The rock band Everclear has a new song whose video has created some controversy. The song is called "Hater."frontman Art Alexakis in a head to head interview with Bill O'Reilly can be seen in this video.
This clip from the O'Reilly Factor where band frontman Art Alexakis responds to O'Reilly's criticism of the video which hit the internet about a month ago.
O'Reilly says this video is controvrsial because:
1. The video is unclear and fails to spell out it's message
2. The video depicts Jesus (or a heathen version of Jesus) doing immoral things
3. Dedicating this video to Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson does not make sense and is judgemental
Alexakis supports this video because:
1. It's artful in it uses icnons
2. It's a "break-up song" and the video was written to show hate in a unique way
3. It makes a saliant point to criticizes people who claim to be men of God but are unproductive, unjust, unholy, and hypocritical.
