“Let me write the songs of a nation, I care not who writes their laws” ~ Andrew Fletcher
As a former musician and DJ, though I no longer listen to rock and country music, I still follow their trends. There is no better critic of the dangers of secular music (and even most contemporary Christian music) than a former participant of it. In the last few years, I have noticed a trend in country music. That trend has been the slow integration of musicians adopting, encouraging, and promoting the LGBT lifestyle, something that has traditionally been a verboten practice among country music aficionados.
Before I explain why I believe Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are dating, let me first explain why the LGBT and Globalists need to infiltrate country music.
It’s not that country music is a bastion of orthodoxy and morality, it certainly is not, but the globalist agenda is about eliminating patriotism and nationalism, and there is no bigger strong hold on that ideology outside of Christian conservatives and country music fans. One of the most popular country anthems is by a country artist named Lee Greenwood, God Bless the USA. During times of war, country stars have written the rally themes like Toby Keith’s American Soldier and Red, White and Blue, Alan Jackson’s Remember When, Daryl Worley, Have You Forgotten. And who can forget the fighting songs written by Merle Haggard who quipped, “If you’re runnin’ down my country, you’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me”. Country music is replete with pro-American themes, hence “country” music.
Then there’s the reaction from the country crowd when the Dixie Chicks chose to criticize Republican George Bush which essentially stuck a fork in their career over the next two decades. Country music fans are most known for their patriotism and the 2nd Amendment; and that’s a sentiment that the globalists need to overcome if they are to get such a large conservative voter base on board with their agenda. The majority of the people who oppose liberal laws and therefore vote Republican, Tea Party, Libertarian (anything but Democrat) are southern conservatives who listen to country music.
Although country music is loaded with songs about cheating, beer, Jack Daniels, country fans have still maintained a loose sense of traditional old-fashioned values. Those values have been weakened through the acceptance of gay marriage among some of country music’s most popular voices like Carrie Underwood, Ty Herndon, Little Big Town, Dolly Parton, Kelly Clarkson (pop and country), Kasey Musgraves, et al. Country music has slowly integrated different styles of music to where traditional country fans admit that “country” is no longer “country”. But why has the sound changed so dramatically? Why has it been so popular to mash rap and country artists together? Why has the music industry created a “Crossroads” program to blend the musical genres? That’s fairly simple. The record companies behind them have an agenda, and they are well aware of the power of the arts in any culture to influence trends and lifestyles.
Blake Shelton is arguably the most popular figure in country music today. Gwen Stefani is probably one of the more popular figures in pop music. After Blake dumped Miranda Lambert, and Gwen jettisoned rock singer, Gavin Rossdale, the last couple anyone would have expected to see would be Blake and Gwen. However, Gwen is an outspoken advocate of gay rights. What better way to get country fans on board than by having a relationship with one of the largest voices in country music! Yes, there are a lot of women who’ve been blurring the lines, but men still tend to stand their ground, unless they have another male figure chiding them over their “hate”.
Recently, Blake was criticized for “homophobic” and “racist” tweets he made SEVEN YEARS AGO. These tweets had long since been deleted, but were saved by others. Now think about that….why does the liberal media make an issue out of seven year old forgotten and deleted tweets? making sure they are forwarded to Gwen Stefani? That answer is simple. If Blake is hooked on Gwen, he will make a public statement that will somehow be viewed as a capitulation on gay marriage and LGBTism that he has previously been vague and ambiguous about, and it will send a message to the male country fans that he is somehow OK with the gay agenda, something he has not been vocal about prior to dating Gwen Stefani. It’s how the liberal dishonest media and globalists are pushing their agenda. Blake stands to lose his girlfriend and possibly his career if he doesn’t kowtow to pressure to become tolerant in the way Gwen is.
It is ironic that so much of country music also has many religious oriented themes. Men in country music have lost their backbones and simple add a Bible reference or two to their songs to ensure a few deluded Christians buy their albums. The men in country music that refuse to uphold the LGBT agenda, haven’t been heard from.
If Taylor Swift tweets “boo”, 10 million teenagers would start making t-shirts on them that read “Taylor said, ‘boo'”. That’s how dumbed-down our culture has become in allowing the influences of musicians and other “artists” to dictate social mores. It’s a phenomena that the globalists are well aware of, and they are using every opportunity they can to integrate the last bastions of patriotism with influences that will continue to erode whatever is left of nationalist sentiment. This is why Andrew Fletcher wrote that if he were able to write the songs of the nation, it doesn’t matter who writes the laws because well-crafted music has the ability to tug on hearts in such an emotional way that it bypasses logic and reason resulting in its gullible sycophants to eschew any sense of truth and point of reference for judging what is objectively right.
