Tom Morello Says The Nazis And KKK Have “Unhooded Themselves” In The Oval Office


It should be of no surprise that Prophets Of Rage members Tom Morello (also of Rage Against The Machine) and Chuck D (also of Public Enemy) have some strong opinions on the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, VA that turned deadly last weekend and the way U.S. President Donald Trump has handled it. In a new interview with Uproxx, Tom Morello stated:

“We should be totally pissed off by what happened in Charlottesville and by what our president is saying. He is clearly on the record who he’s representing.”

Chuck D then added:

“He knows damn well there’s a contingent out there that he inspired and made rise with the rhetoric he was spinning in his campaign.”

Morello later offered:

“Resistance to injustice happened before Donald Trump, it’ll happen during Donald Trump, and it’ll happen after Donald Trump. So can it get worse? Of course it can get worse.”

“The Nazis and the KKK have unhooded themselves, because they’ve taken off the hoods in the Oval Office, so they feel more comfortable taking off the hoods in the streets.”

Chuck added:

“It’s very important that culture and music speaks its loudest as being a voice, because we can’t rely on government. Things don’t fix itself, we gotta make it happen.”

Prophets Of Rage will have their self-titled debut album out on September 15th.
