Since we are all very passionate about politics here on DB. I'm sure many of us have gone to political rallies and events in the real world. So I thought it would be fun to post what is the craziest thing we have worn, done or sign we brought to a political event. If you have a picture all the better. :2razz:

Said the craziest thing I have done is gone a pro-gun rally wearing a full minute man costume (rental) with a fully functional replica musket (it was my friend's).

years ago, at college, the local rent a riot of far left agitators were protesting a small convenience store called WAWA food market over some silly issue involving Nestle's. You see Nestle's sold infant formula to third world mothers who would

1) cut it down far weaker than intended

2) fail to boil the water they added

and in both cases their infants would suffer either from malnutrition or dysentery

and somehow that was Nestle's fault

so I was feeling like some guerrilla theater so I got on my black belt and stuck a pair of nunchucks in it and went into wawa foods and pulled out a 20 and bought every nestle crunch bar I could find. And then I sat next the the door step of that shop in a chair the owner provided for me and ate a few nestle crunch bars and handed the others out to those who were passing by.

The protest died rather quickly. The campus police officers all knew me pretty well because most of them were members of the school's gun club. the two on patrol came by and one of them took a crunch bar the other guy said he just had a donut and was full.
 
i protested when the klan tried to give a hate speech in my town in the early 90s. it still makes me mad. most of the town showed up to protest, and the klan has not been back since.
 
"Just had a donut, I'm full" haha, who said cops can't have fun.

The difference between Yale Cops and New Haven cops was very little-the Campus cops had a better sense of humor

Freshman year two of my three suitemates were smoking some reefer when there was a knock on the door. I was waiting for some buddies to go to a pizza joint so I just opened the door without thinking. Two Campus cops. one came in and held his nose and looked around and said

you boys have any UNREGISTERED REFRIGERATORS OR HOT PLATES

No sir I said

OK carry on said the cop and he left

Craziest thing I ever did at a protest, was volunteer to serve as an Event Marshal, and stand between anti-war protesters including Code Pink and the Moonbats on one side, with the Patriot Riders and Gathering of Eagles on the other, on a day when it was rumored that the anti-war protesters were going to deface the Wall. Blood was in the air.

Never again...


Edit/addendum: I will say the DC Park Police impressed me immensely with their professionalism and restraint. Tough job.

I was in Gainesville, begging for John Kerry to talk to me about Bush and the "Skull and Bones". After that, all I remember was screaming like a bitch and being tackled by some "bros" who eventually tasered me.
 
In 2000,at a Bush rally in Milwaukee,I yelled "**** yeah"!! I was in college and goofing off,and a little excited.

I've protested alongside with the Tea Party here in Chicago....

I've never done anything crazy.

The craziest thing I have done was recite our Bill of Rights into a camera while some progressive reporter kept on saying "living document" 10x over...

She was looking to portray the Tea Party as a hateful "group" but she could find no one that fit her preconceived notion.... It was pretty sad....

You could clearly tell this reporter was expecting a bunch of redneck racists and all she found was regular concerned citizens of all races.... The look on her face was epic.

I only recited the Bill of Rights because the reporter kept asking me about race issues in an attempt to bait me.

So much for a non-biased media....
 
12 years old at a LBJ rally in charleston, sc
like my Dad, was a AuH2O supporter
as an air force load master, he hauled the president's car around, so he felt constrained from saying anything himself
which is probably why he brought his wise ass kid
so, during the president's remarks, i would heckle him. repeatedly. and the audience would laugh at each comment. it was awkward laughter and i loved it
even tho he was president, we both knew i had the advantage as Johnson could not snidely respond to a kid, no matter how rude i was
within the month Dad got orders to report overseas, no longer responsible for hauling the presidential limo
always wondered if that was just a coincidence

attended a jefferson-jackson state demo banquet where John Glenn was the featured speaker
my federal co-worker knew he was my personal hero as a kid, in part responsible for majoring in aerospace engineering
and she happened to have previously been his constituency staffer back in ohio
she agreed to make introductions and to also inquire about what (low level) staff positions might be available
this was a huge deal
however, i bartended at the VFW the weekend immediately prior to the event
as a result of that experience i showed up at the J-J function with a vividly fresh black eye, courtesy of a blind-sided punch thrown by a fellow who resented the attention i was receiving from a certain woman in the club
when i met Senator Glenn he inquired about the cause of the black eye. when i asked whether he would believe it was a racquetball injury, he laughed
no surprise, a job offer was not forthcoming

that said, the thing i most regret at a political function was refusing to shake the outstretched hand of Hubert Humphrey when he visited my college while on the campaign trail. yep, i was a jerk back then, too

Some people are assclowns...

At the same time some people while in the progress of their job cant high-5 everyone. Not to mention the high-5 was invented by Dusty Baker (and some openly gay player -- I don't recall his name) that was mid-late 70's...
