an industry where you CAN be honest about your views wherever they fall with little to no repercussions. I don’t rely on a movie studio, label, media, or anyone else who will bow down to pandering political correctness and am in no danger whatsoever of “ losing my job” because you don’t like what I have to say. This is a dangerous time where free thought and speech are under attack but it will pass, the next generation is watching as they always do and they will overcome your insanity.

Additionally, John celebrated the birthday of the 45th President of America, Donald Trump:

Oh, happy birthday President Trump and good luck in November!
