The "counter-protester" throngs

I was in DC as well this weekend, and everywhere I look, people are either up in arms about the counter-protesters, or up in arms about the overreporting of the counter-protesters. Everyone calm down just a little bit... these are the guys we're dealing with here:

Okay? Not a serious threat, my friends. And they were the only two I saw.

The overkill of these guys was priceless, though. Mix in a little machismo, some groin-holsters for signs, the biggest American phallic symbol of all time, and sprinkle in some latent homosexuality... you get these guys. The kicker? The other side of the machine gun sign said, "Jesus Loves America." Oh, and phallic overkill, too.
