That's some fine quality "Fair and Balanced" (yeah yeah, it's Fox Nation, not Fox News but really...same difference) journalism right there, folks.


actually its just a summary of the article from thegatewaypundit, which does label westboro as left-wing.

Which is just a response to a minor Canadian newspaper which labeled them as a right-wing hate group. Scroll down to the comments for outrage from mouth-breathing real 'muricans.

Proteios1: WBC is a perfect caricature of how Christianity is perceived by the political left, although I doubt they are actors sent in by the left to embarrass Christians. Embarrassing themselves is something the left does just fine on their own.


That's an amusing take. The truth is that they aren't really that far outside the christian conservative mainstream.

They're a family of people severely abused by Fred Phelps. Everyone who's in that church is in the same family. I think cult is the right word, although I wouldn't pin their kind of crazy on anyone but themselves. They aren't 'left' or 'right'. They're just totally batshiat insane.

randomjsa: A lot of people here seem to assume that homophobia is a "right" wing thing. Not the first time I've seen that of course and it's often lumped in their with sexism or racism being "right" wing things.

Those are problems humans have and no matter how much you'd like to cry and scream to the contrary, they are neither left, nor right.

Phelps if I recall is a registered Democrat. I do not know if that is still true as I believe the DNC looked for a legal way to remove him but irregardless the WBC is despised universally by the left, right, and center. I'm not sure where anyone gets the idea that they are left wing from but then again it's plenty stupid to call them right wing as well.


He was a democrat in the 1980's and early 90's. But to say he is or was a democrat would be like saying Ronald Reagan Hallowed be his name-TM-GOP was a democrat and that Hillary is a republican. Link


This would be less of an issue except that Faux News has had a habit of labeling disgraced republicans as democrats. See Mark Sanford as an example. Link

Malicious Bastard: Democratic


In 1997 (before the fall of Saddam Hussein during the 2003 Iraq War) Phelps wrote a letter to Saddam praising his regime for being, in his opinion, "the only Muslim state that allows the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to be freely and openly preached on the streets."[38] Furthermore, he stated that he would like to send a delegation to Baghdad to "preach the Gospel" for one week. Saddam granted permission, and a group of WBC congregants traveled to Iraq to protest against the U.S. The WBC members stood on the streets of Baghdad holding signs condemning both Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as anal sex.[34] When Hussein died in December 2006, Phelps stated in a web broadcast that Saddam was in Hell along with Gerald Ford.

You gotta give him some credit for that one.

I like the Reagan republicans. They raise Taxes when necessary, work out immigration deals, cut deals to make sure Social Security stays solvent, and most importantly works across the aisle well with members of the opposite party.

/The Reagan myth is what really sucks about the tards in the GOP today


Hence many are independent now and not Republicans. The ideas that women can't get pregnant from rape, gays shouldn't enjoy equal rights and that protecting the tax rates of the 1% at the expense of our nation offends many on the right as much as the left. They are a lost demographic with no voice.

Yes, but Duke was elected to the Louisiana legislature as a Republican and won the state GOP nomination as gubernatorial candidate.

Nevertheless, as much as I disdain the Louisiana GOP, I am the first to admit -- hell, even insist -- that they are not personified in Duke. I've long ago learned the absurdity of such broad generations; Fox has not.
 
2012-12-25 06:45:42 PM  
This maybe a little extreme, but I think Anonymous should pay Fox News/Nation a visit. It is one thing to exercise free speech, but Fox has been spreading anti-gay Christianity for the right for a long time now, though not to the degree that that the WBC takes it to. They made their bed, they should be forced to sleep in it.

And yet they haven't supported any Republicans who oppose gay marriage since as far as I know.

If you look at the demographics from the last few elections you could argue that.  But we don't know whether or not some of the current liberal voters will hit a certain age and become more conservative.  And I've seen plenty of Reagan Youth out there who have been dutifully trained in all the talking points by mommy and daddy.  Unfortunately, many of them have keyboards and net access, and barring a fatal mugging at the hands of some Skittle-crazed minority youth, they'll probably be around for a while.

That said, they're not really affiliated with anyone. The Dems hate them because they're anti-gay, the GOP hates them because they do shiat like picket random (non-gay) soldiers' funerals and are overly litigious even by the most forgiving standards, and everyone else hates them because they're a 50/50 mix of AW and Troll.

In summary, everyone hates them. They have no real home anywhere on the political spectrum.

If you follow through the links, the original source is from a QMI/Sun Media paper, which is like Canada's equivalent to Fox News. Hell, if anything, they have been derpier than Fox over the last few years. AND EVEN THEY IDENTIFIED THE WBC AS RIGHT WING!

Then some dickless retarded hypocrite coward, who probably would be fantasizing of God killing liberals if the WBC didn't put theory into practice, decides to twist it all around by claiming the WBC are liberals and the bikers are conservative on his little echo-chamber blog that no one reads.

Unfortunately, Fox Nation picked up on it and decided to reprint it on their blog. Normally FN may get a pass because "they aren't Fox News," but I would not be surprised if over the next few days the organization gets called on this by the media and politicians alike. The right is beginning to wake up from the derpfest of the last few years, and Fox (if inadvertently) bringing the political spectrum into this may have conservatives rethinking their position on gay rights after the left rightfully deflects the WBC back to them.

I don't have enough information to even place the Westboro on the left-right axis. They fit in with the GOP types due to their religion-based prejudice, but the right-left axis is economics based.

The right accepts inequality as normal and positive, while the left sees it as something that needs to be repaired. To my knowledge the Westboro Baptist Church just hates the LGBT... and America for giving them human rights. That has nothing to with the left-right axis.

CorporatePerson: I always see that picture but never know where it's from.

wedun: I'm pretty sure this is a shop, I remember the feverish hours I spent looking for the source clip when I saw that pic the first time.

I don't know about the first one Hobodeluxe posted (the one in the same post where he typed "sounds lefty to me"), but I'm quite sure that the third one he posted two posts down (with no text) is a 'shop. The line of text about underage boys is in a font quite different from the second line ("COULD IT BE A GOOD THING?").

That first line's font appears to be an ordinary computer sans-serif font (even looks like Arial, perhaps expanded a bit) that would not be used on a broadcast quality character generator, especially in non-bolded form (the strokes are too thin, and the horizontal strokes would thus likely be only one scan-line thick and thus flicker / blink rapidly at any interlaced resolution, especially analog NTSC / SD 480i).
