Once again, I think you are hugely exaggerating the number of people who attend a protest for laughs. Indeed, when I was at the EU referendum protest, there was a distinct absence of giggly crowds of teenagers who didn't seem to know what they were doing there. This might surprise you but most people who don't care about an issue won't actually be willing to spend a day of their life standing outside for it. And I'm really not exactly sure what you're calling for. Do you want there to be some exam that everyone has to sit before taking part in a protest to make sure that they adhere to your standard of being properly informed before being allowed to protest?
I'm not saying that they shouldn't protest, It's a free country they can do whatever they want, all I'm saying is that it's annoying seeing those kind of people there as my title suggests, and I have to disagree with you on the amount, I doubt that the number is actually as little as you think, a quick google search of people protesting Donald trump would find that nearly half of the people who were screaming couldn't mention any basic facts about him or his policies, and even the people who managed to say something were just beating around the bush.
Like I said, right now I can't bring any official stats to prove it, but I'll definitely conduct the research as I'm sure 50% of people who go to protests only do it because their friends told them to.
Doesn't it annoy you when you see protesters filming themselves protesting
