While we’re on the subject, there seems to be some confusion in Liberal Land that rednecks must always be right-wing bigots or some such nonsense like that.
Um, Willie Nelson is a redneck. And he’s seriously progressive. As is another country singer, Steve Earle, who mentioned at a concert I was at that Karl Marx has some good stuff to say. Lots of rednecks tilt leftwards.
