The WBC folks do look truly pitiful in the face of the counterprotest.  It's rather glorious.

Need about 100,000 more to be in DC on July 4 to drown out the Fanta Menace.

Thing to remember, WBC has essentially made a business of suing people who step out of bounds in counter-protesting them. In some ways, one of the best ways to counter-protest them turns out to sucker  them into a number of such lawsuits that they won't win and will suck up their resources. But that's a long game as you need to be able to spend the time with all of their legal non-sense, and a number of them are lawyers.

I hate the WBC as much as the next rational person, but really. There is never any call for vuvuzelas.

I say microwave a bunch of durian fruit and some industrial fans directed towards them.

Wouldn't it just be easier, and less annoying, to just drown them with water?

some days it's not so great to be from Richmond (*cough*Northam*cough*), but sometimes it's nice to see that this city's a little bit of alright.

Ah vuvuzelas, such lovely things.

I'm shocked these assholes are still around and up to their old tricks. I thought they would certainly fade away within a year of Phelps' death.

all of the kids of the founder of WBC were lawyers for a reason.  WBC was a gift.  Poppa would stir up outrage (My wife grew up in KC and recalls taking her little sisters to Ice Capades and having to navigate through WBC protestors waving signs with gay porn on them) a town or city would take steps to limit WBC's antics and then lawyer kids would file suit for 1st Amendment violations, collect a tidy sum and move on

TED has a talk or two from people who've left the church.  Interesting talks.

Perfect way to handle the WBC slimeballs.  They're one group of people in which I hope there actually is a Jesus and he biatch slaps them into hell for their BS.

In the right hands, I heartily endorse bagpipes:

But vuvezelas?  Possibly the most evil instrument ever.

Normally I'd agree about the vuvuzelas, but for those WBC assholes, I'll allow it.  In fact I'd play one myself for a counter protest.

Untrue.  IN this case, they're very, very fine and appropriate.

Has anyone considered the possibility of a truck carrying a generator to run an air compressor capable of running an entire bank of vuvuzelas indefinitely? Someone could drive it to every place the WBC shows up and serenade them with the song of our people. As a bonus, it would probably be fun to get it to the Capitol this summer, when Herr Cheeto has his military parade/national handjob party.

Yeah, a lot of the VCU folks on the RVA Pokemon GO! Discord participated in these protests, which was cool.

Or a katzenklavier, but with those vuvu-things instead of cats, and some sort of actual keyboard to control it. Or not. Just make a lot of horrible noise.

Well there's a name I haven't heard in some time.  I figured they would more or less disband after their leader died.  I guess it was towards the less.

"The only appropriate response to the Westboro Baptist Church, the Christian sect infamous for its neon-signed hate protests, is to ridicule IGNORE them."

They're completely ineffective on any level if no one's reacting to them.

Nope. These people are bullies. You ignore them, they'll STILL do what they do. You need to stand up to them.
