The first time he went to celebrate with them, the second time he went to protest because Gore and Clinton's views on gay rights had changed from what they held originally. For decades, Phelps helped to get Democrats elected not just by his involvement in national campaigns but has a very long history of working to get local politicians elected until he became "controversial" over gay rights, and protesting soldiers funerals. Then no Democrat politician wanted him near them.

    The real hypocrisy lies in how the left leaning news is covering his death. Every left rag on the Internet, Nation, Huffo Puffo, the Beast, Daily Kos etc. to the MSM,( ABC, NBC, CBS,) NEVER mention Phelp's long ties to the Democrat party but instead refer to him as a "conservative" because of the church he started which is mainly made up of his own family members and has no affiliation with any Baptist organizations. NOT ONE has brought up his history as an activist for the Democrat party for decades.
    He was a Christian, don't forget that! Ooh, and look! I'm "very conservative" now!

    Oh come on Cardinal, look at some of these comments and how people in this forum tie him to being a right winger when everything about his history says he was a man of collectivist thought and always strong on Democrat issues. It was gay rights that he was very outspoken on but still remained a registered Democrat. To have the media use "conservative" to describe him is a blatant lie. Especially when the base of the Republican party stands for conservative thought which takes in a whole lot more than social conservatives.

    That's because all feelings are focused on me.

    The first mention of Phelps being right wing or conservative happened after you poured gasoline on this thread and threw a match on it in order to score the cheapest point imaginable. This one's on you.

    Re: Fred Phelps Dead

    Despite the fact that Phelps was a bigot and homophobe of the highest order, I find it hard to celebrate the death of another human being. It would be different if he had been a murderer or rapist or child molestor (like Warren Jeffs).
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
