Editor’s Note: From the Back Forty is Liberty Nation’s longest operating and hottest weekly column. Capturing the reality every week from heartlanders in flyover states, LN offers voice to the hard-working Americans in any other case ignored by the coastal elites.
There is not any lack of liberal fodder to make enjoyable of, or to make use of to level out layers of hypocrisy and slam the activist media for failure to cowl it – or an unhealthy mixture of the 2. Heartlanders, who pray for his or her enemies to get their collective dysfunctional feces so as, are eloquently – and, at occasions, ineloquently – lashing out to get their pound of flesh on the present state of the union. In a way, you possibly can solely irritate the good people in flyover states so lengthy earlier than struggling the implications.
Hypocrisy of the Activist Media
After quite a few innocents have been subjected to the wrath of unchecked “protesters” – also referred to as rioters, looters, and arsonists – after the police capturing of Jacob Blake, one younger man stood trial for assault and homicide this week. On Aug. 25, 2020, in Kenosha, WI, then 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse fatally shot two and injured one protester in what he mentioned was self-defense. After seven days of testimony, younger Rittenhouse took the stand and cried, prompting liberals to lose their minds.
From the sage political strategist and self-proclaimed knower of all issues, LeBron James, to commentators of the novel daytime discuss present that doesn’t seem to imagine in info, The View, his tears have been regarded upon as “fake” information.
Conservatives had a factor or two to say.
Steven Crowder tweeted: “if you accuse Kyle Rittenhouse of ‘faking tears’ for being forced to relive the trauma of having to shoot armed child rapists and arsonists, but claim PTSD from being called the wrong pronouns … you are an a—hole.”
Andrew McDowell, a local of Georgia, identified the plain: “The left: ‘oh boys need to show emotion.’ Also, the left: ‘Look at that little liar cry.’”
Also, down south, musician and patriot Adam Lee Marcus, who has watched the trial and thinks earlier than opening his lure, commented: “He represents everyday American citizens in that he is absolutely fed up with all the bull—-.” That introduced a tsunami of those that hadn’t watched a single minute of the trial to blabber the previous standby phrase “racist” almost uncontrollably. Marcus edited his remark to enlighten the ignorant: “Edit: The ‘he’ refers to the judge. The judge represents all fed-up Americans. I realize many didn’t fully understand my statement and made an assumption. Seems to be a hallmark of a modern Democrat.”
Flyover people sniggered (look it up) at that rebuke.
The Not So Modern Democrat That Embarrasses the USA Daily
Joe Biden: that previous scrappy man from Scranton who as soon as referred to his former boss, Barack Obama, as “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” Yep, that’s the identical Joe Biden who was besties again within the day and credited knowledgeable mentorship with Ku Klux Klan chief Sen. Robert Byrd. Joe Biden, the identical man who fought towards desegregation, claiming that integrating would trigger his kids to “grow up in a racial jungle.”
And that is the man that apparently 81 million or so thought may unite the nation after the worst summer time of racially charged violence in 50 years.
Well, he did it once more. This week at a Veteran’s Day memorial occasion at Arlington National Cemetery, the person strayed off script and allowed Americans to see the underbelly of a racist previous in 2021. The video has gone viral, and you should definitely search for it, because the activist media are busy burying all the account:
“I just want to tell you, I know you’re a little younger than I am, but I’ve adopted the attitude of the great Negro at the time, pitcher in the Negro leagues, went on to become a great pitcher in the pros, major league baseball, after Jackie Robinson. His name was Satchel Paige.”
Back when Obama was within the Oval Office signing stuff, Biden’s previous boss handed a coverage that no particular person within the federal authorities may say “negro.”
And for the final phrase, we now circle again to Leona Dyer in Wisconsin, who merely says: “This is a good teaching video captioned: THIS IS HOW A BIGOT THINKS.”
