Raging Against The Democracy

American rock and rollers and musicians have finally taken an interest in the human right “abuses” going on in Cuba.
It took 50 years, but they have finally caught on.
They weren’t too concerned when [c]he [g]uevara, the t-shirt icon/serial killer, deemed Jazz and Rock and Roll the product of imperialist decadence and had them banned.
Mum was the song when [f]idel declared that music and all other forms of artistic expression were tools of the revolution, propaganda, when he decreed that “within the revolution everything and outside of the revolution nothing.”
When Cuban musicians were not allowed to record or have their music played on state radio because of their dissenting views, we heard the sounds of silence.
And you barely heard a whisper when Porno Para Ricardo’s Gorky was arrested for disturbing the dictatorship by playing his punk rock a little too loud and true for the regime in his sound proofed apartment.
But now, the freedom loving American Rock and Roll rebels are singing a different tune.

A campaign being launched today has brought together groups including Massive Attack and musicians such as Tom Morello, who played with Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave and is now on a solo tour. It will feature minutes of silence during concerts and festivals, said Chloe Davies of the British law group Reprieve, which represents dozens of Guantanamo Bay detainees and is organizing the campaign.

You see, on the 0.04% of Cuba that is governed by the rule of law, Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, the US authorities have been playing the rock and roll a little too loud for the terrorists detained in “club gitmo”. They don’t want their art to be used as weapons of mass disturbance.
Rather than concern themselves with why the Cubans on the other 96.96% of the island do not have freedom of expression or why there’s a mine field and machine guns to prevent Cubans from trading places with the tortured terrorist, they concern themselves with the quality of life of the well fed, well housed enemies of America.
Funny, I was writing this rant, it went in a totally different direction. I was going to try to point out the inconsistency of logic in the musicians, but I wound up realizing that their logic is actually consistent.
Not only have they not spoken out against the [c]astro regime, they have for the most part stood in solidarity with [c]astro in denouncing and protesting the American way of life. They have idolized [c]he, one of the most bigoted sensors of the 20th century, and now, like the regime did to Gorky, they want to silence the music that disturbs America’s enemies.
Here’s a quote of Tom Morello that explains why he would more concerned for the terrorists in Gitmo than for the long suffering Cubans on the rest of the island:

“America touts itself as the land of the free, but the number one freedom that you and I have is the freedom to enter into a subservient role in the workplace. Once you exercise this freedom you’ve lost all control over what you do, what is produced, and how it is produced. And in the end, the product doesn’t belong to you. The only way you can avoid bosses and jobs is if you don’t care about making a living. Which leads to the second freedom: the freedom to starve. ”
— Tom Morello, Guitar World

It’s easy to rage against a machine that was built to guarantee your right to do so. It so easy, anybody, even the clueless and the posers, can do it. But try raging against the regime like Gorky has, Tom. Morello had the chance to invite Gorky on stage when he played in Havana with Audioslave. He had a chance to stand up for human rights and against exploitation and oppression, but no, he only rages against democracies. It’s easy, painless and lucrative.
P.S. Note to the DHS: Serenade the terrorists with “Cat Scratch Fever” and a little “Wango Tango”, Ted Nugent won’t mind.

  1. OR
    It’s the craze gyration of the rock generation and it’s my motivation to avoid the nauseation, frustration, when I need some lubrication… baby!”
    Gotta love the Motor City Madman.

  2. This shit-for-brains doesn’t know what a subservient role in the workplace is. He should try working for practically zero pay in a freezing factory or a mine in communist Russia. He should spend a couple years in a re-education camp in Vietnam or China. He should spend a decade or two standing in line for a trolley bus in East Berlin while his cousin drives a Mercedes to work on the other side of the wall. But he couldn’t. Every day has to be a stage, with all the attention on him.
    Go fuck yourself, you wimpering coward.

  3. A fucking tool, uneducated and ignorant, a blithering idiot full of himself with nary a brain cell to detect. God I hate these motherfuckers.
