“Populist left” YouTuber Kyle Kulinski gave the interwebs a good laugh over the weekend when he commented on the appearance of the American Midwest and admitted he…well, didn’t know what farms looked like.
Kulinski, an American political commentator, co-founder of Justice Democrats, and host of The Kyle Kulinski Show on the Young Turks' "Secular Talk" channel, posted a photo of the Colorado-Kansas border from his view on a plane, seemingly mystified by the grid-like structure of farmland.
“This is land by the Colorado, Kansas border from a plane,” Kulinski tweeted. “Pretty cool. I have no idea how [or] why it looks like this.”

After having a pretty hearty chuckle over a “populist left” web show host getting stymied by an aerial view of some fields, Twitter users were quick to fill in Kulinski’s knowledge gaps.

Guy who has a Green New Deal pinned tweet has no clue what agriculture is or how middle America economics work.— Benny (@bennyjohnson) November 4, 2019
Makes perfect sense
It's art. People living out in the middle of the country have nothing better to do with their time, so they sculpt the land into shapes like this.— Arnorian Matt 🇺🇸🇻🇦 (@MattOfArnor) November 3, 2019
But perhaps of all the sarcastic, annoyed, or otherwise scornful comments mocking Kulinski’s confusion over farmland, perhaps this one hit the nail most squarely on the head.
