Editor’s Note: While the media and other leftist elites ignore the millions of folks living in “flyover” states, they do so at their own peril; it was this silent majority that put President Trump in the White House. Each week, Liberty Nation gives voice to the hard-working heartlanders who are silent no more.
When not busy prepping for the mass exodus from the censoring social media platforms, folks in the heartland could be found online animated, amused, and aplenty. From watching the Fox News page numbers plummet to laughing at Mr. Biden’s new “office of the president-elect” banner and lambasting those who believe they are constitutional scholars because MSNBC told them so, it was a fun week as the process of counting votes became overwhelming and the necessity for some pokes and jabs took over.
Still stuck in election limbo, President Trump’s supporters have tried to educate those who must have ditched their high school civics classes for a party in the sticks.
MSNBC Told Me
Joy Reid is not a stupid woman. She has a degree in documentary film from Harvard. She is, however, woefully undereducated on the American government. With an almost in-your-face tweet, Ms. Reid opined:
“Here’s the thing: the reason there’s a thing called FiveThirtyEight is because 538 was the margin in FL when the Republican SCOTUS reversed the 2000 election during a recount, making Dubya the president. That’s the kind of margin where races can flip. That’s not what’s up now.”
How can she be so wrong? The number 538 has been around since 1961 and the passage of the 23rd Amendment. That famous number is equal to the 100 members of the United States Senate, plus the 435 members of the United States House, and three for the District of Columbia.
What the infamous number is not: the margin of error in the Florida presidential election in 2000. That number was, in fact, 537.
Who doesn’t love revisionist history?
Some folks thought Reid brilliant. In New Mexico, one man also believed he was brilliant, stating that he too knew the Constitution much like Reid. He bravely wandered into reality armed with a neon green squirt gun: “I know the constitution I’m a teacher.”
Well, that brought out the facts – the man did not have an education degree, and of course, folks pointed out that cashiering was not a constitutional knowledge breeding ground.
He offered, “I may not have a teaching degree yet, but I’m a teaching assistant for 5th grade, and we have been teaching that.” The most pleasant reply to the poor man was from a mutual friend, Lori Weber Kraus, who replied: “Apparently, you missed that part.”
But, But, MSNBC Told Me!
And then there is Mr. Joe Biden, believing whatever the mass media tells him, donning his official appearing president-elect status on banners and backdrops and declaring war on COVID-19. Biden has begun selecting staff members, dropping hints of cabinet candidates, and is trying to look less like a bumbler and more like a senator. Or president. C’mon man.
But today, believe it or not, Joe and Jill have a looming concern: Might their inauguration look more like a MAGA rally? I kid you not. But that threat was quickly dispelled by patriot Jayne Lynn Davidson: “His rallies are extreme: they either involve the breaking of windows and looting, which in Leftist NewSpeak is called ‘Reparations’ or they have as much excitement as can be seen in a colonoscopy Dr’s waiting room.”
