This genius Jay Mundy needs no help from us in going completely and totally viral, but there is a disturbing if also exhilarating recognition in hearing the exact rant you’ve unleashed many a time come out of the mouth of a man who is reportedly a right wing psychopath. Slash genius! Above is the first half of a radio rant he went on excoriating the entire neighborhood of Williamsburg, which he defines as “a place that is now the official hipster neighborhood of the United States of America.” And what is it like there, Jay Mundy?! “Picture the most left-wing, lunatic, liberal, hippy, 1960s nutcase–get that image in your head. Keep that in your head a second. Now multiply that by hundreds, or thousands, and that is what Williamsburg is–it is extremely scary.” (To be fair, one half to two thirds of SOTC are agnostic to downright pro- Williamsburg, but this bitter remaining third is with Mundy to the max.) Anyway, he goes on!
But what about their politics, Jay?!
Something about that “carefree.” Or perhaps it’s his unknowing equation of Williamsburg hipsters to ’60s hippies, which is sociologically brilliant–far from resembling your classic downtown, Manhattan derelict hipster, Williamsburg “hipsters” are in fact basically semi-evolved hippies, and should be treated as such. By brilliant right-wing talk show radio hosts! And, possibly, the rest of us–or one of us, anyway. The extremely gratifying remainder of Mundy’s rant is below.
