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.
The folks in flyover country have simply had enough. Enough of this Coronavirus, enough of the spouse and kids, and enough of the side-eye glances of people wearing forehead to belly-button masks while donning bread bags for gloves. And frankly, Karen, the Bobbie Brooks bra repurposed into homemade protective gear looks ridiculous.
Heartlanders grumble about the rules but tend to comply, which is why day drinking is escalating and social media posts are becoming quite delicious to read. The fools on the virtual chopping block this week include, in no specific order, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the blithering Joe Biden, and – feeling the Bern of another primary rigging by the left – Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
That Damn 97% Recoverable Virus
The top doc and new media darling, Anthony Fauci, made a recent statement that had the folks with common sense reaching for their BS detectors. The man refuses to believe the pandemic will subside, and the lack of positivity irritated even the friendliest of heartlanders. The doctor indicated the virus will not be going away:
“When we get back to normal, we will go back to the point where we can function as a society. But … [i]f you want to get back to pre-coronavirus, that might not ever happen in the sense that the threat is there. But I believe that with the therapies that will be coming online, and the fact that I feel confident that over a period of time we will get a good vaccine, that we will never have to get back to where we are right now.”
It was Southern Arizonan Sharlene Rock that made the socialist link. “Still keeping that control and fear out there,” she wrote. George Reid of Bloomfield, NM, pointed out the classic inconsistencies the good doctor tends to lump into one comment, channeling the bumbling Joe Biden while comparing him to yet another well-known charlatan:
“I’m mostly 97% sure I agree with parts of this statement fully. And I’ve been thinking, did we ever decide on the definition of ‘is’? (That last was a tribute to the best side-stepping word slipping politician ever, Slick Willie!)”
Sarcasm keeps heartlanders sane in these perilous times. Toby Purvis in rural Colorado called him “Dr. Evil,” and warned, “I don’t trust him. Shenanigans with the Cabal in the background!” Hal DeKeyser wrapped up the discussion with this pithy soon-to-be-platitude: “It’s probably going to be some time before I stop washing my hands like I’m about to perform heart surgery.”
Buh Bye Bernie
Who didn’t see this train wreck careening around the bend? The man who would be the socialist-in-chief had he not been dissed by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is out of the presidential race. While Biden makes zero sense and seemingly forgets where he is and what office he’s running for, at least Sanders can speak coherently – even if the message is abhorrent to those in the flyover states. As word blasted across social media that Bernie was standing down, feelings ranged from “he’s a socialist and good riddance” to “the DNC rigs another one.”
Musing from the Buckeye State, Pattie Vanatta Greene blamed the senator for believing the Democrats would accept him as their leader, “Yeah, the left has screwed Bernie yet again, so run to support the people who from day one set out to sabotage his campaign not once but twice.”
In Spring, TX, where folks are known to be brutally honest, Robert Hinman offered his opinion: “Elizabeth Warren made sure Bernie was out so that the thugs in the Democratic Party could do what they did to him the last time. Last time it was Hillary now it’s Joe Biden and neither one of them are worth a pig in a poke.”
RJ Brown pondered, “Well I wonder how much he got paid this time to get out?” And that much-discussed question was answered by Mike McGee in Utah, who said, “I imagine it cost at least double what it cost last time.”
The Bernie Bros are devastated, the Biden folks are trying to find a miracle cure for their old white guy, who’s losing the last few marbles he once had, and no one believes Dr. Fauci anymore – at least in flyover country.
