"Giuliani Über Alles" by Hasidic New Wave

With Rudy Giuliani in the news again this week for his political commentary about our current President who doesn't love America in quite the same way Rudy does, we've had this little ditty from the late nineties stuck in our head:

There's a more polished version of this song at the end of Kabalogy (which is also worth it for 'The Frank Zappa Memorial Bris'), but this first public performance of  'Giuliani Über Alles' has a great energy:

If more recent memories of the man who has made a career out of being "Mayor 9/11" have driven any thoughts of his earlier association with police brutality and killings out of your memory, and if you don't know what the line about a "plunger up your ass" is about, then you need to read again about the torture of Abner Louima in 1997 followed by the police shootings of Amadou Diallo in 1999 and Patrick Dorismond in 2000 in Rudy Giuliani's NYC. Without his ability to form a new reputation on the wreckage of the World Trade Center, unrestrained NYPD abuse, brutality, and killings would be his only legacy.
