We’ve been haunted by these Westboro fags for nearly six years…us…veterans and the military and our families. Thankfully, our own (the Patriot Guard Rider and the American Legion Riders) have taken up the chore of shielding many families from the Westboro “Baptist” Church’s irrational and incoherent vitriol. But now, suddenly, government has discovered a way to stop them at the funeral of a nine-year-old girl;
Unanimous votes by the House and Senate on Tuesday sent the bill to Brewer. It took effect immediately with her signature Tuesday night. The new law prohibits protests within 300 feet of a funeral or burial service.
Now, suddenly, people with no connection to the wars and the military are upset;
“How dare you come with your hateful message when we’re in mourning,” Gilmer said. “Nobody comes into our beautiful town and tries to spew hate at the celebration and memorial of someone’s life.”
From the NY Post;
“It makes me sick to my stomach,” said Glen Littell, who is bringing a pack of bikers from the Phoenix Motorcycle Rider Group to Tucson on Thursday. “They’re a stench from a slaughterhouse. We’re just going to block the stench so the family can catch their breath.”
Where was all of this concern and this emergency legislation when the Westboro fags were spending $200,000 a year to send their minions to military funerals?
Indiana, Michigan, Illinios and South Dakota have passed similar legislation. George W. Bush signed and Congress overwhelmingly supported the Respect for America’s Fallen Heroes Act which has the same effect at cemeteries administered by the National Cemetery Administration.
So does a nine-year-old girl have to be murdered in every State so veterans and their families can get the same protection?
