Wow: Prankster Gets People to Sign Petition for a More Orwellian, ‘Nazi-Like’ Police State

Sometimes people sign prank petitions because they don’t quite understand what the petition is about, as in the infamous dihydrogen monoxide hoax. But one prankster in San Diego was amazed to find that so many people were willing to sign a petition that was out-and-out attempting to institute an Orwellian police state in the United States.

Political prankster Mark Dice takes great pains to let people know he is asking them to sign a petition for the “Nazi-style police state” and an “Orwellian system.” It’s rather horrifying to see people signing a petition even as Dice is patiently explaining to them why he wants a system modeled after Nazi Germany.

Dice has previously pranked people with a petition asking them to “repeal the Bill of Rights.”
