Yeah that's why I stopped listening to them years ago. NOFX seem to be pandering to the young folk too much. Seeing Fat Mike and the Not My President shirt over and over again just shows he can't or won't realize the left is just as bad.
As for "punk" I usually prefer Atrocious Madness, Conflict, Cress, Dropdead, Aus Rotten, Gai, Cetascean, Discharge, Magrudergrind, Triac and on and on. Usually I prefer bands that promote complete unity regardless of who a person is and what they believe in. Or ones that try to make people aware of the problems in the world.
Punk can be problematic due to the negative images surrounding it. Like crust, d-beat, it's usually warlike, apocalyptic black and white images on the covers and many are turned off by it along with the screaming. It's often misconstrued as being deconstructive when in the long run it's constructive, if they don't focus on alcohol and "rioting".
