Dropkick Murphys bassist heads over to deliver justice to a Nazi-saluting skinhead
Dropkick Murphys

I've never been the biggest Dropkick Murphys guy, but maybe I should reevaluate that after their performance at Terminal 5 last week.

It was St Patty's Day week, the shows were packed, and people were getting drunk. And Rowdy. Really Rowdy. As has become tradition the band invited the ladies to come onto the stage for their encore of "Kiss Me Im Shitfaced" 50+ ladies made it past the barricade and onto the stage and danced the song away. The band then kicked into "Skinhead on the MBTA" and a ton of dudes werre getting past security and the stage ended up being packed tighter than the underside of a real man's kilt. As the band kicked into T.N.T. by AC/DC some moron started seig heiling (the nazi salute) in time to the beat.

Dropkicks singer / bassist Ken Casey noticed this and ran right over to the guy, smashed him in the face, took off his bass and hit him with that and then jumped on him and all out chaos ensued. We could only assume from our vantage point that said nazi got his ass kicked. About 30 seconds later Ken emerged from the pileup with his shirt torn and made his way back to the front of the stage. He strapped on his bass and said into the microphone "Nazis are NOT FUCKING WELCOME at a Dropkick Murphys show." -[Rocks Off]

Catch Dropkick Murphys on tour this spring for dates from coast to coast including Long Island at Paramount Theater on June 12. Tickets go on presale on Wednesday (3/20) at 10AM and regular sale on Friday. If you go, make sure and shake hands with bassist Ken Casey.

He noticed that guy doing the salute unusually quickly, like before I could while watching video from a better vantage point.

I think the guy saluted for about 1.5 seconds before being punched in the face. That's a good response time.

I watched this video a buncha times. Looked like nazi dude was fist pumping with his left hand - then did one seig heil with the left and then realized he should switch to the right. Ken Casey looked across the stage just as he did the first seig heil and went right after him. Badass.

@218 dude was definitely doing the salute, albeit only for a few seconds before being punished.

on the one hand, the guy probably isn't a nazi and was being an idiot.

on the other hand, you can't seig heil on stage in front of thousands of new yorkers and expect to get offstage unbloodied.

How has Ken Casey not been arrested for assault for hitting the guy?

'Say Ken was indicted for assault (first-degree?) and the case went to a criminal court. All the lawyer of the guy Ken hit has to do is convince the jury his client was a drunk who was merely fist-pumping, not a Nazi-sympathizer who was Seig Heiling and include testimony from his client's family and friends saying the guy doesn't have a racist/Nazi-sympathetic bone in his body and a jury would most likely believe him. The lawyer could also say DMs promote ethnic pride, drunkeness, and crowd stirring which opens the door to people taking it to extremes and acting goofy, silly, and inappropriate.

'Say Ken, Dropkick Murphys, and Bowery Presents were sued by this guy. If I were him I'd sue all three of them. Again, all the guy's lawyer has to do is what his criminal defense attorney did but wait...no way this case is going to trial, BP woudn't let it go to trial. Ken, DK, and BP would settle if they had any brains in their collective noggin because this guy would win if the case went to trial. Bottom line is there is no definitive proof the guy Seig Heiled and there is defintive proof on video that Ken hit the guy not once but twice, the second time with a bass.

If the guy was smart he'd sue. He might, he might not. I hope he does since he wasn't Seig Heiling, he was one of the 200 or so drunken idiots onstage fistpumping and Ken Casey was wound up as tight as a gnat's asshole.

Ken is a fucking punkass bitch for coldcocking this guy then hitting him with something. Confront the guy with a "What's up with the Seig Heiling?" and if the guy mouths off then you hit him, if you must hit him. Coldcocking the guy is a bitch move.

It is often hard to hold rational discourse while onstage performing in an Irish rock circus.

Case facts: he did seig heil - regardless of if he's a nazi - which can be interpreted as a hate-crime or an act of hate speech, illegal in many countries. I don't think many juries would find a man guilty of assault for responding to such hate speech with violence, regardless of the law. Yes, I work at a law firm.

If anything, he would be found not guilty and would get a lot of smiles from the jury post-verdict.

3:23pm First off you do not work at a law firm and if you did so what?

Second, the guy was not a Nazi Seig Heiling, he was a drunken idiot among many drunken idiots fist-pumping, Ken Casey thought he was a Nazi Seig Heiling, and sheep believe him.

