The Prairie Home Companion aired on taxpayer funded radio for decades (it made Garrison Keillor a millionaire though). Like a lot of liberal entertainment, all the white people were nerdy and uncool. It was a mixture of song and jokes, and my favorite part: The News from Lake Wobegon. This fictitious Minnesota town was chockful of “Norwegian Lutherans”. The only thing more uncool than white people, was Jesus loving Christians.
Every week Garrison would tell about the silly shenanigans of those small town Minnesotans. Because white people and Christians are the only ones you can make fun of nowadays. Their church socials and Jello salads. Growing up in Iowa we always had a special relationship with Minnesota. It was not unheard of for Iowans to vacation up there 50 years ago. Sure we made ‘Minnesota jokes’, and they made ‘Iowa jokes’, It was all in fun because they were the best of people back then. Damn near as good as us.
They were like our cousins, the ugly cousin to be sure, but they were family. It ain’t that way today. Minnesota is a shithole. They brought in all those Somali savages with their bell-ringing Sharia shit, to the point I can’t imagine decent people would want to live there. Hell, they sent a terrorist to Congress! What its called is ‘population replacement’. Well you did it. How’s it working out for you?
I think you were a better State when all you had was those nerdy white people. Its okay to be white.
