Default UC Berkeley instructor calls rural Americans 'bad people' who deserve 'uncomfortable'

Exhibit A on Liberal elitism...

UC Berkeley instructor calls rural Americans 'bad people' who deserve 'uncomfortable' lives



Quote:
A UC Berkeley graduate student and instructor took to Twitter to shame "rural Americans" and those who aren't "pro-city."

Jackson Kernion, who has reportedly taught at least 11 philosophy courses at the California university, made the comments last Wednesday.

"I unironically embrace the bashing of rural Americans," Kernion wrote in a now-deleted tweet. "They, as a group, are bad people who have made bad life decisions...and we should shame people who aren't pro-city."

Kernion started going after rural citizens, saying they should have higher health care, pay more in taxes and be forced to live an "uncomfortable" life for rejecting "efficient" city life, Campus Reform reported.

Brad Blakeman, an adjunct professor of public policy and international affairs at Georgetown University, called the comments "nuts" on "Fox News @ Night" Monday and said "cities need to take care of their own" because "rural America is doing just great."

Obviously, this idiot has never spent a lot of time in rural America outside of the confines of left leaning states. He should really spend some time in the mid west and get to know some of us that he is denigrating.

Not to bash those that live in cities, but people living in rural areas are generally more self sufficient and less reliant of government as government services are not readily available in these areas. We don't depend on some gov't agency to take care of our children, our elderly or those needing assistance. We as a community, do it ourselves.

The words "UC Berkeley instructor" and "intelligent" are antonyms.

Perhaps someone with a twitter account should tell the moron that without those bad decision making rural people, he starves to death in the dark.
