Zombies never get a break. Seems like everywhere they go, people try to kill them. I say let's give them another chance, because sometimes zombies even zombies have the right idea. Today a horde of zombies took to the streets to protest a protest by the execrable Westboro Baptist Church, as reported by the Huffington Post.
To quote the article, in part:
A Westboro Baptist Church protest was overshadowed Friday when demonstrators dressed as zombies gathered at a DuPont, Wash. military base to counter the radical group's efforts.
After members of the controversial Kansas-based church announced plans to picket Joint Base Lewis-McChord, a military base south of Seattle, 27-year-old Melissa Neace decided to organize a counter-protest, launching a Facebook group titled "Zombie'ing Westboro Baptist Church AWAY from Fort Lewis!"
"We wanted to turn something negative around, into something people could laugh at and poke fun at," Neace told the News Tribune. "It was the easiest way to divert attention from something so hateful."
I think this is a fabulous idea! Someone should seriously organize this into a regular movement. Any time word gets out that the WBC will be protesting anything, they should be met by a horde of zombies who paw at them frantically crying "No brains!! No brains!!"
Zombies have a social conscience too!
