The Westboro Baptist Church got a bit of a surprise on Friday when they showed up to their scheduled hatefest protest at the Joint Base Lewis-McChord military facility in Dupont, Washington and were faced with counter-protesters dressed as ZOMBIES.
27 year old Melissa Neace, thought up the Zombie protest against Westboro. “We wanted to turn something negative around, into something people could laugh at and poke fun at. It was the easiest way to divert attention from something so hateful.”
Neace summoned her hordes in the traditional way: She built a Facebook group, “Zombie’ing Westboro Baptist Church AWAY from Fort Lewis!”
About 300 Zombies and counter-protestors showed up.
Unfortunately no WBC members were eaten during the protest.
