5 Funny Ways to Protest the NSA

  • 2 of 2

4. Creating a Parody Website


Last year, an anonymous webmaster used the existing information he could find on the NSA to create a parody site designed to mimic a government webpage. The traffic to the page was minimal, but once Edward Snowden leaked critical information about the NSA, more people have been curious to see a proper skewering of the agency.

Unintentionally, the site has managed to fool some people into thinking it’s the real deal, due in part to its subtle approach to humor. The site purports the NSA’s motto is “If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to hear” and justifies that its actions are constitutional “thanks to top-secret Fourth Amendment exceptions allowed by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.”

5. Holding Signs

Finally, there’s always the old-fashioned approach to humorous protesting: witty signs! Buzzfeed compiled some of its favorites from anti-domestic spying rallies this year and they’re sure to give you a chuckle.

Prank calling is a wrong way to protest!
But some other ways are good.

Since the NSA has all my information anyway, I think they should be required to restore my computer the next time it crashes.

Funny how people laugh when its getting serious just shows how helpless they feel because of their past inaction.
