  • Resistance in Flyoverlandia

    Posted by Sgt. Mom on September 30th, 2016 (All posts by )

    I followed a link from one of my usual daily reads to Angelo Codevilla’s of-linked most recent essay, After the Republic and read it with the usual sense of renewed depression which usually attends me on reading a disquisition on our current political/social conditions. (Wretchard at Belmont Club and Victor Davis Hansen also produce pretty much the same results – what oft was thought, but ne’er so well expressed.)
    Especially this paragraph:

    Who, a generation ago, could have guessed that careers and social standing could be ruined by stating the fact that the paramount influence on the earth’s climate is the sun, that its output of energy varies and with it the climate? Who, a decade ago, could have predicted that stating that marriage is the union of a man and a woman would be treated as a culpable sociopathy, or just yesterday that refusing to let certifiably biological men into women’s bathrooms would disqualify you from mainstream society? Or that saying that the lives of white people “matter” as much as those of blacks is evidence of racism? These strictures came about quite simply because some sectors of the ruling class felt like inflicting them on the rest of America. Insulting presumed inferiors proved to be even more important to the ruling class than the inflictions’ substance.

    Repeating the last sentence for emphasis: “Insulting presumed inferiors proved to be even more important to the ruling class than the inflictions’ substance.” Especially since the tidal-spew of insult from that we think of as the bi-coastal ruling class, the gatekeepers, the fortunate 1%, the intellectual class and the media darlings towards ordinary, working-class and middle-class residents of what I have begun thinking of as Flyoverlandia has achieved tsunami-depth in the last few years … indeed, the last few months.

    They hate us, they hate us, they really, really do. The automatic sneer, the curling-upper-lip snobbish and very public contempt on display of late in any number of arenas is honestly getting to be too much to take. It was bad enough seeing the Tea Party trashed and demonized, and an otherwise agreeable, competent female and locally popular politician like Sarah Palin savaged by the national media minions of the ruling class – all because she wasn’t a member, or the spouse/spawn of a well-established member of the bicoastal ruling party club. The usual social justice class warriors who have somewhat of a sense for history (a diminishing number, let it be noted) lament and condemn the cruel snobbery of the Victorian upper classes, but honestly, I can’t see how they can keep a straight face when doing so, unless catastrophically deprived of any sense of irony. It was bad enough being put off ever listening to Garrison Keillor on Prairie Home Companion, when it became very, very obvious that he actually despised the people who made up real-life communities in Flyoverlandia.

    But I do think that Codevilla has caught one aspect right; the vicious joy of insulting presumed inferiors without any thought of consequence has now overtaken a large number of people and organizations whom you would have thought would know better, both in an economic sense, and in a political sense. Hillary Clinton and her so-called “basket of deplorables” is the culmination of this kind of contempt brought to its full and nasty flowering. The brouhaha over gay weddings and the insistence on group bathrooms, locker rooms and changing rooms being open to anyone claiming identity with a gender at variance with their actual genitalia is another – and exacerbated when an individual expressing objections or even just mild reservation gets condemned as the worst sort of bigot. Then, there is apparent willingness of the NFL to go all out for demonstrations of good-think with regard to Black Lives Matter. You might think that an enterprise which depends on the goodwill of an audience to consider avoid antagonizing a large portion of that audience … but then Hollywood – by which I mean those who produce movies and broadcast entertainment – have been contemptuous of Flyoverlandia’s mainstream, socially conservative, mildly religious values for decades. This was noted in this book, originally published in 1992 and do not appear to have paid much of a price for alienating a large mainstream audience.

    Until now, anyway; is it all coming to a head, with residents of Flyoverlandia setting their teeth and drawing a line in the sand? I suppose one can think of the enthusiasm for Donald Trump as an indicator that yes – people are fed up and pissed off. Falling viewership for NFL games this season so far might be another, although there might be other explanations for that. Are there other theaters in which Flyoverlandians are resisting, or even hitting back against the contemptuous bi-coastal ruling class? Discuss.

