Elvis Presleys Death Throne: "Well to be fair, he seems to upset that the lyrics are suggesting killing family members of people."Thats what I was about to say. Even if he didn't explicitly mention "Yankees" in that song, since the title was "Dear American" I really think it's pretty clear who it was directed at.I'm just trying to imagine what would happen if Psy Ted Nugent were the one to sing this.
Elvis Presleys Death Throne: GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve: Elvis Presleys Death Throne: Not only is Tommy not amused, the crowd seems to be wondering who he is, and I'm definitely not amused by him at all." During a concert, Psy admonished the Iraqi kidnappers..., and also sang along to lyrics of the song "Dear American" by South Korean rock band, which criticizes the United States military for its actions in the Iraq war. An initial translation of the lyrics was posted by an iReporter unto CNN'ssite.Some of the lyrics, referring to the guards who tortured Iraqi prisoners, were inaccurately translated by CNN as follows: "Kill those farking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives and those who ordered them to torture," and "Kill [the Yankees'] daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers / Kill them all slowly and painfully." It was later revealed that the actual Korean lyrics did not include the word "Yankee" or any other referring specifically to Americans.Only in America could a foreigner call for the killing of veterans and their family members and still have records sell out. And as far as not actually saying the word Yankee, he'd just finished singing "Dear American" and was talking about prisoner abuse. I think it was pretty damn clear who this was directed at.So basically he's not a fan of people who torture people?[2.bp.blogspot.com image 379x214]'m+ok+with+this.jpgI'm not okay with torture either, calling for their "daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers / Kill them all slowly and painfully. " is going just a littlebeyond opposing torture. Especially seeing as the Abu Ghraib prisoners suffered no major physical injury, let alone death.It's almost like Psy had a deep and personal hatred for Americans.But not too deep for him to take our dollars.And sadly, there's Americans foolish enough to give them to him.
