The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.
Their ongoing meltdown, as witnessed by Americans since the election returns came in on the night of November 8th, 2016, is a reaction caused by their own unbridled and unsupported arrogance.
Just like their fellow Modern American Liberals who run Democratic Party, the disconnected “talking heads” in Tinsel Town and the Big Apple never saw Trump’s victory coming.
At this point, all their incessant national temper tantrum is doing, is making them look like fools.
FoxNews.com reports that
MSNBC host Joy Reid thinks that rural Americans are “the core threat to our democracy” and pointed to a series of tweets by liberal author Jared Yates Sexton that claimed Trump supporters “do not believe in the Constitution or any founding principles unless they’re advantageous” as proof of her far-left theory.
“By 2040, about 70% of Americans are expected to live in the 15 largest states. They will have only 30 senators representing them, while the remaining 30% of Americans will have 70 senators representing them,” MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin tweeted over the weekend.
Reid, who tweets so often that it’s amazing she finds time to do anything else, has a feed that is essentially the anti-Trump talking points of the far left on a daily basis. While Sexton never specifically mentioned the “rural minority” in his rant, the MSNBC host took it upon herself to quote Griffin’s tweet add her own commentary tied to Sexton’s thread.
“This is the core threat to our democracy. The rural minority — the people @JYSexton just wrote a long thread about — have and will continue to have disproportionate power over the urban majority,” Reid tweeted.
Reid said gerrymandering reform and “the abolition of the Electoral College would be a start” when engaging with followers on how to fix the issue.
The Resurgent editor, radio host and Fox News contributor Erick Erickson responded, “Griffin’s original tweet and Reid’s response highlight a core threat to our constitutional system: basic ignorance.”
Reid seems to use hateful rhetoric on a regular basis and has called Trump supporters “deplorables,” claimed that living in Trump’s America is the “worst time to be a human” in the history of the world and even referred to the Trump administration as “the apocalypse” in recent memory.
While outwardly mocking Middle America, Reid pointed to the Twitter rant of the man who recently published an anti-Trump book titled, “The People Are Going to Rise Like the Waters Upon Your Shore,” that reflects on the Trump movement. Sexton recently tweeted that “Midwesterners put up Confederate flags” because of “racism” but also “dream of being able to rise up and remake this country into a fascist place.” However, that comment was tweeted after Sexton inspired Reid with his 22-tweet thread.
“With Trump’s base showing strong preferences for authoritarianism, and continuing to support a serial predator of children, it’s time to look this problem in its face,” Sexton wrote to kick off the thread that inspired the MSNBC host to mock rural Americans. “This isn’t a political problem. This is a societal issue, a major, major existential problem with who we are and how we view the world.”
He continued, saying the problem isn’t about Democrats and Republicans but rather “a substantial group in this country who are okay with a president who would stamp out free speech, free press, and are comfortable with foreign influence and collusion.” Sexton said the people he was referencing don’t care about mass shootings, support fascism and “didn’t blink when a woman was murdered by white supremacists,” — an apparent reference to the killing in Charlottesville, Va., last August.
“They only care about our laws and customs when they help them. They do not believe in the Constitution or any founding principles unless they’re advantageous,” he wrote. “They’ve always been here. They’ve been slaveholders. They’ve been confederates. They’ve been our neighbors. They’ve been our family.”
He continued: “Republicans fostered them as a means to push their policies and leveraged their worst instincts. Now, they’ve lost hold of the leash and have been taken over from the inside.”
Sexton said Trump “didn’t create” the issue but “is the total personification of this worldview.”
The liberal author added, “there’s literally no telling what they’ll stand by” and noted that “there are Americans who hold Adolf Hitler in high regard” because he had “good” ideas.
“If people like Trump continue to push them further, there’s literally no telling what they’ll allow or what they’ll support. This is how a democracy backslides into a fascist state,” Sexton wrote.
Erickson wrote, “To have a national ‘news’ host call rural America a ‘core threat’ to our democracy is both striking arrogance and striking ignorance.”
Dear Joy Reid…
First off, allow me to introduce myself.
I am one of those average Americans, living in the Northwest corner of the State of Mississippi, whom you have, in your arrogance, mistakenly labeled as “Rural” simply because we do not live in the densely crowded metropolitan areas of either coast and we voted for Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America.
You refer to us as being a “rural minority”.
That’s funny. Last night, as I was writing this response to you, I took a look once again at the 2016 Electoral Map and was once again struck by the fact that 80% of the continental land mass known as the contiguous United States was 80% red and just 20% blue.
Doesn’t the word “minority” mean “a smaller number of”?
You also claim that those of us residing in the area which you Coastal Liberals tend to refer to as “Flyover Country” but which we refer to as “America’s heartland” as “the core threat to our democracy”.
Forgive my bluntness, but Civics Class must have been one of those which you skipped in order to hang out with the “cool kids”.
America is not a “democracy”. Our Founding Fathers, in their infinite wisdom, created this Blessed Land as a Constitutional Republic in order to provide fair and equal representation to all areas of the country, whether they be densely populated “urban” areas or sparsely populated “rural” areas.
No American’s vote is more important than somebody else’s.
When I voted down here, outside Memphis, Tennessee, in the Northwest Corner of the Magnolia State on November 8, 2016, it counted the same as your vote in one of the boroughs of New York City.
The Founders created and put in place the Electoral College in order to prevent just what you and the rest of your Fellow Travelers in the New Far left Democratic Party are suddenly crying for: a nation where its leaders are selected by mob rule in which special interest groups of a minority political philosophy join together to form a voting bloc in order to “radically change” the course of a Sovereign Nation.
In the case of Modern America Liberals, such as yourself, this would have allowed you and your Fellow Travelers to change our Constitutional Republic into a “Democratic” Socialist Nation, a form of government based on Marxist Theory which has never worked in any country in which it has been tried.
If that is the sort of country you which to live in…move to Venezuela.
I am certain that they could use your “help”.
By the way, concerning Free Speech, why does your “news channel” turn off the microphones of Conservative Guests when they are making your hosts look stupid? Also, why did ABC cancel the Hit Conservative Sitcom “Last Man Standing”?
And, addressing your concern about “extremists”, just what do you consider Black Lives Matter and Antifa to be?
Oh, and before you call me a “fascist”, you do realize that the term “Nazi” was an abbreviation for “National Socialist Party”, don’t you?
In conclusion, Ms. Reid, it has been your own arrogance, yours and your Fellow Travelers’, which led to the election of Donald J. Trump as our 45th President.
Well…that and the fact that you “Broadcast Journalists” (and, I’m being generous), became so egotistical that you started believing all of the fake news stories that you attempted to propagandize and indoctrinate average Americans with on behalf of the Democratic Party and the miserable, hateful loser of a 2016 Presidential Candidate whom they chose, the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton.
As it says in Proverbs 16:18,
Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
Or, as you guys in your self-proclaimed “urban majority” like to say,
Payback’s a…well…you know.
Enjoy the next 8 years.
Until He Comes,