Last if this guy is employed, pays his taxes, has no criminal record, does not belong to a hate group, and has his parents and friends say what a good guy he is, a jury will see he was merely a drunk who either fist-pumped or Seig Heiled and didn't mean it because he was drunk.

Definitively prove he is a Nazi (as in a member of a hate group) and Seig Heiling (and not fist-pumping in lieu of the thousands of people drunk and/or fist-pumping/moving their arms.)

Btw I could make a case DMs were promoting hate by promoting Irish pride as what's to stop someone from hurting someone who doesn't share with the celebration? Or is it required that you have to be Irish and/or have Irish pride to attend a DMs show? What if I said "fuck Irish pride" and got attacked? Is that not a hate crime? Yes it is because I was attacked for not ascribing to an ethnic group's pride and/or perhaps not being part of that ethnic group.

Oh wait...Dropkick Murphys have a song called "Skinhead On The MBTA". Aren't some skinheads part of hate/white supremacist/Nazi-sympathizer groups? YES THEY ARE. So Dropkick Murphys are promoting a hate group or members of a hate group with the title of their song, by the logic of all you "Yo da guy wuz a Nazi good fer Ken!" di ckriders.

One could argue DMs encourage hate group people to attend their shows and just how is Irish Pride different than White Pride when the majority of Irish people are white and countless Irish people belong to hate groups? Perhaps Irish Pride is White Pride in disguise.

Oh yeah who's to say DMs aren't in solidarity with the IRA a terrorist group? I bet they are and if they are they are pro-terrorist, too.

My spin on this, not that anybody cares, is that while it is probably morally justifiable to beat up a guy who is sieg heiling (assuming he was and the video, to me, is inconclusive), it is still assault and a crime and the person who commits the crime should be convicted. The fact that the guy was sieg heiling is simply a mitigating factor in sentencing, but has nothing to do with the fact that the crime was committed. I am aware of no provision in NY law that provides a justification defense for beating up a nazi, a communist, or a member of any other political group that is not generally well liked.

Hey D, pretty sure fist-pumping requires a fist, rather than a straight hand.

"No definitive proof indeed:

Also this. And yes, I work at a law firm. But go ahead and try to show that above .gif in court, and argue that the guy was innocently fist-pumping rather than seig-heiling, and everyone will laugh. Your client would probably even shake his head.

Posted by D12 | March 19, 2013 4:29 PM

@4:03: Never heard that Skinhead on the MBTA song, but I'm guessing by his onstage reaction that the DM are not promoting the Skinhead agenda. I'm guessing the song is excoriating skinheads. You can write a song about a subject without "promoting" that subject. You may not know this, but many, many songs actually complain about things.

And I think there's a WEE BIT of difference in connotation between Irish Pride and "White Pride." All your arguments read like every ignorant defense of the white power movement that I've ever heard or read, with giant leaps in "logic" and erroneous facts used as evidence to support other erroneous facts. i.e., "Countless Irish people belong to hate groups" and Skinheads are a hategroup and DM are white and Irish so they must be in a hate group. Solid argument. Begging the question AND specious arguments. Really covering your classic debating errors...

And 4:18: NICE!

"I am aware of no provision in NY law that provides a justification defense for beating up a nazi, a communist, or a member of any other political group that is not generally well liked."

It's not a matter of law, so much as common sense. Google 'Joseph Greenstein vs. 20 nazis' and maybe you'll get it.

The world, as a whole, acknowledges that nazis are pieces of crap, so it is very hard to find someone guilty of performing an unjustly violent act against a person whose ideology supports the mass extermination of an entire race. This is why trial by jury exists, and why the law isn't black and white.

Can we for the sake of sanity just stop even replying to anyone who says there is no clear proof the guy is doing it. It's just inane. The ones who say they can't see for sure are either nazi's themselves or a person living in a blind fog of stupidity.

and people seem to be mixing up skinheads and nazis - don't non-nazi skinheads get all upset about that? and wear different color laces or something?

In the United States, it is illegal to distribute and/or facilitate the distribution of pro-Nazi propaganda or literature.

Given the above, one could easily argue that going onstage in front of thousands of people and performing the 'seig heil' hand movement is illegal, and thus could be considered an act of provocation worthy of physical reproach.

