Skip to comments.Video: 'Occupy Atlanta' Silences Rep. John Lewis Via Jazz Hands (TOTALLY HILARIOUS!)

Having watched this clip all the way through several times, I still can't stop chuckling. Here's a quick primer to prepare you for what you're about to see:
The video begins as civil rights pioneer Rep. John Lewis rrives at #OccupyAtlanta, hoping to express solidarity and articulate support with some brief remarks.
Unfortunately for him, the Congressman is totally unacquainted with the gathering's "rules," which make the US Senate look like a model of efficiency.
The group's "leader" (the hippie with the bullhorn) speaks in three-second intervals so the rest of the assembled group can chant his partial sentences back at him. They're speaking with "one voice," you see. In order to build a consensus, they "debate" whether Lewis should be permitted to speak, or if the program should continue as planned.
This quasi-vote is taken through a juvenile system of silent finger-wiggling (yes, really). The consensus shifts several times before the group settles on a conclusion: Lewis is not any more valuable than any other human being, his request to speak is therefore denied. This decision prompts an angry outburst from Lewis supporters, who immediately earn angry jazz hands of scorn for chanting out of turn.
The look on Lewis' face throughout these, um, "deliberations" is absolutely priceless. When his speaking opportunity is ultimately nixed, he just wanders off in a confused daze. Isn't the Left awesome, Congressman? The cringe-worthy preciousness and feel-goodery of the entire episode evokes a dystopic kindergarten setting, in which every child and teacher has equal say in everything. If it weren't so laugh-out-loud pathetic, I think this video represents a snapshot of my own personal hell.
UPDATE: The Washington Times' Kerry Picket emails to inform me that "Jazz Hands democracy" was also on display in New York this weekend.

That system is referred to as “Human Microphone”. It originated in NYC iirc, because NYC requires a permit to use an amplified sound system or a bullhorn in public.
It’s very creepy, and very slow, and very cultish...
If that did not scare the crap out of me because these idiots are so deranged, I might well have fallen out of my chair laughing.
It would be a lot funnier if they weren’t being stirred to a bloodlust that would make Manson proud.
So creepy. Did you see the congressman’s face and the faces of the people with him? They were totally creeped out.
They won't let John Lewis speak because everyone has a right to speak. Except for John Lewis, that is. If you let him speak, he might be more equal than everyone else who is allowed to speak.
Lewis is lucky these freaks didn’t behead him. They are really into beheading these days. Something their “solidarity” Muzzie brothers taught them. I think it would be wise for all politicans, regardless of party, to stay away from these zombie freaks.
Am I the only one who looks at this and thinks of “The Great Leap Forward” and the bloodshed it engendered?
I cannot believe what I am seeing.
They look like a bunch of brainwashed children. Jazz hands? BARF!
This is the inevitable result of an entire generation of children growing up in day care. They are incapable of independent thought.
That’s why I tell the libertarians to stay away from these people. When their puppet masters no longer need rabble rousers, they will deal with them as harshly as they want to deal with the “evil rich”.
These freaks are all racists. Why didn’t they let the congressman speak????? Why...he is a liberal civil rights icon. Such racist disrespect...
The look on Lewis's face when they are going on about the hand signal stuff - then he looks at his hands and wiggles his fingers check to see if they work is classic.
After three minutes of this mockery he had to think -
“why in the h*ll did Nancy Pelosi send ME to talk to a bunch of weirdos - what a B*TCH!”
I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when he got home.

A 5 year old with a good chant could take over these morons. The people that are under 100 IQ are here, many chanting along have a sub 70. This is so funny I can’t stop thinking on how I could infiltrate and get them to zombie along with any broken phrase.
My Lord, these people could not find their butts with both hands, a road map, AND a professional guide. These are the pathetic losers to whom we are giving up our liberty?
I’ve been keeping tabs on them with their livestream broadcast. They seem to do the weird echo chant all the time when they speak.
Believe it. Worse - far worse - is coming.
hahaha, thanks for sharing. That is a long video but is so funny.
Hilarious. Seriously many of these people need some considerable "couch time" with trained professionals. Its almost sad to watch, to see humans in this mental condition.<>MICHAEL SAVAGE IS RIGHT: LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL DISORDER. My I bet he has a field day with this humor.!!!
