Fire and Brimstone and Fire

Westboro Baptist Church style preachers showed up at the inauguration day protests in Portland. Just as they did at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, they staked out a spot and bravely harried the crowd with intentionally offensive rhetoric. This guy held out for well over an hour. There were no other counter-protesters there. They drew a hostile crowd immediately. Some of the anti-Trump protesters formed a cordon around them to prevent their fellows from assaulting them. The last time I checked I saw they had been pelted with some sort of thick red liquid. They managed at least to upstage the flag burning.
