David from Tennessee, a “Christian nationalist,” claimed “Christians” grow and deliver our food Welcome to The Signorile Report, where you’ll read hard-hitting political and cultural commentary and exposés, hear interesting conversations, and join in great discussions.
Heard this live. He needs to come out to California and see exactly who is producing and harvesting almost all produce that shows up in his grocery store. 2/3 of the country’s fruit and nuts produced here (80% of the world’s almonds) and 1/3 of the nation’s vegetables. If he wants all the undocumented immigrants to leave he can get off his ass and go pick. I bet he wouldn’t last 10 minutes. Do you recall years ago when immigration bans so adversely impacted the south Alabama had to use prisoners to try to pick melons and they couldn’t do it? And he thinks he and his fellow “Christians” can just snap their fingers and cut everyone off from food. What a macho UN-Christian little power trip, in addition to being completely false. This guy made me madder than almost any other Drump caller have heard on your show for awhile. You were MUCH nicer than I would’ve been. I live in the agricultural heartland and see how hard people work. Asshole.
I’m a trucker, haul food every so often, never identified as a Christian. That guy is full of manure.
This man and others like him are delusional .My partner and I we’ve been hauling produce for over 20 years now and have never seen any links to “Christianity”. We certainly don’t believe in organized religion and we take pride in what we do. It’s a good feeling knowing we help other Americans/Canadians have quality products to consume.
My first issue with the guy is he admits to being a Christian nationalist which means he is not loyal to America but his church. His church is some televangelist, it’s not even the doctrine in the Bible.
They don’t send us food that all the brown people pick, we don’t send them medicines, artificial hips, knees other technologies that they depend on. also, just like China we stop selling stuff to them they went elsewhere I’m sure Canada and Mexico would love to sell us produce. China’s invested heavily in Brazil to produce food I’m sure Brazil would love our business.
Incredible. Delusional, uneducated rural 'country folk' (as he calls himself) - these people listen to AM radio, to Alex Jones, Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and some very crazy preachers. They spew hatred, conspiracy theories, and toxic lies about democrats that are far from the teachings of Christianity. Your caller was clearly emboldened by the Capitol insurrectionists attack. It is great to hear you stand up to these kooks, but scary that there are a lot of them.
Certainly he was he sees himself as “true” christian” at least, that’s what they have attempted to convince us over the years.....we are just not buying it. The question to ask David...Would a true christian deprive the nation of sustenance?
Just hearing "Christian Nationalist" scares the hell out of me.
Ah, another ignorant x-tian right-wing goober giving us this superiority BS.
Christian Nationalist = I'm really a confused church-going white supremacist who supports insurrection.
If you had a teenage child, they couldn't get away with anything Michelangelo!
I'm also tired of how much we subsidize red states. TN was once a moderate state politically when Al Gore was a Senator until the 90's when it turned bright red. John Siegenthaler was a major influence in the media and worked with RFK and even Howard Baker, a prominent Republican, was well respected. Let's face it, every state has stupid people! Look at Devin Nunes and Kevin McCarthy!
Also, the state where David is from has COVID-19 rates through the roof.
When was the last time this moron David ever picked crops?
I laughed so loud while driving when i heard this. People stopped at the red light with me probably thought I was crazy. This kind of mentality is just plain hilarious, but scary at the same time.
And for what it is worth, here is what I say to "Christians."
I am a Christian. Jesus was one (not the only, but ONE) of the first "philosophers" who proposed compassionate love to deal with the brutality of the Roman Empire. He so espoused this new concept of love, that (in my opinion), he became Love. So when he said "The path to God is through ME," he was no longer speaking as Jesus Christ, but as Love. He had become Love. My problem with Christians is that they think the way to the God is through Jesus the man; rather, it is through Love (capitalized: as in compassionate love -- a new concept for that region of the world).
And "Christian Nationalist?" What the fuck is that?
I love the way you slap these guys around with the facts! Its hard for them to argue so they try to change the topic. But bam you hit em again! Even if David from Tennessee doesn't appreciate it I do!
Buon Giorno Commendatore! This one is special! I loves me some country folk and they above all else should realize when they squint through their myopic peepers that the only Jesus out in those fields picking our "food" is named Rodriquez for a big reason which obviously escapes this lint headed clod from Tennessee.....if only "He" could see............
