Berkeley Instructor Bashes Rural America Claiming “We Should Shame Them.”

There is nothing wrong with living in a rural area. Farms are in rural areas as well as some factories and mills. America needs farms they provide us food. We need every variation of farm that we have, from cattle to soy. This is such a stupid argument coming out of a Berkeley professor. The professor must not have been thinking clearly as rural areas are just as important as cities. They both serve a purpose in our society, and neither should be shamed.

Jackson Kernion, who describes himself as a Graduate Student Instructor at Berkeley, having taught at least 11 philosophy courses at the university since 2013, took to Twitter Wednesday to explain the academic reasoning behind his distaste for people from rural America, calling those who live in rural areas “bad people who have made bad life decisions.”

Kernion began the thread by advocating against affordable healthcare solutions in rural America, saying that “Rural Healthcare Should be expensive! And that expense should be borne by those who choose rural America!”

He later tweeted:

“I unironically embrace the bashing of rural Americans. They, as a group, are bad people who have made bad life decisions.”

“Brad Blakeman, an adjunct professor of public policy and international affairs at Georgetown University, called the comments “nuts” on “Fox News @ Night” Monday and said “cities need to take care of their own” because “rural America is doing just great.”

Fox News contributor Doug Shoen added: “We started as a rural country. We remain at our heart linked to rural communities. Thank goodness for small towns, farms, and traditional values.”

Kernion later weakly apologized about the tweets calling his past post a “bad tweet” that he would “reflect on.”

The professor deleted the tweet after coming to his senses. But really he should do more than the ‘my bad’ excuse. He should wholeheartedly admit that he is wrong and explain that rural areas are important. He is a teacher, influential to his past students, he needs to own his mistakes.
