Paul Ryan did a campaign stop at a state fair in Des Moines, Iowa yesterday during which he was bombarded with comments like “STOP THE WAR ON THE MIDDLE CLASS!” The dissidents were dragged out by several enthusiastic looking cops.
His supporters tried to shout down the hecklers with a rousing chorus of “USA USA USA”. I guess it’s all they could think of on short notice.
One can’t help but think of Ed Farhat, AKA “The Sheik“. He was a character in the National Wrestling Alliance back in the days when we hated Iran the first time after they threw out the Shah.
Whenever he would come into the ring, the crowd would always chant “USA USA USA” Nothing like a fake Sheik to make Americans feel good about themselves (while they actually love the real sheiks in Saudi Arabia and Qatar)
The fake “left vs right” WWE roadshow we call politics in this country has the population so dumbed down they can’t tell if they’re at a political rally or a wrestling match.
I think it’s kind of funny in a depressing sort of “let’s get the fuck out of this place” kinda way.
