This is not going to be very jolly. I couldn't sit and say nothing anymore. Normally, WTF are usually meant to be funny with a side of sarcasm. We go after celebrities and things that make you scratch your head. The normal things that would make you say WTF. Today is going to be a little different. On Friday, a young male took the lives of 26 people. 20 of the victims were children that ages were 6 and 7. This tragedy has ripped the heart out of our nation right before Christmas. Our hearts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the victims. It was not right hearing young children tell the details of this event. However, this morning in the midst of all the awesome gestures from across the country to the people of Newtown, there is one group of people that made my stomach turn. I got up this morning and did the same thing that I am guessing that half the people in this country did. I checked Facebook and saw a news story from The Huffington Post that shook me to the very core of my spine.


For those of you who do not know about the Westboro Baptist Church, they are the so called "church" that goes around and protest soldiers funerals and anyone that has died of AIDS. I really hate calling them a church. In all honesty, for the rest of this piece, I am going to call them The Westboro Baptist Cult. The WBC spokesperson Shirley Phelps-Roper stated on her Twitter that Westboro will be picketing Sandy Hook Elementary School. They have also gone on record by saying that God sent the gunman to kill. I don't know how may of you are Christians but this is not what Christianity is. These people are not filled with love and every time I hear them say that it makes want to vomit. Innocent children were killed and this is the response you give. What if it was one of your children was killed? You would be calling out for justice and everyone to help you in your time of need. You know what, the day one of your cult members die, I swear to the good Lord that you supposedly worship by spreading the word of hate, that there will be a protest like no one has ever seen before. I think the old testament says it best, an eye for an eye.

This is where we need to take a stand against this kind of hate in our own country. A group called Anonymous has vowed retribution. Anonymous is a group of hacktivists. Normally I am against anything like this but these people and I use the term people loosely, deserve every bit of retribution that is shown against them. Also, the website Reddit is asking for people to volunteer to be a blockade against this cult so things can go smoothly in Newtown CT.

Here is the cryptic video posted by Anonymous earlier today. I am glad that there are people like these guys and gals, the freedom riders and others who will stand up for what is right against a bunch of people who damn nut jobs.

Tonight, I want everyone to take the time to think. Instead of wondering about what you want for Christmas, maybe it is time to be thankful for what you have. Cause you never know, it may be gone tomorrow.
