-Under Construction- And you thought YOU were a douchebag? No. You got nothin'. Fred Phelps is the grand flaming asshole douchebag of the world. He hates people so much, he probably hates himself.
Internet users are probably familiar with the common troll. They are people who go online and harass people with hateful nonsense until someone wants to pound their stupid faces in with hammers. The internet has trolls.
And reality has Fred Phelps.
Ostensibly a Christian, Phelps preaches nothing but hatred and disrespect toward a truly staggering array of people. There are people who hate gays, Jews, Catholics, Irish People, and even Swedish People. However, Fred Phelps hates them all, and then some. He hates people that it is has honestly never occurred to anyone to hate before. He is an actual pioneer of hate itself.
Before we delve into the shrieking pit of utter madness that is the mind of Fred Phelps, let's ask where a complete venom dripping psycho even comes from in the first place. How does someone even manage to BE such an effective and clear villain?
He started out as a good guy.
You wouldn't know it at all from listening to him these days, but once upon a time, Fred Phelps was a civil rights lawyer. Yes, that is literally more shocking than "little Ani" growing up to be Darth Vader. He was pretty serious about it too, and actually managed to help end some racist laws.
He seems to remain non-racist against black people, and agrees with the separation of church and state. Those things are certainly good, but they may very well be the only good things about this guy. In every other way, he has done a complete 180 from making the world better to making it much more noisy and insane.
These days Phelps stands around waving signs with his congregation of hate, and reads stuff out of his bible to them. When they try to touch it he bares his teeth and scuttles backward, hissing "My precious..."
