Country Music Legend Charlie Daniels Wants Iran To Fear American 'Swamp Folks' And 'Mountain Men'

Ummm... what?

Country music star Charlie Daniels appeared in a new clip that's gone viral online, but it wasn't a video for a late-career hit song. Instead, it was a warning to "the ayatollahs of Iran and every terrorist you enable." 

The clip, released online by the National Rifle Association, showed the 79-year-old insulting President Barack Obama and people who have attended America's top universities. 

"You might've met our fresh-faced, flower-child president and his weak-kneed Ivy League friends, but you haven't met America," declared the singer of "The Devil Went Down To Georgia." 

He continued: 

"You haven't met the heartland or the people who will defend this nation with their bloody, calloused bare hands, if that's what it takes.

You haven't met the steelworkers and the hard-rock miners or the swamp folks in Cajun country who can wrestle a full-grown gator out of the water.

You haven't met the farmers, the cowboys, the loggers and the truck drivers.

You don't know the mountain men who live off the land or the brave cops who fight the good fight in the urban war zones."

"No, you've never met America," he warned. "And you oughta pray you never do."

The clip was part of an ongoing series called "Freedom's Safest Place," which is largely a collection of grievances against politicians in general and the Obama administration in particular.
