Too bad they’re not in North Dakota, where they would be free to kill each other via fender benders.

That video is a couple years old but still a fun watch. I hadn’t heard the convoy had anything to do with MLK Day but it wouldn’t surprise me.

ETA: Video appears to date to June 2015, not related to MLK day.

Can’t help but to think of this depiction:

Stupid racists.


#5

I’ve seen this before – not from today. It still ends in an accident though.


#6

Believe this wasn’t today. Not sure, but I think this is the aftermath or something to do with a Trump rally this past summer in Massachusetts.


#7

Yes, this appeared on boingboing a few years ago, and was related to the push to remove the confederate flag from being flown on state property.


#8

Can’t hope helping these proud defenders of States’ Rights and promoters of Individual Freedom were striking a blow for Freedom by defying mandatory seat belt laws and disabling their air bags.

What? No one ‘rolling coal’? Amateurs!


#10

How big a laser would you need to melt the head off of a statue of a Confederate general?

Academic question. Asking for a friend.


#11

Couple pounds of thermite would be easier to use than a laser. Not as much fun, though.


#12

Never a good idea to be a racist AND a nimrod.


#13

So they’re not learning from history.


#14

On which days do they fly those flags proudly, and on which days do they remind everyone that historically it was the Democrats who flew those flags? Is there an app I can get for that?


#15

Ah… Dalton GA… making Rome GA feel superior since … I guess the 1850s?


#16

The south will rise again…

Y’all!


#17

Queda.


#18

“dilla”

, Arma?

Stop it, before someone gets hurt.
