    No confrontations, no counter-protests, and NO media coverage whatsoever.  This is what they want, what they CRAVE.  An asshole with a sign is nothing if nobody pays attention to them.

    •  That's why they picket funerals. (0+ / 0-)

      It's easy enough to ignore them when they're just jackasses braying on a random street corner.  But when they're harassing people during their moments of deepest grief, screaming hate when people most need to be surrounded by love... it's hard to ignore them.  And thus the instinct to separate them from mourners.
