Glenn Danzig has seemingly defended President Trump's efforts to limit travel to the United States from six predominantly Muslim nations, saying that it's "really not a travel ban."
Trump's revised executive order, which was signed in March but never got off the ground because federal courts blocked it just hours before it was set to go into effect, would have banned people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen from entering the U.S. for ninety days and all refugees for one hundred and twenty days.
Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Danzig stated about Trump's travel ban: "It's really not a travel ban. 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," he continued. "And I've been turned away from Canada and other places before.
"Where's my protest? Where's my parade?"
While claiming he did not identify as a Trump supporter, Danzig also revealed that he was pro-choice. "I might be conservative on some issues, and some issues I'm really liberal," he said. "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, okay?"
Danzig was seemingly referring to accusations by conservatives that Planned Parenthood was trafficking in fetal tissue for profit in violation of federal law. Planned Parenthood leaders have consistently said they were only collecting a reimbursement for their tissue donation services and not benefiting, and multiple state investigations have failed to find evidence that the group violated any laws.
Glenn previously made headlines for some of his unconventional views in March when he suggested that at least some of the major California wildfires in the last several years may have been acts of terrorism.
The first DANZIG album of all-new material since 2010's widely acclaimed "Deth Red Sabaoth", "Black Laden Crown", was released last week on Evilive Records/Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
