Fred Phelps was undoubtedly the master of hate, but more importantly he was looked at as an entertainer, a comedian, a deranged buffoon. His antics cursed his family and made them the subject of ridicule.

Well, now that Fred's dead, someone has to fill his shoes, especially during Christmastime (which, BTW, Fred hated, of course).

Nowadays when it comes to a hate-filled Christmas, nobody does like the extreme Right. Nobody.

And nobody looks as ridiculous.

But the 70-plus confirmed attendees turned out to be more like six men, most of them dressed like bikers, and one middle-aged woman.

And the event was noticed more because of the people who - dressed as bananas for some other event - walked past, saying: "They can't agree on anything, but we all agree that bananas are tasty!"
