“Counter-party” against the Westboro Baptist Church took place yesterday (Monday, March 11) in Richmond, Virginia.
Blythe shared his plans on Instagram for a counter-party rather than a counter-protest, explaining that he was “not interested in arguing with these morons, getting upset” or “yelling at them.” Instead, what he wanted to do is have “a good time at their expense.”
Randy posted a call to action asking Richmonders to join him and play kazoos to drown out the group. He was also offering a $100 cash prize to the counter-partier with the best costume.

Watch the FULL VIDEO here on my IGTV. Tomorrow, 9 AM, 1000 Bank St, Richmond VA. $200 cash prize for best costume! We will have at least 200 kazoos to give out & various other melodious party-enhancing devices. Get there by 8:45 AM at the latest! My friend @dargott (director of the “As the Palaces Burn” documentary) is sending out a small film crew to document this EPICNESS. Remember, not matter what kind of offensive things they say- DO NOT ARGUE OR ENGAGE IN ANY WAY with the buffoons of the #westborobaptistchurch- that’s what they want. We’ll just drown them out instead. What if they don’t show? I don’t cancel parties because unwanted jerks don’t show up- there will still be a #kazoo #champagnejam & CASH MONEY for best costume. See y’all there! #kazoo #counterparty #westborobaptistchurch #beatitkooks
