How petty can the Left get?
Honestly, these people will search through a mountain of gold to find a small nugget of lead and declare the whole thing worthless.
What’s worse is that this perpetual negative audit of things is their entire goal. They seem to thrive on destroying things that they don’t agree with, even when those things are pieces of art.
Think about it…
Kevin Hart is one of the most beloved celebrities on the planet, but when he was tapped to host the Oscars, Liberals dug through his ENTIRE Twitter history to find the one time his comments could have been construed as “homophobic.”
Now, keep in mind, Kevin Hart is as Liberal as they come and they STILL wanted to cancel him over a perceived offense from over a DECADE before.
If they’ll go to those ends to cancel one of their own a decade after the words were uttered, can you imagine how hard they’ll dig to find dirt on a Conservative?
They will leave no stone unturned in their quest to bury anyone from the Right—and they’ll even make things up in order to do so.
And in the face of their cancel culture onslaught, many people and organizations bow to their demands. The Left holds some kind of power over them, and so most cultural figures and corporations will give in to whatever they want in order to avoid any kind of negative backlash.
But I call those people “cowards.”
Coming For Your First Amendment Rights
However, sometimes the cancelation effort comes after people who haven’t even done something controversial. In 2021, they’re now trying to cancel anyone that criticizes or makes fun of the Left in any way.
Take, for example, Aaron Lewis, a musician who alternated between a solo country music career and performing lead vocals for the rock band Staind.
Lewis is a pretty prolific songwriter and has been popular for years, but he’s also apparently been a closet conservative this entire time—and those conservative values were on full display in his song “Am I the Only One,” released just in time for the Fourth of July.
The song instantly shot up to the top of the charts, and even people who typically don’t like country music responded to it positively. Give it a listen for yourself HERE.
Did you hear how pro-America this song is?
Well, then it’s probably obvious to you why this song ruffled a few feathers on the Left side of the aisle.
This snippet from the end, coupled with the final chorus, has been particularly annoying to Liberals:
“Am I the only one who quits singin’ along
Every time they play a Springsteen song …
Am I the only one sittin’ here
Still holdin’ on, holdin’ back my tears
For the ones who paid with the lives they gave
God bless the U.S.A
I’m not the only one, willin’ to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue, burnin’ on the ground
Another statue comin’ down in a town near you
Watchin’ the threads of Old Glory come undone
I’m not the only one”
And of course, Lewis is right; he’s NOT the only one who thinks this.
But despite the countless people singing along with him, there are PLENTY of other people who are offended by these words—and because they’ve taken offense, they want the song banned and Aaron Lewis canceled by his record label.
Not Today, Thought Police
Music critic Bob Lefsetz wrote a blog on the piece and said, “It’s HEINOUS! This middle class, right-wing wanker has recorded a song that should have been played at CPAC, in between speeches by nitwits like Lauren Boebert saying to refuse the ‘Fauci ouchie.’”
Awwwww… sorry Bobby.
Lefsetz went on to say, “Why does Valory release such crap. Come on Scott Borchetta, David Geffen dropped the Geto Boys over their odious lyrics and now you’re marketing this junk? And for those who don’t know, all the execs idolize Geffen, and communicate and consort with him too. That’s his role today, elder stateman with a hand guiding all the players, young and old, Scooter Braun calls Geffen his rabbi and Jimmy Iovine doesn’t make a move without talking to Geffen first. You see Geffen made billions and they all want that money too. Come on Scott, get your head out of your rear end. How much money are you gonna make here anyway, and it is all about the money at this point, right?”
No, Bob… it’s about FREEDOM of speech.
You don’t like the song? Don’t listen! Change the station! Nobody is holding a gun to your head and making you listen – just like nobody is holding a gun to my head to listen to Cardi B.
Most people may have expected producer Scott Borchetta to bow down to the Leftist masses…but thank God he didn’t. Instead, Borchetta stood up for his artist and made a point about freedom in America.
Borchetta said, “Firstly, I believe in the First Amendment. My job has never been to tell my artists what to sing and write about. My job has always been about identifying unique talent with a unique voice and a unique point of view.”
He doesn’t play politics. If he did, maybe he wouldn’t have produced Sheryl Crow’s Leftist song, “Woman in the White House.”
Borchetta is apparently all about letting his artist BE artists—and that’s what being an American is all about: the FREEDOM to be who you are.
Borchetta went on, “Aaron Lewis and I have political disagreements. But there are also things we agree on. I think that’s the foundation for the idea of our country. It doesn’t work if we’re so divided that we can’t reach across the aisle, have a conversation or an argument, and ultimately, shake hands. If we can’t do that, and this moment is so divisive, we may never get our country back. To just ‘cancel’ (drop) Aaron is ridiculous and I’m disappointed that you would even suggest such a thing.”
Thank you, Scott Borchetta.
Thank you for standing up to the Liberal mob and reminding them of the country we live in.
This is America!
This is the land of the FREE! And we’re going to keep that way as long as we continue to put the importance of that freedom over anything and everything else – because without it, we’ll be EXACTLY what Aaron called us…
The land of the lost.
Not on our watch.
“One likes to believe
In the freedom of music
But glittering prizes
And endless compromises
Shatter the illusion
Of integrity” – Rush, Spirit of the Radio
