All That Remains’ Phil Labonte: “Tom Morello Is A Communist And A Fool”


All That Remains frontman kept it short and sweet with his assessment of Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello. Speaking on Morello‘s recent scathing op-ed piece regarding Republican Vice Presidential hopeful Paul Ryan, Labonte, a staunch libertarian himself, stated:

Tom Morello is a communist and a fool. He’s also had the wool pulled over his eyes by the system.”

Labonte and God Forbid guitarist Doc Coyle eventually wound up discussing the subject on Twitter. That conversation saw Labonte later clarify his statement, offering:

“I’m not saying he’s dumb, I’m saying he’s a fool for the statist perspective that our government is good w a democrat is in office.”
