Punk bands used to take on authority. Governments, monarchies, the military. I guess the new thing is to challenge low hanging fruit whackjobs. The Westboro Baptist church is that group of despicable crazies that hate the gays and disrupt sacred events such as the burials of deceased U.S. servicemen to make some kind of idiotic point. Because they are shameless primitive hillbilly freaks, they get lots of attention and don’t honestly give a shit who calls them out. The punk band Gets Hot Girls decided to stick it to the Westboro Church by having their bass player Laura Lush (get it?), finger bang herself for a quick minute on the front lawn of the Topeka, Kansas church.
“The Phelps family and Westboro Baptist Church are ridiculous and do nothing except spread hate and cause controversy. As a bisexual woman and the bass player of a ridiculous punk band, I wanted to spread my legs and cause controversy.” – Laura Lush, on the Get Shot! Facebook page.
Do you see how Laura as a bisexual bass player had no choice. I mean, yeah, she could have fisted herself while busting down a barrier in D.C. at the risk of getting shot. Or she could go to Yemen and scissor kiss a chick in a burqa during prayer hour and face a beheading. Instead she ran onto an abandoned lawn of the ramshackle church, touched her stank, and then ran away before she got caught.
Completely disregarding Westboro’s surveillance cameras, armed security and the state’s strict obscenity laws, Get Shot! successfully avoided arrest or confrontation.
Wow, you’re so punk. Which wildly unpopular and totally unsupported group are you going to take a valiant stand against next? Child molesters? The Jacksonville Jaguars?
Here’s the fingering video (NSFW) since that’s all you really wanted to see.
