With the election of Donald Trump, the liberals have shone themselves to be unreasonable and downright crazy. The reaction from the left has been everything from petty to insane, but no one took to this lunacy to extremes like an Ohio man. To protest Trump’s election, a distraught liberal actually set himself on fire. Take that Donald Trump!
The Akron Beacon Journal reports that over the weekend a man in a Marine Corps uniform, claiming to be a veteran, had an existential breakdown over Trump beating Hillary Clinton in the presidential election.
The unidentified 69-year-old man (not pictured) walked into a coffee shop in Akron, OH on Saturday morning. Though there had been an anti-Trump protest in the city, the man who hates Trump so much missed it and asked patrons if they knew about any other anti-Trump protests. Nobody in the shop was aware of such a protest, so the man ripped into them loudly and vulgarly about the need to protest the President-elect.
When the staff of the coffee shop asked the belligerent man to please calm down, he threatened them.
I have a f*cking gun, you S.O.B., and I’m not afraid to use it,’ said the man.
No one was sure if the man actually had a gun, but he was terrifying enough that people quickly moved away from him. The man exited the coffee shop and went to protest Donald Trump in his own way.
Around the corner, the man stopped another man and handed him his phone, asking if he would take a photo. The crazy anti-Trump man then retrieved a gas canister from his car and doused himself. He then proceeded to set himself on fire. The other man took off his coat and tried to beat the flames out. Soon other people ran up with fire extinguishers and put the burning man out.
Witnesses say he was curled up in the fetal position, with his clothing burned almost completely off. Paramedics arrived and took him to the hospital with severe burns. The Akron Beacon Journal was not sure if the man survived the self-immolation, but I found another report from KRON that indicates he is still alive.
When Barack Obama was elected and then re-elected I can’t say I was thrilled, but somehow I managed to get on with my life. This liberal hissy fit over Trump’s election is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen. Even if you are a complete idiot and believe the media doom-saying about the impending Trump presidency, the worst possible way to get though the next 4 to 8 years is to burn off all of your skin.
The worst thing Trump is going to do from a leftist standpoint is offend their liberal sensibilities by enforcing our existing immigration laws and creating jobs by rolling back Obama’s silly regulations. The horror of safety and prosperity will be a lot easier for liberals to deal with if they aren’t in the ICU getting skin grafts.
I will give this guy some credit: he’s got more balls (well maybe not now) than all of the big-talking Hollywood celebrities who said they were leaving the country if Trump won the election. While the rich and famous chickened out, this guy showed he is committed to the insane-as-f*ck liberal idealism.
