This will be the straw that breaks the camel's back
 
2012-12-16 01:57:01 AM
Yeah, we knew this was coming. It was predicted by many farkers in previous threads.
 
2012-12-16 01:58:27 AM
Oh, I presumed they would sink lower. They're trolls, constantly stepping up the game to anger the most possible people.

Respectfully to you sir or ma'am, I genuinely doubt that. There's always going to be a niche market for this sort of bullsh*t.

I thought I remembered that back in the 80s, one of the white supremacist groups that were preaching about killing non-whites got slammed with a hate-speech charge. They claimed religious freedom but the courts said, nah -- hating for hate's sake isn't religion.

Isn't that the case here? Can't WBC be nailed for hate speech?

I don't think they're explicitly advocating killing anyone. Pretty sure they know where the "Fire in a crowded theater" line is by now.

The Phelps family are all lawyers and once upon a time Fred Phelps was a prominent civil rights attorney before being disbarred

There is actually no low to which these people can sink. Because they're not in it for their supposed beliefs, they're in it for a living. They employ full-time lawyers to file applications for demonstrations. Many are denied, and so then they file lawsuits under the first amendment - but of course they will usually settle for some money. This is what these people do. When they actually show up to "protest," they are usually there for about 30 minutes or less and then they get the heck out of there.

Therefore, the VERY best thing that we can all do is allow them to do whatever the hell they want. Let them hold up their signs, and laugh at them. They don't mean it. They've almost never meant it. Let them do their thing and laugh and laugh and laugh at them. But always let them do their thing. Because it is only in not being allowed that they make their dough. They must always be allowed. It is so irriating, I know. But they must always always be allowed.

Because if they have nobody to sue, they will eventually have to go away, because they won't have any money.

Very nice. To put it succinctly, don't give these attention seeking coonts any farking attention.

I know how to deal with these farks.

During the Columbine memorial service a group of religious farkers showed up an did what they do: Handmade signs, screaming that god wanted the massacre to happen. (For all I know it was them.) A group of students gathered around them and started to sing 'Amazing Grace'. A bunch of other people joined in, and then more. Very soon the singing drowned out the vile screaming. No matter where they went, or what they said they were hidden and silenced by grieving people singing hymns.

That's what should happen tomorrow, instead of people screaming back at them.
 
2012-12-16 07:02:31 AM
They won't even show. They threatened to picket the funerals of the Amish school shootings here a few years back, got tons of press and outrage, and then never showed up.

They troll so hard now they don't even have to show up.

I wish the media outlets would all agree "do not mention anything about these farksticks, except the day when the inevitable 'WBC head Fred Phelps found raped to death by rabid wildebeest; wildebeest to get ticker-tape parade' story breaks."
 
2012-12-16 07:05:39 AM
So is this the thread where we vent righteous indignation against lawsuit trolls, and pretend like these douchebags actually matter instead of just doing what we should be doing, and not giving them ANY attention, media or otherwise?

I think s/he means "This is the incident which will get them murdered by an angry mob."

Though frankly, I doubt it. Most people are wise to their despicable tricks, plus they've taken to bringing their children along with them. What heroes; trolling the fark out of grieving parents while using kids as human shields.
 
2012-12-16 07:58:14 AM
The only, and I am mean ONLY good part is the counter protest which brings groups of disparate people together to shield grieving people from the vile human slime that is the WBC.
 
2012-12-16 08:02:37 AM
Reprehensible trolls.

FFS, put them down as a terrorist organisation, send them off to gitmo and be done with it already.

There isn't a single civil rights group that would fight their case. Send them to a hole and let them rot.

I'm pretty sure I could name a few off the top of my head, because that's what they do. They protect free speech, regardless of the popularity of the group involved, or who douchebaggy their message is. The problem is that, today it's Westboro Baptist Church, tommorow it could be anyone that a large group of people disagree with.

Westboro Baptist Church are nothing but a group of vile trolls who have learned how to coax people into doing things that get them attention and money. Let me say that up front.

But they still have every legal right to say what they want to as long as they don't incite action based on it.

Bontesla had the right idea in one of the non greens last night, to form a human wall between them and the funerals, not confrontational, just to isolate them into irrelevance.

Do what they did when they tried to picket Comi-con in 2010. People just came out and made fun of them until they left.

Youtube video of the counter protest, and it is GLORIOUS.

Getting angry at these people only furthers their goals. They feed on the attention it gives them. That's why things like the Patriot Riders, while noble, irk me. They're giving them EXACTLY what they want.Ridiculing them, and laughing? They tend to pack their stuff up and leave.

That's why I thought a human wall maybe with large plain black signs not saying anything, just being in the way of them getting any attention would be a good solution...

Yeah, agreed. But the flipside is that there have be a shiatload of people that have been ignored for the purposes of the 'national interest'. Look at Hicks and Manning. I'm sure we can find a way...

I'm a hardcore liberal and I want them forcibly removed. Says a lot about them.

Just once I'd like to read a story to the effect of "WBC plans to picket interrupted by lack of airplane tickets" where every single airline simply refused to sell these people tickets.
 
2012-12-16 09:24:28 AM

monty666: So is this what all Christians are like?


Speaking as a non-Christian related with and friends with many actual Christians, the WBC is not Christian. They call themselves Christian, sure, but seriously, would Jesus do this? No, I think Jesus would be part of the counter-protests. But of course that's just speculation. What do I know?

/Yes, WWJD is a fine standard.

are they TRYING to get themselves murdered?

WBC: 'we have rights! we can protest anywhere!'
locals: 'a-yup. say sheriff, why don't you go check out the north forty. I hear martha's out that way with a flat tire.'
sheriff: 'why sure, I'll head on out there for while. might take me all day though, that martha...she's got terrible car troubles.'
WBC: 'um...hey, we' got rights. you have to stay here to protect us!'
sheriff: 'you don't look like your in any danger, right fellas?'
locals: 'oh they're fine. just fine.'
sheriff: 'ok then, see you all tomorrow! [drives off]'
WBC: 'well um...ok then, I guess we'll just be going now...'
locals: 'why don't we help you to the elevator'
WBC: 'hey! we're on the first floor! and we got rights! WE'LL SUE!
locals: 'well you'll try anyways...boys, go pry open them doors on the 10th floor. we'll move 'em up in batches...'
WBC: [screams] *dies*

yeah. until WBC all fall down an elevator shaft and land on some bullets. If I were them I'd sit this one out. they keep taunting people like this, eventually someone is gonna snap. and it's REAL hard to sue when you're dead.

I support free speech. You should be able to say whatever you want, no matter how disgusting, vile, or degrading it might be. It doesn't matter if I personally like you or not.

If Fred Phelps just so happened to get shot in the face while saying his disgusting, vile, degrading things......I would find it very, very, very hard to muster up even one iota of sympathy for him or his retarded family. That's not saying I hope someone shoots him in the face. Just that if it happened, I wouldn't be too broken-up about it.

Actually, most people aren't. Living in CT, I see a lot of my friends on FB hearing about these trolls for the first time ever now that they are planning to come here and do their thing in Newtown. I've been trying to explain the whole "they're not really a church, they're lawyers, this is what they do and please ignore them" but they're REALLY pushing it with this one. People don't really have their heads on straight, as expected.

Really? As beautiful as a concept as that is, i would like them to be tarred and feathered and stuck together as a clump, all standing up, while the tar is still sticky.
