This is a video of Comic-Con fans in San Diego taking on Fred Phelps’ Westboro Baptist Church yesterday. If you have a hard time telling who donned the villain costumes, that’s because you don’t have enough geek in your life.

    How great is that??? The inbred scumbags have like five of those savage scumbags who slithered out from under their rocks to hold their pathetic signs. And the nerds have like a hundred countering showing how rediclious their vile little signs are………..Priceless!

    LOL! I love this, they turned the WEstborough into even more of a joke.

  • tomtom

    Haha they had the best counter chant “what do we want””gay sex” when do we weant it””NOW!!”

  • EdWoody

    The “Your Daddy” sign is a very random Farscape reference.

    *Sigh* Hope y’all know this is exactly what the Westboro weirdos want. They’re bigger attention-whores than Paris Hilton & Lindsay Lohan combined. This is all about how much media and blog interest they can raise…look up Megan Phelps’ attempts to piggy-back on Lady Gaga which is all over youtube and tell me these fucks are serious about religion. They’re only serious about celebrity.

  • Blah

    Epic win~

  • TonyD

    I love it! Regardless of who you are, you get picked on long enough, you get tired of the shit and a solidarity forms whether you understand why or not. lol

  • Jeffree

    Now *THIS* is how to hold a counterprotest. And get a little media attention……

  • Leigh

    My favorite sign was “The Cylons Destroyed the 12 Colonies for Our Sings.” That’s just fantastic.

  • Leigh

    Oops, I meant “sins.”

  • Aaron in Honolulu

    “Have You Seen My Keys?” LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • fuzz

    God wants a starship! ROTFL! “What does god need with a starship?” I’m sorry I missed Comic-Con this year.
