Toby Keith Hits Back at Accusation Song Is Pro-Lynching
Friday, August 08, 2008
Toby Keith hit back at a recent blog post that derided his 2003 song "Beer for My Horses" as a pro-lynching anthem.
"The song was a hit and the words 'lynch' and 'racism' has never come up until this moron wrote this blog," he said, according to ContactMusic.
The country singer, 47, was on "The Colbert Report" last month to perform "Beer for My Horses," the popular song that inspired a movie of the same name.
Huffington Post blogger Max Blumenthal called the song an "ode to lynching" and said that "Colbert's studio audience clapped to the beat, blithely unaware that they were swaying to a racially tinged, explicitly pro-lynching anthem that calls for the vigilante-style hanging of car thieves and other assorted evildoers."

I think the video reveal Keith portraying a law enforcement official and Nelson his father and a retired law enforcement official. But actually, it is.....a SONG...for entertainment....it is a makebelieve song......they are not really advocating,,,in real life....hanging people.
Oh STFU idiot!
I am so sick of this crap.
Country songs that call for justice = reactionary.
The only thing idiots like Blumenthal do is create an audience for the movie.

A term tied very closely to postmodernism, deconstructionism is a challenge to the attempt to establish any ultimate or secure meaning in a text.
Basing itself in language analysis, it seeks to “deconstruct” the ideological biases (gender, racial, economic, political, cultural) and traditional assumptions that infect all histories, as well as philosophical and religious “truths.”
Deconstructionism is based on the premise that much of human history, in trying to understand, and then define, reality has led to various forms of domination - of nature, of people of color, of the poor, of homosexuals, etc.
Like postmodernism, deconstructionism finds concrete experience more valid than abstract ideas and, therefore, refutes any attempts to produce a history, or a truth.
In other words, the multiplicities and contingencies of human experience necessarily bring knowledge down to the local and specific level, and challenge the tendency to centralize power through the claims of an ultimate truth which must be accepted or obeyed by all.
I heard Toby Keith on Glenn Beck the other day.
The irony here; Toby Keith is a democrat and supports Obama. He likes McCain, too....”We have two of the best candidates in years” running for office, he quipped on Glenn’s show.
You are right Keith is basically a DLC type - good on guns and the troops but other than that he leans to the left.
“Another case of the “bitter” liberal elite pontificating on something of which they know less than nothing.”
Of course they know less than nothing about it. The song is about justice for the victims and we all know that justice is only for the “alleged” criminal. Don’t you know that victims are not really victims but deserved anything that happened to them? /sarc
But songs by Snoop Doggie Poop and Ludacrisp are anthems for the delusional left
What did Reagan say its not that libs are ignorant its that they know so much that isn’t so.
Blumenthal is just scared of real men who don’t live in Mom’s basement and wear jammies all day.
Maybe Blumenthal ought to dust off his Dixie Chicks CD and take a listen to “Goodbye Earl.” I think he’d find the vigilante theme there for sure. Doubt he will get that upset about it, though.
I’ve had it! I can’t stand it anymore! I’ve labored in ignorance for too long! What is IIRC?
Blumenthal jumps from there to saying that Keith's song advocates lynching - on the Colbert Report, no less.
Well I'm sure glad a whiner and fantasist like Blumenthal was able to set everyone straight.
Well, well, well. This guy just admitted that the people of this country know how to take care of problems and the politicians and liberals don’t. Amazing what happens when the truth comes out.
