Tom Morello: Paul Ryan is the Machine
Posted 19 August 2012 - 11:19 AM
Paul Ryan's love of Rage Against the Machine is amusing, because he is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades. Charles Manson loved the Beatles but didn't understand them. Governor Chris Christie loves Bruce Springsteen but doesn't understand him. And Paul Ryan is clueless about his favorite band, Rage Against the Machine.
Ryan claims that he likes Rage's sound, but not the lyrics. Well, I don't care for Paul Ryan's sound or his lyrics. He can like whatever bands he wants, but his guiding vision of shifting revenue more radically to the one percent is antithetical to the message of Rage.
I wonder what Ryan's favorite Rage song is? Is it the one where we condemn the genocide of Native Americans? The one lambasting American imperialism? Our cover of "fug the Police"? Or is it the one where we call on the people to seize the means of production? So many excellent choices to jam out to at Young Republican meetings!

Morello's attack on "the system" is just another thinly-veiled attack on capitalism by a man who indisputably succeeded in life because of capitalism.
Bill Gates should start a club for these guys.
It should be called:
What happens when the presented anti-establishment becomes its own establishment due to success
A common tale
...and rage f8cking rocks
