    I am Reverend Pat Robertson
    Vote for me to forgive your sins
    God says I shall be president
    1st amendment will soon go away
    I will be your messiah today
    Now I command all of you
    Now your gonna pray in school
    I'll make sure they're Christian too

    Armageddon über alles

    Theocrats will control you
    Still you think it’s biblical
    Crusades in the holy land
    Don’t forget to nuke Kazakhstan
    Close your eyes can’t happen here
    The KKK is coming near
    Slavery won’t come back you say?
    Bow to me or you will pay!

    Now it is 1994
    Knock knock at your mosque door
    It’s the CIA secret police
    You’re a terrorist, so is your niece
    You’ll go quietly to conversion camp
    They’ll shoot you dead, make you a man
    Don’t you worry it’s for a reason
    Trigger the end times or it’s treason
    Die in a Liberian prison camp
    Or the holocaust of Jerusalem

    Wiping out civilization
    Wiping out civilization
    Punish you for homosexual cravings

    That feels about right based on OTL California Uber Alles variants.

    My God, this election would be absolute hell for the Dead Kennedys. I could totally see them playing both this and California Uber Alles back to back.

    Well them and the entire punk scene, which has a few people that were not involved IOTL.

    I also imagine they'd have something to say about Walter Mondale. Something tells me Jello Biafra wouldn't like the idea of a former Vice President coming back and taking the nomination when Willie Nelson could have had it instead.

    Wouldn't Jello be more ok with Mondale getting it though since Willie himself said he didn't want to run again? Then again it is Jello....

    Yeah, the guy who decided to compare Jerry Brown to Hitler is going to have something negative to say about Mondale.

    I can’t find the exact video, but I remember that Jello really considered Walter Mondale just about as negatively as Reagan (although Diane Feinstein was and still is Jello’s main enemy on the left). He’s probably voting Green as IOTL.

    Beto O'Rourke and Jello Biafra? That kinda makes sense...

    I think Biafra probably thinks Mondale's too establishment for him to back. I could see him voting for Willie Nelson in 1988 and possible 1992, though.

    This all said, the Dead Kennedys (not just Jello Biafra) have more political involvement to look for in the future.

    @Baconheimer you’ve even managed to keep two lines from the Ronnie Reagan variant when he was elected President.

    You'd have to commend Oppo for that. because he wrote it.

    After seeing what Willie Nelson went through in his three campaigns, most of his friends are unwilling to get into elected politics.

    In other countries, however, particularly Ireland, there are some musicians that are planning on seeking office.

    It is so ironic that the professional politicians (that abandoned the sinking Democratic ship) are now in charge of RFTF.

    Yeah, that's a concern to the more populist wing (people like Traficant, Angus King, Ted Kaczynski, and even Jello Biafra), but Mondale is being forced to make concessions to them.
