In case you didn't know, Rage Against The Machine are a generally left leaning band. Meanwhile, UK broadcaster Nigel Farage is a generally right wing kind of guy. Farage is currently producing a podcast called “Farage Against the Machine” where he talks about political issues and takes a conservative stance. RATM is not too happy about the title of the podcast.
So, earlier this week, RATM sent a Cease and Desist letter to Farage via their attorneys. In that letter, they stated, "As you should know, RATM has publicly denounced the type of right-wing ideology you espouse for decades. Your anti-immigrant rhetoric, lack of social compassion and barely disguised racism and xenophobia are the antithesis of what RATM stands for. Thus, your surprising attempt to associate yourself with RATM is wholly inappropriate and completely inexplicable, unless it’s part of some kind of bizarre cleansing ritual. Whatever the motivation, please stop. Stop using RATM’s name and logo, change the name of your podcast and find some other target to troll. We suggest President Trump."
We'll let you know if anything else develops.
