The Real Reason The Regime Hates Jason Aldean’s New Song

On Monday, Nation Music Tv (CMT) confirmed it stopped airing Jason Aldean’s newly launched music video for his tune “Attempt That in a Small City.” Based on CMT and just about each company media outlet, Aldean’s tune is wildly racist and “pro-lynching.”  

It is a curious accusation, on condition that the tune makes no reference to race in any respect. As a substitute, it’s a rebuke of the left’s 2020 summer season of rage that, satirically, torched and looted numerous black neighborhoods and companies. It is usually a condemnation of “defund the police” activists and Soros-installed DAs who refuse to prosecute violent criminals in lawless blue cities — one thing else that occurs to have an outsized detrimental impact on minorities and low-income people. 

In his music video, Aldean flashes highly effective photographs (of largely white folks) committing crimes, screaming within the faces of stoic cops, and lighting cities on fireplace. To all these city looters and rioters, Aldean has a message: “That sh-t could fly within the metropolis. Good luck making an attempt that in a small city.” 

In different phrases, Aldean’s tune is an assertion that rural Individuals can and can defend themselves if confronted with the identical leftist political violence and chaos that has been unleashed on the metropolises. For the brand new woke world order to exist, the left wants the citizenry, and notably males, to be neutered (therefore why they label masculinity “poisonous”). 

Abled-bodied males are anticipated to face down when, for instance, a violent, deranged felony threatens to “damage anybody on this practice” within the New York Metropolis subway. If one dares intervene to guard these round him, he dangers extreme punishment. 

I do know Aldean is correct when he sings that small-town Individuals will defend themselves towards leftist criminals as a result of I’ve seen it. Once I did on-the-ground reporting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following the 2020 taking pictures of Jacob Blake, I witnessed males face off towards out-of-state Marxist rioters who sought to destroy their metropolis. 

Males stood on roofs and on the doorsteps of their properties and companies with baseball bats, handguns, semi-automatic rifles, and shotguns, able to defend themselves and their neighborhood, and it completely enraged the left. They’d favor Kenoshans have stood idly by and accepted their destiny by the hands of the sacred, protected class of woke arsonists and vandals as a substitute. 

‘Racism’ Costs Are a False Flag

Make no mistake, the “racism” accusations are a false flag. If the left cared about songs lionizing the deaths of black folks, they’d be protesting the music labels and radio stations that revenue from rap and drill music — genres that brag concerning the real-life murders of black youths.  

Selection Journal admitted its true gripe with the tune is “the way it conflates the act of protesting with violent crime.” Acknowledging and condemning the destructiveness of leftist insurance policies and activism is taken into account wrongthink. After quite a few deaths and billions of {dollars} in damages, Democrats nonetheless need us to imagine 2020 was a “summer season of affection” crammed with “largely peaceable” protests. Aldean’s music video reminds us that’s a bald-faced lie. 

Likewise, Individuals had higher not acknowledge the devolution of blue cities. This week, CNBC launched a rating of one of the best and worst states to dwell in. The highest 10 states had been all blue states, and the underside 10 had been all purple states. Democrats are desperately making an attempt to disclaim the truth that they’ve destroyed each metropolis and state they run. But all it is advisable to do is have a look at the large variety of city refugees presently fleeing Democrat strongholds in a mass exodus to know the left is working blue states and cities into the bottom. 

The Left Despises Rural America 

Tangential to the left’s hatred of males sturdy sufficient to withstand left-wing crime and political violence is their hatred of rural America. “Attempt That in a Small City” is not only a repudiation of big-city values, it’s a celebration of small-town values. “Attempt that in a small city. See how far ya make it down the street. ‘Spherical right here, we deal with our personal,” sings Aldean.

Rural America is by each metric freer than city America. Small-town Individuals are in a position to train their full Second Modification rights, can resist the acute laws and legal guidelines of big-city governments (this was notably true throughout Covid), and are far much less prone to the woke thoughts virus infecting cosmopolitan colleges, companies, and governance. Communities are additionally far stronger in rural America than in city America.  

A tune that praises the liberties loved by small cities with sturdy communal ties is deeply troublesome to the left. They like the citizenry be disconnected, feeble (each bodily and mentally), and obedient. In the meantime, their violence, which razes historical past and civilization, has a function: It enriches corrupt leaders who need to completely remodel our democratic republic right into a racially “equitable” neo-Marxist hellscape.

Because the racism accusations, Aldean has tried to defend himself and his tune. He’s going to be punished for his tune each monetarily and in misplaced awards and recognition as a result of he’s now a thought felony.

However he must cease. He doesn’t want to clarify himself to the left. He ought to lean into the criticisms and be happy with his tune. It’s an inventive rejection of the left’s horrifying targets and a logo of defiance. The Orwellian overlords need “Attempt That in a Small City” expunged from the airwaves as a result of Aldean is 100% over the goal.
