Liberal Derision Helps Explain Why They Lost

What we’re seeing right now is shades of the 2004 general election aftermath, with the added bonus of lots of violence and property damage, mostly by Democrat voters. And liberals do not seem to get why they’ve been repudiated. Before we get to that, let’s consider

Then we get this from Jill Lawrence at USA Today, whining about blue America not being heard, and something else

Poor, poor pitiful flyover country. Never getting the attention or respect or economic consideration it deserves. Never having a president to call its own.

Very unfair!

Right there, you can feel the derision and condescension from Ms. Lawrence, as typified within the Democratic Party base. Already, Democrats have trotted out the dusty 2004 memes of “Dumbfuckistan”, “Jesusland”, and flyover country, that being the nicest. But, it still shows that uber-leftist sneering at people who do not live in the big cities, who live in the suburbs, farming country, and so on. Do you vote for a party that denigrates you and de-values you?

As for having a say, Republicans are now completely in charge — governors and legislatures — in 24 states, up from 20 before the election. They have partial control in many more. These states are in flyover country, in the South, even in New England. If that’s not getting your voice heard, what is?

That’s what happens when you not only revile people as being part of flyover country, but, treat interest groups (blacks, white working class, latinos, etc) as yours, but don’t put the work in.

It’s also a fact that the economy has greatly improved on Obama’s watch, but obviously there are areas that are left behind. Rust Belt voters in particular placed their bets on Trump. This is ironic given that Obama saved their auto industry while most Republicans opposed the bailout and Trump himself was both for it and against it.

The economy may have gotten a bit better post-recession, but, it has tended to be better for those who are rich in the Obama economy. Those same auto industries have seen manufacturing continue to move to Canada and Mexico (while foreign auto makers, not part of the bailout for the most part, have settled in “flyover” country). Rust belt voters apparently think different from the hoity toity Ms. Lawrence.

Give Obama credit where credit is due: he’s a Tier One campaigner, one of the best of all time. He made people feel special and engaged them. He went to the counties and cities. He talked to them. Yet, that did not translate to down-ballot races, partly because Dems didn’t seem to like many of the people who they expected to vote for them. Do not expect this to get better anytime soon, as Dems trot out their continued hatred for flyover country, along with calling all the Trump voters racists, sexists, xenophobes, and so forth.

    See this is the lies that the left keep telling themselves and believing it….They keep pointing to the unemployment rate as some holy graille.

    They are deceiving themselves, lying to themselves, making stuff up and believing it and then when they lose the election they are…..

    BUH>>>BUH>>>>BUH>>>>BUTTTTT….Things are ah..ah…GREAT…..Look at all weve done for you.

    Yeah Im not gonna go over the litany of misery as everyone here knows it except our resident lefties which believe that the unemployment rate is really 4.9 percent.

    They dont understand that ACA has forced companies to scale back jobs and cut jobs from 40 hours to 24….

    They are screaming for McDonalds to pay 15 bucks an hour because all these people that are so happy with the democrats are working 15-20 hours a week at a fast food site taking jobs from teenagers just to feed themselves and their families….

    The middle class that the LEFT PRETENDS TO CARE SO MUCH ABOUT are the ones absorbing this Obamacare premium fiasco and watching their coverages halve while their premiums double and they get NO SUBSIDIES…..yet the left is sure they have greatly aided society with a half assed, poorly written, designed to fail program because they were playing the long game here….Universal health care for all as a result of a continued public support of leftist policies that are miserable to 3/4ths of this country.

    The left detached themselves from reality….Fully believing that they would inherit HRC and she would finish what Obama started.

    And she has finished what he started….The people spoke…and Im not just talking about Trump Im talking about the massacre the left has absorbed under obama and his policies in the house, senate and governorships along with state and local governing bodies….

    Its across the board….its just not Trump eeking out a slight win while losing the popular vote….its a full blown revolt against leftist policies all across this nation with the exception of 3-4 DEEP BLUE STATES that house 2/3rds of all the Democratic house of Representatives….

    Yeah the left doesnt get it….they still have themselves deluded into the fact that the PERSONALLY POPULAR OBAMA translated into the LEFTS POLICIES AS BEING POPULAR and they were not….the results in 10, 14, and 16 prove that resoundingly.

    I was hanging out with a close friend yesterday, talking about family and friends. She said that she has 23 nieces and nephews in a Midwest city area and only one of them has a full time job. There simply are no full time jobs for young people there. Half of them have part time jobs. This, she said, was an example of why the people voted for change.

    As a happy denizen of fly over country, it was a pleasure sending a great big FU to the establishment elites.

  4. Hank_M says:

    JGlanton, your friend makes perfect sense. Between Obamacare, wrecking the economy, trying to implement a $15 minimum wage, and open borders, the left has been destroying the livelyhoods of a lot of Americans.
    They don’t see it, or they simply do not care, or both.

    Hopefully, Trump can do something about it.

    Hank_M, they do see it and they do care because it is their goal. Can you tell me one leftist policy that is designed to make America great? How many leftists o you know that you would consider patriotic? When was the last time the left held a march FOR America? Do you think leftists see America as a nation of great Freedom, great Opportunity and great deeds or a country of racists, xenophobes, homophobes and bigots?

    We know what the left is even if they won’t admit it. As long as they control education, entertainment and the media America is in peril.

    Back in the mid 70’s a high ranking KGB official defected to America….He went on the Dick Cavet show and said basically that the KGB’s plan to destroy America was from the inside out….he then went on to layout the recipe….

    The recipe is the progressive lefts agenda today…verbatim….word for word.

    nuff said.

  7. Jeffery says:

    And yet it’s Comrade Pussy Grabber playing footsies with the KGB’s Putin.

  8. Liam Thomas says:

    Why is russia suddenly such an enemy again to the left…..They have no enemies…they all want to sing kumbyeahhhhhh and sit around the campfire humming mantras and demanding the world get along…..

    but then suddenly the kremlin hacks the dnc and they are enemies of the world…..

    No they are enemies of the Democrats…..

    and why would that be do you suppose? Because HRC as secretary of state tried to influence Russias elections and interfered with Putins grand scheme……..

    Its one thing to try and block another countries agenda…its quite another to interfere with elections…..HRC simply got pay back…..and as far as Syria? Syria is to Russia what Israel used to be to America…that is before Progressive took over foreign policy.

  9. Jeffery says:


    The authoritarians always stick together. Liberals don’t oppose Russia, per se, they oppose authoritarianism.

    Why does President-elect Pussy Grabber love Putin and Assad? Peas in a pod. Grabbing money, power and pussy, regardless of who gets hurt.

  10. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    President elect Pussy Grabber….That’s hilarious. Yet he beat that stinky, filthy, crooked, commie, crimial Klepto Killary into the dirt from which she sprang. Buh-bye Killary. Hahahahahahaha.

    Up next for President elect Pussy Grabber is grinding Obummers legacy into $hit. Ahhh, Making America Great Again by crushing one leftist at a time is so much phukin’ fun!

    Now go back to your safe space Jeffery, you’re a clown and so are your loooooser candidates. Hahahahahahaha.
