(KTAR Phoenix)   Vice mayor of a small town in Arizona makes a pro-Fred Phelps post on Facebook. `We need more Fred Phelps in this world. May you rest in peace sir.'' How many times must the cannon balls fly, before Arizona gets its own Fark tag?   (ktar.com) divider line 79

No, wait, it's okay, guys. He just didn't know who Fred Phelps was. Despite the eight gazillion articles about how evil "Reverend" Phelps was.

He must have been too busy defending Arpaio to read all of that crap, or something.

Farrell also says he didn't realize the obituary he posted on was a fake article and he shamed himself.

So he's ashamed he posted his honest opinion of a man on a fake article? Why? Stand by your opinion, vice mayor.
 
2014-03-27 09:08:17 AM
I didn't know who he was, I just have a habit of randomly saying that when any pastor anywhere in the nation dies.  Keep me busy, sorta like a hobby, ya know?
 
2014-03-27 09:13:32 AM
Huh. How's this guy polling in Iowa and New Hampshire?
 
2014-03-27 09:17:29 AM
He must like swimmers.

Maybe not Arizona, maybe just Maricopa county

If you were to make a Venn diagram of people that are bigots and people that are cowards about expressing their bigotry, you'd pretty much get a circle.

Maybe he was talking about Phelps Fred, instead of Fred Phelps. It's easy to get the two confused. They have similar names.
 
2014-03-27 09:18:57 AM
The greater issue is the Arizona Fark tag. It seems richly deserved.

Arizona tag has to wait until FARK approves one for...

We need more Fred Phelps in this world.

We already have plenty, they're just not as successful.

Most people in Topeka would have been happy to send ol'Freddy packing to Arizona.

Where was this guy last year, or the year before, etc, etc.

Old people can troll, too. Good job, vice mayor.

That's ridiculous! He was obviously thinking of famed pastor, and lover of homosexuals, Fred Schmelps.
 
2014-03-27 09:26:03 AM
I'm sure he just confused him for Michael Phelps, especially since Arizona has a lack of people who can swim after passing that anti-immigration law.
 
2014-03-27 09:26:18 AM
Bah, the city of Maricopa isn't even in Maricopa county. It's about a 40 minute drive through the desert south of Tempe. Small town with small minded people.

Yet another dumbass who doesn't know that The Onion is a satire site:

http://www.theonion.com/articles/fred-phelps-man-who-forever-stopped -m arch-of-gay-r,35582/

Also, this means that he honestly believes that gay people basically don't have rights in this country, despite all the hue and cry over gay marriage being legalized in ... what is it up to, 8 states now?
 
2014-03-27 09:28:52 AM
No. You are not special. You do not get a state tag. If you did, every other idiot from every other idiot state (there are 50 of them) will cry until they get theirs. Florida should be the only one, because it is special. Your state is not.

I thought there was absolutely no one out there who liked him because he pissed off everyone on the political spectrum by being homophobic and protesting at funerals.

Well, I guess everyone has a fan.

Facetious_Speciest: We need more Fred Phelps in this world.

Unless he meant, "we need more ugly trolls who are so outrageous that they help bury their own causes." In which case, yes, I hope we get more Fred Phelpses in this world.

//I suppose the Republican Party is trying as hard as they can.
 
2014-03-27 09:30:39 AM
Ya know, I believe the guy. What's more telling is that he'd claim we "need more people like" some random pastor in Kansas that he's never heard of. I guess you stick "reverend" in front of somebody's name and that automatically makes them great.

What I'm trying to say is... we need no one like Fred Phelps, and quite a few fewer people like vice Mayor Ed Farrell.

Phelps would have fit right in in Arizona.

As Fred Phelps was to Christianity, so Sheriff Joe Arpaio is to law enforcement

True, but if we followed that, then Fark would be a ghost town.

He meant Fred Phillips, but has a ffpeech impedimun.  Fred Phillips was a great guy and will be sorely missed.  Probably.

Vice mayor of Maricopa, Arizona.  Population: potato.

I didn't know that Maricopa was big enough to rate a mayor, let alone a second in command.

Mostly for its psychotically weird and self-destructive economics and politics.

So, we propagating the rantings of some Mayor's backup in some pudunk town full of tumbleweeds? THIS is national news?

As Vice Mayor, does he get a free hookup with Clownface Brit-Titts in the preceding thread? Does he host the weekly poker night at city hall? Free grass and blow? Bunco. I just want to say bunco.
 
2014-03-27 09:41:53 AM
We do need more Fred Phelps' in the world.

And by that, I mean more dead fundies.

God spoke to me and said he called Fred home because he refused to live the true gospel. Hopefully his followers will begin offing themselves out of guilt any day now.

No, and I think it's a pity there isn't a hell for him to go to... The empty life of this ugly little charlatan proves only one thing: that you can get away with the most extraordinary offenses to morality and to truth in this country if you'll just get yourself called Reverend. -Hitchens

Let me fix that for ya


No, wait, it's okay, guys. He just didn't know who Fred Phelps was the U.S. had 57 states. Despite the eight gazillion articles maps about how evil "Reverend" Phelps was  all 57 are united as one.

He must have been too busy defending Arpaio Reverend Wright to read all of that crap, or something.
 
2014-03-27 09:44:32 AM
I'm just impressed that Maricops has internet. Sounds like they've made some recent infrastructure improvements. Good for them.
 
2014-03-27 09:45:19 AM
Wait, I thought it was an obituary for Fred Phillips who was a really nice guy and all and not at all associated with this other guy whose name was so familiar that I really don't know anything about.

Note to the Vice Mayor -- stick to fixing parking tickets and you'll do just fine.

This was a horrible effort, even by FARK standards.
 
2014-03-27 09:47:27 AM
Subs, if we get an Arizona tag, then the Florida one needs to be retired. The tag system doesn't work if everywhere has one.

You may now present your argument as to why the conservative craziness of Arizona trumps the... general "WTF is in the water"ness of Florida.

Not everyone follows that sort of thing.  Just a quick poll of the 4 people that sit close to me in the office resulted in a 50% "Who is that?" result.  And the folks I work with are fairly intelligent.  They just don't give a rat's ass about people like Fred Phelps or the WBC.  They knew who WBC was, and about the picketing of funerals (my job is somewhat related to the U.S. military), but they had no idea Fed Phelps was the founder/ former leader of the WBC.

Not only a bigot, but a rather stupid and ignorant one even by the low standards one expects of bigots.  One of the ways true satire reveals itself as satire -- besides being published in the Onion -- is by stating things that almost utterly everyone should know is simply not true.  Indeed this sort of thing is what distinguishes satire from a hoax and general trolling.
