Almost everyone in this video is some sort of aged, paranoid baby-boomer.
yah seriously. baby boomers had it fucking easy; they coasted on the hard work of the generations before. then when shit hits the fan, when they were asleep at the proverbial wheel, they try and fix it by overreacting. and i agree with roachbud.
i can't wait for a some phd student in anthropology to publish something about that.
george carlin has a great bit about. its the last 6:10 of his 'back in town' cd and or live show.
found the transcript of the good part:
CARLIN: Something else I'm a little tired of hearing about, the baby boomers. Whiny, narcissistic, self-indulgent people with a simple philosophy: "Give me it. It's mine. Give me that. It's mine."
These people were given everything. Everything was handed to them. And they took it all, took it all: sex, drugs and rock'n'roll. And they stayed loaded for 20 years and had a free ride. But now they're staring down the barrel of middle-age burnout and they don't like it. They don't like. So they turn self-righteous and they want to make things hard on younger people.
They tell them abstain from sex, say no to drugs. As for the rock'n'roll, they sold that for television commercials a long time ago so they could buy pasta machines and Stair Masters and soybean futures. Soybean futures.

-1 star for other countries criticizing us for problems they have too. See Romper Stomper.

Same thing was done by DC Radio host Jerry Klein, pretending to seriously suggest making Muslims wear armbands with a crescent and special tattoo. He got a lot of supportive callers.

Not nazis, but many on the religious right are indeed fascists.

I wanted this segment to last much, much longer.

Interesting though depressing experiment. And honestly not very surprising.
I hesitate to ask...is it coincidence that they all seem to have Southern accents?

-5 because it's really easy to create videos full of meatheads saying meathead things, but +10 for pork spray. If that stuff was real, I'd never leave the kitchen.
