Paul Ryan claims fondness for the music of Rage Against the Machine, a leftist, “peace-loving,” and union-backing grunge group. Ryan specified that the music — rather than lyrics — forms the attraction. For this, the band’s outraged lead guitarist (Harvard-educated) Tom Morello recently took to the pages of Rolling Stone magazine to denounce Ryan as “clueless.”
“Ryan is the embodiment of the Machine our music Rages against!” raved (Harvard-educated) Morello. “Paul Ryan’s love of Rage Against the Machine is amusing,” he continued. “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.”
Rage Against the Machine honor Che Guevara as their icon and fifth band member. ” We’ve considered Che a fifth band member for a long time now,” gushed (Harvard-educated) Tom Morello, “for the simple reason that he exemplifies the integrity and revolutionary ideals to which we aspire.” The Stalinist’ image appears on their amps and CD covers.
Let’s consider the two issues, and hope that (Harvard-Educated) Morello is merely “clueless” regarding Che Guevara. Otherwise he (and Harvard) have got some serious “splainin to do” as Ricky Ricardo used to tell “Looooo-cy!”
A Rock group (RATM) boasts that the central inspiration to their “irreverent” music and image is the co-founder of a Stalinist regime that outlawed Rock Music, Graffiti and “disrespect to authorities”–all under penalty of forced labor, torture and firing squad.
“Union activists” (RATM) have made central to their music and image a Stalinist who outlawed strikes under penalty of prison and firing squad.
“By no means can Cuban workers go on strike!” declared Cuba’s “Minister of Industries” (Che Guevara) on June 26, 1961. “Cuban workers must adjust to life a collectivist social order!”
“Peace activists” have made central to their music and image the boastful blusterer of the following:
“My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood!…Violence is inevitable! To establish Socialism rivers of blood must flow. The victory of Socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!”
(Harvard-educated) Tom Morello also professes immense pride in his black heritage. The icon on his guitar and amplifier went on record that:
“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and drink. The European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent…The negro has maintained his racial purity by his well known habit of avoiding baths.” The regime Che he-co-founded jailed and tortured the longest-suffering black political prisoners in modern history.

So who’s clueless here?
Why Paul Ryan of course, according to the media.
