Publisher's Summary

The Liberal Rednecks - a three-man stand-up comedy group doing scathing political satire - celebrate all that's good about the South while leading the Redneck Revolution and standing proudly blue in a sea of red.

Smart, hilarious, and incisive, the Liberal Rednecks confront outdated traditions and intolerant attitudes, tackling everything people think they know about the South - the good, the bad, the glorious, and the shameful - in a laugh-out-loud funny and lively manifesto for the rise of a New South. Home to some of the best music, athletes, soldiers, whiskey, waffles, and weather the country has to offer, the South has also been bathing in backward bathroom bills and other bigoted legislation that Trae Crowder has targeted in his Liberal Redneck videos, which have gone viral, with over 50 million views.

Perfect for fans of Stuff White People Like, I Am America (and So Can You), and Dear White People, The Liberal Redneck Manifesto skewers political and religious hypocrisies in witty stories such as the Ten Commandments of the New South and much more! While celebrating the South as one of the richest sources of American culture, this entertaining audiobook issues a wake-up call and a reminder that the South's problems and dreams aren't that far off from the rest of America's.

Must read for all Americans

Especially northern liberals. I'm a college-educated middle class liberal woman from small town New England and this book called me out on my bullshit, most of which I was completely unaware. The authors are first and foremost funny AF. They are also intelligent, informed, self-deprecating, fiercely proud and brutally honest. And hearing their own voices has helped to dispel my preconceptions associated with the Southern accent. In fact, these smart-talking boys sound sexy as hell! More important, their message must be heeded by the American "left," which judging from 2016 election needs to come down from its high horse and get some correctly fitting britches. I sincerely hope the Liberal Rednecks can help pull Dixie out of the dark, but they have already succeeded in shining a light for this Yankee.

Read this if you are a "City Liberal"

Don't confuse this book with the typical redneck satirists like Larry The Cable Guy or Jeff Foxworthy ("you know you're a redneck when..."). Reading this book is like spending time with "real" legitimate southern rednecks who are normal people just like you and me, but see the world from an entirely different perspective. If you were at all surprised that Donald Trump won the US election, then you need to read this book. This book is a must read for all "city liberals" who don't understand what is going on outside of urban America. This book will set you free...and make you laugh out loud.

Spot On

What made the experience of listening to The Liberal Redneck Manifesto the most enjoyable?

These guys nailed it. It was funny, and downright hilarious in places. But it was also thought provoking and well researched. The history and social commentary is actually what makes this book worth checking out. The humor--and there is quite a lot of it--is just icing on the cake.

So proud. So, so, proud.

Thanks y'all for making a hit. Intelligent, savvy, earthy, red, white, and blue lights like soft firecrackers all over the night sky for you guys. Mark Twain said to give em hell and you're still serving it. Good job. Keep it coming.

Could use a few more like this

This audiobook, read by the comedians themselves, was funny, intelligent, and surprisingly informative. Trae jokes about saving some stuff for the memior... I'd read it.

Insightful, optimistic, and informative.

As a North Carolinian native, seems to me these guys are three home grown, rooted, and insightful men from the south accurately explaining what we should be proud of, what we should acknowledge with shame, and how we shpuld take that information with us moving forward in a way that makes the south rise again -but not the confederacy- in such a way that we can lead the nation (and the world) in good ole progress and down to earth society.

Hilariously entertaining

If you are a fan of the Liberal Redneck or you aren't this book is for you. Read by the authors in their thick southern drawls makes listening to this book way better than reading it. It is hilarious, smart, sad, honest, and hopeful all at once. These comedian/authors are whip smart and as down home as the come. They explain southern culture in a way even us "damn Yankees" will understand. A must have for people who love the south, hate the south, but more importantly don't understand the south. Wish it was 10 hours longer and will look forward to any books by these guys in the future.

Laugh out loud funny and cringingly honest

I heard of The Liberal Redneck from "Mark in the Morning", a former LA morning radio show. These three fly in the face of several stereotypes about the American South and hammer home the truth about others. They prove that you can be a true hick and not be an a*hole, which may be a surprise to the rest of teh country, if not the world. Excellent work and extremely funny.

This hits

These guys are right on and know exactly what they talked about. I feel incredibly proud of my deep southern roots and appreciate the push to remember that more often. I have been telling all my southern friends that these guys just get it.

If you aren't from the South, I strongly encourage you to pick up The Liberal Redneck Manifesto so that you can learn a thing or 200 about differing experiences and perspectives.

Best book I've read this year and I am grateful that these guys were able to put their thoughts to paper.

Skeeeww!! The South from the mouths of Southerners

A brilliant eye-opener about the modern South as told by three sons of Dixie. Funny, honest, insightful and well balanced between its twin themes: pride and shame. Relatable because the authors are liberals; challenging because they don't hide their pride in their homeland and don't make excuses for any of it. Now drink your latte Tristan

From a Southern British Redneck, it hits and keeps on hitting. If you are British and confused to the hitting reference, just download and remember our cousins are damn wonderful. it hits.
