"It’s your life, you do what you want. Cannibal Corpse has never been about politics, and we all obviously have our own opinions, y’know, each person in the band. I’m not gonna condemn somebody for not standing or standing. If you take a side you take a side and then somebody’s gonna be against you and it’s not worth it to me, y’know?
I mean, I would stand, if it was me; I don’t have a problem with people standing and linking arms. There’s obviously problems in this country and I think that was the original reason for all of this stuff happening. And so, how can anybody be against people wanting everybody coming together and treating everybody the same and fairly and equally? I’m all for that. So if you can listen to what people are saying and say “we’re not disrespecting the flag and our country and we love our country, we’re just trying to make people start talking about this stuff and do something about it” I don’t have a problem with that at all. A lot of different protests and how people handle it, it’s their way. It’s not my place to tell them “You’re wrong! You’re an asshole!” You know? Sure, I have opinions on who I think is wrong and who I think is right in certain things, but on this issue I think we should all just sit back and say “Look man, if you know why people are doin’ it, you don’t have to agree with it, but that’s what this country is all about.”
