I'm certainly not saying it is in any way decent or right to protest at a person's funeral. What the Phelps clan does is deplorable, and I wouldn't feel the least bit of sympathy for any of them if they were all to be run over by a semi at their next event.

You said 'they would get an asswhoopin' and I said 'you're gonna beat the **** outa some poor fella that talks smack'.
How is what I said a straw man. Let me help you. It isn't. You said something clearly. I responded. Imply that I said something lacking intelligence again if it helps you feel as if you still have some power in this conversation instead of feeling like a punk that got smacked by your own folly.
I want to say there should be a law about this. But if we got a law about this? That would open it up for other free speech issues.
It takes people lower than whale dung to be doing stuff like this and I wish DEATH-that is right-DEATH on anybody that would do such a disgusting thing

Flea, maybe you'd like to collect your thoughts a bit, because they are all over the place.
You took Coronado's statements to an illogical extreme, suggesting that he would beat up some old man for talking smack about the armed forces. (What does Italian have to do with it anyway?)
We're talking about the Phelp's clan activities and things of that level, not about every moron with more mouth than brains.
