White House’s Westboro Baptist Church Hate GIF
The GIF is too large to post here, click out to the link.
The White House finally responded to the most popular petition (or rather, five petitions) to ever appear on its website: A call to classify the Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group. As is often the case, the Obama administration’s response is a bit underwhelming. The White House explains “the federal government doesn’t maintain a list of hate groups,” though the president did sign a law limiting demonstrations at military funerals, and agrees that such practices are “reprehensible.” That’s not the fiery rebuke the petitions’ 674,569 supporters were looking for, but as a consolation prize the White House provided this GIF that maps out where the group is most widely reviled.
