Firefighters from Newtown, Connecticut, and elsewhere, have formed a human shield to block the promised picket by the Westboro Baptist Church, who call themselves “God Hates Fags.” The WBC promised to picket the funerals of the 20 children and six adults who were killed in Friday’s Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.
The Westboro Baptist Church announced they would be present in Newtown specifically to attend today’s funeral of Newtown’s beloved hero, Sandy Hook Principal Dawn Hochsprung.
Anonymous, the Internet hacktivist collective, took WBC’s websites down, and promised to help in Newtown also.
Stay tuned — we’ll have more soon.
