Socialism Metaphor Alert: Anti-Trump protester backflips, lands on head

READER POLL – Does he at least get a Participation Award?

Rebel Pundit (aka Jeremy Segal) and Andrew Marcus have filmed some great videos of anti-Trump protesters.

They filmed Bill Ayers and other wack jobs at the Chicago protest to shut down the Trump rally. The blond woman screaming about white male privilege is a haunting image of post-intellectual America.

Language Warning

Rebel Pundit also captured the teenager pepper-sprayed seconds after she punched someone in the face.

This video, though, may be my favorite.

An anti-Trump protester, after spewing profanity, does a back flip — and lands on his head.

But that’s not even the best part.

He then claims that’s what he intended to do.  This is a profound metaphor for the Socialist Democratic Party of America.

Language Warning

What do you think, does he at least get a Participation Award?

Yikes. The crazy lady must be Cherokee, not white, I guess.

The pavement oppressed him.

Yikes. Isn’t the word “liberal” supposed to invoke images of tolerance of other opinions. Similarly, are not progressives supposed to be all about encouraging individual self-expression*.

These “progressive” seem to be more Neanderthal in nature, as are most I’ve met, and as such intolerant of any view other than their own.

*Merriam Webster:
c. of, relating to, or constituting an educational theory marked by emphasis on the individual child, informality of classroom procedure, and encouragement of self-expression

He’s wearing shooter’s glasses.

I wonder if those are tequila shooters in his case…

Oooohh, I smell Presidential material!

If the FBI ever gets around to taking care of Hillary!, the Dems may need a new non-Berniesque candidate, and this guy could be it … I hope the talent scouts were watching.

At least he landed on something that wouldn’t damage him.

That vile wretch is miserable to her very core. I suspect that a genie with unlimited wishes couldn’t satisfy that woman’s hatred.

Are Republicans any smarter?
I listened to the first segment of Rush today.
He basically came out and said that the GOPe is planning on kicking out both Trump and Cruz and installing their own candidate. He then very broadly implied that we need to support whoever the GOPe picks. Yeah sure.

Unless Trump leaves and becomes a third party candidate, get ready for President Hillary.

    Our household has stopped listening to Rush.

      i’ve never understood the lure of talk radio… “shut up and play music” is my motto.

      His program has become a more or less continuous advertisement for his books – which I suspect are ghost-written; his teas; and Apple products.

    Rush Limbaugh has been exploring all of the possible scenarios for awhile now and this is just one of many he’s talked about lately, although he really seems to be warming up to this one. The ghost candidate theory takes awhile for him to explain, but he’s cagey enough to repeatedly claim he knows nothing for sure and it’s just educated speculation on his part. That may or may not be true, but at one point or another during this primary season he’s been accused of being in each and every candidate’s pocket simply because he points out each candidate’s pros and cons as things have unfolded. If you catch just short segments of any given show it’s easy to come away with the idea that he has a favorite candidate. Who he skewers varies by the day. Listen long enough and you’ll realize he hasn’t been happy with any of them since Scott Walker… and you know where that went.

    Limbaugh’s insistence upon a strict conservative doctrine means everybody and everything that doesn’t measure up becomes fodder for his show. This political cycle is probably the most target rich environment he’s even seen, so of course he’s going to use it for maximum effect. Most recently his favorite target has been the infamous, nebulous, faceless GOP elites whom he alternately describes as being either omnipotent or feckless and weak, depending upon the day of the week and the argument he’s putting forth at the moment.

    The guy is a very good entertainer and makes a fortune doing it, but is by no means a political power broker. His loyalty is reserved for the purely conservative candidate who has yet to be born.

      Henry Hawkins in reply to Merlin. | April 1, 2016 at 3:38 pm

      Rush Limbaugh speaking about Ted Cruz:

      “If conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz,” Limbaugh said on the radio. “Because you are exactly — this is the closest in our lifetime we have ever been to Ronald Reagan, in terms of doctrinaire, understandable, articulated, implementable conservatism.”

Loved the unhinged backflipper!

He reminds me of a certain commenter here, who is equally unhinged when it comes to Donald Trump… nah, it couldn’t be… could it? 😉

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Eskyman. | April 1, 2016 at 3:25 pm

    I didn’t view the video, so don’t know what the back-flipper said. If he shouted “you lying sack of sh!t”, you guessed right.

Henry Hawkins | April 1, 2016 at 2:39 pm

Luckily Johnny Backflip landed on his head where no vital organs are located.

Gravity is racist or something.

They flip for intrinsic value that they don’t believe, and lose their dignity falling on their head.

A cautionary tale of pro-choice or selective first principles and the first-order causative force applied equally.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | April 1, 2016 at 4:11 pm

That HAD to hurt. Pretending it didn’t is impressive. But his goal was to be a disruptive azz so he deserves no sympathy.

I’m more worried about the concrete. I hope it is ok.

When I lament the lost productivity from me being a political news junkie, I only need to watch this video to gain perspective.

What’s the big deal? Landing on his head? Its not like these Sanders supporters have any vital organs in their head.

Karl Rove: ‘Fresh face’ might be best GOP nominee

Keep burying your head in the sand and ignoring the obvious. Cause Graham and Bush just looooove Ted Cruz.

Obvious GOPe Strategy

1) Use Cruz to block Trump from first ballot victory
2) Knife Cruz in back and dump him
3) Bring in GOPe “Unity Candidate” and nominate them by manipulating the rules

    Henry Hawkins in reply to DaMav. | April 1, 2016 at 6:10 pm

    I could envision a scenario where the brilliant strategists of the GOPe find themselves somehow outsmarted by Ted Cruz. Or practically anyone else, including Scooby Doo.

    In an open convention, he/she who’s done their homework with delegates takes the prize.

Chuck Norris would get my vote.

“I meant to do that ”
Reminds me of a cat when it gets caught doing something stupid.
