Description

The Liberal Rednecks - a three-man stand-up comedy group doing scathing political satire - celebrate all that's good about the South while leading the Redneck Revolution and standing proudly blue in a sea of red.

Smart, hilarious, and incisive, the Liberal Rednecks confront outdated traditions and intolerant attitudes, tackling everything people think they know about the South - the good, the bad, the glorious, and the shameful - in a laugh-out-loud funny and lively manifesto for the rise of a New South. Home to some of the best music, athletes, soldiers, whiskey, waffles, and weather the country has to offer, the South has also been bathing in backward bathroom bills and other bigoted legislation that Trae Crowder has targeted in his Liberal Redneck videos, which have gone viral, with over 50 million views.

Perfect for fans of Stuff White People Like, I Am America (and So Can You), and Dear White People, The Liberal Redneck Manifesto skewers political and religious hypocrisies in witty stories such as the Ten Commandments of the New South and much more! While celebrating the South as one of the richest sources of American culture, this entertaining audiobook issues a wake-up call and a reminder that the South's problems and dreams aren't that far off from the rest of America's.

A southern grandma's opinion

As a southern grandma I can attest to the accuracy of the content, as a former probation officer and current addiction counselor and counselor educator I have lived some of the uglier parts. All that said you will laugh til you cry when you listen to this. I am so glad the boys (the authors - I'm a grandma so I can call 'em boys) did their own narration. It's just fabulous! If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!

Must read for all Americans

Especially northern liberals. I'm a college-educated middle class liberal woman from small town New England and this book called me out on my bullshit, most of which I was completely unaware. The authors are first and foremost funny AF. They are also intelligent, informed, self-deprecating, fiercely proud and brutally honest. And hearing their own voices has helped to dispel my preconceptions associated with the Southern accent. In fact, these smart-talking boys sound sexy as hell! More important, their message must be heeded by the American "left," which judging from 2016 election needs to come down from its high horse and get some correctly fitting britches. I sincerely hope the Liberal Rednecks can help pull Dixie out of the dark, but they have already succeeded in shining a light for this Yankee.

More accurate representation than Hillbilly Elegy

As someone who actually grew up in Appalachia and currently lives in Tennessee, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I read it right after I read Hillbilly Elegy. The problems in Appalachia are complicated and at least these authors actually grew up in the south. I understand they were two vastly different books, but Hillbilly Elegy was written by someone who grew up in Ohio and basically concluded that Appalachians could fix their own problems if they weren't so lazy. This book blames some of the South's problems rightfully on its inhabitants while pointing out the numerous external factors that contribute to the many issues we face. It was also hilarious. Highly recommended for liberals and conservatives alike.

A love letter that bites

This book is brilliant. Having not read it and just listened I can't compare. I believe that something about having the boys own voices makes it that much better. As they say "it just hits". I almost wish they would have left Liberal out of the title so more people would engage it. While it is clear they fall on the liberal side of the aisle, it is equally critical of liberals and conservatives. Their love of their southern heritage is thick and engaging. They are critical but they do it all with love

Hilariously entertaining

If you are a fan of the Liberal Redneck or you aren't this book is for you. Read by the authors in their thick southern drawls makes listening to this book way better than reading it. It is hilarious, smart, sad, honest, and hopeful all at once. These comedian/authors are whip smart and as down home as the come. They explain southern culture in a way even us "damn Yankees" will understand. A must have for people who love the south, hate the south, but more importantly don't understand the south. Wish it was 10 hours longer and will look forward to any books by these guys in the future.

Pharmacy tech in Mississippi

I'm a pharmacy technician in Mississippi Kosciusko to be exact and no you've never heard of it because it's a tiny town with basically nothing here. There are However a massive number of pillbillies and red necks I come from a family of them and I also happen to be Latina which has fucked with my identity massively because of the shit that my family talked about Mexico whilst also saying but your daddy was Mexican it's ok 🙄 anyway my point is this book gets it all right like so exactly correct I laughed I cried and as a southern born woman who has both shame and pride about where I come from I lived the hell out of this book and I highly recommend it I wish it was longer or had a sequel but no doubt you will not regret this read!

read this book now

smart. Well told. Relevant and important for all. Please review this book with an open mind and get that we shouldn't rest at difference but move to understand the reason for those differences. When we do that we find common ground. Thank you Trae Corey Andrew.

Read this if you are a "City Liberal"

Don't confuse this book with the typical redneck satirists like Larry The Cable Guy or Jeff Foxworthy ("you know you're a redneck when..."). Reading this book is like spending time with "real" legitimate southern rednecks who are normal people just like you and me, but see the world from an entirely different perspective. If you were at all surprised that Donald Trump won the US election, then you need to read this book. This book is a must read for all "city liberals" who don't understand what is going on outside of urban America. This book will set you free...and make you laugh out loud.

Spot On

What made the experience of listening to The Liberal Redneck Manifesto the most enjoyable?

These guys nailed it. It was funny, and downright hilarious in places. But it was also thought provoking and well researched. The history and social commentary is actually what makes this book worth checking out. The humor--and there is quite a lot of it--is just icing on the cake.

An eye-opener and must-read for all Americans!

I am a minority female American living over 20 years in Germany. Strangely enough, I discovered Trae Crowder after the murder of George Floyd. Never really politically motivated, I changed my attitude on politics the moment Trump decided to run for president. My love for comedy found a different avenue of fulfilment through political comedy, and goodness gracious does the liberal redneck deliver in that category!

Trae, Drew and Corey have done something amazing with this book. With their attempt to bring you closer to better understanding the South, they manage to teach you a thing or two on history, tackle practically all negative "isms" and phobias plaguing much of the world, make you question your own ethical composition, use genuine, introspective honesty to depict their view on all elements of society - family, religion, community, government, etc. but most of all, they are incredibly human and compassionate towards the realities ailing our society as a whole! AND..... they do it with gobbles of humor! Honestly, if you are not laughing throughout this book, there is a gene missing in you, perhaps even several!

If you have a problem with profanity, please try to get pass it!!! These guys are so smart and insightful that the proper insertion of expletives on just the right moment only makes the reading even more enjoyable. On that note, I can only vehemently recommend getting the audio book. For those just "reading" the book, you are totally missing out! I kept catching my own self falling into the age-old stereotype and thinking, "how can anyone with that drawl be so intelligent, eloquent and funny at the same time"?

I swear that after finishing this book, I genuinely wanted to be a better person! To the authors I would just like to say how much I connected with so many aspects of your lives and that I hope you continue inspiring, particularly your fellow Americans.
