There are times when the best way to get a point across at a protest is to pull at the heartstrings of the recipients. Whether that means getting them to see your point of view or making them see the hypocrisy of their ways – it really depends on the situation. For real.
But this is one scenario where the alternative might not be so bad, after all. Sure, there are plenty of people out there who are against same-sex marriage. But they might start to change their tune a little when they find out who their daughters might end up marrying.
No Means No
Sometimes, all it takes to make a point at a protest is to write the least number of words imaginable. And sometimes, all it takes is one word to say everything. In fact, we would go as far as to say that all protests can be condensed into one unifying word. That’s right, folks. That word happens to start with “N” and end with an “O.”
Seeing all of these NOs flying above a sea of hands is a pretty powerful image if we do say so ourselves. We just hope that all of those nos actually made a difference. And if they didn’t, maybe the protesters could’ve been a little bit more imaginative.
A One-Man Protest
Every so often, there comes a man who knows exactly what he wants. When you order some sizzling-hot fajitas at your favorite neighborhood restaurant, you'll also get a number of tortillas, but the number is never enough. Well, one person isn't going to stand for it any longer.
It doesn't matter what the protest used to be about; this sign has just taken control. More tortillas! More tortillas! It doesn't matter how many you get at first; keep them coming! Here's a rally that we can finally get behind – no longer will we have to fill those few tortillas with so much filling that it spills out the sides!
A True Trump Card
There is no denying that Donald Trump was arguably one of the most controversial presidents of all time. At the very least, he was certainly one of the most memeable. And to take things one step further, he has been one of the easiest presidents to make fun of, whether that be online, at work, or even at a protest.
These protesters found it very easy to make jokes about the “fake news” businessman. And one of them does make a good point. After all, the majority of Trump’s wives have been women who were born outside of the US.
What a Reference
The whole point of protest signs is to get your point across as clearly and as emphatically as possible. But if you are beating around the bush and a little wishy-washy with your language, you are not going to make that much of an impact at the protest.
Instead, you could just make people laugh with a half-baked statement. Take this guy(not the policeman, though upon first glance, it does look like he is the one who is holding up the sign), for example: he made a reference to the British sitcom “Father Ted” at a protest in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
