Tom Morello: Paul Ryan 'Is The Embodiment Of The Machine Our Music Rages Against'

Paul Ryan has previously cited Rage Against the Machine as his favorite band, but the group’s guitarist isn’t returning the niceties. In a blistering op-ed published Thursday night on Rolling Stone's website, Tom Morello blasts Mitt Romney’s new VP choice as “the embodiment of the machine our music rages against.”

In painting Ryan as antithetical to progress, Morello compares the Congressman’s appreciation of RATM to Charles Manson’s love for The Beatles and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s liking for Bruce Springsteen.

At the heart of Morello’s distate for Ryan is “his guiding vision of shifting revenue more radically to the one percent.” He goes on to say Ryan has plenty of “rage,” but claims its “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.”

    I feel like the Romney/Ryan ticket is the greatest lampoon in existence. There’s no way they can actually be serious.
