Democrats like to act like they care about voters all throughout the country, but the reality is they only care about Americans located in major cities.
Need proof? Check out the electoral map from this year’s election.
During a recent meeting between the House Energy and Commerce Committee featuring a testimony from Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, a California lawmaker referred to the majority of Middle America as “Podunk, USA.”
Conservative Tribune reports:
Pai was discussing his plans to further expand broadband internet access to more rural areas of the country — a project initially discussed under the former Obama administration, though they planned to do it through stricter regulations — and named off a few of the small towns he had personally visited in states like Kansas, Michigan and Pennsylvania that would benefit greatly from the increased access to the rest of the world that he hoped to bring them, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
An unnamed source inside the meeting informed the Free Beacon that Democrat California Rep. Anna Eshoo appeared to grow frustrated by Pai’s remarks and remarked that she wished Pai would stop talking about “Podunk, USA” and instead express more concern for the “venture capitalists” that lived in her district near Palo Alto.
The source relayed that most of the others in the room had a negative reaction to Eshoo’s “Podunk” comment, as it is generally considered a derisive slang term for small and therefore presumably unimportant areas. A committee member from one such area, in fact, expressed how little he appreciated Eshoo’s characterization of his constituents.
This is on the same level as Hillary Clinton calling the majority of Donald Trump’s supporters “deplorable.”
When Democrats make comments like this, it shows what they really think about the majority of Americans and how little respect they have for their voters.
