We’re still working through the full recognition of a domestic terror attack against the United States to overthrow our democracy and our government ordered by the president…and it’s a bit much.
At the same time, there were police, Democratic politicians, prosecutors, and many Americans of conscience and principle (even social media companies) who stepped up and said, “Oh no you don’t! Not in America!”
So this weekend’s music thread is for songs about the real America, songs about the country and its cities, staying strong and principled and songs reflecting the values and democracy that America really stands for.
America has had its close calls with fascist overthrows before, whether it was the original America First movement that Hitler-friendly Charles Lindbergh spearheaded or The Business Plot that CEOs attempted in 1933 to remove FDR from power, and America has always prevailed. We have and will again but we must always be vigilant because it’s never fully extinguished.
So share your songs about America, its cities, its history, and most importantly, its character that in the long run, defends this country against those who intend to do it harm.
