A great lesson in propaganda here. I long suspected that the term “flyover country” was not coined by “coastal liberal elites” (another ridiculous propaganda term), but rather by insecure Midwesterners themselves and then quickly picked up and promoted by political operatives. At any rate, the only time I come across this term is when it is spoken by right-wing populists who consistently claim (falsely) that “this is what those snobbish liberals call us.” – PC
Everyone knows where it is, especially in an election year. But the people who call the heartland “flyover country” aren’t who you think.
