WATCH: Hilarious Video From The Democratic Socialist Convention; Crowd Erupts Due to 'Sensory Overload,' Gendered Pronoun Usage
Holy emotional support unicorns, ya'll. Video has emerged from the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) National Convention in Georgia last weekend, and it is the most unintentionally hilarious thing you've ever heard in your life. Honest to goodness, Monty Python couldn't write something this great, and it's totally NOT parody!!
"Uh, quick point of personal privilege, um guys," began one delegate, who identified himself as James Jackson from Sacramento, and specified that he uses the "he/him" personal pronouns.
As soon as Jackson said the word "guys," an individual in the audience could be seen becoming visibly irate in a livestream video of the convention posted online.
"I just want to say, can we please keep the chatter to the minimum? I'm one of the people who's very, very prone to sensory overload," Jackson said. Several other delegates could be seen waving "Jazz hands" in the air, instead of applauding, as he spoke. (Jazz hands are considered less "triggering" to those sensitive to loud sounds.)
"There's a lot of whispering and chattering going on. It's making it very difficult for me to focus. Please, I know we're all fresh and ready to go, but can we please just keep the chatter to a minimum? It's affecting my ability to focus."
"Thank you, comrade," the chair responded.
Within seconds, the individual who had appeared irritated by Jackson's words stumbled toward the microphone to yell, "Point of personal privilege! Point of personal privilege!"
"Yes?" the chair asked.
"Please do not use gendered language to address everyone!"
"OK," the chair said, seemingly flustered.
Jackson, however, would soon come back for another round.
"Quick point of privilege ONCE again!" Jackson said later in the day, before reciting rotely, "Hi, James Jackson, Sacramento DSA, he/him."
"I have ALREADY asked people to be mindful of the chatter of their comrades who are sensitive to sensory overload," Jackson said. "And that goes DOUBLE for the heckling and the hissing. It is also triggering to my anxiety. Like, being comradely isn't just for like, keeping things civil or whatever. It's so people aren't going to get triggered, and so that it doesn't affect their performance as a delegate."
Jackson said that while "your need to express yourself is important," it does not "trump" his own personal needs.
Check out the video for yourself and again, we stress that this is NOT a parody.
