Rural America – Targeted by Liberals
Rural America is now the whipping boy of the left. It probably went that way after rural Americans put Republicans in the White House both in 2000 and 2016 from the electoral college. So now the left has decided we’re all “bad” people who need to suffer.
UC Berkeley Grad student and instructor Jackson Kernion tweeted last Wednesday:
“I unironically embrace the bashing of rural Americans. They, as a group, are bad people who have made bad life decisions…and we should shame people who aren’t pro-city.” Jackson Kernion
Maybe we shouldn’t feed that jackwagon. Rural America provides the food for our nation, but of course leftists don’t care about trivia like that. They apparently also forget that we are armed. Maybe he should think about THAT as well.

“Kernion began the thread by advocating against affordable healthcare solutions in rural America, saying that “Rural Healthcare Should be expensive! And that expense should be borne by those who choose rural America!”
He argued that promoting a need for “affordable rural healthcare” is equivalent to arguing for rural Americans “to be subsidized by those who choose a more efficient way of life.”
“Same goes for rural broadband. And gas taxes,” Kernion added.
“It should be uncomfortable to live in rural America. It should be uncomfortable to not move,” he wrote.
Kernion tried to justify his statements with economic arguments about not making rural life “*artificially* cheaper,” but quickly devolved into personal attacks against rural and not “pro-city” Americans.”
Of course in usual cowardly fashion, he deleted the tweet, backpedalled, and said that upon retrospect it was “crasser” than he thinks he is at heart. No, as a friend says, scratch a liberal and there will always be a hatemonger lurking beneath.
As if that wasn’t enough, Catholic Bishop Frank DeWayne asked rural America at the USCCB to “bend the knee” and come to the table to accept “sensible” gun laws that are designed to stop gun violence. In the name of ‘public safety,’ you know. Has he ever actually looked at how well those laws are working? Obviously not. They aren’t working at all.
Rural America is being told to shut up and accept gun laws. We are being told to shut up and start moving to the big city and even suffer because we are rural. We are being told that only cities are prosperous and good people live there and we’re all “bad.”
Let’s see. San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, Seattle, et al, all are once beautiful cities that have gone to hell because of liberals who just throw money at a problem instead of fixing it. And that’s not even counting smog, traffic snarls, crime-infested streets: so no thanks, liberal jackwagons, I’ll keep my rural area AND my guns.
“We started as a rural country. We remain at our heart linked to rural communities. Thank goodness for small towns, farms, and traditional values.” Doug Schoen, Fox Contributor
