Hello folks! You know I wouldn’t let you down in these WTF?! times.
Here are some great responses when those ‘fine people on both sides’ go out on a walkathon for a day. Enjoy.
See what some folk did in response to a march held every year to celebrate the ‘dead loser’ (Arnold Schwarzeneggers words) Rudolf Hess.
2. See what some folks came up with for another march featuring 2 sets of clowns.
3. He he! Possibly my favourite….although the clown one is up there. This guy turned up with a sousaphone to play these fine people along in their march with suitable lumbering music for the slow witted.
What Say You?
Do you have a favourite?
Do you think these are better responses than fighting?
What are your views on Trump’s response to the Charlottesville rally and should the sousaphone man be hired to follow him around the world…or not?

As an afterthought I would vote for the clowns, but there already is an one in the WH.
And orange at that.
Was that Wagner played around the 50th second? Walkyrie? 🙂 (Or the flying Dutchman?)
Good to see you back Rebecca. I was wondering whether all was all right or maybe you were on vacation? (Pray tell)
Yours ever, Alastair.
Walkyrie eh? I see what you did there! Lol.
I think I’ll leave the praying and just tell you, been doing those other projects I’m always on about! Too busy dear Simon! Too busy!
Quite the busy girl aren’t you, Anaïs? Let us know how you fare on those.
Lol. I’m way too weird to be that normal and do that.
I know, I know. Please do not get therapy.
Ha ha! 😀
I’m Jewish and named after a relative who died with her 11 children in Auschwitz. I am soooooooooo over hate. Why can’t we all just get along. If all the folks who hated took their hate of others(really hate of themselves-inside out) and did some work on themselves then wouldn’t this world be an easier news watching place to be in. I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo over it. Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well said my lady.
My compliments ma’am. 🙂
I loved the clown one.. put a smile and gave the mesaage.
Regarding Trump every one knew how he was as a business man how he made his billions yet a majority chose him. So the Americans knew what they were getting into.
Good luck to them all…
Yeah but being extended practically unlimited credit isn’t the same as making billions! And yeah I love the clown one too! 🙂
I think the idea of turning a nasties march into a fund raising walk-a-thon was brilliant. They even painted “Start” and “Finish” strips on the pavement, had “refreshment” stands and cheered the finishers with confetti. They also raised over 10,000 Euros.
I know right Steve? Genius! 🙂
I vote for the clowns. Definitely.
Send them in! (Is this too British a ref for this American Britisher I wonder).
And in Sondheim? That’s American.
The very same. I always think of it as Brit thing. You’ll have to pardon my ignorance was this song and associated plays big in the US / Broadway?
I think that they are all better responses than fighting. I love the clowns. It is worth noting, though, that the (original) Nazi’s were a Left-wing organization. Neither side of the aisle has a lock on hate.
Is that so? Didn’t know that!
‘Nazi’ stands for the National Socialists. The name is (of course) in German and I’m not up to finding it, but look it up.
Oh now you say that it’s ringing a bell… one of those things that sit in the back of your head and you forget you knew.
I’d question this. Heavily. They used the word “socialist” in their name, but they were very much right wing.
I forgot to say, the clowns up my favourite.
Yay! 😀 Lol. Mine too….well… and sousaphone man.
These are fantastic and clearly more effective. I deeply dislike Trump and his views but I agree with him that there was violence on both sides and violence, no matter your cause, only begets violence.
Interested… of course you are right that violence begets violence but the opposing side would not have been there had it not been for the marchers who arrived tooled up. I also heard that they were not even permitted to march?
Should bigots be bigged up / made excuses for by a president? If you allow people with guns and weapons to roam the streets threatening people is it a surprise to Trump that others might counter that threat and in countering that illegal(?) threat does that then make the 2 sides equal?
My point being that ‘there was violence on both sides’ seems such a weak thing for a president to highlight in a day of abusive racists marching with guns and weapons? What say you Lady?
You’re definitely right that the President shouldn’t be making excuses for bigots and xenophobes. It was an unnecessary point to make at the time, especially given the tragic events that had occurred.
It’s the old, two wrongs don’t make a right, conundrum. You cannot call yourself a non-violent person if you use violence, attack police officers and carry weapons. Regardless of your reasons for marching, no matter how good they are, you cannot stoop to the level of those you oppose and still claim the moral high ground.
Maybe that’s why these innovative protests against white-radicals are so effective – they not only make a mockery of the bigots cause, they rise above the bigots and their violent rhetoric.
Okay, yes nicely put LMW. Remember how Ghandi and MLK would just let opponents (and police) knock 7 bells out of them? not sure I could do that though!
As much as Trump does and says horrible things, it doesn’t shock me anymore. He’s always been like this.
Sorry! I thought my comments hadn’t gone through,lol
I guessed as much lol!
Thank you for making me smile and laugh out loud. I sorely needed a bit of sanity today. Rather surprised it was delivered by clowns 🙂
Send in the clowns! You are most welcome, I loved the clowns too! 🙂
I think that as horrible as what Trump does or says, it doesn’t shock me at the same time either. He’s always been like that, it’s not like it’s something new.
Interesting…I think it’s been an eye opener for many who perhaps should have done their research Lolsy!
“Hatred cannot drive out hatred” – but creativity, love and laughter have got a pretty good shot at it.
Pretty much DM! Plus it’s more fun! 🙂
