See, a lot of people all over the place dislike WBC as much as you do. Other than that, the White House can't really do or say much of anything about the hateful protesters who show up at funerals and more peaceful events with bigot-laden rallies.

Take, for instance, this map of all the signers of the petition "Legally recognize Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group" -- that we built with the zip codes that people chose to share with us when they signed. The darker color indicates a higher percentage of signers for that particular area's population. While support for these petitions came from all over the country, it was densely clustered in two places that have unique insight into the actions of the Westboro Baptist Church -- Kansas, the state the church calls home, and Newtown, Connecticut, where the church threatened to picket the funerals of those killed at Sandy Hook Elementary.
Translation: These people are jerks (which everyone knew anyway), and the people who have felt that most strongly were people around Newtown, CT, and around where Westboro Baptist Church is actually located."
Westboro is a hate group and an appendage of the Democrat Party.

Meanwhile the muslim hate beasties are not even worthy of a discouraging word, let alone an actual gif.

...White House can't really do or say much of anything about the hateful protesters...
But why would they (the current occupants of the White House), being as how the Westboro Baptist Church is composed of Democrats?

Since they have that data, they should make similar animated GIFs for all of the petitions. That would be interesting to see.