      Aside from entertainment value, not much purpose in discussion. What we are watching is similar to the change from pagan Rome to Christian Rome. What Hillary calls “the deplorables” are remnant of the old, Christian West now weakening and disappearing. (I have little doubt that disappearance will be helped along by murder, more than just a few murders here-and-there in race riots.) Then will come the purifications as the various Leftist factions fight it out, as various Christian sects fought to settle the meaning of triune God.

      The only possible correct is the replacement of the elite, the ruling class by another elite, that, unfortunately, does not exist.

    2. Mike K Says:

      I think a lot of it is the adolescent-parent relationship prolonged well past adolescence.

      The Baby Boomers hated their parents and considered them ignorant boobs, sort of an H.L. Mencken attitude without the Nazi affection.

      Now, we have two generations raised by Boomers and their children. The Boomers’ parents fought World War II and came home just wanting peace and quiet. They sang “Don’t Fence Me In” and thought they had made the world safe for democracy.

      In fact, they had made it safe for two generations of hedonist twits.

      Now, as the parents’ generation fades away, they are left with no guidance but their own feckless appetites. Unisex bathrooms would really get their grandparents’ goat except the grandparents who made the world work are not around to be outraged. The Lord of the Flies is coming to explain the world, At least that part of it with flush toilets. I wonder how long they will still work with no intelligent plumbers to keep them working ?

      My generation will be next to go and then there will be very little adult supervision.

    3. Sgt. Mom Says:

      Except, Dr. K – in Flyoverlandia, there are a fair number of people of my generation, and my daughter’s generation who don’t buy the social justice warrior hype. Don’t know how clearly we can make our voices heard against the blaring of the mainstream media megaphone. But we are here, and frankly – some of us are a bit pissed off. Me, I feel like I have gone through my whole life, cleaning up after the 1968-Peace-n’Free-Love generation. All of that, and no decent music to show for it.

    4. Brian Says:

      One of the most amazing revelations of the past decade has been the level to which the GOP establishment, both political and media, hates its voter base, those segments of the population that they always allegedly championed. That author of that book you link to is a prime example. He’s gone absolutely bonkers over the last year.

    5. Sgt. Mom Says:

      He among a great many others, Brian. Doesn’t negate the insight of the original book, which was that movie-makers were making movies for each other, rather than the broader audience. Seriously, I looked around at certain entertainers, and thinkers whom had once been … well, at least non-offensive … and suddenly went totally, ineffably bonkers. Something in the water, the air, or something in themselves. I have to wonder …

      I agree with ErisGuy that Christianity in the West is coming to an end. Back in the 60’s I wrote a short essay for a class assignment arguing that what was missing from modernity was a suitable religion. I think that is still the case. Christianity has its strong points and I think its spread in China and Korea is sort of a secret weapon that we can no longer match.

    8. Christopher B Says:

      Don’t discount the number of people in Flyoverlandia that really really want to be part of the 1%, and if they don’t have the talent brains or luck to get there legitimately, are more than happy doing a pale imitation by hating the people around them.

    9. Mike K Says:

      I’m kind of feeling end of the worldish today.

      One of my sailing heroes died today. He was 94 and one of the last of the real amateurs in sport. He refused to have anything to do with the America’s Cup which has become a sort of sailing example of the world of excess. The crews are all professional sailors and do nothing else. When I was sailing competitively we called them boatn****rs and they would deliver the boat and maintain it but nobody expected to crew an entire boat with them.

      I know that sounds snobby but you had to make a living and sail a boat you could afford. I remember Kilroy at a meeting of a sailing group listening to some professional sailor who sailed a rich man’s boat, complaining about something to do with sails. Kilroy got up and said, “I own my own boat and buy my own sails,” and stormed out.

