The Satanists from the Westboro Baptist Church got a rude but well deserved surprise when they attempted to disrupt the funeral of Marine Corporal Richard Bennet, who died at the age of 25 while serving his country honorably in Iraq. The mental midgets at Westboro believes God kills soldiers because of homosexuality. Westboro made the mistake of telegraphing their intentions. Bennet’s family was devastated that Richard’s funeral and Richard himself would be so disrespected.
But they needn’t have worried because a group of bikers who call themselves the Patriots Guard announced that they too would be attending. They formed a circle around the cemetery all holding American flags and every time the Satanists tried to start a chant, bikers would rev their engines and drown them out.
Ken Van, a member of The Patriots Guard and pastor said:
“No family should have to face this type of hatred on the day that they’re putting their loved ones to rest. Bennet died defending our sacred freedoms, and he even died to give the fringe members of the Westboro Baptist Church the right to picket his own funeral, but just because they have the right to speak doesn’t mean we have to listen.”
The Patriots Guard showed up at the funeral and formed a human fence around the premises, with each member holding an American flag. They used their motorcycles’ engines to drown out the sounds of the Westboro Baptist Church’s hateful chants.
