Did Bourdain just wake up to reality? You won’t BELIEVE this!
Anthony Bourdain, famed chef, and TV personality slams liberal elites for having ignored blue-collar Americans. He also denounces the slander of ‘gun-country’, God-fearing America.
In a new interview with Reason, the famous chef, author and host of CNN’s Parts Unknown eviscerated the left for their condescension of working-class America.
‘The utter contempt with which privileged Eastern liberals such as myself discuss red-state, gun-country, working-class America as ridiculous and morons and rubes is largely responsible for the up swell of rage and contempt and desire to pull down the temple that we’re seeing now,’ Bourdain said…
…’I’ve spent a lot of time in gun-country, God-fearing America. There are a hell of a lot of nice people out there, who are doing what everyone else in this world is trying to do: the best they can to get by, and take care of themselves and the people they love.
‘When we deny them their basic humanity and legitimacy of their views, however different they may be than ours, when we mock them at every turn, and treat them with contempt, we do no one any good.
‘Nothing nauseates me more than preaching to the converted. The self-congratulatory tone of the privileged left – just repeating and repeating and repeating the outrages of the opposition – this does not win hearts and minds.
