Rage Against The Machine, once a popular dissident rock band, posted a short Twitter thread Friday evening proving once again that these days it’s in the business for raging for the machine — namely the liberal Democrat Party machine.

In the Twitter thread, the band echoed the Democrat Party’s every talking point regarding Kyle Rittenhouse, who was acquitted earlier that day on the grounds that he’d acted in self-defense against the three violent extremists he’d shot.

“What defines innocence in America? Tamir Rice was executed for playing with a toy. Nobody was charged. Ahmaud Arbery went jogging and was murdered in broad daylight. Rittenhouse armed himself and killed people who were fighting for racial justice. He claimed self-defense,” the band wrote.

“This is the settler logic of America’s founding myth: whiteness must cast itself as the victim in order to justify its violence against those resisting its oppression. Welcome to the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave.”

Notice the use of meaningless “woke” buzzwords like “settler logic,” “whiteness” and “oppression.”

View the thread below:

In the case of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, concerned citizens reported him to police on Nov. 22 of 2014 after spotting him seemingly waving around a gun. When the authorities arrived, they told him to raise his hands, but instead he moved as if about to draw a gun. One officer opened fire, killing him. After carefully reviewing the evidence, a grand jury declined to indict the officer who’d opened fire.

Learn more about the evidence below:

Note also that the gun he’d been spotted holding was quite large.

Look:

In the case of Ahmaud Arbery, the men who allegedly murdered him last April are all currently on trial and could very well be convicted.

He was fatally shot by the defendants when, while trying to question him about some local burglaries that he was suspected of having committed, he allegedly attacked them.

Because the defendants are white and Arbery is black, there’s been a general assumption by many that he was gunned down because of racism.

However, video evidence does seem to corroborate the defendants’ claim:

Rittenhouse’s case instead involved a 17-year-old teen showing up during the Kenosha riots in 2020 to provide medical aid and protect businesses.

While doing just that, he was first threatened with death by a left-wing extremist and then later chased by this same extremist.

Video footage showed that he opened fire at the last moment as the extremist was about to catch up to him and presumably hurt him.

He then tried to flee to the police to report what had happened, but instead he was chased by three more extremists. At some point, he tripped and fell, and the extremists began attacking him. He opened fire, killing two and injuring a third.

Despite the evidence being on his side and a jury of his peers acquitting him, the entire establishment left has and continues to maintain that he’s guilty of murder.

And as Rage Against The Machine’s latest tweet storm makes clear, the former dissident band clearly now has a vested interest in fighting for the establishment — not against it:
