Well, its already starting..as you know the WBC parasites are in Joplin today..or TRYING to get into Joplin today, and that person that is supposed to be the Commander and Chief of our country is going to be there, as well..anyhoo..
Joplin is my home town, I moved 4 years ago to central Missouri, but I have family and friends there who are keeping everyone abreast of what is going on.
Here is what has already happened to the WBC scums..this is just too good to be true! )..
A biker friend here in Oklahoma just posted this on their facebook "Westboro church pukes 0 Joplin Bikers 1, he's on the way to ER!" and when asked what happened replied with this. "not sure, a large crowd beat him, then a cop taz'd him, then they loaded him up in the meat wagon. Next time he'll keep his thoughts to himself!"
They also tried to get pizza at a local restaurant last night and they refused to serve them. The entire town of Joplin establishments are refusing them service..I can tell you one thing..they picked the wrong town ..people of Joplin are tough, they ban together..and they wont be very happy protesting there..they might even go home in body bags..we have ALOT of bikers
Westboro Baptist protestors met by counter protestors
Members of the Westboro Baptist Church scheduled a protest in Joplin, Mo., Sunday. One protestor arrived around 12:15 p.m. and was accosted by counter protestors. Police escorted the Westboro member to safety and used tear gas to control the crowd.
Was tweeted this:
Truckers at the Flying J in Joplin, Mo. have the clowns from Westboro Baptist Church blocked in. Good job drivers...no hate protest today!
Thousands of motorcyclists also streamed into town from Missouri and surrounding states, many announcing their intention to block protests planned by the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church, which said it would picket Obama's arrival.
The controversial church opened a raw wound here with its announcement that those killed when a 200 mph tornado struck Joplin a week ago, now estimated at 139, "died for the sins of Missourians who have repeatedly lifted up their violent hands against God's anointed, despite plain warnings not to do so."
"We love Joplin. Joplin's hurting. Nobody needs to make it worse. They need to go home," said Mike Striegel, a biker from Joplin.
"We will take care of our town, no matter what it takes," added Herb Kirkpatrick Jr., a motorcyclist from the outskirts of Joplin.
Most of those lining miles of roadway between Joplin's main mall and the campus of Missouri Southern State University, where Obama was scheduled to speak after touring the 6-mile-long storm-ravaged area, were couples, families and groups of young people, many waving flags and posters of support for the city.
"We're trying to show respect and honor for the ones we lost in Joplin," said Charlie Brown, a co-organizer of the street rally, who said more than 20,000 people indicated on the group's three Facebook pages that they planned to attend.
"We want people to know that despite rumors that 75% of Joplin is destroyed, that is absolutely not true. We are alive. We are well. We are going to survive."
There are conflicting reports right now about why Joplin police used tear gas. We are hearing they used it against both the Westboro Baptist Church and members of the opposing rally. We also are hearing the WBC members were escorted out of the state, and that truck drivers made it hard for WBC to leave. Here is video of the rally against WBC in Joplin today before the memorial for tornado victims.
Patriots, bikers, and truck drivers showed up to show their disapproval of the Westboro Baptist Church.

Just to let you know at my church here in Cleveland today we raised about 250 dollars for the Unity church that got destroyed to help rebuild the unity that got wiped out there. Im glad that the WBC got scrubbed . They are such heathens Im glad the bikers and cops got rid of them. Best luck and best wishes to the people of Joplin.
