Napalm Death’s Barney Greenway: Mike Pence is Scarier Than Donald Trump – Podcast Preview
Loudwire Podcast #9 is coming your way Dec. 1! For this episode, we sat down with Napalm Death vocalist Barney Greenway to speak about Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 presidential election.
Barney Greenway is one of the most outspoken metal musicians on earth. As a fierce humanitarian and anti-fascist, Barney is extremely worried about Trump enacting some of the policies he proposed on the campaign trail. However, Greenway sees Vice President-elect Mike Pence as an even bigger threat to human rights.
“If people like Mike Pence get a real stronghold on the power base, it’s going to need people to fight for human rights,” Barney said. “Control over your own body in the case of women, same-sex marriage as well being a matter of will as what anybody can do what they wish to do and not be persecuted for the love choices they make for the rest of their life.”
Greenway also dismissed Pence’s creationist beliefs. “You’re going against hundreds of years of science and research, and you’re going to teach this to kids that are coming up through schools? You’re going to have a nation of dummies. I’m really sorry to use that [term], but I’m illustrating the point.”
