When Westboro Baptist Church Came to Town

Assemblymember Dov Hikind was restrained by police when he tried to knock signs out of the hands of the Phelps family.

150 counter-demonstrators were at Chabad of Kensington, including photographers and reporters.



  • In the end, the counterdemonstrators are also foolish for falling into this time-tested trap: nutty fringe group with 10 members uses provocation and winds up attracting large protest and (most important of all) media coverage. Hence, said fringe group winds up getting far more attention and exposure than they would otherwise get.

    These people have no power and would vanish if ignored.
