The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer found himself talking to a dial tone after CNN’s Carol Costello hung up on him during an interview in which he claimed the “Mix It Up at Lunch Day” anti-bullying program promoted “the gay lifestyle” and reaffirmed his previous musings about the Nazis being gay.
After Costello asked him about “Mix It Up at Lunch Day,” which the AFA vehemently opposes, Fischer launched into his sermon on the mount of stupidity and bigotry:
“[W]hat parents need to understand, this is about pressuring public schools and students in public schools to accept homosexuality as a normal, healthy alternative to heterosexuality. It’s interesting to me they’re doing this on October 30, the day before Halloween, and what this program is, it’s like poisoned Halloween candy. Somebody takes a candy bar, injects it with cyanide, the label looks fine, it looks innocuous, it looks fine, it’s not until you internalize it that you realize how toxic it is. And we want parents to be aware that any program that any program that comes from the Southern Poverty Law Center is going to be toxic to their students’ moral health.
Costello then got into Fischer’s favorite topic, Nazi homosexuality, quoting statements he made in September 2010:
“Hitler recruited around him homosexuals to make up his Stormtroopers, they were his enforcers, they were his thugs. And Hitler discovered that he could not get straight soldiers to be savage and brutal and vicious enough to carry out his orders, but that homosexual solders basically had no limits and the savagery and brutality they were willing to inflict on whomever Hitler sent them after. So he surrounded himself, virtually all of the Stormtroopers, the Brownshirts, were male homosexuals.”
By the time Fischer gets into defending that load of crap, Costello’s had enough and flushes it and him down the drain: “That’s just not true. Thanks for your sharing your views, I guess.”
