Subject: URGENT: CALL FOR ACTION
Scott, we need an immediate posting on SUA. PLEASE!!!! I will not stand for this crap in my state!Stand Up America needs urgent assistance. Central Pennsylvania just witnessed a devastating and heartbreaking tragedy this past week. A farming community lost seven of its most precious children due to a house fire. Today, the Westboro Baptist Church as stated that they plan on protesting the funeral services for the Clouse family. Please come to honor the Clouse family during their time of mourning.
WBC plans to picket and protest the funeral of 7 innocent children. We, Stand Up America, will not stand for this. Show up, and let's form a barrier to shield the family and friends of the children from seeing or hearing the WBC. There will be closed-casket visitation at the reception center from 5 to 9 p.m. Monday and from 10 to 11 a.m. Tuesday. The service for the children of Theodore and Janelle Clouse will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Perry Mennonite Reception Center in Elliottsburg, PA.Again, this is a PEACEFUL barrier. Let's show the WBC what true American Patriots are through respect and tact. No yelling, making obscene gestures, ect to members of the WBC. Their actions shall not stand when they see what a truly united faith centric people can achieve.Please disseminate as fast as possible to all outlets to achieve the largest showing possible in support of this family and seven of God's greatest creations.Kerry Patton
Contact the local Patriot Guard Riders State Captain. The PGR cannot respond as an organized unit but the Ride Captain can send a message to his riders letting them know the situation. They are always free to participate as "individuals".
Some of the folks here should study the recent decision by SCOTUS. When you kill one, you kill them all. There are better ways to handle the WBC dirtbags! Don't fall into their trap. Constitutional Rights are for all of us, not just for those that agree with our position.
Way to go Shane..I'm sure they will respond in time as long as the family of the situation requests their presence.As Brasscookie stated..they can call the Penn state PGR Captain..they can get many riders out there within a sometimes 24 hour notice.
No no no!, that's the official position of the PGR! Communicate with the State Captain. A non-unit response is perfectly acceptabel. The PGR's will just not be able to wear the official PGR Arm Band. Believe me, we do this frequently.
The Official Positipon of the Patriot Guard Riders is for Military Escorts. "Riders" are free to participate as individuals.
Go back and try again. They will show up even with short notice. Get folks from your Church and like minded groups to works as a shield to keep these hateful creeps away from the families. WBC may not even show up. They love to threaten because they know we will jump through hoops to stop them.
