Diesel drivers in rural America spend thousands on truck modification, to spew out black soot and fumes on pedestrians and other drivers.
The intersection of Dominator Culture, rabid anti-environmentalism, sadism and stupidity has over 16,000 young "men" who poison the future and other people for laughs. They post videos to brag about assaulting people this way.
An entire subculture has emerged on the Internet surrounding this soot-spewing pastime—where self-declared rednecks gather on Facebook pages (16,000 collective followers) Tumblers and Instagram (156,714 posts) to share photos and videos of their Dodge Rams and GM Silverados purposefully poisoning the sky.
Those bullies should be sentenced to breathe their own exhaust for 24 hours!
(I also don't understand why such vehicles, assaulting the health of their fellow road users and residents, are allowed on the roads.)
I saw a car ´burn-out´ on tv: the stupid driver was running the engine full speed and braking at the same time, so the car stayed in one place and made an enormous noise and stink. Must be the same sort of people.
I found another article and video at HuffPost (Political Protest Or Just Blowing Smoke? Anti-Environmentalists Are Now 'Rolling Coal'). More footage of jerks intentionally blasting pedestrians and bicyclists with their sooty pollution.
On the motivation for what these guys call "Prius repellent":
“I run into a lot of people that really don’t like Obama at all.... If he’s into the environment, if he’s into this or that, we’re not. I hear a lot of that.... You want clean air and a tiny carbon footprint? Well, screw you.”
Ruth, I can't add anything to your apt characterization of "the intersection of Dominator Culture, rabid anti-environmentalism, sadism and stupidity"!
Such juvenile, idiotic, irresponsible, immature, hedonistic, adolescent, moronic, sophomoric, mentally retarded, foolish behavior has no place on my respect list. Frankly, I feel pure disgust. I want no one around me who is so callous about poisoning the air we breath.
