Hopefully they get a flight with a long layover in Cairo or Tripoli.

Good.  I'll bet they don't realize that the Constitution doesn't apply in other countries.

Bullshiat. At least make a believable claim. You people don't have the balls, Westboro.

That was my first thought as well

/or they purposefully send some members who have an obsession with martyrdom and pump it for all the press they can

Please... proceed
 
2013-12-07 11:41:44 AM
Also, I'm betting if they tried they would just be denied entry to the country

They're a bunch of lawyers running a scam. They know exactly what they are doing and they aren't going to that funeral anymore than you or I am.
 
2013-12-07 11:43:28 AM
And they were never heard from again.

Hey, isn't Africa the part of the world where they know how to do that weird trick with sharpened bicycle spokes and the spines of unwitting victims?

Can TSA put them on the no fly list when they try to come back to the us?
 
2013-12-07 11:49:53 AM
Have they ever heard of "necklacing?"

Exactly this!

They are a Scam group. They have no religious belifes, the entire clan is lawyers, disbarred lawyers or kids.. look it up.

They depend on people trying to stop them.
 
2013-12-07 12:28:12 PM
No way they leave the country for their cause.
 
2013-12-07 12:29:23 PM
Ain't gonna happen. They don't even have the balls to go to Canada to protest. Canada!

...and maybe they will be imprisoned for 27 years and never return. We can just point and laugh.

Yep, they were supposed to show up here (Red Deer AB) to protest a play about Matthew Shepard, but those f*cktard pussies didn't show up.

IIRC, Canada PNG'd the lot of them, so they couldn't enter the country. SA may not be as savvy to their scam, and so might actually let them in. We can all hope, eh?

You're not going?  Racist.
 
2013-12-07 12:52:59 PM
When was the last time they actually showed up to protest? Recently they've just been issuing press releases saying that they're going all over the place, but then they never do.
 
2013-12-07 12:54:32 PM
I suspect they'll be barred from entering the country, much like they were when they travelled to the U.K. & Canada, but in the off chance they are allowed entry I have a feeling that things won't go down as well as they expected.

Canada considers them a hate group and they were permanently banned from entering the country several years ago. IIRC that was around 2010.
 
2013-12-07 01:02:09 PM
No. They are not booking flights.  They are saying they are booking flights.  It gets the media all in a frenzy without them having to actually do the hard work of carrying the signs.

Planet Earth should ban them.

Yup - they're going to say they are booking flights, but probably aren't.  If they are, it's because they already know for certain they won't be allowed into the country.

Like all bullies, they are cowards.  Like all cowards, they make a big show of their thwarted bravery.

Pussies.

No they're just attention whoring

Mission accomplished

Interesting scenario just went through my head, if they actually get the tickets and take the flight expecting to be stopped and sent back at some point but are instead allowed entry and not hindered in any way, how paranoid would that make them? I wonder if they would even leave the airport or just buy immediate return tickets
 
2013-12-07 02:00:43 PM
Oh, hell, when Fred Phelps himself croaks, whoever's left in his jolly little band at the time will probably protest at his funeral.

Having been to South Africa I can only hope that the local guide they hire would have a sense of humor.  My type of humor.

I'm certain they would buy return tickets and claim to have been turned away at the border.

If, however, they did enter the country, and if they did stage a protest, it s not a certainty that they would be beaten and/or arrested.  But oh, if wishing made it so.

Maybe they can give Ms. Shirley Phelps a nice necklace for Christmas.

Can we start a collection to make sure these lovely people get their wish?

I have seen Fred Phelps in person.  He locked eyes with me.  Never have I felt the true presence of evil, until that moment.

Make sure we send a gift basket to South Africa

Heh! My son said the same thing when I told him about their plans.

But if their business model is showing up somewhere and being obnoxious, getting their rights infringed upon, and then suing and collecting damages, how do they profit from saying they're going places and not going  to them?

I would suppose the idea is that if they do what they can to maintain a high profile as much as possible, even if they're not always showing up, then people get more outraged when they actually do show up somewhere.
 
2013-12-07 03:35:17 PM
Could the US force then to go?
 
2013-12-07 03:55:05 PM
Awesome, they get to discover that most other countries by and large don't have this first amendment thing they hide behind. I'm hoping they piss of the South Africans so much that they keep them.

Do those farkwits ever actually protest at the places they're going to protest or is Phelps just a seriously strong troll?

if you look at the wbc anti-gay platform, the kind of people who support that platform hate mandela - see joe the not a plumber's facebook page comments for evidence of the kind of anti-gay sentiment and anti-mandela sentiment existing amongst the borderline retards of the republican base.

now, the fact is that there is something entirely ridiculous about half-a-dozen anti-gay placard-wavers threatening to descend on a nation of 50 million, which is in national mourning for the man considered their greatest leader, in order to disrupt the proceedings. they have nothing to gain from going to south africa - it would only show how insignificant they are, and they hate being made to look insignificant. they post the threat because they think it makes them look significant and because there is a good chance that the kind of people who support an anti-gay agenda will also support an anti-mandela agenda. i hope they do go and get torn limb from limb, but they probably wouldn't even be allowed in the country if they were serious about going, which they probably aren't, but if even if they did intend to go and were allowed in they would probably just be treated as some kind of irrelevant circus freakshow act.

they're desperate for attention, so they're trying to piggy-back on to mandela's death for the benefit of the anti-gay, anti-mandela loons and to further their own media exposure and standing amongst peope they believe support their agenda. the reality is they won't get anywhere near the proceedings so they are left to tweet empty threats as their only measure of authenticity

it's kind of poetic. when fred phelps dies there will be a national outpouring, too, but of an absolutely opposite kind to that for mandela. one man has made it his life's work to profit from hate, the other made it his life's work to fight hate. one man is entirely insignificant, the other was one of the most significant of his time.

the phelps clan are just demonstrating the depths of their delusional arrogance by publicly setting themselves against mandela in death through an empty twitter threat that, if it wasn't an empty threat, would only demonstrate how unimportant they are - but, given that it is likely to be an empty threat, though, it shows that they are even less important. it is just yet another example of how divorced from reality they are.
 
2013-12-07 03:59:39 PM
Africa isn't as friendly as here.  They'll take your skull of with a car bumper and use your torso for a toilet.  Godspeed, Westboro.
