Country Star Goes Woke; Says America He’s Lived in is a ‘Myth’

'I think everybody should be doing more. It's time for me to listen. And it's time for other folks to listen...'

County singer Chris Stapleton said in an interview Wednesday that he embraces ‘wokeness’ and understands that the good-natured America he thought he lived in is a “myth,” Fox News reported.

“You know, I thought we were living in a different country. And that’s 100% real,” he said. “I feel like the country that I thought that we were living in was a myth.”

Stapleton had appeared on “CBS This Morning” to talk about his forthcoming album, Starting Over.

When the discussion turned to the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, Stapleton said the events led him to a “broad awakening.”

The country star repeated the corporate media–Democratic Party–Black Lives Matter talking points about listening silently as radical leftists ridicule and destroy the nation.

“I think everybody should be doing more,” he said. “It’s time for me to listen. And it’s time for other folks to listen.”

Stapleton would not say whether he supported the Black Lives Matter movement.

Instead, he conflated the Marxist political organization with the self-evidently true statement that “black lives matter.”

“Do I think black lives matter? Absolutely… I don’t know how you could think they don’t,” he said.

“I think we all have a lot of work to do, you know, as individuals as a society,” he continued. “And if you don’t think that, I think you’re not looking.”

“Starting Over,” the title song on Stapleton’s new album, addresses the 2017 shooting at Las Vegas’s Route 91 Harvest country music festival, during which a gunman killed 59 people during a performance by fellow country star Jason Aldean.

“It’s a powerful number to me that conveys the sentiment, hey let’s cut the evil s**t out… it’s a plea in some ways,” he said.
