Country music is a culture in and of itself, and believe you me (it ain't all Love, Peace and Bernie up here) Rednecks have been waiting on the Lipton Brigade since the '30's in certain parts of the deep Country conn-tray.
'Tailgate Rape' we women were SO not ready for at music concerts. Especially the better-stocked tailgate/bars blasting the artist of the day or night … that open at dawn and rock and rowdy it up, and the punches are flying far into the moonlight.
Or daytime, the abusers don't seem to care it if it be broad daylight, 'Day Drinking' is the hit of the summer in many a way:
Catchy, Little Big Town.
Blame it on the tick-tock moving too slow
Keith Urban is one of the kindest and most tender Country artists, and he's even an Aussie! I can only imagine how the artists are reacting to all of this. Tailgating was once threatened by state law, pretty sure it was revoked, with extreme prejudice, by Happy Hour.
This took place in Mansfield, MA near Boston, as well, not at Fancy Farm. From Raw Story.
According to The Sun Chronicle, Mansfield police determined that 18-year-old Sean Murphy began kissing the 17-year-old girl after meeting her at the concert on Sunday, and then took her away from her friends to another part of the outdoor amphitheater. She said that she went with him because “she was afraid of what would happen” if she didn’t agree.
After removing the girl’s shorts and underwear, Murphy reportedly began having sex with her.
Police said that 15 or more concert-goers gathered around to watch, and even recorded the incident on their cell phones. Some of those photographs and videos had been recovered as evidence.
The attack only allegedly came to an end when a woman [witness] asked the victim if the act was consensual.
“Do you want this?” the woman was heard screaming.
According to a police report, the girl said, “no,” and then a witness “saw the female break free and run.”
Urban [who I've fantasized about for years like thousands of other dames, that man is Fine], was devastated when riotous violence erupted at his last large gig In nearby Massachusetts this week.
Anyone else suspect the Ever So Contrary Tea Party Operatives? You might want to don your complimentary TPC Wellies and the big size of our Method™ Troll Spray.
This is the mentality we stand across the moral divide from. And clearly there's a happenin' Open Bar every 600 yards at the opposite side. In an Open Carry state your odds go up a LOT of being Raped or dead after the next class Nashville super-star acts begin upping the ante.
I myself enjoy a little good modern Country like The I'm Not Ready to Make Nice mavens, The Dixie Chicks (And their politics) and both Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are out o' the Republican Coatroom, among others. From messnbc:
Guns and shots (or apparently lager for horseys), pistolos and te-quiuilllla(!), Open Carry and Open Bar … these are clearly things that not ought to be consumed from dawn to when you stumble on back home or manage to get your drooling state of inebriation duly noted by someone who can lock you up just for that.
This was seemingly a recently unleashed guy,(who now just Lives for who Jack Daniels) is under investigation, [the rapist from Boston] could not find the sensible cut-off stage but didn't truly realize that for a lengthy hangover) arrested for being arsehole drunk - unapologetically arseholey hammered.
Urban himself told The Rolling Stone:
My team and I were horrified to learn of the events reported in Boston this past weekend and our hearts and prayers go out to all those affected," it reads. "This type of behavior stands in stark contrast to the spirit of our shows.
Wouldn't be right not to add an Urban video. Specially for the Ladies. Urban wrote this one for the troops, and all profits were donated to the Navy Seals.
Also a tight tune, Urban with Miranda Lambert.
