If there’s one thing for certain about Aaron Lewis, it’s that he has his own opinions, and he’s gonna let you know about them too.
You know exactly what you’re getting when you sign up for an Aaron Lewis concert. You’re gonna get some decent country music, you’re gonna get some Staind tunes from the early 2000s, and you’re gonna get a TON of politics.
If that’s your thing, you’re gonna love it. If it’s not, chances are you’re not gonna be caught dead at an Aaron Lewis show anyways.
He played a show in Portsmouth, Ohio last Thursday, and although admitted before he began that he didn’t want to “go into some big, get-myself-in trouble dissertation,” he still couldn’t contain himself about his thoughts on the current state of the country, and what’s going on overseas in Ukraine.
The 49-year-old stopped in the middle of the show, and told the crowd:
“All I’m gonna say is this: Question everything. Everything that they’re telling you right now is a lie… everything. We need to come to grips with something, people. This is our country.
We own the most corrupt country in the world. So my question is what are we gonna do about it? Because we put these people where they sit… to become corrupt and to sell us out all for their gain and not for ours. They’re supposed to represent us, not themselves. And they’re all guilty of it… 90 percent of them.”
He continued to slam Democrats who he believes are trying to destroy the country, and even called out Republicans who he said are just watching it happen.
He also noted that we have no order, we have no president, and Ukraine is where the billionaires from around the world go to launder their money:
“I don’t know who’s worse… the Democrats that are trying to destroy this country or the Republicans that sit idly by while they do so. They all need to be removed. We need to start voting for people that aren’t lifetime politicians because those are the most lecherous, snake-in-the-grass pieces of shit that we can ever possibly put into power.
The next governor needs to be you. The next senator needs to be you. We need to pick from our peers, people… people that have good ideas that we can stand behind. Not these fucking snake oil salesmen that tell us everything we want to hear. And until we wake up, this country is going off the cliff, people.
We have no order. We have no president. Every single day that goes by, we lose standing in the world. Everyone’s laughing at us. Everyone is positioning themselves against us. And it’s not us… it’s the government that we put in power.
These are the people that are making us look bad throughout the entire world, the same people that have you convinced that we all need to support Ukraine even though all of their money laundering systems, all of their everything, the way that they get all their kickbacks and they wash everything is all through the Ukraine.”
After an audience member shouted “Fuck Joe Biden,” he continued on saying that it was bigger than just Joe Biden. He blamed the media, the internet, and the people who control them:
“Listen, it’s bigger than ‘Fuck Joe Biden.’ It is. It is. It’s the media. It’s the Internet and the people that control it. Everything is against us in this room… everything. Because when we lose, they win.
Look what happened over shutdown. Look how many small businesses got bankrupt and closed forever. Look how the big corporations made billions and billions of dollars. They just took all that wealth out of our hands and they put it in theirs.
They took your jobs. They made you believe lies. They made you believe that a vaccine was gonna keep you safe. They made you think that a fucking mask was gonna keep you safe. They made you think that avoiding your friends and your family and staying locked up in your house was gonna somehow keep you safe.
But guess what… didn’t we all get COVID? Didn’t every single of us in this fucking room get COVID and live to tell the tale? We’re okay. I survived. I didn’t stick that poison in my fucking body. I did just fine. I had it twice. I’m not fucking dead.
Don’t believe a word they fucking tell you… not one word.”
And then… it really took a turn…
“You know, as fucked up as it sounds, maybe we should listen to what Vladimir Putin is saying.”
Ummm, what now?
“Maybe, just maybe, when Klaus Schwab and George Soros and every other dirty fucking earth-destroying motherfucker all jumps on the same bandwagon… maybe, just maybe we should fucking take a good look at that.
Why are they trying to protect Ukraine so much? What do they all have to lose?”
He also noted a few more conspiracies going on overseas, such as Ukrainian soldiers holding “wooden guns” and actors “pretending to be dead.”
He then added:
“It’s all bullshit… it’s all bullshit.
Have you seen the pictures with wooden guns and all the bodies in body bags laying in the background, and all of a sudden one of the bodies starts moving and fucking sits up and fixes its fucking body bag while the reporter is reporting? People, if you haven’t seen that, you’d better start fucking looking elsewhere.
If you haven’t seen Vladimir Putin actually say that he’s fighting the ‘Deep State’ right now, which is the same people we’re fighting, which is the same people everywhere on the face of this earth that people are fighting for freedom
You know, we need to reassess and think about who it is, who these people are, what makes them worthy of us putting all of our faith and all of our trust in these fucking snake oil salesmen.”
By the end of the eight-minute rant, he also said there are probably going to be negative headlines (ya think?) about his speech, before beginning on his song “Am I The Only One.”
“Fuck ’em if they can’t hear the truth… it seems like nobody wants to hear the truth these days. They just wanna put their masks on and walk around like fucking zombies.”
