Anti-Vax Christian Rocker Says He’s Much More Revolutionary Than Rage Against The Machine

For many Conservatives, being anti-vax isn’t just about making an uninformed choice that puts them and their loved ones in danger, it is about them pushing back against the government.

Still, many anti-vaxxers have convinced themselves that they are doing something profound. Take John Cooper, for example. The leader of Christian rock band Skillet says his anti-vax beliefs make him more of a revolutionary than Rage Against the Machine.

Cooper said during a recent podcast, “What’s really weird to me is that I’ve been speaking out about my faith in Christ for a long, long time in the mainstream world. Now, let’s be honest — not everybody in the mainstream world is nuts about that. They don’t necessarily love hearing about Jesus, but they have always put up with me — some have supported me even.

You’re not allowed to speak anything against… I mean, you’ve got Rage Against the Machine telling people that if they don’t get a vaccine… Rage Against the Machine has become the machine. It’s crazy. I’m, like, wait a minute — I’m the revolutionary here? I’m the revolutionary and Rage Against the Machine is just ‘government rock’ now.”
