  • P*r*o*p*a*g*a*n*d*a
    The blind won't see…. in the land of the freeeeee……..
    Watch out Brandon, when they start using you for Propaganda songs…. "when there's no where else to run"

  • My poor people… THE LAND OF THE FREE IS THE LAND OF HELL… There is nothing we can do because of trump… soon all of the streets of L.A will be empty… chaos will happen… its sad how cruel people can be we are all human we should all be treated the same…

  • Watching this on the 4th of July today. This is about as patriotic as I’m gonna get today. Or any day until some things change.

  • What a bleed heart liberal video. Legal immigration is much different than illegal immigration. Get it?

  • I listen to this song everytime my son plays it . I let him play it because he is my son.It nausates me,,because I know it is more bullshit propaganda from open borders for all,NWO.crapola.Europe is becoming a third world,,,Thank you Killers for spreading your crap

  • This dosnt surprise me his beliefs the fact he’s a Mormon & what they believe in what there passionate about , this was so fitting for him to write & sing

  • On Sunday the USA is beginning immigrantion raids. I’ll never understand, w/out knowing u personally, why u never played this song live. U played it once on Jimmy Kimmel & that’s how I knew about it U could’ve changed ppl’s mindsets by playing it. These ppl r as impt as ur fans

  • This is one of the most honest songs ever written in music history. Don’t let it go down the drain. Don’t look back in 50 years w/regret. This is a legacy u r killing. I hope some NRA member isn’t threatening u because I don’t know why u aren’t playing it live at your shows

  • This song isn’t just about immigration, it’s also about children being shot in our own country in what they think is the protected space of a classroom. And off parents go in a month, blindly sending their kids back to school, putting guns over their children’s lives. We all will face God one day, make sure u choose the right side.

  • It’s really sad to see this group get political. This song is so disrespectful to America in so many ways. I will admit that like in any country, we have violence, but at least we don’t have wars happening in our back yard like a lot of country’s do. I think we should have a wall on borders seeing that immigrants keep coming to our country illegally. If you want to make a life here, do it right. What this song doesn’t explain, is the fact that some immigrants, not all of them, bring drugs, human trafficking, and many other terrible things.

  • It isn’t our President. It’s the evil working against him. I pray so many open their eyes before next November. This isn’t Republicans against Democrats. This is good against evil. You don’t have to like the man but if you love yourself/family vote Trump. Pull your head out of the sand and do your research

  • Mr. Flowers, You And The Band Have Hit A New High With This Ballad! It's Raw In It's Truth And Beautiful In It's Glory, And I Love It!

  • Never liked political songs and this is no exception, where did the old band go? No wonder the other guys disappeared. Give us something heartfelt not political…it’s a slam against the USA.
    Open the borders and you invite terrorism plain and simple

  • Me gusta the killers porque no cae en modas básicas y tontas o en el ojo de los iluminatis. Gracias por el apoyo a toda la comunidad Latina 🖐🏻💟

  • Hermosa letra ;(
    Se expresan muchas situaciones que pasan familias de otras naciones que van a E.U en busca de una mejor vida,de un trabajo.
    Que triste que trump haga el muro mas grande,no comparto tampoco su forma de pensar.

  • What an emotional beautiful video with a great message. Just makes you appreciative of what you have. I pray that things will get better 😔

  • How has this song been out for 7 months and only have 2.8M views?! They used to be the biggest ban in the world.

  • Esto es una obra maestra. Muchos artistas prefieren mantenerse callados ante las penurias de los inmigrantes para así poder mantener su base de fans intacta y no perder seguidores. Pero The Killers fue más allá de eso. Le importó un carajo los estén en desacuerdo y pusieron el foco en un tema importantísimo. Usaron su gran plataforma para algo que vale muchísimo la pena; decidieron mostrar la realidad de estos hermanos latinos que buscan una vida mejor. Se pararon del lado correcto de la historia; junto a la gente que la lucha en el día a día.
    Un enorme abrazo fraternal a todos mis hermanos latinos. Y VIVA LATINOAMERICA!! Saludos desde Argentina.

  • Lets wait and see if the Killers feel good about their anti-American rhymes when their kids get sent off to World War 3. So busy giving away the power, these skinny white people forgot what happens if the enemy just wants to kill you. What a mess on the floor their children will make as they shit and piss themselves, before they get burned alive.

  • I just found this from my Spotify recommended. Listening the lyrics, and go here to watch the video… Now I cry, damn you

  • "Stay in your own fucking countries instead of sneaking into our successful ones where you don't belong and turning them into the shitholes from whence you came in the process" my favourite part 😭♥️♥️

  • Got a mixed feeling for this. I love the Killers and still do. I loved the music and song (even if I disliked the message). But this is when you let Spike Lee take control of your video. You divide your audience.

    Now for me to get political:
    —The detention centers on the border are very humane now thanks to Trump and Wayfair. They weren't when Obama built them.
    —There is a very legal way to immigrate to the US. The reason we don't want you to just come in is there are thousands of cases of crimes committed by illegals, as well as human-trafficking and pedophillia.
    —I may be pro-2A, there's certainly a gun-problem. I do believe in banning guns from all people, but I do believe in banning guns from some people. After all, 98% of gun crime within the US occurs in gun-free-zones, and only 0.002% of NRA members have committed a gun-related crime (according the FBI).
    —Trump is also working on the fact that we have so much incarcerations. He passed a prison reform to help rehabilitate criminals, rather then straight up punishment. As seen in other countries like Canada and Germany, this has lead to reduce-repeat offenders.

    One of the greatest things about America is if there's something wrong, we fix it.

  • Shooting outside my work yesterday. 9 dead, dozens injured. We need to stop promoting the "us vs. them" mentality. It's dehumanizing and causes nothing but violence. We are ALL part of the problem can all be part of the solution.

