Memeday: If Donald Trump offers you a free helicopter ride, say no

As you'll see, the real Trump Helicopter Ride memes get a lot uglier than this
As you’ll see, the real Trump Helicopter Ride memes get a lot uglier than this

So I made a little mistake in my post yesterday. After quoting one Trump fan’s tweet celebrating the murder of British Labour MP Jo Cox, I noted that the same Trump fan had also suggested that a writer for Vox be treated to a “TRUMP HELICOPTER RIDE.”

I took this to be a reference to a famous scene in the film Scarface in which a man is thrown to his death from a helicopter. But, as several commenters informed me, it was far more likely to have been a reference to Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet’s practice of murdering people by throwing them from helicopters into the ocean.

Indeed, as I discovered when I looked into it further, “Pinochet helicopter rides” have become a popular meme amongst Alt Right Anime Nazis and their fellow travelers on the far right; the notion of murdering leftists by tossing them from helicopters is apparently irresistably hilarious to this particular demographic.

Since most of those in this lovely demographic also adore Donald Trump, the Pinochet Helicopter Ride meme has morphed easily into the Trump Helicopter ride meme. (It probably didn’t hurt that early in his campaign Trump actually did give helicopter rides to children at the Iowa State Fair; hopefully all of the children were returned to their parents intact.)

So for today’s Memeday, let’s take a look at the Pinochet Helicopter Ride meme as it has transformed into the Trump Helicopter Ride Meme. (Each meme links to the site where I found it.)

Let’s start with Pure Pinochet:

pino1

And now we see the meme mutating towards Trump. Yep, that’s Bernie Sanders getting tossed to his death.

pino2

Then Pinochet becomes Trump, with Bernie still in the role of victim — presumably because of the clashes between Trump fans and protesters, whom Trump fans assumed were all Bernie supporters. And possibly because he’s Jewish.

Here cartoon versions of a couple of Trump protesters — I’ve crossed out their faces, because they never asked to become memes — get tossed to their cartoon deaths by a Trump-loving Pusheen the Cat.

With Hillary Clinton now the presumptive Democratic nominee, she’s replaced Bernie as the favorite victim.

hillaryheicopter

One inventive soul even made a little video — making use of the scene from Scarface I thought was the inspiration for this meme. Since it won’t embed, you’ll have to go here to see it.

Trump’s humiliating defeat in the general election really can’t come too soon.

In the meantime, here’s a somewhat less repugnant Trump meme.

Ok, it’s still a bit repugnant. But at least it doesn’t involve graphic fantasies of murder.

More Trump memes to come.

Every meme about Mump should be saved and rubbed in his supporters’ faces when he loses.

And yet other Trump supporters get super offended when you say their movement is ideologically fascist.

It’s a terrifying time for the United States.

I genuinely worry what will happen after the election. I sincerely hope Trump doesn’t win, but either way I almost expect at least one of his more hateful supporters to do something awful. Jo Cox’s murder which does seem to be motivated by far-right racism is a terrible reminder of what people are willing to do to serve their ideology.

Yes, Trump losing isn’t the end of the story. He’s shown that a Hitler-lite has a chance of ending up in the White House. What happens if, next time, the candidate is a competent demagogue?

They think the man who got bored of talking to his donors on the phone is going to be president?

Good grief, he’s more of a quitter than Palin!

When I hear about the Alt-Right Anime Nazis, I have to consciously remind myself that they’re intentionally trying to shock and offend. That makes it a little better.

Then I end up reminding myself that they still actually believe this stuff, too. That makes it a little worse again.

Yeah the folks at The Right Stuff use the helicopter meme a lot, and it might have originated there. At one point they even sold t-shirts of it.

At least they have their hideous priorities straight: only turn on the gentile woman after the commie Jew is outta the race. *Blergh*
And quit using Pusheen for your bigotry and murder fantasies! She’s too cuddly and wonderful for that!

Just as anime had gained some measure of respectability these chucklefucks have set it back to where it was in the early 90’s where people thought it was all demon rape and lolicon. And hands off Pusheen! What next? Hello Kitty?!

It’s rather disturbing that the Alt Right seems to think if Trump is elected. They can do what they want and hurt or kill who they want. How many memes have we seen where they show Trump murdering someone they don’t like and how many memes have they destroyed or ruined. It shows how sick they are

I’m reminded of a scene in Batman: Arkham City.

Joker tough talks about kicking Batman’s ass, so you the player have to fight him. Then Batman hands Joker’s ass to him in under ten seconds. So Joker has to bring in fifty more guys to even the fight.

That’s these clowns posting these memes. Except instead of fifty guys to even the fight, these idiots plaster fascist memes all over an invention that was created by a woman during the cold war. In fact they’re sitting there enjoying an invention created and nurtured by the women, the people they hate so much.

