Portland citizens overwhelm Westboro Baptist Church protest
January 12, 2015 by Michael Stone 0 Comments

Dance party: After coming to protest the Portland Trail Blazers decision to support gay marriage, members of the notorious Westboro Baptist Church were met by hundreds of joyous counter-protesters mocking the church’s message of hate.

The Oregonian reports about 20 members of the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) arrived at the Moda Center Saturday to picket the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers for its support of gay marriage – only to be surrounded by several hundred counter-protesters.

KOIN TV reports the protest was cut short when counter-protesters overwhelmed the members of the hate church.

The protest was planned for 75 minutes but so many counter-protesters showed up the members from Westboro Baptist left after less than 20 minutes.

So Westboro once again wins. They just want 1) the attention and 2) the potential lawsuits they can file.

I wonder if any of those protesters realize that WBC is running a provoke and sue scam.

And they did it without any violence that I could see, well done Portland. Imagine if this happened to them everywhere they went, they were peacefully drowned out and run off, they might just give up.
