The greatest gif of today, and possibly of 2013: FLOTUS rolling her eyes at John Boehner. (Republicans crying about her being “disrespectful” in 3…2…)
That is some major league shade. I’m actually impressed she was that restrained - I wouldn’t have been if I had to sit next to John Boehner.
Fred Phelps does not believe what he is doing. This is a scam. It’s a business. They travel the country, set up websites telling you exactly when they’ll be there, and using the most inflammatory statements all over the place, just to get someone to violate their rights for profit. Then they sue the military, the police force that was to protect them, and everyone that is around them for money. This is a sham, and it is a trap to get people sued. Every member of his family is an attorney. Phelps does not break the law. What he does is try to make you break the law by trying to punch your sensibilities about everything you hold dear, and then sue you and everyone municipality around him to the max. This is a scam.
This moment prefaces the second best* bit of dialogue in film history:
Ralph Fiennes’ wife: “Harry! It’s an inanimate fucking object!”
Ralph Fiennes, screaming as only Ralph Fiennes can: “YOU’RE AN INANIMATE FUCKING OBJECT!”
*The best bit of dialogue in film history is, naturally, Daniel Day Lewis as Bill the Butcher in Gangs of New York: “I don’t give a twopenny fuck for your moral conundrum, you meatheaded shitsack!”
All of the internet has led to this.