And I bet it drives them out of their little skulls,

If anyone of them stepped out of their bubble for a second, they’d have their ass handed to them in ten seconds flat, on a good day.

These crusty assholes think that they’re going to be exempt from one-way helicopter rides.

Really, jackass? Really?

It isn’t only People You Don’t Like that’ll be subject to the fulfillment of your little wank fantasies. You step out of line, you talk too much, you show too much ambition, you show too little ambition, your Great Leader or one of his flunkies has a bad prostate day and wants to take it out on someone, you could be next proving gravity works.

Then again, thinking things through was never the strong suit of these jokers.

@Dan Kasteray: This is going to be an odd experience for me, but I’m actually going to defend the Joker here.

The Joker wouldn’t have anything to do with these chucklefucks for one simple reason: He hates Nazis.

(This means that THE FUCKING JOKER, the worst villain in Gotham City, the villain that beats his girlfriend, the villain that murders people just for the fucking lulz, can now claim moral high ground over CAPTAIN FUCKING AMERICA.)

Off-topic, but I just learned that Roosh published a new book, Free Speech Isn’t Free, and I don’t know if that’s been mentioned here before. Apparently this book claims how Roosh needed bodyguards in Toronto, he has his own spy network, he has people infiltrating social justice groups to inform him of their secrets (because reading blogs is so cloak and dagger!), and generally whining about how oppressed he is. It’s also full of ridiculous conspiracy theories on how LGBTQ pride and birth control are nefarious and counter-intuitive depopulation plots. Sounds like a real winner here.

I also just discovered that there’s a TV Tropes page for Karen Straughan. I shouldn’t be surprised given the libertarian presense on TV Tropes but it still took my appetite away. The “awesome moments” page is particularly puke-inducing.

Admirers of Pinochet feel very, very weak inside; adulation of a dictator is compensation for that inner frailty.

I notice that Pinochet fans don’t draw any cartoons about the following:

Wikipedia, “Pinochet”

Pinochet was arrested under an international arrest warrant on a visit to London on 10 October 1998 in connection with numerous human rights violations. Following a legal battle he was released on grounds of ill-health, and returned to Chile in March 2000. In 2004, Chilean Judge Juan Guzmán Tapia ruled that Pinochet was medically fit to stand trial and placed him under house arrest. By the time of his death on 10 December 2006, about 300 criminal charges were still pending against him in Chile for numerous human rights violations during his 17-year rule, and tax evasion and embezzlement during and after his rule; he was accused of having corruptly amassed at least US$28 million.

No, Pinochet fans aren’t interested in the old man hounded by the law as he lay dying. They need to see a strongman throwing everyday people out of helicopters in order to boost their own feeble egos.

Pusheen’s helicopter is part of the sticker set supporting the World Food Programme, so that makes this use of the image even more insulting and disgusting.

Really now, if you cant by this point realise what a ride the left is you absolutely deserve the consequences it will bring you. Only left winger bufoons would place a known liar, international criminal and psychopath in charge of their country because of their programmed modern fear of masculinity. The sharticles like this one pop up and you follow it like mindless gnats. It must be so much effort to actually investigate the things you believe mustnt it? Attack Trump but pretend Hillary is some kind of force for righteousness. HILLARY IS THE WORST POSSIBLE OUTCOME. go and do some fact checking and pull your rooted heads from out of your dark, cavernous arseholes.

You dont realise how better off the world would be without your low-iq descisions fucking it up for everyone. I HOPE the helicopter rides do begin soon, as there are only too many befitting of the opportunit.

Why dont you talk about the CFR? About Libya? About the girls who were sexually assaulted by Bill and then threatened by Hillary when she knew he was guilty. Your belief system if a farce. Your champions will cut your own throat to get their way
Might as well wake up and smell the bs you thought was coffe because thats what you were told in your hazy awareness of reality.

Because Virgin Mary, most things dont warrant a response because theyre stupid. Trump is not a trigger fairy like the rest of you who feel that every action you witness requires your participation. But go on, keep turning mole hills into mountains. That sure will keep the spotlight off Hillary and her foul, underhanded history. Then you can all pretend youre doing the right thing haha.

In my defense, Trump DID lose the popular vote.

I know I’m sounding like a broken record at this point but Donald Dump isn’t in the White House yet, and the electoral college could pull their collective heads out of their sphincters and elect Clinton.

No please, continue to hammer this point, it’s one of few vestiges of hope I can cling onto.

If nazis, russian red scare & the destruction of environments and those who depend on those environments doesn’t make them think “maybe we should instead vote to in Hillary instead of doing a repeat of Bush”, nothing will. I want to believe so badly that in the wake of blatant fascism, their consciences will make them, or at least enough of them, to vote in Hillary.

Then we can all breath a sigh of relief of just barely dodging that bullet. Please gods of alll religions and people of the world, can you please just let me have this?
