1. that is that insane bunch
I heard a bunch of vets or some motorcycle group was helping in counter protest.
These people need to be put away somewhere with people in white coats.

13. Contact the Patriot Guard IMMEDIATELY.

Bikers who really care, and will rally for any vet, regardless of his/her politics, and the vet's family as well, to help protect and defend against these whackjobs.

From their webpage:

"Patriot Guard Riders Mission Statement:

The Patriot Guard Riders is a diverse amalgamation of riders from across the nation. We have one thing in common besides motorcycles. We have an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for Americas freedom and security. If you share this respect, please join us.

We dont care what you ride or if you ride, what your political views are, or whether youre a hawk or a dove. It is not a requirement that you be a veteran. It doesn't matter where youre from or what your income is; you dont even have to ride. The only prerequisite is Respect.

Our main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each mission we undertake has two basic objectives.

1. Show our sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.

2. Shield the mourning family and friends from interruptions created by any protestor or group of protestors.

We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means.


One of the photos of a rally held at a vet's funeral in California, again from the Patriot Guard's website:

This bunch is great. Lots of info and contact stuff on their site, as well as pictures. Free to join, fellow DU bikers!!

Best of luck and keep us posted, ok? :hug:

3. Please be fair here, Phelps is hated by all but his own inbred family.
If you go and protest him this you WILL be rubbing elbows with fellow protesters of Phelps who have absolutely nothing political in common with you other than the fact that you both hate Phelps. The left and right might at the far fringe and everyone thinks they are nuts.

5. Could you site some links please. I do not believe you can find anyone, outside of Phelp's
clan, that thinks God hates fags and that is why Americans die in Iraq.

You hang around fools, I hope it doesn't rub off.

Of course I don't believe your premise or answer. Have a good stay at the DU.

17. P.S. Thanks for the nasty tone
Love that. Especially when I'm asking for a counter protest and for someone to actually DO something for a change.

but, just sit on your ass and post some more nastiness.

12. Right Winger
Edited on Fri Dec-29-06 01:59 AM by Jack Rabbit
They are right wingers.

A right winger believes in some kind of socio-political hierarchy based on what he considers to be a natural inequality among men. Homophobia, racism, sectarianism, etc., are all by definition right wing.

That seems to cover Phelps.

25. In so far that Left = Labor Movement,
it does not form a circle with the Right. It may yet seem to be a circle because the Right will coopt anything and everything if they think it helps them further their goals.

15. Well, I guess I'm using an old measurment - the Aisle
By your definition, I will concede they are right wingers. Back in the days, the only uber right wingers were the likes of Robert Welch and the John Birch Society et al.. We've come a long way, baby. :(

18. Counter protesting just gives them legitimacy.
Best to just ignore them.

19. When they could otherwise get close enough to the family...
to make their grief even more pronounced, SOMEONE needs to keep at a safe distance. Legitimacy or not.

These people are seriously disturbed. The families do not need to see them or hear their wingnut babblings while they are going through this. Ignoring them is not an option when they're standing at the graves ranting about "fags."

23. The protest and the grief it causes are real -
the only way to counter that is to counter protest.

20. She is talking about SFC Merideth Howard
The Patriot Guard Riders of California have already got this covered and plan on being there in a show of support for this family.

I've been facing these neanderthals down for over a year now and I can tell you that they get no support when they show up.
They showed up at a funeral here in Florida two weeks ago and were met with a solid wall of resistance.

We formed a flag line between them and the family and drowned out their chanting.

I am sure the California group will have this well covered.
