Bryan Fischer: CNN is ‘What the Gay Gestapo looks like in action’

To say that Bryan Fischer is furious about his failed appearance on CNN earlier this week where anchor Carol Costello threw him off the program would be a bit of an understatement, as yesterday he went off on an epic rant against the “gay gestapo,” saying that Costello’s refusal to allow him to spew his bigotry unchallenged on national television is exactly what “the gay gestapo looks like in action.”

Fischer made multiple references to the “gay gestapo,” proclaiming that “the stormtroopers of the homosexual movement” and “the Nazis in the gay gestapo” will punish anyone who says that “homosexuality is immoral, it is unnatural, and it is unhealthy – that is a simple, straightforward statement of fact” because “it is a crime of blasphemy against the god of gayness”:

We really hope that this serves as a wake-up call to any media outlets who might be thinking of giving Fischer any sort of platform from which to promote his radical agenda in the future, because this is unbridled bigotry that drives it.

Fischer is the spokesperson for the American Family Association, an anti-gay “hate group,” as designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Update: CNN anchor Carol Costello has fired back at Fischer, who last week denounced her for hanging up on his claims that the Nazi Party was founded by gay men: “Well Mr. Fischer, if that’s the definition of the gay gestapo, then I’m a proud card-carrying member.”
