Weston, MO is not far from Fort Leavenworth, KS. It’s a cute little town that Bill and I enjoyed visiting while we lived there. They have the best Memorial Day parade wherein the parade itself is 2 or 3 times longer than the parade route. They also have a great Irish restaurant.
And they have fabulously patriotic residents who stand united against despicable abusers of our First Amendment rights.
The counter-protesters blocked the corner where Westboro had a permit to assemble, and they also formed a human shield at the funeral home. I am all in favor of freedom of speech, but I think it is clearly meant to be freedom to speak your opinion against the government, businesses, and public individuals not freedom to harass private citizens. Shouting profanities at grieving family members who are burying their dead should not be in the realm of protected speech.
Good job, Weston.
