RATM Bassist: ‘ISIS And Moon Landing Aren’t Real!’ [News]

Rage Against the Machine bassist Tim Commerford said he doesn’t believe ISIS is real, claiming that “we created” the militant group “so we can go drop bombs.” Also, the Moon landing never happened in his book.

He tells Rolling Stone : “I don’t believe ISIS is real. ISIS has been an inspiration for a lot of the songs that I wrote with [new band] Wakrat .

“I don’t believe that all the different factions in the Middle East have gotten together and said, ‘Okay, 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.”

The musician further explained: “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.”

Asked about what he thinks happened to people who ISIS killed in the videos, Tim replied: “They were already dead.”

On whether he thinks the US government is behind ISIS: “Oh, I think it goes so much deeper than just the US 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.”

Branding himself a “conspiracy theorist,” Tim soon focused on the Moon landing, saying: “We didn’t go to the moon. We never went there. My dad worked for NASA on the Apollo missions, and I’ve always felt it’s been fake since I was a kid.

“The one thing I always questioned: We put the flag on the moon. Why did we put a metal rod on the top of it? Why wouldn’t we just plant it into the moon’s surface and have the astronaut pull it out and let it go and we can watch it do its dance on the moon? It would’ve been an image we couldn’t have faked and one that we would have never forgotten.”

And he even got to share a few words with Buzz Aldrin about it. He said: “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.”
