Re: Your Poor, Put-Upon Friends
You admit to being friends of the people who, last weekend, decided of their own idiot free will to throw water balloons and super soakers have a pedal pub in downtown Minneapolis.
And then do it again.
Because they just don’t like pedal pubs.
And now they’re trying to set themselves up as Rodney King because they were stupid enough to squirt a pedal pub full of off-duty cops, who proceeded to take them down.
You said they – your friends – are “loveable goofballs”.
No. They’re self-absorbed narcissists.
And if it hadn’t been their idiot luck to spray off-duty cops, but just a bunch of ironworkers or bouncers or big guys, they wouldn’t be able to wrap the just consequences of their stupidity in this year’s white-liberal-guilt-fest.
And…they were angry at pedal pubs? Talk about white privilege.
That is all.
