This actually happened in an Underground station in London.

There were protesters on the concourse handing out pamphlets on the evils of Britain.
An elderly woman was getting off the escalator and a young (20-ish) female protester offered her a pamphlet, which she politely declined.
The young protester put her hand on the woman‘s shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice said, Madam, don't you care about the children of Iraq
The elderly woman looked up at her and said,
‘My dear, my father died in France during World War II, I lost my husband ín Korea and my grandson in Afghanistan.'
All three died so you could have the right to stand here and bad mouth our country. If you touch me again, I'll stick this umbrella up your bottom and open it.'
God Bless Great Britain and those who appreciate their freedom.
