Lol my computer crashed laughing at the white knight. Takei is a bigger man for being kind in his post, but I don't have that much money and Phelps was an awful human being who carried his awfulness to his offspring.

Have gay sex on Phelps's grave?  After all the dumps that have been taken there?

I hear anal sex is great for constipation.

Jairzinho:

I will not celebrate the death of Cheney


/I'm not saying they're at the same. just evil in their own way.


briankaldorf.files.wordpress.com

That's because Cheney can't die. He's a monster wearing a remarkable looking human suit. When this age of the earth passes into the dust of time, he will still be here, roaming the wasted landscape, scouring for the next life to assume, waiting for the next intelligence to rise and command the planet. He is a monster that thrives on the innocence of others, the breaths of infants that are taken too soon sustain him. Every culture, living and dead, has known a Cheney. He lurks in the shadows, unassuming and unsuspected, until such time as the monster can take a new host and reveal himself.

DivorceWar Veteran: Heliovdrake: I will plan an entire vacation around going to piss on this mans grave... I'll post pics when I do.


He spent his entire adult life, hurting people, his family, strangers and such...

It wasnt even religiously motivated most likely.

His entire "family" that is still in the church are lawyers or disbared lawyers.
They make a living out of protests and people who try to stop them... You can look it up.
Try to stop a protest, and they sue. Get angry enough to hit them... you will pay through the nose.

THIS THIS AND SO MUCH THIS


Actually he started out as a decent lawyer who campaigned for civil rights back in the 60's. I'm guessing there was some head trauma in the 70's that could explain the change.

serpent_sky: Alpha Sierra Foxtrot: It almost makes you wish that there was, in fact, some sort of afterlife so that he can look at it and think, "I was wrong...I was all wrong..."

Or that his God would sit him down, and give him one hell of a talking to about all the bullshiat and pain he caused in His name.  That would really be something. "Mr/ Phelps, God will see you now." He's excited, thrilled - he's meeting God. And God just tears him a new one for being a miserable, worthless prick who caused senseless hurt to so many people and blasphemed God's name.


I can get behind this.

Yeah, being relieved someone can't spew hatred is almost in line with a hate crime. I'd say he;s far from "spewing hatred." This thread is way less hatred filled than I'd expected., honestly.

I take no solace or joy in this man's passing. We will not dance upon his grave, nor stand vigil at his funeral holding "God Hates Freds" signs, tempting as it may be.
He was a tormented soul, who tormented so many. Hate never wins out in the end. It instead goes always to its lonely, dusty end.

Phelps will be going to Hell, simply because Satan lost a bet.  Satan bet God that Phelps would come out of the closet on his death bed - God said no.  God wins.

I portrayed Fred Phelps in a production of the Laramie Project in 2007. After each show, despite having played 5 different characters throughout the show (as is common for that particular production), people would immediately recognize me as the guy who played Fred and tell me how, within a matter of minutes, I got their blood boiling. I even got dirty looks after a few shows.

Good riddance to this awful human being.
 
2014-03-20 01:51:38 PM  
Where are they burying him?
Because I was serious about knocking the bottom out of a port-o-let and parking it on top of the grave.
I have the resources and I have done much much worse in my life.
Just tell me where to park it.

Lady J: thank you. nice

we don't get to criticise how other people behave unless we behave better than them when given the opportunity


Eh, at the same time,I can't fault people celebrating. It may be too easy for me to 'take the high road'-I was never affected by him, I was never a member of a group he targeted, I was never tormented by him or those who thought like him.

I'm not sure if I can claim trying not to celebrate is super-principled, if I wasn't badly harmed by him.

Wait, doesn't that make you intolerant of my intolerance of intolerance?

You hypocrite!
 
2014-03-20 01:52:15 PM  
TBH, I don't get all the exuberance.  The guy was a repugnant little shiatstain, but his "work" was entirely limited to hitting people in the feels.  So, cheering his death, in addition to being a skosh barbaric, can be interpreted as a sort of "mission accomplished" for WBC.

They deserve your complete indifference as the irrelevant, ineffectual, noise-making children they are.

Since he's more outraged over people's responses than to the guy who did nothing but spew hatred, he would be one of the 'You're the REAL racist for pointing out racism' political posters.

You make a great point. Posting a snarky comment on fark is EXACTLY equivalent to disrupting the grieving family at a funeral.

strangeluck: In a just world, people like him wouldn't exist. But it's good he died on his own, because if he had been murdered he would more than likely been seen as a martyr.


Yes, it would have been good if he'd been struck by lightning.  Then they wouldn't know what to think.

Jairzinho: I never celebrate the death of anyone, no matter how hateful, how evil, how much of human shiatty stain that person is/was. I may feel relieved knowing that a bad person is no longer around us to do more damage, but NOT HAPPY or joyful. That would put me at their level and I'd become what I hate of them.

There's nothing wrong with feeling unmitigated jubilation when a monster dies.  In all aspects of life there is balance - we feel sadness at their existence, so it then follows we feel gladness at their demise.

I still swear to god that first one looks like Grant Imahara.

But yeah, I long realized the best way to deal with them wasn't to ignore them, but to have a counter-protest that was more interesting and drew attention away from them.

Though, by the time I realized this, they stopped coming to Blacksburg..

RoxtarRyan: Ah yes, and now my facebook is lighting up with the jackasses who put on a their polite public face, saying shiat like "I hope he finds peace...", and "what a shame that someone lost their father" and "it is sad he didn't learn the error of his ways".

fark those people, too. There were soldiers who died who were fathers, sons, brothers, mothers, daughters, and this goddamn cancer didn't give a fark about any of that. When you get rid of a cancer in your body, you shouldn't have to put up with people giving you bullshiat lines like "aw, that's a shame, why couldn't you two find a way to live with each other peacefuly?". fark that. Phelps and his entire goddamn clan are a cancer. I hope it isn't long before the next is turned into worm food.


Um...actually, some cancers grow pretty slowly, and many people have learned to live with them...my grandmother had a very slow-moving form of leukemia, for instance, and chemo four times a year was enough to keep it from growing. And one of my co-workers has a prostate cancer that's growing so slowly that he'd have to be 150 for it to start getting unfriendly. I guess what I'm really trying to say is that Fred Phelps is worse than cancer.

For those worried about the hate being spewed in this thread.  I'm guessing most farkers are like me.  We express our satisfaction with his death on Fark, and then we go about our lives without thinking much about it at all, ever again.

Until the next thread, that is.

NeverDrunk23: Today is Fred Rogers birthday.

Coincidence?


And Lo, Lord Rogers rose and smote the one who would spread hate while bearing his name?

.. Except that I can't actually see Mr. Rogers *SMITING* anyone.

So it would have to be

"And Lo, Merciful Rogers did rise and sit down with the one who spread hate with a simillar name, and in doing so said how he was disappointed with the man and how much better he could have done with his life, and so the man, full of sadness, passed on"

.. Which is not quite as dramatic.
/Though the idea of getting a "I'm Dissapointed In You" speech from mister rogers is weirdly terrifying. Well, terrifying's not quite the right word. Ego-crushing?
