I Never Thought I’d Say This, But These Frat Boys Are My Heroes

This video of a Chicago fraternity “welcoming” the evil Westboro Baptist “god hates fags” protesters to their college earlier this week with a song, dance, and “no tolerance for intolerance” banner is basically the most heartwarming fucking thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life:

This YouTube commenter basically said it:

Sure, their dance was a little over the top and stereotype-enforcing, but the banner makes their intentions clear. (And they’re frat boys. This is huge progress.) You know how Keith Olbermann has Worst Person In The World? This week, the dudes of the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity at the University Of Chicago are the Best People In The World. How many folks need to surprise themselves by responding to the Westboro Baptist hate mongers with a new passion for gay rights before Fred Phelps shuts it down? Westboro Baptist is the ultimate lesson in accidental satire. These are amazing times we’re living in right now. Unbelievable.
