Musique : “Fake Woke”, le morceau de rap blanc d’extrême-droite qui fait un carton

Une chanson composée et interprétée par Tom MacDonald, un ancien lutteur Canadien vivant à Los Angeles, se hisse à la première place de téléchargement sur sur Itunes aux États-Unis. Le clip vu 2 millions de fois sur YouTube, sans publicité et sans le soutien de l’industrie musicale. Le morceau se nomme «Fake Woke» et dénonce l’hypocrisie de la “Cancel Culture”.

Il s’agit d’une diatribe originale qui penche définitivement vers la droite et évoque l’esprit de “Make America Great Again”, sans mentionner Donald Trump.

La chanson attaque le féminisme, Black Lives Matter, Cardi B, critique Eminem et s’en prend à cancel culture (“La Cancel culture conduit désormais le monde, la planète est devenue folle/ Vous pouvez étiqueter tout ce que nous disons comme étant homophobe ou raciste)

Un site web d’étudiants australiens appelé Honi Soit a écrit : “MacDonald insiste cependant sur le fait qu’il n’est pas raciste et n’a pas participé à des “activités racistes”, ce qu’il résume le plus souvent par “posséder un esclave” ou dire des insultes à caractère racial. “Vous faites de moi le méchant en diabolisant ma race”, crie-t-il effectivement dans le troisième couplet de la chanson. Il présente une vision incroyablement dépassée et unidimensionnelle du racisme. MacDonald semble plus préoccupé par la défense des Blancs que par le racisme systémique légitime.

MacDonald ne se revendique d’aucune ligne politique précise, il a simplement mis en ligne “Fake Woke” sur iTunes et YouTube. Mais il a réussi à trouver des milliers de clients. Cela devrait inquiéter tout le monde. MacDonald a 10 chansons en streaming sur Spotify dont une intitulée “Everybody Hates Me”, qui a 20 millions de flux. Parmi les autres titres, on trouve “White Boy” et “No Lives Matter”. Jusqu’à présent, “Fake Woke” n’est pas encore référencé sur Spotify ou sur Apple Music.


Paroles de la chanson:

[Verse 1]
I think it’s crazy I’m the one who they labeled as controversial
And Cardi B is the role model for 12-year-old girls
There’s rappers pushin’ Xanax at the top of the Billboard
But if I mention race in a song, I’m scared I’ll get killed for it
It’s backwards, it’s gettin’ exponentially dumb
It’s more difficult to get a job than purchase a gun
Eminem used to gay bash and murder his mum
And now he doesn’t want fans if they voted for Trump
We’re ashamed to be American, you should probably love it
‘Cause you have the right to say it and not gеt strung up in public
As children, we werе taught how to walk and talk
But the system wants adults to sit down and shut up
Cancel culture runs the world now, the planet went crazy
Label everything we say as homophobic or racist
If you’re white, then you’re privileged, guilty by association
All our childhood heroes got Me-Too’d or they’re rapists

[Pre-Chorus 1]
They never freed the slaves, they realized that they don’t need the chains
They gave us tiny screens, we think we free ’cause we can’t see the cage
They knew that race war would be the game they need to play
For people to pick teams, they use the media to feed the flame

They so fake woke, facts don’t care ’bout feelin’s
They know they won’t tell me what to believe in
They so fake woke, same old safe zones
They so fake woke, facts don’t care ’bout your feelin’s

[Verse 2]
I think it’s crazy all these people screamin’ facts, but they fake woke
Hate their neighbor ’cause he wears a mask or he stays home
Has a daughter, but his favorite artist said he slays hoes
Picks her up from school, music slaps on the way home
Censorship’s an issue ’cause they choose what they erase
There’s a difference between hate speech and speech that you hate
I think Black Lives Matter was the stupidest name
When the system’s screwin’ everyone exactly the same
I just wanna spend Thanksgivin’ Day with food and my family
Without bein’ accused of celebrating native casualties
We got so divided, it’s black and white and political
Republicans are bigots, libtards if you’re liberal
There’s riots in our streets, and it’s just gettin’ worse
Y’all screamin’, “Defund the police”, y’all are genius for sure
They’re underfunded already, they’re way too busy to work
Order food and call the cops, see what reaches you first

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Segregation ended, that’s a lie in itself
That was a strategy to make us think they were tryin’ to help
They knew that racism was hot if they designed it to sell
We buy up every single box and divide us ourselves

They so fake woke, facts don’t care ’bout feelin’s
They know they won’t tell me what to believe in
They so fake woke, same old safe zones
They so fake woke, facts don’t care ’bout your feelin’s

We use violence to get peace and wonder why it isn’t workin’
That’s like sleepin’ with a football team to try and be a virgin
Politicians are for sale and someone always makes the purchase
But you and I cannot afford it, our democracy is worthless
If a man has mental illness, call him crazy, say it silently
When country’s goin’ crazy, we accept it as society
Get sick and take a pill, when the side effects get you high
You get addicted like these rappers dying fighting with sobriety
Censoring the facts turns our children into idiots
They claim it’s for our safety, I’ll tell you what it really is
Removing information that empowers all the citizens
The truth doesn’t damage points of view that are legitimate
They’re tryna change amen to a-men and women
How’d we let ’em make praying a microaggression?
Instead of asking God for the strength to keep winnin’
We cheat to get ahead, and then we ask Him for forgiveness

Feminism used to be the most righteous of fights
But these days it feels like they secretly hate guys
I don’t trust anyone who bleeds for a week and don’t die
I’m just kiddin’, but everything else that I said is right

They so fake woke, facts don’t care ’bout feelin’s
They know they won’t tell me what to believe in
They so fake woke, same old safe zones
They so fake woke, facts don’t care ’bout your feelin’s
