No, your bike is an inanimate object it can not posses an intelligence level. It's owner, however, is a different story.

But would you laugh if you saw me riding this downtown?

Why not just attatch some sheet plastic to the rear triangle and put the bumper stickers there?

Yes I would be like: "hm that's peculiar." I don't think you would see me with one on my bike.

Is that a mountain mountain bike or a city mountain bike?

Whatever you do, don't ride it like that on a trail or else you'd definitely be scorned. Having things (red clips) that can fall off and be dangerous to the riders behind you or litter the trail ain't cool.

Its made for mountain, but I ride city, and some local trails.

I removed the clips, and used the spokes to hold them.

Then in that case, it's hella cool.

I'm the type that always likes to make a statement if it fits. And that, fits.

We used to do that something like that with playing cards so they would sound like a motorcycle as the card slapped against the spokes.

no, but the clips holding your "spoke cards" on do

edit: thought the question was, "does this mtb make me look stupid?"

so the answer now is just, "yes."

It was all about the noise. Bugging the neighborhood and causing crap. It's what you do at age 8.

Yeah, they need a better location. They cannot be read when they are mounted on the wheels when you are rolling.

...only to the extent that, while some of the things I enjoy about cycling may be based in politics, I still don't believe in politicizing cycling. It's probably the one pure thing I have in my life right now, and I have no desire to make it any more complicated than sitting on the saddle and spinning the cranks.
