Yep, Uncle Freddy’s Miserable Miscreants are at it again:
Westboro spokesman Steve Drain told Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hatewatch that the church had some commonalities with Limbaugh, although he declined to say specifically what they were.
"The ad’s message will be that America is doomed because Americans have cast aside the standards of God, and won’t quit their proud sinning," Drain explained.
Drain told Raw Story that while his organization has had their differences with Limbaugh, they were on the same page when it came to labeling Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke a slut. “Even a blind hog can get an acorn every once in a while,” Drain explained.
"That lady basically believes she wants the government to pay to kill her babies," Drain said. "That implies a certain level of promiscuity. She wants to fornicate her brains out, but she doesn’t want a child. Sounds like a slut to me, and God hates sluts."
A fox can smell its own, no? Rush Limbaugh and Westboro Baptist Church… I imagine the love story began like this:

You are going to get sued for this.
Ooh… I hope so!
Let me file my official answer to a suit which hasn’t happened with the court of the internet:
Just when you think Westboro Baptist couldn’t sink any lower…
A notoriously anti-gay church is threatening to picket Saturday’s funeral for Charlie and Braden Powell and Occupy Seattle promises a counterprotest. Margie Phelps, daughter of the Topeka, Kan.-based Westboro Baptist Church’s founder, tweeted Wednesday night that the church will attend the boys’ memorial service. The protest is to “remind” Gov. Chris Gregoire “they died because of her rebellion,” a reference to her support of same-sex marriages.
Gregoire is expected to sign into law legislation passed by the Legislature allowing same-sex couples to marry in Washington. The measure - expected to land on her desk early next week - was approved by the state House Wednesday and by the state Senate last week.
Charlie Powell, 7, and Braden Powell, 5, were killed Sunday after their father, Josh Powell, blew up his Graham-area house in a gasoline-fueled inferno when they were dropped off for a supervised visit.
A memorial service for the boy is set for 11 a.m. Saturday at Life Center Church in Tacoma.
Word of Westboro’s plans spread quickly online and Occupy Seattle sounded a call for its members to counter protest the church. The group’s Facebook page said the church “has decided to capitalize on these sad events by bringing their unique brand of hate to Washington.” Occupy Seattle said its members don’t intend to disrupt the funeral, but want to “protect it from Westboro’s abhorrent message.”
Good on Occupy Seattle. Do I really need to say shame on Westboro? Fuck Fred Phelps and his church. By the way, Westboro, God has another commandment for you:
Westboro Quiet-Types must exist and protest next to the Westboro Baptist Church.
We already have the Westboro Billionaires - they just lack signage. Besides, they’d have the help carry the sign for them.
How do you know you’re the most hate-y of the hatemongers? When the KKK counter-protests your ass:
Hours before President Barack Obama led the nation’s Memorial Day observances at the Tomb of the Unknowns, three members of the Westboro Baptist Church were challenged by others who disagreed with them - including members claiming to be from the Ku Klux Klan. The Kansas-based church has attracted nationwide attention for its angry, anti-gay protests at the funerals of U.S. military members.
Among those counter-protesting at the cemetery’s main entrance: About 10 members of a group that claims to be a branch of the Ku Klux Klan from Virginia called the Knights of the Southern Cross. They were cordoned off separately in a nearby area, but drew little attention as they gave out small American flags behind a banner that read “POW-MIA.”
They said they were there to object to the Westboro Baptist Church’s anti-troop message. “It’s the soldier that fought and died and gave them that right to free speech,” said Dennis LaBonte, the self-described “Imperial Wizard” of the KKK group that he said he formed several years ago.
