The Westboro Baptist Church on Friday was defeated by a group of apocalyptic zombies as the hate group had planned to protest outside of the Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
When the church group famous for their “god hates fags” signs showed up at the military base they were surprised to see Facebook page founder Melissa Neace and her group of zombies ready to pounce. Melissa had heard about the groups plans to spew their own special brand of hate and so she formed the Facebook group “Zombie’ing Westboro Baptist Church AWAY from Fort Lewis!”
Neace tells Nerd Bastards:
“We wanted to turn something negative around, into something people could laugh at and poke fun at, it was the easiest way to divert attention from something so hateful.”
The group quickly became a success and more than 300 zombie showed up in the hopes of chomping down on some Westboro Baptist Church brains but instead settled for blocking the hate groups eight picketers.
The zombie protesters were careful to follow the Facebook page’s please for no violence which insisted:
NO violence, NO throwing of objects, NO launching of objects, NO PHYSICAL CONTACT WITH ANY MEMBER OF THE WBC. Don’t even speak to them! This is for your safety, these people are sue happy and will look for any reason to sue you! WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS! Please act like adults!
Westboro shows up at military funerals to claim that god is killing American soldiers because of the United States’ tolerance towards homosexuality.
Here’s a video from the protest, enjoy the awesome Zombie aspect of the fight against outward hate:
I personally like the “Drink the Kool-Aid Already!” sign.
