The feeling isn’t exactly mutual, as a brutal op-ed in the latest Rolling Stone by Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello makes clear:
Paul Ryan’s love of Rage Against the Machine is amusing, because he is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades. …
I wonder what Ryan’s favorite Rage song is? Is it the one where we condemn the genocide of Native Americans? The one lambasting American imperialism? Our cover of “F**k the Police”? Or is it the one where we call on the people to seize the means of production? So many excellent choices to jam out to at Young Republican meetings!
Don’t mistake me, I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta “rage” in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically the only thing he’s not raging against is the privileged elite he’s groveling in front of for campaign contributions.
Once upon a time, this picture came out of an event that Kelley did with some children. Someone on tumblr (I forget who—message me if you know!) saw Kelley being a boss in her police-style aviators and dubbed her Officer KO. It’s a great nickname, because it just keeps on giving. Kelley fouls someone? POLICE BRUTALITY! Kelley yells for her teammates on the field? OFFICER KO, CALLING FOR BACKUP! Kelley eats a doughnut? The jokes write themselves, people.
