There’s a story out today about a hippie couple (I assume they are hippies as they are Occupiers) who, it was found when police raided their apartment for suspected fraud, had been making bombs and collecting weapons. Now, most hippies, hipsters, occupiers, whatever, espouse ideals of peace and love and marijuana smoking and not being a responsible adult. Generally, they don’t plan terrorist attacks or the like, which is why the best way to deal with them is by punching them. You know, because it’s an honest attempt to knock some sense into them and also it’s fun to do for the whole family.
But what happens when hippies get violent and arm themselves? How do you deal with them then? And I’m not talking about an obviously armed hippie that you would simply shoot like any threatening criminal, but when hippies are becoming more armed and dangerous how do you approach the hippie you see on the street? Punch them anyway and take your chances? Leave them alone?
I mean, other than some outliers like the Manson Family and such, hippies have been awfully annoying but mostly harmless. When they are crazed enough about their “cause”, whatever that is, they might just set aside their “morals”, whatever those are, and go on crazy rampages and start bombing Wall Street instead of merely stinking it up.
Like terrorist hippies or something. That’s a pretty scary thought right there. I wonder what a terrorist hippie yells when they pull a trigger instead of “Allah Ackbar!”. Maybe something like “Berkenstocks!”, or maybe “Occupy!” or whatever.
Anyway, I think this is a serious threat to our safety and there should probably be a debate about “hippie control”. Like hippies should all be rounded up into communes or something, for their safety and ours. I mean, they like communes right? We can give them lots of trees to hug. And bears. They love bears and natury stuff they’ve never actually seen. We can give them all kinds of bears to roam around in their peaceful, tree-filled, weapon-free communes. Then they can be happy with each other and do what they want and nobody will complain about the smell.
Except maybe the bears.
