    Occupy plantations!

    He seems very angry. I see he’s also starting something he calls the Southern Brotherhood:

    Our symbol is gonna be a pot leaf. Red, Star-and-Bar, red, Star-and-Bar, red. Like the Confederate flag. Yes.

    I’ll pass.

      Some people spend hundreds of pages explaining away the centrality of slavery. I like the fact that this guy just cuts to the chase.

    Another strong argument for gun control, and a dude who obviously missed some crucial American History lessons ( or went to school in the deep South ).

    Case closed!

    his other videos seem as well-thought-out and just as well-argued.

      I hope he eventually puts something out on Reconstruction.

    Wow, Shaggy sure is mad these days. Is Scooby hogging all the weed and Scooby snacks?

    • Andy Hall Mar 9, 2013

      Shaggy never had a dirt bike like Mr. Clements.

      And by “bike,” I mean bicycle.

      As for the weed part, I think I know his brand.

    Obviously done while his parents were at work and he was supposed to be at school.

    I’m trying to figure out who this Joe Dirt is…Surely it isn’t David Spade.

    Guy needs some serious help with his anger issues. Wow!
