A meme where members of the alt-right "joke" about giving leftists "free helicopter rides" (read: executing their political opponents).[1] This is in reference to the extrajudicial executions (Death flights) during the Dirty War in Argentina and following the 1973 Chilean coup. Political opponents of Argentina's Admiral Luis María Mendía} and Chile's Augusto Pinochet were flown over the ocean in an airplane or helicopter and pushed to their death.[2][3] This meme seemed to gain popularity early in Donald Trump's campaign, when he gave helicopter rides to children at the Iowa State Fair.[4] To Trump's credit, he did not murder them.
