    No offense, but when are we gonna take these guys on? Face to face and in their face? I did it in West Hollywood 10 years ago. We actually made fun of his hot kid that was with him. The kid was cute and holding a I hate fags sign. And we said how much fun we would have with his boy, 19. We throw it back in their face.

    Their attention tactics are losing shock value.

    I don't understand why people don't just ignore them as if they literally DO NOT exist. They are clinically insane inbreds, it is SO pointless to counter protest at this point. They THRIVE off of the attention they get....its ALL they have.

    lol drives me nuts!

    They deserve to be shot and killed then have epithets hurled at their dead carcasses. Eye for an eye.

    It amazes me that they haven't gotten the shit beaten out of them yet. And I mean BEATEN.

    I wanna find out the next time they plan on coming to NY and rally up a bunch crazy faggots to show them how we deal with problems like this.

    If anyone lives in the area, def check out the article. Links to a facebook event for counter-protesters.

    (Tacoma is a 40 mile drive for me, unfortunately.)

    If it helps, people are gathering to block the Westboro klan.

    Now I'm a bit intimidated because its starting to look like a very large crowd.

    But, it would be cool to see the crazy up close.

    If our media is smart, they will avoid mentioning them.

    i'm all up for that buddy. i was in the IDF (israeli defense force) and know how to use an uzzi. sometimes i get the urge to use it on these inbred bastards. they deserve confrontation at every event they show up at. simple as that.

    These people are jokes, and don't deserve a fraction of the attention they get. They're professional trolls, with a very limited, but effective skill set. They make inflammatory and offensive remarks, then, when people are offended and inflamed by those remarks and driven to aggressive and violent acts against them, they sue their attackers. This funds their future endeavors to put gas in their hate-mobile, and allows them to keep inbreeding and keep trolling for more attention.

    A friend of mine teaches at the Harvey Milk school here in NYC, and they were recently "visited" by WBC. The WBC posted flyers announcing their imminent arrival, so instead of drawing a lot of attention to it, the principal rescheduled classes, dismissed the kids early out the back door, and gave the WBC no audience to offend. They looked like idiots, standing around protesting nothing - which is exactly what they are.

    I do feel bad for the family and friends attending the funeral, having to put up with these parasites. I suppose they could move the funeral last-minute, but a counter-protest that shows sympathy and support for the funeral would drown out the handful of hicks with badly-colored signs.

    Yeah, I find it rather fucked up that they're going to picket a funeral. But I don't expect decency from them, people that deliberately spread "GOD HATES X" lies probably don't have any sense of it. They give christians a terrible image.

    On the other hand, they have probably influenced more people off their religious fence and onto our side, not recruited them onto theirs.

    That's a great response. Take a page from the 60s and give them flowere! Have like a mob of gay guys to drown them out and ask them out. Give the cute ones roses and be all over them. Have some drag queens come on to them. Bet you they'd run screaming and wouldn't come back.

    THIS. If you attack them, then they will sue. That is their modus operandi. Do not attack them; do not shout back; do not respond to their taunts in any way. Make them scream themselves hoarse for nothing, so that their presence will have been a waste of their time and money.

    On the Internet, this strategy is known as "do not feed the troll". It is ridiculously effective.

    Somebody needs to nuke these peoples' church/compound and call it a day.

    My brother was in the marines, and god forbid if something had happened to him, and these people wanted to picket his funeral - I'd lose my shit and probably kill someone.

    Their new tactic is to threaten to show up and then use a promise of radio air time as ransom... someone gave them an interview so they backed down.

    In the meantime the kids' grandparents have asked everybody who is not there to honor the kids' lives to PLEASE STAY HOME and the county police, who have had to deal with WBC wingnuts at their own funerals, have said THEY Will deal with them if they show up. They have the ability to make them invisible to the mourners.

    The more attention they get, the longer this will keep up.

    i say dump red paint on them like PETA folks used to do to people wearing fur. If they're praying for death at least let them wear the "blood"
