Soldier Protects Old Glory From Being Disgraced By Westboro Baptist Church

So at the funeral today for Fallen Soldier Sgt. Johnson a Westboro member decided it would be smart to stomp on the American flag. A Soldier did not take kindly to that and broke through the line, hitting one of the protesters that was disgracing Old Glory. As he was being arrested, two other Soldiers rescued the flag. The first video was filmed bu a friend of mine, the person you see jumping around with the flag is also a buddy. The second video was made by another person there to protect the funeral it is a little clearer. The person you see jumping around right before the Soldier runs in and clocks the member is a friend of mine. The Soldier was not charged and later released.

  1. I just hope the guy doesn’t get sued by Westboro. Fred Phelps’ daughter is a lawyer and that’s one way they make their money.

          • Unfortunately, desecrating the flag is protected under the First Amendment to the Constitution… In America, we have the right to burn, rip, wrap in garbage, or stomp on the flag, but we are not allowed to desecrate the people doing it.

          • It isa not against the law to desicrate the flag. The WBC will go after that guy in court. They are horrible people who will use this as a way to get their message in the news. And before you light into me for supporting them, I’ve been to hundreds of funerals for KIAs and Vets. I’ve organized flag lines so the family would not be able to see those knuckleheads. I’ve proven how against them I am.

          • Disgracing the flag is a freedom of speech and is protected UNTIL it incites violence. Then it is against the law.

          • I’m a US Marine, and 6 months prego!!! Lets go beat the shit out of the Westboro Church!!!! I’ll have this baby in Jail to yet again stand up for my Country, Flag and Brothers and Sisters in Arms!!!!!

          • I am a veteran of the USN. Anchors away and fist flying. We have a saying in the armed forces if you all recall. “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of all who threaten it.” It is not just a USMC battle, this is a battle of Americans and those who should be sent to war. What do we care if they die over there, they are not protecting anything. One more thing, it is not illegal to desecrate the United States Ensign, it is simply frowned upon severely by millions of people.

      • They can sue all they want. I was a witness and the protestor threw the first blow. I am blind and live in Portland Oregon but thats my testimony and I would bet at least 100,000,000 other people who were there saw the same thing.

      • He was trying to save the flag from being destroyed.. It is illegal to do what they were going to do. He was trying to uphold the law.. AND HE was arrested.. NO this is BS they need to apologize and release him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He should sue the police and the Westboro church for this.

      • you ppl are so dirt dumb. the supreme court ruled that burnign the flag is a protected form of expression. Texas v Johnson 1989. What you did was strong arm robbery and theft. WBC usually declines to press charges and leaves it up to God. I cant wait to see how God puts a smack down on NC in the weeks to come. Oh and BTW the stinking anus licking dyke is still dead and still in hell. too bad you couldnt do something about that.

        • Sir , you have just proven to every body on this site how stupid you really are , if you want the freedom to burn a flag fine, but be prepared to have some else exspress there right to show how mad it makes them. Also she may be a (dyke) but she has done more for us then you will do any day, and that makes her better in the American peoples eyes then anything else. you may not agree with her descisions, I dont agree with eher descisions, but im not going to put her down for that. If your such a good christian the you will forgive like jesus forgave a roman, and a whore. Actually he save her from stoning, so if you are so righteous then please cast stones, but you arent so please shut your mouth, cause all i smell coming out of it is the stink of hypocrocy.

          • remember, answering them is giving them power. If you leave their comment hanging alone on the internet without acknowledgement, then they lose. Obviously they are not practicing christianity in a way that is familiar to anyone outside their circle, so if you must respond to them, respond with questions, not statements. Try asking, why do you think that 1 sin is worthy of damnation, or why do you think that being attracted to women makes a person unworthy of god’s unconditional love?

          • Clint, You are correct, we shouldn’t say anything but sometimes it is hard to re frame from comments of the educationally challenged.

        • “22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
          23 meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23

          “4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up;
          5 doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
          6 rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
          7 beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
          8 Charity never faileth. ” I Corinthians 3:4-8
          (charity is another word for love)

          “20 Therefore, by their fruits ye shall know them.”
          Matthew 7:20

          What “Fruit” were they exhibiting that day?

          Oh and there is one more:

          “12 Therefore, all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the Law and the Prophets.”

          If this is not clear then basically it says “HE GOT WHAT HE ASKED FOR!”

          Enough said?

        • I wonder if you won’t press charges when someone lobs a molotov cocktail into your crowd of ignorant incest babies? Stay out of AZ, or you are likely to find out. And, unlike you, i’m not some coward who needs to hide who I am because I say ignorant shit and am afraid of repurcussions.

        • The only reason you have the right to say such hateful things, and those crazies had the right to protest at the funeral is because of people like Donna who were willing to go and die for our freedom and the right to say what we want how we want. You are a sad sad person, and I will pray for you.

        • Anthony, unfortunately you do not know God the Father, or His Son. I am going to share the truth with you, straight from the Word Of God, some quotes spoken by the Savior. Why is He called Savior? Because He gave up time with His family, His Father, and His friends, Moses and Elijah, who visited Him once, and because He came to be obedient to His Father, following His orders (the Law) perfectly, never failing, and for the express purpose of dying for His friends, none of whom are able to live perfectly righteous lives. Because He knows that those willing to sacrifice something for others is doing what He did, He explained it like this, “Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15) So, when someone serves and dies for others, not for themselves or any reward, they are listening to the Son and the Father, hearing the call to live accordingly.

          The Bible says that we are to turn the other cheek when WE are personally attacked or robbed. The Bible does not say to stand idly by when our family or friends are in danger. Jesus permitted Peter to take the sword with him when they went to the Mount of Olives and did not rebuke him when he cut off a man’s ear. (He did put it back on, though) When the Savior returns, He will not be a servant, He will be a warrior King of Kings and Lord of Lords who avenges the death of the innocent and destroys the enemy of Israel. With Him come the armies of heaven. Who is in His army? Those who hear His call to lay down their life for their friends. Revelation

          As for stealing the flag, seems that if someone is stomping on it or burning it, doesn’t want it and aims to destroy it, and the flag belongs to all who are citizens and citizens who defend the nation have the job of defending the flag that represents the nation. So if someone is burning the flag or stomping on the flag practicing their right to free speech, then the one defending the flag is also practicing their right to free speech portraying that the flag is to be defended just as the nation is to be defended.

          Those who serve our nation are portraying the life of the Son with their own. They will be honored by the Son and the Father because they honor the Son and Father through their lives.

          Maranatha!

          • The real point here is that another Military person has been killed for the greed of American corporations. My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Sgt.Donna Johnson. I support our Troops, BRING THEM HOME NOW, ALIVE. There is no greater pain than having to bury your beloved child. I wish people would stop posting the dispicable acts carried out by the Westboro church. All you are doing is giving them the attention they crave.
            Fran

          • Jesus doesn’t wna tyou to be abused; even he upon being tried to be arrested inside the temple did he slip away preventing getting arrested/tried.
            Do not tell us to turn the other cheek 77x. WE stand for freedom, but were my rights ends yours start. Respect is respect. I find it so offensive having a church protest at a funeral, shame on all of them. I would not have been able to stay quiet and do nothing as my flag USA was trampled upon. I am so sorry for all the soldiers of all wars that USA has fought and having these losses are more deeply felt for the price they paid for our freedom. God bless you all and USA.

        • since you seem to know everything tony, why dont you nut up and come out of whatever hole you live in and come to nc and we will see who god smacks down.my first assumption is your a fag yourself and you love attention, well you will get no more from me unless you come to nc to see who god decides to smack down. were all waiting, fag

        • maybe if we just start beating you freaks asses every time you disrespect another human being and their family you will stay away.Even dogs learn to stop doing what causes them repeated pain. Might take a few ass beatings and incarcerations and cost judicial backlogs and lawsuits. But so what sometimes it takes risk and penalty for the right reasons.Just look at our founding fathers,or even Christ himself.

        • Anthony Anthony Anthony…this PAGAN forgives your ignorance. I understand when it comes to blind devotion and fanaticism. I also know what it is like to hate so badly that nothing else can enter your heart. It is a cancer that eats away at you to the point you can not do anything but desecrate and destroy.

          See, my mother was a foster mom. I saw many of these poor abused children who felt as if there was nothing left to do but act like a rabid dog. For you to truly find peace, you must understand your hatred of those you are jealous of must be purged.

          From the poorly written response I can tell you have had very little schooling. I can tell you one way to free yourself is to give up the ideals of others. Think for yourself. Read outside the box and ask yourself if what you have been programmed to believe is true.

          Considering you cannot believe truly in a Judeo Christian god of love with the ideals you spout, perhaps a pagan god of Anger may in fact work better for you? I can tell you from my point of view – the God you appear to worship is actually ashamed and hurt by your viciousness. Think about this…and if you wish to let go your self loathing, let me know – you can in fact be free.

          • Bright blessings to a fellow pagan. I also served proudly and have always support our services no matter the branch. Would lay down my life yet today to protect even those who have fallen and come home to be interned with family. WB bring your incest, polygamy ass to TN and see how the good ol’ boy system is still in use today.

        • haha anthony capo… wbc (wussy bitchin cunts) are not a church! in MY bible it says do not judge lest ye be judged and that is all this cult is doing! all you people are doing is making yourselves more hated every day! i am glad that i along with many of my fellow brothers and sisters are protecting your backsides! you people will be judged by the harshest judge around! GOD!!! you live in America yet you act like you dont want to be here! go live with the terrorist fucks that are trying and killing Americans all the time! i dont care what you say to me but when you disrespect old glory and every that has fought and died to protect it then you are the dirt dumb little pussy hiding behind your words and your little signs!
          all you can do is talk and rally people up well guess what, you all are just a bunch of little bitches!

