    In News From The Redoubt section of today’s SurvivalBlog, in the MARXIST Canadian McLean opinion piece about the alleged divide between rurals and city-folk, the author uses the word ‘yokels’ in a derogatory sense.

    Now, I don’t mean to poke thumbs in my direction, but around here, the yokels produce the food, deliver the food, operate the water-treatment plants, and generally keep the city-folk from hurting themselves.

    I think derogatory words create and worsen divides.
    Or maybe that is the intent of the McLean author…
