I saw this earlier last week, on the local news, when it occurred, but here’s a link to a better re-counting of the whole story, with dash-cam video of the crowd lining the route to the cemetery. A special “hat tip” to my favorite milblog, Blackfive.net for the link.
Mississippians get a lot of bad raps, some of it certainly well deserved, but this is one case where the “ignorant rednecks” of Rankin County, MS had the Westboro Baptist crowd figured out. Perhaps others around the country should take note. To paraphrase Charlie Daniels….. “Westboro, ya’ll just come on back, if you ever want to try again”!
