SC Lawnmower Man Rides To D.C. Rescue

Fear not, federal government … the Palmetto State is here to help! Just when you thought the so-called government “shutdown” had incapacitated America – as only a 17 percent reduction in the most bloated bureaucracy in human history could do – riding to the rescue is some Grizzly Adams looking dude…

Fear not, federal government … the Palmetto State is here to help!

Just when you thought the so-called government “shutdown” had incapacitated America – as only a 17 percent reduction in the most bloated bureaucracy in human history could do – riding to the rescue is some Grizzly Adams looking dude carrying a South Carolina state flag.

His contribution to the cause? Mowing the grass around the Lincoln Memorial.

Talk about having a dream, people!

This is just incredible on so many levels …

First, that someone would do something selfless in our society (imagine that). Second that this random act of agrarian independence wasn’t shut down in advance by National Security Agency snooping. And third that the administration of Barack Obama hasn’t dropped a drone on this guy’s head yet.

Yet … 

Anyway, here’s another look at Grizzly toting the Indigo and White as he meticulously manicures the Lincoln Memorial grounds …

Say it with us, everybody: “Free cut grass! Free cut grass! Thank God Almighty we got free cut grass!”

UPDATE: Courtesy of CBS-DC, here is a profile of Grizzly the Lawnmower Man (a.k.a. Chris Cox). He has formed what he calls the “Memorial Militia,” and is dedicated to keeping our monuments up to snuff during the “shutdown.”

UPDATE II: S.C. Rep. Mark Sanford has issued a statement praising Cox … 

“Chris embodies what it means to be not just a South Carolinian, but an American,” Sanford said. “He saw a job that wasn’t getting done and decided to take care of it. We are not a nanny state, and when government in this case chooses not to do something it’s in keeping with the American tradition to ask, ‘What can I do to fix the problem?’ Chris’s example is one we could all learn from in Washington, and accordingly, I applaud him.”

1) Container of explosive gas made its way near the Capitol
2) An instrument with whirling sharp blades was in the proximity of elected officials
3) A noxious cloud of deadly gas was being released
4) A swarthy bearded individual, possibly from the Southeast, was the ring leader
5) The ring leader was clothed in the flag of a State known for its secessionist leanings

Somebody’s head is going to roll

Once again…..this is a clear example of how FITSNEWS is NOT educating fellow SC taxpayers in our state. We expect better from Wil Folks.

The utter gall of this SC taxpayer to go to DC and not take a group of concerned migrant landscape “artists” to help him weed eat while he pushed his mower.

The utter gall to not have a web page set up to call all turbin wearing Americans to show up at the exact same time with lawn mowers to help him….how selfish..!!

The utter gall for his significant female “partner” to allow him to go by himself and not participate by selling lemonade…!!! Does any woman in our state understand HOW to be a QUEEN….??

The utter gall of this lawn mowing patriot to not inform his Instagram posse to post his picture asking a question to Senator Graham why he is not out helping…!!

Well…….at least maybe Nancy Mace has the noodle to figure out a way to use this in her debate with Graham….!!!

Dear Nancy Mace……

How disgusting do you think it is that US Senator Lindsey Graham did not ask all furloughed federal workers to show up to help this guy mow grass…!?

The saddest and most confused guy I ever met was in New York City. He had a Jewish bartender and an Irish psychiatrist…..

Liberal response:
“If he really cared about the environment he would be using a push reel mower that mulched. I’m shocked that he is taking the opportunity to volunteer at the Lincoln Memorial from a more deserving minority volunteer or a child. Obviously, he’s doing this because he’s a racist who hates children and women but most especially small Black/Asian mixed girls.”
