Fox News says Fred Phelps’ “God Hates F*gs” hate group is “left wing”

When’s the last time you met a gay-hating, Obama-hating (they think he’s literally the anti-Christ), Muslim-hating, Catholic-hating (conservative Baptists think Catholics worship Satan) evangelical Baptist church that was full of Democrats? Oh yeah, they also really really don’t like Jews. Well, if you believe Fox News (your first mistake), Fred Phelps’ Westboro Baptist Church is really a bunch of liberals. Albeit, liberals who hate gays, Obama, Muslims, Jews and have the same view of Catholics as the Republican-loving religious right.

Other than that, very liberal.

This story is a perfect example of why Fox News is not a “news” network, but rather, is little more than a propaganda arm of the Republican party. And the far right wing of the GOP, at that.

2. Phelps and his whelps claim to be Democrats...

Phelps has run in various Kansas Democratic Party primaries five times, but has never won. These included races for governor in 1990, 1994, and 1998, receiving about 15 percent of the vote in 1998. In the 1992 Democratic Party primary for U.S. Senate, Phelps received 31 percent of the vote. Phelps ran for mayor of Topeka in 1993 and 1997.

4. David Duke and Lyndon LaRouche have claimed to be Democrats...

at various times in their careers. There was also a LaRouche guy in1986 who managed to get himself on the ballot as the Democratic Lt. Governor nominee. Adlai Stevenson III, who was the nominee for governor, refused to appear on the ballot with him and (predictably) lost the election.

3. Phelps was Passionate in fighting for Civil Rights (Women & Racial Minorities)

 

Still baffles me how much of a Righty he is on everything else.
Goes to show you being Left and Right isnt Black and White.

5. I guess it's true how they say that

everyone is a mix of different ideologies even though some of us identify with one side of the spectrum.
