Rage Against The Machine Send Cease And Desist To Nigel Farage Over His ‘Farage Against The Machine’ Podcast


Rage Against The Machine have sent a cease and desist to controversial right wing politician, etc. Nigel Farage over his podcast, ‘Farage Against The Machine‘. The band are demanding he change the name of his podcast and had their attorney Howard King send the cease and desist, which featured choice words for Farage.

The Blast obtained a copy of said cease and desist  letter and shared some excerpts from it. In addition to the band arguing that Farage‘s podcast “brazenly and unlawfully exploits our client’s name and logo” and that “implication of any endorsement by our client of you or your policies is particularly abhorrent,” the letter also asserted that “RATM has publicly denounced the type of right-wing ideology you espouse for decades; in fact, that has been an integral part of the band’s identity and purpose.”

The band further went on to state: “Your anti-immigrant rhetoric, lack of social compassion and barely disguised racism and xenophobia are the antithesis of what RATM stands for. Stop using RATM’s name and logo, change the name of your podcast and find some other target to troll. We suggest President Trump.”
