(Patriot.Buzz) – In a shameless attack towards rural Americans, a former MSNBC leftwing host recently compared the “anger” of rural Americans with the hate harbored by terrorists in conflict-ridden regions.
During his appearance on “Morning Joe,” Chris Matthews dived into the key role of anger in driving voter turnout in elections, mainly focusing on what he characterizes as resentment from rural Americans towards the liberal elite.
Matthews stated that rural Americans feel alienation and anger, perceiving themselves as overlooked and belittled by the coastal elites, especially those on television. “This is rural rage. They are so angry at the liberal establishment, the coastal elite, they look at people on television … ‘They don’t have to worry about us,'” Matthews said.
He claimed that when the media criticizes former President Donald Trump, his supporters feel attacked as well. “And the regular guy in the country goes, ‘there they are snarling and making fun of us again’ and every time we make fun of Trump, we’re making fun of them … It’s a weird thing, but in a way, it’s like fighting terrorism.”
Matthews drew a parallel between this domestic political narrative and international military interventions. He reflected on the increased resentment and hostility that often arise in response to military actions in countries like Afghanistan and Iraq.
“We think we just put the army in, or Israel just puts the IDF in, and they’re going to solve the problem. It never solves the problem because you enrage people. And we did it with Afghanistan and we did it with Iraq. We enraged the enemy to the point where they’re more fiery than ever and they hate us more than ever. Armies don’t make peace.”
In related news, Joe Biden’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently withdrew a nearly $900 million award to Elon Musk’s SpaceX, intended to expand broadband internet access to rural Americans.
The decision has been criticized by FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr, who stated, “The real loser is gonna be rural America. Elon Musk is gonna be fine — the $900 million isn’t that big of a deal to him — but we had millions of Americans that were guaranteed to get high-speed service that now the FCC has taken that commitment, vaporized it and replaced it with nothing.”
