System of a Down’s Serj Tankian on ‘Polarized’ Political Differences With Bandmate John Dolmayan
Over the past month, System of a Down's bandmates, Serj Tankian and John Dolmayan, have been completely at odds over what ... well, almost everything that has to do with politics, protests and Trump.
However, in a new Instagram post (which was the first choice for both), Tankian reaffirmed the duo's close relationship, regardless of their respective policies.

John Dolmayan of the System of a Down calls Democrats "True Fascists", "True Bigots".
“My drummer and brother-in-law @johndolmayan_, whom I love and respect despite our extremely polarized political comments and differences, has always been my loyal ally in efforts to recognize the Armenian genocide within Soad. The level of online hatred and stupidity against him and me cannot be justified: social media has created a faulty digital society that partly lives from this reality, ”said Tankian.
"Remember, regardless of the stance, that only artists who are really interested and passionate take the risk of alienating their basis for what they believe to be the truth," he continued.
The back and forth began earlier this month when Tankian criticized President Donald Trump for allegedly running into a bunker while the protests against George Floyd were outside the White House.
"Run, Donny, run into your bunker. You could be the first US president to do this for fear of your own citizens, ”said Tankian at the time. "A real leader would address the nation properly and a real man would face the demonstrators personally on the streets."
In the meantime, Dolmayan thought otherwise.
"Let's not let the story that is being shot forget the truth of this statement," Dolmayam signed a photo of the 45th president on Instagram. "The most attacked president of history and yet the greatest friend of the minorities! Do not you believe it? Look at the statistics. Doesn't like it, doesn't change the truth. "
