Tell 'em the truth and they call you a traitor

Meaning

He’s saying if you expose the truth about whats really going on in america then the government will label you as a traitor because most of it is negative and they don’t want to look bad.

Immortal Technique is referring to the phenomena in American politics that has equated “patriotism” with agenda of the defense industry (weapons manufacturers, warfare logistics companies, etc.).

As a result, investigating or questioning the official story of many events in recent American history (including the terroristic attacks of 9/11/2001, The War on Terrorism, and The War on Drugs) makes one the target of many mainstream politicians and media personalities.
