Despite what common sense, past experience and any notion of self-preservation would dictate, rowdy protesters still insist on placing themselves in mortal danger by quite literally walking out onto busy streets and highways in a misguided effort to block traffic, as if that helps promote their message in any sort of positive manner (Hint: It doesn’t).
Once again we are seeing angry protesters opposed to President-elect Donald Trump attempting to inconvenience everyone else by blocking traffic, but this time one of them tempted fate a bit too much and was struck down by a passing car.
According to The Daily Caller, the incident was believed to have taken place in California along Interstate 5 near the La Jolla campus of the University of California, San Diego.
Protesters on the side of the busy highway were shouting anti-Trump chants as they moved out into the road, but everything changed after a sickening “thunk” was heard as a passing car struck a female protester along the edge of the crowd.
This of course prompted many screams and shouts for everyone to get out of the road, advice they certainly should have strongly considered before engaging in the live-action version of Frogger, where players don’t generally get an extra life after being flattened by a vehicle.
To be sure, we certainly don’t want to see any protesters getting run over, and we definitely don’t condone any deliberate attempt to plow through a crowd at high speed with an intent to cause harm.
That said, accidents like this can and will continue to happen so long as foolish protesters think it is okay to meander out onto a busy interstate to shout meaningless slogans that won’t change one bit the reality they find so difficult to accept.
Hopefully this protester and her fellow useful idiots took to heart the brutal lesson they just learned about the immutable laws of physics involved in heavily-trafficked roadways and speeding cars. That shouldn’t be too hard, right? I mean, these are predominately college students we are talking about.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter so everyone can see what is likely to happen when morons walk onto a busy highway at night while traffic continues to flow.
