The Liberal Rednecksâ€”a Southern-based stand-up comedy group known for their scathing political satireâ€”celebrate all thatâ€™s good about Dixie while leading a progressive revolution toward a New South.
The American South is home to some of the best music, cuisine, athletics, whiskey, and weather the country has to offer, but its reputation as a haven for its â€śright-wing, Bible-beatinâ€™, assault-rifle-totinâ€™â€ť citizens precedes itâ€”and, according to the Liberal Rednecks, rightfully so. Yet, as they explain it, the situation in the South is far more complex than â€śhypocritical, nose-up-in-the-air Yankeesâ€ť give it credit for. And they should knowâ€”they are native sons.
Whip-smart, hilarious, and incisive, the Liberal Rednecks are lifelong, down-home Southern boys who arenâ€™t afraid to call out the outdated traditions and intolerant attitudes of their native landâ€”while also shining a proud light on the most misunderstood region of the country. Their mission: to provide a manifesto for young progressives south of the Mason-Dixon line to rise up and claim their homelandâ€”without abandoning the best of their culture.
Exploring race, class, guns, religion, drug addiction, alcoholism, and homophobia, the Liberal Rednecks tell it like it is while challenging stereotypes at every turn. Fresh, funny, and surprising, The Liberal Redneck Manifesto gives us a vision of Dixieland as it exists nowâ€”and what it could become.
