finally a use for mimes

Anti-Immigrant Video Ruined By Common Street Mimes

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Oh right, there was *another* march on the Capitol yesterday, too. It was about Shamnesty, the Irish-Hispanic effort to have lazy Mexicans steal all the white people’s jobs picking lettuce in Yuma and separating the chicken feet at the poultry-blood factory in Sadness Falls, Iowa.

And the last remaining wingnut to remember Immigration was the thing all wingnuts were so furious about a couple of years ago, he is just trying to make a video EXPOSING these Mexicans walking around as if they have human rights, and these darned mimes just will not let it happen. Mimes! Who ever thought mimes could be funny, except as the butt of jokes or the receiver of random violence? These mimes are awesome, the end. [Thanks to Wonkette operative “Ross M.”]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Joshua Norton

    You said “butt”.

  • Buzz Feedback

    Black security worked over by gals in whiteface. Good times.

  • AxmxZ

    The huge security guy trying to look all serious surrounded by baloons and mimes half his size makes the vid.

  • slithytoves

    Moses holding back a sea of balloons. Cool.

  • Gopherit

    White people won’t pick lettuce. Period.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    They’re taking away that guy’s free speech! What’s next? I won’t be able to march down to my local megachurch during the 11am service and set up my slide show of “Biggest Cocks of Eastern Europe.” Free speech means saying anything, anywhere, anytime, and nobody can try to stop you. The framers would weep if they knew what we’ve done to their Republic.

  • Chickensmack

    couldn’t make it past 55 seconds. Not enough mimes, and too much boring newspaper reporter on TV.

  • american mutt

    Mimes make everything stupid/funny.

  • american mutt

    God, this is why i hate protesting and protesters. They’re assholes on all sides.

  • sati demise

    Intimidation by whistles and balloons? sweet!

  • slappypaddy

    i am at the office so i only got to watch a couple minutes of this — sound down, appropriately enough — and it made my morning. loved the big dark-skinned jesus in the business suit in the background. he finally gave up, “crucify me some other day, these are mimes.”

  • RoscoePColtraine

    [re=536728]american mutt[/re]: Yeah, but come on, when you go behind “enemy lines” to set up and start filming your video diary, and predictably, the throng gathered to demonstrate starts messing with you stuff, are you really going to whine about not having any free speech? Nancy Pelosi could have shown up and taken a right pretty shit on the top of his head, and there wouldn’t have been a free speech issue.

  • user-of-owls

    Ken, these guys (and especially Bogota Mayor Mockus)are even awesomer. Behold, the power of mimes!

  • PabaBritannica

    Why don’t the 25 million unemployed people have a representative? Probably because folks with no money get no representation, and that’s how it should be, because More Money=Better Than.

  • SayItWithWookies

    It’s nice to see the silent majority out in public again.

  • XOhioan

    The mimes were only try to protect conservatives from a very boring, inarticulate man.

  • Prommie

    [re=536740]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: This is why that liberty tree is needing that watering, if you get my drift, heh heh. Sic semper tyrannus, yaknowwaddImean?

  • Oblios Cap

    Now I understand why there is a movement afoot to ban land mimes across the globe.

  • user-of-owls

    [re=536752]Prommie[/re]: Sic semper morannus?

  • One Yield Regular

    Louis Farrakhan looks TERRIBLE.

  • Pithaughn

    [re=536757]Oblios Cap[/re]: Were you Emily Latella in another life?

  • the problem child

    Yeesh, that’s way more mime than I’m comfortable with.

  • kth

    Really disappointing to see Dwyane Wade signed up for such an unworthy cause.

  • weejee

    The mimes should join the pole dancing nuns.

  • Extemporanus

    How does one mime “GREEN BALLOONS”?

  • Oblios Cap


    Geez – a guy uses one “never mind” and people call him Emily Latella for life.

  • bago

    I never knew “the tactics of intimidation” involved mimes.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Enemy Mime

  • user-of-owls

    [re=536772]Extemporanus[/re]: Like this, but with the mute button on:

  • Extemporanus

    [re=536772]Extemporanus[/re]: Nevermind, I just found a great online instructional video.

  • Escape Goat Nation

    I demand that the Mime shown talking on the cell phone has her American Guild of Variety Artists card revoked!
    It’s neither cute nor funny.
    Shields and Yarnell did not get their own TeeVee show by fucking around!

  • Escape Goat Nation


  • GOPCrusher

    I try to be a tolerant person, but mimes just piss me off.

