During President Trump’s feisty rally in Phoenix, Arizona this week, on particularly unlucky leftist agitator made headlines around the nation.
Although we didn’t know his name at the time, Josh Cobin was soon to be internet-famous after donning a hilarious getup that included a gas mask for protection, but also shorts. This fashion-versus-function faux pas wasn’t Cobin’s claim to fame, however. We did a little play-by-play of his ordeal right here.
Cobin’s ugly incident captured the attention of the internet on that fateful night, sealing forever his infamy as the Antifa twerp who took a shot to the manhood on live television. Now, however, it looks as though he’s not quite finished being publicly emasculated after his returning of a tear gas canister in the general direction of the Phoenix police has the young man being charged with assault.
“Cobin was arrested Thursday night and charged with three felony counts of aggravated assault on police and a misdemeanor for unlawful assembly, according to CBS 5.
“Cobin doesn’t believe he did anything really bad.
“’I don’t equate kicking or putting back tear gas canisters as attacking police. I never attacked a police officer,’ he said in an interview. ‘That was not an unlawful assembly and that I had every right to be there. And that tear gas was in the way of myself and every other peacefully assembled protesters being there.’
“'[Cobin] has posted images and admissions to his crime on social and local media outlets,’ said Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Jonathan Howard.”
Like a great many other misguided millennial twerps who liken themselves to revolutionaries, it was Cobin’s incessant need to brag on social media that became his downfall.
During the radical left’s recent attempts to incite a New Civil War in this nation, it has become painfully obvious that these “activists” are far more concerned with gaining the admiration of their peers on social media than they are with enacting any real change. In the ugly and unacceptable toppling of a Confederate statue in Durham, North Carolina just days ago, a number of these self-absorbed miscreants immediately outed themselves as nothing more than opportunistic narcissists who immediately reached for their smartphones as a piece of American history came crashing down.
