LF & The Dead Kennedys

From a reader:

Well actually, I guess Jello Biafra spotted the Liberal-Facism  connection long ago.  Consider the lyrics to 1980′s California Uber Alles:

“California Uber Alles”

I am Governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles
And never frowns
Soon I will be president…

Carter Power will soon go away
I will be Fuhrer one day
I will command all of you
Your kids will meditate in school
Your kids will meditate in school!

[Chorus:]
California Uber Alles
California Uber Alles
Uber Alles California
Uber Alles California

Zen fascists will control you
100% natural
You will jog for the master race
And always wear the happy face

Close your eyes, can’t happen here
Big Bro’ on white horse is near
The hippies won’t come back you say
Mellow out or you will pay
Mellow out or you will pay!

[Chorus]

Now it is 1984
Knock-knock at your front door
It’s the suede/denim secret police
They have come for your uncool niece

Come quietly to the camp
You’d look nice as a drawstring lamp
Don’t you worry, it’s only a shower
For your clothes here’s a pretty flower.

DIE on organic poison gas
Serpent’s egg’s already hatched
You will croak, you little clown
When you mess with President Brown
When you mess with President Brown

Me: I actually hung out with Biafra quite a bit when I was part of this thing called the Spitfire Tour. Truth be told, I did not like or respect him very much. But maybe I should re-evaluate my position?

Eh. Naw.
