Commentarion elm mentioned that lesbian corn farmers are the latest Right Wing bugbear.
I thought this might be some sort of Rule 34 thing, or perhaps some MRA got his wires crossed (again) and decided that somewhere in America, Ninja lesbians (disguised as farmers) are practicing for a nationwide attack on maledom by shucking corn.
This is because I forgot that the truth is always stupider.
The USDA has a number of diversity programs, including one for LGBT Americans who live in rural areas.
Contrary to widely held myths that the LGBT community is largely living in affluent metropolitan areas, studies show a very different and more realistic picture of the LGBT community. For a number of reasons, many people in the LGBT community choose to live, work, and raise their families in the rural communities that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is proud to serve.
In fact, according to the Williams Institute, “almost 10% of all same-sex couples in the country live in rural America” and these couples are actually more likely to be families of color and raising children. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force also issued a report finding that these couples are more likely to be low-income and are almost twice as likely to receive public assistance. The transgender community is particularly vulnerable.
Secretary Tom Vilsack spoke at this year’s event. And most of Rightwingistan started carrying on about lesbian farmers and precious tax dollars and they probably got something in there about Hitlery Clinton and Obama bin Laden and then it was time to check under the bed for terrorists.
But not Rush Limpbaugh, he was a daaaredevil!
Rural America happens to be largely conservative. Rural America is made up of self-reliant, rugged individualist types. They happen to be big believers in the Second Amendment. So here comes the Obama Regime with a bunch of federal money and they’re waving it around, and all you gotta do to get it is be a lesbian and want to be a farmer and they’ll set you up. I’m like you; I never before in my life knew that lesbians wanted to be farmers.
I never knew that lesbians wanted to get behind the horse and the plow and start burrowing.
Farming in the U.S. is still accomplished by horses, plows and burrowing (for the owls?), says expert on rural America.
I never knew it. But apparently enough money it make it happen, and the objective here is to attack rural states. They’re already attacking suburbs, and that has been made perfectly clear by what happened in Milwaukee. They’re going after every geographic region that is known to be largely conservative. They never stop, folks. They are constantly on the march.