        • You know, I wont pass judgement on you because the almighty one true God has the final say. I know you don’t care what any one says about you because you believe you are right and are following God’s commandments. So do the suicide bombers. I’m sure you’ll meet them when you get your “reward”.

        • She is NOT in hell, you disgrace to Italy. If you were so up on the law, you’d know that there can be a robbery or a theft, but not both. BACK TO YOUR BRIDGE, TROLL!!! You have NO power here…

        • So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
          John 8:11

      • The US Flag Code is voluntary. There is no penalty for violating it, and SCOTUS has ruled it is a protected act of expression.

        I agree with this, because it lets us easily identify assholes.

        A prohibition would be against the principles of the Constitution, which restricts the government but not individuals. It would be unenforceable, because the US Flag is described very specifically by color, shape and pattern. Any variation would make the item not legally a US flag, and it could still be desecrated without violating the law.

        I strongly support the response of letting desecrators know exactly how we feel.

        It’s a shame that guy tripped and banged his face on the Soldier’s fist.

        • hey, Bulldog, is there anyway we can get a +1 or a “like” system here?

          I would like to give a +1 to “I agree with this, because it lets us easily identify assholes.”

      • I’m no lawyer….buta phrase “extreme emotional distress” keeps going thru my mind. If charged couldn’t a good lawyer get the man off by saying he was under “extreme emotional distress”?

        • The word you’re thinking of is Duress. And yes, a good lawyer could get him off on that and many other things. The problem (for wbc, that is) is that if he were to be charged and it were to go to criminal trial, there would be a box full of 12 “peers” deciding if he were guilty. Unless any of those peers happened to be in the ridiculous wbc, or were a total nutjob, the vet would not be found guilty.

        • Every state in the union has a law against public desecration of the US Flag, this happened in NC and this is their law…North Carolina: Desecration of a flag is a misdemeanor that occurs when someone casts “contempt upon any flag of the United States or upon any flag of North Carolina by public acts of physical contact including, but not limited to, mutilation, defiling, defacing or trampling.”

        • Every state in the union has a law against desecration of the flag in public….North Carolina: Desecration of a flag is a misdemeanor that occurs when someone casts “contempt upon any flag of the United States or upon any flag of North Carolina by public acts of physical contact including, but not limited to, mutilation, defiling, defacing or trampling.”

          • Nope…you’re wrong. The states cannot make a law in direct opposition to the constitution. Everything you read on the internet is not true, regardless what that woman in the commercial says.

          • Tim, this was not in a commercial…I assure you I am not wrong, It is a LAW. Please do a little more research before you come here spewing about something you seem to know nothing about. That came directly out of the North Carolina Statutes, not the internet as you seem to think. Until the law is challenged as Unconstitutional it stands and has been used in several southern states. Researching state law is one of my hobbies so I assure you, you are the one that is wrong. Although most times it is not enforced, most Flag laws say you can do it in your home, but not in public. Research is an awesome tool!

          • Tim, Tim, Tim, Oh how mis guided you are.

            The wonderful thing about our Constitution and the breakdown of the judical system is that; yes States can make laws in direct opposition to what the US Constitution says. There have been numerous times that various amendments to the US Constitituion have been violated or chipped away at by the states all in the name of good. Just look at the arguement over freedom of speech and the cities or states that suppress said freedom in the name of civility. One could also bring up the pR0n angle as well, where by the US Constitution is constantly violated, Larry Flint withstanding, as with the idea of community standards will set the tone of what is or could be published.

            Lets also not talk about how numerous cities or states have violated the 2nd Amendment in thier attempts to lower crime or bring peace to the city. Then there is the 4th Amendment violations in places like NYC with the random street stops by cops in high crime areas and warrantless searches or the border patrol/CHP in places like CA or AZ stopping people looking for green cards.

            All it takes to over turn the law then is someone to bring suite. Go to court, until that happens the law stands.

          • Tim, so you can shut your ignorant mouth about the law here you go.

            Per N.C. Gen. Stat. Sec. 14.381 which falls under Article 52 “Miscellaneous Police Regulations”

            The State of North Carolina makes it a Class 2 misdemeanor for anyone to mutilate, defile, deface or trample upon the U.S. flag or the North Carolina state flag.

            If you choose to act like you “know” what you are talking about, first you need to actually know what you are talking about, second you need to do a little research before you make yourself look like a moron.

            Before you think you can continue to refute any claims please remove your head from your fourth point of contact and fix yourself

    • I feel we need to make a stand that , yes, it is your right to do this, but we aren’t going to stand by and watch you do this anymore, as with anything, there is a price for your freedoms, because freedom isn’t free….and I think that patriots that do this should receive financial help if they are willing to step up, just $2 from each and every one of us that feels this way will provide a good defense for them, because there are so many.

        • I agree. It’s a shame we can’t bring back our fallen heros. I would like to know why you believe that she is in hell, though. The only unpardonable sin is blasphemy. Some might think that Westboro is guilty of blasphemy for manipulating the law of both man and god for personal financial gain is blasphemy. What do you think about that?

          • Don’t know what church taught you that crap but I’m glad I don’t go to it. What good is forgiveness if you can’t forgive blasphemy….wow…

        • You pathetic assholes are full of such hate, hate towards people that fight for your freedom just so you can talk shit behind their backs. Its pathetic really. And cowardly. I’m woman, married to a veteran man, with a beatiful son who has no idea there are people like you out there..but let me tell you, If I had a choice to be gay or to be a part of your cult, I’d be gay all the way baby. That soldier is more of a hero then you or your cult will ever be. Every soldier that you protest against. Theres no need to bring anyone back from hell bc she lives in heaven with our God, not the God you say hates and hates, bc my God loves.

          Another thing to think about:
          IF YOU CANT STAND BEHIND OUR TROOPS, STAND INFRONT OF THEM.

        • Oh she’s alive alright. She is alive in every person who ever loved her, in every person her life ever touched and in every person she’s ever served with. She’s alive in the crowds that drown out your limp dicked message. And she was alive in the fist that struck the blow and in the hearts of the men who wrested control of the flag from the boney malcontents weak grasp. And thanks to the WBC she’s now alive in the many supporters who never knew she existed. For that, I thank you. I would have never known of this hero otherwise. Now, she’s alive in me.

          • Amen, Jessie Lee! She and all the others are alive in us, and as long as we continue to stand against WBC and other HATE CULTS, they will continue to live!

        • yeah Anthony and it is a shame that a POS like you is still alive to repeatedly disgrace yourself like you have in the past. You know those two arrests in Key West for assault. I am surprised that your neighbors there on PEACOCK PLAZA PMB, KEY WEST, FL allow you to remain there.

          I am also surprised that with your felony arrest record so publicly available as part of http://www.keysso.net on MCSO arrest search pages, the you would be stupid enough to use your name on your twitter feed and other places on the web.

          The Dyke is a Fallen Hero whose sacrifice protects your right to be a fucking insane douchebag. personally I would like to ship you to Iraq with one of you God Hates Posters stapled to your forehead.

          To anyone else who reads this, Capo has a history of filing charges against anyone who gets in his face because of his bigotry, hatred and sedition. he considers it a personal insult that anyone disagrees with his hatred.

          • Anthony Capo doesn’t strike me as a unique name. Unless your with @Anon or really, really independently good, how do you know its the same guy? People with PTSD might use that info? If it is him, I’m all for blasting him in public. If not, kinda hurts the cause

      • Nice thought, Jody. Would be great to have a countrywide “Anti WBC Fund”.

        The soldier who was taken into custody was released almost immediately and charges were dropped.

        Take that, WBC!

    • this is @grampscramps from twitter. first off i would like to thank the men home recoverd our flag from the feetof that desecrating commie, i have 25,000 tweets in protest from 35 = fake wbc accts i give them hell. #theHECKLERfromHELL

        • You and your kind are what’s wrong with the world today. You have the attitude that your opinion is the only correct one. Get over yourself – there are many ways to live your life and we should ALL accept what each person decides to do. In this country “all men are created equal”. If you and your ilk don’t like this then please feel free to leave this great country & take your ideals (or lack thereof) elsewhere. I will stand behind and beside evey one of our soldiers, alive or lost, as they fight the battle to maintain the freedoms that even misguided individuals such as you, Anthony Capo, believe in. That flag is a symbol of these freedoms and that soldier had the right to protect it from being dessicrated by whatever means he felt roghht, just as you people believe it is right to demonstrate at these sad moments and try to destroy that symbol.

          I try to be tolerant of all points of view but I have had it when people interrupt a family in their grief the way the Westboro people do. This is not God’s wrath on homosexuals as MY GOD would not judge a person this way, this is a human-created battle that these brave people have decided to fight so the rest of us that we can continue to enjoy these freedoms that even you are allowed.

          • he speaks in defense of the phelps clan and has no idea the the phelps’s would just as soon spit on him as well……cuz in the phelps world they themselves are god and nothing and noone is worthy of acceptance of god but them…….anthony cappo in his defense of fred and his clan would be walked upon……lol. oh the irony of it all……i live here in topeka ks where they are from and we as a populous do not like the message they are allowed to bestowe on everyone …..i wonder what god thinks about that……do ya think god likes that a simple dozen or two of his family members could actually make people turn their backs on god

        • Hey Anthony AKA Douche….Obviously you didn’t watch the same freaking video as everyone else has obviously and that your English is jacked up because in the Websters Dictionary “Recover” is defined as (and I quote) “To get or obtain again; to get renewed possession of; to win back; to regain.” So by definition, yes we did RECOVER the American flag you God-Forsaken polesmoker (and if you don’t know the definition of that, try looking it up and you will see a picture of you and WBC right there on the page.

