Does Your Child Listen to ‘Loud, Heavy Rock Music’? He Might Be a Neo-Nazi
Following the devastating events in Charlottesville, the music industry and tech companies have joined forces to work against hate. Companies like Spotify have taken down white supremacist and neo-Nazi content from their platforms. In addition, government officials have worked to raise awareness about the dangers of hate groups.
Titled Signs of a Child Being Part of a Hate Group, the Calgary Police Service issued a list of signs that worried parents should look for in their children. Reading through the list, you’ll find common warning signs like violent behavior and stereotyping certain ethnic or religious groups. The police force also urged parents to remain vigilant for behavior such as children wearing or displaying Nazi propaganda.
But did you know that playing loud heavy rock music also counts as a warning sign? Maybe it’s time to put away your favorite AC/DC and Black Sabbath albums.

They've been saying that about youth and music since music was invented.
In my day the only difference was they said your kid might be a Satanist or worshiping the Devil instead of being a Neo-Nazi.
It's the same false scare tactic they use on every generation only with a slight modification as to what sinister organization you kids might be a part of or become victim to.
It didn't end with music either. If anyone heard you were playing Dungeons and Dragons you would almost surely be spending the next hour trying to prove you weren't summoning demons or on the verge of killing yourself because you were possessed by playing that game.
I had a couple friends who had to lie to their parents about it because they refused to believe that it was just a game and nobody was in danger of falling in line with Satan and Black Magic.
Some people just like to believe the easy answers for more complex questions regardless of how ridiculous those answers may be.

I was listening to Paranoid by Black Sabbath when I clicked this thread. How oddly appropriate.
The 90s are back in force, apparently.
Metal and Rock music is an evil neo-nazi/satanist conspiracy.
Better arrest Marilyn Manson as a Nazi hatemonger, and quick.
