Apparently in the town of Natick there’s a big hubabaloo going on ever since the superintendent of school resigned abruptly on March 1. I have no clue what’s going on, nor do I care about the affairs of small town politics. I am however always intrigued when a guy shows up to the School Committee meeting with a ukulele, starts singing a song, forces the meeting to end, and then refuses to leave when the cops ask him several times to do so. Starting right around the 7:00 mark:
Now my initial reaction when I first started watching that video was to side with ukulele man. He seemed pretty sharp, he kept referencing things that I like (the First Amendment), and the woman who told him to cut the shit seemed like your typical School Committee member who doesn’t think she has to answer to the public. I mean, seriously. Just let the man sing his song. Let him say what he has to say and move on. Whatever you do, don’t get triggered, throw a hissy fit, and shut down the meeting because a guy with a ukulele is hurting your feelz. Clutch those pearls a little harder lady.
Then I saw the guy’s true colors when the cops came to ask him to leave because he was now sitting in an empty room singing a song to himself:
Turns out Ron Alexander (ukulele man) is actually from Wellesley, so I have no idea why any of this even concerns him. But he lost me once he started being a douchenugget to the cops. They’re just doing their jobs dude. They were asked by those who are in charge to remove you. They’re not there to offer their opinion on policy or pat you on the back for being such a great citizen. They’re there to enforce the law, and if those who are in power have decided to kick your ass out then your ass needs to leave.
This is what problems look like in Natick.
