System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan has described the idea of defunding the police as the “stupidest thing” he has ever heard.
Dolmayan, who recently called President Donald Trump the “greatest friend to minorities,” made his position on the socio-political issue clear in a lengthy video posted on Instagram.
“I think that the movement to defund police is probably the stupidest thing that I’ve heard,” Dolmayan said, referring to the demand that has emerged after police brutality resulted in the death of George Floyd.
“Any celebrity or politician who is behind the defund the police movement is doing one of two things. One, showing you who they consider the peasant class, how woke they are. [And] how in tune they are with social injustice. In other words, look like they give a sh*t but continue to live lavish well-protected lives while you bang your head on a wall. Two, mainly politicians say anything to maintain their positions because the stupidity of defunding the police hasn’t fully been comprehended by the people advocating for it,” he added.
