Is it just me or do these clowns seem to be running out of steam? What would be the point of picketing Roger Eberts funeral, other than keeping their name in the news? It's not like they'll actually show up.

They really, really, really liked the movie North.

Ignore these people. Their MO is to try to get people to infringe on their constitutional rights and then sue. Pay them even less attention than you would a crazy homeless guy screaming the end is nigh, as at least you know they're not going to get physical.

Two thumbs up (their asses)!
 
2013-04-08 09:07:50 AM
I'd like to counter-protest by reading an extremely critical review of their protest via megaphone. It only seems appropriate.

Point and laugh. Perhaps they can be ridiculed into obscurity

I don't think a funeral is considered a success WITHOUT these asstards protesting at it.
It lends the event a certain media cred.

LOL.  Good point.  You're nobody if your funeral hasn't been protested by WBC.  It's like being a guest voice on The Simpsons.

Or your ass got blown up by an IED in some godforsaken hell hole in Afghanistan. I'm not sure that's "making it."

I'd love to see hundreds of counter-protesters show up but without signs.  And they don't say anything.  They just stand there and stare at the Westboro people.  Stare.  Silently.

Stare.

Random side note, as someone in a fark thread once said, when Fred Phelps dies, that funeral is going to look like burning man.

I don't know, part of me REALLY wants to see the gay community have their fun with that. Just stage the gayest gayout that's ever gayed there. Make sure it's a scene that would have abhorred him, just as his vile and obscene group has abhorred the funerals of too many.
 
2013-04-08 11:30:42 AM
Why does it have to be peaceful?
 
2013-04-08 11:40:42 AM
When do we start protesting churches about their pedophile priests?

I have some great sign ideas.

The younger generation of the Phelps' brood seem to be fleeing left and right. Pretty soon they won't have anyone to picket as all the hate-mongers will die off with no one left to keep it going.

They are reaching the end, and now they're scared they'll just fade away as a footnote in history.
 
2013-04-08 12:00:58 PM
So stop giving them press by announcing every protest every goddamned time.

The proof that liberals and moderates are not like conservatives and fundamentalists can be seen in that the Westboro people are still living. There's a long line of liberal or government targets at the hands of conservatives, but there have not been very many if any shooting incidents involving a liberal taking out government targets or conservatives. Some "No True Liberal" I'm sure, but .. I still can't think of any. Meanwhile conservative/tea baggers taking out targets with armed violence is fairly common, threatening it even more common.

This.

I know the media is into ratings and doesn't care about whether they are willing participants in giving these idiots free publicity, but wouldn't they do better with another story about Beiber's monkey?  Or something about the Kardashians?

Step 1 - Announce you are picketting a famous person's funeral.
Step 2 - Lots of people get upset and talk about you.
Step 3 - Sit back and enjoy the Attention Whoring benefits....you don't even have to picket now.
 
2013-04-08 12:55:17 PM
So, we're still going to give trolling attention whores the attention they seek? Brilliant.

It would be funnier if the Chicago Nazi's did the staring instead.
 
2013-04-08 12:55:36 PM
No; you really shouldn't. Just ignore them. Don't talk to them. Don't yell at them. Don't throw things at them. Above all else; don't attack them.

/ they are like fairies; they only exist if you believe that they exist. If you say, "I don't believe in WBC" enough; they will stop existing

Or you could just ignore them, go about your life, and pretend they do not exist. At all.

Enough with these shiatballs. They had their 15 minutes, and it's time to start ignoring them. If we can do that, they will be powerless.

They did do some good, though, sparking important debate and conversation regarding freedom of speech.

So, basically react the way I do when I'm walking through the park and see two dogs doing it.

/what, is that weird?
 
2013-04-08 01:02:33 PM
I would actually be proud if they protested my funeral.  It means I must have done something right.

I think "running out of money" is m ore accurate. Lately they have been doing a lot of no-shows, and even tried to photoshop themselves into Whitney Houston's funeral. The're like the AOL of hate groups.
 
2013-04-08 01:03:48 PM
If they keep this up, having them protest your funeral will become a statement of how good and popular you really were in life. I hope I'm good and enough of a positive influence on this world that they protest at my funeral.
 
2013-04-08 01:03:53 PM
The ultimate irony is that Fred Phelps's previous profession was civil rights lawyer...
 
2013-04-08 01:03:58 PM
The greatest proof that there is no God is that people like Fred Phelps exist.

We really need to stop paying attention to these people.  WBC is a spoiled, 4 year old child.  We have told the child a numerous times that their behavior is unacceptable.  Now it's time to simply ignore.
