KKK Members Stand Up To Westboro Protest At Arlington Nat’l Cemetary

Think the world’s not coming to an end this week? Well, the Klu Klux Klan stepped up to confront the Westboro Baptist Church this week, when the WBC protested a military memorial.

Now we’ve got common ground with the KKK. Oh joy.

On Monday, as President Obama honored fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery, three protestors from WBC held up signs nearby reading “Pray for more dead soldiers” and “God hates your prayers.”  (WBC has also promised to picket Sandy Hook Elementary School, the site of Friday’s massacre.)

But among the dozens of counter-protestors at Arlington was a group led by Dennis LaBonte, an imperial wizard of a regional KKK chapter. LaBonte said his group came “to support of the troops” and that “it’s an absolute shame [for the church to] show up and disrupt people’s funerals.”

In response, WBC member Abigail Phelps said the Klan has no moral authority: “The Bible doesn’t say anywhere that it’s an abomination to be born of a certain gender or race.”

So we’ve some common cause with the Westboro Baptists, too. Why can’t we get them to protest KKK meetings?

      Hate group battle royal, two nutbag organizations enter… only one leaves. Now taking all bets,, I’ve got five to one against the WBC. sure the KKK’s average member is a lot older than the WBC but they have numbers and firepower.

      I hate all those people too, but the story you’re linking is from the middle of last year.

      Now if only the KKK would burn down one particular church in Topeka Kansas. And a nice burning cross as a Christmas decoration would top it off nicely.
