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.
A week-long lead-up discussion on the debate between Vice President Mike Pence and the lady in waiting to rule the free world, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), had folks speculating if the two could follow the rules and keep their comments civil. Facebook was smothered with optimistic outlooks from the electorate and posts that began with “Finally, we will learn platforms and issues,” and “These candidates will bring decorum and dignity back to the stage!”
Those hopeful sentiments were soon repealed and replaced.
On the day after the vice presidential debate, social media exploded with the whackiest of all time comments aimed at finally, once and for all, convincing the Silent Majority to vote for the Biden/Harris “well-balanced” ticket. Perhaps balanced is interpreted as a segregation-voting old white man who cannot finish a complete sentence paired with a lovely woman of color who publicly labeled the man a racist. That’s balanced.
But you know the left is feeling desperation when they begin to invoke all manner of religious and Christian-oriented dogma to make their case – because Heartlanders are still clutching their bibles and their guns.
Grandma Always Said …
Dear Lord, when the star of the debate that will help determine a nation’s fate is a common house fly that buzzed about the vice president’s head, there is a severe problem with crazy Trump haters.
Lincoln Project founder Steve Schmidt appeared on that paragon of Christian values channel, MSNBC, and told viewers the fly that landed on Vice President Mike Pence’s head during the debate was “the mark of the devil.” When do Devil’s marks take flight? Anyhow, here is the religious scholar’s in-depth take on said annoying house fly: “I don’t think it’s ever a good sign when a fly lands on your head for two minutes. You know that’s a sign all through the history of sin, and historically, biblically.”
What in the Hell did we hear? John Zimmerman of Fraser, MI wondered as well: “These people have lost their minds. How can you believe anything they say! I guess I missed that in the bible.”
Of course, others questioned Schmidt’s sanity: As Rick McKnight of Jackson, MS advised, “If one has any sense of their place in life, in the world, in eternity probably not a great idea to just throw out theology when you don’t know what you’re talking about.” Bless his pea-picking heart.
For anyone who grew up in flyover states and perhaps used cross words with friends or family, most grandma’s in earshot would admonish, “You get more flies with honey than vinegar.” And that’s where the discussion on the crazy MSNBC comment came to a close as Daniel Newton in Madisonville, KY observed Mr. Vice President remembering his flyover state upbringing: “The fly was a Democrat, trying to get Pence flustered. However, he didn’t budge. Rumor is, Pence and Fly are now really good friends.”
