Most of us are familiar with Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist "Church" from their hate-filled protests of funerals and other occasions around the US. Often times counter-protesters will show up and try and drown out their disgusting rhetoric and hide their signs.
Phelps' gang were in San Francisco last Thursday "protesting" at the Twitter headquarters and were met by a large contingency of counter-protesters with some of the best signs I have seen in a long time.
WBC’s hate-promoting signs were answered by multiple signs of randomness, nonsensical yelling, and even a unicorn. A portable stereo blared Lady GaGa, while press and people passing by ignored the WBC signs and took pictures and videos of the more entertaining signs.
The counter protest was so successful that Westboro called off their second protest at a Fiddler on the Roof performance scheduled for later that evening.
Check out some of the photos and the article about the protest -- they are brilliant! Other photos are here. Not shown in the photo are signs of "GOD HATES #TAGS" and "THESE RAILS DONT SCALE" and I'm sure many other good ones. I would LOVE the opportunity to protest these losers in the future!
Now with more sign photos!
