Bigots protesting against gay rights set fire to lawn of General Mills' corporate headquarters

&feature=youtube_gdata_player

God, these people are idiots. If Occupy protesters had done this people would be sitting in jail right now and FOX News would be running this video in an endless loop.

1. That's hilarious!

Dumbass sets fire to a box of Cheerios, which he describes as the treat of homosexuals; then the fire gets away from him onto the lawn, and he yells "Get in the car!"

5. They are on the opposite side of Chic-Fil-A

General Mills recently spoke out in favor of same sex marriage and encouraged people to vote no on a statewide Constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage in Minnesota.

6. There are several threads on this and the consensus is that this was staged.

Just several people's opinions. When I saw it I thought it was fake, too. I mean, if they were real and angry, all that laughing wouldn't take place. IMHO, that is. Still silly whether it's real or not.

11. Got any links?

The only other video on this channel is an extended cut of the same vid:



Although it does support my theory that if it's not staged (as I have been suggesting it is) that the people filming are his kids, and they've posted it as a prank on dopey ol' dad.

12. Back in college my friends coined the word "awesomestupid"...

...and I'm amazed at how often it's really been the only word to properly capture a moment and describe it. Like this.

That was just awesomestupid.

17. Anti-Gay Marriage Activist Who Set General Mills Lawn Ablaze Dies



Man Who Set Fire To Cheerios Box On General Mills’s Lawn Dies

Michael Leisner, who botched an attempt to burn a box of cereal on the lawn of General Mills, has died of a heart attack.

Leisner posted video of his act online, with it showing him scrambling to stomp out the flames before he hurriedly instructs his off-camera friends to get in the car. The video made its way onto cable television’s “The Daily Show” and “Chelsea Lately.”

Leisner died Saturday while waiting in his car for his sons to finish playing tennis, said Dwight Denyes, senior pastor at Emmanuel Christian Center in Spring Lake Park.

I do feel sorry for his kids though. Imagine coming from tennis to find you dad sitting dead in the car...
