Eddie Montgomery Goes on Twitter Rant About the U.S. Government [NSFW]
News of two Russian bombers flying just off the coast of California didn't sit well with many Americans, including Montgomery Gentry's Eddie Montgomery. The singer vented on Twitter with a 12-tweet message criticizing the handling of a few recent social and political events, and politicians in Washington, D.C.
The flight of the Russian bombers took place on July 4 (according to CNN), and is said to have included what some are interpreting as a thinly-veiled threat to the United States. The news resurfaced as it became known this wasn't the first time Russia sent jets toward the California coast on Independence Day.
From there Montgomery mentions the shooting of five American servicemen in Chattanooga, the Iran situation and agreement, and what he calls a secret society that lives in our nation's capital. He ends by suggesting Americans "fire them all and start over" and "take our great country back."
As a duo, Montgomery Gentry have long been proud supporters of the U.S. military. Last month they released their Folks Like Us album, featuring two singles ("Headlights" and "Folks Like Us") that peaked just inside the Top 50 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Montgomery's partner Troy Gentry is on Twitter, but hasn't been active in over a year.
