Triggering Left Wing Rednecks


It is a good thing when left wing rednecks are triggered.  You know, the wokesters and rainbow worshippers.  They were beside themselves when the music world erupted over the popularity of Jason Aldean’s song and video, “Try That in a Small Town.”  Lefty bloggers, commentators, the Legacy Media, liberal establishment, sundry elites, the entire ruling class, in its massive, Gordian complexity, reacted with righteous indignation and chest-thumping - and so soon after their favorite holiday season, Pride Month.  There were “dog whistles” aplenty, they claimed, but heard apparently only by them. We were told however that Aldean’s mild homily about small town values, was emitting secret code to white Christian nationalists, gun-toting vigilantes, QAnon conspirators, nativists, racists, and other future members of the forthcoming Fourth Reich.  It is understandably upsetting to long-suffering elites when they control 99% of the culture, yet small vestiges of rural, patriotic, country-music, church-going, MAGA America slips through.  

Sucker punch somebody on a sidewalk 

Carjack an old lady at a red light
Pull a gun on the owner of a liquor store
Ya think it's cool, well, act a fool if ya like

What’s all the fuss about?  Aldean is merely pointing out mainstream Democrat policy.  Democrats want criminals running free in their cities.  They voted in the Soros funded, catch-and-release DAs.  The criminal, street thug, and shoplifter are heroes of the Left. They, like BLM and Antifa, are their shock troops.  What they reject, however, are emissaries of white rural, small-town America standing athwart their revolution. 

Cuss out a cop, spit in his face

Stomp on the flag and light it up
Yeah, ya think you're tough

Well, try that in a small town

It wasn’t too long ago when the white working class, the farmers, miners, factory workers, and gunowners, were the base of the Democrat Party, the party of the “working class.”  Not now, no sir.  That switched with Barack Obama, the Manchurian “stealth” candidate, who took his party – and the nation – into full blown, neo-Marxist, identarian politics, the tribalization of American society along racial and other lines.  They promptly ditched the white working class for the new demographic known as “BIPOC,” “black indigenous people of color.” And, while at it, became the party of illegal aliens, criminals, terrorists, the lap-top class, elites, and super-rich in our cites and universities.  But no dirt under the fingernails for today’s Democrats. 

Around here, we take care of our own

You cross that line, it won't take long

For you to find out, I recommend you don't
Try that in a small town

The last thing the bicoastal, urban elites, want to be reminded of is that they live in a country where some 50% of the nation like this song.  The Left despises small town, rural America.  They want to reverse Khmer Rouge them into the cities where they can control them, and have them swear allegiance to LGBTQIA++, open borders, and globalism.  Oh, and the war in Ukraine.  Then mask and vaxx them.  No more nationalism, national culture, or, God forbid, a common language.  Gone.  Along with the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.  And the Bible.   

Jason Aldean lit a fuse in the minds of the Left.  They are unhappy that they must share a nation with a population that embraces such primitive notions.  Cloistered as they are in urban hot houses where only leftist flowers prevail, they despair that their grip on the nation is still tenuous and that everyone is not woke – like them.  

Try that in a small town

Full of good ol' boys, raised up right
If you're looking for a fight
Try that in a small town

The lefties complained bitterly about the images of the BLM riots in their summer of destruction when they burned down the country post George Floyd, the criminal drug addict who died of a fentanyl overdose.  What’s wrong with that?  Are there still defenders of BLM, an utterly corrupt organization?  Why shouldn’t they be exposed as the violent, grifting, cop-killing, Marxist hoodlums that they are?  

They also complained about the backdrop of the video outside the Maury County Courthouse in Columbia Tennessee, the site of a lynching in 1927.  They suggested that it may be … wait for it… “racist.”  

Can a liberal go more than a sentence without their favorite libel?  

It reminds us, however, that it is time to dispel the myth that the Left/Democrats are the voice and defenders of blacks.  The Democrat party has been the worst thing that ever happened to blacks, an unmitigated, ongoing disaster.  Apart from being the party of slavery, the confederacy, Jim Crow, and “separate but equal,” in the sixties, they unleashed “Great Society” upon the nation.  This now massive welfare system with its perverse incentives has devastated blacks.  It destroyed the black family, along with much of the conservative, church-going culture that prevailed among many blacks.  It led to soaring illegitimate childbirth, criminality, drug addiction, incarceration, and intergenerational poverty and dependency that plagues them to this day.  Thank the Democrats.

As a side note, it is also curious (but not surprising) that liberals, black or white, never live in black neighborhoods amongst the people they claim to represent.  No, no, noooo. Only the lily whitest neighborhoods for our earnest liberals.  Just ask the Obamas as they enjoy a glass of Chardonnay overlooking the ocean at their estate in Martha’s Vineyard. 

Got a gun that my granddad gave me

They say one day they're gonna round up
Well, that shit might fly in the city, good luck

Try that in a small town

No better way to trigger a left-wing redneck than to speak nostalgically about guns. Liberal city dwellers prefer that only criminals have them.  The critics also conveniently ignore the decades of “rap” music, of which they said nothing or spoke admiringly of, that outrightly glorifies gun violence, denigrates women, and espouses anti-cop hostility.  Such music has had a negative impact on young black males, prompting often aggressive, violent behavior.  Dozens of well-known rappers have themselves been victims of the gun violence their lyrics often extolled. But a mild, veiled throwdown from a country boy - now that’s a threat to the republic.

Then there is the matter of that dastardly pre-civilizational 2nd amendment. And the rest of the Bill of Rights, for that matter.  An 18th century construct.  All so retro and quite problematic for today’s urban progressive.  Traditional families, the Bible, Church, small town values, the 2nd amendment, no, it’s all got to go.  

The elites now loathe the working class, the former darlings and base of the Democrat Party, most of whom, but not all, are white.  Today’s Left, our urban elites, now worship the super-rich, the subsidized poor, and, of course - BIPOCS.  

But beyond that they despise whites, because they, after all, founded this country, the worst country in the world, racist to the core, and itself a product of colonialist, imperialist, and racist (white) Europe.  You know, the continent that gave us science, technology, democracy, human rights, and an incomparable corpus of art, music, and literature dating back to Greece and Rome.  And the likes of Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Shakespeare, Milton, and Goethe.  Then Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Volta, Boyle, Einstein, yes, all those problematic scientific geniuses that just happened to come from Europe - and to be white - such a petty annoyance for today’s leftist sophisticates.  

The Left has declared Jihad on whites and the middle class, especially as found in rural America, because a few too many of them are reflected in Aldean’s song - and by Obama’s famous “guns and bibles.”  And they, indirectly, represent the hated European, Judeo-Christian, Western (“white”) civilization, of which America is its finest exemplar, the one that gave birth to the greatest thinkers, composers, artists, writers, scientists, inventors the world has ever seen, responsible for the modern world - our air conditioning, antibiotics, cars, light bulbs, TVs, iPhones, the internet along with liberty and representative governance.  

Coincidentally, it is the very same racist (white) nations that everyone from around the world, black, brown, yellow, is flocking to – by the millions.  

 Sorry, no brag just facts.  And facts are the best way to trigger left wing rednecks. 

 But don’t try that in a small town.
