DC Insider Reveals True Feelings About Rural White Voters

David Atkins, a Californian regional director for the Democratic Party and a Bernie Sanders supporter, criticized rural white voters for lacking gratitude in a Twitter thread posted Thursday night.

In the thread, Atkins wrote that rural voters are “heavily subsidized, drowning in federal largesse, blessed with political affirmative action & overrepresentation, have all their bills paid by cities and blue states,” but still “whine and yell constantly.”

In subsequent tweets, Atkins blasted Fox News watchers, claiming that “The Fox News cult hates the values of the vast majority of Americans who aren’t rural white evangelicals and want nothing to do with them.”

Atkins did temper his criticisms, expressing sympathy for rural whites. “Don’t get me wrong: I’m all about reaching out & showing rural white America that it’s the plutocrats that are hurting them, not people of color. Rural white America really is hurting,” he clarified.
