Zombies Take On Military Funeral Protesters (Video)

Video

Zombies For The Troops


Westboro Baptist Church members, best known for protesting military funerals, got more than they bargained for when they held an anti-military demonstration outside Joint Base Lewis-McChord near Seattle on Friday. A well-organized group of more than 300 zombies staged a counter-protest in support of the troops, grabbing the media spotlight so eagerly sought by WBC. You can watch a KIRO-TV report on the protest above.

The zombie demonstrators have now transformed into a Facebook group called "Zombie'ing for our Troops." Organizers hope their spirit of protest catches on around the country:

I have decided that the most violent free way to protest back is simple... a zombie apocalypse...

If they (the military) can stand before us against terrorists in other countries, the least we can do is stand in front of them against terrorists in America.

So Westboro Baptist Church, you've been warned. The undead are not happy with you.

I came face to face with Shirley Phelps-Roper a few years ago when she was in San Diego for one of her loony protests.

I was armed with a long list of things I wanted to say to her face, and was actually looking forward to seeing the comic relief this fringe freak seems to attract everywhere she decides to pull out her signs.

However, I was un-prepared for what happened when I came face to face with her.

I actually felt sorry for her, and I just walked away with a sad feeling not wanting to engage her.

She is not well. A **severely** mentally Ill person. I was never quite sure if she was just an attention seeker, or if she was really disturbed.

Mee ting her in person reveals the later, she is a profoundly sick woman who needs extensive mental treatment.

And what she is doing to her kids is terrible.

She is literally turning her kids into crazy people just like her by dragging them to these protests and forcing them to say hateful thing at very lung ages.

**Why has child protective services not rescued these children. Yet from this mad-woman??**

I heard about the Hells Angels doing a counter protest. I like this one too, very creative. Maybe we can get a group of Pastafarians to counter-protest next time.
