Sometimes I'm ashamed to be an American. My friend John Gray's latest blog post is a perfect example of why--he's responding to what I can only assume is an American bigot who had the audacity to email him an awful anti-gay tirade criticizing his blog.
Oh, John. I'm so sorry. A whole lot of my fellow citizens here in the USA believe some despicable things. I put a lot of the blame on Fox (Faux) News.
Recently I've fallen in love with comedian Trae Crowder, or "The Liberal Redneck". People assume that if you're from the South here in the USA then you're an ignorant, inbred, conservative, Jesus-fetish-ing jerk. And I'll admit, we have more than our share of people like that. But not all of us, by a long shot. That's why the video rants Trae Crowder shares on YouTube are so hilarious to me--they tap into a whole under represented population of liberal, humanist, civil rights defending, free-thinking people who call this part of the USA home.
Here's a nice example of The Liberal Redneck's viewpoints. Enjoy! And remember, there's more of us than most people think!
The Liberal Redneck--Belief don't matter none!
