I honestly cannot tell if this video is satirical. If it is, then kudos on properly demonstrating the absurdity of the right-wing responses to the brutal attack on Paris last Friday.
But truthfully, my sarcasm alarm did not go off so I’m not sure if this guy is serious or not. Either way, this is probably the craziest video I’ve seen in a long time. I have no idea where to begin with this one except to confess that this would be so much easier to write if the guy in this video were a Southern, conservative saying the same exact thing.
In fairness, I don’t know if he’s from the hood, but when you watch this video you will probably be as confused as I was and laugh as hard as I did.
Between much of his inaudible speech and the appropriately ominous rendition of the Star Spangled Banner playing in the background, I’m not sure if I should laugh, cry, be afraid or feel patriotic.
But so I’m at least consistent with myself, I know I’d criticize the hell out of a loud-mouthed conservative doing the same exact thing and decry how ridiculous it would be for them to ignore the threat that radical Christian militants pose to America while wishfully daydreaming about fighting terrorists abroad.
So, accordingly, I’ll just tell this energetic fella to channel that energy somewhere it will actually be useful. There are plenty of movements that could use your energy — minus the GUNS! Better yet, just stay out-of-the-way and try not to get yourself or someone else killed with those guns that are almost as big as you.
Notwithstanding everything wrong with this video, between the Ric Flair-esque “WOOOOOO” at the end and the closing, “God bless A-mutha-f*ckin-Murica,” this video goes down as one of the craziest confluences of unlikely forces.
Watch “Patriots in the Hood?”[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3couORyX0xY]
