    WBC is nothing more than a bunch of trolls. The publicity they get is the publicity we give them.

    •  (?) hey these are not trolls.... (4+ / 0-)

      ....trolls are petty and self-obsessed. I can stand down to a troll easily; I'm bored and can go to sleep.

       But these dogs are the definition of hate... if hate exists. This is your wake up call.

      •  protested them before (5+ / 0-)

        When they came to Seattle to protest the death of my rugby team coach, who died of lung cancer and happened to be and coach a gay team. There were like 2 of them at the protest. They were pathetic. Sad desperate individuals who used the tragic demise of someone dear to me for self aggrandizement. They use our anger at their message to feed controversy and get them free media. Sadly, they've gotten quite good at it.  As well, it has been reported here and elsewhere that several of the clan are lawyers and this is a money making scam for them.suing those who infringe their free speech rights.

        So I stand by my statement.  They are utter pathetic trolls, and they use our anger like parasites to amplify their hate. I agree it is necessary to have a counter message. I am sure the great people of occupy Seattle, Tacoma and elsewhere  know all this and will have a positive counter story.