      Today billionaires own huge boats and have them sailed by professional crews. I guess it is alright. It just isn’t my sport. I’m grumpy today as I see the world going to hell in a handbasket.

      I owned my own boat and bought my own sails and my crew were kids under 22.

      And we came within 9 minutes of beating Roy Disney and his millions and his professional crew. He was actually a nice guy and I knew him too. He is also gone to stomach cancer at an age younger than I am now.

      Sorry to be grumpy today.

    10. Mike K Says:

      My second link was supposed to be this one.

      Sorry.

      they don’t have the talent brains or luck to get there legitimately, are more than happy doing a pale imitation by hating the people around them.

      Not many. There are far more of them in West LA hating everyone who doesn’t like living in a rabbit warren.

      Hold up there. The Boomers were causing all sorts of trouble back in the 60s but it was the Greatest Generation who were in power and the crimes of immigration reform and the CRA are all on them. Later generations didn’t fix what the Greatest Generation destroyed and they added to the problem.

      Remove 80 million 3rd world voters and the crazy liberals in the Democratic Party would be mostly irrelevant.

    12. Bill Brandt Says:

      MikeK – it is OK to feel grumpy once in awhile. I for one enjoy your insight and expertise in your posts. So much has gone to money – look at the concours.. The classic concours that we know, where old cars are lovingly displayed and restored – was started IIRC by Phil Hill (yes that Phil Hill) when he went to Pebble Beach and proudly showed his family’s Pierce Arrow that he maintained all those years – this was in the early 50s.

      Prior to that a concours showed manufacturer’s new models.

      Anyway I read that if one could bring a fictional Duesenberg straight off the assembly line in Indiana, transport it today it would get only a 90/100. Money and fanatical restoration beyond what even the factory workers would do – to even a Duesie – has driven judging.

      Anyway time for bed.

    13. Whitehall Says:

      Another field that has gone full elitist snob has been book publishing, at least in the serious fiction branch.

      When was the last time you, as a man, read a novel with pretensions to art? Male readers have abandoned the market given its dominance by elitists in New York City.

      Women gravitate to romance novels that follow a strict formula. Men read action novels like Clancy but both fields are more gender projection fantasies than enduring works of art that can speak to everyone’s human condition.

      E-publishing may break that “gate keeper” seat of control but the problems of reaching a broad audience and forming a common canon have not been resolved.

      But just wait until Bezos starts censoring Kindle.

    14. Mrs. Davis Says:

      TangoMan is correct. The “Greatest” Generation, which wasn’t, was exhausted by 1960. The Depession, war, baby boom had taken their toll. They got their president in 1960 and by 1964, the leftists had won and the GGs followed orders. The only one of the seven GG presidents to serve two full terms was Reagan. Then there was the silents who couldn’t even produce a president. The deed was pretty well done by 1992. The Republicans had the opportunity to right the ship, but the example of greed was too great. It will be interesting to see how historians will date the end of the American Republic.

      Indies and ebooks are pushing back, in that respect – look at the Sad/Rabid Puppies over the last four years, although that was limited to science fiction.

      A possible reason for the elites getting so nasty of late is that they are getting pushback, and don’t like it a bit.

      I see Yahoo has click bait re: women who regret having children. While I didn’t click on it, I did project my own reaction to that idea and consider that I may have done my children no favors.  Are most of us on board with the notion that, in the industrialized West, whatever we think of as the Middle, it is living off the seed corn, while the Skimmers, skim off the top? 

      “One of the most amazing revelations of the past decade has been the level to which the GOP establishment, both political and media, hates its voter base, those segments of the population that they always allegedly championed.”
      Trump and Palin sure pulled back the curtain. Is it hate, or disdain, or simply being seen as an impediment to the Financialists and Globalists? It is an old theme among the Intelligentsia, but it certainly has ramped up and become more in your face.

