Yeah, they did that at my school, too. They come and protest whenever someone puts on a production of The Laramie Project. It's pretty much their only claim to glory any more. Because they got mentioned in it.

I was expecting a big thing, but there were only like 3 of them, and like 50 people showed up to counter-protest. I got a big bag of rose petals and threw it at them... because, you know, I wanted to throw something... and we sang Amazing Grace and the profs that showed up walked up on their side of the police barricade and listened to them talk, and then crossed the street to the counter-protest. I waved when they showed up, and waved when they left. The one girl waved back. Picking up on the ol' passive-aggressive routine. Least she learned something. ;P

People were tracking multicolored rose petals up and down the hill from the art building for months after. I was all like, "I did that!" Big Grin

they came by my town a while ago and only a few people showed up for their protest but the counter protest was way stronger. I didn't throw anything at them, though.

They only need a few people to show up. They want the attention, the more publicity the better. That's the shame of it, how can we *not* counter protest?--but it's just what they want. Catch 22?

Not really.

No one show. Let the cameras take footage of the protesters just standing there with a great void around them, as though they're just background noise like Muzak in an elevator. Let them be irrelevant, because they are.

They got no media attention near me. I don't think the local newspaper even mentioned it. The counter protest added up to pretty much us just laughing at them and walking into the movie.

It will also get you arrested as a terrorist. Don't do it.

I always knew there was something fishy about you, which was only confirmed when you moved to Canukistan, socialist hotbed. Why do you hate New Zealand America?

Have you all seen this excellent Louis Theroux documentary about the family? I really recommend it (even to you GR Smile).

ETA: Oh, I should warn it's NSFW, due to hateful rhetoric (and singalongs!).

They came to Lexington a few years ago, and the counter-protest consisted of a wall of residents, adults and students, who faced them for about a minute of their ranting bullshit, then the entire crowd turned their backs to them. Totally silent.

They set themselves up as close to the high school as possible, so it wasn't possible to simply ignore them. Nearly all the kids that walk to school had to pass by them.

I may hate the family with a fiery passion, but i love the whole angel-wings protest thing that tends to spring up around them. The original instance of it definitely brought a tear to my eye...

I agree though, they deserve no attention at all, they're so pathetic...
