Westboro Baptist Church newest ally in right-wing media's war on Jennings

Sean Hannity, Andrew Breitbart, and the editorial board of the Washington Times have picked up a new ally in their war against Obama administration official Kevin Jennings: the Westboro Baptist Church. The WBC will be protesting Jennings today outside a high school in Long Beach, CA. The right-wing media didn't seem to care that they were cribbing their Jennings smears from the anti-gay “hate group” MassResistance; perhaps this new development with cause them to have a bit of a gut-check.

The WBC are no ordinary anti-gay group - they are complete lunatics. The group is best known for protesting funerals of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, claiming that their deaths are inflicted by God to punish the United States for accepting the “sin” of homosexuality, and carrying signs reading “God Hates Fags.” One of their websites - godhatesamerica.com - attributes swine flu, the September 11 terrorist attacks, Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the Columbia Shuttle crash, the Sago Mine collapse, the Minnesota bridge collapse, the Virginia Tech shooting, and the stock market crash on “God's Wrath.” In short, they claim, “It's the fags, stupid.” WBC has been classified a “general hate” group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The WBC website (tastefully named godhatesfags.com) writes of today's protest:

Wilson Classical High School 4400 E. 10th St. To show the depth of the intelligence of residents/prisoners/WHOOPS, I meant students at this High School, check out this email from one of the brutes who attend: “From: [NAME AND EMAIL DELETED] Sent: Wednesday, February 17, 2010 12:51 AM To: Servants of God @ WBC Subject: Wilson High School I know its know use but on behalf of wilson high school and all of long beach we would like to ask you politely to leave our city what you people present and support is evil, offensive, and unwanted in our city and in our world you guys can believe what you want but please don't bring it here to a place that really is dangerous for you. I have faith in people and in our future...may god forgive and im sure he will what you guys are doing im sure you the good intentions spreading the word is great but when you spread evil and anger nothing comes of it but more negativity” DEEP man, DEEP! WHATEV. . . WBC will be here to tell you a few things about Kevin Jennings. When you look at the good for nothing youth of DOOMED america, what do you think? No brains, no truth, no life, no love for their neighbors! Therefore, WBC is determined that each place we go, all the children who you adults have lied to to, get this message: TWO WORDS define Antichrist Obama's “Education Plan” , to wit: KEVIN JENNINGS, United States Education Czar. This fag who started GSAs and GLSEN Organizations all across DOOMED america. Now 63 years old, with ZERO CHILDREN of his own, this fag is DETERMINED to sodomize all of you children he and Obama can get their filthy, bloody hands on. Flee these lying false prophets, kids. God hates fags (Romans 1) and their hateful enablers (June 15). Jennings/Obama say “screw you buddy” to God. That is why God has sent them to punish your parents for lying to you all your lives long. Praise God and Fear Him! AMEN!

When you look around and find yourself on the same side as an organization that casually discusses how "Barack Obama is the Antichrist, and is leading doomed america to her final destruction and the destruction of the world," and how "The Jews have a long rich history of being fags and fag enablers," it's time to pick a new side.
