Phil Anselmo Screams Racist Slogan and Gives Nazi Salute at Dimebash 2016 [Video]
I'm not sure what's been happening with Phil Anselmo over the years. It seemed like he would be a cool dude to hang with during the Pantera years. They partied hard, and played some amazing music.
Then Phil left the band, and things went sideways with him.
This weekend was very busy for a lot of musicians, with a lot of tribute shows, to Randy Rhodes, Dime, and more...but some things from the Dimebash are disturbing the hell out of a lot of people.
The small one, is Phil's not-so-great performance of "Ace of Spades" with Dave Grohl, Robert Trujillo, and more. (See below) He sounds horrible, and has kind of become a caricature of himself.
The worst one has surfaced from Friday's show, where at the end of the night, Phil gave a Nazi salute, and screamed out "White Power" to the crowd! HOLY S***, PHIL, WTF ARE YOU DOING?
People who have seen this are kind of losing their minds that this metal icon is coming across as a racist!
What's going on with the guy? Inside jokes stay inside for a reason, Phil:
BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE KNOWS WTF IS BEHIND THE JOKE AND WON'T FIND IT FUNNY.
Do I think people are getting kind of pansy with the whole "safe space" BS? Yes.
Do I think yelling "White Power" at a crowd is racist? Why yes, Phil, yes I do.
