Here are the lyrics to a recent music video released by the musical artist Ricky Rebel. It is a parody of the gay anthem Y.M.C.A., reformulated as M.A.G.A. It is now being played at Trump campaign rallies, it is gotten millions of views, and perhaps as much as anything, it epitomizes the difference between the Right and Left in America.
Walk away from the hate
We’re all human
And we don’t segregate
Just like women
Help make America great
We are all
Are red, white and blue
And they stand for
Every on-ne of you
Here’s what we’re gonna do
We’re gonna make
“We’re having fun and they can’t take it.” So says Ricky Godinez, known publicly as Ricky Rebel. Godinez describes his experience as a closeted gay high school student as easier on his psyche than his more recent ordeal as a closeted conservative musical artist living in Los Angeles.
Godinez compares events with Trump supporters to the recent Antifa and BLM protests. In one case, paraphrasing, “there are bright colors, there is singing, there is happiness, and people are having a good time, and in the other case there are people wearing black, attacking people and vandalizing and burning property.”
View this video, one of many skipping virally just in front of the censors, which comes with a completely unwarranted “inappropriate” warning from YouTube, to see how it is the Trump community that is “inclusive,” and the anti-Trump minions who are filled with violent hatred.
In this video, Godinez explains why he is a Trump supporter, (1) he is committed to ending HIV within ten years, (2) his ambassador to the UN is demanding nations around the world stop killing gay people, (3) he is good for the economy, (4) “he is not for all these crazy things that liberals want,” he wants strong borders, good trade deals, and wants to bring industry back to America.
Ricky Rebel is another example of why Trump’s supporters cannot be stereotyped.
