Thus sayeth the bottom banner on what I assume is one of the newer flyers from the odious Westboro Baptist Church.

Yes, that's right. Never ones to pass up a chance to show their rears to the world, Topeka's Finest are planning on showing up in Joplin, MO on Sunday to try and get some camera time when President Obama and Governor Nixon come to town.

Check in below the fold if you've got the stomach for it.

I know that Phelps and his crew are nothing but sick attention whores, and by even publishing this diary I am furthering their cause to some degree.  I also know that some areas have done a great job of waging counter-protests, and that the more people there are aware of their plans and looking out for them, the better chance we have of that happening.

There is already a Facebook group working on a counter-rally to keep these misanthropes contained. Please help spread the word about this event, so that we can keep the focus on Sunday on the city of Joplin and state of Missouri, and not on these misanthropic, self-absorbed freaks.

Thank you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
