A Different Kind of Racist

When Chris Matthews angrily proclaimed he was F___ing sick of Southern Ranch Owners running this country , he was summarily bleeped off the Don Imus show (When Imus had a show.) no one worse for wear, and no one any wiser.   Imus probably would have been smarter to have let that F-bomb through and have censored a now more famous nappy-headed comment, but who ever said liberals were smart?

If you look at a map of the United States, where red represents the states that voted for a Republican and blue a Democrat, you’ll find the whole country is red, except for a few New England States, the left coast, and a couple northern mid western states with large population centers.

Basically, the break down segregates those who want government handouts and those liberal multi-millionaire elitists (who’ve had to toil little to obtain their wealth) from the rest of the United States made up of down to earth hardworking Americans; also known as “rednecks”.

It’s not easy being a redneck and living in California either.   Even living in Orange County, a conservative bastion, liberalism’s poison permeates this State, and because of it, California has one of the least friendly business atmospheres in the Union.  

In spite of this, commercial real estate and California’s economy is still quite strong even though our politicians are doing everything possible to destroy it.   Certainly they will succeed sooner or later.    Communism didn’t work in the Soviet Union nor in Eastern Europe and it won’t work here.    The sooner the rest of the nation can see Democrat policies reach their conclusion the better.  

While Chris Matthews’ disdain for tax-hating Americans who vote for Southern Ranch Owners is spun to show he is only intent on expressing his compassion and understanding for those unfortunate soles at the bottom of the economic spectrum, the spin, as articulate as it might be, can’t assuage his true feelings.   What Chris Matthews is sick of, is hardworking Americans like truck drivers, steel workers, construction workers, nurses, doctors, small business owners  (and maybe even one certain plastic manufacturing entrepreneur) who enthusiastically promote specific political policies through their votes.

Being sick of Southern Ranch Owners who run this country is being sick of champions who take up the cause of hardworking America.   It’s nice that Chris Matthews makes millions and he won’t seem to mind a tax increase from 35 to 40 percent when other than a Southern Ranch Owner takes up residence in the White House.  

Meanwhile, the real job producers, those aggressive small business owners who work eighty hours a week running a small retail store or a small manufacturing firm and who employ a score or two of workers are greedy because they make two or three hundred thousand dollars a year, and don’t want their taxes to go up when they can barely afford a decent house in California.

It is just too bad that these dumb Americans have to work so hard for their dough.  

In elitist circles, these are backward uneducated citizens who don’t deserve the millions bestowed upon the wise and educated TV journalists, actors, and actresses that promote leftist policy.   And besides, that’s what they get for being rednecks.    

You don’t have to be prejudiced against Blacks, Mexicans, Asians, Women or any other minority group to be a racist.    Prejudice against hard working Americans by the elite who believe slothful and tyrannical bureaucrats are better equipped to spend money they didn’t earn than the people who earned it qualifies  for racist.

Chris Matthews isn’t really  sick of Southern Ranch Owners , he’s sick of hard-working Americans choosing our President.
