Video: Westboro Baptist Church at Mason

Although my Canon PowerShot A400 wasn’t designed with high-end video in mind, even low-end technology can capture just the right moment.

This is a capture of George Mason University students and local community members alike holding counter-protest signs and cheering at beeps and honks from passing cars.

About two minutes after this video was taken, a large truck lumbered into the intersection and gave the counter-protesters an ear-splitting hello. This made the counter-protesters cheer only louder.

The 6 Westboro Baptist Church members were approximately twenty feet ahead of where this video was taken.
