Response to Rural_Progressive (Reply #10)

Thu Oct 11, 2018, 03:12 PM

14. I have spent a lot of time in E. WA.

I have a project in Chelan right now. My wife works in Cheney, Pullman, Moscow.

I know people in E. WA hold a great many beliefs (fears, mainly) that have no basis in reality, they think urbanites are effete snobs and godless sodomites, and they won't listen to countervailing facts.

Just like country folk I've met in SE Indiana. In fact, they're pretty much exactly like rural people across the globe. Sure, #notallruralpeople, but it's a real thing: xenophobia.

Its why I supported Rittereiser for the 8th District. He knows how to appeal to E. WA. He's from there, and Schreier hasn't a clue how to start.
