RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE Bassist Thinks ISIS Isn't Real & Neither Was The Moon Landing

The terrorist organization, not the band…

Rage Against the Machine bassist Tim Commerford is sure in the news a lot this week. Earlier in the week, he publicly apologized for his band inspiring "such bullshit" as Limp Bizkit, which one of our writers thought was a bit of a dick move. Now the full interview from which that excerpt was pulled has been made available on Rolling Stone, and would you believe that's not even the most controversial thing he said?

Commerford got going on politics and then without any provocation said this gem of a statement:

Like, ISIS? I don't believe ISIS is real. ISIS has been an inspiration for a lot of the songs that I wrote with Wakrat. I don't believe that all the different factions in the Middle East have gotten together and said, "OK, we all hate each other and we all hate America, so let's all put on the ISIS uniform and join forces and just become ISIS." That's a bunch of shit. I don't believe the Jihadi John beheading video. Go look at those videos and study them, and see if you don't think they're fake.

They're not real. They're high-def. They have a soundtrack. The parts of those videos that you couldn't fake are edited out. At first, I thought it was edited out by our government so our kids wouldn't be seeing it on the Internet, but no. That's the way those videos came. The knife starts to cut the neck, and then it fades out. There's too much stuff that doesn't look real. They've edited out the parts that would be too hard to fake. We created Jihadi John and ISIS so we can go drop bombs.

When asked what he thought happened to the people that ISIS claimed to kill in those videos, he stated they were already dead. When asked if this was a conspiracy by the U.S. government, Commerford responded:

Oh, I think it goes so much deeper than just the U.S. government. It's the same people that put presidents in office all over the world. It's a global conspiracy of people whose names we'll never know, but they're the ones who really run the show because they're the ones with the deepest pockets.

But it doesn't stop there. Commerford doesn't believe the moon landing was real and he even confronted astrounaut Buzz Aldrin about it once:

I got into it with Buzz Aldrin five years ago at a John Cusack movie premiere. There were a bunch of people gathered around, and I said, "I have a question: You have all these missions to the moon. How come there's no pictures of the flags on the moon?" He said, "Well, those are highly degraded by radiation by now." I said, "You left a lot of stuff on the moon. It seems that somebody with a telescope or satellite would snap a picture of that so we could see it. It'd be on the cover of every newspaper."

You could tell he was getting frustrated, and I asked him why he put a metal rod on top of the flag instead of just letting the flag out and do its thing. He gets all frustrated and says, "I'm just trying to remember what they told me to say." That's what he said! Those were his exact words! Then he and his wife — all plastic surgery-ed up and fake as they can be — bolted out, and I watched them walking down the street and he was just yelling at her. It made him so mad. There are so many different facets of the lunar landing that are just bullshit. It was such a powerful propaganda tool at the time.

I'm surprised Buzz didn't punch him like he has other reporters. But this man cannot be stopped.
