Posted on 04/23/2011 2:20:11 PM PDT by BulletBobCo
The Westboro Baptist Church once again makes the headlines. This time however, the good news is that they were foiled in their attempts to disrupt another servicemans funeral. Mississippi gives the Westboro the kind of welcome that we would all like to give.
Since we have reported on the Westboro Baptist Church a few times here, it is fitting that we update you on the latest.
Last Saturday, USMC Staff Sgt. Jason Rogers was laid to rest in Brandon, Mississippi. He was killed in action in Afghanistan on April 7th. Many of the towns residents paid homage along the route of the fallen hero as his body was transported home.
Most notably absent were the Westboro protestors who planned a large demonstration at Sgt. Rogers funeral. According to an Ole Miss message board, a tidbit of info ..
A couple of days before, one of them (Westboro protestors) ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and got his arse waxed. Police were called and the beaten man could not give much of a description of who beat him. When they canvassed the station and spoke to the large crowd that had gathered around, no one seemed to remember anything about what had happened.
Rankin County handled this thing perfectly. There were many things that were put into place that most will never know about and at great expense to the county.
Most of the morons never made it out of their hotel parking lot. It seems that certain Rankin county pickup trucks were parked directly behind any car that had Kansas plates in the hotel parking lot and the drivers mysteriously disappeared until after the funeral was over. Police were called but their wrecker service was running behind and it was going to be a few hours before they could tow the trucks so the Kansas plated cars could get out.
A few made it to the funeral but were ushered away to be questioned about a crime they might have possibly been involved in. Turns out, after a few hours of questioning, that they were not involved and they were allowed to go on about their business.
Awesome. Thanks for posting.
What the westboro people do is evil and has nothing to do with God. I am so glad this town took a stand against them.
A Mississippi wax job beat a Kansas whack job any day of the week.
Sweet. Now the next step would be to discourage any live media coverage of these %$#@$%. It is the attention they want. If it is denied they will go away.
When I just glanced at the title of the thread, I thought it said “Mississippi Town Destroys Westbor Baptist Church” and I thought to myself, “dang, finally.”
Gee. What an odd set of purely coincidental occurances to have happen all at one time, in one town. I guess the Westboro bunch was remarking “WHAT A REVOLTIN’ DEVELOPMENT THIS IS !!!!” - I want to be in on the next drubbing if they come to a soldier’s funeral near us. I’m thinking something along the lines of blocking cars and tying tin cans on their back bumpers, and maybe something involving goat cheese. Our little goat, Ditzy, wants to participate some way.
Rest in peace, SSG Rogers.
The Westboro bunch are DemonRATs, Gore supporter, and lawyers championing far-left causes. In fact, old Fred himself was the recipient of multiple awards from vile, racist outfits like the NAACP.
I'm not a tin-foiler but I'd not be real surprised if I were to learn that George Soros of someone of his ilk was financing this group. The lamestream media goes out of their way to refer to this motley crew as "fundamentalist Christians". Of course, nothing could be further from reality.
“...a crime they might have possibly been involved in...”
Like the county pickup trucks suddenly refusing to run? Them Kansas cars might have has jammers or EMP devices in them. Can’t blame the locals for getting concerned.
“something along the lines of blocking cars and tying tin cans on their back bumpers”
Go to the gunshop/hunting supply store, and buy some Skunk Essence! Amazing stuff. Hunters use it to cove their human scent whilst deer hunting. I put in on a friend’s tires as a joke. He wasn’t to pleased!
The Westboroites' only source of income is lawsuits they file against organizations and governments who they accuse of violating their civil rights.
When there is civil solidarity, with no cooperating witnesses, the Westboroites are powerless. The press is their best accomplice.
And don’t forget to rub poison ivy on the door handles! I do that to my political signs. Doesn’t discourage theft of the signs, but I just watch the neighbors to see who has a case!
I think they use the church as a shield and nothing else. WOW and I didn’t know they were democrats but, I suppose I should have known. That needs to be blasted everywhere.
The kind of place you’d like to call home.
God bless ya USMC Staff Sgt. Jason Rogers.
Actually....the acts of mere coincidence are acts of God...if you think about it.
I’m basically immune to poison ivy and poison oak. A result of constant contact playing in the woods behind our house growing up.
Wonder if I could run some on my hands, show up pretending to be a leftscum fellow traveler, and shake a BUNCH of hands? LOL.
Probably illegal, so I won’t. But it’s a fun idea...
I wonder how the Westboro church gets around Jesus statement ‘blessed are they who mourn’ and how they are not declared a fraudulent church and not eligible to be getting a tax break as such.
“A result of constant contact playing in the woods behind our house growing up.”
Eggs Ackley the opposite for me! I used to be able to roll in it as a kid. Then, in my teens, working as an apprentice carpenter, the guys clearing lots burned a bunch of it. Almost ended up in the hospital!
The poison ivy worked well on my signs! Neighbor’s kid got it big time! And,,,, as a 14 year old,,,, I’d bet he didn’t just get it on his hands,,,, if ya know what I mean! 8^D
Also see the thread: Is Fred Phelps a Democrat? (Yes - supported Al Gore).
LOL re the kid.
BTW, constant exposure can result in immunity (me) or hypersensitivity (several buddies of mine and apparently you). Got one buddy who had to go to the hospital last time he was exposed to a little poison ivy. Not fun...
Definitely not! Last time I got it was during Primitive weapon/Black powder season in January, in Ohio. I didn’t think the oils would be active in the near zero degree environment. WRONG!
If somebody ever does shoot these steaming pantloads I hope I'm on the jury. They'll be home for supper and it will still be warm.
Fred Phelps has run for several offices, including Governor, as a registered Democrat. And he still is.
You’ve gotta read this. :-)
XCELLENT! I have a whole strip of poison ivy along the roadside. Finally, a good use for it!
Like - who's gonna know? They won't break out for hours
” I have a whole strip of poison ivy along the roadside. Finally, a good use for it!”
Yup! Just buy some cheap, disposable rubber/latex gloves, and have some fun!
“Boy, you a long way from Kansas. We don’t take well to outside folk stirrin’ up trouble down here ”
Thanks for the link, this will come in handy next time I need to talk to one of my democrat relatives/friends ;)
My practical jokesterism went into high gear during the last presidential election!
Make them pay! In unpleasant ways!
Keep in mind, though, that when you see a car/truck with KS plates, it's probably NOT one of Phelps' followers!
Fred Phelps doesn't care if you park behind my truck, but I DO.
Wonderful! And great ideas to keep in mind.
tak a potato and stick it in the exhaust pipe. That will make it difficult for the engine to even start. No damage to the car but they will have to remove the potato before it will start.
Excellent handling of the problem. Now to handle similar problems with Islamists.
fargin’ bastiges... we had an 19 y/o PFC from here that was KIA two yars ago... we were told the f$2&*^&ds were coming... kinda disappointed that they didn’t show...
Well played by the locals....... congrats to em all for allowing this troops family, friends and community they’re service for the fallen hero.
Well done indeed.
Stay safe 300 !!
*ping of interest*
I saw this earlier...they would have simply hanged them from a live oak 50 years ago in that county I and invited LIFE photographers
Yep. God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform . . yep . . . wondrous coincidences . . . (tee hee, I love it!)
