J.D. Vance (Hillbilly Elegy) launches an exploratory committee for Ohio US Senate seat

Heís a total RWNJ. Itís only being reported by National Review and Fox News. https://www.nationalreview.com/news/j-d-vance-launches-exploratory-committee-for-ohio-u-s-senate-seat-report/ Isnít Tim Ryan running for that seat or am I wrong?

5. People actually FROM Appalachia have been calling him out as a poser and fraud for YEARS

He's always been a poser and a fake and a close friend of upscale academic racists like Charles Murray.

But it's so hard to get people to listen to us, because he played into the narrative of what both Republicans AND snobby urban liberals want to believe about Appalachia. They don't want to hear about the leftist labor history here, or the Black and Native people here, or the LGBTQ+ people here or the environmental fights.

Flush Hillbilly Elegy down the toilet.

Here are some actually GOOD books about Appalachia:

7. JD'S

Book was about his dysfunctional family in Middletown.

I am here to say there were hundreds of thousands just like them who moved from the South that are nothing like his family!

As one man said,Ē That book and movie make us all sound like a bunch of ignorant hillbillies who voted for Trump!Ē

9. Truth doesn't sell, I am afraid. And THAT is why stereotypes persist, doing great damage.

11. I'm a bookworm but I never bought his book when

everyone was lauding him for it. Then the truth started coming out about him. He doesnít try to hide it anymore on Twitter. Heís horrible.

12. And yet a lot of progressives promoted him as part of the

"we need to understand these people because we need them on our side" delusion.

15. Don't get me started on the group of people promoting him.

They're like the MAGAs of the left.
