Glenn Danzig Reveals Stance on Planned Parenthood and President Trump’s Travel Ban
Glenn Danzig is one of those artists that's not afraid to ruffle some feathers or give his opinion on an issue. In an interview with the L.A. Times he talked politics, and what side of the political spectrum he's on.
“I might be conservative on some issues, and some issues I’m really liberal,” Danzig says. “I’m pro-abortion and I’m pro-Planned Parenthood. But I don’t think Planned Parenthood should be selling baby parts like a chop shop in Brooklyn, OK?” Danzig is referring to a series of controversial undercover videos that emerged in 2015.
He also addressed President Trump's travel ban that has been halted by the courts so far. “It’s really not a travel ban,” Danzig argues. “When you walk into the country, we want to see who you are and what you’re doing. Well, when I go to every country right now, they look at me and they see whether I can come in or not. And I’ve been turned away from Canada and other places before. Where’s my protest? Where’s my parade?”
Danzig's inaugural Blackest of the Black festival took place over the weekend in Silverado, Calif. Check out the link to Loudwire's exclusive coverage of the event below. His latest album Black Laden Crown was just released, with Loudwire describing it as "the darkest, dirge-filled Danzig work in years."
