We are not the kind of company that feels the need to express our political opinions, but there comes a time when silently standing on the sidelines is no longer acceptable.

This is a nation of immigrants founded on religious freedom and the belief that all men are created equal. This is the land of the American Dream, of Martin Luther King’s Dream, and the dreams of every person who has come here believing that every human being has certain unalienable rights, and among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The executive order signed last week barring immigration from seven Muslim countries and denying all refugees entry into the United States is immoral and inhumane and goes against everything that once made America great.

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
-Emma Lazarus
(Statue of Liberty)

So we at Atomic Disc will stand with our friends at Bandcamp in their efforts to oppose the ban on immigration, and we will also donate 100% of all our profits on Friday, February 3rd to the American Civil Liberties Union who are working around the clock to fight the discriminatory actions of the executive order.

We are so proud to be a part of the arts and music community which shares a special bond among us all over the world. From all walks of life, religious backgrounds and ethnic heritages, our love for creating and sharing our art and music breaks down barriers to unite us rather than divide us.
Let us be the example for all others to follow.

Sad, I liked dealing with this company.

Ignorance of American History seems to be bliss in this age of leftist revisionism. The United States is a sovereign country, with laws and regulations. Any minute understanding of immigration reveals that restrictions have always been in place. I understand that the socialist agenda has brainwashed most of the last 2 to 3 generations into thinking that we are part of some global collective that has a moral obligation to allow everyone free access inside our borders. This country was not made great by interpreting its principles as a means of self-destruction. Anyone who locks their vehicles or bolts their doors at night understands this principle. Surely, we cannot believe that restricting access to our property is immoral and inhumane and goes against everything that makes our home great.

The words of Emma Lazarus inscribe on the Statue of Liberty has a context, and that context is not that the US is morally obligated to allow “all refugees entry into the United States,” but rather that the US is a bastion of opportunity; opportunity only realized because of the laws and regulations which establish a foundation of benefit to the whole. Hence the idiom of the great “melting pot.” The perception of these concepts, espoused in the post, greatly errs and reveals how little some people understand about this nation’s history and the principles that made her the greatest nation ever conceived.

The post really reveals nothing more than an embracing of leftist misrepresentation of policy. Contrary to the disinformation espoused against this administration, there is no blanket restriction on immigration. This temporary suspension is not only necessary but prudent. Even the mainstream media admits that among the populous, support for the temporary ban leads by nearly 9 points, making up a majority of the people.

I am proud to stand with the decision of the President of the United States of America, and with the majority of liberty-loving, working class Americans who continue to make this country great.

I will not be purchasing anything on Feb. 3rd. Thanks for the heads-up.

In fact, I won’t be making any further purchase from Atomic disc. Sad really, since you have a good product, but my patriotic conscience will not allow any of my hard-earned money to find its way into the socialist coffers of the ACLU.

PKM:

Thank you!

Incredible.

I am new to Atomic, and your stance just upped your cache 20 fold. I’m always hesitant when dealing with businesses, fearing they’ll try to trick me and rip me off at the first chance they get (e.g. we’ve got him in the system, if he changes an order we can sock it to him with a big change order fee).

Any company who is not afraid to take a positive stance on civil rights of all people, not just US, and who is unafraid to risk retribution, deserves my business and I will be using you as much as I can and will be recommending you to everyone.

BTW: I don’t lock my doors at night.

I will place an order on Friday, and wish I could place a hundred.

Full support this and will be attempting to expedite our package purchase to be involved with checking and balancing the checks and balances.
I also fully support any company fighting for the little guy. It’s time companies begin to value more than the bottom line. We don’t sacrifice who we are for a dollar and I want to work with people and entities who share the same sentiment.
