Westboro Baptist Church (Video)

I drove the funeral today to see the lunatics of Westboro Baptist Church protest outside of an innocent victims funeral. Luckily Huntsville had their act together and pretty much thwarted their insanity. That sultry sounding voice you hear is yours truly.

What Happened:

I know the video is pretty bad quality but here is the jist of it. Me and a buddy drove by the funeral this morning. The first time we drove by the fools from Westboro Baptist church (all 10 of them) where about a block down and on the other side of the street from the church. There was already a pretty hefty amount of police directing traffic. The funeral hadn't started yet and neither had the protestors. There were a few from the Patriot Guard roaming around but as it turned out they weren't needed. As soon as the protestors picked up there signs and went to the spot they wanted to stand and be fools, Huntsville city moved two buses in front of them so that you literally had to be 100 yards down the road to see any of them. There were other counter protestors around with encouraging signs and a few veterans that just wanted to counter anything that Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church did. It turned out o.k. The real test will be tomorrow though. The church the funeral was at this morning was farther away from the neighborhoods than tomorrows funeral. I'm not sure if I'll drive by that one and try to take pictures and bad video. I'll think about it.

At least the city saw it fit to obstruct their view from site of the funeral goers.

I especially liked that the press was not allowed to talk to the loons!

These people are a typical product of todays media circus. Just act like the most offensive clown in the room and the press will follow your act. It's the attention they crave. Like brats.

Is a police officer telling me I should assault some one?

I find it repulsive that those fools calim to be "baptists" and a "church" since thier hatred shows that they are truly neither.

Think it would be hate crime if a bunch of guys grabbed their paintbal guns and pelted those fools as they drove by slowly enough to empty their hoppers?

Those loons used to picket various churches up in Topeka. The signs they had the kids holding - disgusting.

I'm glad to hear they didn't make it near! Hopefully not the next day either... ?

Their whole trip was a bust. I hope they feel deflated and let down by the lack of visibility.

Does the video go any further than the part where you say "Yay for the good guys"? Regarding the counter protesters.
That is when it stops for me.

But none the less good job! What a counter strike those buses were. I love it!

Unfortunately I have crappy equipment. I was using a digital camera to take the video and it could only hold 45seconds of video. Next time I'll make sure I get a real video camera.

Thanks for sharing.

If a biker happens to give one of those asshats an attitude adjustment, please try and get that if you go tomorrow!!

This is off-topic for my blog, but I thought you would be interested:

The Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in North Dakota will prevent the Westboro Baptist Church from disrupting the funeral of National Guard Cpl. Nathan Goodiron. (Goodiron was killed on Thanksgiving in Afghanistan.)
