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.
Gender-neutral Bobby/Barbie dolls, a mouthy Swedish teen lecturing the United Nations on climate change, and the shot heard round the world that essentially boomeranged are on the tips of tongues in the heartland. No one is marked safe on Facebook from the fallout of ridiculous and desperate Democratic tactics.
And no one thought our Swamp Sitters could top last week’s lunacy, yet the radicalized left rose comically to the challenge.
Impeach Him, Go Ahead
As tensions rose over a not-so-secret phone conversation between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, that crafty leader of the free world dangled a worm in front of the Democrats about keeping all the juicy tidbits to himself. Caving under pressure from the radicals in her party, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held a press conference to announce Trump’s pending impeachment investigation. America has heard this threat before, but this time they inserted “Ukraine” in place of “Russia.”
Trump, of course, catfished Pelosi. He made it seem as if he would keep it all to himself, then released the unredacted transcript. It shows no wrongdoing between the two world leaders, but it does poke a pinhole in former Vice President Joe Biden’s hot air balloon.
And the Silent Majority spoke. From Chester, PA, Matt Phayre vowed: “After today I am steadfast that I will never vote for any Democratic candidate for any reason or position for the rest of my life. No matter how qualified they may be.”
From Fulton, MO, Pattie Oestreich wrote: “’It’s so good to be a Democrat today’ ….said no one ever!!! That poor, pitiful party shoots itself in the foot every single day.” Obviously, the requisite follow-up, “bless your hearts,” was silently implied.
Las Cruces, NM, MAGA Mary Solderholm went a tad overboard in celebration by channeling … er paraphrasing Rod Stewart and commenting on his ability to bait the hook that no liberal can resist: “The Maestro strikes again! LOL! People Get ready there’s a train coming! It’s picking up passengers from coast to coast! I can hear the Diesels humming!!! Everybody get on board the Trump train!! Hallelujah!”
Jerry Allen, in the heartland of the Hoosier State, was a bit more reserved than MAGA Mary, and simply warned, “The Dems keep going down this rabbit hole and they will not hold the office of president for a lot of years to come.”
Even the strong silent types weighed in. Hailing from Dickinson, ND, Mark Frieze tied the conversation into a tidy little package: “Tough day to be a Democrat.”
The Tiny Truant
Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old climate activist from Sweden, sailed a craft across the Atlantic to the US to chastise adults at a climate change gathering at the United Nations. The toll of the 15-day trip without much entertainment, a kitchen, or even a bathroom on the little truant’s attitude seemed apparent when she delivered her angry words:
“I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back at school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you! You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words.”
The media praised her, politicians either ignored her or embraced her soundbites, but the folks in the Flyover states wanted to discipline the petulant child. Though used and abused by adults fear-mongering the end of the world in 12 years, the child didn’t fool the middle Americans. Most felt empathy for her crusade, but others came off a tad more practical.
Christopher Cook observed, “Greta Thunberg is the only person on earth who’s actually more angry than Bernie Sanders.”
Donnie Dearen from Farmington, NM, saw an opportunity for a love connection, “Wonder if she is related to David Hogg – or wants to be?”
But that blind date will have to wait: Greta is off to the next big day of skipping school to annoy adults the planet over.
You Just Crossed Over Into …
Mega toy company Mattel, maker of the iconic Barbie, has steered drastically away from the origin of the doll. Originally designed to emulate grace, femininity, and flair, Barbie has undergone a radical makeover – she is now gender fluid. You know, so little kids can decide at three what gender they want to be and all that social justice warrior nonsense. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for folks making up their adult minds to pursue whatever they feel comfortable doing – as long as it doesn’t harm others. But this latest pandering ploy has some folks like Carol Joyner from Pennsylvania wondering, “Have we entered the Twilight Zone and nobody told me?”
Some compared the California based company to Sodom and Gomorrah while others snapped closed pocket-books – but not their comments. Dan Singletary weighed in, “And our culture continues to walk toward the Godless abyss while they consider themselves so greatly enlightened.”
Carol Testa from Avon, OH, worried that “confusing children isn’t helping anyone. This kind of stuff needs to stop,” while others, like grandmother Karen Schmoldt in Michigan, were relieved: “Glad my grandchildren are old enough that I don’t have to buy any more Mattel toys.”
Lori Vivlamore explained the process of switching genders in the olden days. “ Back in my day if I wanted to be a male I picked up Ken and talked in a deep voice!” And Traci Dyer from Texas reminded us all of the permanency of our rash decisions as children, “Man … When I wanted a short hair Barbie … It stayed a short hair Barbie.”
And that’s the long and short of what the heartlanders had to say in the political discussion this week … so far. But this writer will leave you with a simple summary: A news conference, no matter the subject matter, is not the same as impeachment. Rehashing rhetoric is not a legal process. Sixteen-year-old insufferable children will be forgotten, and Barbie is now gender fluid – whether we like it or not.
