They don’t know America, and they don’t much like it.


Ask journalists when they were last in a truck stop on an Interstate, last in Boone, North Carolina or Barstow, California or any of thousands of such towns across the country. Ask whether they were in the military, whether they have ever talked to a cop or an ambulance crewman or a fireman. Ask whether they have a Mexican friend, when they last ate in a restaurant where a majority of the customers were black.  Whether they know an enlisted man, or anyone in the armed services. Whether they have hitchhiked overnight, baited a hook, hunted, or fired a rifle. Whether they have ever worked washing dishes, harvesting crops, driving a delivery truck. Whether they have a blue-collar friend. Know what the Texas Two-Step is, have been in a biker bar.

  1. At one time or another I have been mot of the people cited, and come to think of it I don’t know any so-called journalists. I seriously doubt that any of them would ever deign to get out of their comfort zones and bother to consort with me. Pity, they don’t have a clue about reality.

  2. Darn good comment!

    Trouble is–these alleged “journalists” today DON’T WANT TO KNOW either reality or truth. Vast numbers of them nothing more than stooges or ideologues of Marxism or some other godless cult of death.

    Pity—it’s about to hit them head on shortly. Sure will be a wake up call for ’em. But dollars to donuts, they won’t have a clue on reporting it.
