Henry Rollins, Terrorist Threat

HenryRollins.jpgDave Navarro isn’t the only rocker posting almost daily to their blog – longtime Los Angeles resident Henry Rollins has been posting daily since as far back as Christmas Eve (the archives are a little hard to access, so hard to tell).

A post from two weeks ago details a letter that apparently came from some Australian government agency.

‚ÄúI hope this finds you before you leave Australia as I think its something that won‚Äôt surprise you but might give you a smile when you are sitting in a hotel room. I work in one of those Government areas that deals with anti terrorism matters. A fine service is provided but unfortunately we get to read a lot of things submitted by lunatics. The Australian Government set up the National Security Hotline to report terrorists… The person who sat next to you on the flight from New Zealand does not agree with your politics or choice of reading and so nominated you as a possible threat. As they were too cowardly or stupid to leave their details I can‚Äôt call them to discuss their idiocy with them.‚Äù

Turns out Henry was reading Jihad: The Rise Of Militant Islam In Central Asia that he points was printed by Yale University Press. “Didn‚Äôt Bush drink beer at Yale? Didn‚Äôt he not seem to learn much at Yale?”

Henry replied to the letter with a friendly note:

“Please tell your government and everyone in your office to go fuck themselves. Tell them twice. If your boss is looking for something to do, you can tell him I suggest he go fuck himself. Baghdad’s safer than my hometown and your PM is a sissy. You have a nice night.‚Äù

Thats the way to represent the West Coast! You go, Henry!
