Hate 2.0 pioneers the Westboro Baptist Church, originators of the “God Hates [X]” meme, are headed to San Francisco on Thursday and Friday for one of their whirlwind protest tours. Among the stops on their picket schedule, Thursday from 4:30 to 5:00 pm: Twitter’s headquarters. Usually this is where we would tell you why a notorious hate group would protest Twitter. But rather than direct you toward their NSFW website, here’s a rough Hatese-to-English translation: “We are protesting at Twitters HQ to spread our core message: Crazytime 99 hate balloons unicorn puncher.”

In 2008, a Westboro protest in San Francisco was met by a few counter protesters and a couple merry pranksters (resulting in the photo above, featuring our very own guest blogger Burstein!). As a public service for those who might wish to give an absurdist San Francisco welcome to WBC this time round without visiting their NSFW picket schedule, it is transcribed below.
