Westboro Baptist Church, a group with a history of staging protests at funerals and issuing anti-gay statements, is planning to picket the Saturday funeral of Elizabeth Edwards.
Lately, decent Americans have been peacefully counter-protesting this hate group by blocking their signs with large American flags.
Peacefully counter-potesting my ass. Mrs. Edwards was a class act and doesn't deserve this treatment by the Westboro Haters.
Note to the bikers that kept this bunch away from some military funerals: take off the biker garb, show up in cars, and beat the crap outta these assholes.
See Montag's and Bustednuckles' takes.
Wow. Us usually normal people are gettin' right up off the peace, love, dope, rainbows, and unicorns shit over this. And rightly so.
Update the Twoth:
From El Rude-o:
Note to Conservative Christians: Your God Is Kind of a Dick
He lays into 'em for a variety of things, but on the Westboro assholes:
1. In its increasing effort to be America's most-loathed inbred idiots, the piles of shit from the Westboro Baptist have declared that, like fags, God also hates Elizabeth Edwards and, as a result, said piles of shit will be protesting her funeral on Saturday. To teach the Edwards family a lesson, according to the inbreds, God killed their child: "When they were visited from the Most High God with the death of their 16-year-old son, they did not humble themselves before His mighty hand." Since we're just making shit up about what a fictional character thinks, how about this: God wants the Westboro Baptist Church to commit mass suicide in order to demonstrate how much they love him. The next move is yours, Phelps family.
(You know, as long as the CIA is targeting U.S. citizens for assassination, could we just thin the herd around here a bit? No one would even notice.)
Well, we might notice a slight uptick in peace and quiet.
Like Nucks said in his post, I could do this shit all day. The day is young...
