The mainstream media is filled with fake news. They are not the bringers of truth, they are the pushers of lies. They report on every single negative thing that someone from the right does, while failing to report the biases coming from their own side on the left. A good portion of heavy metal journalists are guilty of pushing this biased narrative as well.
The principal ideology of punk is based on freedom and liberation. It’s supposed to be about a community of people that don’t want government telling them how to live their lives. Ironically, punk bands of today fight for politicians to have even more control over people.
