Determined and resolute to fully understand the political and personal ideologies of people who protest at Trump rallies, I went undercover at the San Diego Trump Rally today with members of the “Free the Nipple” movement.
My acceptance with the group came at a price of my submitting a picture of my naked breasts by email to Caroline Hou, an event coordinator for the movement at the University of California San Diego campus in La Jolla, California.
Within an hour after I submitted my picture to Hou, she replied to my email with some brief literature about their movement for equality with men in exposing their chests and an invitation to join them at the Convention Center in San Diego to protest against Donald Trump.
About two hours prior to joining roughly about 1,100 protestors at the convention center, I met with Hou and three other young women at the UC San Diego campus in Lajolla, about a 20-minute drive from the convention center.
Standing in a small room with my blouse and bra removed, an attractive sophomore who was introduced to me as Mary, painted stars on my nipples and ranted about her parents not understanding her choices in life and her broke boyfriend who thought the idea Friday night date was for her to lend him money for a 12 pack of beer and be available for him when he was inebriated enough to want to have sex.
As unnerving as it was to have a total stranger fondling my breasts and painting my nipples, I was more surprised to find myself watching Hou and the other two woman in our small group acting out their expected arrests, in a finely choreographed script.
Sensing my bewilderment, Mary explained to me that the police and protesters often confer before marches and rallies, discussing everything from the time and location of the protest to the expected size of the crowd.
“It is Hou’s and Mary’s turn to be arrested today. They are rehearsing their arrests so that they get it right.”
Get it right? Being arrested? Yes, protestors do in fact in many instances make agreements prior to their arrests on how and when they will be arrested
In a later interview with the San Diego Chief of Police Shelley Zimmerman she informed my editor that “They come to us and say, ‘these individuals are going to do this, and we understand when they do this you are going to arrest them. A lot of times, they designate a person or persons to be arrested.”
However, in some instances not everything can be mediated. After Trump held a rally in Albuquerque, N.M., on Tuesday, demonstrators hurled rocks, flaming T-shirts, and bottles at the police. At least four people were arrested in the New Mexico protest.
Zimmerman stressed that police are determined to prevent similar outbursts in San Diego.
“We will not tolerate any unlawful behavior,” the chief said, promising to halt violence with “swift and decisive action.”
It seems very odd to me for protesters and police to cooperate, especially when the former defy the latter with acts of civil disobedience. Yet, I learned today that both parties often enjoy benefits to these types of asinine arrangements.
During the drive from the Lajolla to the convention center in downtown San Diego, I casually inquired with Sarah, Hou’s co-actress, why she was so angry at Trump that she was heading to a protest and her later arrest.
“I don’t care about who wins the election. Trump is as good as an excuse as any for us to make our point.”
“I don’t want to go to jail but it is a small price to pay for millions of people to see my tits on television. We all have to pay the price eventually, I mean the other girls have to take their turns too,” said Sarah.
In further questioning Sarah, it became highly apparent to me that she did not fully understand the ‘point’ she was going to the protest to allegedly make.
“Men can take their shirts off anywhere – what is the big deal about our going topless anyway? I don’t want to be a housewife – ruin my body to have two or three babies for some man – this is my chance – our chance to be discovered.
Honey, when you show your tits to the world you may be given a leading part in a movie next week – you never know, do you?”
Armed with a can of pepper spray tucked between my ass cheeks, head swimming and my nipples sore from the paint – yes that crap is uncomfortable, cold and wondering what the hell I was getting myself in to, we all arrived at the protest.
A million things raced through my mind as I walked in to the crowd, expecting to be felt up and ogled by every man and pervert in the crowd – possibly becoming a rape victim – yet to my surprise and a shot to my pride, my naked breasts and what many men have told me is a perfect ass barely covered by shorts which left nothing but the can of pepper spray to the imagination, nobody was really paying any attention to my new found cohorts and me.
Oh don’t get me wrong, we definitely turned a few heads, but like Mary’s boyfriends obvious attraction to beer verses her 34 C cup breasts and a size 4 perfectly toned body, the crowd of our fellow protestors were more concerned with rehearsing their acts than checking out our half naked bodies.
I spent four hours today speaking with many protestors at the rally. I talked with numerous people with numerous causes that neither I nor arguably anyone else had ever heard of; most of the same had very little idea of what they disliked about Donald Trump.
Many people I talked with confided with me that they were at the rally because they did not ‘have anything better to do.”
Others told me that they were at the rally because they were being paid to be there.
Alarmingly, I talked with many who were at the rally because they wanted to hit someone and or destroy something.
Many people I talked with did a pretty good job of trying to convince me they had come to protest some ridiculous cause, but in observing them, it was extremely obvious that like my half naked cohorts, they had come to the rally for their chances at 15-30 seconds of televised fame and hopefully fortune from the same.
The people I did meet that actually were at the rally to protest Trump were very well informed and expressed some differences in their political stances than those of Trump.
However, if the actual protestors had been separated from the rest of the crowd, the crowd of 1,100 protestors would have been reduced to less than 50 people.
Tired, embarrassed and shocked at todays interesting revelations of acting like a half naked political protester, I walked away from the crowd to find a Yellow cab with a tanned hottie awaiting his next fare.
Shamefully, I have to admit that it felt wonderful to notice him ogling my physical attributes while offering to buy me dinner and take me home to make me desert.
I believe that I will take him up on that offer, leaving my editor Brian to sift through my notes and write this story.

Trust me folks, in consideration of how attractive Brenda is, the protestors at the Trump Rally today must of been blind if they could find something other to do than ogle her.
