Vietnam Vet Arrested For Throwing Coffee At Westboro Baptist Church Members Dragging The American Flag At Funeral

One of the greatest things about America is that we’re free as fuck. We reek of liberty. But unfortunately, on the other side of the coin, that allows mouth-breathers like the Westboro Baptist Church members to be protected by law enforcement for all the inhumane shit they do. If my face were on Mount Rushmore, I’d rent out the Superdome, strip all Westboro members naked, and release two hungry tigers onto the field. The naked part is completely unnecessary but its always funnier to see someone run for their lives with their junk flapping around. I’d sell tickets for the event and donate all proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project. May start a GoFundMe right after this post.

The Westboro Baptist Church’s latest shenanigans? Protesting the funeral of former Delaware attorney general Beau Biden in Wilmington, Delaware. A small group, including Richard Pierce, 64, a former Marine and Vietnam veteran, congregated for a counter-protest with all intent of remaining peaceful to show respect for Biden.

But, in true Westboro fashion, they took protesting to an unacceptable level.

According to USA Today, Richard Pierce saw one of the Westboro Baptist Church protesters dragging and stepping on the American flag she had tied just under her knees, something inside of him “snapped.”

So, after the funeral mass ended and the WBC members were putting their hateful signs in the trunk of their car, he hummed a full cup of hot coffee he bought at McDonald’s that morning, striking two of them.

Says Pierce,

“It was not my intention to cause a problem. However, when I saw the young lady walking across the highway, dragging our flag under her feet, I lost my temper and the only way that I could demonstrate that is spill my coffee on them.”

Pierce was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.

If these charges stick, its going to be tough for me not to pack up and move to Canada. That’s not the America I signed up for. My grandfather is probably rolling around in his grave as I write this.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
