Targeted for a demonstration by the tantrum-throwing hate whores of the Westboro Baptist Church, Comic-Con's cosplayers fought fire with fire - very clever fire - in San Diego this afternoon.


Rewind: Westboro Baptist - basically, they're piece-of-shit griefers known for disrupting military funerals with their "God Hates Fags" picket lines, last week said they were picketing Comic-Con, I guess because it represented the idolatrous worship of demigods like J'onn J'onzz and Ant-Man. A counterprotest quickly organized , seeking to raise money for donation to two comic-related philanthropies. That's what you're seeing here.

Congratulations to the counterprotest participants and especially the organizers, for pulling off such a spectacular victory over hate with irony and class, not to mention a wink and a smile.
