Thread: Rural Americans Are Bad People

  1. #1

    Rural Americans Are Bad People

    https://life.gomcgill.com/uc-berkele...w3tcyATeDFvRoo

    Jackson Kernion, a Berkeley professor, sent out a tweet that said rural Americans are "bad people who have made bad life decisions." He goes on to say that people who reject the more efficient city lifestyle should have to pay more for medical care, broadband internet, higher taxes and should have their lives be made as uncomfortable as possible until they move to the city. He says city dwellers shouldn't have to carry the burden rural Americans have placed on them through the inefficiency of the rural lifestyle.

    I don't what I can say without resorting to wholly unflattering observations about the mental faculties of certain professors and the vileness of their agenda.

    YES. PLEASE. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE'VE BEEN ASKING FOR--STOP "CARRYING OUR BURDEN" AND LEAVE US THE HELL ALONE PLZ KTHNXBAI

    In other news, when Mosby talks about the increasing balkanization of the United States, I'm beginning to suspect he's not crazy.

    I'd love to have him as a guest speaker in my rural town.

    Where do all these superior Urbanites get their food, water, fuel, energy etc. Do all these necessities of life just magically appear? I think they need to read about what might happen in case of a disaster - either manmade, natural, pandemic, etc.

    Are you loyal to the constitution or the government?

    Jackson Kernion is NOT A UC Berkeley professor. He is a PhD student.

    It’s an important distinction. It is an insult to class this individual in the same level as those who have worked and accomplished more. I do not let my students call me “professor” even if I am the instructor-of-record, because it is a earned title.

    The point is that the opinion of somebody who has accomplished nothing, published nothing, is worth precisely what you paid for it via Twitter; nothing.

    Good luck on the job market with a Philosophy PhD, kid.

    If only we could somehow harness the energy dumbasses put into being dumbasses. Global warming would be a thing of the past.

    I remember this singer/song writer type on NPR (back decades ago when I sometimes listened) named Bill Harley who made the same argument, in a kid's song he wrote no less, but not quite as rudely. It is one of those things that stuck both in my head and in my craw. I remember thinking that I was paying taxes to hear the asshat and for him to have access to the airwaves. Disgusting.
