These Westboro Baptist Protesters Are Very Excited About The Folsom Street Fair

10546972_10154450703785246_5788526325467225039_oThe three most common ways people deal with the Westboro Baptist Church protesters are pretty conventional: You either ignore them, challenge their ridiculous logic, or when all else fails, try to run them over with your car.

But organizers for the annual Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco have thrown all the WBC rules of engagement out the window this week, employing Shirley Phelps and the rest of her hateful clan as a brilliant street team to help spread the word about their huge sex-positive leather fetish street festival.

Below, the entire Folsom Street Fair street team, including new member Shirley Phelps, promoting “the most entertaining experience that a kinkster can have” happening next weekend at the Folsom Street Fair:

    I remember a few years back while I was living in Fresno, California we were having a problem with the KKK showing up to our annual Gay Pride Parade in their robes. Local media generally showed only two pictures in their stories. A picture of the KKK and a picture of of a very effeminate man in tight shorts and makeup. Not entirely representative of Gay Pride in Fresno.
    One year a few of my friends and I bought pink floral sheets and had them sewn to resemble traditional KKK robes. We mingled in with the KKK caring signs that read “QQQ”. The media had a field day and took pictures of us marching side by side with the KKK wearing white robes. The following year the KKK were a no-show and havn’t been back since.

    Those are funny. Perhaps this will start a new trend- selfies mocking WBC.

    I know exactly what the young people with WBC are thinking: “Those people look happier and more fun than these bitter hypocrites I’m with.” They just haven’t figured out how to break away yet.

    He does and shouldn’t belong with that crowd.

    Are the WBC folks ever going to realize just how f*ckin ridiculous they are? I do hope they’re driving the saner people over to our side! Oh, well, maybe that lost-looking young man will be found by a fine muscledaddy before the event is over.

    I lost all respect for them when they failed to show up at GG9 in Akron and Cleveland. Sure, that was probably because when you mess with a gang of repressed gay Ohio rednecks its a great way to get your ass handed to you and limp without legs to your next court appearance, but seriously they should have came anyways.

    @malerntogo: The KKK stopped coming to Lakewood years ago. The last time they came to Lakewood they had to be escorted away by police for their own safety because the police could not contain the riot that broke out that was wanting to take care of things on their own.

    I think it is just their tactic to get famous. They do this in Europe too, ya know, talk show circuit and all
