Skip to comments.Texas A&M students create human wall to block Westboro Baptist protesters

Many shades of red are normally associated with anger, however, on Thursday, a "wall of maroon" was a show of love and respect in Texas. Lt. Col. Roy Tisdale, a Texas A&M University graduate in 1993, was killed during a training exercise at Fort Bragg on June 28. During a safety briefing in North Carolina, Lt. Col. Tisdale was shot and killed by a fellow soldier who committed suicide.
Family members and friends were shocked at the loss, claiming that with all of the deployments Tisdale had, they never thought anything would happen to him at home. The Westboro Baptist Church, on the other hand, planned a protest at Lt. Col. Tisdale's funeral. Westboro Baptist Church is known for protesting at military funerals, claiming the soldiers "are dying for the homosexual and other sins of America". Alumni of Texas A&M University refused to let this happen.
Ryan Slezia, a fellow "Aggie", organized "The Maroon Wall" using social networking sites like Facebook and WhereEvent with the help of Lilly McAlister and Chris Rowan...

Good job Aggies!
Eat that, Phelps family. America doesn’t like you.
My Aggie wasn’t able to attend, but she had several friends who were part of the wall.
Gig ‘em Aggies!
Gig ‘em Aggies.
Some Americans do.
I don't know about these particular soldiers but have a feeling a lot of Americans are going to die when God punishes for this and other transgressions.
I honestly wish those people would fall into a pile of razor and barbed wire and accidentally light the 50 gallons of kerosene under them.
Hats off to Texas A&M! Don’t mess with Texas.
This explains a few things. Considering their main schtick is that we’re gong to hell because of our tolerance of homosexuality, you would think when the DoJ announced they would not enforce DOMA and DADT was reapealed they would’ve loaded up the van with their “G-d Hates fags” picket signs and high-tailed it to DC faster than Kyle Busch on steroids. Or were they ordered by the DNC to stand down?
Funny that these vermin don't actually protest at homosexual events...
Nor have they ever shown up at soldiers’ funerals in Harlem, East LA, Newark, Detroit, or, lets get real here, any neighborhood that has a MLK Blvd. running through it. One of those things that make you go HMMMM.
Yes! These people (and Hussein’O’s pastor)give
Christianity a bad name.
They’re an entrenched, connected false flag RAT operation that richly, richly deserves what’s coming to them.
When God says ‘do not take my name in Vain’, this is what he’s talking about, not cussing.
Gig’em Aggies, WHOOP!!!!!!!
Heck yeah. I’m so proud of being an Aggie !
I thought I read somewhere here on FR that they don’t actually care about protesting anything. The idea is to provoke a lawsuit, so they can make money by suing people who object to their protesting, and getting a settlement. That would explain in part why they only appear in “easy” venues, where someone may have deep pockets.
Thank you, Aggies!
That's pretty much the case. Lots of lawyers in the Phelps clan and those people do know the law. In fact, patriarch Fred Phelps was a civil rights attorney who battled against Jim Crow laws. Odd bunch, these folks. I still think one of these days they're gonna cross paths with someone who has nothing left to lose and that'll be the last we hear from the Westboro Baptist Church.
Thank You A&M. I’m proud to have Patriots like you join The Southeastern Conference.
Theyre an entrenched, connected false flag RAT operation that richly, richly deserves whats coming to them.
I wonder if this passage is missing from the Westboro Bible?
Proud of all the Aggies who stood up to those spawn of Al & Tipper...
One day those Westboro freaks will have to answer to Him.
Westboro is nothing but a bunch of extortionists.
