    I'm actually wondering why Phelps hasn't been killed yet. He invokes so much hate in people I'm SURE someone would have shot him long ago.




    You mean kill him and turn him into a martyr? Better to leave him alive show him when he's 80 wearing a Depends Diaper.

    yeah, thats true. that is why i think the worst thing imaginable would be for someone to assassinate bush.

    Don't forget being put in a retirement home and his nurse being completely and utterly over-the-rainbow gay.

    Justice, my friends.

    @Scribe: Good point. I guess it will be more worth it to see him being kept alive in a degrading state.

    Another thing...what with all their anti-immigration campaigns...they DO know that their families date back to immigrants right? Right? "American" isn't really their background. I'm reminded of an article I read a while ago in which the author, whose web site was filled with swastikas, called a German politician a "Fucking kraut faggot". That just makes me want to either cry or laugh.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Now if you could go back in time a few years and then kill Bush it would be different.

    One good thing about these whackos is they help us keep our free speech rights.
    If we did not have nutjobs like the Phelps pushing the limits we would not know where the line was.

    In Canada we have an awful hate speech law that punishes people for having political opinions the government does not like.
    If you make holocaust denying illegal it gives it far more credibility than it would have otherwise. Treating them like the Phelps
    as silly morons would be more effective and would not violate free speech.

    Prussian Blue is just the nazi version of a awful stage mother. When they turn 18 that would be a terrific porno.

    Don't even get me started on the whole immigration debate. The assholes that be want to make English the official language. My theory is, if you want an official language let's make it something like Navajo. If anything, it would make C-Span interesting to watch when they attempt to introduce a new bill and no one knows the language.

    A gentleman's agreement within the media to simply ignore the fuck out of them would probably piss Phelps off more than any amount of lawsuits.


    this hits it right on the head. they're deliberately trying to be as outrageous as possible so that people will be pissed off enough to spread their stuff around and make them even more famous. the internet is these people's best friend.

    I'm gradually coming around to the notion that the way to end all this anti-gay crap is for the queers to buy guns. they could be the little pink sisters of the NRA.

    Well hey, hasn't that on-line group "Anonymous" been packeting the shit out of the Scientology website? Why isn't this being done to the Westboro site as well?

    Can't really make a martyr out of web page now, can you?

    Other lowlights include April Gaede teaching her 3-year-old daughter Dresden

    They named their child DRESDEN? For people so obsessed with bloodlines they really don't read up on history too much do they?

    <blockquote>They named their child DRESDEN?</blockquote>

    I believe it was to pay tribute to the victims of the perceived 'war crime'/Hiroshima of the German people.

    Or they're dumb white trash. Neither one would surprise me more than the other.

    I am wondering if this is not just Westboro blowing smoke up the collective asses of people. Most of the time when they announce a protest, they don't end up showing anymore.
    I am also pretty sure that Austrailian officals would deny them entry into the country, much like the United States does to radical religious malcontents it has problems with.

    Thinking too much about these nut groups can be hard on the digestion.

    For relief, I recommend Landover Baptist Church.

    I'm just not surprised by all the crazy cults and religious fanatics that arise here in the states. Its what we get for being a country founded by religious outcasts and witch-burners. We could also look at this current picketing situation as as post-colonial standoff: Prison Colony Vs. Religious Whacko Colony, both of us were voted off the Island.

    Also I don't find basic Christianty to be offensive in any way, just it's current form. Christianity lost all relevance when Constantine leagalized it. Before then it was the most counter-cultural and subversive undercurrent in the Roman Empire, it was Punk Rock for the 1st century. When it became instutionalized and brought to the mainstream it was fucked up.

    I never thought of that, but the more I do...holy shit, it makes perfect sense.

    I would die happy.

    I also wouldn't be surprised to find that phelps is a closet-case. He's so obsessed with "teh gay" that it makes me wonder when his drug addict male prostitute will show up.

    I'd watch it. It could be the nazi version of Teenage Twins.

    Oh, fuck. I just read they're from Fresno, CA. That's where I live. Ugghhh. Another reason to hate this shit hole.

    Also, that documentary mentioned earlier can be streamed from here.

    I find it ironic that the very thing that these idiots preach against i.e darwinism and natural selection will bring about the end of them. Think about it, given that they have such a small gene pool (especially phelps and his "church") they will probably fuck themselves into extinction. The sooner the better

    To really gorge yourself on crazies, I hearthily recommend having a browse at the High Weirdness Project. And if the Darwin Awards didn't make you loose faith in humanity already, check out their indispensable Bulldada Newsblog.

    Ironically, when I follow this link the Amazon page includes this ad:

    Valentine's Day: No matter how you feel about the holiday, you can save up to 35% on the movies that mean Valentine's to you.
