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.

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."

Oh STFU idiot!

I am so sick of this crap.

Gangsta rap that calls for justice = progressive.

Country songs that call for justice = reactionary.

Morons.

The only thing idiots like Blumenthal do is create an audience for the movie.

Ted Rall is pro-lynching:

Deconstructionism
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.

The curious thing is that Keith, while definitely pro-WOT and pro-troop is otherwise, not all that right-leaning and IIRC, is actually a registered ‘rat.

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.

Joe -

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

That doesn’t sound like due process of law to me. Notice I didn’t say the song is strictly about vigilante justice, though, nor that it had anything to do with race.

Well, that depends what your definition of due process is. The due process that exists today is positively byzantine compared to what existed even 100 years ago, let alone in the Old West.

Anyway, you're right to the extent that the song is ambiguous. It's certainly not worth the steam that Blumenthal is letting off about it.

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 saw this smear the other day. Blumenthal was also on his high horse over at HuffPo (where else?) because Keith said in an interview that some black people think Obama “acts white,” which I'm sure is true, but Keith is not allowed to say such things.

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.
