Fischer: Gay activists should support Russia’s anti-gay laws in the name of diversity

BRIAN TASHMAN | Right Wing Watch
Monday, August 5, 2013

The results are always interesting when Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association thinks that he is being clever, as he was on his radio program late last week when he spent a few minutes discussing Russia’s recent ban on “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations around minors.”

The discriminatory legislation has been met with outrage and protests around the world, but Fischer doesn’t understand why since liberals and gay activists supposedly believe in diversity and, as such, they ought to be saying “hey, this is great!”

“We’ve got plenty of room in our multicultural world for all sorts of different cultural values and trends,” Fischer mockingly proclaimed. “Isn’t this wonderful what Russia is doing. Let’s celebrate diversity and let’s support this tradition in the nation of Russia”:

  12. I had to read this three or four times, as I didn´t think I was comprehending this ludicrous statement.

  18. Diversity is accepting people for who they are. This jerk doesn´t understand that.

    Posted on Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at 3:07am
  19. “You gay people should support our hatred of you out of tolerance.”

    Yeah… that´s not how tolerance works.

    Posted on Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at 3:08am
  20. “You gay people should support our hatred of you out of tolerance.”

    Yeah… that´s not how tolerance works. It´s like if Russia decided to ban all black people, then tell all of black people to support the ban out of respect to Russia´s laws.

  27. The true scary thing is that he truly believes what he is saying. He diversity huh? Well I welcome all extremist muslims who believe Christians ought to die with open arms. I bet he would frown on that huh? But here is the thing I don´t believe in that 100%.

  39. What a stupid old man

    Posted on Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at 3:49am
  40. Russia´s long entrenched hatred of LGBTs is nothing new. What is new is the proclamation that Dictator Putin made & has started especially with the 2014 Olympics coming up & the possibility of foreign visitors that are LGBT or LGBT supportive being kidnapped, tortured, raped, murdered &/or imprisoned. The world is dividing into two camps – LGBTs & those that hate them & that want them to die. So, has Putin ignited a forthcoming LGBT holocaust? Why doesn´t Bryan Fischer ask Jewish, Gypsy, German Labour Party leaders from WWII, homosexuals, objectors, Socialists, etc that survived the Holocaust if they supported Nazism? Bryan Fischer? Speaks like a fool & someone that has never had anything but a safe armchair, ivory tower life.

  51. I believe he is one of the closeted homosexuals that gets an erection talking about, watching, hearing about, or thinking about gay male sex. He is ashamed of who he is and therefore he hates all things gay.

    Posted on Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at 8:07am
  70. News flash, Steven William Leak: Russia hasn´t been a communist state since 1991. You´re 22 years out of date. The Russian Federation today is very much at the opposite end of the political spectrum to the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic of of 1917 to 1991. It´s much closer to a fascist state.