          Wake the hell up Anthony and be careful how you tread because you never know who is watching your sorry ass…because it’s obviously not God or Jesus or Mary or whatever religion you think that you are practicing. Your next stop is a deportation by the INS back to the shit hole where you came from, because it’s obviously not the United States of America.

          I love how you have to stand behind your so called “church” and not stand on your own and not even fight your own battles. You are a scared chicken shit that doesn’t his own hand from your ass. You need to wake the hell up (and this goes for your shit hole of a church too) and get a grip on life otherwise you will be underground with the devil himself next to your family who’s already burning in hell.

          You are going to cross the wrong path one day Anthony and I want to be there to see you get your ass handed to you on a silver platter and I would love to be the first to send your ass to your freaking maker….I have done it with the Taliban and Al-Qa’ida and I would have no issues sending you there along with your best friends Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein!!! So tell me again why you’re still alive?

        • Fuck you asshole Anthony, it is not about bringing her back you son of a bitch, it is about showing respect for those that deserve it, and you sir and your zombies are not deserving. And your pussies dragging the flag through the streets of Raeford, they hauled ass after the first attack, not firm enough believers in your koolaid to hang around for round 2 and see who protects them, you miserable piece of..hmmm.. shit it too clean of a word for you. Why don’t you come on down to NC and protest instead of sending those poor children and old people, I am sure you more of a man then they were.

        • They were GIVEN the flag by the Raeford Police Department, you fool! I know where it’s hanging, too, and it’s NOT under the foot of some damn inbred WBC freak!

        • have any of your mindless and uneducated comments against soldiers brought back any of your loved ones from the grave? yeah… didn’t think so

          with all the hate from you turds…you need to remember one thing…man, woman, gay, lesbian, transsexual, what ever you might be….we all bleed red…you judge because you are weak minded but forget to realize that in the end…we are all the same…we are human…YOU and everyone that is a member of your cult need to educate yourself and step out of that fantasy world you live in and check back into reality

    • I don’t care if you were blessed enough to be born in this country and you think our flag is nothing…. ship the sorry low down people to a country where there is no freedom and let them think….. cause that flag stands for a lot… and just think that soldier died protecting it…. Thanks to all the service people who stand up for this country… I don’t think we should be in this war anymore but I do believe with all my heart that our soldiers are doing an AWESOME job protecting us!!!!!

    • Well no matter what the circumstance. NO AMERICAN should ever disrespect our nation or our flag…. what is wrong with people?

    • When I was growing up it was treason to do anything disgraceful to the American flag. I knew a high school friend of mine, an aquaintance, who burned it back the the 70′s. He got 30 years in federal prison.

    • they are welcome to sue me it would be their right just the same as it would be my right to tell them oh im sorry i have no money to pay you with sorry lol you see the only thing they could actually do to me is kill a few points on my credit report but beyond that nothing and they wouldnt get a dime or a penny from me. Disability and GI Bill benefits cannot be garnished or forced to be used to repay debts of any kind. and since thats all i get to support myself with there’s nothing they would ever get from me.

    • If someone wants to desecrate the United State flag then why dont they find another country to live in? These fallen soldiers die protecting the flag and everything it stands for, disgracing it and a soldiers funeral is just very disrespectful to him/her and his family…. If you wanna make a statement about the flag then choose a better time or place….. Hooray for the men who stood up for it and stopped the stupidity

  2. I’m really surprised someone hasn’t shot, one of these WBBC members yet….I’m actually sorta amazed, after the flag was recovered, was it properly disposed of as the flag is NEVER to touch the ground, or is it being used as a rallying point??

  3. Maybe We the People should start suing Westboro. Thousands of lawsuits a year.

    As far as the flag goes, it might be your right to burn it, but it is my right to protect it.

    Thousands of accounts of historical accounts are found in our history. Good men gave their lives to protect that flag. To burn that flag? Not so much…

  4. They want to stomp on Old Glory?!?! Let them be on the front lines and see how quick they want the help of the servicemen/women they scorn so FREELY here…

        • Gee Anthony… did you ever serve in any capacity in the military?? Or are you just trying to play devels advocate?? My service protects your right to say what you want. And my ability to defend something that you have no respect for is protected too. There is no glory in insulting a grieving family. Or do you find that to be acceptable behavior??

        • I’m seeing glory here. That person may have been elderly (or not, didn’t see it close enough), but he’s certainly no man. The price of the flag was pain in full by the soldier whose funeral they chose to protest. I’m going to toss a little pride in there as well. I do hope to see you when and if they decide to come back down here to 3rd ID country. I’m not on crutches anymore.

        • hey capo, whatever happened to “an eye for an eye”? you guys gonna beat the shit out of an old soldier now? I think the men and women who serve in our military would LOVE to leave afghanistan just to come get some westboro blood. ever thought about the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of soldiers u PISS OFF?

      • Only thing that sucks about that, is they can claim that their religious beliefs won’t allow it…it wouldn’t be the first time that excuse was used

      • Another WBC fag lover has made their way here…. @tonykeywest … I would have chose a better name unless you are one of the many that does Drag Racing without cars on Duvall St in Key West.

      • WRONG dipchit ~ the flag was saved! NOW if you have problems with OUR flag then let me be the FIRST to help you~ I got a blow up raft that I will gladly donate to your pathetic azz to take you across that big blue sea to another country that fits in with your LACK of Patriotism….

      • When you save a kitten from a home where their owner beats it all the time, that’s not stealing, that’s rescuing. He deserves a medal of honor.

        And by the way, no one’s interested in bringing anyone back to life. Slandering a dead person’s name isn’t helping either. You try to build controversy for the press attention, which is fine. But don’t be surprised when people attack you for it and the jury turns a blind eye.

      • Um your the only one who thinks it wasn’t saved. And it was saved. Saved from someone who disrespects it and the people who protect it. So if you don’t like it leave our country!!

      • Anthony Capo If you and your church really studied the bible like the Father wants us to you would know that Jesus was asked what he thought about religion. His reply was that He and His Father didn’t like it because it is a man made belief not God’s Law and if you and your church need help in finding it just look in the book Of Jasher it is mentioned in the new testament but not one of the books they let in the King James bible because a King wanted to change what was wrote by God so he could live the way he wanted just like you and all the other Christian beliefs out there. they take a small part of the WORD of God so it is easier to live by and say you will make it to Heaven there are 22 books mentioned in the bible but are not in it but you can look them up and do some studying instead of wasting your time protesting stuff that shouldn’t matter to you or the other faiths in this country that was founded on God and freedom of religion. You might be to stupid to understand this but so what if one chose’s to live not like GOD wanted there chose which God gave us does not effect your way into heaven but your protesting and spreading hate does make you accountable in the end and you will be judged and sent to hell for your actions. Walk your faith no one says you can’t but don’t make others walk in your beliefs. Just do what God ask of you and stay out of others lives and the choices they make and you might make it to see your God

        • oh and by the way go over to to where the Taliban are and preach your message they will behead you just as quick as you tell them you are a christian you are really stupid they think we need to die because we believe in God and the Bible not the koran

  5. I wish folks would realize that the Westboro “Baptist Church” people are really “liberals” using the Saul Alinsky tactic of posing as the enemy (the church) to discredit them, while also attacking another enemy (the military). These people hate Christians and pose as a “church’ in order to bring them to disrepute. When was the last time you saw a real church group stomp on the American flag. Only liberals do stuff like they.

    • Sorry to burst you bubble but you have your generalization wrong there Sonia. I would be considered a liberal and there is no way in hell I would ever disrespect the flag in any way. I think before you go around making generalizations you get your facts straight.

    • “Only liberals would do stuff like they.” Please, Sonia, please. Get to know some people outside your comfort zone. Most of the liberals I know love this country and respect the flag. The Westboro people aren’t a regular church, they are a sick cult. Please do a little research before saying/writing things like this.

    • I don’t see how they can say they are a church, people of God & act like they do. To disrespect the flag of our country that way. I wonder how they would feel if the military was to boycott some of their family funerals like they are doing ours. Or even other Churchs they wouldn’t like it. But I wouldn’t call them a church of God, they must be an accult church or something.

      • I agree with you JW. I think this goes deeper than being a baptist Church. Much like in Chicago, Jeremiah wright’s church also has a Baptist name/affiliation, yet it’s roots are racist and muslim. I believe this WB church is also a ‘cover up” for a muslim organization. the muslim doctrine is for subversiveness and deception, lying, to draw out the true Christians and Jews for slaughter. When comparing their actions to that of any terrorist muslims, the parallels are easily seen. They may even have fooled some of their own congregation… but they appear as muslims to me…

    • actually they,westborro, are a church fred is a pastor but that is where it all ends as to them being worth anything. I live in Topeka where they are we have to put up with this everyday of our lives. they protest everyday here i have to tell my kids why they do it and why they are allowed to do it everyday. i served in the U.S. Navy so i understand they have the right to do it just like idiots like tony have the right to say things like he has. if we could all just ignore them they would go away and find something else to do. and people have tried to sue them before but they have studied the law so much that they know all the loopholes and slick ways to get around everything. and what is really bad is the city police used to have someone stand bodyguard duty near them because people have tried to run them over and do other things to them. the biggest part of what they do that makes me really really pissed is the fact that they have minor kids out there holding their signs. i could care less what the adults do but when they have their kids out there then i think something should be done but the state can’t do anything about it because of the way laws are written.

      • Yes…you can do something about it. You can protest back. Why not organize your townsfolk to protest against their church? You have as much right to protest as they do….

    • sorry but i too am a liberal and by the way an OEF Vet as well yes you can be both but most importantly im american and what WBC does is not liberal its plain out disrespect and in my opinion should be seen as treason when the country is at war.

    • sONIA, you are either a moron, a shill or mentally defective. Liberal? hardly these people are extreme right wing religious republicans.

