This week in the news...
Westboro Baptist decides to picket the funerals of those killed in the Sandy Hook shooting tragedy. Because they're worthless scum.
The Ku Klax Klan has decided to counter-picket.
This is not the first time the KKK has opposed the WBC. As many have said, you know your shit's unreasonable when the KKK steps in and goes "Whoa, buddy, too far." O.O
The online petition for the WBC to be classified as a hate group has reached enough signatures... this time. Americans, time to let your government know how you feel. Don't let the WBC shake a few religious hands, and whisper down a few back-channels at those politicians who secretly share their views, to get this petition quietly shafted. Because they can and they will if not enough noise is made about this. It's not a major accomplishment, for it won't make them disappear or change their views, but it's better than letting them get away with not being appropriately classified as the organized bigots they are.
Anonymous has declared total war on WBC.
"We will not debate, argue, or attempt to reason with you. Instead we have unanimously deemed your organization to be harmful to the population of the United States, and therefore have decided to execute an agenda of action which will progressively dismantle your institution of deceitful pretext and extreme bias. ... We recognize you as serious opponents and do not expect our campaign to terminate in a short period of time."
So, Anonymous is taking on the troubled-teen industry/gulag schools and now finally taking the kid gloves off to have at the useless oxygen thieves from WBC. This is after they stopped some dickhead trolls from trying to push a teenage girl to suicide. I think I officially have a crush on them, collectively.
Go get 'em, Anon. Let it not be said that their actions do not speak for the majority, not just of Americans, but of the entire international community; Anon's actions are not the actions of a small group with an ulterior motive. They're acting on behalf of us all. We all want to see this.
WBC, you have no friends. Not even God is on your side.
On a slightly different note...
People keep poking me about a certain political issue; one I really don't feel comfortable discussing right now. I don't know what to say about this, so I'm just going to take a deep breath and say things as they come to me...
The incident at Sandy Hook was a true tragedy, and I feel immense respect and sorrow for the staff members who did all they could to protect those kids. They were true heroes.
I can't fathom what could possibly drive a human being to harm such young children for no reason, and despite the tragedy occurring almost on the other side of the world from me and those I care about, I was still in tears as I read the news. This should never happen - not here, not in the USA, not in Africa. Nowhere.
It is too early to start politicking, folks. Keep your opinions to yourself for now, and let the world mourn this awful event without distraction of demeaning.
Oh, and journalists? Get the fuck away from those kids. Do you have no heart? No brains? You know what you're doing could cause copy-cat incidents. You sicken me. You sicken everybody.
