A song that calls for a national reckoning against immigrants has been banned in Canada and has sparked outrage across the United States, with people saying it trivializes crime.
Canada, the U.S. and Australia also have laws that ban or restrict immigrants from performing the song, which has been performed on national television in Canada.
But many of the songs posted on YouTube in the past year have been widely criticized for trivializing crime and encouraging violence.
“It is not an anthem.
It is not a rallying cry,” said Canadian artist and rapper Adam Carolla, who performed the song last year on Fox News.
“It is the music of hate.
It should be banned.”
A group called the Coalition Against Illegal Immigration (CAI) has been working to remove the songs from YouTube, and Carolla said they’re planning to target other songs.
Carolla said the song promotes a worldview of fear and hatred, and promotes the idea that illegal immigrants are “bad people” who should be deported.
The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) issued a statement Tuesday calling the songs “disgusting and offensive.”
“The use of the song as a means to advance racist, misogynistic and xenophobic messages is unacceptable and should be met with the strongest possible penalties,” the statement said.
The song is “inappropriate for the digital age,” and Carona said the CACP would work to remove it.
“The song itself is just disgusting,” he said.
“There is a whole world of racism and xenophobia that exists in this country and the fact that it’s being used to promote these sorts of hateful messages is just a huge problem.”
Carolla’s song has been seen by some Canadians as a rallying call against the country’s immigrants.
The United States is a major market for the UAC, which works with a wide range of groups and groups of people to help them escape violence and poverty.CAI said it would target videos showing violence against women, and would “target videos of women committing crimes against immigrants.”
“If you have one video of someone breaking into your house, and you see them running across the street and they’re getting killed and there’s an ad for a song that says, ‘I’m not the only one that’s killing people,’ that is not appropriate for the internet,” Carolla told Reuters.
