Following correspondent Andrea Mitchell referring to Iowa as "Too white, too evangelical, too rural" on Sunday's NBC Nightly News, on Monday's Rock Center, correspondent Willie Geist spoke to University of Iowa Professor Stephen Bloom, who similarly fretted: "It's basically a white, very, very Christian state."
Geist explained how Bloom has been "in hiding" since writing a scathing article in The Atlantic attacking Iowa as, "An assortment of waste-toids and meth addicts with pale skin and rotted teeth or those who quixotically believe, like Little Orphan Annie, that the sun will come out tomorrow." Bloom also ranted: "Those who stay in rural Iowa are often the elderly waiting to die."
“Too white, too evangelical, too rural”
okay as in...
No eric holder’s people?
No freaky religions?
no big cities full of crime?
Yea! Our kind of place!
He shot that wad and now is in hiding? I should think.
The liberals just keep pushing the envelope!
cornfed rednecks... with gay marriage (duck’n & runn’n)
But Bloom, an employee of an Iowa state school, is not too good to take the tax dollars of those palefaced wasteoids with rotting teeth.
"NBC Gives Platform to Professor Who Called Iowans 'Meth Addicts' and 'Elderly Waiting to Die' "
I don't think it's really a good idea for NBC to insult the only two groups of people who still watch their network.
It’s the standard fare - self-loathing pseudo-intellectuals with a death wish.
They are Quacks.
Why anyone would send their children to government schools to be brainwashed by these clowns is one of those imponderables, and at the parents expense, even.
Liberals are the most biggoted Americans.
NBC = Nothing But Crap
An assortment of waste-toids and meth addicts with pale skin and rotted teeth or those who quixotically believe, like Little Orphan Annie, that the sun will come out tomorrow.” Bloom also ranted: “Those who stay in rural Iowa are often the elderly waiting to die.”
Being that he lives there, which category does he fit under?
Cornfed or cornliquor?
Four years ago, these "waste-oids and meth addicts" launched The Obamessiah's campaign, while handing the Hildebeest a solid thrashing -- she even trailed the Silky Pony.
I wonder what Andrea Mitchell, Stephen Bloom and NBC thought about Iowans back then...
Note: Born in New Jersey, Bloom attended the University of California, Berkeley, and received a B.A. in Journalism in 1973.
They’re sly though. Give us slavery and Jim Crow, then blame the opposition party and get the former victims to BELIEVE it.
And NYC has too many jews and blacks and thank goodness there are no druggies in that sh!t hole.
And IA is a state that Obama won in 2008. Looks like Bozo’s friends think he is in heap big trouble.
The terrible burden this poor liberal professor must carry being so superior to the folks around him. Maybe he will do something wonderful for the State of Iowa and move.
And clinging to their guns and religion. /s
