Don’t Feed The Animals

Yesterday, while remembering those that made the ultimate sacrifice, we also remembered that in a free society we must tolerate those that sacrifice good taste.

Nice little play pen they got there, what, no sandbox? And with only 3 females(?) present, at least they won’t breed.

The KKK confronting the Westboro haters, I guess the local chapter of the nazi party was at a Bar Mitzvah. When even the semi looney groups think you are “out there”, it might be time to recalibrate your beliefs.

I like how the local police cordoned off the fringe groups into manageable areas, no doubt designed for their protection (notice that none of those 3 lady types would venture within swinging distance of the railing? They may be crazy but they are not stupid).

Standing in front of them with the American flags was a nice touch, but next time Westboro come for a visit, cordon off their cage with a big white canvas, with something appropriately written on it like ,”God loves American soldiers and fags, but he is not too keen on haters”.

    Just to point out, I really doubt the KKK dislikes Westboro because WBC is just too evil for them. I’d be more likely to believe it’s because Phelps at one time had a reputation as a civil rights activist who helped black people win court cases, especially in cases of discrimination. (Fred Phelps is apparently a massive racist himself, but he considered these cases a good way to build reputation and get attention.)

    Yeah, a lot of stuff about Phelps is like that… the kind of stuff that makes you think “Who would make that shit up, let alone live that life?”

    Well, more to the point, who would do something they disagree with just to get attention? Seems a little harmful to the cause, but I guess it doesn’t matter as much since you seem to be about the only person who knew that.

    Honestly, we don’t need more evidence of Phelps’ craziness.

    Because just because he hates black people doesn’t mean he considers it an imperative to do all he can to keep them down. Despite what Spike Lee might have you think, there are many subtle gradations of racism, as opposed to the on-off switch of “as tolerant as a whitey can get” and “slathering Nazi Klansman”. If you read some of the accounts assembled by his offspring that have escaped the cult, he always considered getting attention and reputation the thing of greatest importance before he finally struck on his “God Hates Fags” thing. (As I recall, it was also a chance to tackle judges and other lawyers he disliked. There’s all sorts of crazy shit in the testimonials his escapees have given.)

    One specific example was that apparently when a black client was around, Phelps would say things like “Please get me the DN’s casefile, please?” He’d make it sound like a legal term, and try to use it as often and officially as possible to amuse himself. Try and decipher what it actually stood for.