Trad Skin good job perpetuating that skinheads are idiots with your violence.

Freddy Madball once wore a Skrewdriver shirt with pic as proof albeit as a kid which is worse because older people let him wear it. By your logic if he wore one onstage at the DMs show Ken should've punched him then hit him with a bass, as after all, Skrewdriver was White Power and spare me it was a pre-WP Skrewdriver shirt.
'Love the hypocrisy.

There is no definitive proof the guy was Seig Heiling and it makes no sense whatsoever that a "Nazi" would show up to a DMs show of 3000+ DMs fans strong to Seig Heil. This guy isn't a Nazi like Freddy Madball isn't one. Prove this guy is.

Posted by D | March 19, 2013 5:47 PM

The guy was clearly enjoying himself and having a good time. Innocent bystander. The bass player, probably all drugged out and seeing pink elephants and nazis, thought it would be a good idea to show how hard he was by dry-gulching a guy when he wasn't ready.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2013 5:50 PM

For those who think that it is illegal to give a sieg heil in the US, it is not. Being a nazi is protected by the 1st Amendment. Stating that fact is not supporting nazis, who I believe are scumbags, but rather is stating US law and endorsing the 1st Amendment. If somebody wants to beat up a dude who is sieg heiling, that's fine with me, but there could be legal ramifications since it is assault. Who knows, you might get lucky with a jury or you might not, but watching that video I see no legal justification, i.e. self defense, defense of others, for what transpired. The guy sieg heiling could also possibly be prosecuted for some sort of hate crime, but I doubt it very much, at least not based on that video. So, fine, beat up nazis, who can blame you, but be prepared to face the consequences too. I mean, if we are just allowed to go around beating up nazis, then we can go around beating up anybody who is associated with an unfavorable political opinion, and I don't see that necessarily as a good thing.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2013 5:51 PM

Only 4:16 got it right. Just have security throw him out. The fact that he violently assaulted someone proves he's just trying to look like a hard-ass in front of the audience and as far as I'm concerned no better than the Nazi punk. Guarentee the guys gonna press charges.

I agree with 4:00 p.m. Brooklyn Vegan comments are some of the worst, why the hell do I even bother reading them? It is good to know were I can check in from time to time to make sure I'm listening to the correct hipster band.

And 4:30, "Skinhead On The MBTA" is a cover/remake of a 1948 folk song called "Charlie On The MTA". "Charlie" was written as a campaign song for the Progressive Party candidate who opposed recent rate increases to ride the M.T.A. DKM took the song and reworked the lyrics and music, which I have always taken as rather tongue-in-cheek, to be about a skinhead.

Hey "Fake D" guy it's me, deal with it.

Bottom line is Ken Casey did not have the legal right to attack the guy who was not physically harming anyone including Casey. Casey did not act out of self-defense of himself or others.

'Say the guy Seig Heiled. His speech (if you could call it that) is protected by the First Amendment as 5:51pm posted before me, deal with that, too. Also deal with the fact that no one has the right to beat up anyone who communicates something disagreeable.

BTW Anti-Heros have a song with the words "Seig Heil to Santa" in the chorus, should we beat them up for using the words? I mean one could misinterpret that as the band advocating Naziism. How 'bout we fuck up whoever made American History X as there's a scene where a character Seig Heils the main character? Art is protected by the First Amendment but speech isn't? Bullshit to that.

Wow... first off, you seriously think that you're going to find enough people who would convict someone of assault for someone throwing up a Nazi salute? In NYC? That would actually make it into a jury pool? You must seek... rehab. I seriously doubt any DA in the city would even bother with addressing any possible charges. Secondly, almost every judge in the city is going to look at the video and go "First off, you were at a punk rock show, and secondly, you were acting like a total idiot and doing something you either KNEW was going to incite a conflict, or you were ignorant of the fact that it would, which in that case ignorance of no excuse. Now you're going to act surprised that something happened? You're an idiot. Case dismissed."

I wouldn't post it if I didn't believe it.

Tell me how Ken Casey has the legal right to attack someone not in self-defense of himself or others and show me where in that video the guy he viciously assaulted was physically harming anyone.

