Aren’t you just sooo sick of arrogant New York, Lady Gaga listening, Sex & the City watching liberals “ramming” and “pushing” their ideological phalluses “down our throats”? I know I feel like I’m choking on a giant cock every time Obama passes another socialist policy that’s tearing apart America’s families and telling women that motherhood is just plain EVIL.
Thank god we have virulent anti-feminist and anti-choice women as our “last line of defense” against left wing, left coast attacks on our femininity and morality. And they’re so good looking too!
But really, where shall I start with this one? It’s like the conservative movement just graciously delivered feminist critics a package that was even nicely wrapped with a bow of racial tokenization!
I suppose I can start with the title, “Fire from the Heartland”, which is paired with the serene image of waving wheat fields and a standalone red barn. It’s so simple, yet it says so much, like, “We lay claim to the entire middle region of the country, bitches.” I mean, who needs those “New York people” when you’ve co-opted everything from Nebraska to Ohio? The conservative movement, that’s who.
According to the second definition in Miriam Webster’s online dictionary, heartland is “the central geographical region of the United States in which mainstream or traditional values predominate”. However, out of the 15 “cast members” listed on the website, only 4 of them are from the Midwestern United States, and all four of them call St. Louis home.
So where do some of these other women hail from? Ann Coulter, the inane pundit who liberals love to hate and conservatives love to jerk off to, is the main mouth piece of this documentary, but oddly enough she was born in New York City. Her family then moved to Connecticut (I guess you could call it the heartland of the Northeast), and she went to college at New York’s most prestigious private university, Cornell. I actually think Ann Coulter has more in common with Carrie Bradshaw than I do; they’re both super skinny blondes from NYC who have a ton of money.
At least 5 of the other women in the film are also from the Northeast. Fox News sweetheart Michelle Malkin is from Philly, and S.E. Cupp, conservative columnist for the New York Daily News did her undergrad Cornell, and got her Master’s at NYU. Project 21 fellow and black Tea Party member, Deneen Borelli, is a resident New Yorker and attended Pace, a private university in NYC. These women don’t exactly exemplify the rural mainstream we’re supposed to think of when we see those golden fields of wheat. In fact, there’s nothing mainstream about attending an Ivy League university.
