Song “Sweet Home Alabama” Officially Becomes a Thought Crime

It was only a matter of time. Lynyrd Skynyrd’s classic song “Sweet Home Alabama” has been designated a thought crime:

The Chicago Police Department says it will discipline an officer who played “Sweet Home Alabama” over a police-cruiser loudspeaker during a march protesting police treatment of African Americans.

The song is considered an anthem to Southern pride but some interpreted his playing of the song during Saturday’s march as racially insensitive.

“Racially insensitive” means subject to censorship in the name of political correctness, so don’t expect to keep hearing this classic played on the radio.

The department says in a statement that the officer maintained he played the song because he is a University of Alabama fan. But the department says it can’t condone an act considered “disruptive or disrespectful” to protesters or residents.

The protests inspired by the media-driven, government-encouraged Michael Brown/Eric Garner spectacle have featured mobs of thugs assaulting police officers and chanting “What do we want? Dead cops!” Good thing they aren’t disruptive or disrespectful.

Anything reminding liberals of the South is a potential thought crime now. Enjoy this great song before it goes down the memory hole:

On a tip from Wiggins.

    Wow, so I guess the next time a cop hears some loud as rap saying “Fuck da Police” coming out of some $2k dollar car on $4K dollar rims he should just start shooting.

    I have been a huge fan of Lynyrd Skynyrd since high school – so, it makes me angry that this song was considered imflammatory. As an antidote, I think, I will listen to a medley of Lynyrd Skynyrd music tonight – with the headphones on.

    I would suggest that in the future, the cop should play something more like this: : )

    This is pushing things so far, I now actually believe that perhaps Jeb Stuart will, in fact, ride again.

    Hey black folks: with freedom comes responsibility. Respect is earned. Adversity builds character and needs to be overcome. What you’re showing the world is that you ARE a bunch of child-like, helpless baboons who only know how to screw, scream and break stuff.

    Maybe it wouldn’t be such an awful thing if the South did rise again.

    Golly, I wonder what they call shooting 50 black people in their city over the weekend…

    Just like the hypnotized lemming who dances like a ballerina or clucks like a chicken on stage when they hear the command word, these people have been conditioned to hear Skynurd and see only a Confederate flag…which when they see that, they are conditioned to only think of slavery.
    Meanwhile, preteens blast F the Police and songs about degrading women and breaking the law on every street corner in their dangerous, segregated, city.
    Check out Things Goin’On, Curtis Loew, and Mister Banker…Skynyrd was down with the stuggle in poor neighborhoods.

    Haven’t heard the song in awhile so I listened again and STILL didn’t hear any racial context or mention of race in any way. Maybe it is subliminal and can only be heard by the oh so enlightened elitist liberal ruling class scum.

    Or maybe it is the latest attempt to force you to think only the thoughts they want you to think. Hmmmm. You will conform to their way or be destroyed. They will find that destroying me is gonna be REAL expensive.

    We need to make it known that there are those of us out here that will retaliate with extreme prejudice should they even accidentally interact with us. Like landmines hidden in the culture, screw with the wrong thing, and they can never know which is the wrong thing and we go off in their face. Give them the war they desire but on a level they simply cannot comprehend. They would lose their desire to screw with stuff very quickly.

    Liberals, aka American Communists, are great at organizing rock throwing protests, sign waving marches, random pointless acts of violence and commercial sound bites but have no understanding of guerilla warfare.

    If the “humanist” office in Madison, WI. threatens a school district in FL. you destroy the humanist office in Seattle, with all hands. Alternatively, if the “humanist” office in Madison, WI. threatens a school district in FL.

    you destroy the Media Matters office in Denver with all hands. For every act of oppression that liberalism perpetrates against this nation or its people, they lose a significant group or installation. Give the liberals some skin in the game and see how quickly they cower.
    The only other remaining alternative is all out civil war.

Yeah, you can’t “stare” at people or you’ll be arrested for STARING at people!!! Yeah! That’s next!! Are enough people AWAKE BY NOW???!!!! Hey, I got an idea…..if you can get a hold of the CD of this classical song I’ve come to know for a long time, GET IT as soon as you can….or get a download of it off the Internet (I assume there is one somewhere) and copy it to a recordable CD so you can play it on your car’s CD player – or any device you can copy it onto for that matter these days. Then, when at a parking lot or stop light where you can be heard, TURN UP THE SPEAKERS play that music so everyone can hear it! Play it LOUD! Play it PROUD! DO IT!
