Summary
Dana Loesch believes in Christianity, patriotism, traditional marriage, and the right to bear arms, among other "quaint" ideas. For the elites in DC, Los Angeles, New York, and Silicon Valley, that makes her as bizarre as a three-headed dog. Loesch is alarmed that America is fracturing into two countries-not North and South, but Coastal and Flyover. Worse, the people in charge don't understand the first thing about how most of the country thinks and lives. Consider a few examples... In Flyover America, people believe criminals should be punished. Coastal America focuses on "rehabilitation." Flyovers think the Declaration of Independence was crystal clear: "All men are created equal." For Coastals, Black Lives Matter-but anyone who adds that all lives matter must be a racist. Coastals think they understand firearms because they watched a TV movie about Columbine. Fly- overs get a deer rifle for their thirteenth birthday. Coastals talk about blue-collar workers in the abstract. Flyovers have a relative who works the night shift in a granola bar factory, where the big perk is taking home a bag full of granola bars every Friday. Coastals think every problem-from hurt feelings to the cost of birth control-requires government intervention and huge federal spending. Flyovers know that money isn't magic fairy dust, and many problems can be solved only by individual character and hard work. It would all be funny-if Coastals weren't winning on most of today's big issues. As Loesch writes, "Most of these pinkies-out, cocktail- drinking-appletini fans selfishly entertain grandiose plans of economic equality without realizing the negative impact their plans would have on the very people they pride themselves on helping. That's the true class warfare." Loesch shines the light of truth on everything from feminism to gun violence to abortion. She reveals the damage done by elitists who flat-out don't get the lives and values of people in the heart of the country. And she asks commonsense questions such as: How can you be angry at Walmart if you've never shopped in one' How can you hate the police if you've never needed help from a cop' How can you attack Christians if you don't have a single friend who goes to church' In other words, how can you run a country you've never been to' And how much could our politics improve if Coastals would actually listen to their fellow Americans' This book is a rallying cry for anyone who wants our leaders to understand and respect the culture that made America exceptional in the first place.
