Not much of a fight, really. Anytime you can walk away...
More of a show of who’s boss, kinda reminded me of 8th grade out behind the bleachers.

Yes, Austin has been overrun by them. There is even a place on Lake Travis called Hippie Hollow.

When the EPA makes Hippies a protected species because of their limited range, we will be in serious trouble in and around Austin. And they will continue expanding out to Spiceweird, er, maybe that is Spicewood, where the king of the hippies—Willie Nelson—lives.

I just see more jackasses that should be shot.

But will be protected because they are the right group.

The odds were obvious. The hippies look like the type that
most likely wouldn’t have a CC permit and packing heat. The
cowards knew the odds against it and took advantage. I
could have walked right by the punks and they wouldn’t
have said a word.

True. If those hippies weren't willing and able to kill every one of those feral animals, they should have been running.

I grew up in the Inagodadavida 60’s hippie era. I never
liked those “Make love not war, share the land” types.
Even when I had long hair and played in heavy metal bands
in the 80”s I still made fun of them. As far as setting
themselves on fire, well some did. Like when they were
huffing gas fumes from a gas tank and then try to light
a cigarette. Today those same people are running the country.
Sad.

Is that sarcasm? Because I really can't tell.

I live in Austin, and it sucks! I can't stand it! The only good things about Austin are the winters, and the golf courses.

And before someone says move, I can't - my wife is divorced, and her divorce agreement stipulates that she must stay in Austin. I just hope that after the kids finish college they don't want to live in Austin.

My main gripe is how self righteous all the liberals here are. They really are intolerable.

Long hair doesn’t make a hippie.

How do we know they weren’t metal heads?

Pepper spray. Even a hippy peacenik should agree non lethal pepper spray is moral. I guarantee one little can would have turned the tables here.

A gun would have been even better.

Hippie Hollow has been around forever. Austin is infested with Hippies. It’s a good hunting ground for Street Thugs.

Outside of the Austin city limits, the Street Thugs maintain a very low profile. Not many Hippies to whoop up on. They are more likely to encounter cowboys, rednecks or just good old oil field trash and that could hurt... a lot.

Hippies are the second favorite target, right after the emos. Emos usually have money, hippies only have dope. And stuff.

Cowboys and oilfield roughnecks are not to be messed with. Even in Houston or San Antonio. Honest, fellows.

Someone already asked that question so I didn’t bother!

Either way, even I don’t see why a “hippie” had to be beaten up.

If it’s east of I-35 and in the dark of a.m., then, yeah, you need to be doubly vigilant if you’re on foot. And it’s been as chilly as it ever gets down here lately. Folks out and about that late might start a fight to warm themselves up!

The word “thug” in reference to blacks acting like rabid animals, is the new N word, and these thugs are like wild dogs running in packs. They should be picked up, taken to the pound where they can be gassed, burned, and disposed of at a landfill.

Makes my blood boil. That said, those long-haired guys — hippies or otherwise — had no idea how to fight. Any moderately good martial artist or boxer could easily have had those six guys comatose in short order, even without a gun.

No, it’s not right for folks to jump others like that. But folks should do themselves a favor and be long abed by 0-dark-30. If not, have a plan, move with a purpose, and avoid contact.

“When you’ve seen Austin, you’ve seen heaven.”

Come to Austin, I’ll convince you otherwise. We can start on 6th Street and Congress at 8 AM. I’ll give you a tour of all the local parks, park benches, pavilions and alleyways. You will think you are in some hell hole in Turdistan. It’s a Stench-Hippie sanctuary.

Hows that Tex? Did ya watch the video?

It was like 4 against each guy...Did ya miss the part where several of your Texas ghetto criminals were kicking the one guy in the head while he was DOWN, then looted his pockets?

And you side with them?

In another few years, these little little criminals will be shooting clerks to death for a few buck at your local greedymart.

Nice neighborhood ya got there.

This is not a typical fight. It appears that the two long hairs instigated it. They also keep circling around trying to get back into the fight. Note: putting up their fists in fighting stances.

The real character to watch is the short guy with a beard and a satchel over his shoulder. At the start, he throws up his hands in a frustrated gesture, and yet stays on the periphery of the fight.

Hippies? They looked like they walked off the set of Duck Dynasty, and I certainly wouldn’t call Phil, Jase, or Willie a “hippy” based upon their looks. The really sad part is that these two guys should have been able to kick the a$$ of all six of the black guys if they had learned to fight when they were boys. The blacks were throwing punches like girls and yet the white guys reacted defensively, rather than violently attacking and going for a quick knockout.

Yeah, the looked like Duck Dynasty types.

Apparently some people in Texas think the Duck guys are hippies too.

Anyone else here support street gang types totally outnumbering and assaulting people like a pack of dogs?

Naturally. That is SOP for the Obama Voter Thugs. Rarely, if ever will you see these turds that want to go “Mano y Mano”. A 3 to 1 ratio (or more) is better suited to their speed. I can’t tell you just how many times (a couple, first hand) that I have seen this to be true. :-)

This video should be a MUST WATCH for anyone who would put themselves in harm’s way.

The longhairs did many things wrong, which any man here who has studied combat, the fighting arts, or even been in a simple one-on-one fistfight would recognize.

BTW, it didn’t “appear” to me that they deserved it. But again, if you can’t even defend yourself turn around and run away from the danger you just put yourself into.