      “Dr. K – in Flyoverlandia, there are a fair number of people of my generation, and my daughter’s generation who don’t buy the social justice warrior hype. Don’t know how clearly we can make our voices heard against the blaring of the mainstream media megaphone.”
      I don’t know if there are enough of these voters left to prevail, I guess we are about to find out. The media creates the impression, that no, there are not. Illusion?
      Anyone seen any stats as to how much anti-Trump money has been spent? As of May, media reports it was @$75M. It would be interesting to compare to past cycles.
      Of course, I’m guessing it pales in comparison to the media piling on, though I can’t tell how much of the MSM reporting is manufactured for the sake of revenues or is actually reflecting on the ground reality. They do appear out of control, and desperately competing for traffic, constantly ramping up the perverse, manufactured drama, and fake outrage; they are masters of deceptive editing, omission, and misrepresentation.  But, don’t the spin doctors of malice and hyperbole realize that they are undermining themselves? Thus far, when it comes to DJT, their efforts seem to have been a wash. I see them as the servants of the Globalist and Financialist paymasters. Maybe millennials and minorities are not capable of recognizing a glib shill when they see one.

      Is this decline all driven by folks competing to have an income stream, as the jobs that really grow the pie and create actual tangible wealth are falling away?  We are top heavy with useless, fake, make work jobs, that don’t add any value and piggyback on the wealth created by others, while they undermine competition. Think of an upside down pyramid. It is no wonder that the parasites are anxious.
      If the Republic fails, I can live in an Irish democracy. I am not optimistic. I think the Skimmers and their servants (media, academia, political class, activist foundations, NGOs) will prevail until this starts hitting the Paymaster in the pocket book, such as a major terror attack undermining tourism…or an attack on a school, like occurred in Beslan.

      The classic concours that we know, where old cars are lovingly displayed and restored

      The one good thing about that is that there are young men (maybe some women but I don’t know any) who make a good living from restoring those cars for rich men.

      I recently posted something about my wife’s grandson who works for his uncle restoring antique Porsches. They were working to get one ready for Pebble Beach that was going to be worth $ 1 million.

      I’m not a fan of this. It does have to virtue of preserving some famous old sailboats. Most of the really expensive ones that are wood are restored in Europe, which is awfully, suspeciously rich these days.

      One rich guy in Newport Beach bought the famous wood raceboat Windward Passage. The story is a great saga of one guy in the old Kilroy days of sailing. Robert Johnson made a fortune in plywood in Oregon. He built his own boat in a shipyard he built in the Caribbean. It was one of the most famous sailboats of the era of the big raceboats before billionaires.

      Windward Passage has been restored meticulously and sits in front of the owner’s house in Newport Beach, or did a couple, of years ago. He doesn’t sail it, let alone race it.

      One of Johnson’s competitors in the great old days was a guy named Cornelius Bruynzeel, who was also in the plywood business in South Africa. In 1965, the Transpac had the most famous race in its history when Bryunzeel’s “Stormvogel” raced Johnson’s “Ticonderoga” to the finish line in sight of each other. It is called “The Great Race.

      Anyway, in 1973, Bruynzeel was told he could not go because his heart was bad, Johnson had died in 1969. What did he do ?

      In 1973 the venerable Cornelius Bruynzeel, or Kees as he was known, set off aboard his yacht Stormy. Bruynzeel, a plywood magnate from Holland, had won most major international races but it was not because of his sailing prowess that he was being closely followed in the press. The year before he had suffered three heart attacks and at 72 was told by his doctors that it was suicide to go on the race. Bruynzeel disregarded the advice opting instead to take a cardiac nurse, some specilised cardiac equipment, and a burial-at-sea kit. Stormy not only won the race on line honors, but also on handicap. Bruynzeel went on to live another 27 years healthier than ever and died in his bunk doing the Middle Sea Race in 1980.

      Anyway, I miss those days and those people.

