it's weird how in any discussion of the left-wing political potential of rural America the focus is always on the stereotypical lifted truck driving trucker cap wearing independent farmer and not, like, the masses of migrant laborers who work on those farms

@tara_chara I think the reason is because those are the people who can/will/do vote in those areas. The other people obviously still matter, so in terms of non-electoral politics (striking, unionizing, etc) they are still relevant, but a lot of political discussion is solely electoral.

@tara_chara I say this a lot irl but it’s because basically anyone with a vested interest in political mobilization spends their time doing other things than posting about car dealership owners larping as rednecks
