The NY Post claims — consider the source, and be skeptical — that Tom Morello is being canceled by his fans for being against Nazis. Tom Morello! Rage Against the Machine Morello! He said something on Twitter.
Rage Against The Machine rocker Tom Morello, 59, is getting blasted on Twitter for sharing an anti-Nazi quote…
Wait for it, w a i t for it…
…with fans accusing him of fascism and intolerance.
“Fans.” I don’t think actual fans would be mad at Tom Morello for being aggressively anti-Nazi. Have they listened to any of his music? Especially since this is the quote they found offensive.
German saying: If 9 people sit down at a table with 1 Nazi without protest, there are 10 Nazis at the table
Uh, yeah? That’s right. The people who are complaining are the “change my mind” folks. The debate bros.
“While that sounds principled, it isn’t,” one Twitter user wrote. “It’s a mechanism to stop conversation. 9 people can sit down at a table with 1 Nazi and talk and educate said single Nazi on the issues and the truth with evidence and convert that Nazi. It’s called diplomacy.”
“So do you think it’s impossible to politely converse with someone to change their mind?” another asked.
You can’t debate Nazis, full stop.
Hey, man, shouldn’t you go back to listening to Hootie & the Blowfish? Rage Against the Machine isn’t your jam.
