Fred Phelps and The Westboro Band of Shitheads

The Westboro Baptist Church, led by Fred Phelps and famous for picketing military funerals (because the U.S. Military is a vast gay-love association), blaming the Columbia diaster on the United States’ support of homosexuals and abortion ,and blaming 9-11 on God’s punishment of the U.S., etc., will be attending the funerals of the students killed at Virginia Tech.

This angers me to a degree that is very unlike me. I makes me want to drive to Blacksburgh with a hockey stick and beat that evil man within a inch of his life. However, that would be immoral, and illegal.

I have a suggestion, though.

About 1,000 counter protesters should show up whereever WBC arrives, surround them, hem them in (peacefully!) and not let them move for the entirety of the funerals. I don’t care if it’s 24 hours, they should be penned into one tiny spot and not allowed to leave without trying to cause physical harm to the couter-protesters. Let them sing their “God Hates Fags” songs while the families, students, faculty, and administrators attend to their grieving. We’ll keep the vicious haters away.

  1. This is a good idea. We should not initiate hostilities against them.
