Seeking a few more minutes of relevance, shock rocker Marilyn Manson released a video clip -- on election day, of course -- for his new single “Say10” in which he beheads an effigy of Donald Trump.
Speaking to The Daily Beast on election eve, Manson said this about his new video:
“As an artist, my duty is to ask the questions. The viewer must answer them. Either way tomorrow goes, the visuals are meant to create contemplation. Because it’s obviously bigger than just tomorrow. It’s about the desperate acts of people who believe something that is preached by an unbeliever.”
In the short video (below), Manson sits on a throne and tears pages from a Bible — we noticed it wasn’t a Quran because bravery and stuff — before the bloodied corpse is revealed. The Daily Beast reports:
While the bloodied, small-handed corpse certainly resembles Trump, and the act of beheading perhaps a commentary of sorts on the Republican presidential candidate’s attitude toward Islamist extremists, Manson, speaking on the eve of the election, says that the work is open to varying interpretations.
Manson added, “Right now we’re in such a state of confusion when it comes to religion, politics, sexuality, and how they all tie together, and it’s being turned into a circus and a sideshow—and that’s something that I’ve been described as a ringleader of. It seems like a time for me as an artist, and as an American artist, to make something that causes a new set of questions to arise that aren’t simply statements.”
In a previous interview, Manson told The Daily Beast that he was sitting out this election because the choice is between “cat sh*t and dog sh*t.” Kind of like choosing between which albums of his to listen to.

The Freedom Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Therefore we do not endorse political candidates either in primary or general elections. However, as defenders of America’s social contract, we insist that the rules laid down by both parties at the outset of campaigns be respected, and that the results be decided by free elections. We will oppose any attempt to rig the system and deny voters of either party their constitutional right to elect candidates of their choice.
