Well... In no particular order. Here are the people I consider the worst activists and protesters ever

I could say the Westboro Baptist Church... However, they're not that stupid... what they're after is attention. They get attention
PETA is a really stupid group, not for their insane views, but their insane goals. I mean... the stuff they want to do is so unrealistic and no amount of protesting could ever make the populous support their outrageous claims4

Anti-gay marriage activists are kind of dumb, as the odds of overturning legalized same-sex marriage is impossible. They should focus on keeping their right to run their private business's the way they wish
http://www.debate.org/opinions/should-christian-bakers-be-forced-to-bake-cakes-for-gay-weddings
Because it looks like they have actual support on that issue

EVERYONE involved in the chick fil a boycott was an idiot and an attention whore... I mean... the whole incident is funny to me, it sounds like it could be an episode of south park

Does that not sound like something from a satire? I can't believe people in real life could be that comedic ally silly

The boycott agaisnt A&E over Phil Robertson was stupid on behalf of the network. I mean it... tell me that this isn't a stupid decision?A network had a show, popular due to Evangelical Christians who support the figures in the show. One of them says gay marriage is bad and quotes a bible verse... Okay...
You're A&E... is this guy harmful to your image... His show is INSANELY profitable, most of his fans are Christians and redneck wannabe's... Gays are far from the target audience... So why bother with it? If anything, his statement helped the show, because you'd face bigger boycotts if he said he was okay with gays. Hell... after they suspended him, ratings dropped, so they let him back on. They knew it was a dumb idea.

Boycott Indiana isn't stupid either.. they're cruel, sick, sadistic people who support frivalous lawsuits and seek to oppress small business's. Those people are not idiots, they're a force to fear. They're like the ADA lawyers... trash and filth... all of them. Including the wanna be #activists. I swear... we've gone from marching and having sit ins, to # symbols.

NAMBLA is not stupid... they are a serious threat. Anyone who can successfully play the victim is a threat. And trust me... if you think that pedophilia will NEVER be legal in America, you greatly over-estimate out culture

In the city next to my town there's a group called Free Bleed Campus where women who are on the same...umm....."time" get together at a random store or public place and hang out for hours and sans feminine protection just so they can leave red smudges and blood drips all over the place.

I'm not sure if it counts as crazy but sure is sick. I don't stigmatize myself over my periods but I sure as anything don't need to mess up someone else's place for attention.

The people of Occupy Wall Street. Their cause is noble but what the fuck are you going to accomplish by annoying a bunch of billionaire fat cats. It's not like they are going to start caring about the needy by watching a bunch of hippies and hipsters sitting on the steps of Wall Street.

Personaly I enjoyed the people protesting the activation of the large hadron collider because well.... they weren't particularly coherent on what it was going to do. We had people saying it was going to destroy the earth, stop time and control the minds of the population. fun times XD

That town is pretty much considered the Montana version of Los Angeles. Even Billings doesn't get these kind of weirdos and coming from a weirdo that's bad.

The only thing about their aim is what I was told by one of the spokesman which amounted to "women shouldn't have to use unnatural means to hide their body's beauty. We deserve the right to not be ashamed of our cycle and celebrate it". Somehow that translates to 'let's randomly leave gobs of our uterus on the seats at Cold Stone Creamery and act like a victim when someone points out our inside are evacuating our body."

Yeah, that's pretty much my attitude on feminism. Susan Anthony's casket has probably hit oil by now from rolling over in her grave so much.

That's a ridiculously broad brush you're painting with there.

Is NAMBLA even still a thing? I thought they were largely defunct now.

Also, pedophilia is legal in America, and rightly so: you can't punish a thought or an attraction that cannot change. The orientation is vastly different than child sexual abuse, and in fact most pedophiles aren't sex offenders, just as most sex offenders aren't pedophiles.
I won't even try to touch the issue of whether the current laws regarding AoC should be changed, but it is very sad to see a group of people hated and persecuted over something that is harmless and unchangeable: sexual orientation. It's important to keep in mind that hating this group and treating them like monsters before they even do anything will only remove incentive not to act on it.

Geeze, I'm probably already "that guy," on here, and I really hate to keep harping on this (particularly when people will only dislike me for the views), but I can't stand by and let people dump on a group for no good reason. So far as I'm aware, the primary goal on NAMBLA and organizations like it was to inform people of what it truly is to be a pedophile (rather than scary, faceless predators) to hopefully end the unjust hatred.

For activist groups I find silly: PETA tends to choose really weird battles, and people who protest against evolution being taught in schools tend to have very little idea about what evolution actually is. Free Bleeders are kinda... disturbing. I'm sure I could think of others.

NAMBLA STARTED with that as it's goal. Since then the higher ups, including the founder, have come out and rallied against ANY age of consent laws as well as trying to define what's consentual and non consentual as well as saying that non consentual is ok...as long as it doesn't leave long lasting damage. Sooooo yeah.

Truth, pedophilia is the mental attraction but NAMBLA and its supporters are trying to make it appear in a way that threatens to blur the lines between attraction and action. THAT is where the problem lies.

And with that I'm bowing out of the NAMBLA/Pedo thing. Disgusting all around and even talking about it in a logical debate makes me feel like I need a shower.

Not really a proper organisation... but recently my national football team (Northern Ireland) played a game on a Sunday and people were protesting outside the stadium due to that fact, which seems ridiculous to me. It's all good though because we won.

Westboro Baptist Church. It's people like them that make everyone think that all Christians are total bigots and completely hateful.

Why the protest? Or the same old political pushings?
