And if you're not clapping your hands
You're a terrorist

from Macklemore – American Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

What Macklemore is trying to get at is the “bandwagon” idea. If your not with us, your against us. A lot of southerners are stereotypically racist, and we assume he’s mocking southern americans (picture of Regan…Regan is republican, the south is statistically majority republican) we need to keep in mind this entire song is mockery of a “typical American”
