Nina Haagen Dazs: What would be the point of picketing Roger Eberts funeral, other than keeping their name in the news?


They really, really, really liked the movie North.

Canton: ToxicMunkee: 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.

Nice. Especially if they brought their cats. Who would also stare.

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.

Hey WBC, not sure if you heard the announcement this morning but the funeral services have been moved to the South Side of Chicago. Ebert's family is asking that you hang out your van window making hand gestures at young black males you see on the street. Also, if you need better directions just ask any group of people you see gathered on street corners. They'll be more than happy to point you in the right direction.

Stare with longing in your eyes, and when they finally look uncomfortable sweetly whisper to them all the dirty sex acts you can think of that you want to do while swimming in their luscious hate.

barneyfifesbullet: Fred Phelps is a Democrat. So many seem to think he is some right wing fundie crazy, when he is just plain crazy


Someone always brings up that he calls himself a democrat, therefor he's not right wing crazy.  He's the definition of right wing crazy. It doesn't matter what political party he claims to belong to. I could claim to be Scarlet Johanson's love slave, that doesn't make it so. Besides which when he probably registered, during the Civil War, the parties were reversed in their ideologies.

Khellendros: No, hopefully NO ONE shows up to counter protest.  Hopefully the WBC protesters get redirected by cops to a safe, unobserved, long distance from anyone involved in the funeral, and there is no media coverage of them at all.  I hope it costs them thousands of dollars to travel and lodge, and they get nothing from it.  Not a two second blurb on the news, not a single picture in a newspaper, and not a single news aggregate post on the net.


...and that one of them gets really awful, squirty food poisoning at some point on the trip.

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.
