fuck this guy for pulling this shit when I have a deadline honestly Hi there, I work in ag! I also do canvassing in rural areas, including knocking doors in Bladen county NC- home of the NC-09 election fraud. You have no idea what you're on about.

I see a new-ish home on a private tract of land. Not a moldering old trailer on a rented plot in a park. I see TWO big pickup trucks, one of which seems to have a motorcycle or ATV in the back. I see a satellite dish and the dude's got his own dumpster.

I see a lot of coolers, a grill, yard tools, & racist flags in mint condition. That takes effort- those things fade fast. This is the home of someone who spends a lot of time and $ on leisure! This right here is a country playboy. "Radicalized by economic circumstances" ayfkm

If you stop & actually look at the stuff that's strewn around by the porch, it's not junk. It's in good condition. It's strewn around and the window's broken because THIS HOME JUST GOT RAIDED BY THE FBI NOT BECAUSE IT'S THE AVATAR OF YOUR WHITE-TRASH FANTASIES

Did you know that almost half the population of Bladen County works in the pork industry? Most of them work in the Tar Heel plant, aka the largest slaughterhouse in the world. It's 20 minutes from our house. So let's talk what RURAL POVERTY looks like. 'Cause this ain't it.

It can get real fucking grim. Crowded trailer parks w decaying modular homes, surrounded by puddles that never go away because swamps are where you put the poor people. And weird enough, it's not homogeneous. There's always a few neighborhoods with nice crisp clean new houses (:

Rural poverty is heavily skewed Latinx, Black, & Indigenous. The narrative about rural = white = poor is rich white folks' invention. It exists to keep all their REAL oppressed workforce, mostly BIPOC, hidden from public view.

JFC you'd think after watching the nation blow up with COVID hot spots fueled by meat plants people would have figured this out but NOPE, we're right back to the Save The White Trash Narrative. You learned NOTHING from this pandemic.

Bladen County is filled with broke pork BIPOC slaughter workers living in shoddy trailer homes but you don't see THEM running around trying to overthrow the gov't. That was the Republicans!

And they did it in a nice clean way. They didn't run around kidnapping governors bc they didn't need to. They just stole ballots. You know, the respectable kind of coup d'etat.

Which brings us to THIS dumpster fire of a tweet Nothing says "I'm woke" like buying into rich people's myth of themselves as obedient, supportive members of civil society. "People like this don't take up arms against their own gov't" ok do you really need a list

-Ammon & Cliven Bundy: rich men who took up arms against their own gov't -Donald Trump: rich man deploying armed forces against his own people in contravention of the rules of his own gov't -Vast majority of militias: it takes leisure & money to collect that many guns my dude

-The whole entire Confederate States of America: snotty rich kids' club -Not to mention the DeVoses, the Kochs, the Mercers, & every other white moneyed dynasty actively pillaging the rest of the US. They don't use guns bc they don't NEED to. Not bc they're nice.

Rich, propertied white folks are the single most militant demographic in the United States. And you know what they love? When journalists & "thought leaders" buy into their bullshit about how "poor whites are violent & the solution is to throw $$$ at rural areas [that we own]."

To be clear: poor white folks living in trailer homes are very real. They're too broke, tired, & sick to overthrow the government. That's what economic oppression does. It keeps you down. IDK how to explain the obvious fact that it takes MONEY & LEISURE to join/run a militia.

OP here is literally spreading right-wing propaganda. Right now. By blaming well-off white militants' behavior on "poverty," ergo the rest of us have to "save" them. When they're already well-off. Stop it. Think about what you've done. Do better.

Oh hello there numbers! shameless plug time If want to fight small-town economic anxiety, why not buy my masks? They're keeping a member of our county BOE employed in a safe COVID-free job so they can keep our elections running with integrity.
