Slogans for Protest Signs

Post by Maddy » Thu Jul 23, 2020 12:46 pm

I'm going to my fourth rally this year to protest the curtailment of our civil liberties and the expansion of the authoritarian state. The focus will be everything from mandatory masks and vaccines to the killing of small business, the attack on the constitution, the abdication of the rule of law, and the rise of the technocratic state. I've committed to making 6 or 7 signs, and after having made more than 40 already in advance of previous rallies, I'm short on ideas.

Could I pick you'all's brains for some short but effective slogans that I could put on signs?

"I prefer dangerous freedom to peaceful slavery."

"My constitutional rights are essential."

"My body, my choice."

"Fear is the real virus."

"Give me Liberty or give me Covid 19."

Those are a few that came to mind.

I like that one

Abolish ICE
A constitutionalist like me would say that it's the province of Congress to make immigration law, and the duty of the executive to enforce it.

Abolish DHS
Absolutely. And a whole lot of other agencies.

End Qualified Immunity
I can get with that

End Civil Asset Forfeiture
Definitely--an important due process issue

ACAB
Don't know what that means

Accountability for Killer Cops
We don't see much of that around here; the sheriffs are our friends and neighbors. They treat the community well and get a lot of respect for that.

That's going to end well. We already don't have enough jobs for our low-skilled workers. Let's just let a whole bunch more into our country. What could go wrong?

If you are going to be dealing with Antifa thugs, I think they could use some advice right now that is straight out of the 60's - Make Love Not War

No Antifa thugs expected. Protests around here tend to have the feel of an old-fashioned picnic after church. There is, however, one old coot who tends to show up in a g-string and a cowboy hat. Not much that can be done about that.

How about the old standby:
"Legalize Freedom"
Another nod to the most beautiful equation: e + 1 = 0

Our freedom (or liberty, your choice) is more important than your good ideas.
