Ryan claims that he likes Rage’s sound, but not the lyrics. Well, I don’t care for Paul Ryan’s soundorhis 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 “Fuck 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!
Don’t mistake me, I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta “rage” in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically the only thing he’snotraging against is the privileged elite he’s groveling in front of for campaign contributions.
Tom Morello takes Paul Ryan to school for claiming Rage Against the Machine is his favorite band.
[makes mental note to not cross Tom Morello]
It’s like we (Republicans and Democrats) come from two different planets.
I’m glad I don’t live on Planet Republican.
The views expressed were offensive. Rape is rape. … What I think these comments do underscore is why we shouldn’t have a bunch of politicians—a majority of whom are men—making health care decisions on behalf of women.
