Westboro Bus Tires Flattened In Okla.
Topeka Church Members Picket Military Funeral In McAlester

McALESTER, Okla. -- Kansas church members who travel the region to protest at military funerals have been given less than a rousing welcome at McAlester, Okla.

The Tulsa World reports that a half-dozen protesters from Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., showed up Saturday in McAlester at the funeral of Army Sgt. Jason James McCluskey. After coping with what police said was more than a thousand counterprotesters, the church members found their minivan had flat tires on both the front and rear wheels on the passenger side.

Police said the tires had been slashed.

Officers said the church members were unable to find anyone to fix the flats in McAlester, and had to call a flatbed service truck to transport the van to a Walmart several miles away.

While I don't condone the slashing, I admit it warms my ol' heart to know that "We reserve the right to refuse service" is still valid.

I know - under normal circumstances I would never condone vandalism - but I think this is a special case. To me it really is about the fact none of the service stations or garages in town would fix-a-flat. I think this shows great community spirit and forethought. THAT is what I appreciate.

This tickles me and had to share it on facebook. I too don't like the tire slashing thing but think it's great so many denied them service! Karma is still watching them!

Its a shame that people have had to slash the tires themselves: I keep hoping ^He^ would step in with a well placed lightning bolt.

Or that a reporter would find out that Fred Phelps was secretly gay. That would be some fun, right there

while initially satisfying it's not a good thing really. Now they can play the persecuted martyr card.

To whom, exactly? As this incident seems to have demonstrated, no one really gives a fuck about their poor, hurt feelings. I certainly don't.

The court of public opinion has spoken in no uncertain terms. If WBC is smart they will slink back home and stay there. However, I don't think they will be all that welcome there either.

Smart and the WBC are not familliar with each other.

While I also don't condone vandalism except for a good cause I find myself wishing they found their van stolen and then no one to help them in any way until the police showed up...to arrest them for vagrancy and being a public nuisance...oh and lack of proper identification after confiscating all their ID's.

If they stopped in my restaurant, I would refuse to serve them. We don't tolerate bigotry or hatefulness.

Oh, what a lovely thought! :-) I wouldn't be surprised (in fact my intuition tells me that it's so) if he turns out to be a big fat hypocrite. I'm waiting for a scandal to erupt because someone will discover his drug use and solicitation of male prostitutes. :lol::lol::lol::lol:

I don't feel sorry for him and his inbred followers, not one tiny bit!

Maybe if more people did this, it would make a big difference.

I also love the fact that the "church" has been rick rolled many times. (I have noticed that Shirley gets mad while the younger members dance to the music. ) I wonder what would happen if someone played Queen's music at the protests or the Village People.

L.I.R.R. uses a jet engine strapped to a rail car to blast snow and ice off the tracks. I wonder if we could borrow it next time Westboro wants to show up someplace...

I swear if I had the money I would fly out there and help out the counter protesters. These a$$hats give humanity a bad name. I can't wait until one of them dies so we can all go protest their funeral.

What an event that it going to be. I'm planning on walking around with a sign that says "Free Hugs."

Best part of the Arizona story is learning about the Angel Guard. ...others are planning an "angel action" -- with 8-by-10-foot "angel wings" worn by participants to shield mourners from picketers. What a fantastic idea. I'll sign up for that honor any day.

Actually, when one of their notable members dies, I say we all show up and have a huge party with signs like "One down," "Follow (deceased Westboro member's name) example," "counting down until all Westboro joins (deceased person's name." The trick will be to keep the whole thing going like a New Orleans Jazz Funeral with loud music, partying and much fun.

While I hate these Westboro protestor fuckers, I have to say the courts are probably right. Legally right, morally these fuckers get to hide behind the law. Thing is, if we take away the fuckers' right to protest, we essentially take away our own. All these Westboro people, and I use the word "people" lightly, are going to be very surprised to find themselves burning in the deepest pits of hell.

I'm very upset with the court's decision, but there is nothing to be done about it, so, now can we sue them for emotional distress? I mean, if everybody sues them, maybe we could bankrupt them!

Here in AZ when they tried to picket the girl who was killed in Tucson a radio station talked them into not protesting but being on a radio show to keep them away. I wasn't able to listen to the show but I do know that not one person agrees with their protest. Yes they have the right, albeit 1,000 feet away. The Angel guard and the veterans on motorcycles swore they would block them. It is a shame that we are unable to stop this stupidity. Thank God for the Angels and the vets who know what it means to be an American.
Thank You Karma for the head slap, next time be a little more accurate.

Extremist Westboro Church foiled in Mississippi
by: Ryan C. Ebersole
April 25 2011

BRANDON, Miss. - Members of the far-right Westboro Baptist Church showed up here April 16 to protest the funeral of Marine Corps Staff Sgt. Jason Rogers, who was slain in Afghanistan on April 7. However, local residents caught wind of the incoming protesters, and banded together to protect the family and friends of Staff Sgt. Rogers as they mourned his loss.

The Westboro Baptist Church, led by its pastor Fred Phelps, has protested at military funerals, funerals of victims of gay-bashing, concerts and countless other events, for years. By their own count, they have participated in over 30,000 pickets. They say that God hates America for its tolerance of the lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender (LGBT) community and that dead soldiers, terrorist attacks and natural disasters - among a myriad of other tragedies - are divine retribution for this tolerance. These protests often include signs such as "God hates fags," and "Thank God for dead soldiers," as well as flag desecration.

They are not affiliated with any Baptist organizations, and are extremely critical of Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Muslims and Hindus. Needless to say this group, consisting mostly of one large family, has faced much opposition in its self-proclaimed message of hate.

However, in Brandon, Mississippi, it appears as if they may have been outmaneuvered. When they showed up, a few days before the funeral, they encountered a man who apparently was not too receptive to their message and he assaulted one of the members. When the police arrived, the beaten man was unable to give a thorough description of his assailant, and when the police interviewed the large crowd that had gathered, it appeared that no one remembered any significant detail of the incident.

The morning of the funeral, the Phelps clan discovered that several pickup trucks had parked behind their vehicles, blocking most of them in. When they searched for the drivers to ask them to move their trucks, it appeared that they were nowhere to be found. Naturally, they called the police and demanded that the trucks be towed. However, the police informed them that their wrecker was running behind, and that it would be several hours before the trucks could be towed. A few did make it to the funeral, however the police escorted them away - so that they could be investigated for a crime that they could have possibly been involved in. After a few hours of questioning (and the conclusion of the soldier's funeral) the police concluded that they were not involved in the said crime. Thankfully for the Rogers family, Staff Sgt. Rogers was buried in peace.

The Supreme Court recently ruled that these "protests" at military funerals, while tasteless and hurtful, fall under the First Amendment's free-speech protections. However, a West Virginia court acquitted a man of assault after he spit tobacco juice at Shirley Phelps-Roper (one of the leaders of the church) as the church protested the deaths of miners in West Virginia.

So, it may be legal for the Phelps group to protest at funerals, but it is also legal to spit in their faces.

I LOVE IT!!!! :aok: The Supreme Court may have upheld the law and the right to protest, but We The People are getting the last laugh here! This is the best (not to mention legal) way to handle these a$$holes.

Karma will bite you in the a$$ if you f**k with her.:snicker:

That reminded me of the story of Ken McElroy, the town bully of Skidmore, and a pretty horrible person.
He was murdered in broad daylight in 1981 with a crowd of 35-40 folks watching. They recovered bullets from at least two guns. Still unsolved......
