Skip to comments.This Valentine's Day: Punch a Hippie (Belated)
Posted on 02/19/2008 12:07:26 PM PST by mnehring
One day when I was but a young boy, I was walking down the street with my dad to the hardware store. He suddenly stopped, crossed the street and punched a man. When he returned, I ask, "Father, why did you punch that man?"
He turned to me and said, "That's a stupid question." Then he punched me. "After punching a hippie, do you take the time to explain to those around you why you punched the hippie?"
It was a stupid question, because who my dad punched was a hippie. Back then, everyone knew that you punched hippies, but I've noticed that this knowledge may not be being passed on to the next generation. If there's one thing I've realized over the past few years is that hippies are not being punched quite enough, and I think the recent incident with Berkeley and the Marines shows the problem of not enough hippie punching. If hippies aren't punched on a consistent basis, they get cocky and will try all sorts of crazy thing. I mean, really, hippies insulting Marines and not expecting a punching? That's a major breakdown in our societal structure.
So what has led to this dearth in hippie punching? Breakdown in family structure? Loss of prayer in school? Increasing childhood obesity? Prevalence of non-violent videogames? Whatever the reason, I think we need to spend more time telling the next generation the importance of striking hippies in the face with a fist. No functional society has survived hippies running around unpunched, and America will be similarly doomed if we don't change our ways.
You may say, "Well I punch hippies; I'm doing my part." But after punching a hippie, do you take the time to explain to those around you why you punched the hippie? This may seem like a lot to do for someone who has a job and personal responsibilities -- which you have since you're not a hippie -- but if even just one man hears your words of inspiration and then punches some filthy hippie, wasn't it time well spent?
We have a war right now. Our military is overseas killing terrorists -- the violent form of the hippie -- so they can't be here punching hippies for us. We have to do that ourselves. To keep this a country safe for soldiers to kill evil foreigners without hearing whiny protests, we have to make it unsafe for hippies.
Well said Punches Hippes.
Quick question: Other than the title, what does punching hippies have to do with Valentines Day? Can’t we punch hippies all year long?
Best post ever. I hate hippies and punched a bunch back in the 70’s. Now as a rich conservative I have to keep punching to a minimum.
See, this is what I was trying to tell you people last summer but all you could talk about was Gucci loafers, golf carts, and “fire in the belly”.
Ping list for the discussion of the politics and social (and sometimes nostalgic) aspects that directly effects Generation Reagan / Generation-X (Those born from 1965-1981) including all the spending previous generations are doing that Gen-X and Y will end up paying for.
Freep mail me to be added or dropped. See my home page for details and previous articles.
I might have to start linking to Frank J’s “In My World” posts. They’re even funnier.
I’d like to amend this story to insert ‘Congressional DemoCreep’ in place of each instance of ‘Hippie’ ;o)
All those hippies are now in congress and have made hippie-punching a hate crime.
Wouldn’t it be better to punch a Code Pinkie? Most hippies I’ve ever seen are just inconsequential bums. How about punching a RAT? Alan Colmes, Bob Beckel, Keith Olberman, Ellis Hennican, who could resist?
What do you think neohippies are?
I was thinking of Forest Gump when I read this, he gave a hippie a pretty good wallop.
If it were not a prosecutable crime I’d love to punch Keith Olbermann all day, and all of the night.
Note, I do not advocate violence of any sort. But man, I’d sure love to punch Keith Olbermann all day, and all of the night.
A call to arms if I ever heard one!
Spot on. The commie-leftist mantra of the ‘60s was “Work within the system,” meaning get elected to office, infiltrate schools and churches, etc. And so they did. We see the ultimate result of the mantra in the candidacies of Barak Hussein Obama and Billary Clinton.
There is something called the communist manifesto, and they follow it relentlessly.
Only if it’s got a pointy end...;o)
Better wear protective clothing. I’m not sure I want someone with extensive experience in alternative sexual practices and the use of illegal drugs bleeding on me.
Considering the cost of routine disposal of the protective clothing, hippie-punching might turn out to be a rather expensive sport.
That picture reminds me of a rabidly feminist hippie chick who used to work in the lab next to mine. She came in one day asking if a certain procedure was difficult. I told her that it was “so easy I could train a monkee, and even some women to do it”. She didn’t react well. Later in retaliation I dumped a bucket of crushed ice over her head. I think she dug me after that.
Before they multiply
Given the late notice and all... can we extend this through St. Patrick’s Day?
on my way into work this morning, a bumper sticker on the back of an old pickup:
SHUT UP, HIPPIE.
We need “National Punch-A-Hippie Day.”
I used to be a hippy. Don’t worry, life punched me enough. The other day I ran into someone whom I knew years ago. She told her friend that the best thing about me? I used to be a hippy and they both had big and accepting grins towards hippyness. So I said, yes, and now I’ve recovered and I’m a conservative Republican. Smiles faded and they made some excuse to move on.
Hillary looks completed baked in that picture!
OMG, you’re funny! Got me falling off my chair!
Hippie Punching FAQ
Posted by Frank J. at 12:36 PM | View blog reactions | Comments (11)
Unfortunately, American society has gotten lax on hippie punching to the point I thought I should write an FAQ to better explain the issue to those who don’t currently engage in the punching of hippies. Hopefully one day this will all become so natural again that a hippie punching FAQ will be about as necessary as a flipping people off in traffic FAQ.

OMG, that is just toooooo funny. Thanks for causing me to scare everybody else in my office by falling out of my chair....
The commie-leftist mantra of the 60s was Work within the system, meaning get elected to office, infiltrate schools and churches, etc. And so they did.
LOL. Was that before or after they ‘turned on tuned in and dropped out’?
I think you are confusing hippies and communists. I’ve known my share of both, and if there is one thing communists AND conservatives don’t like, and that is hippies.
I disagree, but don’t have time to explain this to you. However, I refer to post #14 this thread, and the many many threads re code pink, including the most recent Berzerkly debacle.
A. Maybe youre a hippie.
ROTFLMAO. This thread is great.
Punch a hippie-save a whale ping.
What about all the more conservative kids who dressed like hippies back then so they could meet guys/girls? I guess you could spot them because they washed their hair and their bell bottoms were ironed and in good shape?
“I said, yes, and now Ive recovered and Im a conservative Republican. Smiles faded and they made some excuse to move on.”
When my oldest son is in town his little brother and I enjoy going over to the college hippie coffee shop at the local University and engage each other in boisterous politically conservative conversations. The patron’s sneers and contemptuous looks are our pleasure.
Have you punched a hippie today?
Top 10 all-time episode right there.
Didn't inhale my *ss. I bet you couldn't unwrap his fingers from the bong.
