“WOKE Up” — RATM
The seditious naughties #Resistance band remobilizes to subvert Trump 2020. LoL!
It is a sad reflection of the warped moral mirror of our time that it is Che Guevara, the squalid, sadistic killer and totalitarian tyrant, who remains, more than four decades after his death, the iconic emblem of ignorant idealists like Rage Against The Machine, AOC, Bernie Sanders, Nicolás Maduro and myriad mindless twerps.
Yet Zack de la Rocha, Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commferford, the sulky socialists and ‘woke as funk’ hit squad who make up Rage Against The Machine (RATM), trumpet comrade Che (and Marx, Mao, Hồ Chí Minh, etc.) with no shame whatsoever. But whatevs — “it’s just anotha’ bombtrack,” ya know, “and suckers be thinkin’ that they can fake this.” Trump & Co. helm the new ‘Evil Empire’ and perhaps RATM can sell another 16 million records worldwide by ‘resisting’ the pro-laissez faire POTUS while promoting butcher-racist-homophobes like Che Guevara (read more about the punk bigot here) with scrappy sounds and anti-bourgeois lyrics like this:
The legendary 90s band has been politically triggered into reuniting ahead of the 2020 election in order to #resist four more years of President Donald J. Trump — perhaps the most anti-establishment, outsider, reactionary, iconoclastic capitalist leader in US history.
Rumors are swirling that the bombastic band will initially play three gigs “along or near the Mexican border,” according to Consequence of Sound (COS), where they will undoubtedly explain their silence when the Obama intelligentsia was called out by the ACLU for “separating families” and “sticking Mexican migrant kids in cages” (though Tom Morello, RATM’s prodigy guitarist, did accuse Obama of war crimes, and admitted in 2012 that he ‘drank the Kool-Aid’ when Obama was elected in 2008). They will no doubt canoodle with other ‘revolutionary leaders’ like the disgraced Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke, Julián Castro, and more Rio Grande-based counter-Trumpers. Antifa will be tickled, no doubt. Ilhan Abdullahi Omar and AOC will be ecstatic!
The ideologically woke band was also rather mum when it came to Obama’s systematic use of CIA drones to snuff out muj terrorists (‘repressed revolutionaries of color’) in Waziristan and cartel warlords and their sicarios in LATAM (‘freedom fighters for indigenous peoples’, of course — “People of the Sun”).
No matter. For the first time since 2011 the agit-prop bangers will convene on stage to super-charge the #resistance with their revolutionary political noise and obstreperous poetic virtue signalling, elevating egregious human rights violators like Che Guevara, Mao Zedong, and rando Zapatista rebels in an effort to topple Trumpism.
The socialist-narcissistic nonsense reverberating through the echo-chambers of music, media and politics seeks to nourish that nostrum called “resistance” to a culture that simply won’t admit darker outcomes of the ideas that RATM (along with Ernesto “Che” Guevara, Karl Marx, Noam Chomsky, etc.) propagate through their tribal telegraphing and evil ideology. A word of advice: resistance is futile. Absorb this.
The thrash-rap-rock band will initially play a trio of shows in El Paso, Las Cruses, Albuquerque, and Phoenix. Then they will skedaddle to Indio, California in April to headline the 2020 installment of Coachella, the oasis for wannabes, douchebags, trust fund brats and Trump coupsters.
Over the summer, Morello seemed to downplay the possibility of a RATM reunion. “I would say, rather than people waiting around for Rage Against the Machine, form your own band,” he told Heavy Consequence. “Let’s hear what you have to say. Get out there and do it. Don’t sit around twiddling your thumbs waiting for some other band to do it.” However, the forthcoming 2020 presidential election and high likelihood of Donald Trump winning a second term as the Leader of the Free World reportedly compelled the communist outfit to take urgent action.
Needless to say, the fact that RATM will effectively be cheerleading for the establishment swamp (and corporate interests), ignoring the CIA’s “evil ectoplasmic legacy” throughout Central and South America, and plugging the Deep State has not gone unnoticed. Fucking hypocrites, of course! But we still heart RATM and their ‘fist full of funk’ faux activism! And despite Che being the blood-lusting guerrilla poseur of the Cuban Revolution (“The Butcher of La Cabana” was his nickname) and RATM’s revolutionary mascot, he doesn’t look so evil emblazoned across Gisele Bündchen‘s tight little caboose on some lame LATAM designer’s catwalk (below) at Miami Swim Week.
