Conservatives Purposely Making Cars Spew Black Smoke

Pickup trucks customized to spew black smoke into the air are quickly becoming the newest weapon in the culture wars.

“Coal Rollers” are diesel trucks modified with chimneys and equipment that can force extra fuel into the engine causing dark black smoke to pour out of the chimney stacks. These modifications are not new, but as Slate’s Dave Weigel pointed out on Thursday, “rolling coal” has begun to take on a political dimension with pickup drivers increasingly viewing their smokestacks as a form of protest against environmentalists and Obama administration emissions regulations.

So, out of sheer spite and stupidity, these folks are lowering their mpg and polluting their air at us simply because we care about it?

They should know that I hate people giving me money and I’m totally against blow jobs.

  1. Progressives usually think you can reason with human beings, but you can’t with these grown-up children. (I say this with deep respect.) They are fun-loving guys with many good qualities. They have lots of money combined with poor impulse control and above all they love being told what to do by clever people so they can hate them loudly and self-righteously.

    Annoying liberals on one side or annoying rednecks on the other is a sporting contest that both teams will pay to encourage. It drives the political and media tribes wild with greed.

    Sadly, I can’t see a bridge for this divide. It’s a shame that everything gets trampled in the process.

  2. I don’t see any difference in this and the House Republican announcing they’ll oppose Obama irregardless of the damage to the US.

  3. Perhaps Obama should very publicly open and support a suicide prevention center?

  4. @Desiato: Good article, btw. It does miss the element of fun though. IMO, both sidea seriously enjoy their fulminations and grumbling.

  5. The main effect they will achieve with this childish behaviour will be to further lower the already low life expectancy in redneck county(the southern states life expectancy is 6 years below New England, “vegetables are for sissies, we are more steak and potatoes here”). They obviously want to add lung cancer and respiratory problems.

  6. @steffen: Perhaps, although their birth rate should be higher what with the attitude to contraception and abortion. Notoriously poor health and pre-natal care will result in more babies with mental and physical disabilities…

  7. “…more babies with mental and physical disabilities…”

    or future voters as they will be known.

    And so it goes on, round and round in ever-decreasing circles, until it goes down the plug-hole.

  8. @porpentine: If it weren’t for the complaining I’d really enjoy my life 🙂
