I woke up early this morning and while going through my daily morning routine, I saw this gem plastered all over my twitter timeline (@Johnny_UT, btw.) I have always admired Tom Morello; from his musical talent to his outspoken support towards social injustice and the myriad of other causes he has backed. This is the icing on the cake though, hats off to you Tom for standing up and speaking out. Your courage is admirable. Rush Limbaugh is everything wrong with America and people like him are what’s destroying America. The recent hot water Limbaugh has got himself in lately is just one of many examples of Rush’s hypocritical, racist, misogynistic and hate-fueled behavior.
The partisanship in this country is a major reason for its dis-function and Rush Limbaugh is at the forefront of it all. He uses his radio show as a platform to plant his dangerous ideologies to anyone withing listening range. I had a conversation with the girlfriend not too long ago about how I wished Rage Against the Machine was still making music, especially in these tumultuous times. They were an important band (and one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen) and I feel like they could still do a lot of good if they were still together. Here’s hoping for a reunion.
