Punk Band Film Porn on Westboro Baptist Church's Front Yard

The band Get Shot filmed the action with bassist Laura Lush in broad daylight, but the 'God Hates Fags' group have since installed a security system so it won't happen again.

A punk band have found the perfect way to strike back at the unpleasant Westboro Baptist Church - by shooting a porn film on their front yard. According to Spin (via NME) the punk group Get Shot, who call themselves "the sleaziest punk band in the world" and run their own porn site Get Shot Girls, managed to film their bassist Laura Lush masturbating in their garden. "The Phelps family and Westboro Baptist Church are ridiculous and do nothing except spread hate and cause controversy," said Lush. "As a bisexual woman and the bass player of a ridiculous punk band, I wanted to spread my legs and cause controversy." The band hope to return with more girls, but mother of the family Margie Phelps says they've installed a new security system to ward off any sexual sinners:

@slsf617 Westboro is at full alert. @brotimtlm is installing cam's all along the perimeter of our compound. cc:@GETSHOTGIRLS .

Get Shot have since been signed by Monarchy Distribution, according to a new Facebook update.

    This made my day. Just... wow, this is so awesome

    I dunno...I'd prefer WBC not being mentioned in ANY context. (except maybe some headlines that GOD reached down and swatted the whole lot of them into non-existence)
    DickHardwood
    Oh come on, these dirtbags will find their way to the headlines one way or the other. The video was pretty cool, plus that Laura chick's hot. That's why lady bassists are always my favorite.
    begyvolodimir
    cant imagine what kind of loser you are, lol
    DickHardwood
    What? I love porn, I'm into punk and I hate WBC. This was fun, and you guys are waaaaay too serious.
    JelloCrust
    First off, Get Shot are not a punk band, they are a sexist shock band, who use punk sound. Secondly, this does nothing to combat the WBC. Thirdly, the band, Get Shot, does about as much damage to womens' rights as the WBC does. Porn can be okay, but for the vast majority it is extremely problematic. This was a terrible publicity stunt, that does not represent what punk stands for, and nothing more.
    DickHardwood
    Their bass player deliberately did this on her own. And she's quite proud of it. They used porn as a medium for protest which is an upgrade from fap material if you ask me. They protected the woman's right to masturbate on the front lawn of a bigoted prick, I'm game for that.
    JelloCrust
    The problem is Get Shot's overall history of treatment of women, and furthermore, women can actively subjugate themselves and their gender as well, e.g. Maggie Phelps.
    Kylianvb
    But porn can be okay you said, and as far as I've seen this was a girl having quite a bit of fun over there, no breach of womens' rights here, bud.

    Wait a minute, since when does Punk not stand for doing crazy shit to piss people off for shock value? I feel like this stunt is exactly what punk is all about, sticking it to the man. And why did you even bring up women's rights? That doesn't really have much to do with the discussion.
    TheExterminator
    "since when does Punk not stand for doing crazy shit to piss people off for shock value?" Well, since the Punk movement started as little more than an attempt to bring Rock music back to its rebellious roots, because people felt that bands like Deep Purple were adding needless fluff to the music, and Rock Stars were becoming far too Diva-like to be considered rebels. The whole political aspect didn't come about until Hardcore Punk. Even then, only the posers really thought it was purely about "sticking it to the man", and they're the type of punks who are usually too drunk to do anything political. The political aspect of Punk was more of a reaction to Reaganism and Thatcherism rather than a general sense of "the man". They weren't hippies, after all. I mean, Jello Baifra is/was part of the Green Party.

