The bastards are coming here to Virginia Tech tomorrow, too. The counter-protest looks to be around 2,500 people, and will be held somewhere else in an attempt to draw the media away from them (and prevent a riot, I’m sure).
I’m thinking a fun documentary would be getting together as many yarmulke wearing Jews, kefiyah wearing Arabs, pinko Castro neighborhood of SF gay dudes, some butchy lesbians, some priests and nuns, and as many Unitarians and pot smoking tie dyed hippie types and stage a massive protest in front of their HQ. Film the whole thing.
It’d be hilarious. The only problem is it requires going to the backwoods outhouse third world microcosm Fred Phelps lives in.
There’ve been counter protests at their protests…but nobody seems to have brought it home to these bastards yet.
When JadeGold aka Guy Cabot was harassing me and posting some pretty lurid, offensive, personal stuff on my blog and on other blogs…nothing made him go away faster than linking to a Google Earth picture of his house.
Exposing assholism to sunshine seems the best method of hastening its departure.
The Westboro bunch left Scott County pretty fast when they showed up for the cheerleaders’ memorial service, and were faced by a lot of very unhappy local folks. Eventually, they will encounter a group that shows less restraint.
They are holding a protest at University of South Florida on April 19th against a holocaust remembrance. Fellow students are beginning to organize a counter protest. I’m joining because correct me if I’m wrong these are the same guys who protest the military funerals.
Here is the link to the facebook group if you want to check it out.
Standard M, thanks for spreading the truth! A friend from Kansas explained the Phelps racket to me a while back. Too bad Phelps’ sheep are too stupid to realize that spreading hate with an eye toward profit is anti-Christian.
“Redneck” refers to a sunburned neck. Coal miners. Hmmm …
That’s one version. The other version is that all non-union miners would wear red bandannas to identify themselves. Also, not all coal miners work aboveground. Most processing and support goes on “up above.”
