Now....face the fury of the Phoenix Force!

This is not the kind of retaliation against WBC I think would happen, but....

Alleged son of Westboro Baptist Church leader attacked in publicity stunt by naked 500lb man who burst out of bathroom, sat on him and shouted: 'Who's your daddy?'

quote:

A video that shows a fat naked man pouncing on a bearded man during a television interview has been revealed to be a publicity stunt.
It was claimed that a son of gay-hate church leader Fred Phelps has been attacked live on TV by an obese naked man who sat on him and shouted 'who's your daddy now?'
Supposed Westboro Baptist Church member David Phelps was being interviewed in a mobile studio when a 35-stone man, who was wearing no clothes, suddenly burst out of a loo to confront him.
An actor posing as the son of Fred who does not exist was angrily commenting on a forthcoming live crucifixion, which U.S.-based TV station Battlecam intends to broadcast on Easter Sunday.

I don't know if the guy or not, but this is the most bizarre 'attack' on Westboro I've seen. You'd think someone would try to assault them with a weapon, but it seems all you need to repel them is obese, nude men.

Hmm. Makes me wonder if a WBC member is Sacha Baron Cohen's next character.

So a guy claiming to be Phelps' son is ambushed by a naked man in a staged interview. An interview about a sado-masochist crucifying himself...

Real or a hoax, I hope this inspires more fat naked men to sit on WBC members.

If I can press ham naked on that Shirley Phelps Roper bitch, I'd take it. Maybe not wipe that day, run backwards at her like a Venus flytrap, clamp on and just smear her with God's Love.

I'm fairly certain that if you did this, the speed in which donations came pouring in to pay your bail would set a world record. I know I would contribute.

The crucifixion itself looks partially real enough (NWS, marginally NMS I suppose)

As a friend of the attacker (Billy the Fridge) in the video, I regret to inform you that it was staged as part of Alki David's Battlecam Online Reality Show:

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/201...ut-of-bathroom/

Yeah, I know it's not a great source either, but between the twitter denial included in that link and mutual friends of Billy and I telling me that it was a fake, it's probably a fake. I could send him an email to triple check if anyone really cares.

What shall we do with him? A permaban, perhaps? Probate him for a few years? Or...shall we employ a big red custom title? You, the goons of SA, shall decide his fate.

That wasn't David Phelps (and Wikipedia lists no such person among Fred's children). That was Nate Phelps, Big Time Real Person.

Dammit, Lowtax. You've made me love the phrase 'Big Time Real ______' too much after you used it just once.

drat, I was hoping for this to be true so much but c'mon guys - that video is just horrific acting and I don't know how any of you could think it's even slightly real. Also, Fred Phelps doesn't even seem to have a son named David.

Seriously, what the fuck.



I was going to say "I wouldn't mind sitting on Megan Phelps naked " but then I looked for a picture of her to post and saw that she apparently left the church, and now that seems kind of disrespectful and, in retrospect, misogynistic. So I guess, I wouldn't mind taking Megan Phelps to a nice dinner and talking to her about her current attitudes towards homosexuals...













...naked.
