It’s fascinating to see today’s anti-racists attempting to distance themselves from a man who was one of their own. Steve Sailer points out that the late Fred Phelps was not only a Democrat, but a hard core anti-racist and civil rights hero:
The first notable cases were related to civil rights. “I systematically brought down the Jim Crow laws of this town,” he claims. Phelps’ daughter was quoted as saying, “We took on the Jim Crow establishment, and Kansas did not take that sitting down. They used to shoot our car windows out, screaming we were n***** lovers,” and that the Phelps law firm made up one-third of the state’s federal docket of civil rights cases…. In the 1980s, Phelps received awards from the Greater Kansas City Chapter of Blacks in Government and the Bonner Springs branch of the NAACP, for his work on behalf of black clients.
And yet, strangely enough, there don’t seem to be too many lefties mourning him. Well, they do tend to devour their own.
