Rage Against the Machine Bassist Tim Commerford: “ISIS Isn’t Real”



Earlier this week, we commended Rage Against The Machine bassist Tim Commerford for apologizing publicly for inspiring Limp Bizkit. It’s hard to be a man and apologize for your wrongdoing, but Tim was good about taking the blame on himself, and we were happy for him.

…buuut Tim also had some things to say to Rolling Stone  about terrorist group ISIS, which he believes is fabricated to inspire military support among various nations. Yeah, dude went full Matt Pike.

Here’s Tim:

“I don’t believe ISIS is real… ISIS has been an inspiration for a lot of the songs that I wrote with [his new band] Wakrat. I don’t believe that all the different factions in the Middle East have gotten together and said, ‘OK, we all hate each other and we all hate America, so let’s all put on the ISIS uniform and join forces and just become ISIS.’ That’s a bunch of s–t. I don’t believe the Jihadi John beheading video. Go look at those videos and study them, and see if you don’t think they’re fake.”

“They’re not real. They’re high-def. They have a soundtrack. The parts of those videos that you couldn’t fake are edited out. At first, I thought it was edited out by our government so our kids wouldn’t be seeing it on the Internet, but no. That’s the way those videos came. The knife starts to cut the neck, and then it fades out. There’s too much stuff that doesn’t look real. They’ve edited out the parts that would be too hard to fake. We created Jihadi John and ISIS so we can go drop bombs.”

Ho boy. There’s also stuff about the moon landing, if this kind of reptile overlord shit gets you off. You can read it here.

Well, there you have it. Am I terribly surprised that the bassist of a politically-obsessed band believes that a destructive terrorist group is actually a government fabrication? Not terribly. Of course, Tim doesn’t get into the fact that anyone with a cell phone and a laptop can make a hi-def video with a soundtrack any day of the week.

It’s just a shame — Tim was doing so well, hating on Fred Durst and his ilk. Now, he’s making us wonder if he has a bunker full of tin foil hats somewhere.

We’ll let you know if the Bildeberg Group has Commerford assassinated in the near future.
