Disgusting hatemonger Fred Phelps and his sick fuckwits from Westboro Baptist Church set their sights on Comic-Con in San Diego this weekend, presumably because its fanboys and fangirls include liberals, gays and gay sympathizers. Armed with their usual “GOD HATES FAGS”, “THANK GOD FOR 9/11” and “FAGS ARE BEASTS” signs, the picketers were met with an army of Comic-Con superheroes carrying signs of their own. As a result, the Westboro Baptist protesters packed up and left town early. And good riddance.
ComicAlliance described the scene: Unbeknownst to the dastardly fanatics of the Westboro Baptist Church, the good folks of San Diego’s Comic-Con were prepared for their arrival with their own special brand of superhuman counter protesting chanting “WHAT DO WE WANT” “GAY SEX” “WHEN DO WE WANT IT” “NOW!” while brandishing ironic (and some sincere) signs. Simply stated: The eclectic assembly of nerdom’s finest stood and delivered.
