An instructor at UC Berkeley argued that “rural Americans” are “bad people” who have made “bad life decisions” in a tweet that he has since deleted. UC Berkeley instructor Jackson Kernion said that “rural Americans” are “bad people” in a tweet last week. Kernion, a graduate student studying philosophy, has taught ten courses at UC Berkeley over the past few years.


These are the kind of stories that need to be pointed out. Only two publications ran this. No main stream left wing media. Of course.

Small sample of how academic elites work to destroy the country from within. Of course they have help from media, politicos, et al.

Idiot. His skull is so full of useless crap from spending a lifetime doing nothing productive but waiting on tables while getting his worthless affirmative action-aided piece of sheepskin with printing on it saying he’s a smart dude!

It is uncomfrtable living in a rural environment. Water, electricity, gas may all be difficult to obtain. Produce deserts are the norm, not the exception. Driving miles and miles for gas, limited food. Yeah, living in rural America is not the same as living in a large city with all the amenities withn walking distance. But wait, without rural America, there would be Produce deserts in urban America as well as meat, poultry and pork shortages. How important is the rural wayof living? During WW II, urban men were drafted and sent off to war. Rurual men were not drafted and had to have a good reason to be accepted as a volunteer. Why? Someone had to grow food for Americans, the world and our military.

FTA: “I unironically embrace the bashing of rural Americans. they, as a group, are bad people who have made bad life decisions. Some, I assume, are good people,” Kernion wrote in the deleted tweet. “But this nostalgia for some imagined pastoral way of life is stupid and we should shame people who aren’t pro-city.” This moron must think that the food he eats originates in the grocery store! He seems totally clueless that those same rural Americans, that he holds in utter contempt, produce the food that keeps him alive. He should put his money where his mouth is and refuse to consume anything those "bad people" produce. #stupid twit

Here’s Jackson, from Harvard, class of 2012. Another pajama boy delaying adulthood by overeducating himself while learning nothing. I all it “mental masturbation”. (A.B., cum laude, Philosophy, Harvard, 2012) Jackson is primarily interested in philosophy of mind, epistemology, and philosophy of science. He’s currently writing a dissertation on the concept of conscious experience, arguing for a certain kind of a priori functional constraint on experience. When not philosophizing, he likes to go hiking and keep up a coding hobby.

Quick thought experiment: One day all the "rural Americans" die - would anyone notice? Easy answer: Only the people who eat food. Alternative thought experiment: One day all Berkeley philosophy majors die, would anyone even notice? Easy answer: Nope, only their families would notice, no adverse effects on the country. A good case could be made for the obvious beneficial effects.

One of the parts of the Communist Manifesto deals with a government controlling the location of population. Communism was meant and designed for urban factory workers, not farmers.

The 10-year surge in illegal and legal immigration has exploded the populations of mostly Democratic states enough that the 2020 census is likely to result in the redistribution of 24 House seats in states President Trump won, according to a new population analysis released Thursday morning. The prediction from the Center for Immigration Studies said that 26 seats overall will shift due to immigration increases since the last census was taken. And it said that a minimum of 19 of those seats will be added to Democratic states.

Even a third of Democrats, 35 percent, said they believed there would be four more years of President Trump.

While laying out a case for President Donald Trump’s impeachment during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC” on Sunday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) raised questions about Trump’s mental health as one of her arguments. Waters called Trump “a liar” and told host Kasie Hunt there were issues dealing with the president’s mental health, noting psychiatrists have previously diagnosed him from afar. “[W]e know several things about this president,” she said. “We know he’s a liar. We know that it has been documented by The Washington Post that he’s lied thousands of times. I think it’s over 15,000 times that they’ve actually documented. We know that there is a matter of trust.

When the news broke about the death of Qassem Soleimani in an American airstrike, it was inevitable that the Democrats and the media would denounce the action and once again declare President Trump unfit for office. More surprising was the opprobrium heaped on the raid and its underlying rationale by Tucker Carlson. The Fox News host is usually fairly sensible, if given to the hyperbole and simulated indignation required by the talking head genre. Moreover, he tends to be supportive of the President and his policies. Carlson’s response to the Soleimani killing, however, was uninformed, uncharacteristically hostile to Trump, and generally unhinged.

I know, I know. The homeless smell bad sometimes. They look scary, with layers of clothing and dirty hands. They litter our streets with cardboard boxes, fast-food wrappers and empty bottles. They sleep on sidewalks or in tents under bridges, testing sanitation limits. It sounds pretty awful, I admit. This is the picture you and I see in our cities and towns. It makes us want to turn away and escape to our tidy houses. It makes us angry, too. Most of us work or worked when we were younger. Most of us portion out our paychecks for housing, food, clothing and occasional recreation.

Weirdly absent from much of the professional speculation about where and how Iran will exact its promised “severe revenge” for the U.S. drone strike killing of Quds Force Gen. Qassem Suleimani is mention of the dead man’s highly suggestive hint. During a time of intense saber rattling between Iran and President Donald Trump in July 2018, Suleimani gave a speech during which he called out the American president: “Mr. Gambler, Trump! I’m telling you that we are close to you, exactly where you wouldn’t think that we are.” So what might Suleimani have meant when he suggested his reach was closer than we think? You’d never know it from New York

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — In a rare display of emotion from the typically reserved and measured supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei cried openly Monday at the funeral of slain Gen. Qassem Soleimani, his most important military commander with whom he shared a deep bond. “Oh Allah, they are in need of your mercy, and you are exalted above punishing your servants,” Khamenei said in prayer as he stood over a flag-draped casket with the remains of Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Iraq on Friday. Khamenei’s voice cracked under the weight of the

The assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani is an unusual, possibly aberrant, event. The killing of this individual leader of a sovereign state may lead to all-out war between Iran and the U.S. — or, on the other hand, the assassination may bring an end to the cycle of Iranian violence countered by U.S. and world diplomatic flatulence and appeasement. (snip) the Iranians have been in an undeclared war with the U.S. since the ayatollahs and their religiously inspired and power-mad henchmen took over the reins of government from the despotic but pro-American Shah in the seventies.

George Lopez doubled down Sunday on the bounty Iran has put on President Trump — for half. The comedian replied to another Instagram user’s post Sunday that Iran had offered $80 million to any person who assassinated Mr. Trump’s “during the televised funeral of General #QasemSoleimani after he was assassinated last week.” Mr. Lopez replied: “We’ll do it for half.” As of 10:40 p.m. Sunday had received almost 350 replies and nearly 1,200 “like” reactions. Some of the reaction was outrage though. “@SecretService should take a look at this. The Left is sick,” Ryan Fournier, founder and co-chairman of Students for Trump, wrote on Twitter.

A stampede broke out in the massive crowds attending the funeral of Qassem Soleimani, the Iranian military commander slain in a US drone strike, killing dozens of people and postponing the burial ceremony, Iranian state television reported on Tuesday. The chaos erupted in Soleimani’s hometown of Kerman where tens of thousands of mourners packed the streets for the funeral procession of the slain Quds Force general. It wasn’t clear what prompted the stampede, but video of the scene showed people lying in the street as others rushed to their aid. Iranian state media reported that as many as 40 people were killed
