This is fucking unbelievable. The infamous Westboro Baptist Church, haters of pretty much everything (gays, Jews, soldiers, gay soldiers, gay Jewish soldiers, tofu, gay tofu, three-legged dogs, Alan Thicke, etc.) are coming to New York City to protest… the existence of Jews. Seriously, ten morons from Kansas will be picketing outside Brooklyn Tech High School today, and plan on hitting a bunch of synagogues tomorrow and Saturday (just in time for Yom Kippur, on Monday!).
This is one of those situations where, as a Canadian, I wrestle with the American sacrament of free speech and right to assembly. I really just want a bunch of dudes with truncheons and facemasks to come along and disappear the hateful wingnuts. Or I’ll fucking do it myself.
