Schildbürger (see also "Wise Men of Gotham") refers to a special group of (mainly right wing) protesters. With their handcrafted protest signs and slogans they are convinced to have an answer for the urgent problems in the world. These signs pretend to know it better but in many cases they just reveal the foolish character of the protesters itself.
