Being Against Crime Added To List Of Things That Are Racist

Being Against Crime Added To List Of Things That Are Racist. By the Babylon Bee.

Country star Jason Aldean released a controversial single this month called “Try That In A Small Town” in which he laid out his belief that crime is bad. He has since been forcefully condemned by the music industry since being against crime is now considered a racist dog whistle.

“I was shocked and saddened by the blatant racism in Aldean’s song that condemned violent crime,” said CMT President Brian Philips. “Crime is a beloved and noble tradition of BIPOC communities, and to condemn it is to condemn our own black brothers and sisters. I am sorry we ever allowed it to be aired.”

Aldean defended himself from the criticism on his Instagram page, saying “What on earth does this have to do with race? I never mentioned race, you guys did! You guys are racist! What’s wrong with you people?” Unfortunately, no one read his statement as Instagram soon removed the post.

The thing is, it’s not really a joke. The criminals are in fact tools of the Democrats — that’s why they promote crime when they’re in power — in a war to disorient and demoralize the normies. And “racism” is a tool the lefties use to try to keep their opponents from organizing against them. It’s true here, and it was true with the Yellow Jacket protests in France:

Talking about the yellow-vest movement, French geographer Christophe Guilluy observes: “Immediately, the protesters were denounced as xenophobes, anti-Semites and homophobes. The elites present themselves as anti-fascist and anti-racist, but this is merely a way of defending their class interests. It is the only argument they can muster to defend their status, but it is not working anymore.”

Any person or group in opposition to the Democrats is smeared as racist or bigoted because that’s their excuse for suppressing them. And there’s a whole infrastructure — see, e.g., the Southern Poverty Law Center — to promote the smears and launder them as coming from “nonpartisan” sources.

Contrast the above to 40 years ago (and don’t weep):
