1. movement

A movement starts with just one person, consider being that one person. It has been that way since the beginning of time and is one of those things that will always be.

4. be this guy

seen it before and it resonates a lot.

HOWEVER, it would not surprise me one bit if his act of Nazi defiance made for some hard prison or concentration camp time shortly after this photo was taken.

Nazi's really did the totalitarian fascist police state to the violent hilt in their heyday.

So, fellow DU'ers, exercise what's left of your Constitutional Rights to free speech before it's too late!

5. Do that here and you get pummeled.

There is a LOT of bullying on this site. Thankfully a lot of Democrats are distinctly not followers. But they are relentlessly smeared and accosted for speaking up here.

11. Cyberbullying does not exist here

 



I have brought he issue to the owners, ostriches are more open to the concept with their heads in a hole.

There are solutions they could implement beyond punishing the victims. One easily could be automatic mutual auto ignores. That ain't gonna happen, cause it des not exist. Some have even graduated to cyberstalking by the way.

15. The MBTA already had that campaign going in Boston before the bombing

My point is that people here generally have a tendency to be uneasy about that message.

16. It comes from NY Mass Transit Authority

I'm sure you're aware of several bombings in the past few years of mass transit systems in Europe. I think it's a good idea to raise awareness among those who use similar services, to look for back packs, or other suspicious packages that are unattended. I understand what you're saying, but this sign isn't the greatest of examples.

17. I know where it's from

They have radio ads quite frequently on WCBS and WFAN too.

I'm not against the concept at all. If I saw an individual leave a large bag on a platform or sidewalk, I would do something as well. My point is a more existential one that a similar statement to the op in a different context is often derided here as fascist or, funny enough, "Orwellian" which I agree is silly.
