"Flyover Country" is the stretch of land in
America between the two coasts. So designated by the snobbish elites
who reside in Hollywood and New York City. (Jerry Lewis liked to
boast how he enjoyed defecating on Mississippi). Residents of that
area prefer calling it Middle America. Since our mass communications
are largely headquartered on the two coasts, those elites have been
winning the culture war. The strongest pocket of resistance to
coastal hegemony is the Deep South. And that pocket keeps shrinking.
Look how closely country music shows now resemble glitzy Hollywood
celebrations. And politicians (including Republicans) cast
aspersions on past generations of southerners. Historians have never
focused on the North's role in slavery. The reason why no cotton
plantations existed in the north the soil there was too stony. The
insatiable need for more and more cotton was due to the textile
industry. (Located in New York City). Most of the ships that
transported slaves across the Atlantic were owned by northerners.
Then there is the depiction on television of southern hicks being
brutal and superstitious. (But do you know that no one was put to
death for being a witch in the south, as was almost routine in New
England)? Personally, I think it is time for the states in Flyover
Country to consolidate and secede from the corrupt coastal elites.
We can restart our Republic and once again have morning in America.
All in favor, raise your hands. Good! I thought so.
