Crazy YouTube of the Day

My favorite part — besides the sword prop — is when he says, “I’ll just leave you with that” at the 2:31 mark, and then goes on to repeat himself over and over for another three whole minutes.

As I watch this guy, I’m thinking about how I spent my day (my birthday, mind you) at work helping my community prepare for the arrival of hurricane Ike. Because so many of our co-workers evacuated with their children (as per usual), our crew this day was 50% gay workers. But yea, “take! take! take!” that’s all we do…

I don’t know who he is, or what his problem might be ….. I pray that his future and his children have a better heart than than he displays on this video.

Did this guy just go through his enrollment at exidus int. or something?

Or is this what happens when you put whiskey on your corn flakes?

“Think about the possibilities of a single child.

“And they take so many of those single childs, and they’re never even born.

“Think about what they take from the dreams of future!”

What the devil does that even mean? Is future an entity? (It almost sounds like it the way he uses it.) But I suppose my mistake lies in trying to even extract comprehensible meaning from this.

(Also nice pluralization of child.)

(And I must say, he does look much more “butch” in this video than in the last one. Maybe that’s what’s with the sword and the….vest? Suit jacket with the sleeves ripped off? Thingie that sort of covers his torso?)

As a redneck once said to me: If you’re not here to reproduce, WTF are you here for?

He’s drunk. Listen to him slur his words. That’s not poor audio quality doing it. It’s excessive alcohol. That also would explain his incessant repetition, as well.

Have any of you seen “Idiocracy,” that movie by Mike Judge, the creator of “Beavis and Butthead” and “Office Space?” It’s about this Army clerk, played by Luke Wilson, who is frozen in an experiment for 500 years, and then wakes up in a world where everybody is stupid.

Watching this video, I have to wonder if “Idiocracy” is really fiction…

Ben in Oakland,

You should have responded to the redneck guy by saying, “I’m here to do things in my life that require more brain cells than breeding.”

Weren’t there reports concluding that same-sex marriage would add millions of dollars to the economy in California. Yep, that’s right, man. We just take take take!

“If you’re not here to reproduce, WTF are you here for?”

This reminds me of a woman I heard on the radio some time ago talking about her desire to reproduce, adding “After all, that’s what we’re here for, isn’t it?”

The idea that reproducing is THE purpose of our existence in this world is a very strange one. If people are not valuable simply as people, quite irrespective of their ability or inclination to reproduce, then what virtue can there possibly be in producing more of them?

I have a few relatives who have been “unable to produce” for medical reasons. Placing value on one’s reproductive capabilities is indeed very dehumanizing. We’re talking about people, not livestock.

Let’s see: I have 2 cousins that have at least 5 kids between them(I lost count) out of wedlock. One of them is about to lose her two kids because the fathers want to keep them away from the rapist/abuser looser she married. Only one mother has finished high school, neither has been to college, and only one of them is currently employed.
Meanwhile my disease-free, happily partnered gay ass has a bachelor’s degree, and been employed consistently since before I graduated college.

and I’m the one taking away from the world? Please.

If your only purpose in life is to make babies, then you must be a pretty shallow person. Also, if people are not valuable simply as people, doesn’t that kind of detract from the religious right’s stance on abortion, that “every sperm is sacred,” as Monty Python would put it? If a baby is born unable to reproduce later in life, then should that baby be born at all?

I’m still laughing over these.

Video cameras shouldn’t be sold to individuals without a proper shooting license.

A very creepy man! I think he’s uber gay inside and has to overcompensate with machismo and homohate speech to make himself look super straight.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we see him on the news shooting up some UU church or LGBT center or gay bashing.

This video serves as a perfect example of why we all need a CCW permit. To protect ourselves and our loved ones from hate mongers like this beast.

Eddie, I don’t know, man.

More than a few of my family members have almost ended up dead because of guns in the house. We’re a clumsy and somewhat hot tempered lot.

Both my mother and I have suffered from clinical depression, and if either of us had easy access to a firearm, most likely we wouldn’t be here.

I’m a gay man, but was married (yes to a woman) and now am a single parent (and foster parent).
Gays actually often reproduce. It might be less frequently if it were ok for gays to marry, but I suspect a lot of folks don’t come to terms with their sexuality until after they have kids.
I was almost 40 before I could make “I’m gay” come out of my mouth. I suspect my kids generation will not be as hung up.

And looking at the demographic data, the world is by no means suffering from a deficit of babies. Quite the opposite.

He may be drunk (or stoned or something) in this video, but he keeps the same ideology in replies to comments on his video. So it’s not just the liquor. I couldn’t watch the whole thing. He kept swinging that stupid sword around. Freaked me out.
