Check out Norm of Onegoodmove’s account and re-hosted video of a hilarious turn of events at the “Cindy Doesn’t Support Us Rally” in Crawford: We don’t do irony.
It seems the good subversives of Protest Warrior, who like to stage counter-demonstrations with signs bearing clever (well, at least they think so) slogans like, “WAR HAS NEVER SOLVED ANYTHING (except for ending slavery, fascism, naziism and communism)”, carried said signs into a pro-Bush rally, and were driven off by angry Bush supporters who mistook them for Cindy Sheehan fans.
The poetic justice is really too, too much. I love the part of the video where they are trying to explain, and one or two of the crowd get it, and are saying to their angry brethren, “No, wait, read the sign, see? They’re on our side.” But the crowd looks at the sign, and squints for a few seconds at the big print (“WAR NEVER SOLVED ANYTHING”), and decides that nope, these smart-ass kids are making fun of us, and screams and yells at them until they’re forced to leave.
If you Protest Warriors want to do humor and irony and subtle/clever mocking, you probably should stick to counter-protesting against us leftists. We may argue with you that you’re wrong, but at least we get the joke.
Face it: You have more in common with us than with them.
