Mississippi Town Destroys Westboro Baptist Plans
Retire Like Me ^ | April 21, 2011

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 serviceman’s 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 town’s 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.”

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.

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.

What the Westboro people do is evil and has nothing to do with God. Fred Phelps and his gang of miscreants are Baptists in name only. They've appropriated that term to give cover for their leftist philosophy and street theater.

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.

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!

Several years back an adult male Westboroite opened his mouth in Kentucky. A couple of citizens put him in the hospital, where he needed to spend several weeks. It happened in the midst of a crowd. The police were unable to find any corroborating witnesses.

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’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

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!

Short of shooting the sons of bitches this was just a great outcome. Thanks to all the "good ol' boys" in and out of blue and especially the one who kicked that scumbag's @$$.

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.

Couldn't agree more with the good folks in Mississippi. Phelps and his crew deserve all they got and much more.

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.

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.
