ZOMBIES crash a Westboro Baptist protest. Well played, walking dead. Well played!


‘Zombies’ show up to counter Westboro Baptist Church protestors

After reading this story, you may begin to see zombies in a whole new light. While they get a lot of criticism for their love of human flesh, it turns out that some zombies also go out of their way to support the troops.

The Westboro Baptist Church had recently announced that it would be holding one of its protests outside the Joint Base Lewis-McChord in DuPont, Washington. But last Friday, the controversial group was met with a far larger group of counterprotesters—dressed as zombies.

The controversial, Kansas-based church did not explain exactly why it was protesting in DuPont, but it has held a number of similar protests outside of military funerals in objection to gay rights.

That's when Melissa Neace and three of her friends organized the Facebook event "Zombie'ing Westboro Baptist Church AWAY from Fort Lewis!"



Should Chess become an olympic sport?

Timed matches, touchy-movey, that sorta thing?

I think it's time to create an entire academic competition and roll it into the Olympics. Bring in the sponsors and medals and big time name recognition.

What could possibly make this a bad idea?

So now you can call whole groups of DUers idiots... as long as you're popular, of course.

I'm sure the jury did this because they liked this guy, and not because they thought it should be okay to call large groups of DUers idiots... right?


NickB79: For all the idiots here cutting this guy some slack, I give you the wisdom of Chris Rock

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)


"For all the idiots here cutting this guy some slack" Excuse me? Calling DUers with opposing views "idiots"? This is downright blatantly insulting to DUers, please hide.


A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Sat Jul 28, 2012, 11:15 PM, and voted 3-3 to LEAVE IT ALONE.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given

Thank you.

Here's to the State of Mississippi...


Mississippi Church Refuses to Marry Black Couple

They had booked their wedding far in advance. The invitations had been sent, the programs printed. But one day before Charles and Te'Andrea Wilson were to be married at the Mississippi church they frequented, they said a pastor told them they would have to find another venue -- because they were black.

There has never been a black wedding at the First Baptist Church in Crystal Springs, Miss., since its founding in 1883. According to Pastor Stan Weatherford, some church members objected so strongly to breaking that precedent, they threatened to oust him from his pastorship.

I feel a song coming on, folks...

Sing it loud, PROTECTIONIST and proud.

What has free trade given America but a monster trade deficit, lost manufacturing jobs, a skyrocketing rise in low paying service jobs, and barely a HANDFUL of good paying jobs?

We've lost far more jobs than we've gained from this globalism bullshit, and it's apparent across America that we're not going to keep taking this lying down.

Tariffs don't go far enough. We need embargoes.

Prices will go up, so fucking what. If you have no job how are you going to afford a cheap Chinese TV? Prices will go up when foreign wages go up. In fact, the FREE TRADERS have fought to keep foreign wages down. Look at how the US Government fought wage increases in Haiti, where a lot of clothes are made. That's the side of globalism that no one wants to talk about. Our 'right' to cheaper prices comes at the expense of everyone else. Globalism is needed to make the third world a better place? Bull crap. Ask the folks who live in Linfeng, China, or the cage people in Hong Kong, how that's going.

Embargoes now, especially against nations that exploit their workers and pollute the hell out of their environment. Unless we want cheap TVs at the cost of ruining other nations' environments and keeping their people poor.

China will want access to our market. We're 20% of their exports, and they're an EXPORT-DEPENDENT economy. They'll clean up their act or they'll go bust.

Target nations that fuck over their workers and pollute their environment to get a trade advantage over us... and lock them out. Make them clean up their act.

Unless we want to continue to be responsible for this...


and this...

Enough is enough. We're protectionists, dammit. We protect our own, because nobody else is going to take care of our workers. Globalism locks Americans out of the global labor market, and even our own market, too. That discrimination against Americans must end. Now.

Can we appoint this thread as BEST of DU for the next month?

NOT mine, but THIS one:


Evasporque knocked the ball right out of the park... if you define the 'park' as this and the neighboring star system.

I wish President Obama would see this and read it aloud on the campaign trail.

Rmoney: An American Airhead in London.

An apt description, no?

Not so hot on starting the Olympics by attacking Romney

He has no right to have his name associated with such a big event as the Olympics, least of all embedded right into the opening ceremony, not even in infamy. Romney isn't enough of a human being to warrant that.

If I were going to attack Romney, I would do so by bringing up all the WORKERS who built that venue and say... "Yes, these WORKERS did build that."

Wait, what? Aurora Colorado THREE? I counted FOUR or FIVE, myself.

Of course, two of the five heroes lived, but they still deserve to be counted.

Jarell Brooks was #4.

Apparently there was also a woman who put herself in the line of fire to protect a child. #5. Can't get any info on her name, though.

I've seen stories of NEITHER on the TV news. What's up with that?

The crazy train from End Timesville has pulled in, folks.

Before you click on these links... you have been warned.

Outrage over Facebook tribute pages set up in praise of accused Colorado movie theater gunman James Holmes


I'm assuming the Daily Mail has never been flagged as a right wingnut site. I can't believe some guys are crazy enough to worship this monster.

Edit: someone says it is a RW rag. So here's a backup:

And then on the other side of the gender aisle comes this brand of batshit crazy:

Disturbing: Women on Twitter Think James Holmes Is ‘Hot,’ ‘Sexy,’ ‘Cute’


My diagnosis: We're being indoctrinated.