  6. About time someone put a pop knot on their heads. sONIA, the reason the police are quick to protect them is because they can’t protect themselves.

  7. i took a oath to protect this country of all enemys forign and domestic. these people are a domestic enemy agnist my country
    hoorah

    • so, Dillon, foreign and domestic< against every "CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER"?

      SPELL FIRST AND THEN BELIEVE YOU ARE A PATRIOT, OTHERWISE YOU CANT READ EITHER THE CONSTITUTION OR THE BIBLE.
      and fuck you if your teachers sucked

      • Perhaps Mr Kettle (Donald) should look at his own writing. Sentences should start with capital letters and ‘<' doesn't belong in that sentence. The second..um, sentence, is so poorly constructed it would get you a D in grade school. So how bad were your teachers? So many morons, so little time and ammo is so damned expensive….

  8. I don’t think WBC is liberal or conservative…No liberal would claim a group that much against gay and lesbianism; no conservative would claim a group that, i dunno, crazy?? The only thing WBC did today was probably make the crowd grow from something that might have been 300-500 folks to something rumored to be over 5,000 to pay their respects to an American Soldier who died fighting for the safety and freedoms the WBC uses to protest her death.

  9. They were practicing first amendment and those of you who cant deal with it are my enemies. I swore to uphold the Constitution and you ninnies who hate free thought are the enemies of USA. You beasts are animals and I hope this nut job gets 5 years in prison

    • You’re right – to a point.
      It is their right to protest at a military funeral and to make asses of themselves, and it is their right to stomp on a flag, as long as they didn’t take it from someone else unlawfully.
      But in this country, actions (should!) have consequences. It was the right of the soldier to make his displeasure known in the strongest terms. Soldiers have paid for this right, more so than most civilians.
      Pretty much anyone who is in the military will agree that treating a flag in that manner is equivalent to punching us in the nose. As long as no permanent damage is done, a beat-down is perfectly appropriate.
      You stick your finger in a hornets’ nest, you have nobody but yourself to blame when you get stung.

      • Liberal Democrat Protestor here to drop off and old saying about the 1st Amendment as I’m passing through. “My right to swing my fist ends where your face begins”

        Is what happened right? 2 counts of No. It’s legal to step on the flag. It feels wrong, but there are lots of things the law will & won’t allow that feel wrong. Sadly, I’ve had a lot of experience with these…individuals, and what they say, do & stand for is just plain wrong and (dare I say) Un-American. They were at Matthew Shepherd’s funeral, President Clinton’s Mother’s funeral, countless military heroes, all the while saying God was happy for the deaths with slogans I won’t repeat here out of respect. Shameful. Regardless of flag stuff and whatever else, I’ve been waiting years to see someone pop one of these dudes, so thank you for that. Satisfying to say the least.

        Thanks also for what y’all do here. Please keep in mind that at least when speaking for the Libs & Dems I know, we find the stealing of valor as disgusting as you do, and you have our full support.

    • the smartest thing to ever come out of your mouth was your boyfriends cock. why dont you go ginsu swinging on your wrists because you are using up too much oxygen that can be used by more important things…..like gnats or slugs.

    • Stevie, you had to be a conscientious objector, REMF, or some other pogue MOS. Ass bags like you should have never been allowed to serve unless behind bars at GITMO, if you even served. Your Mother should have swallowed you.

    • Lookie here….one of them WBC Trolls decided to come onto a Valor website and open his mouth. You and your group are what is wrong with this country not us. We are law abiding citizens that defend the constitution, not bend it to fit our will. We organize to defend the people that should be able to mourn their fallen loved ones in peace without hate mongers like you disturbing them.

      Trust me when I say this, I am going to find out when one of you die and I am going to start a rally to ensure every soldier and family member I can find protests it so loud you will have to scream to hear the Eulogy. Then you will know how it feels.

      I am a Baptist, and unlike you I know what the bible says and it not once says God hates Fags or Soldiers. You have been drinking way too much of the Phelps fool-aid. Please go back and let the rest of the hate speech mafia know you don’t scare us and you never will. Your idle threats and false signs only make us want to ridicule you more.

      And If I am a BEAST I am the Wolf and you and the rest of the Sheep should flee. Now begone before I taunt you a second time.

      Make the mistake I dare you.

      • Please notify me of any protest against the WBC itself or one of it’s parishoner’s funerals sapperx, due to health, I cannot promise, but I would do my best to meet up with you, and support a protest against the WBC and any related funeral… I’m still of the belief that they are somehow a muslim organization, and think the Southeastern Baptist Council should investigate them, for fraudulently using the Baptist name on their “church”(mosque)

    • Unfortunately, that’s not the way our law system works. The jury will realize his actions were those of a rational, sane citizen with a moment of bad judgement. This guy is going to show up in his blues and testify that he suddenly lost control of rational thought and attacked him. The lawyer is going to splutter and rage about protected speech, but long story short the soldier is going to get 2 weeks of community service and a heartfelt “Don’t do it again.”
      And that’s the way it should be.

      • The article said he was released without charges, however, I believe that he was exersizing, and in total control, over his rational thought ! One day I would like to shake his hand !

    • There is a big difference between practicing your 1st amendment and using hate speech to incite violence. Any chance you be allowed to go to a Muslim funeral with signs displaying “Muslims are fags”? Free speech is not unlimited.

  10. The flag meant something when I served. Reagan was President. Homosexuals were kicked out. You have a right to burn a flag or koran with my blessing. You can burn a KJV and I won’t resort to violence though I would feel like it. Homosexuals and Muslims hate free speech and now it appears a majority of those serving today hate our constitution though they swore an oath. Liars burn in the lake of fire brutes Rev 21:8

    • You are the worst type of WBC Troll. If you served in the Military like you claimed you were more then likely discharged under other then honorable. You are a Racist Homophobe. Whats a matter were you in the Navy and the Marines made fun of you? And if you were (I doubt it) in the service then you should know how a soldier will react when you mess with the flag of our nation. Please feel free to drive off a fucking cliff. Have a nice day.

      • You know what Steve your really giving Christians a bad name. And how dare you disgrace Ronald Reagan like that. I’m a pastor’s daughter and I’m a military member and I could care less if they’re homosexual or not. As long as they’re putting on the uniform everyday, doing what they’re supposed to be doing and protecting my back I could care less. Because it’s not my place or your place to judge those people. That is God’s place and right.

  11. @STEVE.mc-I’m an idiot! Hahahaha no one would be scared to be your enemy! And you never served our country! Only tools like you hide behind the protection given to you by our military. And no-Steve shouldn’t have been swallowed he should’ve been shot into her ass.

    • He was an un-natural birth…he was shot out of her ass! BTW Steve, go take a shit for yourself, its coming out your mouth!

  12. @Jackson you sure seem to enjoy lying. I won’t give my resume to you. Like you would admit you are a low down demonic liar. My service in Beirut enables me to join VFW. I am a Bible waver today, not a flag waver. God hates your idols.

  13. As far as that Westboro “parishioner” who who got decked for stomping on the flag….It must absolutely suck to be you. If I was there and seen the soldier decking this twit; I didn’t see a damn thing!

  14. “I do solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth… So Help Me God”

    Prosecution: “What exactly did you see”?

    Kona Marc: “I observed members of the Westboro Baptist Church willfully and negligently subject minor children to displays of obscenity, hatred and commit acts of moral turpitude. I witnessed numerous “parishioners” display acts of desecration to the Flag of the United States of America in a willful attempt to incite a riot, in doing so they subjected minor children to situation which any reasonable and prudent person would assume a dangerous environment existed – therefor endangering the lives of minors.

    Prosecution: “Did you witness anything else”?

    Kona Marc: “Yes, while the officers backs were turned to organized group of protestors from Westboro, I observed them advancing to the barricade with signs attached to wooden poles and other objects that could easily be used as a weapon against the officer(s) with their backs turned… I saw one man attempt to neutralize the threat and in doing so was mistaken as the aggressor by police, he offered no resistance to the police. As a former Peace Officer and trained observer it appeared obvious to me the subject taken into custody was acting out of concern for the Officers Safety.

    Prosecution: “Thank you for your testimony, and for the record, where where you when you observed these events”?

    Kona Marc: “I was manning my post at the Finish Line of the 2012 Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona Hawaii.

  15. I would like to Welcome the WBC to Fayetteville and the surrounding Area…. Home of the 82nd Airborne, Special Forces, JSOC as well as SFOD(CAG), 20th Engr Bde, 18th ABN Corps and Psyops. You are welcome to do as you please as long as you stay away from us. Because first chance we get we are going to make up for all of our lost friends that you say God hates. In this town no one sees anything. We are a family and we will defend our own. Soldier Funerals are held in the highest regard to us. If you desecrate our flag we will decimate you. Now please get on I-Whatever and go back to Kansas, you will be safer there.

  16. i have know @bullhornman for a long time. we were lovers u no comrads! i lived in his shed down in cape coral fl. he has a soup can phallus. and his mom fed me.

  17. The koran and the Flag are 2 different things. Apples and oranges my friend. The koran is a religious book as is the bible (which muslims have burnt many of). When the koran was burnt it wasn’t because of what it is but because of the notes that had been written in the margins. Muslims were using the koran to smuggle and hide their plans. Look it up.

  18. IMHO religion has a lot to answer for. Puts a lot of inappropriate notions in the minds of our less able bretheren.
    Causes more conflict than out of order, self-righteous politicians!

  19. Anthony Capo, Read This
    the phrase ‘flag burning’ refers only to burning a flag as an act of protest. However the United States Flag Code states that “the flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning

    Yes it maybe what you consider theft and robbery but this Armed Services member did the Right thing. He stood up for HIS FREEDOM OF SPEECH. It was his right to stop them.

