For all the hollow yip-yap you hear from chicken-chested urban white progressives about how we’re all human and how stereotyping is wrong and how poverty is the result of injustice and how the ultimate evil that any human group can commit is to demonize and dehumanize the cultural “other,” you never hear them shut the fuck up about how stupid and subhuman and detestable poor rural white Americans are.
Why, it’s almost as if they can’t help themselves. It’s almost as if any group needs to shit on some group of outsiders just to define themselves and maintain group identity.
The hashtag #RedneckASong is currently exploding on Twitter. In case it wasn’t self-explanatory, the premise is that you take a popular song and give it a new title in a way that demeans, stereotypes, and bashes those benighted rural whites whose chief crimes, apparently, are their skin color, economic status, and the unforgivable ideological sin of refusing to think the way that relatively rich white urban progressives insist they should think.
The hypocrisy of these people truly is unbelievable. The left have thrown their alleged support for the working man out the window in favor of a campaign of hatred against the men and women who built their country with their hands.
