Contrary to what has been claimed, Rage Against the Machine did have a more than casual relationship with the RCP, although actual membership in the RCP is not verified. Maximum Rock&Roll became notorious for repeating warmed-over RCP rhetoric. RCP's line on the L. A. riots and the Denny case was a source of disgust. — Unsigned, by: / talk

Source it. From my reading, RCP hosted events, either solo or as part of a coalition, at which various bands including ratm have played. That is a casual relationship. RCP claiming further affiliation with bands as a publicity stunt is not a valid source. For the rock and roll mag, again, source it or it goes. If you're going to call out bands, or random magazines no one has heard of, source it. You are posting so much content here, with specific details that, apperently, do in fact need to be checked for accuracy, its a pain in the ass to keep up with. Any strange claims in your edits, source it, or I'm either re-writing it, or removing it. ROPChain (talk) 10:55, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
RCP's "coalitions" throughout the 90s were front groups. They were too sectarian to enter into any real coalition. Here's a valid source relating guitarist Tom Morello's adoption of the RCP's pet cause, the Shining Path guerilla movement in Peru. Larry Livermore is a living historical source if you care to contact him. For me, memories of the exchanges between Livermore and RCP-affiliated writers for MaximumRockNRoll suffice.

Failed AfD, by a drive-by weirdo[edit]

This page is worse than useless. This belongs on some cranky mouth-breather's personal blog that no one reads. This is just unbelievable. — Unsigned, by: Jhed / talk / contribs

That's...That's not how AfD works. RoninMacbeth (talk) 03:27, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

Refuse Fascism[edit]

The RCP has recently had success with their "Refuse Fascism" campaign. I was unaware that the two were linked until relatively recently.

I think this deserves mention, because they Refuse Fascism group is MUCH more visible than the RCP members themselves at this point, at least in my own experience. Jt7959 (talk) 20:22, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

I am going to read up the New Synthesis book and write something about it.— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

This page[edit]

is filled with more snark than anything of actual substance. Typical liberal bullshit as usual, but it doesn't even try to point out problems with the organization in terms of ideology, is it a personality cult? Practically speaking yes, but is it as dangerous or as bad as Neo-Nazi cults and shit? No, that's just false equivalency. Oxyaena Harass 21:00, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
