Boy Discovers The Best Use For Bagpipes: Shutting Down Hate-Preachers

Americans are no strangers to hateful preachers, but when it comes to finding a solution for how to deal with them, it seems we should look abroad. Specifically, to Scotland, where a 14-year-old boy took one down in the best way possible: by blowing on his bagpipes.

Captured by YouTuber lachieblair, the video features a man rambling about some things we can’t quite make out. According to the New York Daily News, the man was yelling anti-Muslim sentiments with the help of a microphone and amplifier, when people encouraged Daniel Boyle to play his pipes over this maniac. Conveniently, this pride piper’s name could be abbreviated to Danny Boy.

Though video, which has already received over one million views, describes Daniel as taking down this hate-preacher in the “most Scottish way possible,” this way of dealing seems suited for anyone with bagpipes lying around. So if you’ve been looking to learn how to play, now is the time. The world needs more people like Boyle to drown out hateful noise. Judging from a recent Google search, there are more potential pipers floating around than you would think.  [NY Daily News]
