Dangerous.com has a beautiful write up of helicopterism, and its importance to modern day American culture.
Helicopterism, both as a funny meme, and as a grave warning to Marxists, is the recognition that the Communists want you dead. And if they ever come to power, if they ever touch off that revolution they keep blathering on about, it’s going to be us or them. The joke will stop being funny, and will become deadly serious. We will lob them out of helicopters and laugh about it. Watching SJWs, who thought they were tough and were on the “right side of history” flail in the wind, flapping their arms like birds, will be grim…but hilarious?
We’ve started to see shades of this in protests across the country. Many of you may remember Based Stickman, and the joyous occasion when the stick he was named for impacted a thoroughly dense Commie skull. Antifa brought violence, yes. But Based Stickman and his compatriots brought pain in return. It will be the same when the SJWs start resorting to murder, as Communists inevitably do. Then the glorious sound of incoming helicopters will echo in the distance.
Uncle Pinochet would be quite proud, I think.
