System of A Down drummer John Dolmayan condemned the actions of the Trump supporters who raided the U.S. Capitol building, leaving four people dead.
Dolmayan wrote on social media "A rally, a protest , a movement , a debate , or any activism of any kind should be and can be conducted peacefully. There are those who’s goal it is to create a civil war of thought in this country and the polarization experienced in the last year has proven it.
"Our country is in need of sensible debate and a greater understanding of opposing views. Unfortunately, I see a greater divide in the future and less acceptance of alternative thinking. Simply reading some of the comments below will show this . If Biden is in fact president I wish his presidency the best and will support the country in anyway I can , as an American that’s my responsibility and as a conservative that’s just my ideology."
Shortly after the election, Dolmayan wrote “If the will of the American people is that Joe Biden is president then so be it but only if he achieved this without fraud or collusion. This president has been under attack for nearly five years by all media both social and otherwise along with massive corporations and the lifelong politicians who have been actively attacking him since he decided to run."
He later added “If Biden wins all of these protests will disappear and there will be a quick end to the pandemic , don’t fall for it. You will probably never see another non politician run for this office again ,that is our loss. This election is not over nor should it be without complete transparency.”
