UC Berkeley Instructor: Rural Americans “Bad People” Who’ve Made “Bad Life Decisions”

The coastal academic was fiercely hostile to rural Americans.

A University of California-Berkeley instructor and graduate student attacked rural Americans in seemingly contemptuous terms in a now-deleted tweetstorm posted on Wednesday night.

Jackson Kernion is a graduate student at UC-Berkeley who teaches philosophy courses to undergrads. He made himself a target for criticism, some of which came from other left-leaning academics, when he came out with his surprisingly bigoted views against rural Americans.

Perhaps most shockingly, the elite-university philosophy academic went on to actually call for increased health care costs for rural Americans.

“Rural Healthcare Should be expensive! And that expense should be borne by those who choose rural America!”

It’s unclear what the young punk thinks that eroding rural healthcare programs is going to accomplish, but it’s more than likely that his desire to do so is more firmly rooted in prejudiced rancor than a real, coherent worldview.

Rural Americans are often left with a lack of decent health insurance options under the current American system. Some on the left, such as Bernie Sanders, have sought to offer policy solutions to this problem, but it appears that at least some coastal elitists such as Kernion actually don’t think rural Americans should even have healthcare.

Kernion ended up deleting his Twitter shortly after his tweetstorm, being widely rebuked for his prejudice. However, he did apologize shortly before for his remarks, admitting that his remarks came across as “crass and mean,” leaving open a chance that he could possibly learn and grow from the incident that revealed his starkly bigoted views. It does go without saying that an entire geographic demographic of Americans don’t even deserve healthcare is a bit more than “crass and mean,” though.

Ironically, many of the rural Americans who Kernion has voiced his dislike of would be quick to forgive the elite university student for his slighting of them. The men and women who he speaks of are instrumental in growing the food of urban America, and extracting the natural gas and oil used to power their cars, buses, trains and planes.

This New Jersey Latino Went from Being a Bernie Bro to a Trump Supporter

Yes, There are Hispanics Out There Who Support Immigration Restriction

Contrary to what the media say, there are Hispanics who support President Donald Trump in his re-election bid.

In a story for NorthJersey.com, the case of Marcos Marte, a former Bernie Sanders supporter in 2016 was put on display. As many disappointed Bernie supporters did after Hilary Clinton won the primaries in 2016, Marte left the Democratic Party and instead pulled the lever for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

Marte is the son of Dominican immigrants and will be voting for President Donald Trump this election cycle. He is doing so because of the president’s economic record before the Wuhan virus struck.  Additionally, Marte cited Trump’s tough border policies and stances on illegal immigration as another reason for why he’s voting for Trump.

“We have to elevate ourselves and I think Donald Trump is the only president that I’ve seen in my adult life that is putting America’s citizens’ values front forward,” declared Marte. “No matter what, we can still get out of where we are and empower ourselves to make our lives better … He is putting that right in front of us.”

While Marte’s comments may anger ethnic panderers, it’s indicative of a larger trend in the nation where Hispanics vote Democrat albeit at different rates depending on their nationality and the states they’re situated in. According to a Pew Research Center survey released in 2018, voters of Puerto Rican and Mexican origin leaned more Democratic. On the other hand, voters of Cuban descent tend to vote Republican.

Latinos are now the largest minority voting bloc in the country. 32 million will be eligible to vote in 2020 and states like New Jersey will have approximately 948,000 eligible voters according to the Pew Research Center’s findings.

Biden is projected to win a majority of the Hispanic voters in the national elections. A Pew report released earlier in October had Biden leading Trump among registered Hispanic voters 63 percent to 29 percent. However, certain polls in states such as Florida show a much more competitive race for Hispanic votes.

Marte used to be interested about Sanders’ free tuition for state colleges and universities plan. But now he finds immigration to be a more pressing issue. He is in favor of president Trump’s initiative to build a wall along the Mexican border in order to stymie sex trafficking and drug smuggling.

The New Jersey Trump supporter is one of many Hispanics who is drawn to the president because of his immigration policies. According to a Washington Post poll, 69 percent of Hispanics voiced their support for pausing immigration during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The media can pipe down about Trump’s immigration policies and their supposedly negative reception with Hispanics. This goes to show that Hispanics will never be the monolithic 80-20 vote that pundits and Democrat operatives want them to be. And that’s great for America.