    If they "use punk sound" then they are a punk band weather or not you like it. Even if there music is trash they still qualify. Nickelback sucks but they still qualify as a rock band
    Vypor
    @JelloCrust - Not a punk band? We have punk elitism now? Really? What is it exactly that keeps them from being a part of the punk genre? I'm guessing "sexist shock group" is the only genre Steel Panther would fall under aswell? Porn is vastly problematic for whom exactly? Finally, please explain exactly what punk stands for, according to you.
    ne14t
    Hypocritical is what it is, whines about women not getting treated fairly, treats punk band with women in it like shit. Can't even be bothered to waste my time reading anything someone like that posts.
    Icky101
    Haha I agree. Notice how his name is dick hardwood, just sort of assures he's some lonely guy that just sits on his computer all day jacking off.
    DickHardwood
    When did everyone here lose their sense of humor? Sure, dismiss the guy doing dick jokes as a lone masturbater, go defend the rights of women through your avatars on a forum about guitar playing. We make a difference here, man.
    dudester410
    the internets become this scum driven place of super serious, know-it-alls who shove their dicks right into your face without even thinking twice about it. I know what youre saying man
    Mr Winters
    I'd like to see them mentioned in the context of all of them dying and disappearing forever.
    plindqui
    Exactly right. They want people to lash back at them to create more controversy and so that they can play the victim rather than the aggressor for a change. Best thing to do when these guys start making a fuss is to just not respond
    JelloCrust
    Are you saying you want the Kevin Smith movie, Red State, to be a reality?
    Iommianity
    Wouldn't that require someone to have actually seen the Kevin Smith movie, Red State?
    Reevo
    Hahah this is truly amazing! "I wanted to spread my legs and cause controversy" Thats a slogan of a lifetime right there!
    JHalson
    Someone makes porn in their back garden, their response is to put up cameras. The right bloody pervs.
    Raedwald
    Well this is the best news story I've seen in a very long time. I don't think I've ever felt so proud to be a bassist!
    sideslick
    They missed the best part, when the band tweeted that they caught the WBC's IP-adress looking at the video for 41 minutes, which is MUCH longer than the video itself.
    eddiehimself
    Fucking awesome. No doubt WBC are just going to sue them for trespassing or some shit like that though. That's how they make their money.
    daken_1
    Sorry about the accidental downvote, but I agree, this is one of the most punk things I've ever seen haha
    bit64
    if someone wanted to film more videos with sexy girls in my garden...hell yeah i would install lots of cams!In case i miss anything!
    Wrathchild68
    Absolutely brilliant. Only problem is I can't the video on their website
    EyesWideOpen
    To anyone wanting to see the video that can't access it from the link, go on the xvideos website and just search Westboro. It'll be the first vid to come up. Have fun
    iommi600
    While I think this is amazing and I approve the action of shocking the WBC ****s and clashing with the existing order, I also think they could have picked another church. It's been proven for quite some time now that the WBC are nothing but charlatans that scav off the courts for money. I wouldn't even take them as a representation of conservatism, they're just trolls. Still, nice act.
    Nero Galon
    Nice to see a positive representation of porn considering all the bad news its been receiving.
    Life Wasted
    I live in the same town as the wbbc...why couldn't I have driven bye when this was happening...I would have stoped
    shwilly
    They should've gone all the way with a biblical-themed shoot. Like Adam & Eve going at it or Mary Magdalene's slutty adventures
    SOAD94
    Hmmm, some people will do anything to get famous. I still don't get how only 40 people manage to piss off an entire nation. There's 1000s of Neo-Nazis today for crying out loud. Then again, I don't live in America.
    Eirien
    I agree. Probably best to ignore WBC rather than giving them the attention they sorely crave (and writing biased as **** "news" articles about them). Neo-nazis are a much more serious problem.
    JelloCrust
    Agreed, but that noe-nazi statistic is more like a hundreds of thousands, maybe close to a million.

