We have a surplus of mentally-ill hobos wandering around.  Why the hell can't one of them have a schizoid fit and wipe these doofuses out while they're picketing somewhere?

People who pay attention to anything they say or do are the problem.

The media should black them out. Just don't cover it. Pick angles that don't show them, don't interview them, don't talk to them, don't report on their comings and goings. If it becomes impossible to ignore them, call them "A church group."
 
2013-05-23 06:29:30 AM
I bet they don't show, they do this so much these days for the attention - announce they are picketing and then don't show.
 
2013-05-23 06:54:24 AM
Is this where I come to claim my pot?  This is a set-up, isn't this?

Yep... The more you touch shiat, the more you stink.
 
2013-05-23 07:03:54 AM
So, WBC announces plans to picket all kinds of shiat. How often do they actually show up? Who the fark is listening to these tools when they announce it?
 
2013-05-23 07:29:12 AM
Honestly, I'd be surprised if they released a statement saying they weren't going to picket the funerals.

They're professional trolls and attention whores, hopefully the world will catch on and just simply ignore them.

Because we keep electing them.

Bring it on, assholes, see if you have any tires to get home on.
 
2013-05-23 08:59:06 AM
The headline makes no sense. If I was taking bets, I can claim the pot, no matter what bets I took? If I bet it would take a year, I still collect my pot?

/head hurts

Yeah, but that's not lucrative.  They are essentially litigation trolls.  Whether or not they actually believe the foul bile that spews from them, well that I'm not sure of.

Doesn't the World Boardgaming Championship have better things to do?

I know Slayer issued a release asking that fans attending Jeff Hanneman's funeral do just that.

This times infinity plus one

That's it! Keep paying attention to them! Because what they do is so important and effects us all.

*yawn
This is an outrage

Can God create a tragedy so horrible, even the WBC wouldn't picket it?

The World Baseball Classic is highly overrated anyway.

Yes. Although if they were, say, to be struck by lightning, I think we could all agree the world would be a better place.
 
2013-05-23 09:16:45 AM
Ok, I'll do it, lawsuits and being arrested aside it'll be worth whatever they throw at me just to get a couple of those demented farks and ram my enraged and engorged phallus so far down their throats that they throw up, then piss some blood all over them, then set fire to their grandmother, then have a break for three minutes, then get a bit stabby, then punch someone in the brain, then crash my car into the moon.

I used to think this.  You might be right, of course, but while this might be an effective tactic with children, I'm not so sure anymore that its an effective tactic with sociopaths.  When they weren't getting national attention just for picketing the funerals of gay people, they upped the ante to picketing the funerals of soldiers.  I fear that a media blackout and everybody ignoring them (which is as impossible as there being no rubberneckers by the scene of a horrific car wreck, btw), would just make them escalate further.
 
2013-05-23 09:18:04 AM
Well, if there were ever a really good rationale for drone strikes on Americans, the freaking WBC is it.

I think someone needs to arrange the meeting with their higher power asap.
 
2013-05-23 09:19:00 AM
Stop greenlighting WBC stories.  They feed off the attention.  Either quietly ignore them, or quietly murder them, but don't feed the troll.

That's textbook "plausible deniability".

"Look, we asked the fans to ignore them. The WBC shouldn't be able to sue us- they're the ones who taunted the guy who'd carved a pentagram into his forehead with a razor."
 
2013-05-23 09:19:01 AM
What kind of pot are we talking about? I don't smoke no bammer weed.

WHY ARE YOU NOT ENFORCING A BLACKOUT OF STORIES re: THESE NOZZES of DOUCHE??
 
2013-05-23 09:20:12 AM
Some days it seems like WBC is trolling christianity. They are a big bullseye for God's wrath, and if they have a normal life then it's pretty clear there's no god after all.
 
2013-05-23 09:22:45 AM
They'll no-show. Idiots on the internet will keep being buttmad at them. People in the real world will continue not giving a shiat about the WBC.

I am become a picketed funeral.

The important thing is that you've found a way to feel superior to everyone else.
 
2013-05-23 09:31:05 AM
Have they even bothered to show up at any of the funerals they said they'd protest last 3-4 times? Seems like there's been the usual threats, but can't remember any follow ups on them actually showing up.
 
2013-05-23 09:31:16 AM
I've never believed in alleged visitations by God, Jesus, Mary, etc. through various forms (visions, faces burned onto toast, etc.) but I do wish that one of them would visit Phelps and his minions and say, "Hey!  Guess what!  Turns out I actually hate you guys instead.  Yup, every single one of you narrow-minded, brainwashed, morally bankrupt asshats.  Don't ever claim to be working or speaking on My behalf again, or so help Me, I'll eradicate every single one of you Raiders-of-the-Lost-Ark style.  Oh, and Satan says your tables are ready."
 
2013-05-23 09:32:05 AM
Has anyone mentioned that pot could also mean marijuana?  Because it does.  It would be funny to make a joke about that.

Marijuana makes people giggle shocker.

They never showed up at the set of "According to Jim" so...yes.
 
2013-05-23 09:39:59 AM
The media needs to stop calling them a church. They are a hate group pure and simple.

Call them the WBC Hate Group or the WBC cult. Tell it like it is.
 
2013-05-23 09:40:52 AM
Because Oklahoma is such a bastion of tolerance and liberal ideas?

Well, they do have an atheist.

One of these jihad groups needs to have the idea planted in thier heads that WBC is the holy grail of Christianity, America, capitalism, etc...and that if anything were to happen to WBC it would devastate us all. Allow Homeland Security and any other involved agencies look the other way...and let things happen.
 
2013-05-23 09:54:32 AM
They need to be labeled a hate organization and the children that are there need to be protected.

that was my nickname in highschool: Stop greenlighting WBC stories.  They feed off the attention.  Either quietly ignore them, or quietly murder them, but don't feed the troll.


I'm for this.

More often than not, they announce they will picket X, but never show up.  They jumped the shark years ago.  Let them fade away.
 
2013-05-23 10:07:39 AM
I don't post often, but I found this very interesting. Some good-hearted hacker took down the WBC's new site http://godhatesoklahoma.com/ and replaced it with something much nicer. Wait for the redirect; that's the best part.
 
2013-05-23 10:07:46 AM
So these idiots are the Alex Jones of sign-waving protesters?
 
2013-05-23 10:09:36 AM
Are we still paying attention to these trolls? Huh. I'd forgotten about them until you reminded me.
 
2013-05-23 10:10:02 AM

jayhawk88: Can God create a tragedy so horrible, even the WBC wouldn't picket it?


No, because said tragedy would have to kill every single member of the WBC...and then, it wouldn't be a tragedy now, would it?

strangeluck: Have they even bothered to show up at any of the funerals they said they'd protest last 3-4 times? Seems like there's been the usual threats, but can't remember any follow ups on them actually showing up.


Yeah...I wouldn't picket a kid's funeral in Oklahoma...sounds like a great way to get shot, and then have the local police ticket you for failing to move your vehicle in a timely manner.
