Anti-Gay Westboro Leader Fred Phelps Has Extensive FBI File

By Steve Neavling

Fred Phelps, the founder of the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church, was no stranger to the FBI.

In fact, The Hill reports that Phelps was “well known to the FBI,” according to his newly released 250-page bureau file.

Phelps, who died in March 2014, first came on the FBI’s radar in 1967 when a confidential informant said Phelps was ““in need of psychiatric care” while he was leading Westboro.

Between 1993 and 2006, Phelps gained the attention of the FBI virtually every year.

In some cases, Phelps made claims that he was threatened by terrorists.

“It would appear that Mr. Phelps is intentionally provoking these types of responses,” the FBI wrote to a U.S. district attorney in 1993 regarding reported death threats against Phelps. “Large amounts of money and investigative time can potentially be wasted investigating these threat letters. Historically, very few, if any, of these types of cases have been prosecuted in the District of Kansas.”

“The FBI does have the responsibility to investigate and prevent potential violence against any person regardless of their religious or political views, however,” continued a supervisory senior agent, whose name is redacted.

DHS Employee Secretly Prepared for Race War And Operated Anti-White, Anti-Gay Web Site

By day, Ayo Kimathi works for Homeland Security, often procuring guns and ammunition. By night, the man known as “the Irritated Genie” prepares for a race war, the Atlantic reports.

Turns out, Kimathi runs an anti-white, anti-gay site, War Is on the Horizon, the Atlantic wrote. Kimathi was exposed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate crimes.

It’s safe to say Kimathi’s bosses aren’t happy.

Saying she was “stunned,” Kimathi’s former supervisor said the DHS would never have allowed him to operate a hate site had the department known, the Atlantic reported.

“To see the hate, to know that he is a federal employee, it bothered me,” his former supervisor said.

Kimathi, it appears, isn’t a fan of some popular black people, including President Obama, whom he calls “a treasonous mulatto scum dweller.” His other enemies? Oprah Winfrey, Whoopi Goldberg and Condoleeza Rice.

When asked about the site, Kimathi dismissed it as entertainment and a way to sell concert and lecture videos.
