Human Scum: Exhibit A

Reality shows, which have dominated TV since 2000, often celebrate different types of human scum. While most are merely cringeworthy or slow trainwrecks, there are a few where it is impossible to feel any sympathy for the “stars”.

Operation Repo is one such show. It is not possible to feel any empathy, let alone sympathy, for fat ugly scum who repossess peoples stuff. This is especially true in an era where the “capitalists” who “own the world” are being propped up by taxpayer money. There is something obscene about a society that degrades and screws over average people, while rewarding the well connected.

Here is the show website: Operation Repo

Here is a clip that foreshadows what will happen one day.. hopefully to completion.

    Looks to me like a homeboy bought more car than he could afford.

    You may viscerally cheer the 5th quintile in this type of instance, but they are not the ones you want building a society.

    As opposed to a random bankster who destroyed billions of dollars, or an MBA who have destroyed the careers of tens of thousands of skilled and educated people. They deserve their compensation and bonuses?

      I hope every repo person on earth will be shot and hopefully die. preying on HARD WORKING people that have had some bad luck. SCUM SCUM SCUM..FUCK THEM. Big tough guys with tats..fuck you assholes. Get a REAL job. By the way, I am one of the HARD working people that was laid off after working for 30 YEARS straight. I don’t know the story behind this video. Maybe those kids are punks. Maybe not. If I catch a repo man trying to take my car I’m putting a bullet in his mother fucking scrotum. Maybe two.

      Ya, it is funny that they target hard working people who have fallen on bad times, but banksters can get trillions of dollars from the federal reserve.

      The funny part is that banksters use this money to gamble even more..

    AD has a point. Those cars and houses were overpriced to begin with. The 5th quintile, along with the 4th and 3rd are oftentimes desperate for status and so extend themselves without too much thought re: contingencies if present income conditions do not persist.

    Great post. But please correct the spelling. It’s “repossess,” even if that looks odd (I spell checked it).

    I’m no fan of banksters and their ilk. The answer is to fix the system so finance serves us instead of vise versa. Don’t forget that most businesses serve the customers best interest. Don’t be too quick to abandon things for the mores of the lower class.

    Banks have to be run as utilities, as opposed to companies that can make obscene profits by gambling your money (and rescued it they fail).

    There’s a reason that almost every society in history has had some sort of prohibition against usury. Without that it is far too easy for a handful of well capitalized people to create masses of debt slaves and completely wreck a country.

    yep.. but our “elites” think that this can go on forever.

    Taking the practice of repossession to its absurd limit, a new movie with Jude Law and Forest Whitaker called “RepoMen” criticizes an “uber-capitalistic” health care with images of body organ repo.

    Repo Men (2010) IMDB

    I am afraid that we have reached that level of absurdity.

    I used to watch that all the time, as well as Lizard Lick Towing. A bunch of idiots taking joy out of repossessing people’s cars. In reality, those who evict people out of their homes are the absolute worst. They take joy in throwing people out in the streets, breaking their material items and tossing their clothes in mud puddles and snow.

    Years ago, I lived in this high-rise apartment with my parents and they did that to the wrong person. Months afterwards, someone literally blew up the apartment lobby.
