  •  Why just figuratively. Why not have (electronic) (0+ / 0-)

    torches and (soft foam) pitchforks?

      I think decent people having real torches and pitchforks (with obvious safety precautions, of course) in their demonstrations as a symbolic gesture isn't some kind of horrendous thing.

      •  Well, using a LED light instead of an actual flame (1+ / 0-)

        would make the torches last much longer and it is pretty easy to make foam look like metal from a distance.  You wouldn't want another protester to back into you and get skewered by a metal pitchfork after all.
