Turd Reich: San Francisco Dog Owners Lay Minefield of Poo for Right-Wing Rally | The Guardian

Crissy Field San Francisco
Written by Chester

We dogs bring out the best in everyone, especially creative activists. If the Nazis bring their canines to the rally today, they’ll have a field day!

What…? The rally was cancelled?

Well… poop. That’s no fun. I was willing to donate my business.

“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 right-wing 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.”

Tuffington, a 45-year-old artist and designer, created a Facebook event page based on the concept, and the dog owners of San Francisco responded in droves. Many have declared their intention to stockpile their shit-piles for days in advance, then deliver them in bags for the site. (The group is also planning to reconvene on Sunday to “clean up the mess and hug each other”.)”

Yes, everyone was ready for the big event. Then the Patriot Prayer organizers cancelled the rally. They said, due to “public safety” issues.

We better go to Crissy Field today, anyway — to help Tuffy Tuffington clean up!

    • Yes, Jill, I’d be honored. That is, if you still want to re-blog it a day later. It isn’t quite as timely. I am sorry I didn’t see your comment until today.

      • That’s wonderful, Jill. But… I cannot find the re-blog button setting under Sharing. I have the Business account now, so… maybe… something is different…

        I typically use Press This to reblog, which is found under Tools in Admin.

        Press This is nice and easy. If you want, you can save as a draft, and set your category, tags, auto-sharing, etc. before publishing.

        Have a great week!

  • LOL!! Usually I’m all for the pooper scooper laws but since they give shit then they should be able to take shit!! Ha! Ha!! This post made my day. Even my cat Sylvester approves this post. Dang! I’d contribute the contents of his Litter Box if I lived in S.F. :) :D

    • Exactly, Dancing! Tell Sylvester that all paws are welcome to a good cause. There may be poop up to our chins, but we’re in it together.

    • John, the rally would have been so much fun!… and, of course, civic-minded. We might have gotten through to the Nazis’ dogs — with a few really good strong smells! (Their humans? I’m not sure.)
