You wouldn't, if you caught Bin Laden
You wouldn't give him one in the butt?
For America?
If you said "no homo" right after you did it?
It doesn't count if it's terrorists

from Macklemore – American Lyrics on Rap Genius


These lines are all creating irony by depicting “Aberdeen” as gay, even though the whole song he has been stereo typically against it. “Aberdeen” is also aware that he sounded gay, so he attempts to cover it up, resulting in even more homoerotic undertones.
