Guerrilla Radio
Rage Against the Machine Lyrics


Transmission third world war third round
A decade of the weapon of sound above ground
No shelter if you're lookin' for shade
I lick shots at the brutal charade
As the polls close like a casket
On truth devoured
A Silent play in the shadow of power
A spectacle monopolized
The camera's eyes on choice disguised
Was it cast for the mass who burn and toil?
Or for the vultures who thirst for blood and oil?
Yes a spectacle monopolized
They hold the reins and stole your eyes
Or the fistagons
The bullets and bombs
Who stuff the banks
Who staff the party ranks
More for Gore or the son of a drug lord
None of the above fuck it cut the cord

Lights out
Guerrilla Radio, turn that shit up
Lights out
Guerrilla Radio, turn that shit up
Lights out
Guerrilla Radio, turn that shit up
Lights out
Guerrilla Radio

Contact I highjacked the frequencies
Blockin' the beltway
Move on D.C.
Way past the days of Bombin' M.C.'s
Sound off Mumia gwan be free
Who gottem yo check the federal file
All you pen devils know the trial was vile
An army of pigs try to silence my style
Off 'em all out that box
It's my radio dial

Lights out
Guerrilla Radio, turn that shit up
Lights out
Guerrilla Radio, turn that shit up
Lights out
Guerrilla Radio, turn that shit up
Lights out
Guerrilla Radio, turn that shit up

It has to start somewhere, it has to start sometime
What better place than here, what better time than now?

All hell can't stop us now
All hell can't stop us now
All hell can't stop us now
All hell can't stop us now
All hell can't stop us now
All hell can't stop us now

"Robert Paxton, a professor emeritus of social science at Columbia University in New York who is widely considered the father of fascism studies, defined fascism as "a form of political practice distinctive to the 20th century that arouses popular enthusiasm by sophisticated propaganda techniques for an anti-liberal, anti-socialist, violently exclusionary, expansionist nationalist agenda."

"Other definitions, Paxton said, rely too heavily on documents that Mussolini, Hitler and others produced before they came to power. Once in power, fascists did not always keep their early promises. As the American Historical Association put it, speaking of fascism in Italy, "The proclaimed aims and principles of the fascist movement are perhaps of little consequence now. It promised almost everything, from extreme radicalism in 1919 to extreme conservatism in 1922."

FASCISM:

"a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized (AUTOCRATIC) government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition"

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fascism

AUTOCRATIC:

"pertaining to or of the nature of autocracy or of an autocrat; (ABSOLUTE):

https://www.dictionary.com/browse/autocratic

Absolute is defined as something that is 100 percent complete with no exceptions.

An example of (ABSOLUTE) silence would be (TOTAL) silence with no noise at all:

Trump said "When somebody's the President of the United States, the authority is (TOTAL) and that's the way it's gotta be."

https://youtu.be/FSXgkRFWUnY

Trump claimed that “numerous provisions” of the U.S. Constitution give him the power to open or close state economies, but he didn’t cite any specifically.

Legal experts said that the U.S. Constitution does not give Trump “(TOTAL)” power over the states, even during an emergency such as a pandemic.

States maintain police powers and the authority to set rules related to public health, such as social distancing and business closures.

"This red triangular identification badge was used to identify political prisoners in Nazi concentration camps."

"The Nazis persecuted Jews and other groups whom they considered to be against the regime or not belonging to the “Aryan race”. Each group of prisoners was identified by a different-coloured triangle: ...red for political opponents. This last category (red) included communists, persons who were active in resistance movements and individuals who openly opposed the Nazi regime."

"This classification system, which could vary slightly from camp to camp, was meant to facilitate the identification of prisoners."

https://museeholocauste.ca/en/objects/identification-badge-of-a-political-prisoner-nazi-camps/

"After 1939 and with some variation from camp to camp, the categories of prisoners were easily identified by a marking system combining a colored inverted triangle with lettering. The badges sewn onto prisoner uniforms enabled SS guards to identify the alleged grounds for incarceration."

"...political prisoners with red..."

https://encyclopedia.ushmm.org/content/en/article/classification-system-in-nazi-concentration-camps

"The Red inverted triangle was the badge that political prisoners in Nazi concentration camps had to wear. The Nazis chose red because the first people to have to wear it were Communists. Besides Communists, liberals, anarchists, Social Democrats, Freemasons, and other opposition party members also wore a red triangle. Many red triangle wearers were interned at Dachau concentration camp."

https://military.wikia.org/wiki/Red_inverted_triangle

"In a 2001 study sponsored by the International Committee of the Red
Cross (ICRC) the authors make the following assessment of the ratio of military to civilian deaths in modern wars: The research reveals, in essence, that modern wars have
become conflicts without limits. Civilians have—both intentionally and by accident been moved to center stage in
the theater of war, which was once fought primarily on battlefields. This fundamental shift in the character of war is illustrated by a stark statistic:"

"in World War I, nine soldiers were killed for every civilian life lost. In today’s wars, it is estimated that ten civilians die for every soldier or fighter killed in battle."

GEORGIA JOURNAL OF INTERNATIONAL AND COMPARATIIVE LAW (DO NOT DELETE) 8/28/2013 11:44 AM

"Among all troops who participated in the survey, about 35 percent saw the problem of white nationalism as a significant threat to the country. That’s higher than the total troops who see Syria (24 percent), Afghanistan (13 percent) or immigration issues (23 percent) as a serious national security issue."

Rage Against The Machine - Guerrilla Radio

Transmission third world war third round
A decade of the weapon of sound above ground
No shelter if you're lookin' for shade
I lick shots at the brutal charade
As the polls close like a casket
On truth devoured
A silent play in the shadow of power

What better place than here, what better time than now?

All hell can't stop us now



Александр Мазин

"Элита страны - креативный класс
Восстал против быдла и серых масс.
Бастуют поэты, бунтуют писатели,
Менеджеры и зиц-председатели.
Кричат художники, машут плакатами,
Хипстеры с новенькими ай-падами
Постят в блоги, строчат комментарии,
Проклиная тупых пролетариев.
Друг-друга снимают на говнозеркалки.
Здесь же борцы старой закалки:
Правозащитники всех мастей,
Пострадавшие от произвола властей
Жертвы карательной психиатрии,
Борцы за свободу (Москвы от России).
Гордо реет над головами
Символ нашей победы - белое знамя!" (с) Cannibal bonner :)
