(620WTMJ Milwaukee)   Farker just found out that Westboro Baptist Church is going to be picketing a location minutes from his home Sunday morning and at Miller Park on the Fourth. Got any good counter-protest sign ideas?   (620wtmj.com) divider line 448

BackAssward: Why do you care? Why speak for others (we) who didn't ask you? What is the point of your post exactly... 'get off my lawn' (get off fark thread)?


Settle down, I'm allowed an opinion on this. I think this is passive aggressive and subby won't actually do anything.

PsyLord: I support the First Amendment, but not these D-bags.


That's because what they are doing is not protected by the first amendment. Hate speech and advocating violence against other Americans are not included in the first amendment.

And WBC would like to thank subby and Fark for the attention.

This would be a great sign for them to stop being souch giant douche-nozzles.

Of course you'd probably go to jail for a few months because of all the murder, but I think it would be worth it.


I was thinking more of a stuck accelerator pedal on a car..I panicked ,lost control, plowed right through the whole lot of them. sorry.
think a jury would convict?

or


Have the local gay community show up to support their right to protest.

Several hundred scantily clad homos with signs "Gays for Westboro" should be hilarious. Make sure they're BIG signs.

All of the above. Absurdist signs, overpowering their dreck, get there early enough to stake out their chosen points, and donation tables for causes they hate. Could be epic.

How about: "Fred Phelps farked me in the ass, and I liked it"
 
2012-06-27 01:27:31 PM  

lennavan: Don't make a sign. Don't go.

All these people want is attention. Attention Whores will continue their shenanigans until it no longer garners attention. You want a successful counter protest, don't go. Write to the local media stations and tell them not to cover it.


Agreed. Find something better to do with your time. Clean your bathroom. If you want, think of them while you're scrubbing the toilet.

Harry Freakstorm: Hold up a big sign that says "Smite Him >" (arrow pointing at WBC) but hold it over your head so God can see it.

Yup, god smote sodom because they were gonna rape and kill a couple angels, not because they had homosexual sex in general.

Sgt. Expendable: Quit giving them exactly what they want.

Setup a little stand near them, no obtrusive signs, no yelling, nothing even remotely confrontational. Just a sheet that says "Please Donate." When people ask, tell them you are collecting donations for LGBT groups, all money collected will be donated in the name of "Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church"

Arrange to have any thank you notes from the charities sent to WBC. If the people they hate are benefiting from their actions, they'll have to rethink their business.

That ... that's just crazy enough to work!

I know all the 'mature' heads advocate peaceful response to the WBC, but wouldn't it be funny if a few of them were brutally murdered and then someone hacked "www.godhatesfags.com" (which, really? that's the url they picked?) with something like "Due to our continued doucheness, G-d has punished [however many were killed] of our members. Repent for doucheness!"

Because honestly, no there's no one on the planet that would really weep to see them wiped out.

That's part of the issue. Normal people treat them like their must be some internal consistency to their madness because their arguments come from the bible. But there is no such consistency and their ability to love and think is little better than an animal's.
 
2012-06-27 01:34:00 PM  
Suck a dick, right in front of them.
 
2012-06-27 01:34:32 PM  
You could always put on a clown suit and join them. I'm sure they'd just love that.

Really, they are just doing it so that they can sue if someone interferes, there is no belief in what they say (at the top level anyway), maybe some of their sheeple believe... but not the ones calling the shots.

"Catholics in favor of WBC."

Oh, the WBC just hates homosexuals, not women? My bad.

Raharu: REMEMBER The WBC does not believe in what is on their Signs.

No, they don't. The "Family" and they are a large extended family are mostly made up of lawyers.

They make a living off of lawsuits.

Im not even kidding. Try to stop them from protesting, lawsuit... try to stop a protest in progress? Lawsuit... physically try to stop them, BIG LAWSUIT.

This is how they operate... this is how they make their money.


Actually if you didn't see this... it's worth a few minutes... Nate Phelps is one of Fred's sons, who ran away from home at 18...

I have a pretty hard time these retards could win any civil suit, Especially since it would need to be tried in the area in which they were being douches.

doubled99: Hold up a sign saying God hates Gays and pretend to be one of them.
Then rob a bank, shoot someone, or molest a child.
The resulting scandal will destroy their credibility.


The problem is that the WBC is doing the same thing to religion in general already.

FarkingStan: You should cook them food and feed them and tell them that God loves them. I bet no one's done that yet...

They probably won't come. They have figured out they can be attention whores just by announcing they will protest, without having to go through all the trouble of traveling.

Pretty much this. The media always freaks out. Westboro sends one or two people for a while and then they leave.
