Dictators! Dictators!

Wait, what do you call a dictatorship that is regularly elected by a majority of citizens, bound by the rule of law and held to a set of checks and balances? Oh yeah, A DEMOCRACY! Neat.

I'd call that sign hyperbole. Not really justified to call it moronic.

it looks like it says "What Part of No Don't You Dictators Understand"

It could use a question mark. And more lower-case letters...

Guys guys guys, you're missing the sign right next to it - the "KiLL the BILL" sign. The fact that KiLL and BILL are capitalized and colored differently leads me to believe that he's trying to reference Kill Bill, the Tarantino movie.

A) What does sword-fighting, kung-fu, rape, and revenge have to do with healthcare? Pretty sure the answer is "nothing" which leads to ...
B) This guy does not look like a Taratino fan, which means that his sign is based solely on the fact that he is aware that a movie called Kill Bill exists. If you think he is a Taratino fan, go back to A.

Which leads me to believe that he doesn't understand what he's referencing which doesn't means that he probably doesn't understand what he's protesting either.

The answer is obvious. Dictators don't understand any part of "no" and he would be in prison for protesting under a dictatorship.

Ok but (in reference to the caption) technically you can have a representative democratic dictatorship. The dictator has total power once elected. Likewise you can have checks and balances and constitutional restrictions (which in my opinion is the most important part of a government) without having democratic elections, e.g. a constitutional oligarchy (or even monarchy, if the judicial branch is granted power... but now we're getting rather technical).