    As for you calling the SGT, a anus licking dyke i have two things to say to you. First, and you know her sexual orientation how? and secondly either you’re sexually repressed or you need to come out of the Closet.

    You sound like you are an ardent supporter of the WBC. You are judge before god for your deed’s on Earth. The sgt is with god for the good work protecting WBC’s Freedom and OURS. You my friend for desecrating her memory will find yourself at your judging facing every fallen solider that they have picketed. I have two friends who WBC picketed their funerals. One i went to High School with and another was a friend of a neighbor. They are watching from Heaven and will no doubt be ready for everyone who picketed and/or supported the Hate speech from WBC.

  20. The brotherhood of military service is one not to mess with , only a military person will understand this , that thing from wbc or what ever it is, is nothing but scum, always will be, . no court or judge in the land should prosecute that soldier for protecting the flag , I for one defend that mans actions and i’m from across the pond . WHO in their right mind goes to a military funeral and disrespect’s it , unbelievable the police wouldn’t have a chance to contain the anger nor stem the blood that would be let over here , everyone has the right to protest just not at a funeral of a person that has given their life for you to have that right to protest. RIP fellow soldier ,

  21. The fact that these men and women moc the deaths of our fallen milatary, blows my mind, the very men and women who faught to protect there rights to protest. I would like to see the police stand down, walk away, and see how long these cowards srand and protest with no protection. Let them feel the ire of an angry crown trying to show their respect to these fallen heros who gave thier lives for this country.

  23. the perfect solution to all our troubles:

    Step 1) round up every member of the WBC.

    Step 2) Load them in a plane and drop them in East Africa/Afghanistan/Asia Minor (unarmed of course since they don’t believe in violence)

    Step 3) Bring out troops home and give them all former WBC property.

    As a Baptist minister myself, I am embarrassed and ashamed by the actions of these people. They have twisted GOD’s word into a meaningless babble that is used only to dishonor our military. GOD loves ALL HIS children and is the originator of the “No Child Left Behind” rule. Some may stray from HIS path, but ALL are welcome home when their journey is complete.

    I am a Minister, Veteran, American, and a child of GOD. I happily welcome ALL our Veterans home with open arms.

    I ask that people not judge all Baptists by the actions of the WBC.

    • Stop puffing up yourself. You follow Joel Osteen’s God. God hates Esau, workers of iniquity and much more. You worship the creature much like the homosexuals did in Romans 1 Read Matthew 7:13-22 and stop lying

  24. I visited the web site of the WBC yesterday to see exactly how they view me and everyone else they say God hates. I am and American Soldier, fighting for their right to say and do the things they are saying and doing to us. First of all MY GOD HATES NOBODY! Seconded GOD is the ONLY one who can judge me, and third……these “PEOPLE” need to find a good psychiatrist and pay him/her good money to fix their sever mental problems!

    • Do you honestly think God hates people? I wont taunt you, I don’t know you and I wont play that game. My father served…. I did not. I believe protecting one’s right to free speech is essential to the success of the country. However, If your (not necessarily you, but rather more specifically WBC) purpose is to insight a violent response by the opposition in order to make a few dollars is wrong. It clearly becomes part of business plan and not the actions of a compassionate people.
      I take you at your word, Thank you for your service. Please remember, that Christians are often vilified due to the actions of worst among them.

      The Son of a Soldier.

  25. Hat off to the AMERICAN PATRIOT who bravely stood up the WBC. Please keep us informed if that young hero/patriot needs funds for defense. I watched the video and I can clearly see the WBC “hater of everything America really stands for” CLEARLY threw the first punch. Bet his sorry ass will never forget how an American soldier feels. Talk about the “right hand of Christian fellowship”. That young hero was morally obligated to step up and defend the flag.

    • I agree Tyler. That mofo will be looking around next time. I’ve wondered why these A holes are so angry at the military. Just realized what WBC stands for. Widle Bitty Cock. WAAAH HA HA HA! I crack myself up. And try coming to Coosa County Alabama and protest a patriot’s funeral. You people at WBC need to admit it. You have supressed homosexual feelings and this is your response? You need to embrace who you are. Come on. Come out of the closet boy’s. YOUR president supports you. Commie! And Anthony Capo you know you are a boy lover. We all can tell it. Anyone can see you for what you really are…a turd tube licking cross dressing boy loving retard. Only reason you do this is cause you like to see boys in uniform. Oh BTW, no the flag wasn’t stolen, it was rescued as it should have been. Case closed.

  26. Burn OUR flag, I’ll burn YOUR ASS! If their so unhappy with America, GET OUT!! WE’RE FULL! I’d be happy to assist funds for defense against WBC.

  27. I served 24 years of Active Duty service….. and I presented the Flag to families of the fallen. It was the worst job I ever had to do. When you knock on a door to inform someone that their loved one has been killed in service… it will change you.
    I was 307th Engineer and 618th Engineer. I served in multiple conflicts. I have held dying soldiers. I had a job to do. The soldier who did his job to protect my Flag… is a hero.

    If you choose to insult the family of a fallen Soldier… please do not feel that your protections under the Constitution will protect you from a Soldier doing his job… following his Oath of Enlistment. “I will support and defend the Constitution of the Untied States against all emenies; foreign and domestic..” We follow that Flag into places that most fear.

  28. If you believe in what those douchenozzles from WBC are doing then let me know, I will give you my address and we can have a discussion about it. I would have done the same thing that the soldier did. ” In the Breach”

  29. Thank you for your service! We respect the job you have done and continue to uphold the oath you took upon enlistment. It isn’t about religion to me. It is simply about honoring those who have served and gave all. Again, thank you!

    • Cathy you are exactly right!! It isn’t about religion. It is about defending the sanctity and honor of a family that has already suffered a great loss. I fight for the defenseless all around the world…. often for reasons we don’t always understand nor fully support. But as a Soldier, I will not allow anyone to disgrace another soldier, their family or my Flag.

      It was my honor to serve….. and yes, I would do it all over again. But you owe me no debt or thanks. It was my personal convictions that allowed me to serve this Great Nation.

  30. I saw it here too all the way over in England where I happen to be station. I’m proud to be serving the USA and it’s fucktards like the people from Westboro who really piss me off.

  31. Also at Anthoy Capo. I would really love to see you on the front lines having enemy rounds going all around you. Watching your best friend die right beside you. I’m proud of the guy who protected the flag from being disrespected. If you have a problem with what happend I would be more than happy to help you pack and leaved America. It’s stupid people like you who make America look stupid. So until you actually know what us as service members go through you can shut your God-damn mouth because you don’t know what your talking about.

    • Anthoy Capo along the Far-Religous Right(aka the Taliban) and The Far-Left Anti-War Activists are nothing but domestic Anti-Americans and Qusilings who are allies of the Westboro Baptist Church.

      If you are a Reliogus nuts (i.e. the Muslim Brotherhood, Taliban and the Christian Taliban)

      If you an Anti-War Activist and Anti-Anything American Left

      If you are a Neo-Confederate and A Vermont Second Republican

      Who supports the Westboro Baptist Church, you are nothing but stinky Qusilings who need to be kicked out of American and deported to Russia(hey Vladimr Putin iand Russian TV are pro-Westboro)

  32. My Father is a member of the VFW and has attended flag burning ceremonies, and, as a former soldier myself, I am very much aware of the laws regarding desecrating the flag. It is still, and hopefully always will be, illegal to damage an American flag. For the flag burning ceremonies my Father has attended, they must have special written permission from the military and are only allowed to use special flags that were made for this purpose. They must be burned in a container, burned completely, and then the ashes must be buried. I learned from tagging along on military funerals that should the American flag EVER touch the ground AT ALL, the soldier or soldiers must immediately dig a hole, and burn the flag in it, then bury it. Watched that happen to a SGT who had to burn the flag in front of the widow. At least she understood. I also know from dating an MP/Volunteer fireman that if you should ever need to dispose of a flag, you’re SUPPOSED to take it the fire station so they can properly dispose of it.

    • in pa a flag is only allowed to be burned only on holy ground i.e a churchand only after something is done to the flag taken apart i believe im not sure have to look it up is that the same where your at?

    The real point here is that another Military person has been killed for the greed of American corporations. My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Sgt.Donna Johnson. I support our Troops, BRING THEM HOME NOW, ALIVE. There is no greater pain than having to bury your beloved child. I wish people would stop posting the dispicable acts carried out by the Westboro church. All you are doing is giving them the attention they crave.

    • BTW, my son Sean died at the age of 34 so I do understand the unbearable, unending pain the parents suffer. It has been 8 years now and I still grieve and feel the pain as much as I ever have. I will endure this pain until I draw my last breath. I just want all of this hate, war and killing to end. I would not wish my life on anyone. Unless you have lost a child you have no idea the pain the parents of Sgt. Donna Johnson will feel for the rest of their lives.

  34. Anthony,
    I say this to you. I am not a believer in heaven or hell. I do however believe in rights. under the 1st ammendment to our constitution you do have the rights you claim. However under the 2nd ammendment I too have rights. I pray the day never comes when my right goes against yours. But if that day should come, you sir will know firsthand if heaven or hell exists. If I had to make a prediction, I would say it’s the latter for you. Believe in whatever god you choose, but remember the bed you make is the one you will have to lie in. Have a nice day.

  35. To you whom I can’t find words low enough to describe that show up at Vet’s funerals, while you claim to be vets and members of the VFW or American Legion, please come to American Legion Post 69 in Payson, Arizona and ask for Ted. I’ll be happy to treat you to some old fashioned as kicking…please hurry as I’m gettin’ old but not that old.

  36. according to the dictionary the definition of a terrorist is the following

    ter·ror·ist
       [ter-er-ist] Show IPA

    noun
    1.
    a person, usually a member of a group, who uses or advocates terrorism.

