These last few months have proven that 2017 is the summer of the modern protest, with Americans taking to the streets to take up arms against just about anything.
A great deal of this fervor has been generated by the likes of Antifa, a radical leftist organization whose objectives remain murky. They are seemingly anti-Trump and anti-fascist, although their incessant need to promote only their own political views through violence has led many to believe that they themselves are likely employing the tenets of fascism to achieve their goals. One thing is for certain, however; they love taking selfies and being in the headlines.
In the shadow of these violently vitriolic leftists lie a number of more passive protesters – weekend warriors, if you will – who are looking forward to getting a piece of the anti-something fame without really getting their hands dirty or risking any jail time or injury. Nowhere is this half-measure culture more prevalent than it is in California.
In fact, a number of counter protesters in San Francisco and Berkeley are planning to exploit their pets to do the dirty work for them this weekend with the “Patriot Prayer” group comes to town.
And we mean dirty.
“When a group of far-right activists come to San Francisco to hold a rally this Saturday, they will be met by peace activists offering them flowers to wear in their hair.
“Also, dog [poop]. Lots and lots of dog [poop].
“Hundreds of San Franciscans plan to prepare Crissy Field, the picturesque beach in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge where rightwing protest group Patriot Prayer will gather, with a generous carpeting of excrement.
“’I just had this image of alt-right people stomping around in the poop,’ Tuffy Tuffington said of the epiphany he had while walking Bob and Chuck, his two Patterdale terriers, and trying to think of the best way to respond to rightwing extremists in the wake of Charlottesville. ‘It seemed like a little bit of civil disobedience where we didn’t have to engage with them face to face.’”
“Tuffington, a 45-year-old artist and designer, created a Facebook event page based on the concept, and the dog owners of San Francisco responded in droves. Many have declared their intention to stockpile their [poop]piles for days in advance, then deliver them in bags for the site. (The group is also planning to reconvene on Sunday to ‘clean up the mess and hug each other’.)”
In true California style, this passive aggressive nonsense will make for an unpleasant day for other visitors to the area as well.
The state itself has become a haven for aggressive liberalism in recent months, with a number ridiculous calls for secession from the United States on account of Donald Trump’s election. This comes as one of the ultimate ironies of the President’s first term, as the rest of the liberal world is busy attempting to censor American history by erasing all signs of the Civil War Confederacy, a group of states that seceded from the nation in the 1860’s in protest of massive overreach by the federal government into the rights of individual states.
