The limousine liberals’ disdain for Americans in the “fly-over” states have no bounds. They despise everything about hardworking Americans in the heartland.
The latest display of this disdain comes to us courtesy of Bill Maher.
The so-called comedian — and host of “Real Time” on HBO — took a shot at red-state Republicans on his show last Friday
At the end of his show, Maher was discussing the Amazon pullout of New York City.
He addressed Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos. Maher said, “Do a good thing and help out areas of the country that are less prosperous.”
Surely, Maher must be talking about the rubble-ravaged streets of cities like Detroit or Baltimore, right?
Maher made the bizarre claim that the Republican states in the middle of the country needed economic assistance.
Maher said, “If Bugsy Siegel” — the mobster who built modern-day Las Vegas — “could build Las Vegas in the midst of a desert, then Amazon could do the same by turning Nebraska into Silicon Valley.”
His arrogant rant continued: “We have orchestras and theater districts and world-class shopping. We have chef Wolfgang Puck; they have Chef Boyardee.”
Interesting, Bill. Where does Wolfgang Puck get his meat, cheese and vegetables to make the food for the snobby coastal elites?
Answer: states in the heartland.
Nebraska is in the middle of the country. However, Bill probably knew this already, because he is so highly educated.
Don’t believe me?
Here is what Bill Maher told his audience: “We have a problem in America called spatial geographic inequality, which means the most affluent and educated people are clustered in just a few cities.”
By educated, he means: people like him.
The left loves to paint the middle of the country as backward and dumb.
They are so conceited that they believe anyone who disagrees with their views must be an out-of-touch redneck, that they can’t think for themselves and are taught silly things in their churches.
This isn’t anything new. The left has been perpetuating these stereotypes for years.
In 2008, Barack Obama made a derisive remark about red-state conservatives. Obama was then a candidate for president. Obama said, “They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion … they show antipathy to people who aren’t like them.”
That’s like the pot calling the kettle black. (Hope that wasn’t too folksy an expression.)
Obama is dissing people who revere our First- and Second-Amendment rights.
But Trump was the one that divided America with his rhetoric?
Give me a break.
“Crooked” Hillary Clinton has a long history of targeting Republicans in the heartland.
Who could forget her calling Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables” during the 2016 campaign.
However, “Crooked” Hillary didn’t stop there. She went further: “They are racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic — you name it. I will keep fighting bigotry and racist rhetoric.”
And the liberals wonder why they lost the election…
It’s not smart politics to diss half the country.
Hillary wrote a book about her election loss, called “What Happened.”
Answer: Look in the mirror, Hillary.
Clinton didn’t stop there. She blamed the “dumb” voters in red states for her loss. She said, “I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product … I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic and moving forward.”
Translation: If you don’t support Hillary, then you are an idiot!
Apparently, her mirror is broken…
Now back to Bill Maher.
Maher couldn’t stop blabbering on about his hatred for red-state Republicans.
He claimed that there are “two Americas.”
But that’s not divisive language?
He continued: “The blue parts of America are having a prosperity party while that big sea of red feels like their invitation got lost in the mail. Our roofs have solar panels; theirs have last year’s Christmas lights.”
Maher forgot about Florida, Texas, North Carolina and North Dakota. Last I checked, those states are not on blue-coastal states.
However, I am a conservative from middle America … I am dumb.
And now for the finale: “The passed-over states are not just angry — they’re pissed off. They don’t hate us; they want to be us.”
Middle America wants nothing to do with the elitists in the cities. Nothing could be further from the truth.
In fact, the “flyover states” should thank Bill Maher and his limousine-liberal pals.
If they continue to antagonize the Republicans in the middle of the country, they are more likely to turn out and vote Trump in 2020.
On second thought: Keep talking down to the “fly-over” states, liberals.
We could get four more years of President Trump!
