I wonder what Ryan’s favorite Rage song is? Is it the one where we condemn the genocide of Native Americans? The one lambasting American imperialism? Our cover of “Fuck the Police”? Or is it the one where we call on the people to seize the means of production? So many excellent choices to jam out to at Young Republican meetings! Don’t mistake me, I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta “rage” in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically the only thing he’s not raging against is the privileged elite he’s groveling in front of for campaign contributions.

That’s like saying, I love Alice in Chain’s “Man in a box”, but I hum the lyrics when it says, “Deny your maker.”
And yet, it really doesn’t help that every conservative I know absolutely loves … I mean adores … everything secular. That’s to say sex, rock-n-roll, love and science. It’s just that they can’t stand it in public when they’re cheering for their team.
Whatever that means.
