“The glorious absence of sophistication.”
—Jeff Foxworthy, Romney supporter, defining “redneck”
They have told black folks to get off food stamps and go to work, and they are trying like mad to keep them from voting.
They have told Hispanics to go home.
They have prodded women with vaginal probes and told them they are going to hell if they use contraceptives or seek abortions, even if raped and impregnated.
It appears the only groups that show the GOP any love these days are redneck country music has-beens and their fans. From CBS News:
Hank Williams Jr. just made it pretty clear which presidential candidate he’ll be voting for come November.
The country singer took a political swing at President Barack Obama while performing for a crowd of 8,500 at the Iowa State Fair Grandstand Friday night.
After finishing the song, “We Don’t Apologize For America,” the audience started chanting “USA, USA…” According to the Des Moines Register, Williams then told the crowd, “We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!”
According to the concert review, Williams’ comments brought on cheers and applause.
“We hate him!” brings cheers and applause. At least somebody still understands and appreciates the character of the Republican Party.
