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.
From the Wuhan China bug seemingly petering out, murder hornets holstering their firearms in retreat, and no valid sightings of Sasquatch, rural flyover folks saw the light at the end of the tunnel and collectively breathed a sigh of relief. That is, until Minneapolis caught the attention of the nation as four members of the police department brought on the death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, who was already in restraints.
The U.S. of A. responded in solidarity: Demanding justice.
Umm … What Just Happened to our Kumbaya Moment?
And then the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul began to burn – emotionally and physically – as angry protesters turned violent and pillaged local businesses, beating neighbors and friends. The coordination of riots across the nation spread into Scottsdale, AZ, New York City, Detroit, and Houston, with local law enforcement attempting to keep the peace.
Obviously uninspired by big city looting, the Antifa cowards came out from behind their mama’s skirts to threaten small towns and rural USA. It took the edge off the anger for flyover folk, who nearly begged rioters to come for a visit.
A sheriff from Oklahoma, who will remain nameless, posted his list for folks considering an attack on the rural areas:
- You are gonna get snake bit.
- Free roam roosters will strip you clean – and they are running the streets.
- People out here have been shooting at crack heads running off with weed eaters and bird feeders for decades.
- You aren’t as elusive as a crack head.
Steven Dyszkewicz from West Lebanon, IN added another rule: “How about nobody sneaks up around here. Our alarm systems have four legs, big teeth, and bad attitudes when something strange is on their turf!”
Stay at home mom, artist and avid Second Amendment gal in Illinois, Megan Ward, sent up the message for those thinking of wandering on down from Chicago: “There’s talk of protests coming to Canton, IL (population of around 15,000). I bet if they do that, they’ll be met with armed rednecks coming out of the woodwork.”
Other folks requested that rioters or looters approaching their land “get right with Lord.” But one woman in New Mexico, Angie Breadmont LaGrande, simply asked nicely, “Due to COVID all rioters please work from home and destroy your own sh-t.”
Is it Over Yet?
In the immortal words of Hank Williams, Jr., “A country boy can survive.” Antifa does not scare the folks living in the boondocks, on farms, in the woods, or on ranches. New Mexican Donnie Dearen remarked after reading the threat to spread civil unrest to the calm and peaceful rural communities, “Remember, a good ole boy will climb up and sit in 30 foot tower, in freezing or hot and humid temperatures, for 12 hours just to get a shot off in the right direction.”
You can darn well bet no one takes Antifa’s threats seriously in the sticks. No one. And as our good conservative friend in the Land of Enchantment said, “This too shall pass. Like [a] kidney stone but nevertheless, pass.”
