Now leftists are giving Toby Keith the Jason Aldean treatment over a 21-year-old song about beer and horses
When I was in high school, they made us subscribe to Newsweek in US History class. It was so that we could learn to keep up with current events. It was a more innocent time before I learned how deep corporate media bias and hackery went. Newsweek has since turned into a clickbait farm and the latest piece of content they created is about another "pro-lynching" country music anthem. Toby Keith's "Beer for My Horse." Yes, the song from twenty-one years ago.
The reason why we're here is because of Jason Aldean. I trust most of you are up to speed on the story, but here's the tl;dr. In May, Aldean released a song called "Try That in A Small Town." In July, he released a video. A few randos on social media claimed without evidence the video was racist, pro-lynching, and pro-gun. The media created content "reporting" that it was all those things. Middle America told them to suck it. We had a culture war. Now Aldean has one of the top songs in America.
Newsweek is reporting that the twenty-one-year-old Keith song is pro-lynching too. Their source for this is a lone TikToker who said so, calling on Gen Z to "put Toby Keith on blast." Because Newsweek is "reporting" something, other media outlets start reporting it as well.
"'Grandpappy told my pappy back in the day, son a man has to answer for the wicked that he done. Take all the rope in Texas, find a tall oak tree, round up all them bad boys, hang them high in the tree for all the people to see." What the f***?
"We got too many gangsters doing dirty deeds. We've got too much corruption too much crime in the streets. It's time the long arm of the law put a few more in the ground." Literally advocating for police violence and police killings.
Literally not doing any of that.
Let's set aside the first line quoted is sung by Willie Nelson and we here at the Louder with Crowder Dot Com website will not allow any Willie Nelson slander. The song is a Western. They aren't singing about 2020, or ever 2002 when the song came out. They're singing about the old west, or the mythology of it at least. Movies like Silverado and Young Guns, where Kevin Costner's and Emilio Estevez's characters were set to be hung at high noon for committing crimes. SPOILER: They're both cracker ass-crackers.
The sad thing is this isn't even new outrage. It's a reboot of 2015 outrage when Toby Keith performed the song on the Stephen Colbert Show. The Huffington Post lashed out at the performance, claiming the audience was clapping along to a pro-lynching anthem. Toby Keith wasn't amused:
The song was a hit and the words 'lynch' and 'racism' has never come up until this moron wrote this blog ... It's about the old West and horses and sheriffs ... and going and getting the bad guys. It's not a racist thing or about lynching.
I doubt Toby will pay any mind to this new outrage. He's got more important things to do, like recovering from cancer.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
