Westboro wackos exploit Tucson tragedy to spread message of irrational hate
The Westboro wackos from Topeka, Kan. are at it again.
Fred Phelps, the head of the prolific funeral-protesting clan, released a rambling video on YouTube announcing Westboro Baptist Church’s intention to picket at the funeral of 9-year-old Christina Taylor Green who was killed in Saturday’s Tucson shooting. After watching Phelps’ four-minute rant, it’s clear that Phelps and his followers are shameless attention whores who are willing to exploit a horrific national tragedy to spread their deranged message of hate.
At the end of the video, Phelps declared with relish:
Westboro Baptist Church prays for more shooters…and more dead! Praise God for his righteous judgments in this Earth. Amen.
As a wise reader once told us: “You can’t argue with crazy.”
Amen to that!
