The folks in charge of drowning out the Westboro Nuts wanted me to post this:
Your Help is Urgently Needed!
As you know, there is a community memorial service for Navy SEAL Marc Lee this Saturday. What you don’t know is that the Westboro Baptist Church from Topeka, Kansas and another protest group are planning on attending to try and disrupt the service.
I don’t think it matters whether you are for or against the Iraq War. I am appalled that any group will show such disrespect for a family at a memorial service for their son who has been killed. We need to do what we can to shield the Lee family from these people.
You, probably like me, has never met Debbie or her son Marc. But I hope that you will join me in surrounding the protesters on Saturday so that their antics are drowned out. These people are not nice! These people are not respectful! Just visit their website at www.godhatesamerica.com. You will not believe what you see. I cannot imagine having to deal with these kinds of people at the funeral or memorial service of a family member.
Please, we need as many people as possible to dress in the ‘ol red, white and blue and bring American flags. We would like to line the 2nd street over pass, the road to the Expo Center and completely surround the protesters who will be confined to Lot 6 at the Port. Lot 6 is directly west of the Luhr Jensen Plant.
Here are the details:

for a family member!
