Top thirteen insults to Colorado and America by Westboro Baptist Church's late Fred Phelps

Big photos, videos below.
We're all taught not to speak ill of the dead. But in the case of Fred Phelps, head of Kansas' vile Westboro Baptist Church, who breathed his last yesterday, we're going to make an exception.

To mark Phelps' passing, we've combined two offerings -- a 2013 Jenn Wohletz post recapping the top five times Phelps and the WBC got owned and a 2011 roundup of the top eight WBC insults against Colorado. That's a lucky thirteen ways to bid farewell to one of the most hateful figures in recent American history. Count them down below.

Number 13: Hackers on the hook

After WBC members proclaimed they would picket funerals of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims in 2012, a group of hacktivists appropriately named "Anonymous" hit the WBC right in the hard drive by crashing the holy hell out of Westboro's website, GodHatesFags.com, with a distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack (which in non-hacker terms means "your sh*t don't work -- mortgage your house and call Geek Squad). The unrepentant hackers stated that they will keep it up "until they are forced to put their inbred church tithes to use to pay for bandwidth." The same hackers also released a WBC member list, including personal contact information, and that move was certainly a violation of the church members' privacy.

But since picketing peoples' funerals is a particularly heinous violation of privacy, it's challenging to find anyone outside of the Westboro Baptist Church who cares.

Number 12: The motherf*cking Patriot Guard Riders

Everyone knows from the movies -- or real life if you are unlucky or stupid -- that screwing with a bunch of bikers is a bad idea. The Patriot Guard Riders (PGR) is an organization of motorcycle riders that attends funerals of police, firefighters and members of the armed forces, with permission; greets troops returning home; does volunteer work and helps protect grieving family members and friends at funerals that the WBC targets for protests. The PGR folks volunteer to put themselves, their bikes and their big, waving American flags between the funeral-goers and the WBC, shielding the funeral guests and drowning out the hateful bleating of the Westboros with patriotic songs -- and revving engines.

The PGR deserves some sort of award for "Most Amazing and Frequent Ownage of Westboro Baptist Church," preferably in trophy form: a statuette with a motorcycle running over a likeness of WBC's PR person, Shirley Phelps-Roper, Fred's disgusting daughter.

Continue to keep counting down the top thirteen insults to Colorado and America by Westboro Baptist Church's late Fred Phelps.

You should have kept it classy. I agree with Bree Miller, if you wanted to really stick it to them, you'd have wished him a peaceful journey and left it alone.

the Bible he preached from and the Bible I read are two different books. Mine is of peace and kindness his well you know. I forgive him for his blindness and hateful ways glad I'll never have to hear his hate anymore

I think George Takei said it best. "He was a tormented soul, who tormented so many." We should pity him, and not stoop to his level by picketing his funeral.

There is a special little corner of Hell waiting for him.

What's with the democrat bashing. That's no different from FP bullying of gays and people who didn't fall in line with his beliefs. We have to be careful with our words toward people we have a different opinion from. Lighten up.

If you speak ill of the dead, you're still an asshole. Why stoop to their level?

I have nothing but pity for the guy... I won't celebrate his passing because it wasn't a victory. His life was an example of how not to love. I hope I learn from that and never become it.

To bad he won't get to see all the servicemen and women in heaven since his spot in hell has been reserved for some time now

Hurl his mangy corpse into a drainage ditch, and go get a burrito.

Other than protesting his funeral, he's the one that has to deal with his own death. What else can you do. He's gone

Kelly Roller

He was excommunicated from his church which means like all those picket signs he'll be burning in Hell. A just reward.

The better thing to do is not acknowledge the fact that he even existed. Why continue to display his hatred in print media?

I just reminded everybody of that. The bulk of the KKK were Democrats, also.

Bree Miller

everyone that chooses to speak ill of him and picket his funeral is no better than him and his mindless followers.If you really want to stick it to WBC, celebrate by being kind to one another!

Phelps ran for office about a dozen times in Kansas...as a Democrat! He got over 30% of the vote running for the U.S. Senate.

Good riddance! I sincerely hope that hatred of this magnitude dies off quickly so that we can all live our lives without criticism and condemnation.

What is missing from most of the obituaries of Phelps? He was a Democrat! LOL

Show a little compassion. The man was clearly insane.

@Leet Brian "Mine is of peace and kindness"


LOL!
