Patriotic rock band Madison Rising is firing back at rock artists such as Dee Snider of Twisted Sister and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine for their criticisms of the Mitt Romney presidential campaign for Mitt and his running mate Paul Ryan using their music on the campaign trail, suggesting that they are large beneficiaries of the capitalistic system embraced by the Republican ticket that has brought both musicians enormous personal wealth.
“I think American’s are getting really tired of the divisive undertones of all of these musicians and how they constantly attack anyone who supports the system they benefited from so much,” Rich Mgrdechian, Madison Rising’s manager, said in a press release. “It really is ironic how guys like Tom Morello, Bruce Springsteen, Dee Snider and all the other anti-American loudmouths have made an absolute fortune bashing capitalism. They clearly have no shame whatsoever. They’re capitalists, they’re artists, they’re musicians, they’re Americans – and so are we. The only difference is that we don’t try to hide it.”
