The Rednecks are coming, the Rednecks are coming

Actually, the rednecks are here and everywhere. Let me say, I'm not a big fan of these people. That's putting it mildly. Need I describe them? You know who I mean.

This seems to be the time of year when they come out of the woodwork. Here in Indiana, as the weather gets nice, the motorcyclists are out in full force. I hate the noise cycles make. Then there's the Indianapolis 500 fans, the majority of which are rednecks. Interview them or a typical Pacer fan (big news as they face the Miami Heat), and it's an ignorant, fat, slob man or woman saying, "we was excited", or some such grammatical misuse. It sickens me to look at and listen to these "idgits".

Sure, I wanted to know what was happening in Moore, OK. But what I didn't want to hear was all the religious platitudes spewing forth from those being interviewed: saved, prayed, blessed, thank God, etc., etc. I just want to scream (and often do)!  God saved you but wasn't responsible for the tornado and children deaths? Get real.

There. I feel better.

Sorry folks.  If you are an atheist you ain't a red neck.

I've traveled a hell of a lot of miles on motorcycles (solo and sometimes with clubs). Didn't know that made me a redneck... or maybe its my two Jeeps.

I guess I am redneck. As a child I talked twangy and it seemed to be what those around me were doing. Imagine the worst redneck accent and I had it. I joined the Army and my training instructor asked what part of Georgia  I was from. He was from Georgia. I'm from Missouri. Back then I thought it was all funny and a thing to do talking that way. Today I avoid redneck or any hillbilly accent or talk. You might want to keep this if you didn't graduate high school.

Hello, Randall. Did you move to the region or have you lived there your entire life? I'm just curious because even my friends in the military who weren't rednecks and grew up in the region still loved motorcycles and racing. They aren't fat slobs but they are arguably ignorant. =D

I liked Jeff Foxworthy's I might be a redneck if I cut the grass and find the car I haven't seen for several years.

Just because I'm from the South and ride a Harley don't confuse me with the ' necks. * wink* I am also intolerant of the ignorant bible thumping idgits!

@blue pashima. The woman being interviewed by Blitzer has a TON of class!

@Randall. I tend to agree about rednecks.  Personal bias on my part, but the sound of Country and Western music is, to me, the equivalent of a knife scraping against a blackboard. I suppose it reminds me of a cultural mindset that ridicules knowledge, curiosity of the world, independent thinking, and glorifies militarism, nationalistic jingoism, and the wallowing in superstition. 

I've mentioned this before here, and at the risk of being redundant, it's the same thing I heard about an airline crash in Libya 2 years ago.  Everyone on board dies, except one 11 year old Dutch boy. Everyone was talking about God's miracle in saving him. It was more akin to God blowing a no hitter in the bottom of the 9th.

I'm sure you have seen this already because everyone is talking about it, but this lady made my day.  I think she was really classy! :)
