Fox News Calls The Westboro Baptist Church "Left-Wing"

In a Fox News article detailing how a group of bikers banded together to prevent the Westboro Baptist Church from protesting the funerals in Newtown, Connecticut, the caption underneath the photo labeled the church as a “Left-Wing” cult, according to Newscorpse. Then in the article itself, the writer described church leader Fred Phelps as a Democrat, while the bikers—who were the heroes of the piece—were labeled “conservatives.”

Yes, earlier in his life Fred Phelps was a Democrat. But after a very public falling-out with the party over its support of gay marriage decades ago, his views have become so radical that he really doesn’t fall within the boundaries of either political side. Check out a screengrab of the article below:
