‘This ain’t the freedom we’ve been fighting for.’
Songs are a great influence on society and its people, but most singers these days are scared to write and sing the truth about America going all to hell.
They’re afraid of being cancelled.
Not Nashville Hall of Fame songwriter Jeffrey Steele.
“Rock stars used to be anarchists,” said Steele. “They used to be anti-government.”
But in the current era of corporate and government lies, singers aren’t “saying things in their music about what’s really going on” in America.
And Steele has a problem with what’s going on in America. Freedom and individual rights are being canceled by left-wing fanatics. Historic monuments and statues are being torn down. American servicemen and women are being slaughtered because government leaders only care about themselves and their obsession with power. American citizens and their brave allies are being left behind enemy lines.
You can bet your ass Steele has a problem with that. “I’ve always written from the heart,” he said. And if people who have been brainwashed by an autocratic government try to cancel him, it’s not going to work.
‘A BROKEN BLEEDING MAN’
Steele has released a single called ‘Afghanistan’ about the Biden administration’s heartless and incompetent withdrawal that caused the deaths of 12 Marines and a Navy medic and stranded thousands of American citizens and allies to face tortuous deaths.
And here I am
a broken bleeding man
in between a sky of angels and an ancient land
“Our men and women were dying over there for twenty years and the government left them behind,” said Steele. Nobody was coming to help them. What is that?”
There is no truth in our government on the highest level, he added. “I don’t know where you get the truth from anymore. It’s certainly not the mainstream media. We know that.”
Steele collaborated with singer-songwriter Ira Dean and country singer Aaron Lewis to write a patriotic anthem, ‘Am I the Only One,’ calling out politicians and extremist groups for the country veering far left.
Am I the only one, willin’ to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue, burnin’ on the ground
Another statue comin’ down in a town near you
Watchin’ the threads of Old Glory come undone
Am I the only one?
The song has been ignored and even condemned by the corporate mainstream media and radio stations for its conservative fervor.
“If Aaron Lewis puts out a song about American patriotism, Steele said, “he gets completely shot down by the media.”
That ain’t right.
This is the song:
