Is she so wrapped up in her DC bubble that she knows this little about who ‘those people’ really are? It sure wouldn’t surprise any of us.
Who are ‘those people’ in this instance?
Most of the time we would mean those ‘rubes’ in ‘flyover country’.
Deplorables. Chumps. Bitter clingers. We’re known by a lot of names in her circles.
But this time we’re narrowing it down to a group within the group: White conservative evangelicals. Because that’s who they are specifically targeting.
She was telling us about Team Biden’s bold new plan to ‘reach out’ to these strange and elusive creatures. They are going with targeted advertising and the advertising they have chosen says more about them than about us.
“We’ve run PSAs on the ‘Deadliest Catch,’ we’re engaged with NASCAR and Country Music TV,” Psaki told reporters. “We’re looking for a range of ways to get directly connected to white conservative communities.”
It sounds as if all Ms. Psaki knows about white conservatives was learned through former President Obama, Mrs. Bill Clinton and Peter Strzok, the disgraced FBI agent.
…Why don’t they add ‘Green Acres’ in there or ‘Petticoat Junction’ or ‘The Beverly Hillbillies,’” Huckabee said, tongue-in-cheek.
Huckabee said he’s never seen such cluelessness coming from the White House press briefing room.
“Their idea that only white conservatives sit around watching the ‘Deadliest Catch’ and ‘CMT’ and NASCAR pretty well defines us as a limited cultural species,” Huckabee told Starnes.
Ironically, the Biden administration has gone out of its way to remind Americans not to stereotype or be judgmental.
“What is it when you take an entire group of Americans and you narrowly define them as a bunch of people who only eat at Cracker Barrel and Waffle House,” Huckabee wondered.
It would be like someone suggesting that Ms. Psaki, who was raised in Connecticut, is a woke liberal elitist whose idea of a good time is a poetry slam followed by a hearty kale salad at an organic farm-to-table restaurant.
You’d think this would be easier for someone like her to figure out.
Think of the difference between Dems and conservatives.
The Democrats seem to have no limiting principle in their ability to proceed lockstep in agreement with whatever Democrat ideas are currently in vogue. But conservatives can’t even agree on which issues are important enough to take a stand on.
Obama hadn’t even gone on record in support of same-sex marriage until he was running for his second term not quite 9 years ago, but sterilizing children is suddenly a hill the entire left is ready to die on?
Conservatives don’t share a hive-mind or group-think. Unlike theirs, our news and opinion sites don’t even share the same views or support the same candidates. So, what makes these people think we all watch the same TV and listen to the same music?
This writer grew up surrounded by Country music and has some respect for NASCAR, but if you want to get my attention, give me hockey, an electric guitar and a kickass drum solo over a two-step any day of the week. (No offense.) And have these Democrats never heard of Kid Rock or Ted Nugent?
Last I heard, they played for our team.
We’re individuals. That’s the POINT of conservatives. We are not the monochrome grey-face NPC army of drones they’re used to dealing with.
The good news about their grossly misinformed characterization of white evangelical Christians is that misunderstanding an opponent can lead to underestimating them.
And if we can manage to set up a fair fight in 2022 (one that has Big Tech staying out of it)… that’s good news, and something of an advantage, for the rest of us.
