I hope that store has plenty of Champaign in stock, because they're gonna be fresh out  in under an hour.
 
2014-03-28 02:24:04 AM
It wouldn't surprise me at all if the Phelps family owned that store.
 
2014-03-28 05:34:18 AM
For once, I agree with the WBC, they should picket that liquor store for the 10% off sign. It is crass, in poor taste, and not appropriate.

Fred Phelps dying should result in at least a 20% discount on champagne.
 
2014-03-28 08:34:51 AM
Wait, are they mourning Phelps or not? I thought he was ousted and they weren't holding ceremonies or something.

I'd say no more than 15%...
 
2014-03-28 08:36:07 AM
Damnit...I can't do things like this in Va due to the damn ABC laws but this is pure marketing brilliance. Even with the 10% cut in prices it's a win/win.

Jews don't recognize the divinity of Jesus, Protestants don't recognize the authority of the pope, but everybody's going to recognize the Baptists at the liquor store.

I am glad someone, somewhere is profiting from his death.
 
2014-03-28 08:39:05 AM
Very good.  Now if the LGBT community would come together an coordinate a nationwide gay bar initiative to offer free blow jobs to all comers in honor of Phelps' passing they'd wear out the Westboro weenies.

The one thing that people that use the 1st amendment as a shield for their hate speach really hate is when someone else uses the 1st amendment against them.

Meh. It's the liquor store's right to oppose the WBC, and it's the WBC's right to oppose them right back, and it's Farkers' right to oppose the WBC's opposition, and it's turtles all the way down.

This is how freedom of speech works. Nobody has the right to stand unopposed.

I thought so too, but looked up the liquor license information as well as the business info from the Oklahoma Secretary of State and both are to the same person, who is not a Phelps
 
2014-03-28 08:55:19 AM
Well, hopefully, the protest will draw some extra business to the store.

Having a bunch of tards providing free publicity for a liquor store is infinitely preferable to disrupting someone's funeral. I optimistically see this as a first step for the ass-clowns to fade away to obscurity.

It's like when the first (and legally the only) porn shop opened in my hometown. Baptist protested across the street, free advertising.

They did piss off the local DJs after a while filming every car that came withing 50 feet of the place. And there's a gas station next door.

How is this ironic?  They picket things they don't like and that will get them publicity.  This is what they do.  If they filed a legal challenge to liquor store's right to have that sign, that might be ironic.
 
2014-03-28 09:06:53 AM
WBC was just *waiting* to pounce on something like this.  Everyone else in the world gave a good, respectable "sorry for your loss" message, and left them baffled by our lack of hate.  Then this guy goes and posts that sign, and suddenly they have an enemy again.

It should be 20% off champagne served by the glass by dudes in bow ties and G strings, with each bottle being opened by shaking it a bit then popping it onto a picture of Phelps, but their liquor license probably doesn't allow for serving by the glass.

The sign above the awning says "Discount Liquors" but it is a lie.

WanPhat: How is this ironic? They picket things they don't like and that will get them publicity.

They should organize a "smoke-in" as a counter protest.  What goes better with lots of liquor than some smokes?

Their plan as always is to self promote, hope some counter protester takes a swing at them, or that the authorities violate some obscure law and attempt to remove them from the premises.  Then they can attempt to make a small profit in court.

Everyone who shows up to support the liquor store gets a free beer.  Watch as the entire city and homeless from 3 states show up to pitch in.

Sure he did, but I am genuinely sorry for the hole his death leaves in the hearts of those who love him, even if I hope they get violated by Japanese tentacle monsters.