By your logic and logic of a really ignorant few, if I was hanging out on the street with a friend and talking about American History X where I was imitating the scene where the guy Seig Heiled Derek Vinyard, someone who saw me do that (misinterpreting what I'm doing as Seig Heiling out of being a "Nazi" besides not minding one's own business) could run up to me, punch me, then hit me over the head with a beer bottle, and that person would be right in doing that when that person would not.

Posted by D | March 21, 2013 10:26 AM

Hey TarkioKid

You are erroneously presuming the jury would think it was a Seig Heil.

If a lawyer is good enough, he could convince the jury it was not a Seig Heil salute. He can also instruct the jury to convict Ken Casey for assaulting someone for speaking his mind and not physically harming anyone by doing so, and a jury would find Casey guilty. A lawyer could also bring up character witnesses including family, friends, and co-workers testifying that the guy Casey attacked is not a Nazi-sympathizer. He could also show the jury DKM's song about a skinhead with the word "skinhead" in it and say DKMs are glorifying Nazis as "skinheads are Nazis" and how DKM promote white pride under the guise of "Irish pride".

I know you want everything to fall into its neat little box which affirms your argument, but the real world doesn't work that way, so get back into it. The jury wouldn't be made up of hardcore punks and skins you fu cking numbn ut, it'd most likely be made up of the masses who have no use for DKMs or their fans, so all bets are off as to how they'd view the guy Casey attack and check this: they're supposed to make a decision based on the letter of the law.

The judge could just as easily say DKM were inciting riotous and inappropriate behavior by having hundreds of people, all drunken and/or boisterous come up onstage and all bets are off regarding rules of behavior. And how 'bout all those people onstage? Doesn't that violate fire safety laws? Wasn't it reckless, irresponsible, and negligent on Bowery Presents' part for allowing so many people on stage built to support only a certain amount of weight? What if the stage caved in or someone fell off the stage and hit his/her head on whatever? What if there was a fire where a stampede from a panic alone could kill dozens of people?

Posted by D | March 21, 2013 10:38 AM

8:03am

That's all well and good but fact is your average juror could think or be convinced that skinheads are Nazis and DKMs are glorifying skinheads thus glorifying Nazis.

I'd say 99.999% of the American populace think skinheads are Nazis. That's not me saying they are Nazis, it is what it is.

You people need to take your collective head out of your collective as s and realize A JURY WOULD NOT BE MADE UP OF PEOPLE INTO HARDCORE PUNK, OI, OR DROPKICK MURPHYS. They would be made up of your Average Joe or Jane who doesn't know jack fu cking sh it and/or has no fu cking care whatsoever about skinheads, skinhead persecution or scapegoating. Most of them have seen skinheads portrayed as Nazis and white supremacists and will see them as that.

Posted by D | March 21, 2013 10:46 AM

D you are correct. I would add that anyone calling the guy flailing his arms a Nazi ( neo- Nazi actually) could be sued for libel as well, even if he is a drunken moron.

****FAKE IRISHMAN ALERT*****

Ah..people these days. Anyone even Irish anymore? There's a "Irish" punk band down in Houston called The Dead Rabbits, in which nobody is Irish. That's fine, people enjoy playing Irish music, but this dude fakes his accent and says he is..he even has IRA tattoos. At first I thought it was just for the band, which wouldnt have been AS weird, but the dude pretends to be Irish off stage too. haha. it's weird. Bands like his are destroying the music scene.

Hating on Irish people is sooooo late 1800s, did you know that majority of the famous people in Ireland are intellectuals, poets, and musicians, and majority of the Irish that came to USA are the tough working class, athletes, cops and firefighters. The term "drunken Irish skinhead" is the dumbest thing ive ever heard. 1. Irish love to drink, every drink that came out of Ireland is delicious, so can you blame them? Who else likes to drink? Blacks, Germans, Mexicans, Americans, EVERYONE. 2. Skinheads ARE NOT RACIST, they are a term for the working class and war veterans that dont even have to be fucking white. Ken Casey is a respected, tough, generous, manly Irish American that has probably done more for society in one day then that shithead did his entire life. Ken Casey is the best singer songwriter this awful generation has

Posted by McLarney | October 30, 2013 7:20 PM

Ken Casey is a fucking pussy who needed a bass guitar to hit a guy who may or may not have Seig Heiled the crowd.

If Ken Casey is "the best singer/songwriter this awful generation has", this is one sorry-assed generation because DKM are a piece of shit band.
