** How ridiculous can their protesting get? In a flashback they're shown protesting a wedding reception. One of the protesters was ''the bride herself''.
-->'''Milly, in bridal gown and veil:''' Hors d'oeuvres are what a whore serves!

** How ridiculous can their protesting get? In a flashback they're shown protesting a wedding reception. One of the protesters was ''the bride herself''.
-->'''Milly, in bridal gown
herself''. If that's not convincing, Ms. Cendordoll found a reason to protest ''Film/TheGreatestStoryEverTold'''',which, we remind you, is a movie ''about Jesus Christ''. (Her excuse is that it's too long and veil:''' Hors d'oeuvres are what a whore serves!dull, and therefore moviegoers will be tempted into whoring out of boredom.)

* ''Literature/{{ChristianNation}}'' sees a radical, Dominionist Christian sect seize control of the United States and stone gays, closely censor TV and radio and kill heretics.

** Estrella Partleigh and the ''Campaign For Equal Heights'' are another good Discworld example: where human beings take it upon themselves to agitate for the civil rights of Dwarfs, despite the fact Dwarfs are incredibly successful in their own right and do not need humans to advocate for them...

* In ''ComicBook/XMen'', Reverend William Stryker's entire deal is basically one big example of this. He started as a TV [[EasyEvangelism Evangelist]] that blamed mutants for the world's problems, and claiming they were the children of the devil. He started off as a protester, before becoming leader of a para-military hate-cult known as 'The Purifiers' who did this to the extreme: Outright hunting and killing mutants, and trying to 'do god's work' via mass-genocide, but was stopped before he could make an example by shooting Kitty Pryde on TV.

A character pulling Activist Fundamentalist Antics is likely to scream all the wrong slogans at all the wrong places: religious gatherings, comedy festivals, family holiday dinners, even funerals. They may well make botched attempts at EasyEvangelism or EpiphanyTherapy, only to come across as a general {{Jerkass}}. They are likely to step on all sorts of metaphorical toes, including their own as they trip over their own feet. One hallmark of this mentality is [[FeelingOppressedByTheirExistence the desire to somehow exile and/or exterminate certain types of people]]. Maybe said people [[YourNormalIsOurTaboo break taboos]] and/or [[MoralGuardians are 'immoral']], but the ''real'' issue is what they 'are' and not what they do e.g. they are the SINFUL HELL-SPAWN/children of parents who ate egg-salad sandwiches on a Tuesday IN DIRECT DEFIANCE OF GOD'S WILL. This desire to exclude or eliminate said people stems from the fact that 'their kind' is fundamentally incompatible with the Activist Fundamentalist's vision of a righteous and SmallSecludedWorld. For the same reason, they're most likely EgocentricallyReligious. Some psychologists have argued that the reason why some cultists behaving this way - so militantly, and with so much hostility - is that they are desperately trying to convince ''themselves'' of the righteousness of their cause.

Please note that this trope relies on how attitudes and behaviors are portrayed within the narrative of a work, and is thus incapable of having RealLife examples: While everyone agree that there's a lot of silly Activist Fundamentalist Antics in RealLife, there will never be a consensus on which groups are this trope and which ones are not.

* The Equalists from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' are an anti-bending group. The enemy includes: The Avatar, every last bender in existence because, you know, they're inherently evil, and possibly all non-benders who are not Equalists themselves. For extra fun, they're dupes [[spoiler:of one of the more powerful and frightening benders in the world.]]

** Averted for the most part. Any public deviance from the norm is rewarded with being shot if you're in the Imperial Guard, burned alive by the Sisters of Battle or subjected to the Inquisition's attention. However, there are those Literature/CiaphasCain deems Emperor-botherers who get in the way of the real soldiering, such as the Redemptionists.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'': the Christian Marines claim to not be a religious organization, despite the name, merely to fight for traditional values. Yet we see by the end the society they build banishes non-believers and burns heretics at the stake.
