    “Can you say ‘a couple dozen’… it sounds less pathetic”


  2. - The Drummer - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:30 pm:

    “Hey hey!
    Ho ho!
    Social distance Yes!
    Masks no!”


  3. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:30 pm:

    Outside? Check.

    Proper distancing? Check.

    If they keep this up they won’t need to worry about mask mandates.


  4. - AlfondoGonz - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:31 pm:

  7. - Dance Band on the Titanic - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:35 pm:

    - Leap Day William -
    “There are dozens of us! DOZENS!!!!”

    In order to use the plural of dozen, there needs to be at least two dozen. Based on that shot, they’re not even close to that.


  8. - Grandson of Man - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:35 pm:

    The ILGOP base shows up in almost full force.


  9. - Dance Band on the Titanic - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:36 pm:

    “We are here for our one-on-one meetings with the Senate Republicans.”


  10. - Norseman - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:38 pm:

    We’re supported in spirit by tons more. Just check the last IDPH COVID report.


  11. - PublicServant - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:40 pm:

    Anti-Mask demonstrators, all 16 of them, point to unmasked Honest Abe statue as proof of his endorsement.


  12. - Excitable Boy - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:42 pm:

    “Seems like there used to be more of us, I wonder what happened?”


  13. - JoanP - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:44 pm:

    Group spokesperson denies that they are social distancing due to COVID. “It’s because we believe bathing is a choice, and some of us choose not to.”


  14. - Dotnonymous - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:44 pm:

    I’m tellin’ you we came out…by the dozen…yep.


  15. - The Real Captain - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:45 pm:

    Cowboy hat - Yes
    American Flag - Yes
    Socially Distant - yes
    Masks - NO!!!!


  16. - Ron Burgundy - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:47 pm:

    “Maybe the free horse paste lunch isn’t the draw that we thought it would be…”


  17. - IllinoisBoi - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:50 pm:

    That just don’t make no sense.


  18. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:52 pm:

    “They can spread out as much as they like… sidewalk doesn’t vote, people do”


  19. - Better Than Plumb - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:52 pm:

    Come on, Darwin. Do your thing.


  20. - Austinman - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 1:52 pm:

    Sad just sad…. looks like a super minority


  21. - JS Mill - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:01 pm:

    “we’re going streaking…c’mon everybody…there’s more coming”

    NSFW-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20g3QIUnOgY


  22. - Give Me A Break - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:01 pm:

  23. - Henry - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:03 pm:

    Loserpalooza ‘21


  24. - Ron Burgundy - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:05 pm:

    Protester with “Freedom to Choose” sign at mask protest keeps a detachable “No” sign in trunk for Roe v. Wade events.


  25. - Mama - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:07 pm:

    ==Mask? We Don’t Need No Stinking Masks===

    If you think cloth mask is bad, wait until your ventilator mask and then your forever oxygen mask.


  26. - Ron Burgundy - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:11 pm:

    “It is sad and unfortunate we have so many people willing to comply” says person who believes people dead from excessive use of force wouldn’t be dead if only they had complied.


  27. - BlueBin - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:12 pm:

    Laugh at them all you want, but that group has a combined IQ of 200, which exceeds that of Stephen hawking.


  28. - Jocko - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:12 pm:

    The upside down American flag says it all.

    To paraphrase Lee Elia, “99% of the world is working. The other 15 come out here.”


  29. - Wensicia - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:13 pm:

    “We were expecting more people, but they’re currently hospitalized..or dead.”


  30. - Give Me A Break - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:13 pm:

    Mama, that is a movie quote, not my opinion. LOL


  31. - here we go - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:14 pm:

    What’s “sad and unfortunate” is these people equate courage with spreading the virus.


  32. - Cheryl44 - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:18 pm:

    You know those people you have to invite to the party even though you don’t like them? These are those people.


  33. - Bruce( no not him) - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:19 pm:

    actually looks like they are doing a fine job. You really don’t need masks outdoors and socially distanced. Not sure why they’re complaining. S/


  34. - thisjustinagain - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:28 pm:

    News Anchor: “Springfield LoserFest 2021 kicked off today at the capitol, as locals celebrated their right to deny reality….”


  35. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:29 pm:

    Oh…

    A “Thoughts and Prayers” Circle.


  36. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:30 pm:

    If you look at this picture objectively, look at how many objects… signs, props, flags, costumes… who says grifting doesn’t work.


  37. - Steve Rogers - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 2:35 pm:

    Thomas Paine with the win.


  46. - Dotnonymous - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 3:27 pm:

    They seem to be in need of remedial grift work in the form of a T.G. Devore workshop?

    Doesn’t T.G. fit…just right?


  47. - Dotnonymous - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 3:31 pm:

    T.G. DeVore is no P.T. Barnum…however.


  48. - Medvale School for the Gifted. - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 3:31 pm:

    Rebels without a clue.

    Million Man March, meet the Dozen Doofus Display.


  50. - Henry Francis - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 3:46 pm:

    These folks are so dumb the protestor with the microphone can’t even walk and talk at the same time.


  51. - Amalia - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 4:45 pm:

    Freedom to die.


  52. - G'Kar - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 5:10 pm:

    Lincoln statue is thinking: “Well, you really can fool some of the people all of the time.”


  53. - Quizzical - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 6:18 pm:

    But if you had to choose just one, would you say “sad” or “unfortunate”?


  54. - zatoichi - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 8:27 pm:

    Not exactly the most inspiring crowd I have seen at that space. High school band car washes do better.


  55. - CubsFan16 - Tuesday, Aug 31, 21 @ 9:45 pm:

    At a glance at this post I thought they were socially distancing in the video until I just realized there aren’t that many people.