      Mike – book you’d like is The Boys In The Boat – about the freshman U of WA crew team that eventually went to win the gold in 1936 Berlin. The author goes into detail about George Pocock, who emigrated from England – his father was a master boat (skull) builder – and eventually lands at the U of WA where his skulls are revolutionizing the sport in the US.

      He talks of his particular boat building in an almost Zen like manner – how it has to be harmonious with the rowers

      This is a response to an Althouse poster regarding a Nutting article on how the Dem party dumped the working class and how Trump coopted this once key Dem base. Wildswan was on a roll.
      http://althouse.blogspot.com/2016/10/the-democratic-party-could-have-blocked.html

      wildswan said…
      PB and J alludes in a Delphic way to the fact that in one column Nutting says that one million jobs were lost and in another Nutting says five million were lost. In one column Nutting says trade deals had no influence on loss of manufacturing jobs (the jobs were lost due to automation making workers redundant), In another column Nutting says that trade deals were bad and Hillary Clinton said so at the time and the Democrats have said so all along and so Trump’s issue is WHAT THE DEMOCRATS SHOULD BE SAYING IF THEY CARED ABOUT THE WORKER.

      PBJ noticed this set of contradictions but is “too lazy” to look for “contradictions” and assumes they don’t exist because that would be “lame”. (“I’m too lazy to bother looking for contradictions. And, I’m assuming there aren’t any, because that would be quite lame for Nutting.”) Possibly, PBJ, your mind was a little too quick for your Hillary blindness and you saw the contradiction – after all you pointed it out and I see it is there too, thanks to you – but now you’ve gone all fetal and are rolled up in a tight ball denying you saw anything because what you saw is that………….. Trump is right.

      Trump is right. The Democrats in this election have deserted the workers and Trump is speaking for them. More – what he is saying is what Democrats used to say – what Hillary Clinton once said. And what they once said is still true – American workers have been harmed, their interests have not been considered in trade deals. But the Clintons have made millions from promoting globalization and so have most Democratic (and Republican) politicians. And so they have dropped the banner which Trump has picked up. And now things Hillary used to say, she says are insane departures from reality because he political opponent is saying them. She says the workers are a basket of deplorables for wanting jobs, not welfare. The blacks in the Great Lakes region went from 84% employment to 50% employment due to loss of manufacturing jobs due to trade deals and also automation. But what does Hillary want to do about jobs for black and white alike? She wants to increase government handouts. Yet Democratic city and state governments in the Great Lakes region, are on the verge of bankruptcy.

      Whoever is elected, the problem will come to a head in the next four years. What will the Democrats do? Take a look at PBJ and his tight fetal roll after he glimpsed the truth. Only a man and a Republican will do anything but whine about discrimination. Only a man will try to be Mr. Fix-It. The gender cruising snowflakes and their elected representatives will just seek a Safe Space for their childish selves. They will damage like children driving a car. They will not fix what they broke; they will not acknowledge they broke it; they will not acknowledge it is broken. Only the electorate is broken and oh so deplorable.

      Regarding the recent SJW and “uncertain sex” madness: A while back, I did an internet search to find out what percentage of the US population was gay/lesbian. It had to be a fairly significant percentage of the population, given all the recent attention, right? I found out that homosexuals only comprise 1 – 4% of the general population (varies by region); true transgenders are even less. What happened was that segment successfully seized media attention as a victim class, and was subsequently rewarded with extra (and unearned) social accommodation. More recently, we have the unfettered nonsense on multiple possible genders. All this imposed by the ruling class.

      I have said before that a courageous politician would go a long way by posing a simple question: when does the majority — those of us in Flyoverlandia — get to have a say on how far and how fast the culture changes? I think this underpins the support Trump is receiving.

      And if Trump posed it this way, I think it might resonate with more of the citizenry.

      I also think it’s odd that the only time the Left cares about obtaining a “majority” is during election time. For anything else, they don’t ask for a majority consensus; they simply impose their will through the Administration or through courts, the citizenry be damned.

