The 8 Most Ridiculously Badass Protesters Ever Photographed | Cracked.com. seriously, read this. this commentary is hilarious (and the pictures are amazing), with phrases such as:
- She looks like she’d be denied a part in a LifeAlert commercial on the grounds of frailty, and here she is Gandalfing the holy shit out of two dozen riot cops.
- Everything about this particular protester — from the fact that he so accepted being tear-gassed that he brought his own mask, to his battle-corduroys, to his plain red flag apparently proclaiming his loyalty to berserker blood rage — testifies that he has simply run out of fucks to give
- You can fight the riot cops. You can scream at them, spit in their faces, accuse them of supporting fascism, and question their morals, their motives, and the integrity of their mother’s vagina. Or you can give a giggling, psychotic finger to logic and reason, and opt instead to just pull a Dukes of Hazzard on those bastards
also, this sounds like our future if people don’t wake the eff up:
this was taken during the protests in Greece after their economy collapsed back in spring of 2010. When their government agreed to severe austerity measures that cut wages and benefits to public servants, and raised taxes on the rest of the citizens, but left the higher-ups largely untouched, the protests quickly turned into full-blown riots.
do we really want to turn into gas mask guy?
