Anti-Flag bassist Chris #2, real name Chris Barker, spoke with Time Off magazine about America buying into the Bush administration’s politics of fear. “It’s unfortunate, but in America we live in a country full of misinformed people and the reason they’re misinformed is because they watch network news every day,” Chris #2 explained. “And that makes them afraid. And once they’re afraid they can’t help but continue to watch and have that cycle of fear over and over. We, as a band, are trying to break out of that.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
