Hollywood Celebs Trash West Virginians, but New York and California Have Worse Literacy Rates

Hollywoodiot and left-wing actress Bette Midler recently attacked West Virginia as illiterates, and she is hardly alone. Most celebs do. But as it turns out, New York and California have worse literacy rates than West Virginia.

Midler, a lunatic leftist who disgorges her stupidity on Twitter nearly every day, recently posted an attack on Twitter: “What #JoeManchin, who represents a population smaller than Brooklyn, has done to the rest of America, who wants to move forward, not backward, like his state, is horrible. He sold us out. He wants us all to be just like his state, West Virginia. Poor, illiterate and strung out.”

She later tried to apologize with one of those non-apology apologies, but the fact is she is hardly alone. Nearly everyone in Hollywood pushes this canard that the people of West Virginia are illiterate. But a look at the actual literacy rats shows that these celebs are full of it. Even more to the point, New York and California have far worse instances of illiteracy that West Virginia.

Per Just The News:

West Virginia ranks 35th in U.S. literacy rates at 86.6% according to World Population Review. This is above the national literacy average of 79% per the Department of Education. The worst state for literacy rates is California, with a rate of 76.9%, meaning that more than one in five residents lack basic literacy skills. Following California’s low literacy rates are New York (77.9%), Florida (80.3%), Texas (81.0%) and New Jersey (83.1%).

With New York and California flooded with illegal immigrants, it isn’t surprising that no one can read!
