For those of you wondering, it happened: Brandon Jazz, an Armed Force of one, did indeed go toe to toe with minions of the Westboro Baptist Church yesterday morning. Cream contributor Seth Graves was on hand to film Jazz as he serenaded the Kansas hate-mongers with radical luv, the footage of which is being edited as we speak.
Since some of you are on the edge your seats awaiting the visual documentation and word of how this heavily anticipated bout transpired, I'm posting some pictures of the culture clash to tide you over. You can see more on Armed Forces’ Facebook page. In a press release issued this morning, Mr. Jazz had the following to say about his morning among the WBC:
There is positively 100% NO WAY those people believe all that crap...if you get close enough to see through the shades &into their evil eyes, you can sense it … The whole charade is certainly just a plot to evade taxes and make money by provoking decant people to the point of violence. They even have undercover fake-cops on the scene harassing counter-protestors and encouraging people to defy peace-keeping officers by crossing designated protest lines or attacking WBC members. And if you do, they sue the hell outta you. They aren't homophobes, they're professional con artists.
More details to come …
