There are some headlines that just beg to clicked.  I admit it.  I clicked on “Turd Reich: San Francisco dog owners lay minefield of poo for rightwing rally,” which begins:

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 shit. Lots and lots of dog shit.

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.”

That’s courageous.  I mean, if American free speech means anything, it means being able to leave your dogs feces on the ground while you hide behind a tree and giggle like a teenage girl.  (Sorry, American teenage girls – I know you’d have the guts to actually express your opinion in a more forthright manner.)

Remember when I wrote about how Denver City Council voted to decriminalize a whole host of very disgusting activities — including defecating and urinating in public?  Click here for the disgusting details.  Why does the left believe freedom is so indelibly linked to excrement?

After the rally, the group planned to go back to the scene of the “protest”  to clean up the mess and to “hug each other.”  The Guardian reports:

There will also be contingents of clownskayakerscars, and kids – all hoping to use their particular strengths (humor, seaworthiness, the ability to monopolize parking spaces, and cuteness, respectively) to thumb their noses at hate.

“You have a significant number of people who would like to go and punch Nazis, and then you have people who think they should be entirely ignored,” said veteran labor and LGBTQ rights activist Cleve Jones. “In between you have all sorts of creative and crazy ideas. I kind of like that.”

Remember when San Francisco was world famous for being a place of love? Now, it’ll be famous for excrement.  I guess we can be thankful that they’re finally showing their true selves and that everyone can see that intolerance — truly — stinks.
