‘Madison Is The Next Cairo’?? Huh?

It’s the next target of the Muslim Brotherhood? It’s the next third-world hell hole where nothing works? What in the world is he talking about?

Well, I can’t say, “Shut up and sing,” since “singing” certainly doesn’t describe what he does. How about, “Shut up and beat your head against the floor?”

Wednesday Wayne Newton, Thursday Bon Jovi (2 shows), Friday Joan Rivers, and Saturday - the guy who spins plates on sticks at the Tommy Bartlett Water show in Wisconsin Dells. Dieter what’s-hi-name. Tasso? Yes, ladies and gentleman - I give you Dieter Tasso!

With celebs like Morello (who?), the protests against Walker have jumped the shark.

Typical lazy-ass Marxist union leeches. A week+ now of blowing off work without being fired, faking doctors notes, generally not doing the job they’re ostensibly being paid for, and now attending free concerts while they’re AWOL and effectively shutting down the schools. All on the taxpayer’s dime. Mob rule with free leftard entertainment, and the citizens of Wisconsin are footing the bill.

Oh, yeah, Madison really is the next Cairo. Just think of all those Madison residents surviving on $2.00 per day like in Egypt. What a genius! This guy needs to stick to playing his guitar.

If the dude has the urge to rage against the machine he should join the anti-union forces.

The band should change its name to Rage to Protect Big Government.

Oh, my. One of the self-styled "mighty renegades" is now just another government shill. How they have fallen. Bet he's just another shuffling, fat, dishevelled white person now.

Since the Prehistoric ages and the days of ancient Greece
Right down through the Middle Ages
Planet earth kept going through changes
And then the renaissance came, the times continued to change
Nothing stayed the same, but there were always renegades
Like Chief Sitting Bull, Tom Paine
Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X
They were renegades of their time and age
The mighty Renegades

Phhfffttt. Pathetic.

Kenya connections: (Wonder if his daddy knew Obam Sr.?)

Tom Morello was born on May 30, 1964, in Harlem, New York, to Ngethe Njoroge and Mary Morello. He is of Irish and Italian descent on his maternal side, and Kikuyu Kenyan descent on his paternal side. His mother was a schoolteacher from Marseilles, Illinois, who earned a Master of Arts at Loyola University, Chicago and travelled to Germany, Spain, Japan, and Kenya as an English language teacher between 1957 to 1963.[2] His father was a Kenyan participant in the Mau Mau Uprising, and served as Kenya's first ambassador to the United Nations.[3] Morello's paternal uncle, Jomo Kenyatta, was the first elected president in Kenyan history.[3] His parents met in August 1963, while attending a pro-democracy protest in Nairobi, Kenya,[4] and Morello was conceived the first night they made love in a hut.[4] After discovering her pregnancy, Mary returned to the United States with Njoroge in November, and married in New York City.

Sedition is all the rage now. Those who would arrest them are supporting it on a federal level. If this administration can ignore a federal court ruling that a law is unconstitutional, if they can pass legislation without anyone reading it, if they can deem a law to have been passed rather than vote on it, if they can refuse to submit a budget as required by law, as they did last year, then it is obvious the Constitution means nothing to them.

The solution is the Tea Party Movement and everyone’s involvement in it.

Cool. Then the Tea Party should send our rock n roll ambassador, Ted Nugent, to meet him at the airport. I wonder which of the following Ted Nugent quotes is Tom Morello's favorite:

A. The war is coming to the streets of America and if you are not keeping and bearing and practicing with your arms then you will be helpless and you will be the victim of evil. - Ted Nugent

B. I have busted more hippies' noses than all the narcs in the free world. - Ted Nugent

“Why aren’t these people getting arrested?”

It’s what they desperately want. The whole point of this is to try to generate images for national television of the evil Scott Walker calling out the state police and/or national guard to clear out the mob. They want to depict Walker as a fascist that way.

Clearly Walker is much too smart for that. He knows that if he just waits a couple of weeks, almost all of the crowd will get bored and go home, particularly if the weather turns really nasty. The national news media will then lose interest, and any professional radicals can then be rounded up.

Please, definitely do come, and bring as many of your friends as possible, poor-mouthed Ivy League musical propagandist. The more in the open you guys are, the easier it is for everyone to see what you’re all about and reject you wholeheartedly. Please also scream a lot, and act feral. Maybe get a chant going, link arms, ignore the law, and ignore lawful directions from peacekeeping officers. And be sure to tour the inside of a few Wisconsin jail cells and leave clever graffiti scratched in.

These guys are sooooo 15 years ago. When’s the last time they had a hit album? Oh yeah, and I can’t understand what the frig they are ‘singing’ whenever I’ve heard them, which is thankfully not much.

(BTW, you want rocking tunes, check out Muse. Now there’s some guitar action...)

From the article, ---- "I really think that the future of the rights of working people in this country is not going to be decided in the courts," he said. "It's not going to be decided in Congress or radio talk shows. The future of rights of working people in this country will be the fight on the streets of Madison, Wis. "

Idiot.

Along about the time the 60's crowd realizes they can no longer trust themselves, since they're over 30.

Which is to say, never. They're so cute when they're clueless.

Tom Morello: "I'm going to Madison to be a renegade and protest against the Man, man."

Tom's agent: "First I need to check your contract, talk to your lawyers, call your union rep and give the boys in Nashville a call. I'll get back to you and let you know if they'll all sign off on it, babes."

He could have just as easily said "the next Greece" since it's clear he doesn't know the difference ... possibly even their geographical location as well.

Respectful of their musical abilities, I don't waste much time considering the political analyses by guitarists.

Yeah, it just goes to show that their primary motivation is nothing more than whining, complaining, and self-centered public displays.

Government workers are the epitome of The Machine. And while state government is necessary for public order, they are the top of the power structure. Perhaps Tom needs to change the name of his band to Rage Against The Taxpayers.
