In the latest example of right wing intellectual inferiority, dumb rednecks are now modifying their trucks to destroy the environment as much as they can all because they don't like Obama. You know, because somehow wanting to breath clear air is a liberal attack on freedom. :rolleyes:
I hope these people die slowly of lung cancer. I mean it. Don't bother telling me how "hateful" it is.

Conservatives eager to stick it to Obama and his pro-environment agenda think they have found the perfect way to do it: polluting the air in protest. They’ve begun modifying their trucks to spew out plumes of thick, black smoke with the hope that the smoke negates any benefits to the environment more fuel efficient cars would have done.

People so inclined start by adding huge chimneys and equipment to their diesel trucks in order to “trick” the engine into needing more fuel. The consequence – a giant toxic cloud of smoke thrown into the atmosphere. It’s meant to be an act of defiance against the president and his administration for having the audacity to want to help the environment.

The “art” of ostentatiously polluting with a truck is not new. Trucks with huge exhaust stacks have been around for a long time. The shift has been in how it’s perceived. Rather than just a way to have fun or show off, the practice has increasingly taken a political tone.

Calling themselves “coal rollers” and decaling their cars to read “Prius repellent,” these self-described culture warriors admit to targeting people perceived of as environmentalists, liberals, or even people who buy foreign-made cars.

According to Vocativ:

The ultimate highway enemy, however, are “nature nuffies,” or people who drive hybrid cars, because apparently, pro-earth sentiment is an offense to the diesel-trucking lifestyle. “The feeling around here is that everyone who drives a small car is a liberal,” says Ryan. “I rolled coal on a Prius once just because they were tailing me.”

And the petulant kindergartener mentality continues from some of our esteemed conservative citizens.

If you don't get what you want, kick and scream and throw a tantrum and break **** and then maybe mommy will buy you a new polluting truck for Christmas.

These people are the lowest of the low and are a disgrace to this country. Nothing more than feeble minded cowards, really.

And they wonder why they lost the Presidential election to the black guy. :p

What exactly makes them "conservatives"? Being able to afford a big diesel truck? Why is Obama even mentioned? This just looks like a bunch of morons with nothing better to do. Morons come in all shapes & backgrounds

This has actually been around a looonnnngggg time. Long before Obama even, and it's pretty rare. Search youtube and you'll see vids that go back quite a ways.

Lots of pick-ups in Utah, and seeing one of these smoke spewers is something you might encounter a couple of times a year.

the saddest part is that even if this is satire is is so believable. that's the worst thing to think people would actually do this because of Obama. When satire is as believable as realty then there are some serious problems.

The reason I mention conservatives and Obama is because of this quote from the article, if you bothered to read it....

Apparently, the sellers of coal rolling equipment have taken notice of this nice little bump in sales. They’ve jumped at the chance to sell their products to angry conservatives in the name of anti-liberalism.

Dave Weigel at Slate spoke with a seller who gleefully relayed what a boon Obama has been to his business (for all the wrong reasons):

“I run into a lot of people that really don’t like Obama at all,” the salesperson said. “If he’s into the environment, if he’s into this or that, we’re not. I hear a lot of that. To get a single stack on my truck—that’s my way of giving them the finger. You want clean air and a tiny carbon footprint? Well, screw you.”

OP, please tell me you don't believe this....
Believe what? That people are actually doing this?

This would be like saying people are ricing out their imports to get back at Obama for bailing out American automakers...

But over a decade ago there was this: http://www.riceboypage.com

You know for the amount of people that claim to be enlightened, pot smoking intellectual, academics with leftist inclinations, you'd think gullibility would be in decline.

You mean the stereo type of a bunch of "dumb rednecks are now modifying their trucks to destroy the environment as much as they can all because they don't like Obama"?

Not only a stereotype type, but wishing death on them too...

Big city intellectualism and enlightenment at work I suppose.

Those weren't stereotypes, just an observation based on their behavior. What else would you call someone who does this? Yes, wishing them a self inflicted death caused by their own stupidity. They're not immune to their own pollution.

Please point out my post where I said that, or supported anyone who said that.

Article is as biased as it can be, surprised it doesn't imply the diesel truck was in invented just to piss off Obama :D

So, my question to our conservative members. Are you defending the actions of these people or are you simply offended that they're being called "conservatives"? Always have to find something to disagree with I suppose...

I do hope this is complete garbage. If not I have never seen a more irresponsible and immature way to protest against the government. Like polluting the environment more is going to help or change anything. Chances are it'll just make it worse.

If true, these people get a 0/10 off me.

What stereo type are you referring to then?
The one in your post...I thought that might be clear from the emphasis in the Quote in my post.

Your Quote about which I made the comment...

you are using a brush big enough to paint a house, what makes them conservatives? not offended at all, but it is funny you post an article as biased as say Glenn Beck & somehow believe that this has something to do with Obama :D

you have a better chance at credibility if you replace "conservatives" with "rednecks".

see video in post 4, that "woman" is a moron. no need to say anything else simply because she drives a Prious.

its as true as you wish it to be, this has been going on long before Obama came into the scene, it has NOTHING to do with the government. just a bunch of rednecks having their version of fun.

You keep saying it has nothing to do with Obama, whereas the article states and quotes a store owner who himself says that people are doing it as their way of protesting Obama. You just conveniently keep ignoring it.

I have say, I love how you are always so classy and accepting of people who don't think exactly like you, iBlazed.:rolleyes:
It's not about thinking like me, it's about intentionally hurting the environment, knowing you're polluting the air and going out of your way to modify your car to make it even worse. Completely reckless behavior that put's the lives of many innocent people at risk. It's not about their thinking, it's about their actions. I hope their actions kill them, they would deserve it. If they like "coal rolling" so much, then they will suffer the respiratory consequences of being coal miners.
