Gentleman has difficulty destroying an anti-fascism sign

A proud young gentleman was triggered by an anti-fascism sign in the streets of Seattle. He decided the best course of action was to tear the big bad sign into tiny pieces so it couldn't scare him any more. But try as he might, he lacked the strength to accomplish his goal. A crowd of jeering onlookers heckled him, which caused him further distress. In the end, he folded the sign and skulked away.
