Editor’s Note: From the Back Forty is Liberty Nation’s longest running and most popular weekly column. Capturing the truth each week from heartlanders in flyover states, LN gives voice to the hard-working Americans otherwise ignored by the coastal elites.
Death at the border as Title 42 expired? Heartlanders saw that coming a mile away but also chuckled at one news outlet’s marketing campaign for Bud Light. It was another week for flyover folks where the inmates are in charge of the asylum and running amok in the Big Apple.
Death After Title 42
A 17-year-old boy from Olanchito, Honduras, appeared healthy just days before his untimely death while in Department of Health and Human Services custody. Ángel Eduardo Maradiaga Espinoza left his home and family on the arduous journey to the border to reunite with his father in the US. Unfortunately, due to his age, Angel Eduardo was processed and sent to a shelter in Safety Harbor, FL, to await reunification with family members.
A friend found he had mysteriously died in his sleep, and now everyone is seeking the answers to tough questions. As heartlanders sympathize with a child’s passing, they also recognize the troubles on the border.
In Davenport, IA, Michael Knuth pointed to the discrepancy in reporting the teen’s demise: “Where’s the outrage? I suppose they’re not being shown in cages anymore, so it’s ok.” Jay Kreitlow in Gilbert, AZ, predicted more death: “So now Biden has his first bit of blood on his hands with his treasonous border policy. There’s a lot more to come, I’m sure.” Randy Stine in Indiana simply asked, “Are we sure Trump didn’t do this?”
The Resurrection of Bud Light
Full disclosure: Many folks in the flyover states are Bud Light drinkers. Well, until the Dylan Mulvaney incident and the statements made by a delusional marketing executive that the brand was too “Fratty” for the progressive world she lived in at the time. Pub talk at the Foxhole, a veteran-owned bar frequented by farmers, factory workers, old rock and roll musicians, preachers, and a host of random conservatives were in a heated discussion of the rebranding of Bud. Someone had seen an opinion article in the Daily Caller and was discussing optional spokespeople that best fit the beer and the beer drinker.
The online platform had decided on professional golfer Jon Daly. Kay Smythe wrote the piece after meeting with former Michigan gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon and Newsmax’s Carl Higbie. Dixon just thought that hot chicks in bikinis would do the trick. But Smythe went back to the office and brainstormed with co-workers. It started with something akin to “Bud Light utterly disrespected its core demographic of tough, cool, brilliant, hilarious, patriotic American men.”
Smythe wrote in her opinion piece: “Bud Light could bring back their target demo, who now associate the brand with being pansy-ass, American-hating losers. The image of John Daly drinking a Bud Light in full cigarette smoking, beer belly sporting regalia would be the only thing that could sanitize the brand.”
Foxhole Patrons embraced such an idea and offered more. Stine was still at the pub and had a better idea to make everyone happy: “Let’s have the old Bud Light pitch dog, Spuds Mackenzie, say he identifies as a cat.” Another just wanted the frogs and Clydesdale back. But Jon Daly could be the one to turn it all around. Ah, the audacity of hope in the heartland.
Death on a Train
The subway system in New York City has been a hot mess of criminal activity and homeless hangouts for decades. It seems no one knows what to do or how to do it. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has had a tendency to allow violent crime to slide by in his rabid pursuit of the former President, Donald Trump, but that all changed May 1.
Daniel Penny, a former Marine, and his co-riders on the subway were threatened and harassed by a mentally ill, homeless Michael Jackson impersonator on the F train. The assailant, Jordan Neely, was subdued via chokehold by Penny and other passengers. Neely died – and Penny has been arrested and charged with murder.
A white man killed a black criminal, so of course there were protests – and Neely was indeed a criminal. He had been arrested 40 times in the past, had violently assaulted a 67-year-old woman, and had another warrant out for his arrest at the time of the F train incident. In Indianapolis, Jay Beyers remarked: “After 40 arrests, I think you can see he was a menace to society.” A bit further north in Wisconsin, George Hausladen pointed to the citizens. “New Yorkers voted for all this. They created their own cesspool. Enjoy the bath.” In Nashville, GA, Charles Walker seemed sad: “I don’t think NYC is part of America anymore.”