  • yellowdogdem

    [re=536728]american mutt[/re]: Um…protests were kind of effective during the Civil Rights era.

  • TheCoolestGuyInTown

    Yea, if all the illegal immigrants left New York City then the all the white Americans can take those kitchen jobs they’ve been so jealous of.

    Of course I’m being sarcastic because Americans in general in New York do not like manual labor at all. I can say that because I’m white and lived there a long time. White people in New York don’t even like to do their own laundry.

    Also, I have nothing but respect for the people that are willing and able to do manual labor.

  • Voyou Charmant

    I don’t know what this parade supports/is against, but it looks awesome. How much does it cost to enter a float?

  • yellowdogdem

    I love the way guys like this dude always mention that the prayer is going to start in a minute and then launch into hateful comments about immigrants. Very Christian of him, if by “Christian” you mean people who hate anybody who isn’t a white wingnut.

  • WideStance

    My guess is that the blonde transvestite has become part of this guy’s entourage solely to try score some mime action.

  • DC Hates Me

    Nice video of a racist knob getting pwned by a flock of mimes (gaggle, swarm, bevy?).

  • chaste everywhere

    Mimetic desire this ain’t.

    [re=536720]Gopherit[/re]: Their kids will, but only in those ultra-trendy garden plots that thousands of schools are using now in a last-bitch effort to trick anyone over the age of about seven and a half into showing up instead of staying home to smoke the “pot” and play XBox. (The garden plots are also handy for reminding the Tex-Mex/Mexicali kids that even if they make it through high school (unlikely), their most likely future (if the white folks running the garden plots have any say in the matter) remains . . . picking lettuce.)

  • Botswana Meat Commission FC

    I haven’t seen a mime this politically effective since Marcel Morceau annexed those French colonies for his personal sex dungeon.

    Source: new Texas history schoolbooks.

  • Egregious

    For me, the zenith of the video is when the cracker, finding himself surrounded by ballon-wielding, diminutive mimes, complains that he is enduring the politics of intimidation.

    ps-I am going to say this for the first and probably last time…Those mimes kicked ass!

  • TGY

    Nah. The only good mime is a suicide-attack mime.

  • Oblios Cap


    He’s scared of “common” mimes! It makes my fear of clowns seem almost normal. Oompah-Loomahs kind of freak me out, too. That’s why Boner and Charlie Crist bother me.

  • ladymacbeth

    this guy is seriously boring i can’t watch any more.

  • Mr Blifil

    I feel ripped off. Nobody pretended they were in a box or engaged in a tug of war with the air. Painting your face white and holding balloons does not make you a fucking mime. I am sorry however that the security guard thought better of beating the ever-loving shit out of each and every one of them. Because I would have watched that, and then enjoyed the subsequent police action and trials.

  • GoinGreen

    [re=537074]Mr Blifil[/re]: Hey, I’ll grab her tits and you grab her hands – that way she can’t yell! TIMELESS mime humor, and works with deaf humor as well.

    I’ll get my coat.

  • June Cleaver 2.0

    Now that’s how you debate with teabaggers!

  • June Cleaver 2.0

    [re=536728]american mutt[/re]: “God, this is why i hate protesting and protesters. They’re assholes on all sides.”

    That is the perfect way to debate hate. That was funny, AND I got their point.

  • doloras

    In the immortal words of Billy Crystal, “Mime is money”.

  • Booger

    A mime is a terrible thing to waste.

  • tbogg

    Black men hate white people and mimes are about as white as you can get, so this was not unexpected.

  • JooJoo Bee

    Well, I think a man who can be intimidated by mimes has NO BIDNESS representing 25,000,000 unemployed Americans. They need somebody with much, MUCH bigger balls. Nancy Pelosi, maybe.

  • Neoyorquino

    ” . . . steal all the white people’s jobs picking lettuce in Yuma”

    I used to work in local government in Yuma a few years back. Several times a year, the bitters or the olds would start on a rant about how the Mexicans were stealing jobs and damaging the local economy. I would challenge them to put the Mexicans out of business by asking (Mr/Mrs Bitter Old White) to gather their friends en masse and claim those vegetable picking jobs for their own. Just swarm the Dole plant or agricultural concern. No one ever took me up on the idea. On the plus side, it was a guaranteed conversation killer.

  • Apocalyptic Supermarket

    Today we are all free speech abridging mimes.
