Heartless Bastards of the Day: The Westboro Baptist Church announced yesterday on their blog that they plan on sending a contingent of crazies up to tornado-ravaged Harrisburg, Illinois, to picket the funerals of those who died.
According to tipster Rachel, the WBC’s band of bigots arrived in Marion last night, “and woke up this morning to slashed tires.” The photo above alleges to show the aftermath of said slashing.
Undeterred, the church members attempted to enter Harrisburg, only to be rebuffed by local biker gangs.
As justified as any and all anti-WBC actions might seem, it’s important to remember that they are First Amendment trolls who sustain themselves with money made from lawsuits brought against individuals who try to bar them from exercising their freedom of speech.
Slashing their tires or physically preventing them from “protesting” is playing right into their hands. As much as you might hate them, you’ll undoubtedly hate yourself even more if they end up using your money to fund their hate.
