Skip to comments.Westboro Baptist Church Leader Fred Phelps a Democrat
Posted on 03/19/2014 12:58:04 PM PDT by celmak
The founder of Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps, notorious for leading hateful protests against gay rights, is actually a Democrat with long history of endorsing Democratic candidates.
On Tuesday, Politico provided some background on Phelps' political history, most of which saw him endorsing Democrat candidates and running for office a number of times as a Democrat. In the 1990's, Phelps ran in three Kansas Democratic primaries for Governor in 1990, 1994, and 1998, receiving only 15% of the vote. He also ran for Senator in 1992, receiving 31% of the vote, and for mayor of Topeka in 1993 and 1997.
Phelp's endorsed Al Gore for the 1988 Presidential candidacy due to his opposition to a "gay bill of rights" and comments that homosexuality wasn't something "society should affirm." Phelps and his congregation later picketed the 1997 inaugural ceremony after he switched his opinions on gay rights. He also endorsed Bill Clinton in 1992.
In 1997, Phelps wrote a letter to Saddam Hussein, praising him for being "the only Muslim state that allows the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to be freely and openly preached on the streets." Hussein then granted Phelps permission to send a delegation to "preach the Gospel" for one week. Church congregates then traveled to Iraq where they protested the U.S. by standing on the streets of Baghdad holding signs condemning Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Phelps has also led protests against the funerals of Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater, and William Rehnquist.

This just in. . . .
One article had members of the lavender mafia saying that they may owe him a debt of gratitude for demonizing the opposition to the norming of homosexuality.
As an activist Democrat he tainted the “resistance” and Christianity.
His family cult did their devilish deed very well.
Is he dead yet? That’s all I want to know.
Something we all knew.
that’ll leave a mark.....and also never be heard on the lamestream news.
Liek this is new news?
Phelps is one of the old line horrible Dems in the same vein as Al Gore Sr. and David Duke.
The new dems are just as racists, but they hide behind liberalism, but they are all hard line Margret Sanger types who hide it well tot he un suspecting dupes they call “Useful Voter idiots”
Top of breaking!
Of course he is.
Immoral, sleazy, two-faced, and repulsive.
Could’a been the Hillabeast’s bro.
Of the Obamadork’s...had he been a bit more stupid and born in Kenya...er...Hawaiistan.
It is all very likely a deal between Phelps, the DNC, the Gay Lobby, Hollywood and the media to portray Pro Family Christians crazy thereby pulling people away from their Anti Gay Rights stances to a stance where they actually support gay marriage.
Their conspiracy has been somewhat successful as the gay agenda has been advanced over the last couple of years.
Being that much of the advancement of gay rights has been accomplished via the fraud of this conspiracy, the players may be guilty of racketeering and RICO violations.
If so, recent legislation and court decisions favoring Gay Marriage should be repealed.
Another future dead voter.
“Paging Captain Obvious, Captain Obvious to the white courtesy phone...”
Actually, I kinda thought Phelps (and his ilk/family) were apolitical, he hates everyone...Which kinda makes him more of a venereal disease that never really goes away...
But if he votes for democrats, then that still fits him to a “T”...
Just my opinion...
Fred Phelps and the Westboro bunch are nut-cases.
Maybe Fred was molested as a child or something.
Dictionary defines bigot as "1. a person who holds blindly and intolerantly to a particular creed, opinion, etc," and "2. a narrow minded, prejudiced person."
Think about it.
Well when you think about it... Democrats LOVE muslims. And muslims hate gays and hate our military so....
Muslims hate any liberties for women, they think gays should be executed publicly. So since democrats love muslims and everything islam then it only makes sense that Phelps, who hates gays and hates our military, is democrat scum.
evidently he was molesting himself the other day and that’s what got him kicked out
15 minutes could save you 15%..
Wherever one finds hatred, there will be a Democrat close by.
Wow! This is too funny.
I am sure it will be all over MSM.
Please show me where you have seen this before - besides on a conservative site.
A false pastor, whose hate filled tirades against the military, going to military funerals and shouting his hate will only get him a warm place in hell if he does not repent.
Phelps is a hate-filled democrat (like many liberals and progressives these days).
Well pardon me for not being part of your upper crust! Please show me where you found this information? Did you see it or share it here at Free Republic? Have you seen it in any sites that were not conservative?
It was her on FR when Phelps first started protesting GI funnerals during the
Maybe so, but I have not seen it post of late, and it bears repeating. As you can see, many of the post here are surprised to see this information.
Check out http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1346885/posts expecially its reply #5.
And his is a church in the same way that Jeremiah Wright’s was. Thanks celmak.
WHO the HELL didn’t KNOW that?????
I want to know if he was paid by democrats...
I want to know if he was paid by democrats...
I grew up in a "Democrat" family and we switched to Repuublican thanks to "King Franklin the First" winning his fourth term.
I see the bigot definition now applying primarily to religious bigots ... because I was once one ... big time ... and I made up for it, thankfully, in time - in later years.
It is hard for me to separate bigot from the Democrats who KNOW that humans are causing Global Cooling (1970’s), Global Warming, Climate Change or SOMETHING that means I need to pay more taxes!
It is hard for me to separate bigot from the Democrats who see EVERYTHING that Obama is doing to the American dream, economy, military, etc..., yet they support him 200%!
It is hard for me to separate bigot from the Democrats who are quick to bash Christians on every chance they get.
There absolutely are religious bigots, but they do that with at least something that supports their faiths (the Bible); however, Democrats latch onto whatever makes them “feel” good, usually without ANYTHING to support their delusional grasp. To me, THAT is a bigot - someone with no rationale for their beliefs.
Obviously quite a number of people - AND IT BEARS REPEATING !!!
But like I stated - it bears repeating - that he is a Democrat because, as you can see from some of these post, not enough people know. Please pass me more info so I can repeat it again, Ten to one, a new lurker will be enlightened.
Whats wrong with protesting gay rights and Bill and hillary Clinton?
The guy’s a bully - haven’t we always known he was a democrat?
Wouldn’t surprise me if democrats were paying him... the press was always there to cover him. That’s a sign dems thought he could be used to hurt us. Now that it’s known he’s a democrat the press will forget he ever existed.
I have always felt that he was the caricature of a religious right nut that could only be cooked up by the deranged mind of a leftist.
I think the whole Westboro Baptist Church thing was a persona he adopted strictly as a way to discredit Christian Conservatives.
