Country rock star Aaron Lewis’ patriotic anthem “Am I the Only One” skyrocketed the iTunes charts, topping Big Red Machine’s “Renegade” with Taylor Swift on the weekend of July 4th.
Two versions of Lewis’s song, the explicit version and the radio edit, took second and third places on iTunes top songs on Saturday, propelling Swift to fifth.
The patriotic hymn, dedicated to “all patriots”, challenges left-wing activists and castigates those who demolished statutes during the Black Lives Matter riots last year.
“Am I the only one here tonight shaking my head and thinking something’s wrong,” Lewis sings. “Is it just me, am I losing my mind, am I on the brink at the end of time?” “
“Am I the only one not brainwashed?” Making my way through the land of the lost. Who still does not care and worries about his children. As they try to undo everything he’s done? Lewis sings in another line.
The song continues:
It’s not the freedom we fight for
It was something more, yeah, it was something more
Am I the only one who wants to fight
For my love of red and white
And the blue, burning on the ground
Another statue coming down to a town near you
Lewis, a founding member of rock band Staind, also brushes off far-left rocker Bruce Springsteen, who has threatened to leave the United States if former President Trump is re-elected.
“Am I the only one who stops singing, every time they play a Springsteen song,” Lewis sings.
The single’s jump to a song starring Taylor Swift follows her transformation into another left-wing spokesperson for Hollywood, publicizing her political ‘awakening’ in a 2018 article defaming Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN).
“In the past, I was reluctant to express my political views publicly, but due to several events in my life and the world over the past two years, I feel very different about this now,” he said. -she writes in the post, vowing to vote for candidates who will “protect and fight for human rights” and expressing her vehement belief in “systemic racism”, deeming it “terrifying, sickening and widespread”.
From that point on, Swift began to use her massive platform to push radical left narratives, ultimately poking fun at opponents of the radical left’s aggressive LGBT movement in a clip for her hit “You Need to Calm.” Down, “in which she portrayed opponents as angry, toothless and uneducated haybeans.
She stepped up her attacks on former President Trump last year, accusing him of trying “to blatantly cheat and put the lives of millions of Americans at risk in order to retain power.” She also said he had spent his “entire” presidency “stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism.”
The “Willow” singer has since partnered with left-wing organizations and candidates, recently expressing support for the Equality Act, which would effectively erase the legal definition of sex in favor of a left-wing ideology.
