“Country music is different. It’s not Wakanda.” (Patrick Howley)

I never heard of Patrick Howley until yesterday. I do not swim in the effluent of far right or left-wing extremism. When I read the pieces about his criticism of the Country Music Awards, I was dumbfounded. His screed is in the realm of you just cannot make this s**t up. It is dumb f**kery to the Nth degree.

Patrick Howley is described as a journalist, reporter, right-wing conspiracy theorist, anti-Semite, White supremacist, White Nationalist, and Q-Anon conspiracist. Those are just a few of his “finer qualities.” He is ignorant, uneducated, unlearned, unhinged, and a typical freedumb lovin, God fearin, flag wavin, nephew of good ole Uncle Sam. In other words, a blithering, drooling, knuckle-dragging Neanderthal less-on (Lower than a moron). My apologies to Neanderthals.

After the Country Music Awards, the mumbling, stumbling, bumbling Howley went on a rant over the presence of so many Black entertainers, including co-host Anthony Mackie.

“I don’t know who this Black guy who’s hosting it. It’s supposed to be country music,” Howley said in the video. “No offense, I mean y’all have hip-hop and basketball. Know what I mean? It’s like, just fly with your flock, bro…”

“I’m not against you, but you’re up there being like ‘The melanated people invented country music. We was making country music in Wakanda before Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard done stole the black man’s country music.’ It’s like all right, bro. It’s so angry.”…

“There were so many Black people there, sorry to say, but like so many Black celebrities who have nothing to do with country music and it’s like ‘Why?’ No disrespect to the funky brothers of music. I love Earth, Wind & Fire, Run-DMC, etc. But I mean, country music’s different. Country music’s different. It’s not Wakanda.” (Yahoo News)

Earth, Wind, & Fire? Run-DMC? What century is this mincing Millennial living in?

I guess Howley never heard of DeFord Baily, Charlie Pride, or Darius Rucker, African American members of the Grand Ole Opry. Both Baily and Pride were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Aaron Neville, Cowboy Troy, Cleve Francis, and many other African Americans are in Country Music.

Blacks have been in Country Music since its inception as a popular genre. African Americans are fans of Country Music, just like Whites are fans of Hip Hop, Rap, and Neo-Soul. Blacks are credited with introducing the banjo to Country Music. I would bet Howley’s head would explode if he learned of the Black Cowboy associations in his ‘Merica.

Patrick Howley must live in an opaque bubble of his own pure whiteness. He is one of the syphilitic parasitics who inhabit the world of conspiracy theorists, spreaders of fake news, anti-vaccine information, misinformation, disinformation, anti-Semitism, and racism. As the video below shows, he is also crazy, as crazy can be.

This is pure lunacy

I have seen and heard many insane things over the decades from people way more educated and intelligent than Patrick Howley- some with Ivy League credentials- though just as insane. But his rant about African Americans in Country Music is one of the most asinine things I ever witnessed. I know it will not be the last time I see, hear or read utter stupidity from the extreme far left or right. But Howley takes the cake for pure solid gold ignorance.
