Margie J. Phelps scrubs anti-gay, forged tweet about dead soldier


I'd like to share this tweet by someone who calls herself MargieJPhelps on Twitter (It looks as though she deleted the tweet, so I am sharing a screen grab of my retweet):

RT is an abbreviation for "retweet", or essentially a copy and paste of an original tweet. So she's claiming her RT is a copy of my original tweet. It wasn't. She clearly changed the wording drastically and attributed the revision to me.

She left this one up:

Tim, by the way, is gay.

My original tweet read, VIDEO: Gay soldier’s “sexual orientation was the least interesting thing about him” plus a link to the post.

Margie (if indeed it is the actual Margie J. Phelps, and I suspect it is) is the despicable daughter and  lead counsel of despicable disbarred lawyer and pastor of Westboro Babtist "Church", Fred Phelps. You might remember that group from vile events like this:

westboro baptist church signs gays obama

Apparently, those associated with this "Christian" organization feel it's okay to forge tweets and use bigotry and slurs to win people over to their way of thinking.

I posted a number of tweets saying that very thing to her, so I suppose she felt obligated to scrub her forgery (before she could get kicked off Twitter) of my original tweet about Andrew, who was killed in Afghanistan only six weeks ago. His parents, Jeff and Lori Wilfahrt, were on the Tim Corrimal show with me today.

Exposure of this kind of slime is one way to make even a minimal difference. The deletion was only a tiny victory, but at least it was something.

Afterthought: She doesn't appear to have exactly honed her lawyer (or Christian) skills.
