Tom Morello

I'll Pay to Keep

Snowden in Hiding

Tom Morello's so pissed about the worldwide search for Edward Snowden that he's willing to foot the bill to help the man behind the NSA leaks escape the U.S. government.

We brought up the Snowden scandal to Rage Against the Machine's guitarist last night ... and he absolutely unloaded on the Obama administration, and recommended Snowden -- who's been charged with espionage and theft of government property -- never return to the U.S.

Morello explained, "I think he should live a happy life in Ecuador. That's what I think. I think he's a hero."

He added, "He exposed the crimes of the government. That we're all being spied on. all the time by the Obama administration? If anybody deserves to be in jail ... it's not Snowden."

Tom goes on to say he'll personally pay for Snowden's flight to South America -- and you've gotta hear his choice words for President Obama and his emails soliciting money.

Agree or disagree with him -- the guy is passionate.

Hi, Tom. Are you reading this? You're a piece of sh!t. You're a traitor to this country. Please more to Iran and kill yourself. You don't like America, so get out. Get out, or shut up, you despicable, phony-ass loser hypocrite.

Agree with Tom. Some people need to be in jail but Snowden is not one of them. He kept his oath to the constitution which supercedes any oath to the criminal administration.

You would think someone calling the Obama administration terrible would be something you right wingers could get behind?

This is why unless these people are seriously knowledgeable about issues they should just shut up. When I say these people I mean celebrities!!! Just shut up!!! In the end they always look like idiots and who knows once all the facts come out about this guy one way or the other. Until that happens he shouldn't have said a thing.

Just so everyone gets it clear Tom is a Harvard graduate and the son of an ambassador,he is more educated in political science &public policy than most politicians in our country.he has been fighting for the rights and civil liberties most Americans take for granted daily for the disenfranchised people here and all over the world.so do your homework before you call someone an uneducated and unpatriotic person,but then again the haters will always be hatin' i suppose.
