Enemy of My Enemy…
Much ado about a country song lately. According to the artist, the song “refers to the feeling of a community that I had growing up, where we took care of our neighbors, regardless of differences of background or belief”. The images included throughout depict the riots and destruction being permitted, even encouraged to happen in our big cities. Because of this, and the inclusion of words not supporting gun confiscation, the music video has been the target of not only the perpetually woke, but the gun control establishment elite themselves.
Accusations of racism and promoting violence abound. They pointed to the filming location, in front of a courthouse where a black teen was lynched in 1920 and a race riot occurred in 1946 calling it a “dog whistle” and pro-lynching song that glorifies the old south “sunset towns”.
The pressure from the gun control zealots was enough for Country Music Television (CMT, owned by Paramount) to pull the video, an accomplishment they proudly boasted about, as well as now working to get the artist banned from doing a Grand Ole Opry fundraiser for the Covenant Christian School community.
Other pro-gun control country artists have piled on to attack the song and its premise, while the majority of the country music community and fanbase have rallied behind it, calling for a boycott of CMT.
… Is My Friend?
It’s worth noting the artist who performs this song was previously adored by the gun control crowd for endorsing their views. In an interview following the horrific Route 91 Harvest festival shooting in Las Vegas, he commented:
“It’s too easy to get guns, first and foremost. When you can walk in somewhere and you can get one in five minutes, do a background check that takes five minutes, like, how in-depth is that background check?”
While I can never fully understand the mental toll for someone who was on stage at the festival when this occurred, his comment was exactly the fear inducing gun control message the zealots want to get across. Perhaps this was just an emotional response or maybe he simply has never bought a firearm at a retail store. Or it could be he is simply ignorant to the full extent of what happens when the FFL (Federal Firearms Licensee) does a NCIS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) check.
BBR Music Group, the music video producer, recently, and very quietly, updated it to exclude the Fox News footage of the BLM/Antifa riots. This was demanded by Fox News, the former stalwarts of the conservative side.
Also rushing to the aid of the artist is Democrat turned Independent and currently undeclared 2024 presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, herself a long-time ardent gun control supporter.
A quote from Gabbard’s previous presidential run: “I have long called for reinstating a federal ban on military-style assault weapons and high capacity magazines, requiring comprehensive pre-purchase background checks for every gun sale, preventing domestic abusers from acquiring a gun, closing the gun-show loophole, and making sure that terrorists are not allowed to buy guns. I am focused on building bipartisan solutions that can actually be passed into law.”
A lot of people are putting a lot of energy into coming down on one side of this song or the other. But when you look at who they are, their history, and what they say about their beliefs, you come to understand it’s all part of the political game to garner support for their own agenda.
Enjoy the music & video, or not. It’s just a song. But don’t lose focus on the fact the gun control is actively, persistently, methodically, and defiantly working to take away your Second Amendment rights, one executive order, one administrative rule, one ordinance, one fee, one law, at a time.
Stay focused and be careful who is your friend, enemy of my enemy or not.
