In anticipation of Bryan Fischer’s Values Voters speech tomorrow morning, our pals at Right Wing Watch have rounded up some of the AFA personality’s most jaw-dropping moments:
Mike Huckabee spoke this morning. Mitt Romney’s on as I type this. Several GOP Senators and members of Congress are on deck. And tomorrow? A man who’s on record saying “homosexuals in the military gave us…six million dead Jews” (even more offensive here at Yom Kippur, the very day that Fischer will be speaking).
This is “values voting”? In this America that we all share? Hmm. Interesting.
-The time Mr. Fischer said “homosexuals should be disqualified from public office”
-The time Mr. Fischer said that “homosexuals in the military gave us…six million dead Jews.“
-The time Mr. Fischer called on Christian conservatives to breed gays and progressives out of existence
-The time Mr. Fischer declared that “Every time an HIV-infected male has sex with another male, it’s essentially the same as plunging an infected heroin needle into his arm. He’s passing on a potential death sentence, just as the Taliban seeks to do on a foreign battlefield.”
-The time Mr. Fischer said only gays were savage enough for Hitler
-The time Mr. Fischer invoked a Biblical story about stabbing “sexually immoral” people with spears, saying we need this kind of action in modern day
-The time Mr. Fischer compared gays to heroin abusers
-The time Mr. Fischer told us to just shut up
-The time Mr. Fischer oddly interpreted past historical oppressions
-The time Mr. Fischer directly compared laws against gay soldiers to those that apply to bank robbers
