On Thursday a far-left-wing activist posted to Twitter a “proposed map” of two new countries, the United States of Canada and Jesusland. Shortly thereafter, she deleted the map from her Twitter feed and apologized once she realized what she’d done.
The mistake left-wing activist Amy Siskind made was assuming that conservatives would take offense to be separated into their own country. It turns out, in fact, that conservatives would absolutely love and adore the idea.
Below is a screenshot of Siskind’s original tweet:
In Siskind’s fantasy world, horribly-run far-left states such as California, Oregon, and New York would be annexed to Canada and thus become part of the new left-wing nation known as the United States of Canada.
Meanwhile, the rest of the states — including Florida, Texas, North Carolina, etc. — would form their own new right-wing country named Jesusland.
It’s presumed that Jesusland would be a true utopia, per se, where religious freedom, free speech, gun rights, due process, deregulation, and common sense would be valued, whereas the USC would be a macroscopic version of the hellhole known as California.
Thus, with these presumptions in mind, Siskind’s proposal seemed like a winning proposition.

I would happily pay more taxes if needed to make up for net federal losses from blue states if it meant I never had to care what they think again.

Honestly, agreed. Let’s just get this overwith. Jesus land will need strong border walls for sure

JesusLand is a place of tolerance and self determination. The patriotic surge will create an economy the likes of which the word has never seen. Also we have a lot of oil.

I love that this is an attempt to demean people in red states… as if! Blues can have the majority of money (they’ll still be broke overspending) and Ivy League schools, I’ll take 90% of the guns, free speech, balanced budgets, faith, kindness, honesty and voluntary community

The only real complaint was that some of the states and Canadian territories included in the USC would fit better in Jesusland because of their local citizens’ political views.
Like one critic opined, “The problem with this proposal is that Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, the Northwest Territories, Yukon, most of British Columbia, and much of eastern Washington, eastern Oregon, and much of northern California would choose to go with the freedom-and-liberty nation.”
The critic was somewhat right.
Below is a map detailing California’s political divides:
It looks like the northern and eastern parts of California would be more inclined toward joining Jesusland, meaning the state would have to be broken apart in Siskind’s fictional world. That, of course, wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing.

This map is not accurate, the east side of the Pacific states would also join Jesusland as well as western PA

Siskind deleted the original tweet shortly after posting it and then later published an apology in which she claimed she’d “offended” people …
I sent a tweet in response to Limbaugh’s comments on secession that was meant to be cheeky in response to the hypocrisy of the GOP not wanting to “bail out” blue states w/ Covid. It was poorly written and the meme was a bad choice. Was offline for a few hours…
— Amy Siskind 🏳️🌈 (@Amy_Siskind) December 10, 2020
and came back to the shitstorm I had caused.
My apologies to anyone offended. It was just sloppy work and I take the responsibility and will be more careful in constructing what I post. I am always a work in progress, but today I failed. Please accept my apology.
— Amy Siskind 🏳️🌈 (@Amy_Siskind) December 10, 2020
But who in the world did she offend?
Far-left liberals just like her, ironically enough. As members of some of the states she’d designated as parts of Jesusland, they took great offense to her proposal because they believe Republicans want to “slaughter” them …
Look (*Language warning):
there’s a lot of queer and black people in those red states, dude. they are not going to be okay.
— Merry Magdalene (@MagsVisaggs) December 10, 2020
It makes sense that you voted for McCain and have the job you do because you hate black ppl (who are most of the southern population) and poor ppl.
Good job throwing out multiple states w/ queer and more specifically trans state senators, but lmao 🏳️🌈 in the name rite? <3

Y’all are shocked that @amy_siskind doesn’t care about poc? She’s literally the poster child of Hillary supporters who voted for McCain bc they wanted a woman in the White House before a black man. She’s awful. pic.twitter.com/jC2D99QOvV
— Eve 6000 🌹🦋 (@alsoabouteve) December 11, 2020
yeah let’s just abandon all of the queer people, POC, and poor people stuck in red states and working to make their situation better. let the rich republicans in power slaughter us all.
fuck you. pic.twitter.com/dDd7NUhXFF

Dear Miss Siskind: Behold your own base. And then ask yourself — really ask yourself — which side would you prefer to align with, hmmm?
