Westboro Baptist Church fucking suck. Like really hard. They’ve been synonymous around the world with hatred, bigotry and pure shit cuntery for quite some time now, and one of their favourite things to do is turn up to funerals and protest them. Because they’re idiots.
So, what do you do when these scum bags say their going to turn up to protest Virginia’s first openly transgender law maker? Well you use your power as a rock god to summon a horde of kazoo wielding loose units, obviously.
Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe is friends with Del. Danica Roem and also a good human being, so he set up a counter party to stick it to WBC.
“These people are coming out and speaking a bunch of ignorance about my friend,” Blythe said. “I don’t like that. So we came out and just drowned them out. That’s the easiest way. There’s no point in engaging these people.”
Only six members of WBC rocked up, and left about half an hour later when it became clear they were vastly outnumbered, both in terms of people and kazoos.
Roem was not at the protest, however she did use the oppurtunity to raise some funds for her reelection campaign.
“I set out to make the best out of a bad situation by doing what a good candidate for office should do,” she said last week. “Flip the script on something negative by raising money off of the response without amplifying the original negativity and driving a unifying message about love conquering hate.”
