If you haven't seen them, some clever folks started showing up at these town hall protests with faux signs that make light of these Fox-fed people ranting and raving about Nazis and Orwell and whatnot. Here is a link and some good examples of what's being done:
If any of these protesters wanted to have a serious, fact-based discussion about health care, they have had ample time and many places to do so. But that is not what they want and it is not why they are out there protesting. So how bout it, Obama supporters? How about making up some clever signs to hold amongst the Dittoheads, Hannityhearts, Beckbutts and O'Reilly's Righteous Roisterers? Get in that crowd and get on the news holding some mad slogan that tells the world that you are all a bunch of crazy racist fascists! Show them you have absolutely no idea what you are fighting for but you are mad as hell and willing to misspell with a Crayola marker! Get mad and tell them that you're White, you're Right and you're not gonna fake it anymore!
Here are some suggestions for some rally signs; please post your own in the comments below and let us know if you put them to use:
Don't Socialize Our Medicare!
Take Back the Flat Earth!
Americans Against Dinosaurs in the Bible!
Guns Not Jobs!
I Support Heterosexual Fetuses!
Americans Against Rational Thought!
White is the New Black!
When I put this out to some friends, some of the replies were outrageous, but that's the point isn't it? The more far out, the better, cause like Obama said, TV loves a ruckus. Like these:
Omelets Are Abortion!
Beck is Reich! (add some swastikas and a Hitler mustache on Glenn Beck)
and other racist, homophobic or completely nonsensical froth. Guns not Jobs? Gaybortions? WTF?! In the end, efforts at rationality cannot shout down these people. They won't allow reason, facts and data or civility to frame the debate. But we can dilute their message. They say if you can't beat em, join em. Just hold your sign high and get that photo out there! See you on the news...
