According to the political left, liberalism in America is on the rise. It’s supposedly why our Vice President was known as the single most liberal member of Congress. And it’s why our nation, according to the 2020 election results, handed the White House to a puppet of the progressive left.
They would also claim that as the reason why critical race theory, defunding the police, and other Democratic agenda points are being adopted all over the nation.
There’s just one problem. It’s all a farce.
How do I know?
Well, let’s take a look at the #1 song on iTunes charts at the moment.
As you well know, popular entertainment such as songs, books, movies, TV shows, etc., can be an excellent indicator of just what the American people as a whole value and think is essential. After all, no one listens to music, watches movies, or goes to any other kind of entertainment that they don’t agree with on some level, right?
So what’s the number one song in America right now?
It’s called “Snowflake” by Canadian rapper Tom MacDonald. And, as its name implies, it’s all about calling out liberal snowflakes for their ruination of our nation.
Here’s the chorus or refrain:
“Y’all are so fake, oh no/ The forecast said that there’d be snowflakes, whoa-oh/ You can’t make us see it your way, no way, gasoline and propane/ More flames, oh no/ No more snowflakes.”
Basically, it’s one big and rather effective trashing of liberal America, calling out their hypocrisies and all.
I mean, check out this verse.
“You think taking guns away will save our kids from the killings/ But your pro-choice abortion kills way more children.”
He manages to be both pro-Second Amendment and pro-life in just one line and all while taking liberals to task.
In another line, MacDonald blasts the left for their hypocrisy on racism, saying, “I hear ‘em preaching at a protest that hatred’s the problem/ But hating straight men, white folks, and Christians is common.”
He brings in race, our controversial elections, and even our messed-up priorities.
“There’s a race war here, elections based on fear/ Black lives only matter once every four years/ Soldiers died for this country and every one of us benefits/ Give welfare to the bums and forget about the veterans.”
MacDonald includes stuff about dirty politicians:
“If you lie to the government they’ll put you in prison/ But when they lie to all of us it’s called being a politician.”
He mentions the liberal ideal of capitalism:
“Coco Cola telling people they should be less white/ They preaching tolerance but if you disagree, they fight.”
He even brings in immigration.
“If America’s so terrible and racist/ It probably isn’t safe to encourage immigration, just saying/ All the contradictions are embarrassing.”
And yet, beginning on June 9, this is the song America chose to listen to, download, stream, and buy more than any other. And in just four days of it being released on Friday, its music video already had more views than popular artists like The Weeknd, Olivia Rodrigo, Dua Lipa, and Korean boy-band BTS.
Some 4.5 million and counting views so far…

Even Tom MacDonald himself was shocked to find his song resonate with so many people.
He tweeted on Monday, after seeing his song at the top of the charts, “I woke up to see “Snowflakes’ still #1 on the charts. Songs like this aren’t supposed to top charts. They aren’t supposed to get millions of views. They aren’t supposed to win… but I guess there’s still ppl out there who give a damn about the truth.”
And that’s exactly it, isn’t it?
I mean, if people didn’t care about the controversial ideas MacDonald sings about in this song, it’d be at the bottom on nearly every chart out there. And yet, it’s not.
Now, of course, the song has its fair share of haters and plenty who want to trash-talk him right back. But it’s the mounting views and the increasing popularity that really say it all.
And why wouldn’t true Americans not like lines like the following?
“Black folks and white folks divided by the news/ But we’re all the same, we are red, white, and blue.”
Or, my personal favorite, “Ashamed to be American? OK, that’s cool/ Cause honestly, we are all ashamed of you, too.”
