These are the people who scare the liberals the most. Yet they are some of the most giving, selfless people in the world. And they are descending upon the hurricane-soaked coast of Texas in droves, anxious to help in any way that they can.
Who are they? Why, they are the “Redneck Army,” of course! Are they an official organization? No. Do they have a leader? No. Do they have to give of their time, and use their own money to help people they have never met? No. But there they are–veterans, bass fisherman, hunters–patrolling the area in their old pickup trucks, pulling their fishing boats through the catastrophe that is the Texas coast, just scanning the area, anxious to find some way to help.

Meantime, while these men and women are out making a real difference, latte-sipping liberals continue to lounge in their comfy chairs, criticizing Trump’s trip to Texas, while liberal media outlets (CNN, anyone?) stage dramatic rescues in order to bolster their sagging ratings, and fake charities are started by liberals looking to make a fast buck from the suffering of the hurricane victims.
It’s men like Todd McLaren, an unofficial member of the unofficial Redneck Army, who are saving the day for so many. As McLaren stated on his Twitter feed:
Hundreds and hundreds of small boats pulled by countless pickups and SUVs from across the South are headed for Houston. Almost all of them driven by men. They’re using their own property, sacrificing their own time, spending their own money, and risking their own lives for one reason: to help total strangers in desperate need.
Most of them are by themselves. Most are dressed like the redneck duck hunters and bass fisherman they are. Many are veterans. Most are wearing well-used gimme-hats, t-shirts, and jeans; and there’s a preponderance of camo. Most are probably gun owners, and most probably voted for Trump.
Mr. McLaren recognizes the true unsung heroes of this disaster, ordinary American citizens who have come together, asking for nothing, who are the epitome of what it means to be an American.
