Yes, "til the Party Power is gone" @ 4:22 minutes - "in the meantime", Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has "refused to impeach" two Republican presidents and "the wars go on, and on, and on"!

Hi Lila and your singers. Manels (not a typo) of white men are not acceptable any more. Especially out of place with this song they are singing. A diverse group of people would have been great. AND the inclusion of white supremacy and misogyny in the song is needed. Maybe next time......

I see your point, but I also don't think that every post has to be about race. Maybe the point is that a group of Caucasian men often labeled as redneck Trump acolytes are saying the opposite.

The simplest explanation might be better. It's a one-man creation. And this man is white, simply wearing multiple disguises to appear as more than one person.

I can just imagine the backlash he'd get if he tried playing the parts of coloured people (or maybe even a woman). He'd be accused of anything from "employing blackface" to "stigmatizing" Arabs, Muslims, Asians, etc.

Also, the song was about the government-corporate betrayal of the People, not about cultural issues. I really don't understand why Sheila is evoking identity or diversity here.

Just to be clear - I did not create the material in the video or have anything to do with it. I tried to link it but had problems, so had to submit it as an article.

I believe 100% in the right to bear arms click here!

Even though there are many I don't like to look at, in our "hyper-sized" nation.

Thank you, Lila. This is inspired! They cover so many of the right points. And even the musical arrangement is fresh.
