Westboro Baptist Church Member Gets His Comeuppance While Protesting Military Funeral for Gay Soilder

An unidentified Westboro Baptist Church member was jumped and tackled to the ground to the cheers of many while disrespecting the flag and the military funeral for openly gay Army  Staff Sgt. Donna Johnson who died in a suicide bomber attack while on patrol in  Afghanistan. She is survived by her wife Tracy Dice.

From the blog Guardian of Valor:

So at the funeral today for Fallen Soldier Sgt. [Donna] Johnson a Westboro member decided it would be smart to stomp on the American flag. A Soldier did not take kindly to that and broke through the line, hitting one of the protesters that was disgracing Old Glory. As he was being arrested, two other Soldiers rescued the flag. The first video was filmed bu a friend of mine, the person you see jumping around with the flag is also a buddy. The second video was made by another person there to protect the funeral it is a little clearer. The person you see jumping around right before the Soldier runs in and clocks the member is a friend of mine. The Soldier was not charged and later released.

Now I know that  many of you will be taking the high road on this and twittering on about freedom of speech…..which is fine; but Freedom of Speech does come with a price.,  America like Rome is burning, the WBC, FRC,  and their like seek to deprive us of our rights and demonise us by saying and doing any repulsive thing they can while hiding behind FOS; the Republicans have veered to the extreme right; and Huckabee, Hannity, and the rest now have their own hate pulpits. If these people want to use their FOS to spread hate and bile.  Then they should also expect to face the consequences of thier actions by people who don;t like hearing what they have to say.

  1. My Prayer’s go out to Tracy Dice Sgt. Johnson’s wife. Sgt Donna Johnson died for her Country, it does not reflex what she did or how she performed her work. If you do not like her life style that is your problem. I’am proud to have had her in our Armed Forces and Service our Country. One thing is for sure, I’am truely sorry for our Country’s Loss of Such a True American Solider. God Bless Sgt Johnson and her family, as for she wil be missed, by her Family and by her Military Family. I’am so Happy to see on this day that one person stood up and made a stand that You Westboro person, that you can not put your foot on our Flag. That goes for anyone in the World who would like to do that. If you look while he police on taking control of the matter, the prostester’s from Westboro are backing up away from the line. Wise very wise. Thank You Sir for going over to the Police and getting the American Flag and Waving it so very Proud as it should be. Again you were all there for Sgt Johnson and not to have Westboro show there butt but as America knows they are very good at being the butt of it.
