This song is not meant to make fun if America or Americans. It's supposed to provoke thought so we Americans (the band greenday included) don't mindlessly follow what the media says (like an idiot)but think for ourselves and be no ones idiot pawn to play in their political or crazy movement. Greenday is proclaiming in this song they will not be pawns like the masses but will stand for they believe in not what others telk them to.
