(Bloomington, Indiana, Somewhere outside of a dried up cornfield 10/19/2018) It was a blustery day on the campus of Indiana University, but the wind didn’t keep a group of intrepid comrades away from taking a stand at a public event featuring the Democratic Socialist, Senator Bernie Sanders.

Please take a moment to share this historic article. The uniqueness is overwelming.

I was curious, “Who were these NPCs and what was their collective message?”
Most of them wouldn’t speak, but with some coaxing, a few of them repeated some text they all seemed to have written on a 3 by 5 note card they held in their front right pocket. Here’s what it said while literally shaking:
I am unique. We are here to represent our fallen comrades who have had their experiences invalidated by a man named Jack. He and the #OrangeMan will not divide us. We have nothing to lose but our chains. #OrangeManBad.
“Who is Jack,” I asked? But it was too late. The NPC blurted out, “#OrangeManBad,” and scampered away.
As far as I can tell, “Jack” may refer to the owner of Twitter and the censorship these NPCs have had to endure.
This is a developing story…this is what we have so far:
Varying reports of 4-7 NPCs were spotted at the event today on the campus of Indiana University.
Observe this NPC fearlessly lead a mob of, presumably, like-minded NPCs to the polls. It’s not clear if any of these folks actually voted. But they followed this NPC’s chant fairly well.
Senator Sanders even featured the NPCs in this video put out by his office:

The sign holding NPCs appear to have been spread throughout the crowd.
Blogger, Jenny Hatch created a compilation video from the event. Follow her on Twitter.
I’m told the NPCs all felt deeply moved that Senator Sanders saw fit to tweet out a picture featuring one of their members shortly after the event. “It’s great to know he cares and respects the NPC movement,” one of them texted me later in the evening.
A closer view:
At the time of publication, people were already posting “#OrangeManBad” comments in support of these brave NPCs work.
