A hate group called the “Westboro Baptist Church” protested outside of the school that President Obama’s two daughters, Sasha and Malia, attend on Monday morning, the Huffington Post reports.
Carrying anti-gay, anti-abortion, and anti-Obama signs, the group, largely composed of leader Fred Phelps’ immediate family, marched outside of the Sidwell Friends School, slowing down traffic.
Along with various schools, the group, which refers to the Obama children as “satanic spawn” on its website, also plans to demonstrate outside of the White House, the World War II memorial, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission field office. (Huffington Post)