      Government “of the people, by the people, for the people” has been replaced by government “to the people, in the name of the people, in spite of the people.”

      Subotai —

      I’ve said before that election ballots ought to be handled in a manner similar to control/access to nuclear weapon components: the two-person rule applies. The two-person rule states that at least two trained and certified individuals must be present when handling nuclear weapons and related critical components.

      I suggest the states use their National Guard for this. You’d probably need at least five Guardsmen at each voting location, in order to spell each other throughout the day watching the ballot boxes (like nuclear weapons, this is “eyes on”). When voting is over, only the Guard can transport ballots to their central counting office.

      This would prevent some snotweasel from saying “oh, wait, I found some more boxes of ballots in my trunk! I guess I forgot about them in all this excitement!” Ballots won’t count unless controlled and delivered by the Guard.

      I think that eventually, this kind of draconian measure will be necessary. Witness your link to that article. Wasn’t it Lenin who said “what matters is who counts the votes?” That linked article is the eventual result.

      In a similar vein, here’s more fun and merriment from the blue-state mafiosi:

      >According to WSJ, “[ICE] crafted a plan in 2010 to use license-plate readers—devices that record the plate numbers of all passing cars—at gun shows in Southern California, including one in Del Mar.”
      Imagine the license plates at, say, a BLM protest to be vacuumed up and stored away in such fashion. We’d never hear the end of it. But this? Just background noise. Your average suburbanite American will never even hear about it — and if they do, will discount it because they don’t like the source.

      >ICE then “compared that information to cars that crossed the border, hoping to find gun smugglers, according to the documents and interviews with law-enforcement officials with knowledge of the operation.”
      No, nonononoooo. That was the goddam PRETEXT. Those law enforcement officials have access to the same stats that I do, and they know that crimes involving firearms purchased at gun shows — like deaths from ‘assault weapons’ — are a tiny drop in a very large bucket. The object is to harass and cow enemies of The Party and The State. It was a trial run. God only knows what they’re up to now.

      Oh, and Mom? Yes, they *do* hate us.

      >Parenting magazine Baby & Family has told readers to beware of families who are “inconspicuous” and “cheerful”, as these warning signs indicate they are right wing and thus “dangerous”.

      >This, the high-circulation German magazine declares, “is precisely the great risk” as such people are just as dangerous if not more so as gangs of Nazi skinheads. The identifying features of right-wing families, it contends, are that they are “inconspicuous, blond, cute and engaged”.

      >The report advises some ways in which daycare centres can prepare for the event that right-wing parents register their children with them. It advises introducing a policy and mission statement to set out values for which the nursery stands.

      Yes, see? Even at a daycare center, the traditionalists who disagree with any part of liberal sharia law are Wrong and Evil. Disagreement must not be tolerated.

      The deconstructionist Left is everywhere the same.

      Phil – an interesting article – bizarrely interesting, like some crackup on the highway where you can only wonder what the drivers did to have their vehicles wind up in such an odd position.
      But even if the German breed of SJW and our own native breed have many things in common … there is a very wide gap, about the size of the Grand Canyon, between ordinary German citizens and ordinary, red-state Americans.

      We’ll see.

      Everyone keeps muttering darkly about The Inevitable Pushback/Blowup/Whatever, and aside from — for example — a few dozen doomed horse’s asses with messiah complexes at Malheur, nothing ever seems to break. I fear we are being boiled to death.

      We’ll just have to see.

    31. Mike K Says:

      I sent my son the link to that article about daycare. His youngest daughter is white blond with blue eyes. Obviously a terrorist candidate.

      It’s times like this that I wish I was a religious man for I’d pray to God to open up a vortex and transfer all normal people to a new Earth, a new beginning, completely free from Leftist idiots, and then he’d close the vortex in order to forever keep us safe from Leftists.

