Tom Morello Accuses Obama Of War Crimes
Tom Morello has called Republican Paul Ryan a "jack--s", but also had harsh words for President Obama who he accuses of committing war crimes. The guitarist responded to questions about how Ryan is a big fan of Rage Against The Machine, but told Rolling Stone that Ryan just doesn't get it: "[Rage] is a band that casts the nets really wide, and that's part of the strength of the band. People are drawn to it by the music, the aggression, the rockingness of it, and then they're exposed to different ideas. Paul Ryan was a jackass before he listened to it, came out a jack--s at the end, so he missed a lot of it." It's not the first time Morello has slammed Mitt Romney's running mate, after previously saying Ryan was "the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades." Despite supporting Obama in 2008, Morello's opinion has changed: "I drank a little bit of the Kool-Aid initially," he said. "It looked different than any other president, sounded different than any other president and then he acted the same as all the other presidents. If you have war crimes on your record, and you still continue to suck at the corporate teat like he does my hopes were higher." If he's disillusioned with both parties, who will he vote for? He says it will come down to their policies on poverty. "Half the country is in poverty, kids are going hungry," he said. "But those people don't have a lobby, and they don't donate to the campaign in a way that they're going to get something back for it."
