Hate group spokesman: Gays are the ‘#1 perpetrators of hate crimes in America’

Friday, May 20, 2011

Yesterday, we reported Bryan Fischer, the openly bigoted Director of Analysis for Government and Policy for the certified hate group American Family Association, said that “gays are Nazis.”

Today, Fischer tops that: “Number one perpetrators of hate crimes in America: homosexual activists, gay activists, the homosexual lobby.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center classifies the American Family Association as a “hate group” for its efforts towards “combating the homosexual agenda” — Fischer has proposed criminalizing homosexual behavior and has advocated forcing gays into “reparative” therapy.

  7. I don’t think I’ve ever met a gay person that didn’t live by the “live and let live” motto… this guy needs to get his brain lacquered.

  8. We need laws against inciting to discrimination.

  9. Yeah, we’re sneaky too. All of our hate crimes are committed while being assaulted and/or while committing suicide. Aren’t we just a bunch of evil bastard! ::eye roll::

  12. I’m getting real sick and tired of seeing all the hate themed articles make the news and not the successes of gay rights. I’m just sick of all the hate we harbor and why we can’t see everyone as equal.

  13. lol…give this guy a mirror… he needs to look at himself…

    Posted on Friday, May 20, 2011 at 7:38pm
  14. We gays are just so happy that we hate everyone, don’t we. Because we are the ones you see beating others up because we are SO prejudice against everyone else, and we don’t like equality… Oh, and SO many people are committing suicide because of us… I wanna give him a piece of my mind!

  16. Deeply closeted self-loathing gays, perhaps. (Seriously, the frequency of closet cases among homophobic nutjobs…)

  17. Ya, because of people like him spoutin off his bigoted ideas!

    Posted on Friday, May 20, 2011 at 7:55pm
  18. WHAT????

    Posted on Friday, May 20, 2011 at 7:55pm
  19. I’m so sick of Christians trying to claim being victimized simply because, finally, gay people are standing up for their dignity. These poor, beleaguered wingnuts who are so startled that there are people who don’t share their worldview. How sad.

  20. LOLLLLL that just made my day XD so stupid XD

  21. Perpetrators? You spelled targets wrong (And no, we’re probably not, but it’d be more accurate than this yutz)

  22. He’s the #1 perpetrator of hate crimes in America. Jackass.

    Posted on Friday, May 20, 2011 at 8:33pm
  23. Makes about as much sense as religion, to me anyways..

    Posted on Friday, May 20, 2011 at 8:39pm
  24. He probably means that gays are the main reasons why there are hate crimes agaist gays just the way women are the main reason there are crimes against them and blacks are the reason why in the Stupid States of America black men are still called “boys”… If we weren’t there, of course there would be any discrimination! Bunch of imbeciles…

  25. #1 reason why there are hate crimes in Stupid States of America: There are people living there.

  26. They are the reason why Christians are bad people, I am a Christian though I may call myself follower of Jesus instead because people like him ruining the image that Jesus wanted.

  27. Wow, I’d like to find out more about how this so called man was brought up. How does le live now. Apparently he was and still is lacking in LOVE! He probably doesn’t even know what that feeling is like. I’m just say’n…:)

  28. Trouble is.. him and those of like mind– and there re more than a few.. actually believe this nonsense.. That’s scary..

  29. I wonder how many members of AFA are closeted?

  30. He REALLY wants to kick us while we’re down, doesn’t he?

    Posted on Saturday, May 21, 2011 at 2:25pm
  31. Of course there is no evidence of any of this. It would be easy to check.

  32. It’s obviously not true, the village people had a Red Indian,Cowboy, Construction Worker, biker and Sailor.—–No Nazis at all. I think he should apologise to the KKK and the Westboro Baptists who have been working so hard at being America’s biggest peddlers of hate only for some vaguely gay conspiracy to take the credit.

  33. I don’t get it. I really wish he’d explained it… I want to know if he *really* thinks he actually has some logical or sensible reasoning.

  34. Gays are perpetrating hate crimes merely by existing?

    Existing != Harassment.

    Harassment implies aggression, existing is passive.

  35. Can’t this guy be sued for falsifying history? I know some Holocaust deniers have been.

  36. gay men have been beatened at raided bars, been considered criminals for loving in a non traditional manner. If we dont do what they say its considered hate, gay people have been forced out of the military, out of jobs, etc. I have never heard of gays being violent towards other people. If you consider glitterbomb (a peaceful act) i may add that doesnt require conversion or fists then old sir you are a jackass.
