The Lyrics

You look at that corps, and what have you seen?
F**kin’ up the country with Dominion dreams.
Looking not for answers now in these trying times;
Want to run the U.S. along Caliphate-like lines.

Pest pack honky ’crats
Comin’ out of the dark woods
In a Rights Bill daze they got Redneck ways,
And oh, they’re deranged not misunderstood.

A restless pest pack theocrats,
Livin’ in here and now ain’t where it’s at.
They are tryin’ to take hold, it’s a sickness sign.
On the Kool-Aid they’ve been swiggin’,
Fobbed off by most malign.

They read just one book and they long to have it be
The basis of government, like a Wahabi.
They want you in your home to follow their rules;
They say “You, believe in the Lord! Put Him in pub’ schools!”

Pest pack honky ’crats
Comin’ out of the dark woods
In a Theist daze, want no Deist ways.
The Founders’ state they have misunderstood.

A restless pest pack “Tea-ocrats,”
Livin’ in here and now ain’t where it’s at.
They are tryin’ to take hold, it’s an illness sign.
On the host wine one’s been swiggin,’
Yet he ain’t deemed malign?

’cause they ain’t with Rome boys, by Mormons they’re alarmed,
Though Jesus was Yid not Goy, against Jews they’d be armed.
They say it’s their way, all others must go—
And above all it’s the Muslims, though…

They’re likewise dread packs honky ’crats.
It is never any good
To have as basis in gummint places
Religion, no, no country ever should.

Two gents would bring back Cotton Math’. . .
Ricky, e.g., and Rick P are scary ’crats.
Many go for these trolls, a disturbing sign.
And they do not want you thinkin’—
Fun’ to throttle the mind.

Pest pack theocrats… .

Even though it's a lampoon, I think the racial element is unnecessary and misleading. I understand it's from the title of the original song, though.

This one is a disappointment JB. Comes off badly no matter the intention. Honky/Honkey comes from the 1920s when white men searching for Negro prostitutes in black areas would honk their car horns for the prostitute to get in. A white man would never get out of his car and knock on a Negro door. So, Honky/Honkey was invented as a derogatory term for a white man.

I've read your comments guys, but the point of the song is that I'm truly scared sh!tless by the drive, largely by white southern rural fundamentalists--some of them in government, to turn this country into a theocracy. Read "The Family" and "C Street" by Jeff Sharlet. Truly scary stuff. My title may be a bit over the top, but thank Elton John, in part, for that.

Hatter, your etymological explanation is most likely apocryphal. Per online etymology dict. and other sources,the actual source in unknown, but the most likely origin is that it's a corruption of "Hunky": honky also honkey, derogatory slang word for "white person," by 1967, black slang, of unknown origin, perhaps from late 19c. hunky "East-Central European immigrant," a colloquial shortening of Hungarian. Honky in the sense of "factory hand" is attested from 1946.
