As we speak, ISIS must be shaking in their boots. Jesus lovin, Obama hatin, American patriot Larry Gatlin, in conjunction with another good ole washed up country boy, Billy Dean, has written a song that is sure to get those terrorists thinking about changing their evil ways. And just to make sure that their awesome song gets the national attention which it deserves, Gatlin and Dean appeared on - where else - America's premier Jesus lovin, Obama hatin patriotic morning show, Fox & Friends. Who needs air strikes when you have Larry Gatlin!
Standing between her wingmen, Elisabeth Hassebeck proudly proclaimed that "as ISIS sends America messages of hate [kinda like Fox News?], country artists Larry Gatlin and Bill Dean decided to send them right back." She played video of international affairs expert Gatlin saying how pissed off he is about ISIS. The chyron: "Boot Stomping Mad, Country Music Takes On The Terrorists." He quoted Johnny Cash's past advice to him: "Pilgrim, when something makes you mad enough, you’re damned sure to write a song about it."
After Hasselbeck proudly proclaimed that the song "got 50 million hits on line," she introduced Gatlin and Dean who were right in the Fox & Friends studio to sing their we're not gonna take it ISIS song which began with "Dear worthless, gutless cowards, you say I must convert or die, well I guess you gonna have to kill me, least you’re gonna have to try." The song, in referencing famous American battles, praised the bravery of Americans "whose righteous might" should never be "underestimated." There was more jingoistic jargon about freedom loving Americans who "exist to fan the flame of freedom."
In feeding the right wing paranoia (fed by Fox) about how ISIS is coming to a town near you, they articulated the typical "real" American's solution to all problems which, for "real" America, include scary black people: "Hey, I wanna live in peace, but you come after my family, You’ll be staring down the barrel of my gun, an American with a Remington."
Despite the fact that neither Dean nor Gatlin served (Gatlin chose to attend college rather than fight in Vietnam), they sang about how "When my Daddy came home from Viet Nam disabled and like him I answered the call and I was ready to give my all in the mountains of Afghanistan." This was followed by musical braggadocio about how "You’re not the first who’d ever want to kill me, what makes you think I would turn and run (I won’t turn and run)." The last verse provided the complimentary closing for the message to ISIS: "An American with a Remington, an American with a Remington, yours truly an American with a Remington." (The title of the song) Obviously canned applause was heard.
Wow, ISIS must be really scared.....
These guys aren’t washed up, they just have values! They stand their ground! Why people idolize celebs that actually feel everyone is below them is crazy. Christians are the most persecuted religian – please do your homework Ben A.
Yeah. I’d like to see some sourcing on that claim. YouTube shows the (presumably) official video—as I post this—has earned a whopping 51,395 views SINCE SEPT 30TH.
Unless this is one of those “FCC moments” from the Family Guy episode, “PTV.” In the episode, Peter’s forced to go to Meg’s school play and misses the Emmys where David Hyde Pierce suffers a “trouser malfunction.” The FCC meets and notes they received something like 5 complaints by phone, and “as everyone knows” one complaint was the same as 1 billion offended people.
I hate country music.
The two together is enough to make me violent.
