How Liberal Elites Detest Middle America

Posted by M. C. on September 10, 2022

A house divided against itself cannot stand, said Abraham Lincoln, invoking a biblical truth. While the attributes and conduct Biden attributes to MAGA Republicans may not be such as to make a civil war inevitable, they surely do raise the question of whether our republic ought to endure or to be dissolved.

Speaking at a San Francisco fundraiser in 2008, Barack Obama sought to explain the reluctance of working-class Pennsylvanians to rally to his cause.

“You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and … the jobs have been gone now for 25 years, and nothing’s replaced them.”

“And it’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment … as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Translation: The world has left Middle America behind, and Middle America has reacted by clinging to its bibles, bigotries and guns.

Eight years later, Hillary Clinton was the Democratic nominee and, at a fundraiser in New York, addressed the same issue:

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? … The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it.”

“Now, some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.”

Last week, President Joe Biden addressed the same issue. But it was not with an off-the-cuff remark that our president revealed his thoughts.

At Independence Hall in Philadelphia, whence came the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and flanked by two U.S. Marines, Biden described the Middle Americans of 2022. Only now they’re known as “MAGA Republicans,” and no more anti-American assemblage is to be imagined.

In a speech he labored on for days, the president described that half of the Republican Party he sees as wedded to “semi-fascism.”

“The Republican Party today is dominated, driven and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans. And that is a threat to this country.”

“MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic.”

“MAGA forces … promote authoritarian leaders, and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country.”

“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards — backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.”

Biden is here hypocritically denouncing as “backward” moral stands championed by his own Catholic faith — opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage — that he himself held not so long ago.

Biden went on:

Watch: Obama Dancing At Maskless Martha’s Vineyard Birthday Bash

A performer at President Obama’s Martha’s Vineyard “scaled-down” birthday party allegedly uploaded pictures of the event and was immediately forced to delete them. 

Rapper Trap Beckham and manager TJ Chapman snapped pictures of the ‘epic’ birthday party with hundreds of maskless liberal elites partying like royalties while the ordinary folks, under the new health guidelines, are forced to wear masks and social distance at bars and restaurants. 

Before the pictures were deleted, fans of Beckham saved them that show there’s a two-tier society of liberal elites drinking top-shelf liquor, smoking expensive cigars, and eating fancy food in a maskless environment. The recording artist and his manager took pictures of themselves smoking weed behind the scenes. 

The pictures are troubling because this exposes the hypocrisy of the liberals who promote mask-wearing but don’t follow their own rules. No wonder there were rules about picture taking at the event because if the general public ever got a glimpse of the two-tier society, this would infuriate them. Here are the images below:

The NYPost reported that Beckham performed “Birthday B—h” for the former president. 

Beckham later explained he “had to delete everything [pictures] due to the rules. It was epic for sure. If any videos surface it’s going viral. He danced the whole time. Nobody ever seen Obama like this before.”

The birthday party was reportedly scaled back late last week amid critics bashing the Obamas for preparing to host up to 475 guests, served by at least 200 staff despite new warnings about a worsening pandemic.

Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Jennifer Hudson, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Bradley Cooper, Don Cheadle, Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade, Bruce Springsteen, Erykah Badu, Steven Colbert, and John Kerry were some of the A-list celebs in attendance. 

The party wound down around 0100 ET Sunday, and guests’ departures created massive traffic jams on the roads of small-town Oak Bluffs.
