6 months in jail for being a responsible father.
Just living life as I planned it to be lived.
Looks like I’m transferring to the best university next fall 🙌🙌🙌
Never felt more like home
Somehow they forgot to mention that in every history class I ever had.
They can’t teach it because then people will know that White people weren’t the only ones to own slaves and that Blacks weren’t the only people to be slaves. It goes against their whole “evil White oppressors” thing.
Actually we learned about this in our history class already and the year just begun. There was literally a whole section in our history book about how Ottoman Turks owned Slavic slaves and Slavs are where the word “slave” comes from…
This is a photo of students at Texas A&M who found out that Westboro Baptist Church was going to protest a fallen soldier who was an Aggie Alumni. They formed this wall to protect his family and friends from what could have been a horrible and traumatic experience.
I have to say that this has to be one of the BEST things I have ever seen, in a world full of hatred and anger it is amazing to see such a large group of individuals participate in such a selfless act.
Here are the details from the Facebook Event:
Westboro Baptist Church has announced their intention to protest the funeral of a fallen Ag.
Lt Col. Roy Tisdale
It is proposed that we respond with true Aggie spirit.
In response to their yelling, we will be silent. Like silver taps, like Bonfire Memorial.
In response to their signs of hate, we will wear maroon.
In response to their mob anger, we will form a line, arm in arm.
This is a silent vigil. A manifestation of our solidarity.
We must establish and enforce some ground rules, because Westboro loves pushing their constitutional rights down our throat.
1. Do not engage their protesters physically or verbally. The strength of our statement is in our silence. I have heard some groups may intend to razz or antagonize WBC. Remember why we are there, a funeral for the fallen.
2. One Line, no circle. We shall form a line between the protesters and the church. Circles, legally, could be seen as threatening. They have a right to their free speech, we have a right to our free silence. if the line is long, double the line, but don’t stand in the street, and don’t attempt to physically block WBC protesters.
3. Hydrate. Its going to be hot. Bring sunscreen and water to share if you can. In accordance with the solemn image we are trying to project, please no food or alcohol.
3. WE WILL DISPERSE IF REQUESTED BY THE FAMILY, LAW ENFORCEMENT, OR CHURCH STAFF. No ifs, ands, or buts. We are not a mob, we are a family.
4. WE WILL POLICE OURSELVES. If a fellow Ag breaks the above rules we will, as a group, handle it peacefully. If someone is getting aggressive or emotional we will walk them from the line, talk to them, calm them. Be a family to one another.
Invite fellow Ag’s to this group, tell Ag’s who show up, tell the world, BUT tell them the rules. Our image is to be silent, professional, and solemn. A fitting tribute for one of so many of our own whom have given their all for our freedom.
We will be making contact with the church and hopefully securing the permission of the family asap. Stay tuned for details.
