Self Immolation

A Trump-hating “protester” set himself on “fire” outside the Trump International Hotel a few blocks from the White House in Washington, D.C. but “failed” to kill himself.

The 45-year-old Californian used an unidentified “accelerant” and a lighter in an unsuccessful attempt to “flambé” himself for social justice.

“I tried to light myself on fire as an act of protest,” he reportedly told reporters before they filed their reports.

He said he was making a statement about “the fact that we’ve elected somebody who is completely incapable of respecting the Constitution of the United States.”

He was admitted to hospital with “serious” but not life-threatening “burns” much to the dismay of “#DisruptJ20” leaders. Police have so far “declined” to press charges.

It was unclear if the man was “insane” or simply a very “dedicated” demonstrator. Given his disinclination to fully “combust” he is unlikely to have been an “Eagle Scout.”

This is the sort of heroism the left inspires: “a mindless groupie who is willing to torch himself for pretty much no reason at all. I’m sure the left is in a state of mourning following this unfortunate lack of success. No horrendous burns either — so no skin badge of honor. This really stinks.”

This is how “uncaring” these conservatives are…

“A form of anti-Trump protest I can totally support. Anti-Trump protestor sets himself on fire.” — Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) January 18, 2017

It was most “revolutionary” of this protestor to attempt such a demonstration of “incrementalist world changingness.”

My suggestion: “If at first you don’t succeed, try again.”

I don’t want to set the world on fire,
I just want to start a flame in my heart.
In this world I have but one desire,
And that one is flame, all others be shamed.

I’ve lost all my nerves, in a world of flame,
I just want to be a burning man.
And if I was smarter, inside of my brain,
I’ll have reached the goal I planned on, believe me.

I don’t want to set the world on fire,
I just want to start a flame in my heart.
I just wanna set myself on fire, Bernie,
I love you so much.

I just want to start a great big flame down in my heart.
And in this world I have but one desire,
And that one desire is flame, and all the others, they ought to be shamed.

I’ve lost all my nerves, in a world of flame,
I just want to be a burning man.
And if I was smarter, inside of my brain,
I’ll have reached the goal I planned on, believe me.

I don’t want to set the world on fire,
I just want to start a flame in my heart.

Bonfire of a fool’s vanities
