A Pox on Both Your Houses

Here is one from the right message, wrong messenger file.  Sarah Anne Hughes has this post at the WaPo.

As President Obama honored fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery on Monday, three members of the Westboro Baptist Church protested the ceremony, holding signs that read "Pray for more dead soldiers" and "God hates your prayers," as the controversial group has become known to do. They were met by about 70 counterprotesters....

Dennis LaBonte, who told CNN he was a military veteran ..., said the approximately 10 members of the group came in "support of the troops." LaBonte ... said he "thinks that it's an absolute shame that [the WBC] show up and disrupt people's funerals."
All unremarkable, right?  The counterprotesters are completely correct, right?  So who is Dennis LeBonte?  I edited that part out.
"Dennis LaBonte, who told CNN he was a military veteran and the 'imperial wizard' of a KKK chapter...."

Now that's a distressing thought.  The KKK is actually right about something.
