Link only - Rage Against The Machine Guitarist Tom Morello Coming To Wisconsin: 'Madison Is The Next Cairo'
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. His father was a Kenyan participant in the Mau Mau Uprising, and served as Kenya's first ambassador to the United Nations. Morello's paternal uncle, Jomo Kenyatta, was the first elected president in Kenyan history. His parents met in August 1963, while attending a pro-democracy protest in Nairobi, Kenya, and Morello was conceived the first night they made love in a hut. After discovering her pregnancy, Mary returned to the United States with Njoroge in November, and married in New York City.
This is rich— LOL!!
a GUTAIRIST to the RESCUE!!!
If only Cairo had had a guitarist! maybe they Hosni would have left in 17 days instead in 18 days!!!
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.

B. I have busted more hippies' noses than all the narcs in the free world. - Ted Nugent
The people have spoken, they want the bloated unions cut down a notch. The unions are just another pack of leftwingers in the minority demanding more then they deserve.
“Why arent 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.
I hope he plays:
“...Walker like an Egypitian...”
I love that one.
Then get Steve Martin to do a rendition of “King Scott...”.
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.
It makes you wonder... at what point will he realize that he is part of The Machine?
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...)
Governor Walker should kindly tell Tom, “F You I won’t do what you tell me!”
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'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."
This turd is a complete hypocrite... a capitalist-lover hiding behind a power-to-the-people facade.
Wonder how long it will be before his Commie loving buddy Zach De La Rocha makes an appearance too?
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.
“Respectful of their musical abilities, I don’t waste much time considering the political analyses by guitarists.”*
*EXCEPT FOR THE NUGE.
And then repeat it 15 times getting louder each time
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.
I hope not... because Cairo is the next Beirut.
