I Love Karma

Background -
Albert Snyder, father of Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, sued the WBC and was awarded $5 million dollars after their protest at his son’s funeral.

The WBC is the group that forced the formation of the Patriot Guard Riders (PGR). They travel around the country protesting at the funerals of service members that have been killed in the War on Terror. It is said that they fund there travel by suing anyone that physically strikes out at them.

Thus we (The PGR) are a shield for the family. We do not confront, we stand, with our backs to them, shoulder to shoulder, with 3x4 flags and if required will start motorcycles to drown them out.

The story -
I love this line, “A federal judge in Baltimore ordered Westboro Baptist Church members to post their church building and nearly $500,000 more in cash and property while appealing a judgment for protesting a Marine’s funeral.”

You can read the rest of the story here.

Justice is NOT blind! I hope more families step up and sue these bastards. (excuse the potty mouth)

And big hugs to you and all of the PGR.

I'm so glad that our justice system is grinding these bigots up in its huge, sometimes circumspect gears.

DNR, THANKS for being part of the PGR. I know you're standing up for the soldiers and their families, and that's so damn honorable that it moves me to tears. But you're also standing up and saying "it's NOT okay to be a bigot, it's NOT okay to hate someone unconditionally because of their lifestyle, and it's SURE AS HELL !!NOT!! okay to use your hateful agenda to hurt those who don't even have anything to do with the people you hold such intense anger towards."

Thank you, thank you, thank you, my friend.

DNR, this is priceless. Just priceless.

Thank you. often I wonder this sometimes...Why isn't the IRS investigating these frauds?

Jan said...

DNR..that is great news!

What they have done, there, and other places, too, is totally heartless and cruel.

I admire you so much for what you do!

Thanks for sharing that story, DNR, and thanks for being a part of the Patriot Guards.

This should give pause to the protestors. It's about time they got some legal slapdown.

Free Speech doesn't cover harrassment.
