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 dodging the Ides of March and downing green beer on tap in taverns across the heartland to surviving Mr. Biden’s first interview – during which, America learned nothing – flyover folks continue to grumble. What caught their attention this week was the fate of the Republican Party and how to remove the intrusive wart that is Joy Behar (according to some) from the American Broadcasting Company for false reporting. Green beer and Behar were not a perfect recipe for clarity. But it was a hoot nonetheless, with several good ideas awaiting a good fleshing out.
Liberty Nation’s Jeff Charles had finally had enough of the program The View. So much so, he stepped away from his brilliant daily analysis of political events to set the record straight for those few fans of the series. Just a warning, Mr. Charles is not one of those voyeurs who live for The View. In his scathing report on the facts this week, he examines how ridiculously wrong this Behar woman is allowed to be without censure. Heck, even RINO Meghan McCain had the good sense to fight back. What was the subject so hotly debated on-air, by hot air? Well, that would be the existence or non-existence of Antifa.
On the March 16 episode of The View, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) was the subject of the under-the-hair-dryers panel of experts. He claimed “Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters” would have scared him had they been the ones who stormed U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Behar made a face and declared: “It’s like, ‘I’m a racist. Have a nice day.’ You know what I mean? It’s funny. When I was watching this, it was so aggravating to listen to this idiot. I mean, he and I are very different.”
Yeah, maybe not so much. Of course, Behar couldn’t seem to stop herself: “He’s scared of this fictitious idea of Antifa, a thing that doesn’t even exist. He needs to go. He needs to go, and soon.”
In a moment of sanity, McCain retorted: “The idea that Antifa doesn’t exist is just factually inaccurate and wrong and a lie.” Flyover folks left McCain alone but snapped to attention to eviscerate Behar. Donald Newton from Oklahoma City blazed away: “She gave me gas; that’s why I had to quit watching her.” And not to be outdone, Cindy Scott in Hobbs, NM, just wanted to swat them away like annoying insects: “Will they all ever just go away, like right off a cliff.”
Uh Oh. Look Out GOP Elite
There’s a whisper campaign going around the hallowed halls of the Republican National Committee (RNC) that they are soon to be all but a distant and quaint memory. Rumors of a trump-oriented America First group, to a mass exodus of GOP loyalists in a critical fundraising time, and the announcement of currently seated elected officials not running for re-election has folks chitter-chatting more than the routine off-handed water cooler analysis.
One such group boldly speaking aloud of the splintered party is the CGCN Group — an “integrated advocacy and strategic communications firm that specializes in helping corporations, non-profits, and trade associations navigate complex legislative and regulatory issues.” A K-Street level lobbying firm in Washington, D.C., for those not familiar with the vernacular, CGCN is made up of policy wonk-ish folks who have worked in GOP’s loftiest circles and know the party rather intimately.
CGCN recently published an article that has the GOP in another spastic chain reaction of the fear willies. Whole-body fear willies. The report is titled The Party They’ll Get, Not the Party They Want, and it is a frightening look at the dismantling of said party – not by Trump loyalists but by the elitist members of the GOP. The article points to the divide between corporate America and the Republican Party. This relationship used to be in lockstep on most issues: But that has been all but erased. CGCN bluntly states:
“Whether on issues related to technology and social media, immigration, taxes, trade, and much else, congressional Republicans—many of whom are under the age of 50—are gravitating more and more to the views and demands of their conservative base. As noted, “woke-ism” is a central target of GOP voters, and their younger leaders are attacking what they perceive is its unholy grip on the nation’s major social, cultural, and economic institutions.”
For flyover folks, the America First agenda is all they need to know when supporting a federal office candidate.
In the balmy climes of Mobile, AL, Arlie Ren Silver believes “[t]he Republican party needs to accept its new place of America first that started with Trump. If they don’t, the party will be split, and the Democrats will win and destroy everything. Establishment Republicans need to get on board or get voted out.”
Arlie speaks for millions of heartlanders who have receded into the shadows following the 2020 election debacle. Perhaps the GOP should listen.