    2.
    a person who terrorizes or frightens others.

    3.
    (formerly) a member of a political group in Russia aiming at the demoralization of the government by terror.

    4.
    an agent or partisan of the revolutionary tribunal during the Reign of Terror in France.

    See number 2 so by that definition the WBC is a group of terrorist’s and they are just thugs and douche bags.

  37. I believe the protester spit on him too. I wish they could protest WITHOUT out taxpayer money giving them protection from the POLICE. Then, we’ll see what happens when they start this shit. I’m a disabled VET and I be;\lieve I can still put a hurt on some of these Westboro piss ants.

  38. WIll Scott Bradley, You can not burn the flag in public as there are many city ordinance that state some sort of burn ban for the sake of safety. Why don’t you know this?

  39. “It is the soldier, not the reporter, Who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, Who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the organizer, Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier, Who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag, And whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protestor to burn the flag. ”

  41. I remember when they came to Portland and they were getting pissed off because their threats of suing the counter protesters and getting up into our faces wasn’t working! This is a typical tactic of a so called ‘church’ then they need to be labled the same as the KKK, bloods, crips and ‘juggalos’!! If you need a charchter witness in court I’d be happy to be there! Just need a lot of warning so I can save the money to come! I hope Fred Phelps is in Hell got ass raped by the Devil with a cactus everyday!

    • you want to know whats REALLY REALLY bad since you mentioned the KKK (no not a member) the KKK or members of it possibly actually said something to the effect of “wow those guys are nuts they go way too far” now if you have the KKK thinking your going too far wow your really really really far out there dont ya think?

  42. WOW I never thought I would see the day when SATAN aka WBC would post here.

    All I have to say is that may GOD have mercy on your soul! I will pray for you.
    Your time will come.

  43. Got to love the first amendment but as Trace Atkins say the Constitution and the Bill of Rights protect you from the government. Not a good old fashion ass whoopin.

  44. I would like to say Thank you to all of the soldiers who gave their all for this counrty. WBC makes me physically sick! God have Mercy on all of your souls because you are surely going to hell for what you are doing!

  45. Sad to say but WBC does sue as in md there is a guy still paying them off, after they protested at his son’s funeral. Tragic. the soldiers fight for thier right to treat the flag as they wish, but I would gladly run the line also to get to the flag.

  46. I am a firm beliver in the first amendment. If they want to protest the war then they need to do what they did in the sixties go to washington. Or they can coem to ohio and they can visit the ohio national gaurd. And we all know what they do to protesters.

  47. At Anthony Capo: My heart hurts for you. I, as a Veteran and as a Christian, am literally crying for you. I cannot imagine the traumas you have gone through in your life that you can be consumed by such hatred. At some point in your life, I’d like to think that you had some morsel of moral decency that your soul wasn’t always filled with this amount of cancerous loathing for Americas’ military members past, present, and future. MY children and I will pray for you and your fellow members of the WBC. I can only assume that when your eyes and hearts are removed from the darkness you are filling your lives with, you will hope that there are more people like myself that understand God is forgiving and so we should be too. May God have Mercy on your soul.

  48. What saddens me is that these parasites (wbc) have figured out what hits home the hardest for our Patriots and our soldiers (all branches of service members) and use it to bring us to the brink of our tolerance. I would love to have their cult meet my coven in an open field. I respect everyone’s right to religious belief, and but these parasites operate under a false blanket of religion. A true Christian, Catholic, Lutheran, protestant, Baptist, wiccan would offer support and loving arms to the grieving families. They would not cause more emotional damage.

  49. Is there somehow honor in protesting what should be a solemn day as a funeral? Those who know nothing of honor can speak nothing of it. There was may very well have been strong arm battery. There may have been assault and battery…you can call it theft. Amazing how you know the terms and not how to spell them. Try to be well spoken and quote court rulings when you can’t read the documents with your limited abilities with the language you’re protesting in. You’re a fool, and you’ll find that when you get to hell and look left and right, you’ll find none of the victims of your protests there beside you. Believe what you will. The fact is that elderly man is a pig. Come on down to North Carolina again bud. Bring everyone you got. I’ve got a few thousand friends of mine that know just how to greet you. You came in to our house incorrect fuckwad…consider that punch a warning shot.

I would gladly send of u idiots instead of my husband next time he deploys. I hope nothing more than the next time u protest one of our fallen soldiers funerals someone shoves old glory right up your stupid ass!!!!

    • Only one problem with sending the WBC to the front lines…none of them would have the courage or constitution to do the job when the enemy is at their door. These low-life, incestual, inbreeding asshats love to hide behind the constitution, but not a one of them would actually do what was needed to PROTECT the constitution. So, unfortunately, our brothers, sisters, dads, moms, uncles, aunts and cousins, will forever be on the front lines. I support EVERY serviceperson (past, present and future), that have the integrity to don their uniforms every morning. Those that are sometimes sent to places that most of us have never heard of, or asked to do things that most men and women would balk at, or run from. GOD BLESS AMERICA, and GOD PROTECT THOSE THAT PROTECT ME.

  52. God loves his soldiers cause he sure as hell made a lot of us.
    and as my grandfather who has a commonsense approach to life something you people lack he always said yes you have rights and yes u are free to express those rights but does that mean i can say its within my rights to walk up and punch you in the nose…..no its because my rights end where your nose started.

    hooah im army and proud

  53. FOLKS please please see what this Anthony Capo is trying to do. He is baiting you over and over, hoping for a direct physical threat that can be portrayed as “terroristic” in nature, or for libelous statements, or just a plain direct threat of harm. WHY? Because they then can use current internet laws to shut down this site. Ignore the scum and eventually they will go away. They are like roaches of the internet as well as humanity, do not lower yourself to their level no matter how tempting. That is what he is doing to you all. Trying to tempt you into a stupid act so they can report the site, who ever made the threat to the authorities, to the ISP hosting this site, and to DHS (As if associating with this site doesn’t already get us too much notice already.) — Post smart please.

  54. Brodder is right…. This “person” is using this forum to attempt to insight someone into an internet altercation so as to have reasn to get this site banned from the web. Just ignore “him” and “he” will go away. The WBC is well know for their tactics of insighting then sueing. If the administrator of this site has the ability to block this “person” from any further comments I would suggest doing so to end any further attempts to insight attacks from others.

  55. Sadly, Brian, the days when that was true are over. When a thief can sue someone whose house he broke into because he sprained his ankle jumping out of the skylight, and win, I lose faith in the justice system. I have two tours in Iraq under my belt, and I’d gladly go into handcuffs for knocking out some @$$bag for protesting at a deceased brother or sister’s funeral, but I wouldn’t put faith in a jury showing mercy on me afterwards.

  56. All I see here is that religions in general is to blame. Sure, most Christians wouldn’t do the things that WBC does, even most Muslims in our country wouldn’t do this, but ALL of these religions breed bias and hatred to a degree.

    Yes the constitution and founding fathers were all about freedom of religion and expression, but then again they didnt have the knowledge and information that we have available to us today.

    So, in my opinion, Christians, Baptists, Muslims, and WBC are all of the same ilk, just some are a bit more extreme than others. My idea of a perfect America would be, yes, you can practice and preach your religion IN PRIVATE with no re-procussions, that is your right. But the second your religion goes PUBLIC, for example, going door to door “witnessing”, praying (i.e. talking to yourself out loud), praying at EVERY formal military event, attempting to teach creationism in schools, etc… then you are infringing on my right to not be forced to be exposed to your mythical beliefs every time I turn around.

    I stand by my assessment that RELIGIONS are the problem…not WBC…

    SSG Will S
    Current Active Duty Army, Europe

    • Um….excuse me sir but your just as bad as WBC if you think that. Oh and by the way our country was founded on RELIGIOUS principle. And how dare you link me in with WBC. Even for just saying that it sounds like your standing up for them…Sir, which means your turning your back on your fellow service member who died for your sorry ass.

      • DAnielle first off you owe SSG Will S who is Current Active Duty Army, Europe an apology for that last line in your post. Taht is disgraceful to speak to him that way for voicing his opinion. If you cannot speak respectfully than please be quiet.

        Second if you are going to spout about the founding fathers, you probably should read a bit more from them about their ideals and goals.

        Adams, Jefferson, Monroe, Madison and a few more wrote extensively about their reasoning behind trying to form a New Nation. They and others went through many iterations of the current Constitution before they came to agreement. Please understand, and learn, that there were several Continental Congresses before they even came close.

        The main sticking point in most of the prior attempts were the demands from different groups that THEIR religion should rule or NO religion should rule. The Constitution is a Compromise between those two extremes.

        There were everything from Puritans to Deists involved in the drafting, consideration and signing of the Constitution. Some of the founders wanted religion outlawed, others wanted the Church of England to have a role in our government, and on and on in every combination available at that time.

        The reason we have the Establishment of Religion Clause in the Constitution is to protect an individuals right to be free from a Government Sanctioned religion, which carries a corollary (granted one that churches don’t like) Freedom from all Religion in our Government. SCOTUS has repeatedly upheld both.

        They mean the same thing, you cannot impose your religious views on me and I cannot impose my religious views on you and the government can NEVER impose any religious view (for or against) on the public.

        Constitutionally speaking a group say the Catholics or Mormons cannot take over the government and demand that our laws are based on their beliefs. Despite the attempts by many politicians and churches to get around that, faith based legislating is not constitutional.

        SSG Will S was not linking you specifically to WBC and if you feel insulted that is more about your bias and defensiveness about your religion than about what he said.

