‘Nothing says country music more than drag queens’: CMT Music Awards goes ‘woke’

You are excused if you did not see this coming, but country music has gone woke — much like Covid-19, the radical left ideology has thoroughly infected our weak-mind nation.

CMT Music Awards allowed country pop singer Kelsea Ballerini to use its stage to protest a supposedly controversial Tennessee law that would restrict drag performances in front of children — the law, which has been temporarily blocked by a judge, is being portrayed by the media as a “drag ban.”

Ballerini paraded out a troupe of drag queens to serve as her backup singers in her rainbow-colored celebration of gay pride. On a country music awards show. Then again, it’s a fair argument to say that country music stopped being country music long ago.

It’s a safe bet that country music legends like Hank Williams and Waylon Jennings might object, but we’re not in Kansas anymore folks.

The drag queens, Kennedy Davenport, Manila Luzon, Jan Sport and Oliva Lux, spoke to Entertainment Tonight after their political stunt.

“Just like all these amazing country music artists, we drag queens are also artists. And we deserve a space to be ourselves, express ourselves, and create something wonderful for everyone to enjoy,” Luzon said.

“It means so much,” Sport added. “Because any opportunity for us to share our gifts with the world is a blessing. So, it’s more of us having a message to bless other people. It’s not bad. It’s all good. It’s all love. It’s all total liberation — that’s what the arts are all about.”

After all, mainstreaming depravity is what it’s all about — beginning with exposing children to sexually inappropriate content.

As for Ballerini, she said after the performance, “I love self-expression and I love inclusivity.”

Country music legend Reba McEntire weighed in on Tennessee’s efforts to protect children by ignoring that aspect altogether — this being the end result of a biased media presenting the story from one side only.

“We’ve got a real problem in this country, and to be worrying about men wanting to dress up as women? God bless ’em to wear those high heels — I feel for ’em,” McEntire told the LA Times.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
