2008 How to Piss Off Liberal Protesters

While our commenters debate what a liberal should wear to an anti-Bush protest, here’s a guy who clearly knew what an incendiary conservative should wear to (and bring to, and say at) an anti-Bush protest.
Meet Russell Johnson, 21, of Seattle.
This afternoon in Bellevue, he and his young friends were sending lefty protesters into fits.
The sign says, “Stop Global Whining.” Here are his friends:
These guys look like a parody of what liberals think conservatives really feel, but they’re not doing parody. Johnson, for one, is completely serious. He’s a student at Vanguard University in California, an Assemblies of God school where he’s getting a “Masters of Arts in Leadership Studies.”
When the protesters told Johnson that Bush was a war criminal, he told them to “stop smoking medical marijuana.” As people confronted him with their “Impeach Bush” signs and slogans, he told me dismissively: “‘Impeach Bush’ has lost its glamor. It’s lost its pizazz.”
In case you couldn’t guess: Russell is a huge fan of Bush (“Jesus Christ is my favorite philosopher, too,” he says), he’s a big supporter of Dave Reichert, and he’s a proud member of King County’s MoveRed.org.