      “Trump and Palin sure pulled back the curtain. Is it hate, or disdain, or simply being seen as an impediment to the Financialists and Globalists? It is an old theme among the Intelligentsia, but it certainly has ramped up and become more in your face. ”

      How True. Pretty much after Buckley left the scene the ‘modern conservative movement’ became a feeding ground for self aggrandizement with Liberals as the foil. Yes I mean you Levin, Beck, Kristol, Will. You fear your rice bowl being overturned rather than looking at the opportunity for double or tripling your rice bowls.

      “If they prevail electorally by fraud, there is no reason that the country should not prevail by force.”

      This has been proven to be a photoshopped fake. Sorry to disappoint.

    35. Sgt. Mom Says:

      Phil, I don’t think that The Inevitable Pushback/Blowup/Whatever will be a single shattering incident, or a series of riots. I think it will be more of a silent, sullen, dogged disinclination to cooperate with the whims and dictates of Uniparty Ruling Class – and not just on the strictly political front. It might have already begun, actually. Look at the Chickfila buycott; that was resistance to the Ruling Class. Only one day – but look at how the word spread.

      Other instances; look at how the audience for NFL games has fallen off since whats-his-name Kupernick decided to made a demonstration during the playing of the national anthem. An audience share which previously adored TV football have fallen away. Of course, there were people POed at Beyonce doing the Black Power tribute a couple of months ago … and even more people annoyed at ESPN, and then there are people cutting their cable service. Pro football is basically Dixie-Chicking themselves in slow motion.

      Movies – consider how audiences have been dialing back movie attendance – especially for those movies which are lefty agit-prop. Same for television – audiences are turning off, increasingly cutting the cable service. The Sad/Rabid Puppies and the Hugo awards over the last four years; again, independent writers and their readers rejecting what the Ruling Class/Establishment Publishers are serving up.

      Educational idiocy – look at how Mizzou enrollment of freshmen students dropped like a rock after the shenanigans with Melissa Click and the BLM bullies. I’m thinking that enrollments will go on dropping, and that other universities and colleges who have grossly over-indulged their activist-student tantrums will start feeling the same pain.

      No, I don’t think there will be an earth-shattering kaboom when the Inevitable Pushback begins … it will be incremental, and on a thousand fronts. After all, they cannot force us to watch their NFL games, go to their stupid movies, watch TV shows which insult libertarians and conservatives with every breath, buy their magazines and newspapers which do the same, or send our children to cesspools of militant political correctitude disguised as colleges and universities. They can’t make us. We’re not serfs, yet.

    36. Joe Wooten Says:

      We’re not serfs, yet.

      Yet is the operative word. A helluva lot of the under 40 crowd is certainly their in their attitudes.

    37. Wombat Says:

      Hollywood – by which I mean those who produce movies and broadcast entertainment – have been contemptuous of Flyoverlandia’s mainstream,

      The oddly beneficial aspect of this is that most liberal urbanites are terrified to go into the woods for fear of being raped and eaten by super strong mutant cannibal hillbillies.

      So there’s that.

    38. Sgt. Mom Says:

      Thin comfort, Wombat, but we take it where we can find it.

    39. Mike K Says:

      “audiences have been dialing back movie attendance ”

      Yes, but the movies are now being made for export where they trash America’s reputation. Where do you think the Muslims get their concept of American life ?

    40. Michael Says:

      This has been proven to be a photoshopped fake. Sorry to disappoint.

      It was “fake but accurate”.

      There are vote fraud investigations ongoing in Indiana, Texas, and Colorado, with significant findings already leaked to the press.

      Of course those investigations will not be completed before the “election” if ever.

      I am confident that with the vote fraud machines dialed up to “eleventy”, in Philadelphia, Miami, Denver, and Cleveland, a Democrat victory is assured in November. The votes of imaginary and dead people, submitted by absentee ballot will be decisive.

      There will be no reason to consider the resulting Government as legitimate.
