This past Monday was May Day, the high holy day of the godless commie year. Normally, May 1 festivities are limited to countries where socialism is a lot bigger. However, given that Trump’s victory has led to the American left dropping any pretense of not being socialists, it was time for some antifa-ing in the streets this year.
But, God bless ’em, the liberals did what they could — and what they could do was block roads. The left is usually pretty good at this, but in this video posted to YouTube, one truck driver was even better.
According to the uploader, DC Statesman, this video was recorded during a May Day protest in Durham, North Carolina. To be fair, Durham isn’t exactly a hotbed of leftist sentiment, but after managing to rustle up a few politically challenged community college students and some high-visibility orange vests, they decided to block themselves a street. Unfortunately for them, the driver of the Dodge truck was having none of it. He inched through the crowd as these protesters tried to desperately assail the truck and force him to stop. Alas, it was to no avail.
Take a look:
Let me here say I don’t quite grasp this whole blocking-the-road tactic, which doesn’t seem to have any connection to what any of these people are putatively supposed to be protesting. What do they think it’s going to do?
Has any driver caught in one of these antifa-created traffic jams thought to themselves, “Oh, now I get it! They’re blocking this intersection because they want to drive home the necessity of intersectionality in a post-capitalist America! I’m going to turn around and go to that ‘revolutionary’ bookstore downtown which smells like pot, mold, and worthless postgraduate degrees, and I’m going to buy a copy of bell hooks’ ‘Teaching to Transgress!’”
You know, that’s actually a better rationalization than I’ve ever heard any of these erudite individuals give. I probably should have asked for royalties.