        He is entitled to his view, and as an Active Duty Service Member he is Defending your right to speak and prove you can be an ass in public or private.

        his statement that “…So, in my opinion, Christians, Baptists, Muslims, and WBC are all of the same ilk, just some are a bit more extreme than others. ” is absolutely correct in the sense that they all demand that their version of GOD is the only god and if you don’t agree you will be destroyed by their god.

        They all believe that their religion should be the one that laws are modeled after with their group as the arbiter. YOU personally may not feel that way, but he is addressing the GROUPs and how their leaders behave and how some of their adherents will, like WBC, got to extremes to get their view of GOD as the controlling view in our Country.

        I realize you won’t like a thing I say, but that doesn’t bother me at all. YOU need to learn your history and stop the temper tantrums, it is disgraceful.

      • oh how dare you even suggest a thing like that!! SSG Will S has a RIGHT to his opinion and as an active duty soldier currently serving in my opinion has more right than any to weigh in on especially this situation. because if something should happen to him it could be his funeral they show up to next therefore he should be given consideration and respect for voicing his opinion.

  58. As I read through these comments I see a couple of individuals trying, successfully, to incite reactions. I also see a lot of blame being focused on groups and religion. Many comments about what Christians do and what Muslims would do. I think that is wrong. There are many Muslim Americans that would have done the same thing and tried to rescue the flag. We all should learn to associate the individuals with thier own actions and not condemn an entire group because of the actions of a few. I am not Muslim, nor am I Christian, what my religious beliefs are, are my own business. What I am is a proud American, a Veteran, and a former Police Officer. I have witnessed the actions of these people first hand. It pains me right down to my very being. The hardest thing I have ever had to prepare myself for was to provide security at a fallen soldier’s funeral, thankfully WBC didn’t show up. I would have done my job and protected them and anyone else, but a piece of me would have died. To those that are still fighting, thank you. To those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice, thank you and you will be forever remembered. Finally to those of you who go out of your way to infuriate, incite, and insult those who are greiving the loss of a hero, just beause the law allows and you can make money from it, you are welcome.

    • Mike, just an fyi. I saw that you had stated on a previous thread that Fred Phelps was a rightwinger. He’s actually a registered Democrat and has ran for Governor of Kansas multiple times as a Dem. He’s also supported Al Gore in previous elections. Just thought you might be interested in knowing that.

      • John,,, anyone can register as anything… he advocates, when not in his delirium about god hating soldiers, gays and the US, for right wing religious positions.

        as for running for gov under cover of a party label….look at Romney…

        • True.. But bottom line is, he registeredd as a Dem and supported Gore, not a Republican rightwinger. Now are his stances extreme rightwing. Yes. Either way, he’s a douche.

          We’ll just have to agree to disagree about Mitt.

          • yep he’s a douche… and his actions speak more than any label.

            as for mitt, you can have your opinion, but out of curiosity, in your way of thinking how do you rectify Mitts statement when running for governor that he was more liberal than Kennedy on Abortion to his stance now that he has always been against it?

            and don’t forget the additional recorded video interview where he says he has been Pro-Choice ever since his mother ran for office.

          • Mike, there wasn’t an option to reply to your last comment regarding Mitt and abortion. I haven’t seen the videos so I can’t really give an educated opinion on that. But regardless, maybe he’s changed. Maybe he was pandering to his very liberal constituency in MA. Maybe he’s changed his views. All I care about now is him defeating Obama. And I think he’s well on his way to doing it.

          • yeah we are too far in to the thread for a direct reply.

            check out you tube if you want to see some of the issues he keeps changing his public statements about. It is very entertaining.

            As for him beating Obama, I don’t think so, but do recognize there is always a possibility.

            Sad part is all those “corporate execs” who keep complaining about him are the ones who have benefited the most from the things he has done.

            the tea partiers have kept a strangle hold on the house for the last two years, refusing to pass legislation that helps middle America in an attempt to push their ideology about gutting social services without care about the 50 Million plus people who are out of work because of the Deregulation of Wall Street, Mortgage Banking and Regular banks.

            They and his opponents keep trying to make it a bad thing that his bail out of the Auto Industry saved 1 million directly related jobs.

            I am a centrist, I believe in fiscal responsibility but I am socially liberal. If the extremists get past the idea that Corporations should be given free reign and actually began to work for the betterment of the American people, our recovery would be a lot farther along.

The best way to handle them is to keep them from disrupting funerals by any means necessary. Sgt. Johnson gave the last full measure of devotion to her country. Her family and friends don’t deserve being treated this way.

    Produced by StandWithUs

    The Muslim Brotherhood logo fits its motto:

    “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way.
    Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. Allahu akbar!” 1

    The Brotherhood’s goal is to turn the world into an Islamist empire. The Muslim
    Brotherhood, founded in Egypt in 1928, is a revolutionary fundamentalist movement to restore
    the caliphate and strict shariah (Islamist) law in Muslim lands and, ultimately, the world. Today,
    it has chapters in 80 countries.
    “It is in the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations
    and to extend its power to the entire planet.” —Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna2
    The Brotherhood wants America to fall. It tells followers to be “patient” because
    America “is heading towards its demise.” The U.S. is an infidel that “does not champion
    moral and human values and cannot lead humanity.” —Muslim Brotherhood Supreme
    Guide Muhammed Badi, Sept. 20103
    The Brotherhood claims western democracy is “corrupt,” “unrealistic.” and “false.”
    —Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef 4
    The Brotherhood calls for jihad against “the Muslim’s real enemies, not only Israel but
    also the United States. Waging jihad against both of these infidels is a commandment of
    Allah that cannot be disregarded.” —Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi,
    Sept. 20105

    See footnotes at http://standwithus.com/FLYERS.

    The Brotherhood assassinated Anwar Sadat in 1981 for making peace with the hated
    “Zionist entity.”6 It also assassinated Egypt’s prime minister in 1948 and attempted to
    assassinate President Nasser in 1954.7
    Hamas is a “wing of the Muslim Brotherhood,” according to the Hamas Charter, Chapter 2.
    The Charter calls for the murder of Jews, the “obliteration” of Israel and its replacement with an
    Islamist theocracy.
    The Brotherhood supports Hezbollah’s war against the Jews. Brotherhood leader Mahdi
    Akef declared he was “prepared to send 10,000 jihad fighters immediately to fight at the side of
    Hezbollah” during Hezbollah’s war against Israel in 2006.8
    The Brotherhood glorifies Osama bin Laden. Osama is “in all certainty, a mujahid (heroic
    fighter), and I have no doubt in his sincerity in resisting the occupation, close to Allah on high.”
    —Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef, Nov. 20079
    The Brotherhood “sanctioned martyrdom operations in Palestine.…They do not have
    bombs, so they turn themselves into bombs. This is a necessity.” — Muslim Brotherhood
    Spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Dec. 17, 201010
    The Brotherhood advocates violent jihad: The “change that the [Muslim] nation seeks
    can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that
    pursues death just as the enemies pursue life,” said Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide
    Muhammed Badi in a September 2010 sermon.11 Major terrorists came out of the Muslim
    Brotherhood, including bin Laden’s deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed
    (mastermind of the 9/11 attacks).12
    The Brotherhood advocates a deceptive strategy in democracies: appear moderate and
    use existing institutions to gain power. “The civilizational-jihadist process…is a kind of
    grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and
    ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house…so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made
    victorious overall other religions,” reads a US Muslim Brotherhood 1991 document.13 It
    believes it can conquer Europe peacefully: “After having been expelled twice, Islam will be
    victorious and reconquer Europe….I am certain that this time, victory will be won not by the
    sword but by preaching and [Islamic] ideology.” — Muslim Brotherhood Spiritual leader Yusuf
    al-Qaradawi, “Fatwa,” 200314
    The Brotherhood uses democracy, but once in power it will replace democracy with
    fundamentalist shariah law because it is the “true democracy.” “The final, absolute
    message from heaven contains all the values which the secular world claims to have
    invented….Islam and its values antedated the West by founding true democracy.”
    —Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef, Nov. 200715
    The Brotherhood’s view of women’s rights is to subjugate and segregate women: The
    ideal society would include “a campaign against ostentation in dress and loose
    behaviour…segregation of male and female students; private meetings between men and
    women, unless within the permitted degrees of relationship, to be counted as a crime for which
    both will be censured…prohibition of dancing and other such pastimes.” —Muslim Brotherhood
    founder Hassan al-Banna, “Five Tracts”16
    Produced by StandWithUs.
    See footnotes at http://standwithus.com/FLYERS.

    The Brotherhood supports Female Genital Mutilation: “[the Americans] wage war on
    Muslim leaders, the traditions of its faith and its ideas. They even wage war against female
    circumcision, a practice current in 36 countries, which has been prevalent since the time of the
    Pharaohs.” —Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef, 200717
    The Brotherhood will not treat non-Muslim minorities, such as Coptic Christians, as
    equals. “Allah’s word will reign supreme and the infidels’ word will be inferior.” —Muslim
    Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi, Sept. 201018
    The Brotherhood refuses to commit to continuing the Israel-Egypt peace treaty.19 Muslim
    Brotherhood leaders have said that “as far as the movement is concerned, Israel is a
    Zionist entity occupying holy Arab and Islamic lands…and we will get rid of it no matter
    how long it takes.” —Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef,
    2005 and 200720
    The Brotherhood has anti-Semitic roots. It supported the Nazis, organized mass
    demonstrations against the Jews with slogans promoting ethnic cleansing like “Down with the
    Jews!” and “Jews get out of Egypt and Palestine!” in 1936; carried out a violent pogrom against
    Egypt’s Jews in November 1945; and made sure that Nazi collaborator and Palestinian Mufti al-
    Husseini was granted asylum in Egypt in 1946.21
    The Brotherhood remains virulently anti-Semitic. “Today the Jews are not the Israelites
    praised by Allah, but the descendants of the Israelites who defied His word. Allah was angry
    with them and turned them into monkeys and pigs….There is no doubt that the battle in which
    the Muslims overcome the Jews [will come]….In that battle the Muslims will fight the Jews and
    kill them.” —Muslim Brotherhood Spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi22

    The Brotherhood’s view of women’s rights is to subjugate and segregate women: The
    ideal society would include “a campaign against ostentation in dress and loose
    behaviour…segregation of male and female students; private meetings between men and
    women, unless within the permitted degrees of relationship, to be counted as a crime for which
    both will be censured…prohibition of dancing and other such pastimes.” —Muslim Brotherhood
    founder Hassan al-Banna, “Five Tracts”16
    Produced by StandWithUs.
    See footnotes at http://standwithus.com/FLYERS.

