This is our favorite guy ever. We had to watch the whole thing just to figure out if he was yelling at the teabaggers “on his side” or at somebody else … and we’ll have to guess “somebody else,” because these RV Living subscribers standing around him sure don’t look like “neo-Marxist pot smokers.” But neither did Timothy Leary. RIP Timothy Leary.

The sign says something about Hitler. Who knows what? This guy is basically the Internet come to life.

But did Sarah Palin somehow become president over the weekend because her “Sarah PAC” got a new website template? THIS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING. Let’s watch some real marijuana addicts get busy:

    And as a pot-smoking neo-Marxist all I can say is "eat shit and die, fuckers. There's a lot more of us than there are of you. I have friends in their 60s & 70s who are like me.

    What are neo-Marxists? What does that even mean? It sounds cool.

    • MadBrahms

      It actually *does* mean something, to us stuffy academics, anyway. It's associated with the New Left and the Frankfurt School. Yes, I realize this means nothing to anyone who doesn't live in an ivory tower.

      But to this guy, I'm guessing it just means soshulist / fascist / muslin / Kenyan.

      • Exactly. He heard Glenn Beck or one of those interchangeable weasels on the nut-radio afternoon shift say "neo-Marxist" a couple of times.

        I would bet the future of capitalism that this loon hasn't wasted any corn-syrup-eatin' time perusing library collections of the New Left Review or Ramparts.

          Naw, it cuts way too much into corn-syrup eating. You don't think those subsidies are gonna pay themselves…

      • Callyson

        Actually, it was more the complete ensemble that frightened me, rather than any one aspect of his attire. As long as you're not combining the hoodie with a cheap American flag wool cap, the neo-grunge look works…

Some people protest funerals, some people program robots to pilot guided missiles into weddings, and still others wear toques with a flag on them and scream nonsense in their fellow dumbasses ears while hoisting a cut-up cardboard box with something about Hitler scrawled on it.

    Neo-Marxism is a sound philosophy and I endorse it 100%.

    I have come to that realization based solely on this video.

  • Fare la Volpe

    Wait, are they anarchists or Neo-Marxists? I thought Marxists believed in a strong centralized state, but according to him these protestors believe in tearing down the entire apparatus of state order. But if they're against the very conception of state control, then wouldn't that make them "conservatives" by the tea party definition? How can he then apply the label of "Marxist" if their platform viz. state power is exactly the same as his? And if one applies a neo-Marxian label to any who stand for unions' rights, then wouldn't that make Ronald Reagan our nation's most prominent Marxist president? How does this gentleman reconcile the cognitive dissonance between his rhetoric and standing political paradigms?

    Oh, he's full of shit? Nevermind.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Dude's screaming at a bunch of 60-year-old union guys and calling them pot-smoking hippie Marxists? And holding a sign that said (I believe) "Unions are Hitler"? Or maybe "Unions is Hitler." Did he just go straight from anti-abortion rallies to politics without learning anything about the subject matter? That's like saying a bullfight is the same as a baseball game because both are watched by screaming fans. Really, dude needs to know what he's talking about before he starts mouthing off. Oh — onions. It might've been "Onions are Hitler." But that's preposterous on the face of it — onions are definitely Alexander the Great.

      my uncle and his old buddies were WWII vets and union members(the blue collar labor sort). I have a feeling in their day- they would have beat the shit out of a guy with a Hitler/Union sign. And the cops in Philly pribbably would have looked the other way.

  • user-of-owls

    I am uncertain how this discourse resolves the central question of the autonomy of states in a capitalist superstructure, though I see the possibility of a genuine Kuhnian paradigm shift arising out of the whistle.

    • MadBrahms

      Nevertheless, I do find his performance to be an exemplary case which clearly demonstrates the colonization of the bourgeois public sphere / lifeworld by the politics of the state.