    If a woman wants to masturbate in public, thats her choice. Just like if the WBC wants to bitch and whine about everything thats their choice and their right as well.I don't see how either one of these immature groups of people are contributing anything positive to the advancement of society. However if I take my brain out of the context, which is something you need to do to wrap your head around a girl masturbating on a religious group's lawn then you'd realize its all just stupidity anyway.If watching women masturbate on church lawns gets you off, then I can't judge you on it I guess.Just know, this whole thing is idiotic and deserves about as much of your thought and attention as watching two monkeys flinging shit at eachother.C'mon people, we're better then this, as "intelligent" human beings. The band's moniker on their website is "naked girls and rock and roll... because we can't sell cocaine." Now I am all for free speech, but whats the difference between the WBC poisoning society with their aggressive bullshit and bands like this doing the same thing by leading anyone who'll pay attention down a moral sewer? Their music and who image is uninspired, plain and lacking in every department other then sleaze. So I don't really see the difference between the two personally, they're both not doing anything to make the world a better place. Each one is its own special brand of ignorance. How ironic.
    Vypor
    I for one, find the image of a sexy woman masturbating on a bigots front lawn quite arousing, and politically motivating. Getting bigot religious views shoved down my throat? That makes me somewhat angry I suppose. But overall, I find the image of monkeys flinging feces at one another rather amusing, and well worth my time. What was your point again?
    GenerationKILL
    My point is ignorance begets ignorance and therefore nobody involved comes out further ahead from the other. Its a philosophical thing. Since you find monkeys flinging shit at each other crucial to your life, I doubt you can grasp such deep ideologies.
    morbidguitar
    and how old are you? If you havent hit puberty yet, your statement has no relevance.
    GenerationKILL
    Is this directed at me? I can put money on the fact that I am probably older then you and most of the other kids on here who think spending time and effort on "pissing off religion" is a great use of their time, and therefore all have 2 cents to say about this. My point was ignorance begets more ignorance and its better to leave the whole entire thing alone. Some of us have learned to ignore bullshit a long time ago. This sort of thing that the "punk band" "Get Shot" did isn't a statement about anything, its a PR stunt for a band thats backed by a PORN company.
    GeekInThePink
    I don't like the WBC but treating hateful people with hate is not right.
    rebreh
    I don't know what it accomplishes either. In a way, it may strengthen their beliefs. I imagine the WBC believes that American social values are deteriorating before there eyes. They are obviously using gay people as a scapegoat but there is some truth to this. Read "Bowling Alone" which documents the breakdown of various social institutions and the mass alienation affecting most Americans to see that this is a serious problem. Now imagine you believe that America's morals in decline and suddenly a person is jerking off on your lawn. Doesn't this prove your original belief?
    Iommianity
    The one thing I never got about the WBC is the notion that telling them specifically to go **** themselves, or worse, flat out assaulting them, is fueling their cause, or making them martyrs. Sure, maybe if they were a real organization or church, instead of a close knit psycho family with a few stragglers who married in I'd buy that argument. They are literally only a couple of minivan pileups away from being completely wiped out. Clearly ignoring them isn't working, and I don't think they're exactly recruiting members by the dozens.
    ytrappin
    you bros are late to report this one. i wonder if the band bangs the bassist
    JOHNSTONE6
    Evan: You could always subscribe to a site like Perfect Ten. I mean that could be anything, it could be a bowling site. Seth: Yeah, but it doesn't actually show dick going in which is a huge concern. Evan: Right, I didn't realize that. Seth: Besides, have you ever seen a vagina by itself? Evan: No. Seth: [shakes his head] Not for me.
    zalant
    Does anyone else find it really creepy that WBC themselves refer to their place as a "compound"?
    Ravendeth
    Hilarious. That is so punk lol. Take it easy, guys, WBC is going to show up in media NO MATTER WHAT, probably from picketing another soldier's funeral or something classy like that. So it's nice to see them in the media for something like this, because we can all snicker and laugh about it. They don't want our laughter, they want to piss us off. So this is a nice change xD
    begyvolodimir
    this filth pig ***** sucks even more than wbc
    l0ld4v3
    Do you have an issue with female sexuality and/or physical appearance?
    JelloCrust
    It think the problem is that she is part of a group that exploits women. Get Shot exploits women, pure and simple.
    Dr. Knox666
    WTF! Couldn't see any exploitation in this video. All I could see was a cute girl masturbating in public and having ****ing fun while doing it, so what's the problem?
    rebreh
    Follow up question: when did free speech in a public square become synonymous with masturbating on someone's property?
    rebreh
    I guess I'll be the one to take the high ground. What the band did was wrong. Wrong you ask? But what about WBC? I personally think they are abhorrent but comically marginal. Has anyone researched the group? It is literally composed of 30 people. Yes, 30. This isn't some major movement they are just media savvy. But I digress. You have a right to protest in a public square but you do not have a right to protest on someone's property. You can go onto a sidewalk and say whatever you want but you CAN'T go step on someone's porch and yell at them.
    Dregen
    yeah, porn is so vile and disgusting. and look at those dogs humping, since when were values so disregarded?
