Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

A right-wing protester subtly crashed MSNBC’s coverage of Hillary Clinton’s Iowa visit Tuesday — but he might have done his various causes a disservice, considering the noticeable spelling and grammar errors on his massive sign.

As MSNBC reporter Joy Reid spoke with a Kirkwood Community College student, a man appeared in the background with a sign saying on one side: “Democrates [sic] Mistakes / Gay Marriage vs. Children / Slavery vs. Blacks.” On the other side, it said: “Childs [sic] Right / Mom & Dad / No Gay Marriage.”

In what could have been a great cinematic sight gag, Reid and the student did not acknowledge the man’s presence behind them — even as a drama played out in which various parties arrived, possibly asking the man to get out of the shot.

Who knows, maybe he was actually referring to the obscure ancient Greek philosopher, Democrates — but we doubt it.

The man first appears in the video below at about the 5:00 mark.

        Always entertaining to post on this site. I just can’t believe all of the tolerance here.

        No doubt, the very same people who hate Obamacare but like the ACA.
        The same one’s who show up with signs, “Keep your hands off my Medicare” but want less government in their lives.
        And they aren’t Democrates… 🙂

        • TheSkalawag929

          Right on all counts.

    What a stupid fool that old geezer is. He was probably home schooled by some baptist preacher.

    Who cares about the sign? There will always be morons. Apparently the Democrates and Gay Marriage have had a direct and negative impact on his life to the point that he got out out his Sharpie and made himself a sign to show the world.
    Hillary’s message is what’s important.
