Westboro

That garbage group of hate mongerers has announced that they will picket JoePa's funeral. Words cannot describe the utter disgust that I have for these people, who in the past have dishonored our heroic dead, and to think that they are coming to throw dirt on Joe's casket, well.....yeah.


Something I ponder everytime I see they are going to show up and spout vitriol at a funeral service, is what can be done to stop them? I can't imagine the pain that these military families go through when they have to bury their child, and to have these scum there on top is just a horrible crime. Now I know that the Supreme Court has ruled to uphold the constitution, and that these flecks of dogshit have the right to protest at funerals, but I think that an equal and opposite "protest" could also be done as a countermeasure.

The idea: peaceably assemble a group of "protestors" who will go and stand in front of the Westboro trash as a human barricade, so that the family and friends of the deceased do not have to see this type of nonsense at a time like this. And of course, I stress the words PEACEFUL PROTEST. I believe this could be done, with a group of say 20 men, standing silently as these idiots go berzerk. It would show this group that they're shenanigans will not be tolerated, and show support for the deceased & their kin, in an honorable way.

Now the obligatory "hey I'd love to be there and start this but I, er, uh..." I always envisioned being able to go to a public memorial to pay my respects to Joe & his family, but I was a younger man then without a wife, child or job that doesn't permit me to travel to State College to do so. I trust that there are many others who are in the same boat, therefore I'd suggest a student initiative to make this happen. One of many things I can say about our students is that they have done an excellent job assembling and showing support for Joe & our school. I'm not exactly sure where to go with this to get students involved, so I decided to post it here. Thanks to all for the consideration of this request.
