"According to News.com.au, American punk rock icon and writer Henry Rollins was reported to the National Security hotline during his recent Australian tour because of a book he was reading on a flight to Brisbane.

A furious Rollins was informed he was "nominated as a possible threat" for reading "Jihad: The Rise of Militant Islam In Central Asia", writes Kathy McCabe.

The incident happened on a flight from Auckland on the recent Big Day Out tour.

Rollins told Australian fans during his tour that he received a letter from a "nice woman" who worked "in one of those government areas that deals with anti-terrorism matters."

He posted the letter on his web site.

"Please tell your Government and everyone in your office to go **** themselves. Baghdad's safer than my hometown and your PM is a sissy," he wrote. "

Old news but still hilarious.

He said something about it during his IFC special thing.
I love his "spoken word" performances.

Old, but funny.

That letter reminds me of when he writes letters on his show. I love the Rollins show.

I loved the letter he wrote to Anne Coulter.

"But mostly, you will shut the fuck up."

I can just imagine her crying after him saying that.

I would have...
"This shit here's called Death"
"What the fuck? You mean I'm gonna hit this shit and die?"
"No Nigga! I said Deaf. You hit this and you aint gonna hear shit!"

But really our nation has turned to sh*t, but if howard is a sissy all of our prime ministers have been sissys (which they were)

I can't stand how we go in all of americas wars.

When you look at a guy and immediately go, "wow, what a douchebag"

that is what girls find attractive.

Ugh. That's like that one guy who got stopped for singing London Calling in a taxi.

Not to sound like i'm 80 years old, but what the hell is the world coming to?


That was really f**king shocking. I heard about another guy who sent the singer of his band Clash lyrics to 'spanish bombs' in a text message,and he got questioned. I Got searched one day on a bus coming back from my girlfriends,just after the events that happened in London. My girlfriend lives like an hour away and I go to stay with her for a few days so I take my electric razor with me,but because it was ****ed I had one with blades. They confiscated the razor and were going to chuck me off untill they saw my girlfriend outside and I explained to them I was at hers. 'you still shouldn't carry a razor' they kept saying. me being a cocky bastrd replied 'So some one who buys them from a shop isn't carrying them?,Do we need to make a postal order to get razors?'

Anyway is Rollins spoken word stuff any good because he's at the Download festival this year and I wonder if he's worth going to see?

Cuck Norris once broke his leg by delivering a roundhouse kick the to neck of Henry Rollins....


I'm still convinced that henry rollins' neck will, one day, single-handedly destroy capitalism and world hunger.
