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Smart, hilarious, and incisive, the Liberal Rednecks confront outdated traditions and intolerant attitudes, tackling everything people think they know about the South - the good, the bad, the glorious, and the shameful - in a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.

A southern grandma's opinion

As a southern grandma I can attest to the accuracy of the content, as a former probation officer and current addiction counselor and counselor educator I have lived some of the uglier parts. All that said you will laugh til you cry when you listen to this. I am so glad the boys (the authors - I'm a grandma so I can call 'em boys) did their own narration. It's just fabulous! If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!

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.

More accurate representation than Hillbilly Elegy

As someone who actually grew up in Appalachia and currently lives in Tennessee, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I read it right after I read Hillbilly Elegy. The problems in Appalachia are complicated and at least these authors actually grew up in the south. I understand they were two vastly different books, but Hillbilly Elegy was written by someone who grew up in Ohio and basically concluded that Appalachians could fix their own problems if they weren't so lazy. This book blames some of the South's problems rightfully on its inhabitants while pointing out the numerous external factors that contribute to the many issues we face. It was also hilarious. Highly recommended for liberals and conservatives alike.

read this book now

smart. Well told. Relevant and important for all. Please review this book with an open mind and get that we shouldn't rest at difference but move to understand the reason for those differences. When we do that we find common ground. Thank you Trae Corey Andrew.

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.

Displaced Southerner

As a displaced Southerner living in NYC, I absolutely loved this audio book. It made me miss home. A lot.
The language was a bit coarse and too yellow at times, but I got over it.
We have a lot of work to do and this book made me want to head back home to do my part.

Pharmacy tech in Mississippi

I'm a pharmacy technician in Mississippi Kosciusko to be exact and no you've never heard of it because it's a tiny town with basically nothing here. There are However a massive number of pillbillies and red necks I come from a family of them and I also happen to be Latina which has fucked with my identity massively because of the shit that my family talked about Mexico whilst also saying but your daddy was Mexican it's ok 🙄 anyway my point is this book gets it all right like so exactly correct I laughed I cried and as a southern born woman who has both shame and pride about where I come from I lived the hell out of this book and I highly recommend it I wish it was longer or had a sequel but no doubt you will not regret this read!

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
