You may be looking for the video, ‘This Is Our Country’, published via this page.
For those wondering where it has gone, TOTT News would like to clarify (and now report on) why the video has since been removed from the website.
TOTT News has been contacted by sources inside of John Schumann’s team, who have requested that the copyrighted use of his song be removed from the internet, pending further legal action.
We have respected this claim.
The video had just over three thousand views on YouTube before being targeted.
In addition to copyright claims, Schumann told TOTT News:
“I object strenuously to the use of my work promulgating what I consider to be a stupid and socially irresponsible message.”
The video in question remixed song lyrics to ‘I Was Only 19’, calling for an end to lockdown restrictions. It also overlaid images and footage of human rights abuses and police brutality in Australia over the last 18 months.
John has since taken to social media to publicly declare his attack and opposition against what he calls “anti-vaxxer” content, despite the remix containing no references to vaccines:
Let’s not forget that John Stuart Mill (quoted by Schumann above) argued that the state may legitimately regulate marriage and child-bearing, and was a leading proponent of these theories in an era of Galton-inspired eugenics.
Think of this what you will.
One Facebook user responded to his post by pointing out the flaws in his freedom logic, in comparison to the brutal and failed campaign of Vietnam, which the original song was about:
Vietnam was opposed by millions of people across the planet.
Ethan Nash from TOTT News commented on this push: “I didn’t even know who John was, to be honest, just the song. It was a big tune, I hear, for the Vietnam War Hoax era. It’s sad to discover that now — when we are in real war time — a simple remix of a classic song will not be permitted by the artist under fair use.”
Apologies to all readers — a very interesting development.
