KKK protesting WBC?

Monday's Memorial Day services attracted the attention of the Westboro Baptist Church, the Kansas group known for its angry, and now specifically court-allowed protests of American soldiers' funerals. The demonstrators, who carry signs bearing hateful messages such as "God hates fags" and "Jews killed Jesus" are not well-liked. Not even, apparently, by the Ku Klux Klan. Members of the Knights of the Southern Cross, a Virginia branch of the KKK, gathered outside Arlington Cemetery Monday to protest the protesters. The KKK group's leader, "Imperial Wizard" Dennis LaBonte told CNN, "It's the soldier that fought and died and gave them that right to free speech."


So, even the KKK feel the need to take a public stance against the Phelps clan. Apparently the WBC was fine with the "counter-protest" because according to them (and most) the KKK has no "moral authority".

This whole situation seems like it's straight out of Saturday Night Live or something. Like the "religious" (note the quotation marks
) version of professional wrestling.


It looks like what we have here are two nationally recognized hate groups fighting over who's brand of hatred is more justified. The answer: neither. It's both comforting and disturbing to know that even the KKK denounces the Westboro Baptist Church, but this might be one of the more spectacular pot-kettle cases in recent memory. Though LaBonte insists that the Knights of the Southern Cross "are not about hate," KKK history makes that a pretty tough sell.

Honestly, I believe the KKK is trying to use the WBC's brand of crazy to say "See, we're not so bad!"

I am going to star and flag you for this one sentence.

That was hilarious. I think that these WBC people are going to see something before too long. Someone is not going to put up with it. All it takes is one grieving father, or whoever, to snap out and say "my life is over, and so is yours." Can we ever get so lucky?

I know, I was dumbfounded when I found the article. How crazy do you have to be for the other crazies to be like "Now wait just a second..."

Surely that must be the greatest humiliation imaginable when even the KKK wish to ostracise you.

I think they should just let the KKK and the WBC duke it out until there's only a few left standing. Then take those remaining to Guantanamo Bay, put them in orange jumpsuits and carry out some serious waterboarding on them.

You know it makes sense.

It would make more sense if the KKK joined them in all of their protests, with signs more ridiculous than WBC. They should pretend to like and be for all of their causes... mocking them in a way.

Now that would be hilarious.

Here is another gem, courtesy of "Imperial Wizard" LaBonte:


Dennis LaBonte, who told CNN he was a military veteran and the “imperial wizard” of a KKK chapter, said the approximately 10 members of the group came in “support of the troops.” LaBonte, who said he’s not a “hate-monger,” said he “thinks that it’s an absolute shame that [the WBC] show up and disrupt people’s funerals.”

Did I just slip into some sort of alternate reality? Seriously, not a hate-monger?

I'm sure that most normal human beings think that it's an ''absolute shame'' that a bunch of weirdos like to dress up in white sheets, burn crosses and hang mock nooses from trees.

So...

I wonder if this means the Klan is prepared to crank it up a notch on the WBC?

Firebombs and what not...

Somehow I don't think too many folks would mind.
