Ignore Him

"You thought you could play with Anonymous. You observed our rising notoriety and thought you would exploit our paradigm for your own gain," said the group in a press release.
"When Anonymous says we support free speech, we mean it. We count Beatrice Hall among our Anonymous forebears: 'I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.' "
That was the response to members of Pastor Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church who claim to have discovered the underlying purpose of the Internet: using it "to tell this nation & this world that your destruction draws nigh."
While it was unclear what they thought of other priceless online frivolities, such as lolcats or Something Awful, but there's one online entity in particular has tweaked the "God Hates Fags" people, and they made their feelings clear in a media advisory posted to their website.
"GOD HATES FAGS & LOUSY 'HACKERS!'" they declared, apparently responding to a missive from protest group "Anonymous," which was well known for becoming a persistent antagonist to another group of religious fanatics: the Church of Scientology.
"The only reason the Internet exists is for Westboro Baptist Church to tell this nation & this world that your destruction draws nigh."
Phelps's bizarre press release was issued in response to a letter published to, an unofficial, uncensored channel for members to post details relevant to their forthcoming actions.

"Cease & and desist your protest campaign in the year 2011, return to your homes in Kansas, & close your public Web sites," the first "Anonymous" letter demanded. "Should you ignore this warning, you will meet with the vicious retaliatory arm of ANONYMOUS: We will target your public Websites, and the propaganda & detestable doctrine that you promote will be eradicated; the damage incurred will be irreversible, and neither your institution nor your congregation will ever be able to fully recover.

The response from Phelps was an even more rare public tantrum, claiming that the Anonymous was the result of the lack of spankings and proper parental and religious discipline. Westboro Spokeswoman, Shirley Lynn Phelps Roper appeared on The David Packman Show and suggested that go would punish the "cowardly"members of Anonymous, adding that some people know the identities of those participating in the group. This generation doesn't talk about spanking children, in fact, they don't," Phelps-Roper explained. "That's why we have groups like Anonymous running around. Just connect these dots."

Members of 'Anonymous' have suggested that the campaign launched against the Westboro Baptist Church was a trap and not in line with the free speech philosophy of the group.
"They make all their money from suing people who fight back, so they're just waiting for IPs to sue," a press release on stated. "I have a bad feeling that it's all a trap, made by them so they can get some money and attention.
What I find most fascinating about Anonymous is the hive intelligence. It is, to me, evidence of a new stage of intellectual evolution. A hybrid human cyber assisted organism, beyond what we would call anarchy, this is the dawn of a new intelligence. The process by which Anonymous arrives at it's focus of action is a collective cyber hive mentality. They thought they should make Phelps a target, then through the collective deliberations, in a matter of hours, they arrived at the proper response...IGNORE HIM!
And Anonymous is correct!

Fred Phelps does not believe what he is doing. This is a scam.
It's a business. They travel the country, set up websites telling you exactly when they'll be there, and using the most inflammatory statements all over the place, just to get someone to violate their rights for profit. Then they sue the military, the police force that was to protect them, and everyone that is around them for money. This is a sham, and it is a trap to get people sued. Every member of his family is an attorney. Phelps does not break the law. What he does is try to make you break the law by trying to punch your sensibilities about everything you hold dear, and then sue you and everyone municipality around him to the max.
This is a scam.
Whether he believes his posters or not is irrelevant.
He's using this as a moneymaking scheme.
Lay one finger on him, do one thing that violates him, and he will sue you, and more importantly, the city, the police department, the US Military, and any private property owner he happens to be standing on to make money off of it.
Let's look at the ways he's trying to get you up in a tizzy to violate his civil rights for profit:

He says God Hates Fags, God hates the US Govt., that God hates the US Military, God Hates you, and God justifies the killing of others.
Phelps knows that saying 'God' and 'Hate' in the same sentence gets people worked up. He knows that. He knows that people have a knee jerk reaction to that.

He says that the US Govt. and the United States are evil.
This is another hot button with people who love their country. It is intentional. It is designed to make you take a swing at him. He wants $50,000 from you. He wants a Powerball winner to swing at him so he gets 100 million dollars. It's that simple.

He goes after homosexuals, he goes after people who are making sacrifices. Phelps intentionally targets people that are being victimized, or good people doing their jobs to create more outrage. He kicks people when they're down. He does that so someone will come up and defend them. Then he will sue you.

His boards are laminated on hardwood, because he pulls them out of trucks at least five times a week. He also puts them in bright colors for attention, and makes absolutely sure that you can read them at all time. He's phishing you. Everyone must know that.

The most telling tale about all of Phelp's behavior is the schedule he keeps, and the company he keeps as well. The parties sometimes split up and go to two separate state funerals to maximize the profitability of them. There are, at maximum, twelve members to the party. They never stay more than thirty minutes (I assume they realize that someone will do something to them the MOMENT they come out of the vans, and really, after that, they get their camera shots to cause the outrage for the next stop, and then they move on) to maximize their profits, because time is money, and really, they're not interested in the message, because they're just interested in the lawsuit.
See? They don't believe this stuff. If they did, they wouldn't have come to Coretta Scott King's funeral. Because in their doctrine, they don't believe that god hates black people who tried to promote Christianity. So why were they there? They were there to make a buck when someone slipped up. They were there to petition the police department for a right to protest, and if they didn't get it, take them to court over it.
Basically, Phelps is playing the Ken Lay, Karl Rove, "Smartest Man in the Room" game where he is willing to do anything (if it be lying or stealing, or telling you God hates you) to make himself rich and powerful. This is his scheme, and admittedly, it's clever, but just downright evil to promote so much hatred in the world.
Tell all your friends about this.
This man is a con artist, and he's not a man of religion whatsoever.
After all, he makes everyone around him a lawyer.
That should tell you right now he is not anything.

Ignore Him, PLEASE!...That is his most fitting punishment....
