  • People for the American Way Identifies Photo of Westboro Demonstrators as Tea Party Members

    The American Thinker Blog ^ | January 11, 2012 | Peter Wilson
    It won't shock AT readers to learn that the Left is deceitful, but here's another piece of evidence: a fundraising letter from Ralph Neas's People for the American Way (PAW) arrived in the mail today. The outside of the envelope and the letter inside display a large photo identified as "Demonstrators at Presidential Inauguration." The signs held by these "demonstrators" read: "God Hates Obama," "Fags Love Obama," and "Hell to the Chief." Anyone paying the slightest attention knows that signs with the word "fag" and "God hates..." most likely originate from the despicable Westboro Baptist Church, and sure enough, a...

    Just before gay marriage was legalised in Ireland, JK Rowling tweeted that she was hoping Gandalf and Dumbledore would be able to get married. Now that’s set to become a reality this weekend with LGBTQ rights activist group Planting Peace staging a wedding between the fictional wizards. The nuptials will take place in their rainbow-coloured headquarters opposite the Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas. The church threatened to picket the wedding if it ever happened....

    My parents taught me never to speak ill of the dead, but in the case of Fred Phelps, who died last week at the age of 84, I think they would have made an exception. The man, who will be referred to in this column without the modifier "reverend," because there was nothing reverent about him, defined the word "odious." He and some of his family members constituted the entire membership of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan. It was BINO, Baptist in name only. Phelps and some members of his family (though not all) picketed military funerals with...

    Civil rights leader Julian Bond Friday called North Carolina the new Mississippi because of its voter-ID law. "North Carolina has become the new Mississippi," Bond said on a program that will air Friday night on "Political Capital with Al Hunt'' on Bloomberg TV. "They've just taken an enormous step backward in voting rights and a series of things because of the domination of Republicans in the House and the Senate and in the governor's chair,'' said, who who is a former chairman of the national NAACP and a former Georgia legislator.

    SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal gave a stern warning to Westboro Baptist Church members who had reportedly threatened to protest the funerals of the Lafayette movie theater victims. “Let me be very clear, if they come here to Louisiana and they try to disrupt those funerals, we're going to lock them up,” said Jindal. The funerals for Mayci Breaux and Jillian Johnson were held on Monday. Before that, Jindal issued an executive order asking police to enforce a Louisiana State law that protects against disturbing the peace at funerals. But, it did not have to be enforced...

    The American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana is concerned Gov. Bobby Jindal may disregard the constitutional rights of the Westboro Baptist Church with his latest executive order. "Governor Jindal's Executive Order ... is misguided and has the potential to be used to infringe on protestors' First Amendment rights," said the ACLU in a statement Sunday morning. Jindal issued an order Saturday mostly aimed at keeping the Westboro Baptist Church -- and presumably the vulgar "God Hates Fags" signs they usually carry -- away from the funerals of two Lafayette movie theater shootings victims. "They come here to Louisiana. They try...

It’s been decades since the Klan held that sort of mainstream sway, but Sunday’s deadly rampage...

    In a 2010 interview, Alan Colmes talked with a KKK Grand Dragon, who would later become the Jewish Center shooter, as he was running for Senate in Missouri as a Republican–and the glimpse into the mind of this madman that the interview offers is simply horrifying. On Sunday, Frazier Glenn Miller, or Frazier Glenn Cross, murdered three people at two different Jewish centers in Overland Park, Kansas–including a man, woman, and child. He shot at two others, but they were uninjured. As he was arrested, the founder of the White Patriot Party screamed “Heil Hitler!” Frazier/Cross told Colmes, a Jewish...

    A smirking gunman who reportedly shouted Nazi slogans opened fire at a Jewish community center and an old-age home in a suburb of Kansas City, killing three people. The gunman, said to be an older man, singled out Jewish victims for death, Rabbi Herbert Mandl, a chaplain with the Overland Park Police Department, told CNN. “Asking someone if you are Jewish before shooting sounds very much like a hate crime,” Mandl said. Police said two people were killed at the JCC of Greater Kansas City, where children were auditioning for a musical. Despite Mandl’s assertion, the JCC victims were identified...
