“Fair warning” to hipsters and yuppies

A new tag on Samy’s Liquors at 24th and Bryant makes some pretty clear threats to a couple broad swaths of people. It instructs to kill hipsters and yuppies, two hard to define groups that were often derided among taggers in the last decade, but makes no mention of techies, the neighborhood slur du jour.

This is my fair warning to the hipsters + the yuppies!!
Get the [fuck?] Up Out the MISSION!! Before this [shit?] starts getting UGLY!!
you got 6 Months, Keep it Kickin!! If you don’t, it won’t be funny!
I Guarantee my Soldiers will GLADLY Come Out GUNNIN!!

    Immediately after this happpened, scores of social justice types and “community organizers” rallied at this spot to protest against this type of intimidation. Nah, just kidding. That will never happen.

  3. Johnny says:

    How long do i have to live here to be disqualified from this? Or is it purely based on how you dress?

  4. Max Weber says:

    He better have lots of bullets

  5. Sam says:

    Eh, I’m skeptical of that claim.

  6. Thomas F says:

    So basically, kill everybody in the Mish? Gotcha.

    • cam says:

      Only people that call it the mish

        And of course it’s people who call it “the mish” who are dumb enough to believe that the entire neighborhood is populated by yuppies and hipsters. So who did the graffiti then? A self-hating yuppie?

  7. one says:

    eh, I was into bullets before they were cool.

    uh, wait..what?

  8. Greg says:

    That’s funny.

    Kind of like those Japanese soldiers found hiding out in the jungle after V-J day, still convinced the war was on.

  10. ProblemSolver says:

    The mission still has hipsters?

    • Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable says:

      Are you kidding? The Mission is neck-deep in hipsters.

      • Tuffy says:

        What is a hipster?

        • Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable says:

          If you have to ask, you probably are one.

        • dude says:

          If a poor food service punk is a hipster and a six figure tech worker is also a hipster, the word is meaningless.

          • m says:

            95% of this blog’s readers can’t seem to differentiate between the two.

          • umm says:

            the common thread between the two is how much they wish they weren’t exactly the same. the tech worker and the service punk came from the same middle-class suburbs and have spent their adult lives trying to prove how different they are from one another . . .

          • dude and m, always my point! umm, you’re making stuff up — I don’t believe you’ve ever been either of them — and there’s acres of room between the two that nobody talks about.

          • Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable says:

            You are incorrect. Hipsters can be poor, hipsters can be rich, hipsters can be unemployed, hipsters can make 6 figures. It’s a fashion/style affectation, it’s not a fucking social class.

  11. Just wait ’til Judge Dredd hears about this.

  12. Radley says:

    Now you’re even cooler if you live or hangout in the mission. Ironic.

  13. Ron says:

    Kids these days….

    ….just having fun

  15. scum says:

    Glad to see our school system is working so well.

  16. JohnnyL says:

    Ass. clown.

  17. Who you guys laughin’ at? This dope is the soul brother of whoever writes half the comments on this blog.

  18. JT says:

    So the Irish are finally going to take back the mission, got it.

  19. Floyd says:

    This message would have packed a lot more oomph if he’d provided a hashtag.

  20. arse says:

    pronounced yucky

  21. Susan says:

    The saddest/stupidist part is that no perceived Yuppie not Hipster would ever have the insight our self-awareness to self-identify in that way.

  22. Young professional says:

    Graffiti threat? Lame.

    Last time I checked this was a free country and I could live wherever I damn please.

    Adopt a Latin name and grow a beard. Problem solved.
