Baldilocks has a great link to a high school student's article on his high school political campaign "Protest Warrior". Basically, he formed a group to print and post political flyers in his high school. The flyers themselves are pretty funny - "End the Arab Occupation of Jewish Land", "America, how can we concentrate on pushing the Jews into the sea while you wage your racist war against our people" and a lot of pointed parodies of the usual leftist agitprop - but the interesting bits are his descriptions of the disruptions and rage that the postings invoked, and the accompanying photographs of said chaos. Lots of yelling, screaming, accusations of racism, and cries of oppression. In the end he didn't get to re-post the flyers, but one hell of a point was made.
