Hate Monument

2003-10-07 15:51:03.151388+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

In light of my "let's liberate South Carolina and Kansas" comment in the previous entry, add Wyoming to the list: Starjewel had a link to an article about the monument that Fred Phelps is installing in Casper, Wyoming, that revels in the death of Matthew Shepard. It's on public property that the city council previously allowed a 10 commandments statue on, so they have to allow pretty much anything folks want to install.

You'll remember that Phelps was part of creating the climate of hate and fear that drove NewTek out of Kansas, depriving that economy of the benefits of high tech white collar jobs.

Of course, the other alternative is to crush the monument with a bulldozer and then tell Phelps to go fuck himself.