    The Brotherhood supports Female Genital Mutilation: “[the Americans] wage war on
    Muslim leaders, the traditions of its faith and its ideas. They even wage war against female
    circumcision, a practice current in 36 countries, which has been prevalent since the time of the
    Pharaohs.” —Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef, 200717
    The Brotherhood will not treat non-Muslim minorities, such as Coptic Christians, as
    equals. “Allah’s word will reign supreme and the infidels’ word will be inferior.” —Muslim
    Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi, Sept. 201018
    The Brotherhood refuses to commit to continuing the Israel-Egypt peace treaty.19 Muslim
    Brotherhood leaders have said that “as far as the movement is concerned, Israel is a
    Zionist entity occupying holy Arab and Islamic lands…and we will get rid of it no matter
    how long it takes.” —Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef,
    2005 and 200720
    The Brotherhood has anti-Semitic roots. It supported the Nazis, organized mass
    demonstrations against the Jews with slogans promoting ethnic cleansing like “Down with the
    Jews!” and “Jews get out of Egypt and Palestine!” in 1936; carried out a violent pogrom against
    Egypt’s Jews in November 1945; and made sure that Nazi collaborator and Palestinian Mufti al-
    Husseini was granted asylum in Egypt in 1946.21
    The Brotherhood remains virulently anti-Semitic. “Today the Jews are not the Israelites
    praised by Allah, but the descendants of the Israelites who defied His word. Allah was angry
    with them and turned them into monkeys and pigs….There is no doubt that the battle in which
    the Muslims overcome the Jews [will come]….In that battle the Muslims will fight the Jews and
    kill them.” —Muslim Brotherhood Spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi22

    • i’m appalled that people are using this funeral and WBC presence as a springboard for political agenda. Could we PLEASE stick to the topic of WBC’s presence at the funeral service of Sgt. Donna Johnson?

      FOCUS, people, FOCUS!

  69. Hey WBC! Im a national guard member deployed overseas at the moment but i live in Gadsden Alabama! I serve the community free of charge as a volunteer firefighter, wreck or get shot in my damn town n we wont be able to find you in time cause we are “lost”!!

  70. i was saw them get into the national park where a soldier was being laid to rest damn wack jobs westboro was. they got an mp welcome and they left. even the local cops chased them away.

  71. Hey

    These so called releigous group is why I am upset. This group are not nice to anyone the hate is so strong in them. Tanks for doing the right thing.

  72. We shoud not even dignify them by calling them a “church”. They are a small family of ignorant people. We should hereto refer to them(if we must include them at all) as “The Westboro Protestors/Idiots “

  74. I wish someone would the same to some anarchist asswhole. Those dipshits think they have balls doing what they do. Mabye someone should show them by beating the shit out of them and saving old glory when they try to burn it.

  75. To All those on here, do not go to tonykeywest link or any westboro sites. They have new racket now, suing internet threats. Good article below on what their up to. The inbred sociopaths day will come and their little organization will whither in time, and all of them will live in hell for eternity. We gained more honor and loyalty to each other and what we stand for because of you. “What the devil meant for harm God will use for his glory”

  76. Just a thought:

    PGR and the fine citizens of the Sandhills region of North Carolina successfully shielded the family, friends and loved ones of Sgt. Donna Johnson from exposure to the HATE GROUP that calls themselves Westboro Baptist Church.

    Perhaps it’s time we let this thread rest. The more we talk them up, the happier they are. Why make them happy when they try so hard to make others unhappy?

  77. Whenever there is a website where fece smelling cowards, anti-American sleazes, wimps, sneaks, yellow bellied punks and/or worthless humans can post without giving up their true location, they show up like maggot flies. These pukes will always attempt to demoralize that site because they believe they cannot be exposed.
    There have been so many names given to these gutless wonders over the centuries. And unfortunately, it has been impossible to decimate them all because they breed like rats producing hordes of little invertebrated rats just like them. America is infected with them and sadly, they are protected by men and women who wear the patch of old glory on their sleeve and have sworn to uphold our constitution.
    These scumbags feed off of that protection and insult our freedoms.
    They are low-life weaklings who ridicule patriotic men and women who they know would not stand for these insults written here face to face, so they rant, rave and write from a distance where they feel safe. A refuge that has to smell of fear and funk. What cowardly misfits our have soldiers died for.
    A day will come when they will be found……..and these sissies will do what they do best, piss down their leg and shit in their pants. They are easy to spot because they stand out. Good hunting.

  78. That was in Raeford NC, I was there probably 10 ft away from whomever was filming this. The man who ran out first was part of a Veteran’s MC, the police detained him but released him about 20 minutes later. He was given the flag after being released by the soldiers that managed to retrieve it. He was willing to go to jail to defend the Flag from being disrespected by WBC, so it was only right that he should be the one to receive and honor it.

    • Well, ONELAST, thanks SO MUCH for running your mouth in public concerning the players in this event! Now the VMC will probably get sued ~ AND IT’S ON YOUR SHOULDERS for putting the name out there. I respectfully ask that you DELETE YOUR COMMENT. Sheesh…

        • That’s awesome; thank you for offering to help. Unless WBC pushes the issue with the police department for the City of Raeford, NC, they will never know the young man’s name and there will be no issue.

          But if it becomes an issue, we’ll post it here. Thanks again!

          • Thank you and please let us know. This mans fight may just be beginning, the least I can do is help arm him.

  80. I have not bothered to read any of the other posts. I am about to be 36 years old. I was sworn in as an E2 in 1994 in heavy artillery in Fort Sill ,OK. I lived through Desert shield and Desert Storm. And For anyone to disgrace our flag or any of our servicemen or women whom have given their lives just so others can have the freedom to act like
    A-Holes you deserve to get the shit kicked out of you. There is no reason why a member of our military was arrested for defending one of our own. I will happily stand side by side with anyone from our military whom defends one another. And freedom of speech or not you would not have this freedom without our military covering for you.

  81. I agree with you sir, but by following his moral compass this man walked into a trap. One designed specifically for this. How deep he is in it rests solely on WBC and their sense of honor and conscience. If the issue is pushed I hope that enough people will come to his aid to at least send the message that this is not acceptable and that message will be heard.

  84. “Anthony Capo (@tonykeywest) on October 14, 2012 at 5:10 am said:

    the did not ”recover” the flag. they committed battery, strong arm robbery and theft. And has any of you heckling brought any dead soldiers back from the grave. LOL ”

    Anthony, I don’t know what you do for a living, but I sincerely hope that it has nothing to do with the criminal justice system. I suggest you read up on what constitutes the elements of an offense, and also on the definition of “lesser included offenses.” I am not familiar with the state criminal code in NC, but usually “battery” is a civil offense, not a criminal one. The criminal charge is assault, or aggravated assault, or felonious assault, or something similar, depending on the circumstances.

    Also, putting “LOL” after anything sentence that talks about “dead soldiers”, is truly a measure of your callous disregard for human life and the emotions of the family and friends of the deceased.

    However, that is my opinion, and I’m sure that you will have some highly intelligent and amazingly witty reply. Feel free to say whatever you like. After 34 years in law enforcement I’ve heard it all and been called it all. I doubt that you will be unable to come up with anything new.

    • Based on “Anthony Capo”s atrocious grammar and obvious envy of our beloved soldiers, I’d venture a guess that (a) he watches The Sopranos regularly (although he’d never cut it in organized crime, LOL) and (b) that his bottom feeder intelligence prevented him from joining the service.

      Thank you, Jesus, for keeping that one out of the ranks!

  85. Even though I am disgraced to be a defender of freedom for such douches like WBC and others who take advantage of the rights that were written over 200 years ago, which are now being overly used for what they were intended for, but according to the US Supreme Court, the desecration of teh US Flag, is not against the law, even if a state deems it so. Some states have it as misdemeanors and some as felonies to desecrate the flag in anyway shape or form, but state can not trump federal and the Supreme Court in the case Texas v Johnson, the Supreme Court ruled that the flag was a symbol of the US and that it is not the US itself that is being threatened. Do we hate this fact, “YES”, and the House has been trying to pass an Amendment to protect the flag, and is deemed unconsitutuional by the Supreme Court. The cops let the Soldier go only because they knew the WBC idiot deserved it. I feel that a punch in teh face to the WBC is a freedom of speech and expression, since it will be the only way to get the point across, but that would constitute assauly and battery, unless you can articulate.

    • The man didn’t get punched. The cops didn’t “let him go”. The soldier was charged with Inciting A Riot and the Magistrate refused to see the charges through because no riot ensued.

  86. If/when the soldier has a lawsuit filed against him, I’d be willing to kick a few bucks his way for a good defense lawyer…

      • True, still these people are not patriots or christians in their behavior. I think they might consider migrating to a country where this intolerance is acceptable . Iraq seems like a good starting point.

  87. I find it ironic that the WBC openly hates and despises a nation that has laws in place allowing them to openly hate and despise it. Honestly if they tried this anywhere else, at best they’d be arrested, and at worst they’d be shot.
