Smart, hilarious, and incisive, the Liberal Rednecks confront outdated traditions and intolerant attitudes, tackling everything people think they know about the South - the good, the bad, the glorious, and the shameful - in a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

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.

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.
