Here are some protesters who know how to handle the insane folks from Topeka, Kansas’ Westboro Baptist Church. Westboro Baptist is the home of rabidly anti-gay, anti-Catholic, anti-Jew, Anti-Muslim, anti-Protestant, anti-soldier, anti-Italian, anti-… well, you get the picture. Apparently, they are even Anti-Baptist (no lie) and their views are rejected by all known Baptist organizations. Let’s face it, you’ve got to be pretty reactionary to have your fellow-Baptists reject you!
Congregants of Westboro Baptist dearly love to “spread the word of God’s hate” by disrupting funerals of gays & soldiers by picketing with signs reminding us that “God hates fags!” and other such sentiments. By the way, the soldier-hate is because they are serving the immoral, faggot-loving United States. Heck, they picketed the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. because “Jews are the real Nazis.” They even showed-up to try and ruin the funeral of Mr. Fred Rogers. What can you expect from a group who once recorded a song titled, “God Hates the World.”
It seems that the Westboro flakes announced their intention to spoil the San Diego comic book convention. Why? I guess it’s what Jesus would do. Anyway, the brave souls of Comic-Con weren’t intimidated; they stood their ground and joined the protest, carrying their own signs proclaiming thoughts such as “All Glory to the Hypno-Toad.”
I have no doubt the infiltrators confused the heck out of the Westboro Baptist kooks. Here is a tactic that I hope to see used more against the right-wing nuts in the future.
