Democratic candidate for president, Michael Bloomberg, has tossed a blatant insult out to American farm families.

In an old video from 2016 released this week, Bloomberg stated “the agrarian society lasted 3,000 years, and we could teach the processes. I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer. It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn.”

It is a sad commentary that far too many think that farm produce comes from the grocery store, not understanding that it comes from the hard work of American farmers. Such ignorance is understandable coming from a two-year-old, but it is shocking coming from a New York City billionaire, former New York City mayor, and Democratic presidential candidate.

In recent years, it has become increasingly obvious that many self-appointed elitists in places such as New York City and San Francisco consider places such as Kansas and Nebraska, where America’s vast farmlands are, to be “fly-over country.” In that same speech in 2016, Bloomberg responded to a question about the possibility of uniting people in the middle part of the country with the people on the coasts, and he said that the problem was that many blue-collar workers are just not able to adapt to the information economy — even if they are educated to do so.

But Bloomberg did not stop with his condescending remarks about farmers — he also spoke in a derogatory manner about factory workers. “Then we had 300 years of industrial society. You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow and you can have a job. And we created a lot of jobs. At one point, 98 percent of the world worked in agriculture, now it’s two percent in the United States.”

Instead of farming and factory work, Bloomberg sees the future in the “information economy,” arguing that the “information economy is fundamentally different because it’s built around replacing people with technology and the skill sets that you have to learn are how to think and analyze, and that’s a whole degree level different. You have to have a different skill set, you have to have a lot more gray matter.” In other words, the farmers and the factory workers just are not all that smart.

But farmers and hard-working families are a lot smarter than “city folk” like Bloomberg think they are, and the “coastal elites” rely on their sweat and blood a lot more than they think they do.

In 1896, in his famous “Cross of Gold” speech at the Democratic National Convention, William Jennings Bryan said of those who considered the cities more important than the farms, “Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again, as if by magic. But destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country.”
