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.
As flyover folks kept a rolling real time update on the Texas lawsuit brought against four states with the most curious of election results, a boutique ice cream maker launched a new flavor that immediately curdles the stomach, and one cable news channel felt the wrath of angry conservatives. The week was simply exhausting, seriously frustrating, and somewhat exciting.
The Heart of the Matter
The Lone Star State made history of late for throwing its hefty weight into the battle against fraud and election tampering with a Supreme Court suit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Seemingly emboldened by the electoral vote juggernaut, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Utah said, “hold my beer.” Okay, probably not Utah so much on the beer part, but they all lent their names to the Texas advance. Social media lit up with calls that patriots in other red states message their governor and state officials to back the attack.
Exhilarating times, indeed. In Branson, MO, Marvena Hall piped up: “This is not going away until the truth comes out. Trump did win and the conservatives are going to prove it, With God’s help, of course.” And in Santaquin, UT, James Moser issued instructions: “Tell everyone to contact their reps to join TX — Governors, LT Gov, senators, congressmen and women, county and city officials, all of them. Now is the time to rise and take action.”
Fox News DUI
Flyover folks, once again, sent a message to elitists: “we are tired of your crap and you gotta pay up.” It wasn’t a rallying cry toward the Swamp, rather a pinch of the pocketbook for a freewheeling big box media corporation, so drunk on its own perceived popularity it missed the caution sign near the railroad tracks signaling the Trump train. Driving under the influence of its own public relations team, Fox News was T-boned by millions of President Trump supporters and sent to dialing for crisis communications dollars after the latest ratings came into focus.
Liberty Nation’s Tim Donner summed the situation up in such a way even the number crunchers in the belly of the Fox beast could understand:
“We could see this one coming … After years of dominance in cable ratings by Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, CNN in the past few weeks has pulled ahead consistently for the first time since 9/11.”
The nearly two-decade reign of ratings was efficiently and savagely obliterated by the now Not Silent Majority. Much like the recent exodus from Twitter and Facebook, conservatives drove a stake through the heart of the once perceived “fair and balanced” media company and left for One America News Network and Newsmax.
Arizonan Dave Metcalf was not surprised, “After the last couple of years, the election was the last straw for me. I will never watch Fox News again, nor will I visit their website.” Ella Purvis in NM was giddy to be saving $90 a month after canceling cable TV altogether, “We only subscribed to watch Fox News. Now we stream.”
Ugg Ben & Jerry’s Staying Cool Is Yucky
Those tubby ice cream boys in Vermont are debuting a vegan flavored ice cream, to be in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s nearest expensive grocery market for a stock up after the holidays. Just what does a vegan taste like? No one knows for sure or isn’t admitting if they do. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, liberals are too weird. But the real curdling kicker is it is called “Change The Whirled” and it honors our favorite third-string football player, Colin Kaepernick. Ah the taste of social justice, yuk!
The PR folks went overboard in unveiling this delish dessert: “We are so inspired by Colin Kaepernick’s bold activism for racial justice that we did what we do best: We whipped up a euphoric flavor to honor his work.”
Oh, by the way, the fluffy-haired QB hasn’t worked on the field since 2016, just sayin’. And let’s say the news was not well received by flyover folks.
“Do you have to kneel to eat it while screeching about America at the same time?” asked Michael Groark in Rockwall, Texas. But in Kansas, Brett Smith took a truly conservative approach to the announcement: “Need to buy stock in Breyers now.”
And that seemed to be the most logical ending to an illogical week.
