    Default Rage Against the Machine Guitarist Tom Morello Calls Paul Ryan 'Clueless

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/ear...morello-363686

    In a blistering Rolling Stone op-ed, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello slams Paul Ryan for naming the anti-establishment, hard-rock group as one of his favorite bands.

    Rage Against the Machine Guitarist Tom Morello to Release 'World Wide Rebel Tour' Documentary (Video)
    "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," Morello writes. "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."

    What an idiot. Let me get this straight, if the guy is a fan of your music, you're going to fault him for it?

    it is an interesting choice of bands for Ryan to list as a favourite considering the politics of the band. Be kind of like a right wing Christian candidate listing Jenna Jameson as his favourite actress.

    Politics and music should never mix.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    I don't find it that weird at all considering I still listen to Rage's first two albums and am definitely not a Democrat. Hell I bought that album the first week it came out while being in the Navy and turned quite a few people onto it. I have a few of their songs currently in my jogging playlist along with NWA who definitely are not card carrying members of the Grandma killing coalition. I knew from day one that RATM beliefs are not typical of the being conservative or libertarian. However I like their music and think that Tom Morello is one of the last unique guitarists.

    People think that conservative people only listen to religious or country music. They are much more complex. However in our polarizing world today, its not surprising that people think this. Hell Sarah Palin loves Van Halen even though Eddie has hosted Democratic fundraisers at his house. They sing about fornication and partying yet Sarah loves listening to their music while staring at Russia

    You couldn't just say he's a democrat?

    You had to throw in the homophobic (or whatever weird slur nut hugger is) stuff as well in an effort to point out that Morello has a different opinion from you, which no doubt makes him one of them there fancy boys.

    Good of you to stop short of pointing out the Morello is a "darkie" as well. Ya know, just like the nut hugger President.


    I'm guessing after you hit "Post Quick Reply" you sat back and spit into a tin.

    How about you stop being sensitive smurf. Way to go taking my words out of context. You want to start slandering people bring that shit. It was neither a homophobic or a slang context. It's a well documented fact that morello is a democrat. That's it. And any republican that he dislikes he talks shit. Look it up. Get your facts straight before you start calling people out asshole.

    You can't make a point without throwing in some sort of slur to put an exclamation on your intelligence?

    Hey you started it. Spitting? As if I'm some redneck with minimal intelligence which isn't the case but think what you want. I could care less. You wanna call someone out because you don't agree with it don't be surprised of the response. And especially in an insulting manner. You done or you want to keep going?

    No I can keep going for awhile.

    Since we have established you aren't a redneck of minimal intelligence, perhaps you can explain why the term "nut hugging" was a neccasary addition to your previous post.

    Reel it in guys. Brett's real damn close to pulling the plug on this place, and I don't think he cares what forum the B.S. is happening in.
