Talk about a Nazi surprise – when a group of far-right activists rally in San Francisco this weekend, they may find something unpleasant underfoot.

Namely, a lot of dog mess – as activists plan to turn the venue for right-wing protest group Patriot Prayer’s rally into a ‘minefield’ of dog waste.

Some dog owners admit to ‘stockpiling’ waste all week in advance of the event, after a Facebook Event asked for contributions.

The page says, ‘Leave a gift for our Alt-Right friends. Take your dog to Crissy Field and let them do their business and be sure not to clean it up! Watch out for landmines, friends!

Thousands are expected to descend on San Francisco’s Crissy Field for what’s being called a Patriot Prayer Rally and counter-demonstrations. Among them are four Sacramentan’s who spoke with KCRA 3 News. They’re going for different reasons, but all feel it’s important to be there despite the risk of violence.

Previous events held by Patriot Prayer have sparked street violence.

Local designer Tuffy Tuffington, 45, told The Guardian he came up with the idea while walking his two terriers.

A permit has been officially issued for the right-wing “Patriot Prayer” rally at Crissy Field this Saturday. San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee is urging residents to ignore the planned demonstration and instead attend a “peaceful gathering” at Civic Center Plaza.

Tuffington said, ‘I just had this image of alt-right people stomping around in the poop.

‘It seemed like a little bit of civil disobedience where we didn’t have to engage with them face to face.
