WHERE ALL THE FUCKING

WHITE HATS HANG OUT

COME DOWN TO WESTERN PLAZA

WHERE KING'S

'BOUT TO FUCK SHIT UP!

[GLASS SHATTERS]

[CROWD CLAMORING]

[LAUGHTER, CLAMORING CONTINUES]

[MUSIC PLAYING]

IT'S NOW OR NEVER,

MOTHERFUCKERS!

WE END THIS SHIT TONIGHT.

[CAMERON]

"DESTROY EVERYTHING."

IS THIS THE MESSAGE WE WAN TO SEND OUR CHILDREN

FOR GENERATIONS TO COME?

"DESTROY... EVERYTHING."

THIS, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

IS WHAT THA WEAPON-WIELDING GOON WORE

THE NIGHT OF THE ALTERCATION.

LOOKS TO ME LIKE

HE WAS ON:

A MISSION TO KILL.

COMBAT BOOTS,

WAR CHAINS...

"DESTROY EVERYTHING."

[MARILYN MANSON ON TV]

HOW'S IT GOING, NEW YORK?

I CHOSE TO SPEAK TO YOU

IN A SQUARE:

BECAUSE I THINK WE'RE KIND OF

CONDITIONED TO LISTEN TO PEOPLE,

WHEN THEY'RE IN

THE SHAPE OF A SQUARE.

AND ALSO, HERE IN HOLLYWOOD,

THIS IS WHERE WE GIVE PEOPLE

WHAT THEY WANT.

VIOLENCE, I GUESS THAT'S WHA IT SEEMS TO COME DOWN TO.

WHAT I WANTED TO TALK TO

EVERYONE TODAY ABOUT,

UH... I DON'T REALLY

WANT TO PREACH,

I JUST WANT TO, MORE,

BRING UP SOME QUESTIONS.

AND SINCE I ALWAYS

TEND TO BE:

A SCAPEGOAT, I THOUGH WE'D TALK ABOUT BLAME.

RIGHT NOW,

EVERYBODY WANTS TO BLAME MUSIC,

THEY WANT TO:

BLAME MOVIES,

BUT, UH... YOU KNOW,

WE'VE FORGOTTEN

THAT WE HAVE A DEAD GUY

HANGING FROM A TREE

IN OUR LIVING ROOMS.

UH... UH...

AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE'VE

WORSHIPPED ALL OUR LIVES.

IF YOU THINK ABOU THE CRUCIFIX AS THE...

THE GREATEST MASS-MARKE PIECE OF MERCHANDISE

IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.

I'VE ALWAYS FOUND I TO BE KIND OF INTERESTING.

WE HAVEN'T REALLY SAT DOWN AND

TALKED ABOUT THAT ON THE NEWS.

UM... ALSO, WONDERED

WHY NOBODY CARES WHEN

AN ADULT COMMITS SOME

SENSELESS ACT OF VIOLENCE

THEY WANT TO HAVE

A REASON WHY.

THAT'S ONLY WHEN

A KID DOES IT.

BUT I THINK WHAT'S REALLY...

BEGUN TO CONFUSE PEOPLE NOW

AND WHY WE'RE IN THIS STATE

OF... UH, CHAOS

AND, UH, PC, NONSENSICAL,

UPTIGHTNESS.

IT'S WHITE TEENAGERS.

THAT'S THE REAL ENIGMA.

WHY ARE THEY MAD?

THEY'RE MIDDLE CLASS,

THEY'RE WHITE,

THEY'RE SPOILED.

IS IT BECAUSE THEY KNOW

AMERICA'S A LIE?

IS IT BECAUSE:

WE MAKE THEM FEEL

LIKE THEY'RE NEVER

GOOD ENOUGH, YOU KNOW?

"YOU'RE NEVER GOOD ENOUGH

FOR THE SCHOLARSHIP,

FOR THE CAR, FOR THE GIRL.

NEVER GOOD ENOUGH TO BE

FAMOUS FOR 15 MINUTES."

AND THEN, ARE WE SURPRISED

WHY THEY'RE MAD

OR WHY THEY END UP DEAD,

YOU KNOW?

WHY THE VIOLENCE?

'CAUSE, YOU KNOW...

YOU MADE THEM, AMERICA.

YOU KNOW,

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?

[CROWD CHANTING IN DISTANCE]

[MARCHING BAND PLAYING,

CHANTING]

SPORTS STUFF.

SHIT, YEAH.

HEY, QUIT MESSING AROUND, MAN.

WHY? I DON'T EVEN SEE WHY YOUR

BITCH-ASS NEEDS A HELMET ANYWAY.

JV HAS NO BUSINESS

SUITING UP.

[MCCORMICK]

COME ON NOW, RICKY.

HE MIGHT SEE THE FIELD.

WE'LL HAVE THEIR ASS BEA BY HALFTIME, YOU KNOW THAT.

MCCORMICK, YOU ACT LIKE IT'S

HARD TO BE A LINEMAN, MAN.

ALL YOU DO IS SIT ON

YOUR FAT ASS AND EAT.

BUDDY, ONLY THING I'M EATING

IS YOUR MOM'S PUSSY.
