Kentucky wrestler making noise as the “Progressive Liberal”

A professional wrestler here in Kentucky has found a gimmick that works as the “Progressive Liberal” Dan Richards, a heel (villain) in Appalachian Mountain Wrestling.

Richards taunts AMW event-goers by telling them things like “You vote against your own interests” and “You people need to be reprogrammed,” among other arguments against the other side of the aisle.

You can see one of the Progressive Liberal’s promos and some of his action in the YouTube video below:

This Friday he’ll be competing in a “Cry Baby Match” at Wolfe County High School with a diaper and a baby bottle on the line.

    He’s not wrong about the voting against your own interests part.

      Yeah, especially when nearly half of all Eastern Kentuckians rely on Medicaid or Obamacare subsidies.
      Plus, since coal died, healthcare is the number #1 industry in the area. Of course, now Mitch is determined to cut both big time so to give huge tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires who will take all that money out of KY to pad their bank accounts or to provide revenue for the Trump/Congressional slush funds used to smear liberals with more fake news.

      Coal is making a comeback. It almost died because of the Obama administration. It would have died if HRC had won the election. Keep up the phony slush fund/Russian hacking the election nonsense. It will guarantee a Trump win in 2020. And I’m a democrat.

      Wow…you are truly blinded by the echo chamber. Coal is dead because of plentiful natural gas and cheap oil, not Obama. Hillary or regulations have anything to do with it. Come back in 3-4 years and tell me coal is rebounding…its like living next to a VCR factory…those jobs ain’t coming back. Those that do will be almost strictly related to controlling automated machinery. LOL on calling the Russian hacking phony…are you seriously telling me that you don’t believe the many govt agencies that all concluded Russians meddled solely to help Trump win?? Even he is now admitting it happened and blaming Obama. Don’t worry…that whole criminal syndicate is going down..wait and see.
      Now…a Pence re-election win in 2020 after Trump resigns in disgrace…I actually might be able to buy that.

      Coal is and will forever be just a few years away from making a comeback. Alternative renewable energy is already cheaper than coal. As usual, money talks louder than all other voices. Coal jobs have gone the way of the horse-drawn carriage repairman and the dodo hunter. Let’s stop worrying about getting coal jobs back and start thinking about how to help the people who’ve been displaced by their departure.

      And yes the whole Russian thing is phony. There is absolutely ZERO chance they “hacked” into voting machines and changed votes. Hillary lost. Accept it and quit crying.

    If he’s wrestling at a high school on a Friday night then he’s not making noise.

    Luckily people learned after the last 8 years and went in another direction. Progressivism isn’t very progressive.

    He sashays onto the wrestling mat in a feather boa, loses the match and blames the loss on the Russians. You womanly KSR boys must be huge fans.

      Weird. Conservatives seemed to read just fine in the voting booth. Tired of losing yet?

    Too bad Ivan “The Russian Bear” Koloff is dead. The Progressive Liberal could blame him for every loss.

    Smart move by the wrestler dude. Will always get the fans lathered up and create a good atmosphere for the event if he plays it right. That being said, i would like to offer my two cents in an otherwise predictable KSR political comment section…. honestly, if you are left and constantly keep trying to rub peoples face in social justice issues rather than talk like adults to them, your side doesnt really deserve to win many elections and probably wont. If you are on the right, congrats on the cheap win that has proven just how useless and token the presidency has become. I know it feels good to say “nyah nyah nyah we won” but it hasnt changed the course our country is on. Renewables ARE the future. Natural gas will end up being the main fossel fuel to bridge the gap to that future. The sooner coal miners grow up, get educated on the various job that will be avaiable in those 2 fields, and understand they may just have to move to a different part of the state (or heaven forbid, the country)to get a family wage, the sooner we can move past this dated argument.

    This idea is actually brilliant. WWE needs a guy on school side like this. The execution isn’t great, but the idea is hilarious.

    billions of dollars wasted on solar subsidies and still it only accounts for >1% of electricity production. why?

    Thinking Obama killed coal jobs is as stupid as thinking Trump will save them.

      There’s plenty of stupidity in Washington DC. Thinking only one side is stupid is pure stupidity.