  • Think about the influence that bigger artists have compared to The Killers and yet not very many of them have made a song/video compiling their stance on some of America’s biggest issues.

  • Can't wipe the wind-blown smile from across my face
    It's just the old man in me
    Washing his truck at the Sinclair station
    In the land of the free (ooh)
    His mother, Adeline's family, came on a ship
    Cut coal and planted a seed
    Down in them drift mines of Pennsylvania
    In the land of the free
    Land of the free, land of the free
    In the land of the free
    Land of the free, land of the free
    Land of the free, land of the free
    In the land of the free
    (I'm standing crying)
    When I go out in my car, I don't think twice
    But if you're the wrong color skin (I'm standing, crying)
    You grow up looking over both your shoulders
    In the land of the free
    And we got more people locked up than the rest of the world
    Right here in red, white and blue (I'm standing, crying)
    Incarceration's become big business
    It's harvest time out on the avenue
    Land of the free, land of the free
    In the land of the free
    Land of the free, land of the free
    Move on there's nothing to see
    Land of the free, land of the free
    In the land of the free
    Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh
    I'm standing crying (oh oh oh oh)
    I'm standing crying (oh oh oh oh)
    So how many daughters, tell me, how many sons
    Do we have to have to put in the ground
    Before we just break down and face it
    We got a problem with guns? (Oh oh oh oh)
    In the land of the free
    Down at the border, they're gonna put up a wall
    Concrete and Rebar Steel beams (I'm standing crying)
    High enough to keep all those filthy hands off
    Of our hopes and our dreams (I'm standing crying)
    People who just want the same things we do
    In the land of the free
    Land of the free, land of the free
    In the land of the free
    Land of the free, land of the free
    Land of the free, land of the free
    In the land of the free
    Land of the free, land of the free
    Land of the free, land of the free
    Land of the free, land of the free
    In the land of the free (I'm standing crying)

  • “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-tossed to me."

  • The song sounds nice but the message is messed up and hypocritical. Especially when it comes from someone super rich.

  • Anyone that thinks taking in thousands and thousands of immigrants in is good for us is stuck in a californication daydream. Come legally and these type of propaganda songs would be irrelevant. Canada screams for people to come to them for free so stop slumming up the USA

  • Also, although I love their music I'm willing to bet every paycheck I earn as a law abiding american citizen that Brandon would never let whatever immigrant wants to, to come stay with him around his family. They preach equality from a place where equality won't corrupt their own lavish lifestyle. What they fail to realize is that if our forefathers were so arms wide open to whoever wants to come in then we wouldn't be the land of the free we'd be land of the socialist/communist north korea

  • As a Honduran all this people that are just like “sToP beInG ilLeGaL” please stfuuuu😂😂 you have no fucking idea how bad it is for some people over here…and our government is so corrupt it’s ridiculous. Of course I’m not saying that going to another country illegally is the best option, but all they’re doing is seeking for a better opportunity and the bad part is not even half of them will find it. Stop judging please y’all don’t know anything about this situation. I’m pretty sure you have your own problems over there with your racist shooters trying to kill everybody. Stop it.

  • why should the whole world not be free? It's simple minded to make only America the land of the free. Mexico should be free also, and so should ALL the South American nations. So should Canada. Why aren't more people fighting for freedom across the world rather than going to America to find it?

  • Os maiores culpados dos problemas causados pelas imigrações são os ditadores socialista de Venezuela , e América Central , Honduras e Guatemala e o governo mexicano . Essa é a verdade ! Não dá para culpar sempre os estados unidos e Trump !!!!

  • I love the Killers, but this song is incorrect. America is not racist for it's immigration laws. It's a hairy situation, yes, but not everyone that tries to cross the border or good people. Many are, and so there is a legal way to come into the country. Spike Lee is one of the most uninformed people out there. Nice lyrics and moving music don't change the fact that this song is based off opinion more so than facts. https://youtu.be/wEz0IBM_ytg.

  • This song is so powerful and deserves more attention.
    Love to My beautiful Mexican people. The Hispanic community and the African American community.. Never let them silence you. We have always been here and we will always be here 💕 stay strong

  • …"Can't do this alone
    We need YOU at home
    There's so much to SEE
    We know that you're STRONG…"
    From another one of their songs. I don't think songs are always only ever about an artist's life. Sometimes, they seem like direct statements to US at home. It looks like that a lot, with certain groups. Do you ever see it, too?

  • Just asking… how many are The Killers willing to sponsor? Way to NOT parody the media talking points. Y'all do Tokyo Rose proud! Please DO help these families stay together by helping them create a homeland that's the envy of the world! We aren't going to make a North /Central American "European Union" esque body, but perhaps the central American governments could ban together to fight what each lacks.
    Simply blaming America for the laws in the book as the cause of the hardships thousands of mile away isn't being "woke" it's being "drugged" into SAME-ISM as all the left hates about American policy put in place to care effectively for her own is decreed evil!
    How is it that a country acting responsibly in order to properly accomplish its FIRST mandate, care of citizens all, makes three United States evil? And, as that goal isn't to change, why would central and other North Americans NOT U.S. citizens want to be here and live amongst decadent us. Instead, please do as missionaries have done for centuries and do go to their homelands to better the lives of our peers in other countries, so the elderly mustn't be denied the opportunity to see their grandchildren and children, gk's parents, daily.
    Who will care for the elderly if countries can't give the youth a reason to stay?
    Please take the proceeds of this and other videos of this category nominated in the 8/26/2019 VMAs and help those in NORTH, CENTRAL AND SOUTH America who are NOT U.S. citizens. They want to live in their homeland. Truly, they do!
