“Refugee Song” is taken from “Dissent: Midterm Protest Songs Benefiting the ACLU”, a collection of folk protest songs, dealing with certain current events, by Marty Moran of Loose Freight band.
The album is not anti-American or anti-Republican or anti-conservative or anti-Russian. It is squarely anti-Trump, as well as any other small-hearted bully that uses stolen power for cruel or selfish purposes.
In Marty’s own words: “Refugee Song” was written and recorded in Spring 2017, when the first of yammy’s draconian travel bans were enacted. Somewhere I saw an image of a kid holding a “you’re welcome here” sign at an American airport as a small group of refugees was deplaning, and it led to this. I guess it’s written ideally for the hypocrites who forget this is a nation built of and by immigrants. It’s not like it was a thousand years ago, friends.
